Best Staterooms on a Disney Cruise

Disney Cruise Lines are perfect for families looking to enjoy quality time together. But with so many different categories and subcategories, how do you know which stateroom is right for you? Let’s investigate how to select the best staterooms on a Disney cruise for your family vacation.

Not familiar with the term “stateroom”?  Disney Cruise Line refers to the individual passenger rooms on its cruise ships as “staterooms.”  You might have heard these previously referred to elsewhere as “ cabins .”

The Disney Cruise Line offers four main types of staterooms: Concierge (the most expensive ), Veranda, Oceanview, and Inside (the least expensive). In each category and within each ship, there are different options (subcategories). Category 1 is typically the most costly, followed by Category 2, etc. Category 11 is the least expensive. Within each category, subcategory A is typically more expensive than subcategory B, and so on.

The amenities and size of the room usually correspond to the price, with Category 1 being the biggest and best while Category 11 has the smallest rooms with the fewest features.

Within each numbered category, the letter subcategories typically designate more preferable locations on the ship’s deck plan (rather than differences in stateroom amenities).  For example, a 4A stateroom might be in a better location than a 4C stateroom, but the interiors of both staterooms will be virtually identical. Note that some Concierge staterooms are an exception to this rule; Category 1A is a drastically different stateroom versus Category 1B.

Generally speaking, rooms located on higher decks or the middle of each deck plan (known as midship or mid ) are considered more preferable than lower decks or staterooms that are forward (front of the ship) or aft (rear of the ship). Which side of the ship the room is on (port side or starboard side) generally does not factor into stateroom category.

Also note that some stateroom categories cater to different travel parties. Some staterooms might only sleep up to a family of four , whereas others can hold five or more.

Please note that this guide does not include accessible suites , which offer the same level of convenience and comfort to guests with disabilities. For questions about accessible suites or any of the below-listed rooms, please get in touch with The Vacationeer .

Their team of experienced Disney travel agents will help you find the best itineraries at the lowest price, and there’s never an additional charge for their services.

Now, let’s look at the best staterooms on a Disney Cruise ship .

Concierge Staterooms (Most Expensive Main Category)

DCL Concierge Wish Tower Suite

The Concierge category offers the most luxurious – and expensive – accommodations on Disney Cruise Line. Each room has a large private verandah and premium amenities and services.

The Concierge Wish Tower Suite and the Concierge Royal Suite are the ship’s most spacious and lavishly appointed rooms. Additionally, the Concierge 1-Bedroom Suite is a more modestly priced option that still offers an incredible experience. For families, the Concierge Family Oceanview Stateroom provides plenty of space and convenient access to all of the ship’s family-friendly amenities.

Concierge-level staterooms in categories 1, 2, and 3 include additional perks , such as access to priority seating for excursions and events and exclusive access to the Concierge Lounge, where you can relax with complimentary coffee, tea, and pastries or enjoy evening hors d’oeuvres and cocktails.

Here’s a breakdown of the categories found in the Concierge category.

Category 1A – Concierge Wish Tower Suite (Disney Wish cruise ship only)

The Wish Tower Suite on Deck 14 and 15 is the Disney Cruise Line’s most luxurious room. It has two bedrooms, a space for children with two bunk beds, and a library that can convert into two more rooms. Aside from the four full bathrooms and the half-bath off the living room, the suite has floor-to-ceiling windows on both decks, providing a great view of the ship from the suite.

Eight guests can stay in this 1,966 sq. ft. suite. It has a wow factor like no other!

Recommendation :  The Concierge Wish Tower Suite is the perfect choice for families or groups who have the money to spend and won’t settle for anything less than the best. Nothing out-competes the luxury of this stateroom.  It truly is the best stateroom on a Disney Cruise.

Category 1A – Concierge Royal Suite w/ Verandah (Disney Dream, Fantasy, Magic, & Wonder cruise ships)

The Concierge Royal Suite with Verandah stateroom is the largest and most luxurious suite offered on Disney’s Dream, Fantasy, Magic, and Wonder. The Magic and Wonder ships can accommodate up to 7 guests, and the Dream and Fantasy ships can accommodate up to 5 guests.

The suite features a living area with a formal dining table and sitting area and a massive verandah with a private hot tub on the Dream and Fantasy ships. The decor in these suites is luxurious and tasteful, making it the perfect choice for those looking for the ultimate in luxury and comfort.

Recommendation :  This is the Crème de la Crème of staterooms on the Disney Dream, Fantasy, Magic, and Wonder cruise ships. If roominess and luxury are what you’re after, and you have the money to spend, then Concierge Royal Suite with Verandah is a great choice. 

Category 1B – Concierge 2-Story Royal Suite w/ Verandah (Disney Wish)

The Concierge 2-Story Royal Suite with Verandah on the Disney Wish cruise ship is a luxurious and spacious stateroom that spans two decks (decks 12 and 13). The Suite features a spiral staircase, two large bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a large dining and living area, and two large verandahs with a private hot tub.

