Disney Magic and Disney Wonder

Classic Design

At first glance, the ship's twin funnels and streamlined sculptural form reminds one of the legendary Queen Mary, and other great liners of the 1930s and 1940s. But in contrast, both the Disney Magic® and the Disney Wonder® bold colors, nautically inspired ornamentation and whimsical touches are contemporary, while also being distinctly Disney. Their exterior color scheme features a dark hull, bold red funnels, yellow striping and nautically inspired ornamentation. It is no accident that these colors are also the colors of Disney's most famous character, Mickey Mouse. In fact, the lifeboats are yellow instead of the typical orange in order to tie in the colors on his big yellow shoes.

Interior spaces were created through the efforts of dozens of different design experts from all over the world, under the direction of Walt Disney Imagineering.

Entering the ships' three-story atrium lobby, there is an ambiance of "comfortable elegance," also reminiscent of the Transatlantic ocean liners of the early 20th-century. The opulent lobby on the Disney Magic® is rich in color and boasts grand stairways. In contrast, interior finishes and furnishings reflect a modern influence that marries an Art Deco style, popular in the late 1920s and 1930s, with classical Disney whimsy. The Disney Wonder® features softer colors in the main atrium and has more of an Art Nouveau style.

Both the Disney Magic® and Disney Wonder® boast 875 spacious staterooms that were designed to offer maximum storage and useable space. They can comfortably accommodate at least three people, while family staterooms can hold up to five. Almost 75 percent of these are outside staterooms, and 44 percent of these also have private verandahs. All deluxe inside, oceanview and verandah staterooms feature a bath and a half, making it especially convenient for families. Both ships also feature 18 one or two-bedroom suites and two royal suites. These sell out quickly, so you must plan ahead for these.
