Ahoy there. If you’re cruising on Disney Cruise Line September 30 or later, you should be aware of a new alcohol policy for guests wishing to BYOB. Thanks to Tammy Whiting for being on Twitter this morning and catching this while we slept in.

The previous policy was very generous, allowing guests to bring in whatever they could hold in a carry on bag. The new policy is more strict and more in line with other cruise line policies:

Disney Cruise Line Alcohol Policy

  • Each Guest 21 years and older may bring two bottles of unopened wine or champagne (no larger than 750ml) or six beers (no larger than 12oz) onboard in carry-on luggage at the beginning of the voyage and at each port-of-call.
  • All alcoholic beverages packed in checked luggage will be removed and stored until the completion of the cruise.
  • Wine or champagne in excess of the two allowable bottles or beer in excess of the six beers will be stored and Guests may retrieve them at the end of the voyage.
  • All liquors and spirits (including powdered alcohol) are prohibited and will be stored until the completion of the cruise.
  • Guests must retrieve any stored alcohol at the end of the cruise. Uncollected alcohol will be destroyed and no compensation will be offered.
  • Alcohol brought on board may not be consumed in any lounge or public area.
  • Effective Sept. 30, 2015, the corkage fee charged to Guests who bring their own wine or champagne into one of our restaurants will be $25 per bottle.

The Disney Cruise Line Terms & Conditions page has been updated to reflect these changes.

    This is outrageous!!!! I am shocked and appalled by disneys decision to join in the line of those cruise lines which prohibit the bringing on board of such spirits. I am typing as one who only takes disney cruises for a number of reasons. And one who has three cruises booked in the period of less than 14 months! Shame on you disney for instead of taking the lead you have joined the pack.

    Too bad, so sad. No more margaritas or Ceasars with breakfast for me. (That was by far my favorite use of WDW resort mugs.)

    The drinks on board aren’t that expensive, especially as a percentage of total trip costs.
