    First time cruisers, leaving on the Magic from New York in Nov. Three questions: 1. Is 2% milk available? LO only drinks milk 2. How many bags can we check? How many bags can we carry on? 3. Is a stroller considered a carry-on item?

    Hi Lisa!

    Your MAGICal Disney Cruise will be here SO SOON and I know how excited you must be; before you know it, you will be off on an unforgettable vacation!

    During your time onboard, you will be able to get milk for your little one without a problem. 2% milk should be available during meal times and if you can also request it from Room Service which is included with your reservation.  I recommend grabbing a few milk cartons at breakfast from Cabanas and put them in your stateroom's beverage cooler for use throughout the day.

    If you haven’t yet received your “Mickey Mail” with your cruise booklet and luggage tags, it will be on its way to your mailbox soon.  Each Guest will receive 2 luggage tags, but you can request more from the porters if you need them at the port.  There is no limit as to how many bags or items you choose to check.  You can also carry on as many as you would like, but just be mindful as to what you can/can’t manage onboard!  Your stateroom won’t be accessible until after 1:30PM, so if you plan on being onboard prior to then, you may want to limit your carry-ons, freeing up your hands!  I recommend using your stroller when you board the ship – either with your little one in it or use it to hold items that you carry on!  Also, if you are considering what kind of stroller to bring, an umbrella stroller will be so much easier than a larger stroller.  The entryways to the staterooms are fairly narrow and collapsing a stroller each time you enter becomes cumbersome!  Plus, you can easily stow it under your bed when not in use!

    Thanks for sailing by and please come back with any more questions as your sailing gets closer!

    Happy Sailing!
