    Hello! We are cruising on the Disney Dream with a 1 year old and 5 year old. Do the freezer packs and breastmilk need to be totally frozen to bring them on board? I'm not sure I'll have a way to keep everything 100% frozen with all our travel.

    Welcome, Ashley!

    I am so excited to hEAR you have a Disney Cruise Line vacation coming up!  It will be here before you know it!

    Disney Cruise Line makes it SO convenient for Guests to travel with little ones by providing pack and plays and diaper pails in the staterooms as well as having the incredible onboard nursery for the littlest of Guests!  Additionally, each stateroom has an in-room beverage cooler that you will be able to use to store breastmilk, if needed.  It is not required that breastmilk that you bring onboard with you be frozen although I do recommend bringing a soft sided cooler with you since your stateroom may not be ready immediately and that way you can continue to keep it stored until you can get it into your stateroom’s cooler.  Please note that coolers must be no larger than 12” x 12” x 12” in size so take that into consideration when packing.  Since breastmilk falls into the category as liquid medication, you can carry it on and off the ship when you visit ports if needed.

    When your Online Check-In and activity booking window opens (75 days ahead of sailing for first time Guests), be sure to register your five-year old for the Oceaneer Club and Lab and reserve some time for your littlest one in the “it’s a small world” nursery!  They will both enjoy their time in the youth clubs and you will enjoy some time sans kiddos!  Take advantage of the opportunity for an adult-exclusive dinner or an afternoon by the pool.

    Have the most magical of vacations making Very Merrytime memories!

    Happy Sailing!
