    1) What San Diego Pier (B Street or Broadway Pier) does Disney Magic use for cruises to the Panama Canal? 2) For on-board currency exchange, are fees charged for currency exchange transactions, if so, how much (cruise stops Mexico, Columbia, Grand Cayman)

    Hello there, Janet!

    Your Disney Cruise Line vacation aboard the Disney Magic will be absolutely magical. If you are sailing with little ones, your crew will love dining at the themed dining locations, like Animator’s Palate. Throughout your meal, the dining room will be transformed from a black-and-white palate to some of your favorite Disney movies. 

    Janet, when you are sailing out of San Diego Pier, you’ll embark out of the Port of San Diego, B Street Pier (1140 N Harbor Drive, San Diego, California 92101). Make sure to check your designated port arrival time once you complete “My Online Check-In” in advance. I like to show up about 30 minutes before my designated port arrival time to make sure I get my parking settled, and I can determine what terminal I’m leaving out of. 

    Janet, I checked with a friendly Cast Member about the transaction fees, and I’m happy to share that there are no transaction fees when you exchange currency onboard. Even when you are sailing, exchange rates can fluctuate, so you will want to check those rates closer to your trip. Shopping and making purchases aboard the ship is even easier when you can charge purchases and services to your stateroom folio

    I was even amazed when I could take advantage of my Disney Visa Card perks aboard my recent cruise with 10% off select merchandise purchases of $50 or more aboard the ship when I used my Disney Visa Card. I hope these tips lead to some smooth sailing. 

    May the magic be with you!
