    Hi! I was wondering if I can carry a case of water along with my carry on, or must the water bottles be inside the carry on?

    Hello there, Rebecca! Welcome to planDisney. Thanks for cruising our way. My pals and I are always happy to help. 

    Yes, you can carry a case of water on the ship if you would like. Please keep in mind that your stateroom may not be ready to enter until 1:30 p.m. on the day of your arrival. You will need to keep your carry-on luggage with you until you can access your stateroom. If you are traveling with a group, it might be easiest to place a few water bottles in each item of carry-on luggage that your group is bringing onboard to distribute the weight. 

    My family loves to head straight to Cabanas (or Marceline Market if sailing on the Disney Wish) for our first lunch on board. You'll also find one main dining restaurant that will be open for lunch for a limited time if you would like to start your vacation with a slower-paced meal. After lunch, we drop our carry-on items in our stateroom and head to the pool if the weather is warm. We grab a soft-serve ice cream cone and look over the daily activity schedule within the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to plan out our day. 

    If you scroll through the activities and find something that interests you, click the heart icon within the listing. The app will send a reminder notification about 15 minutes before the activity is set to begin so you won't miss out on the fun! I recommend that you try out activities early on in the cruise because they may be offered more than once and you will want to do them again. That's how I am with the trivia games and family-style game shows. 

    There are a number of activities onboard that appeal to guests of all ages, so get out and enjoy your vacation. It's just around the corner! Have an incredible time aboard the Disney Cruise Line. 

    Bon Voyage,
