    We sail on DCL next week, wondering if we need to pack beach towels or a hairdryer? Are those items available on the ship. Trying to keep the packing to a minimum.

    Ahoy, Michelle!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Squeee! I'm so excited to hEAR that you'll be setting sail aboard a Disney Cruise next week! Captain Mickey is busy planning all of the onboard activities for you and your pirate crew! If you haven't done so already, download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app for your smartphone. Once onboard, you'll be ready to have the schedule of activities right in the palm of your hand!

    It sounds like your suitcases are out and you've already started to pack! Beach towels are available in abundance on the pool deck. If your voyage sails to Castaway Cay, you won't need to worry because they're also available for you as soon as you disembark the ship and step onto the island! Also, if you've scheduled a splashtacular Port Adventure through Disney Cruise Line, towels will be provided for you at your designated Port Adventure meeting location (which will be noted on the Port Adventure tickets you'll receive once onboard). The only scenarios when towels won't be provided are if you're planning to explore a beach on your own (besides Castaway Cay) or have made arrangements, not through Disney Cruise Line, to go on an excursion at a particular port of call.

    You will fall in love with your stateroom onboard! Each stateroom will have a hairdryer in it, so no need to bring your hairdryer from home, either! I have thick, naturally curly hair that has a mind of its own once those ocean breezes hit. I find the hairdryers provided in our home away from home to work super well straightening my unruly curls!

    Michelle, if you can think of any other questions before next week, please come back and visit us again!
