    Can you bring handheld, battery operated mini fans to keep cool when outside. We are on the July 13th West. Caribbean sailing so I expect it to be very hot and humid

    Hi there, Mark! 

    Thank you for sending your question to planDisney. My planDisney pals Lizzie and Nilson know I am a huge fan of portable fans when traveling to Disney destinations in the summer (as well as in the spring and fall)! Having a cool fan when it is hot outside makes the weather much more manageable. I usually bring a neck fan or handheld fan (or sometimes both!). 

    According to the current list of Prohibited and Restricted Items, portable fans are a "maybe". They will need to be inspected by the Chief Electrician, and if approved, will be returned to you on the ship. I have brought handheld fans in the past, and I was able to use them during my trip. I recommend making sure they are in pristine condition to help avoid potential issues. Personally, I prefer neck fans because I spend half of my time eating on a Disney Cruise. I need free hands to grab another ice cream!

    Make sure to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app before your cruise. It is very helpful during our family cruises! I like using the Onboard Chat feature to communicate with my family members. Information about activities, entertainment, and even dining menus can be found on the app. 

    Mark, have a wonderful trip! If you have other questions, please send them our way!

    Happy sailing!
