In 2013 Disney Magic went through a major dry dock. Heres a summary of some of the changes: The popular childrens facilities was updated. Oceaneer Club, for ages 3-12, added Andys Room, a replica of the boys bedroom in the movie Toy Story. It features a large functional Mr. Potato Head and a slide built into a replica of Slinky Dog. New is the Marvels Avengers Academy, which includes the uniforms worn by Capt. America and Iron Man. The Oceaneer Lab next door shed its dated outer-space décor in favor of a décor more inspired by pirates. The nursery, for children age 3 months to 3 years old, received a new Its A Small World theme and brighter colors.

Animators Palate, the restaurant received the Animation Magic technology on Disney Fantasy, where cartoons hand-drawn by diners magically dance on the walls.

Parrot Cay, the Caribbean-themed buffet restaurant, received a sleek, sophisticated new look at Cariocas, a classic eatery with a South American vibe inspired by Jose Carioca, a character from the 1944 Disney movie The Three Caballeros.

Topsider Buffet changed to Cabanas, as the casual eateries are known on Dream and Fantasy. The old-school buffet line was replaced with serving stations, and new Aussie-inspired décor features Finding Nemo characters.

The adult-only area, now called Beat Street, was renamed After Hours with an evening ambience more on par with the nightlife in cities like Miami Beach or Las Vegas. Rockin Bar D turned into a cool nightclub called Fathoms. Sessions, the piano bar, became Keys and received a more sophisticated black-and-white color scheme. Diversions, the sports bar, changed into OGills, the popular Irish pub introduced on Disney Fantasy.

The pool area on Deck 9 became one large family play area. The Mickey-shaped pool disappeared and was replaced by water sprays and a bucket dump, as well as a water play area for kids in diapers. The new AquaDunk thrill ride starts with a countdown until the floor drops from under the rider, who then shoots down a translucent tube that winds over the side of the ship.

In September 2015 Disney added 6 inside staterooms on deck 2 in place of the Edge teen center which was moved to deck 9 midship. It appears that 6 Oceanview and 2 inside cabins on the aft of deck 2 were taken out service. Disney added a new Concierge Lounge to deck 10 midship and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique was added to deck 10 forward funnel.

During drydock Mar 2018 added Rapunzels Royal Table (replaced Cariocas), added tropical theme to Cove Café and Signals Bar, updated Vibe and redesigned Rainforest Room, added Club Disney Junior to the Oceaneer Club.
