Beverage Stations Aboard the Disney Cruise Line Ships

One of the many aspects of sailing with Disney Cruise Line that you do not have to worry about, is your beverages. You don't need to buy a soda or water package or wear a wrist band. Most beverages aboard Disney Cruise Line are complimentary.

Disney Cruise Line has twenty-four hour Beverage Stations near the pools and you can have as much as you wish. The Beverage Stations come equipped with soda/water cups and hot beverage, insulated cups, lids and straws. At these stations you'll find an abundance of soda, coffee, fountain water, ice, hot water. For the hot water, they provide a variety of tea and cocoa mixes.

You are allowed to use your own mugs, but they prefer that you use the cups they provide for hygienic reasons, which is number one on Disney Cruise Line's list. 

Soda, coffee, milk, juice, fountain water and tea are also free in all the main dining rooms. If you use Room Service, milk, coffee, tea, and juice are free, but if you order alcohol, bottled water or soda there is a charge. Room Service soda is brought in a commercial can. You are allowed to bring your own water, alcohol and soda with you. You can also order Wine Packages and water through the Planning Center on the Disney Cruise Line website and it will be ready for you when you arrive. Your stateroom is equipped with a small refrigerator.

I love what Disney Cruise Line has done with their buffet restaurant called Cabanas aboard the Disney Magic, Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. The restaurant has food stations that repeat selections allowing many people to obtain the same kind of item all at the same time, but best of all, the restaurant is configured into dining pods each complete with their own beverage station. This avoids the congestion around the beverage station, which is still the case aboard the Disney Wonder at its buffet restaurant called Beach Blanket. They do have an attendant helping people, but it can become a very busy place.

At Castaway Cay, Disney Cruise Line's private island in the Bahamas, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy a beach buffet lunch. There you will also enjoy the free beverage station as well as the soft serve ice-cream station.

Booking Disney Cruise Line with an Autistic Child In Mind

Planning, organizing, strategizing on a daily basis for an autistic child puts me in a state of constant thinking. You see, I absolutely hate inconveniencing other people be it the driver behind me  to the person standing in line in front of me at the grocery store. Always on the lookout for a a melt-down, a spontaneous, loud, sometimes inappropriate vocalization where folks don't understand and give you 'the look'. I have developed thick skin, but somedays words cut to the quick and it hurts.

Planning a Disney cruise with an autistic child in tow, means a lot of critical planning, for even the most taken for granted moments. You see, my child is a boy, and if I take him out in public, I have to make sure I can accommodate all of his needs, right down to toileting and how long the line in a store might be. So let me begin.

Booking the cruise can be a daunting process and while some folks like the luxury of a travel agent, I prefer doing everything myself. Firstly, no one can…
