Reports from other passengers who are currently on the Disney Magic are stating that everything is fine after the brief power outage.  Dinner and shows all ran as normal and basic hotel functions (toilets) are working as they should.

Cruise Fever has reached out to Disney Cruise Line and received the following response:

” The Disney Magic very briefly lost power last night, and it was restored within minutes.   The ship is designed with redundancies including emergency lighting, which came on immediately.  We do not know what caused the brief power loss and are looking into it.”
