“As Walt [Disney] said, ‘Our parks will never be completed as long as there’s imagination left in the world,” said Walt Disney World President George Kalogridis.

The same goes for Disney Cruise Line. After being named the No. 1 large cruise ship by “Condé Nast Traveler,” DCL’s first ship, the Disney Magic, isn’t stopping there. The ship is getting a stem-to-stern makeover and adding new adventure spaces for families, from a new lobby to the addition of Marvel characters for the first time.

Joe Lanzisero, senior creative vice president for Walt Disney Imagineering, said, “Walt Disney was a master storyteller and knew how to engage people’s emotions into stories. Our job is to take what we learned from Walt and apply it to the experiences on board our ships.”

The Disney Magic will relaunch in the fall with even more magic — some of which is inspired by DCL’s newer vessels, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.

Here are some highlights for the reimagined ship:

Grand Atrium Lobby

The lobby’s décor will be redone in art deco and inspired by the sea. Changes include new coral, blue and aquamarine carpet and new chandelier and furnishings. The cold-cast bronze statue of “Helmsman Mickey” will remain but will receive a makeover of its own to bring out its golden hues.

New Characters in Children’s Areas

Disney’s Oceaneer Club for children ages 3 to 12 will be reimagined to include Marvel superheroes, Toy Story characters, Tinker Bell and other fairies, and Mickey Mouse and friends.

The addition of the Marvel’s Avengers Academy marks the first appearance of Marvel characters on a Disney ship. In this high-tech command post, children will embark on special missions and operations training. Displays feature Iron Man’s suit of armor, Captain America’s shield and Thor’s hammer.

Adjacent will be the two-story Andy’s Room, featuring favorite characters from Disney-Pixar’s “Toy Story,” including Mr. Potato Head, Hamm and Slinky Dog.

Next door is Pixie Hollow, where children will be able to try on costumes or make crafts.

Also at the club will be Mickey Mouse Club decorated in Mickey’s signature colors of red, yellow and black. Children will be able to make crafts, play games and tinker with gears on Goofy Gears.

A new hub for the littlest pirates will be at Disney’s Oceaneer Lab, which will feature an animator’s studio, a pirate workshop and lab where kids get create experiments and art projects, and steer a ship through the Caribbean at navigator simulators.

New Nursery

The new It’s a Small World Nursery for the littlest cruisers is inspired by the style of Disney legend Mary Blair and offers age-appropriate fun and toys, and trained counselors.

Reimagined Upper Decks

The upper ship decks will soon include more water play areas, slides, interactive elements and more shade.

Perhaps the most thrilling addition will be the AquaDunk, pictured above, a three-story body slide that releases the rider straight down as a trap door releases under their feet. The slide extends 20 feet out over the ship’s side and is for riders taller than 48 inches.

The new 1,800-square-foot AquaLab is an interactive water playground for ages 3 and older that includes pop jets, geysers and bubblers. The Twist n’ Spout water slide for riders 38 to 64 inches tall has more than 250 feet of sliding fun of loops and turns.
