How To Avoid Getting Sick on a Disney Cruise

No matter what scare tactic headlines you may have seen, getting sick on a cruise is rare. Particularly on a Disney cruise, which has the highest standards of any cruise line out there. However, it does sometimes happen. Fortunately there are lots of steps that you can take to minimize your risk that you will get sick on a cruise.

Stuff happens on a ship – just as it does anywhere. No one can say that you won’t get sick on a cruise or any other type of vacation you go on. However, these simple precautions will help you enjoy a happy and healthy cruise.

gettingsickonacruise
how toavoidgettingsickonadisneycruise

Wash Your Hands

We really can’t say enough how important it is to wash your hands. Always wash your hands before and after eating, and after you use the bathroom. Think about avoiding surfaces that others will touch frequently such as hand rails and bathroom door handles.

In every Disney cruise bathroom there is a disposable hand towel and trash can by the door. Use the hand towel to open the door so that your hand is not touching the surface.

Wash your hands before and after going to the buffet and the restaurants. There will always be a Disney crew member at the entrance to the restaurant giving out hand sanitizing wipes. Make sure you use them!

Deal With Jet Lag and Flying

If you are flying over several time zones to get to your Disney cruise, it may be that you need to do your best to combat jet lag. Even if you just travel from California to Florida that is a 3 hour time difference. We have done this many times and it takes adjustment. Nothing like the 8 hour time difference over the Atlantic, but it still has an effect.

If you can, arrive early at your port destination and take some time to get used to the time change. Then you will not be dealing with the time adjustment and having this affect you on the cruise.

There are some simple things you can do to help minimize jet lag. When you reach your destination you should try and get on the new schedule as soon as possible. Go to bed at your usual time in the new time zone. It can be difficult staying awake, but it pays off.

We also think that this Homeopathic Jet Lag Remedy makes a difference.

Even without jet lag, flying can have health consequences. It is easier to pick up air borne illnesses. We are not suggesting you become a germophone, but some simple precautions will help to cut down your risk. We always take these Hand Sanitizing Wipes. You can use them to refresh your hands as well as to wipe down surfaces such as tray tables and arm rests on the plane.

Water is Everywhere

Staying hydrated is always important. The water on a Disney cruise is safe to drink. Yes, even out of the stateroom bathroom faucet. It isn’t that great of a taste though. We always have a Water Bottle and fill it up with iced water from the pool deck.

Be careful when you get off the ship in port. There are some areas, for example in Mexico, where the local water is not safe to drink. Always choose bottled water. Remember too that fruit and vegetables may be washed in local water, so sticking to cooked food is best. If you do eat raw fruit and vegetables pick ones that have been peeled so that you don’t eat the skin.

You should be sure to always stay hydrated on a flight too. However, there is a reason why flight attendants never drink the water on the plane, unless it comes from a bottled source. EPA testing has shown that 1 in 8 planes fails the water standards safety test. Flight attendants don’t think it is worth taking the risk and neither do we. Coffee and tea is made from water from the plane. Bottled water and drinks are a much safer option.

Avoid Sunburn

You may be having fun in the sun, but you need to make sure that you stay well protected from the sun. Sun burn is not only painful, it can have very serious health consequences for the future. Make sure that you limit your time in the sun. Falling asleep pool side is tempting. However, it is not so great if you wake up to a serious case of sun burn.

Always wear Sun Screen and keep reapplying it.

If you do get too much sun you can try this to soothe your skin.

If you are lucky enough to be sailing to Disney’s Castaway Cay you will want to make sure that you take your sun screen with you. There is plenty of shade available, but it is tempting to spend a lot of time in the sun. Use your common sense.

Get Your Sea Legs!

We have spent months at sea and never suffered from sea sickness. The Disney ships are the best in the industry and are very stable. We have sailed through hurricanes and felt tine. However, for some sea sickness can be an unpleasant reality of cruising.

There are many things you can do to help. Your choice of Disney cruise stateroom can have a huge influence on whether or not you get sea sick. Motion is felt very differently in different parts of the ship.

By selecting a Disney cruise stateroom in the middle of the ship on a lower deck. You can read our guide for more information:

Disney Cruise Ship Staterooms to Avoid

There are lots of natural remedies to help. We always pack sea bands just in case.

You may also want to pack Dramamine Non-Drowsy Naturals with Natural Ginger as this is very highly rated. Remedies are sold on board all Disney ships, but of course they are more expensive than if you buy them before you travel.

