Disney Magic Best & Worst Staterooms: Summary
Best Cabins onboard the Disney Magic: staterooms on Decks 7 and 8.
Cabins to be wary of onboard the Disney Magic: stateroom on Decks 2 and 5.

Deck-by-Deck Breakdown of the Best and Worst Cabins onboard the Disney Magic

Deck 1

Cabins on the Disney Magic's Deck 1 have cabins above them, and this means these are typically quieter compared to cabins beneath the disco or sunbathing areas (the noise of moving deck chairs late at night / early in the AM).

  • Port side on Deck 1 of the Disney Magic, Deluxe Ocean View Staterooms (1030- 1078) each have 214 sq. ft. of interior space, and wonderful views of the ocean.
  • There are 17 Deluxe Inside Staterooms (1037- 1053 and 1065- 1079) on the Disney Magic. These are just as roomy as the ocean view staterooms on Deck 1.

Deck 2

***CruiseAdvice.org Warning ***
Many cabins on this deck with potential problems.
Deck 2 is right beneath several major public areas on the Disney Magic, including bars and lounges which could mean noise issues late into the evening.

  • Forward on Deck 2 of the Disney Magic, exterior cabins 2032- 2052 port side, 2532- 2552 starboard, and interior staterooms 2035- 2044 and 2535- 2547 are underneath a bar areas. This could mean some late night noise concerns. Light sleepers may prefer to find a cabin elsewhere on the ship, bring earplugs, or invest in a wave machine (a sound device available at a specialty retailer like Brookstone -- produces pleasant sounds that can wipe out the unpleasant sounds).
  • Two sections of staterooms on Deck 2 of the Disney Magic are underneath restaurants. These are exterior cabins 2070- 2094 and 2138- 2152 port side, 2570- 2594 and 2638- 2552 starboard, and interior cabins 2071- 2088, 2571- 2585, 2139- 2153, and 2639- 2653. There could be noise during dining hours and during the clean-up after each meal. For dinner, the last diners usually exit by 10:30 and there is likely to some noise from the clean-up (vacuum cleaners) as late as 11:30. Given that most people don't get back to their cabins to after 11 PM, this shouldn't be a substantial issue. Breakfast typically starts in the main dining room at 8:30AM, so you might hear some noise above starting then. However, few people go to the main dining room for breakfast, so, this should not be a major issue.
  • Port side on Deck 2 of the Disney Magic, exterior cabins 2086- 2114 and interior cabins 2101- 2111 are under a bar, so there could be noise issues into the wee hours. Again, light sleepers may want to find a cabin on another deck, bring earplugs, or invest in a wave machine.
  • Some of the worst cabins are on Deck 2 of the Disney Magic. While we are not suggesting that this deck be entirely avoided, you will be able to find quieter accommodations on other decks of this ship. We do recommend finding an inside stateroom elsewhere. Deck 1 has some nice interior cabins, as do other higher decks on the Disney Magic.

Deck 5

***CruiseAdvice.org Warning ***
Many cabins on this deck with potential problems.
Along this entire deck, you should be aware that the main drag of the Disney Magic is right beneath your cabin. Most of these public venues, such as the theater and aft restaurant, are not open extremely late at night, but there could be some noise issues nonetheless.

  • On Deck 5 of the Disney Magic, there are very few inside cabins probably for good reason.We do suggest locating an inside cabin on Deck 1, or on other, higher decks to avoid any noise concerns. ]
  • Forward on Deck 5 of the Disney Magic, exterior cabins 5000- 5024 port side, 5500- 5524 starboard, and interior cabins 5001- 5013 and 5501- 5513 are over the theater. None of these cabins are over the stage area, but there could be noise during a performance, and before and after when staff are either preparing for or cleaning up after a show. Because these staterooms are over, rather than under the theater, we do think that noise will be a major concern.
  • Aft on Deck 5 of the Disney Magic, exterior cabins 5126- 5150 port side, 5626- 5650 starboard, and interior cabins 5127- 5139 and 5627- 5639 are over a main dining room. Again, there could be noise during dining hours and during the clean-up after each meal. For dinner, the last diners usually exit by 10:30 and there is likely to some noise from the clean-up (vacuum cleaners) as late as 11:30. Given that most people don't get back to their cabins to after 11 PM, this shouldn't be a substantial issue. Breakfast typically starts in the main dining room at 8:30AM, so you might hear some noise above starting then. However, few people go to the main dining room for breakfast, so, this should not be a major issue.
  • While we are not suggesting this deck be avoided altogether, some of the worst cabins on the Disney Magic are on Deck 5.

