UPDATE: Disney Cruise Line is changing their alcohol policy as of September 30, 2015. Starting then, there are now limits on how much beer and wine you can carry on. See the post on the DisneyCruiseLineBlog for more information.
We recently went on a 7-night Western Caribbean cruise on the Disney Fantasy and spent some time getting the beer lists for the various bars and lounges on the ship. While the selection isn’t as good as your favorite better beer location, it is getting better. Hopefully, this Guide to Beer on Disney Cruise Line will help you plan your DCL cruise.
One thing nice about the Disney Cruise Line is that you are allowed to carry on your own alcohol as long as it fits in a soft-sided 12-pack cooler (No ice – Only one per adult over 21 years of age allowed). As you can see above, we took some local favorites with us and also picked up some Florida favorites before the cruise too. The beverage cooler in our stateroom kept everything cool and our stateroom attendant kept our ice bucket filled so we could fill one of the soft-sided coolers to take with us pool side. Then, at the end of the cruise, we just folded the soft-sided coolers flat and slipped them into our suitcases. Saved a lot on our bar bill this way.
