    Hi! I understand that beer and wine are allowed in your carry-on for DCL. Does this include non-traditional wines, for example the Fly Bird agave “wine cocktail” that is sold in targets. It is not a distilled spirit, it has the same ABV as regular wine.

    Ahoy there Cynthia, and welcome aboard planDisney - your destination for some nautical knowledge ahead of your voyage this month!

    As a seasoned sailor, I've witnessed my share of different kinds of beverages that guests and crew alike have attempted to bring on board. While some cruise companies are exceptionally strict on this, Disney Cruise Line's policy for bringing alcohol on board may seem relatively more generous than others. However, policies are subject to change without prior notice and unfortunately there's no telling for sure whether pre-mixed or bottled cocktail drinks will be allowed past the initial security screening if for any reason the security screening personnel decide that it counts as a prohibited item in their eyes. If you're anything like Captain Jack Sparrow, you might find yourself asking "why is the rum gone?" as they either discard it or seal it away to be returned at the end of your voyage.

    I did take the opportunity to reach out to a Disney Cruise Line Cast Member about this specific situation and they said that it is ultimately at the discretion of who you encounter on your Embarkation Day and whether they'll be able to determine upon inspecting the bottle that it could be counted as wine to be brought on board the vessel. One of the key things that may throw the screening personnel off at the Port is the fact that the bottles I've encountered of that particular product may list agave on the ingredients list - which may make them immediately think of tequila if they aren't familiar with agave wine. 

    In my opinion, I wouldn't take up that precious carry-on luggage space unless it was so important that you're willing to risk it. Instead, I would save it for a pre-voyage or post-cruise celebration back on land, and perhaps enjoy one of the Beverage Tastings available on board that can be a great way to sip and savor as you sail.

    Don't hesitate to come back to planDisney to ask me any more questions ahead of your next adventure, and be sure to reach out to our Disney Cruise Line specialists Tracie and Adrianna who may be able to help you with more ideas on how you can celebrate at sea!

    Cheers to your upcoming voyage!
