    Disney Cruise first timers - does DCL provide towels for port, if we are NOT going on a organized port adventure...ie if we are getting off on our own and just going to a beach in say Cozumel will there be towels to grab as we get off?

    Hi Justin!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so excited for you and your FIRST Disney Cruise Line vacation!  I know how excited I was for my family’s first time at sea with Captain Mickey and I can guarantee this will be a vacation you won’t forget!

    One of my favorite things about a Disney Cruise Line vacation is that so much is already included with your reservation – food, entertainment, nonstop activities and so much more!!  And, yes – that includes towels for your time at port or when you are enjoying some time by the onboard pools.  When you disembark the ship at port there will be LOTS of towels that you can grab for your day onshore.  Once you return to the ship at the end of your day there will be bins for you to put the borrowed towels back in.  I highly recommend throwing some plastic trash bags in your beach bag to carry the towels back at the end of the day…that has always made it easier for us at the end of a long day and the littles aren’t having any part of carrying things back!  

    With your Online Check-In and booking window opening very soon (75 days prior to sailing for first-time Guests) make sure you’ve given thought to any onboard activities and Port Adventures you may want to book.  Once your window opens, you will be able to book adult-exclusive dining reservations, spa treatments, reserve complimentary character breakfast tickets and much more!  If something does not appear to be available at first, check back because other Guests plans may change opening an opportunity for another Guest to grab!

    Wishing you a magical and memorable FIRST Disney Cruise Line vacation!

    Happy Sailing!