Deck 6

Deck 6 of the Disney Magic features balcony staterooms, and several inside cabins as well. Because the cabin decks above and below buffer noises generated from public areas, accommodations on Deck 6 tend to be quieter.

  • Forward on Deck 6 of the Disney Magic, Ocean View Staterooms 6000 and 6500 are quite spacious and wheelchair accessible.
  • There are verandah staterooms port side (6028- 6152) and starboard (6528- 6652) on Deck 6 of the Disney Magic.
  • The Disney cruise ships are well known for having some of the most spacious staterooms to be found. All of the cabins with verandahs on Deck 6 of the Magic are either Deluxe Staterooms with Verandahs or Deluxe Staterooms with the Navigators' Verandahs. Each of these is 268 sq. ft. including verandah space, which is 54 sq. ft. larger than Ocean View Staterooms.
  • Aft, inside cabins 6147 and 6647 are quite spacious and are wheelchair accessible.
  • Also aft on Deck 6 of the Magic, Deluxe Staterooms with Verandahs 6154 and 6654 are much more spacious than standard, wheelchair accessible, and command a wonderful view of the ocean.

Deck 7

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Highly rated by our cruise experts!
Deck 7 of the Disney Magic is very similar in design to Deck 6, but does offer standard and deluxe inside cabins. Because there are cabin decks above and beneath Deck 7, accommodations here tend to be quieter. Some of the best cabins on the Disney Magic are on Deck 7!

  • Forward on Deck 7 of the Disney Magic, there are nine Deluxe Inside Staterooms (7001- 7007 and 7501- 7509). Each has 184 sq. ft. of interior space, which is 30 sq. ft. more than standard. This is a great deck for inside staterooms!
  • Staterooms with verandahs begin after the forward elevators (7016- 7138 port side and 7516- 7638 starboard) on Deck 7 of the Disney Magic.
  • Aft, inside cabins 7131 and 7631 are much larger than average and wheelchair accessible.
    Deluxe Staterooms with Verandahs 7136 and 7636 are oddly shaped, have more interior space, and feature the largest verandahs of any cabins on Deck 7 of the Disney Magic. Both are wheelchair accessible. Aft ocean views from these verandahs are not only scenic but less breezy as well.
  • Also aft, 7138 and 7638 are oddly shaped, a bit roomier, and command that beautiful ocean view on Deck 7 of the Disney Magic.

Deck 8

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Highly rated by our cruise experts!
Deck is arguably the high-rent district of the ship. The best cabins on the Disney Magic are on Deck 8. This is where all the suites and penthouse category cabins are located. Given that this is where the high-dollar cabins are, this is also where the Disney Magic's best cabin stewards are usually assigned. Reserving a verandah stateroom on this deck may also mean the additional benefit of great service!

  • There are 80 Deluxe Family Staterooms on Deck 8 of the Disney Magic interspersed with larger luxury suites port side and starboard. Each of these has 304 sq. ft. including the balcony. The family cabins are in short-supply and are very popular given their attractive sleeping arrangements. They sell out very quickly, so it is best to book early to get a family cabin.
  • Although this is unquestionably the top of the line for suites and staterooms on the Disney Magic, luxury minded cruisers need to be aware of certain sections of Deck 8 where there might be some concern with noise late at night and early in the morning. Midship cabins (8034- 8078 port side and 8534- 8580) are under a very busy area of Deck 9, where the family pools, kiddie water slide, band area, and casual eateries are located. This should not be too much of a concern, but early in the morning and late at night you might here the scraping of deck chairs as staff clean this area. Aft on Deck 8, cabins 8080- 8102 port side and 8582- 8602 might have some off hours noise concerns as staff prepare for, and clean up after, guests who frequent the casual dining area located just above.
  • There are 18 wonderfully spacious 1 Bedroom Suites with Verandahs on Deck 8 of the Disney Magic. Each boasts 614 sq. ft. of living space including the balcony. Of these, 8100, 8102, 8600, and 8602 are absolutely captivating! These four are all a bit more spacious than average and have that highly sought after (less breezy) aft ocean view.
  • Forward on Deck 8 of the Disney Magic, there are two 2 Bedroom Suites with Verandahs (8016 and 8516). Each has 614 sq. footage.
  • Midship on Deck 8 of the Magic, Royal Suites 8030 and 8530 are the most spacious and luxurious of all accommodations on the Disney Magic. Each has 1, 029 sq. ft. including balcony space.
  • If you are interested in family accommodations, 8024- 8028 and 8524- 8528 are Deluxe Family Staterooms with Verandahs nearby the Royal Suites (where service is bound to be excellent).