Ginger works really well for sea sickness too. These Sailors’ Secret Premium Ginger Remedy can help alleviate the symptoms.

Be Honest When You Board Your Disney Cruise

When you arrive at the Disney Cruise Terminal you will be asked to fill in a form detailing whether or not you have experienced any symptoms of sickness. Out of consideration for your fellow passengers please be honest.

If you answer yes to any of these questions it does not mean that you will be confined to your stateroom for the duration of the cruise. You will meet with one of the Disney cruise medical staff who will assess your symptoms. Yes, they may determine that you are not fit to cruise or should be confined to your stateroom for a period of time. However, you are doing the other passengers and crew a great service with your honesty.

Be Careful Not to Over Indulge

You are on vacation and everyone wants to have a good time. However, think twice before having that extra dessert or another drink of the day. There is so much great food on board a Disney ship it can be very tempting to over eat.

However, if you take this a little too far your health and your waist line is not going to thank you! Enjoy your Palo Brunch, the buffet and the restaurants, but maybe say no to that second helping of chocolate dessert.

How Do You Get to Stay in Disney’s Cinderella Castle Suite?

Cinderella Castle Suite

Cinderella Castle Suite

How do you make a reservation at Disney’s Cinderella Castle Suite in the Magic Kingdom? How can you get to stay inside Disney’s Cinderella Castle Suite? The Cinderella Castle Suite is the only place that you can stay overnight inside Disney’s Magic Kingdom. However, only a very limited amount of people will ever get to stay there.

Many of us dream of staying in Cinderella’s Castle, but few will ever get the opportunity. It takes rather more than just a little bit of Disney Pixie Dust to get the chance to spend a night in Magic Kingdom.

A Disney Cinderella Castle Suite Reservation is unfortunately something which not even money can buy and is open only to a very fortunate few.

Disney Cinderella Castle Suite Back Story

thecinderellasuite

Disney World first announced the creation of the Cinderella Suite in 2006. The space which is now the Cinderella Castle Suite was originally intended to be a place that Walt Disney and his family would stay in the park. Sadly, Walt Disney never got to see his creation as he died in December 1966, almost five years before the Magic Kingdom opened.

Title Photo by DarrenWittko

Before 2006 the space in Cinderella Castle was empty, although at times it was used for storage and was also the home of the Disney telephone operators for a while.

However, with the launch of The Year of A Million Dreams in 2007, Disney wanted something as a very special prize for a select few lucky guests.Disney created the ultimate place to stay in Walt Disney World – the Cinderella Castle Suite. One lucky person, and up to 5 guests, were chosen to spend the night in the Cinderella Suite.

The Year of a Million Dreams finished in 2008 – almost a decade ago. Since then, Disney has occasionally chosen families to stay in the Cinderella Suite. It is also sometimes offered as a prize in a sweepstakes – this is rare though. We always publish those competitions here so keep on the look out for the latest one.

Money can’t buy a night in the Cinderella Castle Suite – but you can read our guide to the very best hotels at Disney World.

Look Inside Cinderella’s Castle Suite

cinderellacastlebedroom

What exactly is inside Cinderella’s Castle Suite? It has the kind of amazing detailing that you would expect from the Disney Imagineers. The Suite is intended to make you feel not just that you are inside the Castle but that you are immersed in the whole experience.

The inspiration for the design of the Cinderella Suite were the 17th century French chateaus upon which the Castle was modeled. The Suite has ornate furnishings in dark woods with opulent fabrics. Certainly fit for a Disney Princess.

Watch this video for an exclusive tour and peek inside the Cinderella Castle Suite. It is probably the closest that any of us are going to get!

The Cinderella Castle Suite is on the fourth floor and is accessed by a special elevator. Inside, the Suite is perhaps smaller than most people imagine at just 650 square feet.

cindrellacastlesuitecost

The bedroom has 2 beautiful Queen sized beds facing an ornate fireplace. Above the fireplace is a 17th century style portrait of Cinderella. However, all is not what it seems as the portrait magically transforms into a flat screen television! There is even a remote control for the lights and the fireplace.

Cinderella’s Glass Slipper finds pride of place in the Suite.

disneycinderellacastlesuitebathroom

The bathroom houses a huge garden tub with ornate stained glass windows and a twinkling star ceiling.

