Now that you’ve booked your Disney Cruise, you’re probably wondering what you should pack. After doing my research for my own cruise and probably overpacking, I learned a few things that you totally need and things you can leave at home.
Check out my Ultimate Disney Cruise Packing List Below
1. Ziplock Bags – These are great for packing your kids outfits in for each day of the cruise. Also, you can pack any wet swimsuits that didn’t dry overnight on the last day.
2. Sticky Notes – Label your outfits so you know who’s outfit is who’s.
3. Refillable Cups -I packed sippy cups for the kids and Yeti Cups for the adults. There is only one deck to get free drinks and it can be far from your stateroom. It saved us time and whining.
4. Bottled Water – You can bring bottled water on the boat if you don’t want to drink the water from the tap. Note: They won’t let you check it as a checked bag. You will have to wheel it on and keep it with you until your stateroom is ready. They don’t want to be responsible if it leaks.
5. Wine – Disney Cruise Line Guests 21 years and older may bring a maximum of 2 bottles of unopened wine or champagne (no larger than 750 ml) or 6 beers (no larger than 12 ounces) on board at the beginning of the voyage and at each port of call. These beverages must be packed in carry-on (not checked) bags or luggage. Read #4 above.
6. Snacks – There is plenty of food on board. Everywhere you go you can find something. But for your days of the boat or travel, you may want to pack some light snacks to munch on.
7. Sunscreen – You can never pack enough sunscreen. Babyganics Sunscreen sent me their mineral-based sunscreen to take on my trip. I love this product because it’s tear free and there are no parabens, phthalates, PABA, fragrances, and nano-particles. This sunscreen really protected my kids’ skin. They are fair-skinned and blue eyes.
8. Princess Costumes – Pack your little one’s favorite princess costumes. You may have a chance to meet Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Belle from Beauty and the Beast for a character experience. Make sure you book it before you board the cruise.
9. Pirate Night – The cruise usually provides you with a pirate handkerchief, but it’s still fun to pack a few pirate essentials.
11. Chargers – Pack chargers for your smartphones, Go Pro and DSL Camera. Bring a backup charger so you don’t have to go back to the room.
12. Umbrella Stroller ( for 2 and under) – I didn’t notice many strollers on the cruise. Remember, you have to carry whatever bags or non-checked luggage when you first board the ship until your stateroom is ready. I recommend for 2 and under the Summer Infant 3Dlite Convenience Stroller. Let your kids walk around and get tired.
13. Clorox Wipes – Our stateroom was spotless. But I packed them to wipe a few things down just in case.
14. Seasickness Stuff – Dramamine for kids, Dramamine for adults, Ginger Lozenges, Sea Bands and of course the Sea Sick Patch. If you even think you might get seasick, get the patch from your doctor.
15. Medicine Bag – Mucinex for Kids was a lifesaver since we caught a sniffle the day before we got on the ship. Pack those kid necessities you might need.
16. Humidifier – Cool Mist Personal Mini Humidifier can be helpful, USB or Battery Operated Portable Travel Humidifying Device for use with Water Bottles
17. Clothing – To cut down on the luggage, I packed each outfit for each day. Make sure you pack enough swimsuits so that one is drying. You’ll want special outfits for a family photo after dinner one evening. Maybe a sweatshirt or sweater because it can get a little chilly. I went shopping at JoBella Girls Boutique in Boca Raton before leaving to get outfits and swimsuits for the girls.
18. Cruiseline Navigator App – Download the latest version of the complimentary Disney Cruise Line Navigator app on your smartphone before you leave home to access vacation information and send messages to members of your travel party once on board the ship.
