We had such a great time cruising with Disney Cruiselines last year. One of my favorite parts about the cruise was not having to worry about paying for anything. Everything, for the most, was included. You go to dinner and eat, when you are done you can just leave. However, there are a few things you need to watch out for that are not included with your cruise. We have broken down a list for you so you don’t get surprised when you take your next Disney Cruise.
Child Care 3 months to 3 years
While food and beverage are included with your cruise, alcohol is not. There are serval bars and lounges located on each ship
Palo and Remy
Arcade Games and Simulators
Unfortunately, Photopass is not available on the Disney Cruiseline. In its place, they have a similar service. There are numerous places all around the ship where you will find your favorite Disney characters along with a photographer to snap a picture for you. As well photographers will be at special events like Pirate Night and you can even find them if you stop along the way at Castaway Cay.
At any given point during your cruise, you can view and order your photos. Photographs taking onboard the Disney Cruiseline can be purchased individually or you can purchase a photo package. You can find out more information by pre-ordering your photo packages and products through My Cruise Photos before you sail. If you plan on wanting to utilize the Cruiseline photographers we highly recommend paying for a photo package.
Just like inside the Disney Parks you do not have to purchase any of the pictures and the Cast Members are happy to snap a photo for you with your personal camera!
If you must have the internet while cruising the seas Connect@Sea offers internet packages. If you are looking to stay in touch with friends and family who are also onboard the ship, fear not!
Prepackaged Room Service Items
The parking at the port is not included. When we sailed out of Port Canaveral, FL it was a $75 charge for a 3-night cruise. It gets kinda steep but the good news is there are a lot of off-site options that are much cheaper.
This one is a given! But I included this in the list because it’s an important one to factor into your cruise budget. It’s pretty hard to travel and not want to bring back some sort of goodies from your trip.

I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