Guests may be surprised that it isn’t easy to get a view of the Magic Kingdom from the Suite. The windows are small and stained glass. There is a balcony outside the Suite but it is not accessible for guests.

So how do you make a reservation for Cinderella’s Castle Suite? Unfortunately you can’t. Disney occasionally gives away a nights stay as a prize. The last guest known to have stayed at the Cinderella Suite was Kevin Jonas and his wife Danielle as they celebrated their first wedding anniversary on December 19th 2010.

Tom Cruise also stayed in the Cinderella Suite with Suri. Mariah Carey has also had the privilege of staying there. So obviously being an international superstar, preferably one who has made Disney many millions of dollars, must help in getting a reservation!

Disney Cruise Ship Staterooms To Avoid

disneycruiseverandahstateroom

When you book a Disney cruise your choice of stateroom is one of the most important decisions that you need to make. There are so many things to do on a Disney cruise that you may not plan to spend much time in your stateroom.

However, what you must be sure of is that you are making the right choice.

disneycruiseverandahstateroom
Here our guide will help you make the best choice of Disney cruise stateroom – and avoid the ones that may leave you wishing that you had stayed on dry land.

disney cruise cabinsto avoid
disneycruisestateroomstoavoid
disneycruisestateroom

Size Is Important

Disney cruises has some of the largest staterooms at sea. They are up to 25% larger than average cruise line cabins. That makes a huge difference when you compare them with other cruise lines.

However, not all Disney cruise staterooms are created equal. As you would expect, the general rule is that the lower the price, the smaller the stateroom.

The different stateroom categories can be split into four. On a Disney cruise you can choose from an Inside, Outside, Verandah and Concierge stateroom. Within those categories are different choices as well.

If you pick an Inside stateroom these range from the Standard at 184 square feet up to 214 square feet for the Deluxe Inside stateroom. Those extra square feet may make a huge difference to your family.

Always think carefully about the type of stateroom that you choose. If you want help with more detail about the different categories you can read this

A Room With A View?

disneysandiego

Usually the least expensive staterooms on a Disney cruise are the Inside cabins. These staterooms do not have a direct view of the outside.

If you sail on the Disney Fantasy or the Disney Dream you will have a virtual porthole in an Inside Stateroom. This is a unique feature for Disney cruises. It has a video feed which shows you what it happening outside the ship. If you watch carefully you may even see Mickey and his friends.

If you want a real view of the ocean you need to book either an Outside or Verandah stateroom. One choice is an Obstructed View Outside or Verandah Stateroom. This usually means that your view will be obstructed by a lifeboat, post or panel.

The degree of obstruction varies a lot. Some you would barely notice the obstruction, but others really do block your view.

The bonus of Obstructed View Staterooms is that they are usually offered at a lower price than others in that category. You just have to weigh up how important the view is for you and balance that against the price difference.

Sea Sickness Anyone?

Disney Wonder Panama Canal Cruise

One of the things which doesn’t get talked about very often is the possibility of experiencing sea sickness on a Disney cruise. It happens. It is rare and we can thankfully say that even in hurricane conditions we have never had a problem. However, some people do.

If you are concerned about sea sickness you should pick a stateroom which is midship and on a lower deck. Other advise would be to pick an Inside Stateroom as it is closer to the middle of the ship and you will experience less motion. However, others would say that a Balcony Stateroom would be a better choice as you could see the horizon.

What Is That Noise?

disney cruise stateroom

Different locations on the ship are noisier than others. The quietest places on the ship tend to be at the end of the end of the corridor and on the middle decks. Look carefully at the Disney Cruise Ship deck plans.

If you are on the highest deck under the pools you may hear music and sun loungers being moved. If you are on the lower decks you may hear the sound of the anchor being lowered when the ship gets into port.

Staterooms near the elevators get more foot traffic with people passing to get to their cabins. You may want to avoid a stateroom directly opposite the laundry as well.

Always look at the Disney cruise ship deck plans to see what is above and below your stateroom.

Is A Guarantee a Good Thing?

Disney Cruise Military Discount

A Disney Cruise Guarantee stateroom has advantages and disadvantages. By booking a category guarantee you are saying that you will accept any stateroom either at the level you have booked or above.

For example, if you book an Outside Guarantee Stateroom you are booking a minimum of an Outside cabin. You can’t be downgraded to an Inside, but there is a remote chance you will be upgraded to a Verandah.

