    My suitcase is a tad bit larger than what I have read is allowed. It is only like 3 to 4 inches bigger. I used it when we cruised in may of 2016. We carried all of our luggage on. We only had 2 bags and a beach bag. Did they change the size since then?

    Ahoy, Debra!

    It's great to hEAR that you'll be taking the plunge and setting sail aboard Disney Cruise Line for another magical vacation. Packing is always a challenge for me because I love to bring everything but the kitchen sink! I never know what I might need at sea so I'm impressed that you can fit everything you need into two carry-on size bags along with your beach bag! 

    I reached out to Disney Cruise Line to check about the sizes of carry-on bags allowed onboard and was told that the policy has not changed. Bags should be no larger than 22" X 14" X 9" to be able to fit through the x-ray machines at the cruise terminal. If your bag does not fit, the security workers will have you check the bag, but you can always try it since it fit before. My family checks our bags (since I'm an overpacker) and we've always had our luggage delivered in a timely manner. I can't remember it ever arriving after 5:00 p.m., so I wouldn't worry too much if your bag has to be checked. 

    Thank you so much for sending in your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Debra! Your cruise must be right around the corner if you are already thinking about what to bring so please keep us in mind if you have any other questions. 

    Have a magical day and happy packing!
