I want to explain what my family and I do every day while enjoying a family vacation at the Disney Magic Festival;
On the first day; we can arrive at the port of Copenhagen, Denmark around 1:00 pm, although you can board the boat at 11 am. We gave ourselves 3 hours of boarding time (the ship set sail at 4pm) so that we could explore Copenhagen before leaving for vacation. This day includes us exploring the boat and registering for the kids club. One of the wonders of Disney is their kids club. They have rooms for children of different ages to hang out, participate in activities and make new friends. This provides parents with an opportunity to be alone and let them know the safety and play of their children. After the cruise, everyone gathered on the 9th deck to start sailing and have fun in “Mickey’s Sailing Tour”. During this time, everyone waved to the passengers living in Copenhagen, and danced with Mickey and his friends on the stage. Once it is over, we will go to the theater to perform at 6:30 pm. Depending on your requested dinner time (6:00 pm or 8:30 pm), you will watch the theater performance at 6:30 or 8:30 pm in the evening, which is the opposite of your dinner time. I absolutely love acting. Disney brilliantly proposed the themes and special behaviors to attract the audience’s work.
Day 2 is “One Day at Sea”, so it means we didn’t stop anywhere. We love watching Disney movies at the Buena Vista Theater, competing in Vibe (a youth club), having lunch at Cabanas (buffet on the 9th floor), enjoying another theatrical performance and having dinner in one of the three carousels On this day, we all like dining restaurants (Lumiere’s, Animators Palate or Cariocas.) According to your room card, you will spin between these three different delicious restaurants. Tonight includes a formal dinner. This means that we are encouraged to dress up (such as dresses, skirts or men’s suits). I think the days at sea are one of the best days to take a boat. Disney offers guests a choice of Cabanas (9-level buffet), Lumiere (one of 3 revolving restaurants) or one of the 9th-level fast-service restaurants. Fast service restaurants include Daisy’s Delights (sandwiches, salads, fruit and biscuit stands), Pete’s Boiler Bites (hamburgers, hot dogs, tacos, etc…American fare type stands) and Pinocchio’s Pizza (where you can set up whatever you like Pizza racks for pizzas). Magic did an excellent job of making full-time A-level food, and ensured that the food was cooked in a fast manner, yet maintained the incredible flavor. Now, food is not the only reason I absolutely love the sea. Although diet is a key factor, Disney will also provide guests with news reports every night, allowing them to view the activities that are brewing for them the next day (you can also choose to use their Disney Cruise Line app to view activities and Daily menu.) During marine activities, this activity table is always full of karaoke, newly released movies, fitness games, etc. Disney knows that its guests always have a lot of interesting things to do on the ship, because they know that some guests may be boring and boring.
On the third day, we stopped in Tallinn, Estonia. We arrived and walked in the Old Town of Tallinn, which gave us a real understanding of their culture. We also explored the Russian Orthodox Cathedral, the Estonian Maritime Museum (Old Prison) and Fat Margaret Tower (large building next to the ship). Like most people, the weather in Northern Europe is very rough. Knowing this, I organized a variety of different clothes and layers. It was great that Tallinn stayed in the 60°F area for most of our visit. I wear leggings (lululemon), vest (lululemon), long sweater (Madewell) and tennis shoes (New Balance). My father and brothers can only wear shorts and shirts, so it really depends on your ability to withstand the cool weather. I’m a little girl, so the wind is a bit cold for me, explaining that long sweater.
On the 4th day, we stopped in St. Petersburg, Russia. On this day, we decided to find a bus driver and a tour guide (Ala Tour). St. Petersburg has multiple churches (such as the Church on the Spilled Blood) and palaces (Catherine Palace), so we need someone to help us find our way. I suggest you find a tour guide you can trust (such as Alla Tours), because when we visit the Catherine Palace (and some other city monuments), this line goes around the building to enter, but our guide found a way to skip It only takes 15 minutes to reach our route. Like Tallinn, the weather in St. Petersburg is also strange. The cold morning forced me to wear a scarf (Madewell) and a thick coat (Madewell), but later that day the temperature became higher (perhaps 67 degrees Fahrenheit), which made me wear a light rain coat (Spice). , Because St. Petersburg does tend to sprinkle water every once in a while. That night, as everyone went to work at 11:30 in the evening, there was no theater performance. This means that you can choose to stay in Russia until 11:30 in the evening, or come early for dinner without participating in the show.
On the 5th day, we stopped in Helsinki, Finland. This day is relatively short because everyone on board is around 5 pm. We decided to ride a merry-go-round to see the town and take a boat to visit a small island about the history of Finland (Suomenlinna). We don’t realize how big and long Suomenlinna is, so we can’t see all its rich history. If you decide to visit this location in Finland, I suggest you spend several hours here. Tonight includes a semi-formal dinner. This means that we have to dress better than usual for dinner to take pictures. Disney does not require you to dress up for any night on the cruise ship, but it is strongly recommended that you do so on these special nights. I am wearing a mini skirt (Abercrombie & Fitch), a vest (American Eagle) and sandals (Tory Burch).
On the sixth day, we stopped in Stockholm, Sweden. This day is even shorter because all 3:30 in the afternoon. We decided to visit the armory and palace next to it. If you are traveling with any boy or man, I suggest you visit the armory. My brother and father are happy to see all the military armor, weapons and royal carriages. We also bought tickets for the hop-on hop-off bus, but due to heavy traffic and overcrowding (due to all the boats stopping in Stockholm that day), I do not recommend buying tickets for this bus in the town. Tonight Disney held “Anna & Elsa’s “Frozen” Deck Party”, which means that we all boarded the 9th deck before dinner to watch the characters in “Frozen” Dancing and singing on stage. Disney also changed their theatrical performance this evening. Unlike normal Broadway-style shows, they provide us with comedy shows.
The 7th day is our last day, which means another “day at sea”. This day is very similar to the second day, except that this cruise includes cancellation of all memories and Jack Jack’s diaper sprint (a game between babies that can crawl) and other activities. Usually, my family and I like to have lunch in Cavanas (unlimited buffet is always great), but on this day, my father and I decided to try Lumieres lunch. I have Cuban sandwiches and Parma veal with spaghetti (two main dishes must be on this day), and my father has shrimp and Thai noodles. Both meals were great! Disney once again found a way to shock us. At the end of the day, we enjoyed the last show (Disney Dream) and dinner at Animators Palate (one of the three revolving restaurants). “Real Soon” party held in the atrium of the lobby on the 3rd floor The show includes waving goodbye to all the characters on the ship and a pin fair (all guests on the ship get together to exchange their Disney pins.)
Day 8 is our last morning on the boat, which means you go to have breakfast where you had dinner the night before, or dine in Cabanas (buffet on deck 9). For me and my family, we ate more at Animators Palate at once. After eating the last meal on the boat, everyone disembarked and went to the airport to fly home. Disney allows all guests to dine and explore the ship before leaving, which is good because we are not in a hurry to disembark and let new guests start their vacation.
