We understand that we can carryon 2 bottles of wine or 6 beers. Will I be able to take a corkscrew in carryon or checked luggage?

Why birth certificates? Also, do they definitely have puddle jumpers to use or buy? I don't want to fly with those. Thanks!

If you have a passport, you won't need your birth certificate. Complimentary flotation vests are available on the pool decks aboard all Disney ships. You can't take them off the ship, but they are available at Castaway Cay and on most Disney Excursions involving water/ beach activities.

There is no pirate night for Alaska cruises. Keep the pirate costumes home and bring rain gear. Don't over pack; you may have tea with a princess but you won't have dinner with the queen of England . We, my husband and I, did the two week cruise on the Wonder through the Panama canal with only a roll on each. Yes, the Mouse is very strict on over the door anything. Use magnetic hooks and clips.

You would need to pack it in luggage that would be checked in, not carry on.


Friday 15th of March 2019

Please do not pack drinks in carry on luggage at the port. They should be carried on. The porters are not very gentle with the luggage and if your bottles of water break, they can make a mess of your things and other people's things, too.

How do you get bottled water onto the ship if you are flying? It was you can take that and alcoholic beverages (only a certain amount) in your carry on, but you can't carry that onto a plane! We are flying non-stop to Orlando and taking the Disney shuttle bus to the port. Any suggestions?

If you are flying in the day/eve before, take a rideshare service from MCO to the nearby Walgreens (Semoran Rd.) and back. There's a Starbucks and several restaurants in the same area as the Walgreens, too.
