Colorful Ship at Night

    Katy from TX Asked

    Hi! My family is considering the Very Merrytime Cruise this year but I have a question: If we bring wrapped presents, will they keep them wrapped or for security purposes, can we not do this? Thanks!

    Hi there, Katy!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, fellow Texan!  I am thrilled you are considering a Disney Cruise Line Very Merrytime sailing; they are SO MUCH FUN!  The decorations throughout the ship and the added onboard activities make everything so festive and merry!  My family spent Christmas aboard the Disney Wonder a few years ago and it made for a memorable and unforgettable holiday!

    You are welcome to bring wrapped packages onboard with you, either in your checked luggage or in your carry-on luggage.  There is always the chance that they need to be opened or searched, but that is on a case by case basis.  Take a glance at the list of prohibited items and as long as you are not planning on gifting a bicycle or any other prohibited item, there should not be any issue with bringing wrapped gifts onboard.  Hint: Disney gift cards make a great gift or stocking stuffer since they can be used in the onboard gift shops!

    If you do decide to go forward with booking a Very Merrytime sailing (and I highly recommend it!), be sure to look at the In-Room Gifts & Amenities available for your sailing!  We had a miniature Christmas tree in our stateroom along with some in-room decorations making our stateroom very festive and added to our family Christmas celebration within our stateroom on Christmas morning!

    Anytime you are on a Disney Cruise Line vacation gives you a reason to celebrate, but celebrating a holiday makes it even more special!  As your planning continues, please come back with any additional questions you may have!

    Happy Sailing!
