The Pasta Purses are one of my favorite foods on the ship! And I'm glad you had the chance to do Palo Brunch--that is easily my favorite dining experience on these ships! I typically am heavy handed on the cheeses and the seafood, but the chicken parm is one of my favorites I've ever had!

I have to say we've done a lot of different dining experiences on different cruise ship and I have to say Palo Brunch is easily in my "top 3 favorites" (which pretty much means it's tied for my favorite) of all restaurants I've eaten at on Cruise ships!

I love this, you'd think more places would do something like this, and I don't just mean cruises. It's amazing how many places don't care about everyone getting the same and it just coming down to luck on your placement. On that subject does the menu stay the same until everyone's been to the same restaurant (You've made me really want to try those pasta parcels). I'm also curious how easy is it to get seats and see all the shows? Sorry for the questions but this TR is really making me consider putting a little away for the next 10 years to try a Disney Cruise.

Your cruise trip reports are so much fun to read because the photos are so great (as always) and you do a great job of making it seem like I can reach through the screen and order some of that amazing food! It's really cool to see all of the details they put into every room. If I ever go on a cruise it'd probably be some sort of Disney cruise. The level of service and cleanliness is just out of this world compared to other cruise trip reports I've seen.

Day THREE of our Disney Magic Cruise! (Read part two HERE in case you missed it!)

Today was packed with random Disney adventures! It was our first "port day" which was Cozumel, Mexico along with being "Pirate Night!" (YAY!) On top of all that fun we also got to dine in the new "Rapunzel's Royal Table" which was basically a dinner & a show featuring all the characters and songs from Tangled. We also spent a lot of time on the ship hanging out because, well, since we've been to Cozumel many times, for seasoned cruisers like us, that's a perfect time to take advantage of a mostly empty ship while everyone else is on shore!

Great times were had! But let's SHOW you some of the fun...

IMG_9882.JPG
Before you ask, YES our day started out with Mickey Mouse Waffles... DUH!

Image
It was a "Disney Princess" kind of morning for us...

Image
These princess meet & greets happen on most mornings throughout the cruise...

Image
And while there is no additional charge to do this, you do have to book tickets in advance.

IMG_9717.JPG
Kristen is getting some posture tips from Rapunzel! :Pr

Image
Kristen had a great time meeting all of the princesses!

IMG_9726.JPG
Hello Rapunzel!

IMG_9776.JPG
We love Tiana! Princess & the Frog started the new "rebirth" of Disney animation and we thank you for that!

IMG_9857.JPG
We also got to do the Frozen meet & greet this morning!

IMG_9837.JPG
Kristen got to hang out with Anna & Elsa! (I was jealous!) :lmao:

IMG_6601.JPG
I may have snuck in a picture with the Frozen princesses! (This isn't creepy right? Please just tell me this isn't creepy!)

Image
Today the Disney Magic is porting in Cozumel, Mexico! We have been to Cozumel quite a few times so we normally just do a lap of the port and take advantage of the empty ship!

DSC05791.JPG
The ship looks awesome ported in Cozumel!

DSC05789.JPG
Here's another look at it...

Image
Hello, Goofy! How's it going?

IMG_9934.JPG
We did a "courtesy lap" around the port. We've been here many times so there wasn't really anything we needed.

IMG_9935.JPG
Obviously those are officially licensed from Disney! :Pr

IMG_9971.JPG
Actually, this was the REAL REASON we got off the ship!

Image
We found this “New York Pizza” place in Cozumel! :lol:

Image
It has 1 Star on Yelp and the pizza looked like it was sitting out for a while so we didn’t take our chances! We'll stick with the amazing food on the ship!

Image
We did pick up a pizza box for Scott's Pizza Tour, though!

IMG_0003.JPG
Ports like Cozumel, if you’ve been before like we have, makes for a GREAT day to hang out on the ship!

Image
There were light crowds in the pools...

IMG_0007.JPG
Plenty of room on deck to relax!

Image
Image
Short lines for the water slides and you can ride over and over again (which we did!)

Image
And you can have some GREAT interactions with the characters since there are not many people around!

IMG_9997.JPG

IMG_9998.JPG
We had lunch at the Chicken Shawarma place on the pool deck and it is FANTASTIC!

IMG_9995.JPG
Did we mention you can get alcoholic Dole Whip pretty much any time you want at the pool deck? Yeah!

IMG_0013.JPG
Tonight is "Pirate Night" so we have some fun things to wear to get us in the spirit!

Image
Tonight's dinner is at the brand new Rapunzel's Royal Table!

Image
The theming and atmosphere in here is fantastic!

Image
We are greeted by the Tangled "Ruffians!" lol

Image
This is a brand new addition to the Disney Magic!

Image
The “show” has started in Rapunzel’s Royal Table and it’s completely adorable! :lover: :lover: :lover:

DSC05826.JPG
It really is a "dinner and a show!"

DSC05835.JPG
Don't they look adorable together?

Image
Rapunzel has come around to our table to say hello!

Image
Here is the menu for Rapunzel’s Royal Table!

Image
Image
Image
See anything you’d like?

I'll just leave some of these food pics right here...

The dessert in Rapunzel's frying pan stole the dinner part of the show, though!

IMG_0038.JPG
I love how the kids menu transforms into a lantern!

IMG_0130.JPG
And of course Flynn Rider came around to hang out with all the girls! :lover:

Image
Pirates night deck party is about to begin!

DSC05873.JPG
It's a deck party featuring all things "pirates!"

DSC05891.JPG
But first...there is a "Flash Mob!" (Yes, this is still a thing!)

DSC05890.JPG
And look who volunteered to be in the flash mob! (Yes, that is Kristen!)

DSC05905.JPG
Any deck party with lots of rodents is a huge win for us!

DSC05953.JPG
Hello rodents!

DSC05993.JPG
Uh, oh... Captain Hook is here to stir up some drama. He's like a troll who just came into the TPR forum and is up to no good.

Image
Image
Yes, that is “Pirate Mickey” who ziplines from the top of the ships funnel to start the fireworks on Pirate night! It’s amazing!

Image
There is just something completely magical about fireworks at sea!

Image
It is my favorite entertainment offering of any cruise ship on any cruise lines! Absolutely LOVE it!!!

IMG_6800.JPG
This is just seriously awesome how it lights up the entire sky and the water around you!

DSC06031.JPG
Of course Mickey is here to save the day! :mickey:

IMG_0514.JPG
Jack Sparrow is out meeting & greeting everyone.

IMG_0475.JPG
The shop has had pirated themed items for sale all day today.

IMG_0483.JPG
I love that we got a pirate themed "towel animal" in our stateroom!

IMG_0510.JPG
Pirate Stitch even came to hang out with the kids in the Tween Club tonight!

IMG_0546.JPG
Hiya Pirate Minnie!

IMG_0569.JPG
Oh those silly rodents! :lol:

IMG_0561.JPG
We each ended pirate night with our rodents! Elissa & Kristen with Chip n’ Dale...

Image
and me with Mickey!

IMG_0590.JPG
Looking good, Mickey! Thanks for another wonderful day on the ship!!!

Oh yes, be sure to POST YOUR COMMENTS!!!
(we took the time to write the report, the least you could do is say something nice about it!) :p

I sincerely hope it isn't creepy to have your pictures taken with the Frozen princess's as I did exactly the same thing last year!

Looking forward to going on the Magic next year again. We haven't been on it since they upgraded to the Tangled theme so that looks like a lot of fun.
