Luggage permitted on Disney cruises

What’s the baggage allowance on a Disney cruise? Generally speaking and similarly to other cruise lines, the Disney Cruise luggage limit is more generous than say airlines or bus companies’ policies.

A normal ticket includes:

  • Two suitcases per person on board, no more than 50 lbs (approx 23 kg). This must be checked luggage.
  • Carry-on bag which cannot exceed 22″ wide, 14″ high and 9″ deep (approx 55 x 35 x 23 cm)

Although there are not strict luggage restrictions for Disney Cruises and you may be able to check a heavier suitcase, please be mindful the crew will take your suitcases from the port to the staterooms and unload them again on the final day. As for Disney cruise Carry on luggage, please note that if the bags are exceedingly heavy or big a crew member may ask you to check them instead.

Carrying extra luggage
  • If you are planning a longer trip, for example, if you plan to board two consecutive cruises or are staying at a Disney park and will likely surpass the Disney Cruise luggage limit, you can book a delivery service with Eurosender.
  • If you have booked a fly-cruise, that requires a plane trip to get to the departure spot, you will have to consider the airlines’ luggage policy. Usually, these policies are far more restricting than Disney cruise luggage restrictions. If you want to avoid the extra fees and the steep prices of adding a piece of luggage to your plane ticket, you can ship your bag directly to the departure city or town with our platform.

Cruisers’ advice:

  • Bring a change of clothes in your carry-on or hand luggage just in case your luggage does not reach your cabin before dinner. The first day on most Disney cruisers is Cruise Casual and remember, no tank tops are allowed!
  • Bring a bathing suit on your carry on so you can enjoy the pool.
  • If you are disembarking, remember the crew will remove your luggage from the stateroom the night before you get to your destination. Make sure you have enough space in your carry-on bags for all the items left in your cabin, such as toiletries.
  • If you take daily medicine, bring a few extra just in case there are any delays or problems during the journey.
  • If you are travelling with children, you can bring magnets of non-sticky decoration to put on the outside of your stateroom door. This way it will be easier for them to walk freely and find the room.

Please note all suitcases and bags go under inspection and X rays before they are loaded into the ship. If you are travelling with forbidden or restricted or prohibited luggage on a Disney cruise they will be seized and will not go on the ship.
