    My husband and I are traveling out of NYC to Canada on the Magic in October. Will the pools be open or will we be in full Fall mode on the trip? We've done a couple of trips to the Caribbean - this is new territory for us! Any help is appreciated!

    Ahoy, Geneen!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited for your upcoming voyage to Canada! You and your husband are going to have such a MAGICal time sailing out of New York City. Fall is a gorgeous time in both New York and Canada, so you will be treated to beautiful scenery throughout your cruise! I recently booked a cruise out of New York and am already counting down the days until embarkation!

    In my experience, even if the outside temperature is on the chilly side, Disney Cruise Line will keep the pools open! For the Guests' comfort, the pools are heated to around 75 degrees, so don't forget to pack your swimsuits! During cruises where the air was a bit colder, there were blankets provided on deck as well as hot chocolate at the Beverage Station! Honestly, I love warm weather, but there was something so fun about being bundled up next to my husband with a hot chocolate looking out into the ocean.

    I highly recommend bringing a few more warmer clothes for this upcoming cruise. A light jacket or sweatshirt might come in handy for the evenings out on deck. Also, it may start out chilly in the morning but warm up by the afternoon. Layering your clothes while heading out on Port Adventures will ensure that you are properly dressed and comfortable while exploring each port of call!

    Geneen, I hope you have an incredible time aboard the Disney Magic! If you have any other questions before setting sail, please come back and visit us again!
