HISTORY

Disney Magic is a cruise ship operated by the Disney Cruise Line, a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company. As of July 2013, Disney Magic is based out of Barcelona, Spain. Built in 1998 by Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri, Disney Magic can hold approximately 2,700 passengers. As with other Disney cruise ships, the ship's horn blast plays an excerpt from Disney's famous flagship tune, '"When You Wish upon a Star". The Disney Magic's Godmother is Patricia Disney, former wife of Walt Disney's nephew, Roy E. Disney. Originally since the summer of 2000 Disney Magic had been offering weekly cruises to Castaway Cay and multiple Caribbean islands out of its home port in Port Canaveral, Florida. In June 2005, Disney Magic was dispatched to the West Coast in honor of Disneyland's 50th Anniversary celebrations. In May 2007, Disney Magic started her inaugural Mediterranean cruises out of Barcelona, Spain. At the end of the summer, she returned to her home port of Port Canaveral. In 2008, Disney Magic held the record for the highest regular toll paid for passage through the Panama Canal, at $331,200. The title later went to Coral Princess after paying $400,000 to transit the canal. Disney Magic returned to Barcelona in 2010 for another summer of Mediterranean cruises, as well as several northern European cruises before again returning to Port Canaveral. In May 2012, Disney Magic was relocated to New York City, where she sailed 8-night cruises to the Bahamas, New England, and Canada. In September she was relocated to Galveston, Texas for the remainder of the year and offers 4 Night Caribbean Cruises, 6, 7, and 8 Night Western Caribbean Cruises, and 8 Night Bahamian Cruises. In April 2013, Disney Cruise Line announced that Disney Magic would be renovated. The ship's cabins, lounges, restaurants and spa will be completely updated in addition to new features including; "Marvel's Avengers Academy", a play area based on Marvel's Avengers characters, the AquaDunk and the AquaLab, consisting of a pool and waterslide that will replace the ship's Mickey Pool. In June 2013, Disney Magic was repositioned to Barcelona, Spain for the summer. She will then undergo a six-week refurbishment before being repositioned to Miami, Florida for the remainder of 2013. In January 2014, Disney Wonder will take over for Disney Magic in Miami, bumping Magic to Port Canaveral for four months where she will sail similar 3 and 4-night Bahamian itineraries as Disney Dream.
