Land and Sea

My husband and I are coming up on our five-year anniversary and decided to celebrate by taking a second honeymoon at the end of the month. We’ll be taking a cruise aboard the Disney Fantasy for 7 nights in a Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Navigator’s Verandah. Swanky, right?

What was our first honeymoon, you ask? Well, we took our very first Disney Cruise aboard the Disney Fantasy for 7 nights in a Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Navigator’s Verandah.

Why mess with a good thing? Disney Cruise Line (DCL) does honeymoons right.

But since we were recently on the subject of MagicBands, let’s keep going with that. Right now, DCL provides passengers with a proximity card that does triple duty as your room key, ID card to get you on/off the ship, and credit card for all of the little extras you want to buy while on board.

And it makes a great souvenir and scrapbooking piece when you debark.

So it’s a really important card to keep on you at all times. Now, let’s think about cruise attire for a second, shall we? Mostly it consists of bathing suits and sun dresses – things that don’t usually come with pockets to house your key card. Most women I meet on the ship have adapted by purchasing a lanyard or using the free lanyard that Disney gives you when you join the ranks of the “Castaway Club” once you embark on your second cruise.

Why not upgrade DCL to *also* be on the MagicBand system? Annual passholders and other Disney patrons who already have MagicBands can simply link their cruise itinerary to their existing band. Disney would be able to print out fewer proximity cards and have more robust data on what their customers are doing.

Current MagicBand holders – I’d be interested in your thoughts. Would you like to also use your MagicBand on Disney Cruise Line?

  1. This would be awesome! And for those who book both a cruise and park time, they are set to go with one band all linked to the same credit card (if they add that).
