Packing Tips For Your Disney Cruise Line Vacation

Author: Cara Goldsbury | Comments: 0 | Categories: DISNEY CRUISE LINE , WALT DISNEY WORLD®

It’s time to pack and you don’t have a clue of what to bring on your upcoming Disney Cruise Line vacation. Never fear . . . it’s easier than you think.

Disney Cruise Line daytime attire is very casual with shorts, capri pants, and t-shirts the norm. Even though the weather might be chilly in Port Canaveral, it warms up quickly once your cruise is underway. Only in mid-winter will you need to bring a combination of summer and somewhat warmer clothes for the sail-away party and those chillier nights on deck. For the most part pack shorts, light-colored short-sleeved or sleeveless shirts, comfortable walking shoes for shore excursions, sunglasses, hat, a couple of bathing suits and a cover-up, flip-flops, water-resistant footwear, exercise clothing, and a rain jacket for daytime hours.

Most evenings dinner in the main dining rooms is cruise casual dress with women wearing a simple dress or casual pants and a stylish blouse with sandals, and men in comfortable khakis and a short-sleeve collared shirt with loafers or sandals. Even shorts are now allowed in the dining room.

Seven night cruises have one formal night with the dress code a jacket or suit for men, and a gown or a dress for women, and one semi-formal evening with a suit or jacket for men and a dress or pantsuit for women. So bring along that special something for a more upscale evening at sea.

Palo requires dress pants and a dress shirt–jacket is optional–for men, and a dress or pantsuit for women; no jeans, shorts, capri pants, flip-flops or tennis shoes. Only at Remy is a jacket required for men and a cocktail dress, pantsuit, or skirt/blouse for women; here too no jeans, shorts, capri pants, flip-flops or tennis shoes allowed. It’s a nice change of pace to spend the evening dining in a special setting dressed to the nines!
