Preparing for a Disney Cruise can be tricky because most people want to keep their luggage as light as possible. Luckily, Disney Cruise Line recognizes this and tries to give you some of the comforts of home in your Disney Cruise Stateroom.
10 Things in Your Disney Cruise Stateroom
The following items can be found in all Disney Cruise staterooms regardless of the Disney Cruise ship or destination:
1. Hair Dryer
Don’t waste your valuable packing space on a hair dryer.
All staterooms come with one and it can be found, along with a heat-safe pad, inside one of the bureau drawers.
2. Disney Cruise Post Cards & Disney Cruise Line Stationary
If you are considering sending a postcard home during your cruise, you don’t have to worry about buying them on board.
There are usually two postcards (featuring characters/ships) and some Disney Cruise Line stationary/envelopes inside the desk drawer.
One thing you will need is a stamp. The best place to purchase one is Castaway Cay in the Bahamas.
You will walk right by the Post Office on your way to the beach.
This is a one-of-a-kind stamp you won’t be able to get anywhere else. Just make sure you have cash/change on hand.
3. Disney Cruise Line Retractable Pen
There will be an ink pen in the desk drawer which is perfect for autographs!
There are also pens at the customer service desk if you forget one.
4. Shampoo, Body Lotion, and Hand Soap
Disney Cruise Line provides these essentials in the bathroom and will restock them daily (or as requested).
There are pump dispensers for body wash, shampoo and conditioner in the shower.
In the bathroom with shower, you will find a makeup towel and body lotion dispenser.
In the bathroom with a toilet, there is a soap dispenser to wash your hands.
5. 4 Drinking Glasses
On your stateroom desk, you will find four drinking glasses. These are great for when you bring back drinks to your room and don’t want them to leak out of the paper cups.
They are also great for when you bring your own wine or alcohol onboard and need a nice glass to drink from.
You’ll be able to lock away valuables if you feel unsafe leaving them out in your stateroom. The safe can be found inside the closet.
Just be to read the instructions on how to use the safe.
If for any reason you find that you forget your code, ask your Stateroom attendant as they have a way to access the contents of your safe in the event that you lock yourself out of it.
Don’t ask how we know this. :)
7. Mini fridge
You will have a mini fridge, hidden in the desk, where you can keep bottled water or other items cold.
This is a great place to keep your bottled water or canned beverages you might bring from home.
There is no freezer compartment.
8. Stateroom Phone
You never think that you will use a phone, but there is one beside the bed.
This is what you will use if you want to take advantage of free room service or if you need to get in touch with your room steward.
Should you get cold, you’ll find a lightweight blanket in a cabinet.
Sounds crazy that you might get cold, but sometimes a little too much sun can make your body react with a slight chill.
10. Pool Towels
You will not need your own pool/ beach towel!
There are unlimited pool towels in bins near the pools and there are towel stations when you leave the ship on Castaway Cay.
You can even take towels on your excursion, but be sure to remember to bring them back.
They are lightweight and white, so only bring your own towel if you absolutely need it.
It is nice that Disney provides so many things in your stateroom that you don’t have to over-pack! Wondering what you should bring with you on a Disney Cruise?
