    Hi! I always go to Disney World every year (and love every minute of it!) but this will be the first time I will embark on a Disney Cruise! I would like to know what DCL means by 'day bag'; is a carry-on airline size rolling luggage would do?

    Ahoy Patrick!

    You sound like my kind of guy!  Disney World every year?!?  Awesome!  I moved to Florida because I wanted to have my Florida Resident Park passes (I'm just a little Disney obsessed)!  I am super excited to hear that you are about to embark on your first Disney are going to be amazed and'll never want to sail another cruise line ever again...that's exactly what happened to me.

    Per Disney Cruise Line policy, Guests are allowed one carry on and one purse or briefcase per person, and two checked bags per person.  The size of the carry on luggage would be similar to what you are allowed to bring on a plane (mine is rolling luggage).   If you have several pieces of luggage, you may want to put swimsuits, and a change of clothes in your carry on and check the rest of the luggage.  Luggage delivery is usually very timely, but sometimes I've seen them delivering until 6 or 7pm, which means if you have Main Dining you will be in the same clothes you boarded with.  That fine, because attire the first evening is cruise casual.

    I hope this helps.  Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you.  I'm very happy to help my fellow Disney freaks, um...I mean fans!!!  Bon voyage Patrick!
