As the saying goes, “Everything is bigger in Texas!” If that’s true, I cannot wait to see the excitement of the Lonestar State when the Disney Magic arrives to Galveston in September.
Captain Mickey already received a Texas-sized welcome when he visited last week to get ready for the ship’s arrival. Check out these photos of him in Austin, joined by Cruise Director Clayton, in the KEYE-TV newsroom with anchors Erica Harpold, Mileka Lincoln and Hunter Ellis and meteorologist Allison Miller.
You saw how enthusiastically New Yorkers greeted the Disney Magic when she sailed into New York City – and we’re looking forward to an even bigger greeting from Texans next month! Plus, if the Disney Magic donned the world’s largest bumper sticker to show love for New York, I can only imagine how the ship will show love for Texas…
Texans, how will you welcome to the Disney Magic to your home?

If you’ve been to Skyline on the Disney Fantasy or the Disney Dream, most likely this chic lounge became one of your favorite spots in the ship’s nightlife district. With its “windows to the world,” you get an ever-changing bird’s-eye view of stunning city skylines in panorama – making it easy to feel like you’ve been transported without even stepping off the ship!
New to Skyline on the Disney Fantasy is a “passport” you can get stamped throughout your cruise for seven hand-crafted martinis, themed to each of the featured cities. By purchasing the Passport to Skyline, you end up saving the cost of one martini, plus some. What’s more, you get a cool keepsake – a booklet with recipes for the martinis and gorgeous photos of the seven city skylines.
Since this lounge on the Disney Fantasy is part of Europa, it showcases spectacular European locales, including Athens, Florence, Budapest, Paris, London, Barcelona and St. Petersburg.
Here’s the recipe for my favorite martini in Skyline. Can you guess which European city it represents?
1 ½ oz 901 Tequila
1 oz Grand Marnier
1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
3 oz Agave Nectar
1 Luma cube
Shake and strain with a pinch of paprika. Serve in a martini glass. Garnish with half paprika rim.

Ever wondered what Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, looks like at night?
I’ve been wondering that myself for years, and I finally got the chance to find out.
I was recently on the island working on a pretty cool photo project, which I’m looking forward to sharing on the Disney Parks Blog soon. (I don’t want to give away too much, but you’ll get a perspective of Castaway Cay you’ve never seen before.)
Since this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be on the island at night, Mickey, Goofy and I decided to embark on a photo expedition for a glimpse of a sight unseen by most: the night stars at Castaway Cay.
We were awestruck by the number of stars visible in the brilliant night sky. Take a look for yourself…
Like many Disney Cruise Line guests, I am thrilled that the ship is returning to Barcelona next summer for her fourth season in the Mediterranean. Not only is Barcelona a gateway to the amazing European destinations guests will visit on a four-, seven- or 12-night Disney cruise, a Barcelona Port Adventure before or after is a “must-do” to experience the city’s old-world charm and rich culture.
Imagine you and your significant other in place of Mickey and Minnie in this photo taken in Barcelona. If this thought makes you happy, click the Facebook “like” button below.

For many Americans, fireworks are a must for Fourth of July celebrations. And since a fireworks extravaganza is part of most Disney Cruise Line sailings, Disney cruisers will be celebrating with a bang on the high seas this week.
Here’s a glimpse at the awe-inspiring display you’d see if sailing on one of Disney’s ships, still the only cruise ships to have fireworks at sea.

Last week brought the first official day of summer, and with it, warm temperatures across the country! Luckily there are plenty of ways to stay cool on a Disney cruise, and in honor of the first summer at sea for Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, I want to show you the top five ways to get soaked on the Disney Fantasy.
AquaLab – Brand new to a Disney ship is AquaLab, a really cool interactive kids’ water play area invented by Donald Duck’s nephews – Huey, Dewey and Louie!
Donald’s Pool – You can’t miss Donald’s Pool, located midship, which is the perfect spot for splashing around with the whole family. (And as a food lover, I also have to mention it is right next to the quick service food stations!)
Quiet Cove Pool – Secluded and serene, the adults-only Quiet Cove Pool is the definition of relaxation. I love cooling off here with a cold beverage in hand.
Satellite Falls – Just want a quick dip before getting back to sun-bathing? Satellite Falls is a new water feature up on Deck 13 where adults can put their toes in the water or sit in the shade of a gentle rain curtain.
AquaDuck – Last, but certainly not least, is AquaDuck. As the first and only water coaster at sea, I don’t need to give much explanation for why this thrilling ride of twists and turns is my favorite place to get soaked on the Disney Fantasy!
