Are you thinking of buying the Disney Cruise Wine Package? It can be a considerable saving for some people. Here we show you what is available to help you decide whether the Disney Wine Package is a good idea for your cruise.

What Disney Cruise Wine Packages Are Available?

There are two wine packages available for your Disney Cruise and you can purchase – The Classic and the Premium Package. You can buy 3,4,5 or 7 bottles within the package. All packages are available regardless of the length of the Disney cruise you are sailing on.

Here are the prices for the Disney Cruise Classic Wine Package:

  • 3 Bottle Classic Wine Package $95.00
  • 4 Bottle Classic Wine Package $124.00
  • 5 Bottle Classic Wine Package $149.00
  • 7 Bottle Classic Wine Package $199.00
  • Here are the prices for the Disney Cruise Premium Wine Package:

  • 3 Bottle Premium Wine Package $145.00
  • 4 Bottle Premium Wine Package $192.00
  • 5 Bottle Premium Wine Package $234.00
  • 7 Bottle Premium Wine Package $309.00
  • A 15% service charge will be added to all Wine Packages.




    How Do You Purchase a Disney Wine Package?

    You can pre-purchase the Wine Package on your Disney Cruise Personalizer, but we really don’t see any benefit in doing this, unless you like to do this to have more of an idea for your budget.

    When you board the ship there will be a table set up on the Pool Deck and in various locations on the ship which offers the various Drinks Packages for purchase. Unlike some cruise lines, Disney really doesn’t push this on you. We have rarely noticed people signing up at the tables out on the ship and most people just walk past.

    When you have your dinner in any of the restaurants one of the brochures will be on your table. Just ask your waiter if you want to purchase the Wine Package and he will arrange it for you. The Assistant Waiter is always the one who gets your drinks for you.

    What Are Your Choices on The Disney Wine Package?

    Each night you can choose as many bottles as you want from either the Classic, or if you have paid the extra, the Premium Package.

    Does the Disney Cruise Wine Package Really Save You Money?

    The Disney Cruise Wine Package can save you up to 25% per bottle. There is some variation in the wine list prices of the bottles – if you are really wanting to save the absolute most money then ask for a copy of the wine list when you order from your package. Here is how much a bottle of wine costs for each type of package:

    Here are the prices for the Disney Cruise Classic Wine Package:

  • 3 Bottle Classic Wine Package $31.66 per day
  • 4 Bottle Classic Wine Package $31.00 per day
  • 5 Bottle Classic Wine Package $29.80 per day
  • 7 Bottle Classic Wine Package $28.42 per day
  • Here are the prices for the Disney Cruise Premium Wine Package:

  • 3 Bottle Premium Wine Package $48.33 per day
  • 4 Bottle Premium Wine Package $48.00 per day
  • 5 Bottle Premium Wine Package $46.80 per day
  • 7 Bottle Premium Wine Package $44.14 per day
  • Remember again that all prices do not include the 15% automatic gratuity.

    What If I Don’t Finish The Wine?

    The Disney Cruise Wine Package is designed to be convenient. If you do not finish your bottle of wine with your meal you can either ask for it to be stored for you, or you can take it to your room. The bottles are simply corked up and stored. Even though you will be in a different dining room the next evening, your bottle will be available for you.

    If you do not finish the Wine Package before you disembark you can take up to 2 bottles of wine off the ship with you. We don’t imagine this happens very often!

    Can You Take Your Own Wine on a Disney Cruise?

    We have covered this in-depth in our post at

    Can You Really Take Your Own Wine On Board a Disney Cruise?

    Each adult can bring up to 2 bottles of wine on board a Disney Cruise. It has to be in your hand luggage. Anything found in checked luggage will be removed and returned to you on disembarkation. There is a corkage fee of $25 for wine consumed in the dining room. Obviously the up charge on some of the wines is more than $25 so if you want to save some money this could be the way.

    Any wine that you open and consume in your stateroom does not have a corkage fee. Disney has a very liberal policy about consuming your own wine in public areas – you aren’t supposed to do it, but we have never seen anyone being taken to task for it. You can ask for a wine glass from the bar or ask your room steward.
