Disney To Ban Kids Onboard This Ship With Another Surprising Announcement

Disney To Ban Kids Onboard This Ship With Another Surprising Announcement

Disney Cruise Line has just revealed that its 2,500-passenger ship, Disney Magic, will undergo re-designed areas and new theming.

The vessel will go into dry dock early next year and will emerge in March with an adults-only café, transformed teen club, and a new family dining venue.

Adults-Only Escape

Adults will be able to relax at Cove Café, the adults-only retreat that will be redesigned in a sophisticated tropical style.

It will serve as the perfect place to sip tea or coffee during the day, and wine or a cocktail and light bites in the evenings- drink tastings are also available at select times here for an additional fee. The Signals Bar just a few steps away from the venue will also be renovated with a similar design.

What do you think of the adult-only areas onboard Disney ships? Does this sound like a dream or is this stepping away from what Disney cruises are really about? Have your say in our poll…


The new family dining venue will be themed around the story of “Tangled” and characters and live entertainment will transport guests to the kingdom of Corona for an evening of music and fun featuring Rapunzel.

Guests will step inside a regal ballroom-themed space, lit by glowing lanterns and adorned with colorful drawings that reflect Rapunzel’s artistic talent.

Throughout dinner, passengers onboard will be treated to spirited singing and dancing led by the maître d’, a band of musicians, and Princess Rapunzel herself.

It is all topped off with themed menus, special activities, and a lively parade; the charm of “Tangled” in Rapunzel’s Royal Table is the perfect pairing for “Tangled: The Musical” which is performed on each sailing.

Redesigned Teen Retreat

Vibe, the space onboard for teens aged 14-17 is being transformed into a space with an urban loft feel where teenagers can enjoy a new coffee and smoothie bar, play video and virtual reality games, and participate in a DJ spin-off and movie making.

Other highlights of Disney Magic’s re-design include the addition of Club Disney Junior in the Oceaneer Club for kids, and a redesigned Rainforest Room with steam and hydrotherapy in Senses Spa for adults.

The enhancements will debut aboard the ship starting March 9th 2018 on sailings from Miami, Florida. The four and five-night cruises visit Key West, Nassau, and Disney’s private island Castaway Cay. On May 14th, Disney Magic will re-position to Europe for the summer season.


In other recent Disney news, the brand-new stage show aboard Disney Dream is now “Beauty and the Beast”.

The show, which kicked off November 6th, features puppetry, a giant LED wall that will take you from place to place seamlessly within a blink of an eye and a cast that brings the entire performance to life.

It features classic songs from the original animated classic as well as the new live-action movie featuring Emma Watson.

Disney officials stated that the show will interweave classic storytelling with new technology, such as the LED wall, in the Disney Dream’s 1,340-seat Walt Disney Theatre.
