Disney cruise – TIPS

Disney – the most magical of all things.


Can it get even better? It CAN!


All you need is a pinch of pixie dust! (And these few tips from The Educational Tourist!)

pixie-dustDecorate your cabin door!

When you cruise on a Disney ship, decorate the magnetic door to your cabin.


Bring your own stuff from home. Pinterest has more ideas than you’ll know what to do with!


Bring your Fish Extender.

A Fish Extender is a  hanging set of pockets for trinkets from your Fish Extender (FE) friends. This hangs outside your cabin door.


You need to meet your FE friends BEFORE you head out. Go online to disboards and find people who will be on the cruise with you.  Take trinkets to fill their fish extenders! Get fantastic ideas like these from pinterest.

Make your own Fish Extender or visit Etsy to buy!


Check to see if your cruise has  Pirate Night.

Pirate night has dinner with a pirate’s map menu and is followed by the Buccaneer Bash with fireworks!


Prepare to dress like a pirate! Simple white shirt and red sash = easy costume. Disney supplies the bandana. Thanks to HarvardHomemaker for the great idea!



Bring your own sunscreen. You’ll use a ton of it and it’s cheaper to buy at home.


No ouchy sunburns here!

Bring something for the characters to sign.

Put your item and sharpies in a large ziploc baggie. Deliver to Guest Services upon arrival and they’ll return in your last night.


Love the pillowcase idea!


You need the App

Download the Disney Navigator App before you leave home. This will help you plan your day so you don’t miss out on anything!


Some DON’Ts…..


1) Over the door shoe hanger organizers are NOT allowed. They scratch the door.

2) Irons are a fire hazard and will be taken out of your luggage.

3) Power strip – they blow the circuits in the rooms.

Let The Educational Tourist plan the trip of your dreams. Call now!


Happy travels filled with pixie dust!
