    Went on Disney Fantasy cruise without having brought correct footwear--turned out there was a huge selection of shoes to borrow on board. Cruising the Disney Wonder soon: does it have dress shoes for loan? If so, can we reserve the shoes in advance?

    Ahoy there, John and welcome to planDisney! 

    We're so glad that you've come here as your Disney Destination to get our first-hand knowledge ahead of your next Disney Cruise Line voyage. It sounds like it's been a bit of time since your cruise on board the Disney Fantasy and you must be eager to start off on the right foot as you embark on the Disney Wonder! I can definitely say that I was once in your shoes as the Disney Wonder was the first Disney Cruise Line ship that I ever set foot on; at the time, I was delighted that there were formalwear options available to rent - just to be able to feel especially polished as I feasted at Palo

    Unfortunately, while fellow seafaring guests could previously find apparel available to rent through Disney Cruise Line Gifts and Amenities, it seems that the previous formalwear partners are no longer able to provide rentals through Disney Cruise Line. In fact, I spoke with a friendly Crew Member on board who let me know that at the current time neither clothing nor shoes are available to rent across the fleet and may not be in the future. (However, I always note that policies and offerings are always subject to change without prior notice, so it's a great idea to keep an eye on any new updates as they are released.) You may have luck searching online for local formal rentals near the Port, especially if you're fortunate enough to locate a shop catering to Crew Members who may be in need of quick access to formal shoes for their work on board.

    In my experience, I tend to find dress shoes take up a considerable amount of precious luggage space so I've taken to stuffing them with items like my glasses case or chargers for electronics as a great way to economize the space while packing and helping to ensure they retain their shape. I hope this was helpful in some way John, feel free to come back to ask me anything else that may help ahead of your next voyage! Our Disney Cruise Line specialists Tracie and Adrianna are also always happy to bestow their waves of expertise upon any sailors in search of their secrets.

    Here's to putting your best foot forward as you embark on your upcoming adventure!
