New 'Tangled'-theme restaurant, teen club, adults cafe coming to Disney Magic

Disney Magic will emerge with the changes March 9, on sailings from Miami Disney Magic will emerge with the changes March 9, on sailings from Miami

Disney Cruise Line continues to invest in its ships and the first, 1998-built Disney Magic, will be getting several new additions in the spring.

Families will have a new dining experience at Rapunzel’s Royal Table, inspired by Disney’s 'Tangled.' This table-service venue will feature characters and live entertainment that transports diners to the kingdom of Corona for an evening of music and interactive fun.

The setting will be a ballroom in the royal castle, lit by glowing wish lanterns and adorned with colorful drawings that reflect Rapunzel’s artistic talents. There, the king and queen of Corona invite everyone to take part in a festive celebration of Rapunzel’s birthday and the anniversary of her return to the kingdom.

Throughout dinner, there will be live entertainment including singing and dancing led by the maître d’, a merry band of musicians, the mischievous Snuggly Duckling Thugs and Rapunzel herself. Themed menus, special activities and, to cap the evening, a parade, are planned.

For teens, Vibe, the space reserved for ages 14-17, is being transformed into a trendy urban loft environment. There, teens will get a new coffee and smoothie bar, video and virtual reality games, and activities like a DJ spin-off and movie-making. Activities at Vibe are organized and hosted by trained Disney counselors.

Adults can relax at Cove Café, an adult-exclusive retreat that will be redesigned in a sophisticated tropical style. This is the place to sip a specialty coffee or tea throughout the day, or indulge in wine or a cocktail and light bites during the evening hours.

In this serene setting by the Quiet Cove Pool, adult beverage tastings are also available at select times for an additional fee. Steps away, the adjacent Signals Bar will also be transformed with a similar look.

Elsewhere around Disney Magic, other enhancements will include the addition of Club Disney Junior in Disney’s Oceaneer Club for children and a redesigned Rainforest Room with steam and hydrotherapy in Senses Spa for adults.

The enhancements debut on Disney Magic starting March 9, on sailings from Miami. The four- and five-night cruises visit Key West, Nassau and Castaway Cay. In mid-May, the ship repositions to Europe for the summer.
