Disney Executives Discuss “Guy Friendly” Features of Re-Imagined Disney Magic

Readers may remember I checked out Disney Cruise Line’s Re-Imagined Disney Magic with my 12 year old daughter Evie.  While on board, it struck me how the new additions of super heroes and thrill slides made the ship even more appealing for Dads.  In fact, one could say the Disney Magic was Re-Imagined for Dad… oh wait, that’s right, I did say that already.  Well I wasn’t the only one who noticed the testosterone rich additions to the ship.  In the VIDEO interviews below I chat with Walt Disney Imagineering’s Joe Lanzisero and Disney Cruise Line’s Jim Urry on their thoughts about the particularly guy friendly features of the Re-Imagined Disney Magic.

Of course we all know that the Disney Cruise Line ships are specially designed with activities for the entire family, but it’s nice to know that Dad wasn’t forgotten on the Re-Imagined Disney Magic.
