A Disney Cruise Line's ship which spent almost 3 months moored up in Kent headed back to the UK. Fans who missed out on seeing the prominent liner in Dover now have a second chance to do so. Disney Magic was due back in the port at 6 pm, Thursday evening following a 2-day trip to Brest, north-west France.

The vessel did crew transfers with the sistership Disney Fantasy, which had sailed to Europe for refurbishment.

Disney Magic, which has a Goofy hanging from the stern and sports Mickey silhouettes on her funnels, then made her way along the Channel back to Dover UK.

As of 3 pm on Thursday, Disney Magic entered waters off the Kent coast, meaning she could be then spotted from Hythe and Folkestone.

The ship does not have any planned voyages until October, suggesting her second stay in Dover UK could, again, be lengthy.

On Thursday, August 6, Disney Cruise Line announced it has cancelled all October and select November sailings to align with the CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association) suspension of passenger operations.
