    On Disney Cruise Line, when you are looking at a price per stateroom, what does this include? I've heard that cruises can "nickel-and-dime" you on items like soda; is this the case on DCL as well? Are all your meals included?

    DCL will give you a big bang for your buck, including the only fireworks display at sea!

    Soda will be included at all meals, at a 24 hour beverage station and on Castaway Cay. Soda is not included from room service or any of the bars.

    What's included?

    Your meals. Choose full service meals at breakfast, lunch and dinner, order room service or visit one of the quick service locations such as Pinocchio's Pizzeria.
    Beverages (except alcohol, specialty drinks such as coffee at the Cove Cafe, smoothies, bottled water etc). There is a 24 hour beverage station on Deck 9 with milk, coffee, hot cocoa, and sodas. Soda, coffee, tea, milk, hot cocoa and water is free at meals.
    Room service including coffee, tea, milk and juice.
    Snacks (ice cream, pizza, cookies, hot dogs, etc.)
    Broadway quality shows
    Endless entertainment such as dancing, trivia games and seminars.
    Sports and recreation including pools, hot tubs, fitness center, basketball and more.
    Oceaneer Club and Lab for kids ages 3-12. DCL only charges for infants watched in Flounder's Nursery.
    Disney character greetings
    Castaway Cay includes a full day off of the ship with many complimentary activities. Sodas are available at a beverage station for free and you'll be treated to a wonderful BBQ lunch which is also included.
    TV movies
    Movie theater
    Deck parties
    Larger staterooms

    Some of the extra costs not mentioned above include:
    Dinner at Palo's, bingo, internet, shore excursions, gratuities, portraits, laundry, spa treatments, beauty salon, arcade games, shopping expenses and medical treatment.

    Remember that DCL's prices include port charges and taxes as well as reduced rates for infants and children. When comparing between cruise lines,  this is an important consideration.