However, the possibility of an upgrade is just that – a possibility. It does happen, but it is rare. Never book a Guaranteed Stateroom thinking that you have a chance of an upgrade. Always make sure that you are happy with the category that you have booked. That upgrade will probably not happen.

The advantage of a Guarantee is the price. Usually you will get a lower price on a Guarantee that you would for a specified stateroom.

The disadvantage is that you will not know which stateroom you will be allocated until very shortly before you set sail on your Disney Cruise. For some people who is fine. However, for those who want a stateroom in a particular location they need to book a specific stateroom so that they can be sure of getting what they want.

Location, Location, Location

Is it important that you are close to the restaurants, the pool or the buffet? For some this really doesn’t matter, but other guests really like to be close to certain places on the ship.

The most popular location is to be close to the pools. Others may want to be lower on the ship so that they are closer to the shops and entertainment.

The Disney Wonder and the Magic are much smaller ships than the Fantasy and the Dream. Location doesn’t matter quite as much on the classic ships as things are not placed so far apart.

Disneyland Hotel Signature Suites

Want a look inside the Disneyland Hotel Signature Suites? These 5 very special Disneyland Hotel Signature Suites are available (at a price of course) and now you can take a sneak peak inside when you watch this new video:

The Disneyland Hotel Fairy Tale Suite is a dream come true. Tinker Bell will magically greet you at the door as you enter this suite fit for a Princess and her Prince.

Disneyland Fairy Tale Suite

The canopied King Size bed is lavishly decorated. My favorite part of the suite has to be the amazing bathroom. Lots of ornate decoration in muted colors.

Disneyland hotel fairy tale suite

Of course it has a huge tub and a television which magically appears in the mirror.

The Pirates of the Caribbean Suite starts with the theme as soon as you arrive with the doorbell that plays Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Pirate’s Life For Me.

Disneyland Hotel Pirates of the Caribbean Suite

The decor in the Pirates of the Caribbean Suite is rich dark woods, with luxurious soft furnishings. You would of course expect to find treasures inside the Pirate Suite and you won’t be disappointed. Look closely and you will find many pirate themed items including a replica of Captain Jack Sparrow’s revolver.

The Pirates of the Caribbean Suite has a living room and two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a very opulently decorated four poster bed. The kids will be happy in the second bedroom which of course has a pirate theme.

Thankfully the Disney Pirates of the Caribbean Suite has rather more updated bathroom features than you would find on a Pirate Ship and includes a Jacuzzi tub and steam shower.

Or would you prefer the Disneyland Hotel Big Thunder Mountain Suite?

Disneyland Hotel Big Thunder Mountain Suite

Push the doorbell and you will hear the sound of howling wolves. Push a button on the wall and you will hear sounds from the classic Big Thunder Mountain attraction. You will have all the luxury and amenities that you would expect including a flat screen television that conceals art work, a surround sound system, and of course lots of mine train artifacts.

There are 2 bedrooms in the Big Thunder Mountain Suite. Lots of dark wood and comfortable furnishing which give a rustic theme.

Big Thunder Mountain Suite Bathroom

This bathroom in the Big Thunder Mountain Suite has a wonderful copper bath. And of course there is a television screen concealed in the bathroom mirror so you can watch your favorite Disney movies while soaking in the tub.

How about staying in the Mickey Mouse Penthouse Suite in the Disneyland Hotel?

Disneyland Hotel Mickey Mouse Penthouse Suite

This suite has a very modern feel and is decorated in the Mickey Mouse colors of black, white, red and yellow. This has to be the least favorite for me. The master bedroom features a King bed, whilst the kids will love the round bed in their room.

The master bathroom has a steam shower, Jacuzzi tub and of course a television concealed in the mirror.

The Adventureland Suite at the Disneyland Hotel takes it’s inspiration from the Jungle Cruise and the Enchanted Tikki Room in the parks.

Disneyland Hotel Adventureland Suite

There is a beautiful four poster king bed in the master bedroom on the Adventureland Suite. Dark woods and lavish fabrics evoke a jungle safari feel – with a lot of luxury of course. An unusual feature is the claw foot bath in the bedroom. The second bedroom is a kids dream as the design makes it feel as though you are sleeping in a safari tent.

The best feature of the Adventureland Suite is the stone grotto. An amazing steam and rain shower which even has light and sound effects.

Disney Adventureland Suite
