The Disney Magic has 875 staterooms available for guests to book. Staterooms range in price, depending on cruise length, room size and vacation dates. The four main stateroom categories from least to most expensive are: Inside, Oceanview, Verandah and Concierge.

Each of these categories offer Deluxe or Deluxe Family options which provide additional square footage and may also accommodate more guests.

Inside staterooms offer standard and deluxe, which include a porthole mirror with no exterior view. The exception is a handful of deluxe rooms that offer exterior, yet obstructed views. Deluxe rooms are typically bigger than standard size rooms.

There is only one type of Oceanview stateroom, which is Deluxe. It is the same square footage as a Deluxe Inside Room, but the difference is that offers a large porthole or two small portholes, depending on location on the ship.
