Disney Magic Cruise From Miami

The Disney Magic Cruise Ship

All of the sailings from Miami are on the fabulous Disney Magic cruise ship. She was the first of the Disney Cruise ships to be launched. Built in 1998 she is the sister ship of the Disney Wonder.

The Classic Disney ships are 984 feet long and 106 feet wide. This makes the Magic and the Wonder very manageable in terms of navigating around, but they are still large enough to have plenty for all the passengers to be entertained.

The Disney Magic can carry up to 2,713 passengers at full capacity. The 950 crew are from many different countries around the world.

There are 877 staterooms, of which three quarters are outside staterooms. There are 256 Inside Staterooms, 259 Oceanview, and 362 Verandah Staterooms.

The Disney Magic sails from Miami at the start and the end of the year, and it is following this pattern for 2021 and 2022.

Disney Magic Ship Features

The Disney Magic has many features which are unique to Disney Cruise Lines. There is plenty for all ages to keep them entertained on this magical ship!

You will certainly find plenty of great food on the Disney Magic. All Disney Ships have a rotational dining concept for their three main restaurants. This means that all guests dine in each of the restaurants onboard.

The great thing about rotational dining is that your dining team will come with you. So they get to know your individual dining preferences.

disney cruise animators palate

All of the Disney Ships have the Animator’s Palate Restaurant. This is a highly innovative design where the theme is of course, animation.

Lumiere’s is named after the character in Beauty and the Beast. This French inspired restaurant is beautifully themed.

Rapunzel’s Royal Table is one of the most popular restaurants on any Disney Cruise Ship. Experienced a royal banquet with Rapunzel, Flynn Ryder, and the Snuggly Duckling Thugs.

Of course, there is plenty to keep the kids busy. Disney Cruise Lines kids clubs are the best at sea. They are completely free for ages 3 to 18. Disney Cruise Lines is also one of the few to have a Nursery to look after children aged 6 months to 3 years (there is a charge for this service).

There are plenty of things to keep the adults entertained too. A large part of the ship is exclusively reserved for the over 18s only. Relax at the Quiet Cove Pool, grab a coffee at the Cove Cafe, enjoy the Disney Magic Bars and adult-exclusive entertainment. For the ultimate in relaxation, you can visit the spa or even spend some time in the Rainforest Room. If you want a romantic dinner or brunch head to the adults-only Palo restaurant.

Entertainment on a Disney Cruise is the very best at sea. Expect Broadway-quality shows and you won’t be disappointed. Twice Charmed: An Original Twist on the Cinderella Story, Tangled:The Musical, and Disney Dreams and Enchanted Classic are the shows on the Disney Magic.

The Buena Vista Theater shows a large selection of movies. You may even be fortunate enough to be on board when there is a movie premier which will be shown on the ship.

There are so many ways to keep entertained on the Disney Magic. The AquaDunk is unique to the Disney Magic. Try it if you dare.

Disney Cruise Miami Port

The port of Miami is one of the busiest cruise ports in the World. The Disney Magic has, for many years, sailed out of Miami for part of the year.

There was much excitement in Fall 2018 when it was announced that there would be a new cruise terminal in Miami which would accommodate another, larger, Disney cruise ship at Port Miami.

The intention was for Disney to have a larger Disney cruise ship in the Port of Miami from January 2023 all year round which would sail 5 and 4-night departures. The plan was that in January 2024 Disney would also have a ship in Miami which sailed a 3 and 4-night rotation just as the Disney Dream does from Port Canaveral.

At the time we could have expected that the new Disney Cruise Ship the Disney Wish would have sailed out of Miami. Or maybe the second of the new Disney Trident Cruise ships.

There were also plans for the train Brightline extension to go from Orlando International Airport to Miami. Imagine being able to get on a train at MCO following your Disney World Vacation and arrive in Miami for your Disney Cruise Vacation.

However, we all know that the world has changed since 2018. And the cruising world has changed very much.

Fast forward to the world of 2020 and the plans for the Miami Port Expansion have changed. But there is still much to be enthusiastic about for the Disney Cruise fan. Disney will now share the new Miami Cruise Port Expansion with MSC Cruises. Details are still scarce but we will continue to update you when we know any further plans for the Disney Cruise Miami Port.

Disney Cruise Miami Port Address

There are currently seven Cruise Terminals in the Port of Miami. The Disney Cruise Miami Port Address is Terminal F, North Cruise Boulevard, Miami, Florida 33132.
