    Does a purse count as your carry-on luggage on a Disney cruise?

    Ahoy, Katie!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! If you're thinking about carry-on luggage, it must mean that you have a Disney Cruise getting ready to set sail right around the corner! My family gets bonkers with excitement as soon as our suitcases are out and the packing process begins! It's usually just a matter of days before we're dancing on deck during the Sail-Away Celebration!

    Disney Cruise Line allows each Guest to bring two pieces of checked luggage, a carry-on bag and a personal item - like a purse or backpack. A purse would count as your personal item, but you'd still get to bring a carry-on bag as well! Depending on when your designated Port Arrival Time is, your stateroom may not be ready when you arrive onto the ship. I like to bring a rolling carry-on bag because wheeling it to the buffet lunch at Cabanas and rolling it along while exploring the ship is a breeze!

    Even though my family and I have sailed on multiple voyages with Captain Mickey, I still like to reference the Packing List for Disney Cruises before each voyage! It gives some great suggestions about what items you should pack for all the fun onboard and while visiting each port of call.

    Katie, I'm wishing you a cruise filled with pixie dust and adventure! If you have any future questions, please don't hesitate to come back and visit us again!
