    We will be on our first Disney cruise soon! Immediately after the cruise, we will be at a beach for a week so we need to pack for both. Are we allowed to bring a pop up tent on the cruise ship (will not be used for the duration of the cruise).

    Welcome to planDisney Yen!

    This is certainly a new question for me! Please read through the list of prohibited items. While a pop-up tent is not specifically mentioned, I am going to guess that you will not be able to get it through security. Due to the size and nature of the item, in my experience, this will be a prohibited item. Any items deemed unsafe/unauthorized to be taken onto your Disney ship will be tagged and kept at the port. You may claim your item when you return back to the port after your cruise. If at all possible, I would have the tent or large items sent ahead to your next destination to avoid any problems or delays.

    While the tent will not be allowed (or needed!) during your cruise, other items will be needed. Make sure to pack cruise casual clothing, swimsuits, sunglasses, sunscreen, a tote bag or backpack to carry your personal items on port adventures, and a sweater or sweatshirt for cooler evenings.

    Since you will be extending your vacation after your cruise, you may need to do some laundry. You will find each ship has laundry rooms if you want to toss in a few loads. I like to do a load or two and not have to pack quite as much, especially if my whole family is traveling. 

    With your cruise just around the corner, please read Know Before You Go and complete all pre-cruise documents. This will make the boarding process smooth sailing and get you onboard your beautiful Disney Cruise ship! 

    Enjoy your first Disney Cruise and we will SEA you onboard real soon!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
