    Hi we are going on our First Disney Cruise in April on the Disney Dream and I was just wandering what do I need to pack and do I need to pack beach towels for when you are at Castaway Cay?

    Ahoy Dawn –

    We are so excited for you and happy to see you back with us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! The Dream is a magnificent ship that is teeming with fun activities, character experiences, fine dining, amazing clubs and exceptional cast members that pay special attention to all of the details of your trip. With all of the fun in store for you, it is understandably a big task to decide what to pack. For most days, cruise casual wear is standard (shorts, skirts, tops, khakis) but Pirate Night gives cruisers the opportunity to dress like a pirate so please bring pirate gear! Cruises 4 days or longer have an optional dress up night in case your crew would like to bring their fancy wear or if the adult pirates want to visit Palo or Remy. And of course, every Disney cruiser should have swimwear for the water areas onboard and Castaway Cay. Beach towels are provided at Castaway Cay, Dawn, so leave those towels out of your treasure chest to save space for pirate booty souvenirs! My pirate prince remembers to pack the other items such as phone chargers, sunscreen, medication, cameras, electronics and shoes (for the beach and dining). Please review the Packing List recommendations online to make sure you do not leave anything out.  Dawn, you are going to have a marvelous time! Thanks for stopping by and please come to visit here again soon.
