posted on February 17th, 2014 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line


One of the things I learned from my cruise in Europe last summer is that a little extra planning goes a long way for your days in port. Since the destinations we visit are rich in history and there is so much to experience, you’ll want to have a game plan ahead of time.

If you’re like me and want to make the most of your days in port, then check out our next “Mom’s Take” video with Disney Parks Moms Panelist Marcy for her valuable advice on how to do that. I know firsthand the suggestions she gives are good ones!

Exclusive Look at Disney Magic Renovation Tonight on Destination America

posted on January 18th, 2014 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line


I just got off the Disney Magic this morning after taking one of her first cruises from Port Canaveral since the ship’s massive transformation. I still cannot believe all of the incredible updates and enhanced experiences, and I had such a great time exploring and discovering what’s new and improved.
Disney Cruise Line's Disney Magic at Sea

I’m fascinated by what it took to complete a makeover of that magnitude in such a short period of time, and I know many of you must be, too. So I wanted to make sure you all know about tonight’s premiere of “Disney Cruise Line: ReImagined Magic” on the Destination America channel. The show will give an exclusive look at the redesign and renovation process with behind-the-scenes footage from the Navantia shipyard in Cadiz, Spain, and interviews with our Imagineers, cast and crew.

This hour-long special starts at 9 p.m. EST, so be sure to check your local listings for the specific channel number. After the show, let me know in the comments what you found most interesting about the Disney Magic’s transformation, one of the largest renovations ever performed in the cruise industry.
