    Hey! I am considering packing diapers and wipes into a diaper box and taping it back. Can I then put a luggage tag on it and check it with our other luggage at the port?? Or does it have to be in an actual suitcase?

    Ahoy Nikole,

    Thank you so much for visiting planDisney with your question! I am happy to help you think about packing for your upcoming cruise.

    I am so glad that you are planning ahead to bring diapers and wipes with you on your upcoming Disney Cruise Line sailing. Having the brand that you know you like, as well as plenty of them, will certainly help your cruise to go more smoothly!

    I called and checked with Disney Cruise Line about your question. The cast member I spoke to suggested that you transfer the diapers into luggage or a bag that you might otherwise check. Her reasoning was that the luggage or bag would be more durable than a box, and this would help to protect the diapers and wipes while they are being loaded onto and carried about the ship. You will receive two luggage tags per guest, and you can use one of these for the suitcase or bag into which you put the diapers and wipes. If you have further specific questions on this, I suggest that you call Disney Cruise Line.

    Disney Cruise Line offers some great resources to help guests to pack, including a what to pack for your cruise list and a list of prohibited items.

    My biggest tip when it comes to packing is to be sure to pack your carry-on luggage intentionally. You will not have access to your checked luggage immediately when you are on the ship, so your carry-on bag should include your required travel documents, medication, valuables, and anything else that is very important to you. For my family, that means swimsuits so that we can head to the pools right away. For you, this will also include the amount of diapers that you would need in a day!

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Nikole. Please sail on back to planDisney if you have any further questions in planning your magical cruise!
