    Hi, I would like to know the maximum size of the carry-on for the first day we embark on the Disney Cruise please? How many can each person bring? How many regular luggage ( mot carry-on) are we aloud? Thank you

    Ahoy, Christine!

    Thank you for sailing back over to SEA us hEAR at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your vacation aboard Disney Cruise Line is just a few weeks away, so I know you're planning what all you'll need onboard. I'm sure your crew can't wait to enjoy a magical adventure with Captain Mickey and Captain Minnie

    Each Guest is allowed two pieces of luggage to be checked and delivered to your stateroom, Christine. You'll receive two luggage tags per Guest in the mail very soon. Carry-on luggage should not be larger than 22" wide, 14" high, and 9" deep as it will have to go through an x-ray machine before you can enter the cruise terminal. Two carry-on items are allowed per Guest. As you plan what to bring on board with you, keep in mind that staterooms are not ready until 1:30 p.m., so you'll be responsible for your carry-on luggage until then. You also want to keep important items such as passports and medications with you along with anything you may need the first afternoon. This may include your pool essentials-bathing suits, sunscreen, flip-flops, and coverups. I highly recommend checking the Disney Cruise Line packing list before you finalize what you plan to bring. 

    Christine, I always tend to overpack, but luckily the stateroom accommodations offer plenty of storage for everything I "think" I need while sailing with Disney Cruise Line. And I love how easy it is to slide luggage underneath the bed, so it's out of the way. I like to use packing cubes to help organize our clothes and always bring a pop-up hamper to keep in the closet. Once the hamper gets full, I use an empty packing cube to pack the dirty clothes and place it back in a suitcase under the bed. By the end of the cruise, there isn't a lot of packing to do, which makes the last night preparations quite simple. 

    It was a pleasure assisting you, Christine. Please let us know if you have any additional last-minute questions. 

    Have a DREAMy vacation!
