    Can you bring over the counter meds such as ibuprofen, Benadryl, etc in a travel organizer or does it have to be in their original containers?

    Ahoy, Cassie, and welcome to planDisney!

    I see you are getting ready to embark on a Disney Cruise Line vacation in the near future! This is the perfect time to check items off of your packing list so that you will be ready to enjoy your magical getaway. 

    I always stow my over-the-counter medications in their original containers. I prefer to travel with them in a zippered top container so they are all accessible in one location. The What to Pack for a Cruise list states that medications should be packed in original containers, so leaving them as they come packaged will be best. No matter what, I recommend putting them in your carry-on bag instead of your checked luggage in case you need them. You never know; there could be a delay with your checked bag arriving at your stateroom.

    Please return and let us know if you have more ship-worthy questions; we will gladly help.

    Have a magical cruise!
