Disney Cruise Vacation Things to Buy BEFORE Your Cruise

Disney Cruise Vacation Things to Buy BEFORE Your Cruise

A Disney Cruise Vacation can be tough to plan. There’s so many things to remember, from cruise documents to booking your excursions and choosing the right check in time. Between packing for your cruise, especially if you’re packing for multiple people and making sure you know how to get to the port, who has time to buy all of those last minute things? Well never fear, because we are here to help you get it all on Amazon Prime! Consider this your list for all those last minute things to buy before your Disney Cruise Vacation.

Card Holder and Lanyard for your Key to the World Card

Your Key to the World card will be the key to well, everything. So a lanyard is pretty essential, especially of you’re a first time cruiser. Silver Castaway Cay members will receive a lanyard at check in, but we prefer these ones because the complimentary ones are pretty cheap and tear easily. 

Some people prefer to carry a small bag or fanny pack during their cruise to hold their key to the world card, but keep in mind this card is what you need for even the smallest of purchases like coffee from Cove Cafe and to get into your room, so if you don’t feel like carrying a bag around on the ship, a lanyard will be your best friend. 

Sea Bands for your Disney Cruise

Whether or not you are someone who is prone to motion sickness, being prepared for sea sickness is crucial. We’ve been on several cruises at this point, in different bodies of water, at different times of the year and we have never had the same experience twice. 

We like Sea Bands because they are affordable, take little to no room in your bag and don’t have the side effects of something like Dramamine. Of course, if you prefer Dramamine or something similar for motion sickness, you can get that on Amazon too. 

Packing Cubes for your Disney Cruise Disney Very Merrytime Christmas Cruise, Christmas cruise, disney christmas cruise, disney christmas, disney dream, disney cruise line

 

Staterooms onboard Disney Cruise line are great, but they can be a little cramped, especially if you’re traveling with a full party. To help keep things organized, we always recommend packing cubes. These ones come in a variety of sizes and will help save space while keeping your stateroom organized.

Emergen-c Vitamin C Powder

Disney Cruise Line prides itself on a clean track record for onboard illness. They hand out sanitizing wipes every time you enter a dining room and you will see cast members constantly cleaning. That being said, don’t underestimate other passengers onboard. You are still in a shared living space with with strangers for the duration of your voyage and can easily pick up any germs they may have decided to bring onboard. 

In general, we don’t travel anywhere without giving our immune systems a boost with Emergen-c prior to, during and for a couple days after our trip. We aren’t doctors and this is definitely not medical advice, but we are pretty sure Emergen-c has some sort of magical powers and hasn’t let us down yet. 

Cell Phone Chargers for your Disney Cruise

As much as we love a Disney Cruise Vacation for relaxing, unwinding and unplugging, if you plan to take pictures or videos with your phone, a portable charger is going to be a must. This is especially true if you’re trying to access the ship’s onboard WiFi, which can drain your battery life FAST. Add in the fact that your DCL navigator app will be your best friend during your cruise, and the fact that you’ll likely communicate with your family or friends this way and well, I think it’s safe to say you need to keep your phone charged during your cruise.

Aside from your stateroom, there aren’t many places onboard to just plug in. Having a portable cell phone charger can be a huge lifesaver and we highly recommned grabbing one of these from Amazon

Hanging Cosmetic Toiletry Bag

Guys, the bathrooms are pretty small on a Disney Cruise. Well, there’s technically two bathrooms, one with a toilet and sink and one with a shower, but they’re both pretty little and they can get cluttered fast. We highly recommend grabbing one of these to keep things organized and keep clutter at bay in your stateroom. 

 

Sunscreen

Disney Cruise Line Tips

Ok, so we know this is kind of a no brainer. But is it really? As much we like to take for granted that everyone knows you should have sunscreen on your cruise, every cruise we always see lots of passengers buying sunscreen onboard and guess what? It is expensive. And if you’re on a cruise, whether it’s to the Caribbean or Alaska, you’ll likely be on the upper decks during some of your cruise and you’ll want to make sure you have sunscreen

We tried to keep this list small and manageable and we hope it helps you when trying to figure out what you need to buy before your next Disney Cruise Line vacation. Happy Sailing!

Things to buy before your Disney Cruise. From Sea-bands to whether or not you need a phone charger. Here's everything you need to know ahead of your cruise! #disneyvacations #disneycruise #disneyshopping