This stateroom is an impressive 1,759 sq. ft and can comfortably sleep six guests,

Recommendation:  The 2-Story Royal Suite is another fantastic offering from the new Disney Wish. Perfect for families and groups of six who want to be treated like kings and queens. 

Category 1B – Concierge 2-Bedroom Suite w/ Verandah (Disney Magic & Wonder)

Disney Cruise Line’s Concierge 2-Bedroom Suite with Verandah features two separate bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, and a spacious sitting area.  The total area is 945 sq. ft., including the verandah, and can accommodate up to seven people. A large verandah is perfect for enjoying the views or relaxing. It is an impressive suite, perfect for a large group or family!

This stateroom is only available on Disney Magic and Disney Wonder .

Recommendation:   An excellent choice for families who want plenty of luxury and space. Choose the starboard (right) side if you sail to Castaway Cay because you will have better views of Disney’s private island when docked. 

Category 1C – 1-Story Royal Suites w/ Verandah (Disney Wish)

With a classic elegance inspired by Sleeping Beauty, the Disney Wish’s 1-Story Royal Suites with Verandah are perfect for families and groups of up to 6. There are two bedrooms, a living room and dining room, three full bathrooms, and an impressive 1,507 square feet of living space. The wet bar is perfect for entertaining, and the large private verandah with a whirlpool tub is the ideal place to relax.

Recommendation :  These beautiful and family-friendly staterooms will make your cruise vacation unforgettable.

Category 2A and 2B – Concierge 1-Bedroom Suite w/ Verandah (All Disney Cruise Ships)

Disney cruises offer a 1-Bedroom Suite with Verandah for those looking for a little extra space and privacy on their vacation. The suite sleeps up to 5 people and features a separate bedroom, two bathrooms, a living room, and a wet bar.  The main bathroom has double sinks, a rain-style shower, and a whirlpool tub. A large walk-in closet provides plenty of space for storing your belongings.

The main difference between Categories 2A and 2B is location. Magic and Wonder’s 2A suites have a slightly different layout with a longer verandah. Dream and Fantasy’s 2A suites are located between the two connecting Royal Suites and the ship’s front center. The 2A suites of the Disney Wish are located on deck 12 and have a deeper verandah than the 2B suites.

Recommendation:  This is an excellent option if you only need one bedroom but still want plenty of roominess and class.

Category 3A and 3B – Concierge Family Oceanview Stateroom w/ Verandah (Disney Dream, Fantasy, Magic, & Wonder)

The Concierge Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah on Disney cruises is a luxurious private room that sleeps up to five people. This room is complete with a private verandah with beautiful sea views and an abundance of warm woods and custom fabrics.

The stateroom features a queen-sized bed, a convertible sofa, a Pullman bunk bed, and a spacious bathroom with a shower, TV, and a safe. There are just over 300 square feet of living space. Additionally, families have concierge-level guests access to a private lounge and priority boarding.

Recommendation:   Concierge Family Oceanview Stateroom is excellent for families that want the luxury and perks of a Concierge-level stateroom but don’t need all the bells and whistles (and expense) of the Category 1 and 2 staterooms. 

Category 3B – Concierge Family Oceanview Stateroom (Disney Wish)

The Concierge Family Oceanview Stateroom on Disney Wish offers stunning sea views through floor-to-ceiling windows.

A king bed, a single convertible sofa, and an upper-berth single pull-down bed make up this room, which can accommodate up to five guests. There is also a wall pull-down bed in rooms that sleep five. The 357-square-foot room provides plenty of space for the whole family to relax.

Guests staying in a Concierge Family Oceanview Stateroom also have access to special concierge services, including priority boarding and seating at shows and restaurant reservations. If you’re looking for a truly magical experience, book a stay in one of these Little Mermaid-themed spaces.

Recommendation :  These are fun and family-oriented staterooms on Disney’s newest cruise ship. This is a good option if you want a Concierge-level room at a relatively affordable price.

Verandah (Balcony) Staterooms

DCL Disney Magic Verandah Stateroom

Verandah staterooms are Disney’s most spacious non-concierge accommodations, each with its own balcony outside the ship where you can enjoy the fresh air while watching the ocean go by.

Category four, five, six, and seven are verandah staterooms. Some rooms in this category offer partial views, but all provide a comfortable and relaxing space.

Category 4 – Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom w/ Verandah (All Disney Cruise Ships)

The Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah on Disney cruises is the largest stateroom on the ships that are not concierge suites. Roughly 300 sq ft, it sleeps up to 5 and is the only single-room option for a family of 5 on the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder. The Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah is also the most frequently booked option for families of 5 on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy .

All of these factors considered it’s no wonder that this room type is one of the most popular among families cruising with Disney.

Recommendation : The Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom is perfect for families of four or five who value roominess and want to enjoy the ocean breeze from the verandah . 

Category 5 – Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah (All Disney Cruise Ships)

The Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah on Disney cruises is a fantastic choice for your family cruise. With enough space to comfortably sleep 3-4 guests and an unobstructed verandah, this room type is perfect for enjoying the beautiful view.

