This Disney alcohol policy, wine packages, wine list prices review is from the "cruise lines alcohol policies" category in our "Alcohol Drinks Packages Menus" section.

Disney Cruise Alcohol Policy - drinking age, bringing liquor and wine onboard Disney ships

Disney Cruise Alcohol Policy - bringing liquor on Disney ships
Disney cruise alcohol policy about drinking age (on all Disney ships and all itineraries) is 21. Disney Cruise Line doesn't prohibit passengers from bringing alcohol on board.

Disney policy about bringing liquor onboard says that at embarkation you can bring your own liquor onboard, but it is allowed to consume in cabins only. Alcohol brought by guests on board mustn't be consumed in any public or lounge area. Passengers who arrive in dining rooms with a bottle of champagne or wine will be charged $20.00 25.00 corking fee per bottle.

Disney cruise guests may bring only one unopened bottle of Champagne (wine), or six bottles (cans) of beer - per person. However, any fragile item (which includes alcohol) must only be hand-carried in carry-on luggage or a day bag which can't exceed 14" high, 22" wide, and 9" deep (or in centimeters, it's 36x56x23).

If you dare thinking about Disney cruise alcohol policy that yours is going to be a bag full of liquor fragile bottles that aren't going to break, you're wrong. Because obviously you have never seen port luggage process - putting anything that is fragile in porters' hands is a disaster. Disney line's alcohol policy about fragile items (which include beverages) says that the line reserves right to remove them from checked luggage. In such case, all fragile things will be stored, subsequently returned when voyage ends.

NOTE: Starting Sept. 30, 2015 Disney Cruise Line limited how much beer and wine guests are allowed to bring onboard. Spirits and liquor are no longer permitted.

Passengers 21 years or older may bring a max of two bottles unopened wine or Champagne (less than 750 ml) or 6 beers (less than 12 ounces) on board a cruise ship of Disney at the beginning of the voyage, as well as at each port. Any beer, wine or Champagne in excess of this amount is taken and stored until the end of cruise.

The beverages must be put in carry-on bags. Any booze found in checked luggage is removed and stored until the end of sailing. Any powdered alcohol, liquor or spirits found is also taken and stored.
The confiscated alcohol must be picked up by travelers: it is not distributed to cabins. Those items that are not picked up, are destroyed; no compensation is offered.

Beer, wine and Champagne brought on board may be consumed only in the dining room (a corkage fee of $25 is applied - up from $20), or in passengers' cabins.

Disney cruises beverage policy rules and allowance

  • Coolers aren't permitted onboard except for passengers who need them for medication, items which are related to different dietary constraints, or baby food. Items have to be unopened, pre-packaged, and can't require food prep from kitchen. Coolers with personal items (e.g. candy, soda, chips) must not be brought.
  • Homemade or pre-cooked items purchased on way to the Disney ship, containers with snack items or open bags won't be allowed to be brought onboard. Disney ships refrigeration and storage aren't available to use.
  • Onboard Disney, mark-up on wine is quite high, so if you have some bottles to drink at dinner, before going to the dining room better bring with you and cork in your room.
  • Check your wine local shop or shipping site for packaging options. You can use wine shipper box.
  • Complimentary juices with in room breakfast menu are available. So you can add a few orange juices or even request cranberry juice - leave them for later in the mini-fridge. The stateroom attendant will bring ice in a silver bucket. On the pool deck pop is available at 24/7 beverage complimentary station. So Coke for rum is taken care of.
  • Drink specials are available each day, so ask the bartender about the drink of the day. Or check the Personal Navigator - there is one with and one without alcohol, the price is discounted slightly.
  • You can bring purchased at ports of call liquor onboard but have to consume it in the cabin. The liquor purchased in Disney cruise ships duty-free shops must be held until last night of your voyage.
  • Captain's cocktail party is open to all guests on formal night, and provides a wide choice of complimentary drinks.
  • Disney cruise beer list onboard Disney ships is a wide choice- Yuengling, Coors, Samuel Adams, Michelob Ultra, Guinness, Heineken, Stella, Miller, Budweiser, and Blue Moon. Bottled beers list includes Miller, Bud Light, Bud Light Lime, Budweiser, Amstel Light, Heineken, Guinness, Newcastle Brown Ale, and Harp lager.

Each traveler who returns from Eastern Caribbean to USA can bring up to the total of $1,200 worth duty-free merchandise - it's the retail price. No more combined purchases than the cost of $800 can be made onboard Disney ship, Castaway Cay, and St Maarten. The entire exemption of $1,200 may be used alone on St Thomas' purchases.

Each passenger who is 21 or older is limited to five liters alcohol. Onboard Disney or in St Maarten you can acquire only a liter, with additional four liters if purchased on St Thomas (provided that at least one liter is US Virgin Islands produced in).
