Disney Cruise Line’s original ship, the Disney Magic, underwent a stem-to-stern Re-Imagineering in 2013, which brought enhancements to the the ship resulting in new lounges, water features, and new and refreshed dining spaces (among other changes).
And now, further changes are coming to the Magic, including a brand new restaurant! Rapunzel’s Royal Table will debut on sailings beginning March 9, 2018.
Inspired by the film Tangled, the new rotational dining restaurant will feature Tangled characters along with live music and entertainment, similar to the new Tiana’s Place aboard the Magic’s sister ship, the Disney Wonder. (Rapunzel’s will likely replace Carioca’s on the Magic).
Rapunzel’s Royal Table will bring guests into the kingdom of Corona, in the presence of Rapunzel herself accompanied by the Snuggly Duckling Thugs.
Glowing wish lanterns will set the scene in the regal ballroom of the royal castle, also adorned with Rapunzel’s artwork. Guests will be invited to celebrate Rapunzel’s birthday by the King and Queen of Corona.
A themed menu will complete the experience. We have to wonder if any of the dishes will be served on Rapunzel’s frying pan like the ones you’ll see at the Bon Voyage Adventure Character Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno in Disney World!
Further enhancements to the ship will include a refreshed Vibe (one of the dedicated spaces for teens), the addition of Club Disney Junior in the children’s Oceaneer Club, and a redesigned Cove Cafe (the adult’s coffee shop), which will sport a refreshed tropical theme.
So, Magic passengers, get ready to sail with Rapunzel on what’s sure to be the “Best! Cruise! EVER!!”
