We’re only into our second week of the dry dock process, and already we’re seeing glimpses of the Disney Magic transformation taking place! Pictured here are the stairs to AquaDunk, the new thrill slide which will start high atop the ship’s funnel.

The Stairs to AquaDunk on the Disney Magic

Many other new features for the upper decks are coming together, and the steelwork for the new Cabanas is in position. In addition, all staterooms are ready for their new furniture, carpet and beds!

To put the scope of this project in perspective, more than 3,000 people are working together on the Disney Magic transformation, including outfitters, shipyard workers, Disney Imagineers and cast members and Disney Magic crew members. These people represent more than 60 nationalities and more than 100 different companies.

Kudos to the entire team of people who are working together to make the Disney Magic even more beautiful than before. I, for one, cannot wait to see their 18 months of planning and hard work payoff when the reimagined Disney Magic sets sail from Miami!

  • I am also interested in the “Twist n Spout” water slide. We are cruising on The Magic in November and although I am an adult, I love water slides. This appeals to me more than the “Aqua Dunk”. Is there any chance at all that the children at heart will be able to ride this?

  • Jonathan, is the “Twist n’ Spout” water slide going to be accessible to adults or just the AquaDunk?

  • It takes an army to pull off this big of a transformation in such a short period of time! I’m sad though because the smokestack all lit up is my favorite place to take pictures :o( But don’t think that’s going to keep me from booking a cruise! :o)

  • Are you guys going to update Wonder next?

  • Please can we have more information, morephotos and then some more posts.

  • Looking forward to the my first ride on the AquaDunk!!! How is the atrium transformation progressing?
