Disney Magic's spacious cabins are designed with family comfort in mind. They're practical but also stylish and comfortable, providing respite from the bustling public spaces onboard. One of the most attractive features, especially among those with little ones in tow, is ample storage space -- thanks to wide closets, additional shelving and elevated beds perfect for keeping suitcases out of the way.

To raise the level of convenience, all Disney Magic staterooms have a split-bath configuration, with a toilet and sink in one room and a shower–tub combo and second sink in another. Both bathrooms offer shelving below the vanity.

Disney Magic Inside Cabins Have the Same Amenities as Oceanview and Verandah Staterooms

Looks-wise, inside, oceanview and balcony (a.k.a. verandah) cabins on Disney Magic all share the same nautical color scheme of navy blues, reds and whites. These cabins also include pull-across privacy curtains that separate the main bed from the sofa bed. (All cabins include a single sleeper sofa, except the Concierge-level cabins, which have a double sleeper sofa.) Many cabins also have a pulldown bed that descends from the ceiling for a fourth person, allowing a wide variety of passenger configurations to share the space comfortably.

Additional amenities include a Euro-top mattress (similar to a pillow-top mattress), Frette linens, 22-inch flat-screen TV, H2O Plus bath products (suites feature an upgraded brand), individual climate control, a mini-fridge (not stocked unless in a Concierge-level cabin, which offers a small selection of complimentary items) and a safe. Disney Magic cabins also include two hair dryers -- one in the desk drawer and another built into the bathroom wall (this one doesn't have much power and thus will require more time to dry, especially thick or long hair). Cabins are equipped with both U.S. and European outlets.

Hint: The ship has six cabins known by insiders as "secret porthole rooms." They aren't secret at all, but they are a great bargain. They are cabins all the way forward on Deck 5 with portholes that are obstructed to varying degrees, and they're sold at the cost of the most expensive inside cabin on Disney Magic. Cabins 5020, 5022, 5520 and 5522 have virtually nothing blocking the windows, except rails and a pulley; 5024 and 5524 are almost completely blocked with barrels. Still, if you're considering an inside cabin but would love the light of day for no extra charge, these are your best bet.

Interior: Disney Magic inside staterooms come in two different subcategories: Standard Inside and Deluxe Inside. Standard Inside cabins -- found on Decks 2, 5, 6 and 7 -- are 184 square feet and can fit up to four passengers, except for those on Deck 2, which sleep only up to three. Deluxe Inside cabins offer all the same amenities but add more space (214 square feet).

Oceanview: Also measuring 214 square feet, Disney Magic Deluxe Oceanview Staterooms (there is no standard category) are located on Decks 1, 2, 5, 6 and 7. These rooms bring the outdoors in with one large porthole window (Deck 1 cabins have two small port holes, instead) and also offer all the same amenities as interior cabins.

Verandah: Disney Magic verandah cabins come in two configurations – the Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah and the Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah – and they differ only in size. The former -- located on Decks 5, 6, 7 and 8 -- offers 268 square feet (including the balcony) and sleeps either three or four, while the latter, found only on Deck 8, boasts a comfortable 304 square feet (also including the balcony) and sleeps up to five. Be aware: A handful of deluxe balcony cabins on Deck 7 have obstructed views.

Amenities are in line with what's offered in the other non-suite categories on Disney Magic; balconies come with patio furniture (two plastic tables and a small cocktail table) and are equipped with childproof locks and either Plexiglas or solid whitewall railings for added safety. Those booking connecting cabins can request to have the balcony partition removed to expand the outdoor space.

Disney Magic Concierge Rooms Come with a Bevy of Added Perks

Disney Magic's suites are classified as Concierge-level and are offered in a variety of configurations. Passengers staying in these suites receive a number of perks inside and outside the room, including priority embarkation and disembarkation, and a dedicated concierge that assists with shore excursions, dining and spa reservations and nursery stays. A welcome cocktail party; free Wi-Fi (up to 100 MB), and access to the private Disney Magic Concierge Lounge are also offered free of charge to concierge-level passengers.

Those looking for a Concierge-level experience have four suites from which to choose -- all on Deck 8. The Concierge Royal Suite with Verandah, Concierge 1-Bedroom Suite with Verandah, and Concierge 2-Bedroom Suite with Verandah all come with the aforementioned perks, as well as significantly more space, enclosed bedrooms, a whirlpool tub in one of the bathrooms, living and dining areas, upgraded Elemis bath amenities, Frette bath towels, a wet bar, a walk-in closet, additional TVs, an iPod docking station and more storage space.

Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah were added to the Concierge level during Disney Magic’s 2023 refurbishment. Also located on Deck 8, these staterooms offer 304 square feet of space (including the balcony) and can sleep up to 5 guests in a combination of queen bed, single sleeper sofa and two pull-down beds. They feature all the same amenities as the rest of the Concierge-level suites except for the dining rooms and whirlpool tub.

All Concierge cabins boast a neutral color scheme, with creams, browns and pops of muted violet and sky blue.

At 614 square feet (including the balcony), the Concierge 1-Bedroom Suite is the smallest suite on Disney Magic. It has one bedroom that sleeps five and one and a half bathrooms.

One category up is the 945-square-foot Concierge 2-Bedroom Suite with Verandah, which sleeps up to seven passengers with two bedrooms and two and a half marble-and-granite bathrooms.

The largest of Disney Magic's accommodations is the Concierge Royal Suite with Verandah. It also has two bedrooms, two and a half baths (both marble and granite) and sleeps up to seven but offers more space -- 1,029 square feet.

Our only gripe is the balcony furniture is the same as that of lower-level cabins (plastic chairs and a small cocktail table) as opposed to the upgraded arrangements you typically see in suites on other cruise lines. Otherwise, the additional space (balconies in Concierge-level cabins are larger than those in balcony cabins) is a nice perk.

Disney Magic Accessible Cabins

The wheelchair-accessible cabins on Disney Magic are enormous, and they're available in inside, ocean-view, balcony and suite categories. Accessible cabins on the aft end of the ship also have wider balconies (some 30 feet across). All accessible cabins are equipped with lowered closet bars and, in the bathroom, a ramped threshold, lowered towel bars, toilet grab bars and roll-in shower with a fold-down seat, grab bars and adjustable-height showerhead. There also is an emergency button next to the bed and cord in the bathroom -- both of which must be activated by Guest Services.
