Be Our Guest – Disney are back with Magic on the Mersey

Disney Magic is making a welcome return to Liverpool in September at Princes Dock. She has 11 decks, holds 1754 passengers, 915 crew and is almost 1000ft in length.

In true Liverpool style we’re showing Disney Magic a real Scouse welcome back when she makes her fourth visit to our wonderful World Heritage Waterfront on Friday 7 September, with a free family friendly celebration at Princes Dock which will be transformed into a magical garden wonderland for this special occasion.

Cruise Liverpool will be hosting a Magical Garden Party complete with bandstand playing host to many acts throughout the afternoon, look out for dance flash mobs by the Adam Brown Dance company, and an array of colourful and magical street theatre.

Don’t forget to dress to impress in your favourite Disney outfit, you never know there may even be a prize or two for the best dressed.

A whole new world of food and treats will await you at the Magical Garden Party. Snacks and treats will be available throughout the day and will include pizza, crepes, candy floss, ice cream, YogBar, and Fish & Chips.

This special event will take place on Princes Parade from 4.00pm until Disney Magic sets sail at 7.45pm. She is calling here as the last port of call before heading back to Dover.

The annual arrival of the Disney Magic cruise ship has quickly become a star attraction for Princes Dock, which is owned and operated by Peel Land and Property as part of the Liverpool Waters project. In addition to the enchanted events, Liverpool Waters will also be hosting Dragon Boat Racing throughout the same day at Princes Dock.

Liza Marco, asset manager at Liverpool Waters, said: “The Disney Magic cruise ship is always a welcome attraction to Princes Dock. We can’t wait to welcome Disney fans and local people to Liverpool’s waterfront to enjoy the wide array of events that are planned for the day, including live music, dance flash mobs and an amazing sail away show.

Director of The Adam Brown Dance Company, Adam Brown said: “The students at ABDC Are so excited and honoured to be working in partnership with Cruise Liverpool supporting them on such a special occasion…”

Councillor Wendy Simon, Deputy Mayor of Liverpool and Cabinet member for Culture and Events, said: “We’re delighted to have Disney bringing their ship Magic back to the Mersey. It’s always so lovely to see everybody dressed up and having an amazing time. We love welcoming all of the cruise ships to Liverpool but Disney Magic really does bring its own sparkle.”
