BREAKING NEWS: Disney Cruise Line Has Suspended ALL Disney Magic Departures Through October 9th
We have some sad news regarding Disney Cruise Line sailings particularly those aboard the Disney Magic. Disney has announced that they will be suspending Disney Magic Sailings departing through October 9, 2021.
In a statement published by the company they said, “Our team at Disney Cruise Line remains focused on the health and well-being of our Guests and team members. We are carefully reviewing the most recently released guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and working toward resuming operations.”
This follows decisions by Disney earlier this Spring to suspend the majority of sailings across all four ships in the fleet through the end of June 2021 with more expected to follow.
Sailings impacted by today’s announcement above include Disney Magic sailings on the following dates:
- September 29 – October 4
- October 4 – October 9
- October 9 – October 14
Guests that have paid their reservation in full are being given the choice of a 125% future cruise credit to be used for a future sailing BEFORE September 30, 2022 or a full refund. For those taking the credit option, this will be automatically added to your account and can be applied as payment when a new reservation is booked online.
Guests who HAVE NOT paid their reservations in-full, will automatically receive refund for the amount that has been paid so far.

Guests impacted by this announcement and their travel agents (when applicable) will receive an email from Disney outlining the details and next steps.
Here’s an example of the correspondence:
