    Hi there! I am planning a Disney Cruise to go out of New York and one of the stops include a one-day visit to Disney World. I was wondering if we would be provided with meal vouchers or do we bring food from the ship to the park?

    Ahoy there, Victor!

    You've chosen an awesome itinerary for your upcoming sailing aboard Disney Cruise Line! A Disney Cruise that stops for the day at the Walt Disney World Resort will be absolutely magical! My family enjoyed this same cruise from New York a few years ago, and we LOVED the opportunity to experience Disney on land and sea! 

    Did you know that there are more than 15,400 different food items sold at the Walt Disney World Resort and over 500 food and beverage locations? I hope you'll try some when you visit on your day in the parks! When I cruised a few years ago, Disney Cruise Line did not give out any type of meal vouchers, but we did plan ahead by making an Advanced Dining Reservation at one of the many table-service restaurants on property. Advanced Dining Reservations can be made online at www.disneyworld.disney.go.com or by calling (407) 939-1947 up to 180 days prior to your dining date. Another option is to try a quick-service restaurant that offers a cafeteria or counter-service type of dining experience. I suggest browsing the Dining options now so you can become familiar with the choices at the park or parks you'll be visiting. You can take snacks and bottled water to the parks, but they must be pre-packaged and sealed in the original container to take off the ship. 

    My advice is to eat breakfast before you disembark, so you can hit the ground running once you arrive. Your cruise newsletter, the Personal Navigator, will include detailed information about your day ashore so read it carefully the night prior to your arrival. I remember the buses begin returning back to the ship around mid-afternoon so dinner on the Disney Magic is possible if you don't stay all day. 

    Good luck with your plans, Victor!
