« back to Dining Onboard
Hi I'm going on the Dream in May and was wondering if they allow you to bring your own wine and beer? If so can it be brought on your checked luggage?

Congratulations on your spring cruise aboard the Disney Dream -- she is a stylish ship and her cast and crew are pros at pampering her guests!
Alcohol is permitted on board. However, any fragile items (including bottled alcohol) must be hand-carried on board in a carry-on bag (which cannot exceed 22" wide, 14" high and 9" deep). Also, guests who arrive in the dining room with a bottle of champagne, wine or liquor that has been brought onboard will be charged a corking fee of $20 per bottle.
Disney Cruise Line may remove fragile items (including beverages) from luggage. In such cases, items will be stored and returned at the end of the voyage. Beverage containers are considered fragile and have previously caused damage in checked luggage. Therefore, to be on the safe side, I would wrap your containers in bubble wrap and pack them in your carry-on bag.
Of course, you can always purchase a wine or beer package from the Gifts & Amenities page of the Planning Center. Your chilled beer will be waiting for you in your stateroom when you arrive, and wine will be paired with your food choices at dinner. I hope that helps.
Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
