|The cruise terminal in Port Canaveral. Let your Disney Cruise Line Vacation begin!|
2. Travel Documents - Very important! Don't pack that passport or any of your cruise documents in a bag you check at the airport. You'll need this important information for embarkation so make sure all of the documents you need are available for you and all members of your traveling party.
3. Snacks - Once you board the ship, finding food won't be a problem - trust me! However, you may find yourself with some downtime in the cruise terminal before boarding. Especially if you're traveling with little ones, having a few snacks on hand can make the wait more manageable.
4. Autograph Book - I always like ordering an autograph book online before my Disney vacation so that it's ready to go when we arrive. This is true for Disney Cruise Line vacations too. Mickey and Minnie are often in the cruise terminal posing for pictures during embarkation. Having an autograph book available can help you start capturing those character signatures right away.
5. Dinner Clothing - If you're like me, you dress pretty comfy casual on a travel day. Coupled with relaxing by the pool when I arrive, I certainly would not feel ready for dinner in the clothes on my back. Again, with DCL not guaranteeing your bags to arrive prior to dinner, you will want to have any change of clothing for dinner ready in your carry on. Don't forget shoes too! This is especially true if you happen to have a reservation at Palo or Remy on night one of your cruise as they do have a strict dress code.
Bon voyage and happy cruising on the most magical cruise line at sea!
