Location: Deck 3, Forward,, Disney Magic
This past weekend friends of From Screen to Theme
and It's All About the Mouse Travel joined together for our very
first annual cruise (You can join us next year aboard the Disney
Dream for next year's cruise). While aboard, I took a tour to learn
about the history and fun facts that are scattered across the ship,
but one that totally took me by surprise was the carpets.
Aboard most cruise lines, there are a total of 10-20
different carpet patterns found throughout the ships. While that
seems impressive, take into account that aboard a Disney cruise
ship, there are typically 120 or more different carpet designs on a
single ship, and much like the parks, the ground helps part of the
story be told while also hiding little elements inside.
While on the Forward portion of the ship, on Deck 3,
older guests can experience three different after hour experiences
at three different bars: O'Gills, Keys, and Fathoms. The three can
all be found in an area known as After Hours:
While the carpet for After Hours gives off a
different feeling than the rest of the ships carpeting, it was
decided that this carpet should also pay tribute to a Disney
character in a subtle way. Do you see the reference?
That's right, the drink in the middle of After
Hours, when looked at upside down, pays tribute to the Sorcerer's
Hat from Fantasia! So as always, while walking around the parks and
ships, make sure you pay attention to where you are walking for some
incredible details you have have overlooked.
