New Spaces Announced for the Disney Magic in March 2018

The Disney Magic is getting another update and will debut brand new spaces onboard in March 2018.


An Enchanted Dining Experience just for families

It looks like Cariocca’s will be getting a new look and Tangled will be the inspiration for the new dining space.  This will pair perfectly with the unique Tangled musical performances on each Disney Magic sailing.  This regal ballroom, set in the royal castle, will be lit by floating lanterns and filled with live entertainment celebrating Rupunzel’s Birthday & her return to the kingdom.  Even the princess herself will greet guests along with the mischievous thugs from the Snuggley Duckling.

This is the current Carioca’s Restaurant

Redesigned Retreat Just for Teens

The Vibe, a teen club for guests ages 14-17, is also getting a fresh look.  The new trendy urban loft environment will offer cool activities like a DJ spin-off and movie making.  The teens and their friends will also be able to enjoy coffee and smoothie bar, as well as video and virtual reality games.

Redesigned Exclusively for Adults

Cove Cafe’ will be redesigned in a sophisticated tropical style providing the perfect place for adults to relax and sip a specialty coffee or tea throughout the day.  This adults only retreat will also offer wine, cocktails and light bites during the evening hours.  These beverages and food come with a minimal charge to guests.

The Rainforest Room in Senses Spa will also be redesigned and for the younger set Club Disney Junior will be added to the Oceaneer Club.

Since the ship will not be going into dry dock for these changes & will continue to sail, guests onboard will face some changes in their activities & dining rotation.  Disney has released information that lets guests know their evening meal in Carioca’s will be replaced by the Cabanas restaurant & will still be served table service style.

Thank you for reading.

New Skipper Canteen opens today in Magic Kingdom

Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen

Beginning today, your guests can set off on a culinary adventure featuring “World Famous Jungle Cuisine” at the new Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen in Magic Kingdom® Park at Walt Disney World® Resort.


Located steps from the legendary Jungle Cruise attraction, this new 222-seat table-service restaurant is staffed by the wisecracking crew of the Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd.  Diners are seated in one of three dining destinations inside the company’s headquarters-turned-restaurant: the mess hall; the jungle-inspired parlor once used by the company’s founder, Dr. Albert Falls and his family; or the former meeting room of the mysterious Society of Explorers and Adventurers.

The adventurous menu features bold and flavorful tastes inspired by the exotic flavors of the rivers traveled on the Jungle Cruise. Guests can try Trader Sam’s head-on shrimp, Dr. Falls’ signature grilled steak or the house-made arepas with slow-cooked beef, black beans, tostones and queso fresco. Little ones can enjoy items such as Junior Skip’s special mac and cheese. And for dessert, there is a Kungaloosh! – an African-inspired chocolate cake served with caramelized bananas and cashew-caramel ice cream. Refreshing non-alcoholic specialty beverages, Punch Line punch and Schweitzer Slush, will also be offered.

The Disney Dining Plan will be accepted at Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen. At the time of opening reservations were not currently available online, guests please see the attendant at the podium for availability.

Sci-Fi Dine-In Restaurant: 4 Things to know + New Breakfast

The Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant in Hollywood Studios is one of my family’s favorite restaurants in Hollywood Studios.  The atmosphere is unlike any other as you are seated in a classic 1950’s car table while you watch black and white movie clips from movies like Godzilla.  This table service restaurant is a must-see and is on the Disney Dining Plan.

Lets start with 4 tips and end with the news of breakfast being served.

1.  Dine while watching old time movies:  As you are guided to your car table by a your car-hop, take in the details of this one-of-a-kind restaurant.  There are stars shining overhead as the car lights glow.  Watch old movies that are enjoyable & entertaining, but are only clips and you will see the same clips more than once if you eat slow enough.


2.  Request a Car automo-booth:  Some table are just tables with regular chairs around them & a booth on one side of the car.  The preferred tables have 3 bench seats, with tables in front of each seat for your food.  Each bench seat can fit 2, so only 6 people will fit in a single car automo-booth.  If you are a party of 4, you may pick up some hitchhikers along the way…  By requesting one of these popular car booths, your weight may be slightly longer.


3.  Try a milkshake:  Be sure not to miss the old fashioned milk shakes served at the Sci-Fi Dine-In the Oreo Cookie is my favorite!  if you are on the Disney Dining Plan, you can order water to drink & swap your drink for a milkshake & still be able to order dessert with your meal.


4.  Don’t miss dessert:  Even though it is tempting to order a milkshake with your meal & then skip dessert, you must try at least one dessert to share.  I recommend the House-made Sci-fi Candy Bar or the Out-of-this-World Turtle Cheesecake.  These unique desserts look as good as they taste.

For all of you early risers out there  Breakfast is coming!  This is only a test period for breakfast and begins on November 1st 2015 to January 23rd 2016.  Reservations are now open.  If you are going to be in Hollywood Studios during the test time, don’t miss out on the opportunity to try some of their unique breakfast offerings:

  • Puff Pastry filled with Scrambled Eggs, Crab, Asparagus and Gruyère Cheese with Roasted Tomatoes
  • Grilled Beef Tenderloin on Baby Spinach, with Bacon and Cheddar Custard on a Roasted Tomato and Cheesy Horseradish Potatoes
  • Scrambled Eggs, Crispy Bacon, Sausage Links and Breakfast Potatoes
  • Macadamia Crusted Brioche French Toast with Mascarpone and Fresh Berries

This experience is available for a limited time and is in addition to the regular lunch and dinner offerings. The price for breakfast is $23.99 per adult and $12.99 per child age 3 to 9 (tax and gratuity not included). Meals are one table-service entitlement on the Disney Dining Plan.

Thank you for reading!  My name is Melissa and the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant is one stop that we make on almost every trip.  My kids beg to go back over and over again.I am also a travel agent with Main Street Adventures Travel Agency.  Thank you to my clients that trust me to assist you in planning your Disney vacations and if you are not a current client, be sure to contact me when you think of planning your next trip to Disney World; my planning service costs nothing extra over booking directly through Disney.  😉

Garden Grill Restaurant: Reservations for breakfast & lunch now available

Beginning Nov. 8, 2015, you can enjoy Character dining all day long at Garden Grill Restaurant at Walt Disney World® Resort. Served family style and all-you-care-to-enjoy, the menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner are inspired by the garden-grown theme of The Land at Epcot®. And while you dine, you can meet popular Disney pals, including Mickey Mouse, Pluto, Chip and Dale, as they revolve around vibrant views from the Living with the Land attraction. (Characters are subject to change).

For breakfast, served from 8-10:30 a.m., you can enjoy favorites like biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, Mickey waffles and the restaurant’s signature item, Chip’s Sticky Bun Bake.

And at lunch, served from 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m., you can feast on all-you-care-to-enjoy favorites from the dinner menu, including “Living with the Land” Harvest-inspired Farmer’s Salad, char-grilled sliced filet of beef, roasted all-natural sliced turkey breast with freshly-harvested vegetables and scrumptious side dishes.

Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Harvest Feast will continue to be available for dinner from 4-8 p.m. daily.

All meals at Garden Grill require one table-service entitlement on the Disney Dining Plan.

The next time you visit Epcot, be sure to add Garden Grill to your list of dining reservations, it is one of our family’s favorites. This fun, rotating restaurant allows you to look down in the Living With The Land attraction while you enjoy your meal and meet the characters.  Don’t forget your autograph books!  🙂

Meeting the characters at Chef Mickeys is always fun, but don't take my word for it. Look at the smiles on the faces of my children.
