    Hi Mom's, we are boarding the Disney Magic in Jan 2017 between 12:30 and 1:30, can we get a bite to eat for lunch on board at one of the snack bars (pizza, chicken fingers etc) at that time or do we need to eat lunch prior to embarkation? Thanks!

    Welcome back, Georgia! One of the very first things guests get to do when they board Disney's magical ships is head right to lunch! I know our vacation with Disney Cruise Line has officially begun when my family and I are relaxing at a table enjoying the first of many delicious meals onboard!

    Check your Personal Navigator that you'll receive as you check in at port (or the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App) for specific times on your particular sailing, but typically, Cabanas up on Deck 9 will be open until about 3:00 for lunch on embarkation day. Usually Carioca's restaurant onboard will be open for bit of a shorter time at lunch too, maybe until around 2:00.

    You'll also find the Quick Service spots on the pool deck open. Daisy's De Lites, Pete's Boiler Bites, and Pinocchio's Pizzeria are all tasty spots to grab a quick bite. Then, you'll have plenty of time to explore the ship and settle into your stateroom before all of the activities begin! One thing you won't want to miss is the fabulous Sail Away Party up on Deck 9. It's the kick-off to a magical cruise!

    Have fun planning, and enjoy your winter getaway on the Disney Magic, Georgia!
