    Are character breakfasts now available on 4 night cruises on the Disney Magic? We are going on our first Disney cruise in September and don’t want to miss out on dining with Mickey and friends at sea!

    Hi there, Erin!

    Welcome aboard! Planning for a first Disney Cruise is such an exciting time, I hope you are enjoying the countdown!

    While you won't currently find a traditional character breakfast on the Disney Magic like you might see at a Disney Park on land, don't worry! I promise you will never have to go far to get a character hug or find something amazing to eat.

    Dining on the Disney Magic includes:

    • The three main dining rooms where you will be assigned to eat dinner are Rapunzel's Royal Table, Animator's Palate, and Lumiere's
    • Palo for adults (you'll need reservations to dine here and there's an additional charge)
    • Cabanas, a buffet with lots of great options for adults and kids
    • Quick options to grab a bite (or an ice cream cone) around the pool deck
    • Snacks are available at different times in a variety of lounges
    One extra-special character dining option is offered on the Disney Magic and it's perfect for princess fans. The Royal Court Royal Tea includes sweet and savory snacks as well as some special time with a few of our favorite princesses. There is an additional charge for this activity and reservations are required.

    Now let's talk about characters! Mickey and his pals are sailing along and you will see them often around the ship. They are the stars of the show, after all! Character Greetings happen all day in plenty of different locations, including the beautiful atrium of the ship. It's not unusual for special guests to visit Disney's Oceaneer Club and Disney's Oceaneer Lab, too! 

    The best way to find both characters and dining options onboard is by using the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. That's where you'll see the activities planned, what time they start, and where the fun is happening for each day of your cruise. You can even peek ahead at the menu for dinner each evening!      

    There is one other dining option that deserves a little extra shout-out in my opinion: room service! I love ordering a snack while we take a break in the afternoon or get ready for dinner. Most items on the room service menu are included in your cruise fare, so order away!

    We are just skimming the surface of all the fun on a Disney Cruise, Erin. If you have more questions about your upcoming trip I hope you'll sail over and ask! 

    Keep moving forward!