Magic and Wonder’s cabins are 268 sq ft, while Dream, Fantasy, and Wish are 248 sq ft. The Deluxe Oceanview Staterooms with Verandah come with a queen bed, a sleeper sofa, and a pull-out berth (if sleeping four). This room type also features a sitting area, plenty of closet space, and a private verandah to enjoy the view without leaving your stateroom.

Recommendation :   Among the regular-sized verandah cabins, these are the most common and the most frequently booked for families with four or fewer members. They are an excellent choice!

DCL-Disney-Dream-Cat-5-Stateroom

Category 6 – Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah – Undersized, Obstructed View, or White Wall  (All Disney Cruise Ships)

Category 6 staterooms are located near the back of the ship’s upper deck. Accommodations are nearly identical to those found in Category 5 but have either an undersized, obstructed, or white wall verandah. Those who book a Category 6 cabin on the Magic and Wonder will have full white wall railings, while on the Dream and Fantasy, the white wall only extends halfway up the railing.

All of these staterooms sleep at least three, and many sleep 4.

Recommendation :  Because these rooms are nearly identical to Category 5 rooms, they are a terrific way to save money on your Disney cruise . We recommend the Dream and Fantasy 6B staterooms because of their stunning views, and Disney Magic and Wonder’s Category 6 staterooms on Deck 6 have more verandah space, as do 5650 and 5150.

Category 7 – Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Navigator’s Verandah (All Disney Cruise Ships)

Navigator verandahs on Disney Magic and Disney Wonder feature mostly enclosed balconies with a viewing window cut out. In contrast, Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, and Disney Wish have a minimally obstructed view from the verandah.

Recommendation:  The rooms in Category 7 are nearly identical to those in Category 5 and 6, so they are a good way to save on a Disney cruise if you don’t mind having a partial view. We believe these are the best values in the verandah category, particularly on the Dream, Fantasy, and Wish.

Feeling overwhelmed?  Working with an experienced Disney travel agent can calm the waters!  Contact the Disney Cruise experts at The Vacationeer !

Not only will they arrange every part of your cruise, but they’ll provide a generous onboard credit you can use towards purchases while you’re on the ship.  There’s never any obligation to book, and there’s no additional charge to use their planning services!

If it’s your first time cruising with Disney , working with The Vacationeer really is the best way to go!

Oceanview (Porthole) Staterooms

DCL-DIsney-Dream-Oceanview-Stateroom

The Oceanview category of staterooms (Category 8 and 9) features rooms with scenic vistas through genuine porthole windows. The Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom is perfect for families, while the Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom provides a more intimate setting.

Category 8 – Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom (Disney Dream, Fantasy, & Wish)

Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, and Disney Wish to offer a truly luxurious cruise experience with their Category 8 Deluxe Family Oceanview Staterooms.

These staterooms are much larger than the standard size (around 240 sq ft), sleeping between 3 and 5 people comfortably. In addition, they feature unique round tub-showers (see the video above for Category 4) and large portholes with seating, making them the perfect place to relax and take in the breathtaking views. The exceptions to this are the 8As, which are similar to suites with two large portholes and plenty of space. Families and groups can enjoy Category 8A even more since many have a divider between the bed and seating area. None of them will disappoint.

Recommendation :  Families looking for affordability and comfort will find the Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom is the right choice.

Category 9 – Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom (All Disney Cruise Ships)

The Category 9 Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom sleeps 3 or 4 people and is the same size as the category 10’s with a similar layout and features. The Disney Dream and Fantasy Rooms are 204 sq ft, 214 on Disney Magic and Wonder, and 218 sq ft on Disney Wish. Most rooms have a porthole on one of the walls. On the Magic and Wonder ships, the 9D staterooms on deck 1 have two small portholes instead of one large porthole.

A, B, C, and D designations represent Disney’s assessment of the location and view of the room. In Dream, Fantasy, and Wish, the 9C and 9D staterooms typically have obstructed views and are usually located in the front of the vessel.

Recommendation :  If you prefer to save money over having a porthole in your room, opt for Category 10. 

Inside Staterooms (Least Expensive Main Category)

DCL Disney Wish Inside Stateroom

The Inside category features Disney Cruise Line’s base accommodations, with no window (no exterior view) but still featuring a nautical motif. The Deluxe Inside Stateroom is slightly larger than the Standard Inside Stateroom and provides additional storage space and a sitting area.

Category 10 –Deluxe Inside Stateroom (Disney Dream, Fantasy, Magic, & Wonder)

Rooms in Category 10 are almost identical to those in Category 9, except for being unable to see the outside. These staterooms also have more square footage than those in Category 11.

The Disney Dream/Fantasy Deluxe Inside Staterooms are 204 sq ft, and the Disney Magic/Wonder rooms are 214 sq ft. They can accommodate 3 or 4 people.

Disney Wish does not have a Deluxe Inside category.

Virtual portholes on the Disney Dream and Fantasy ships allow passengers to see what is happening outside (along with a bit of Disney magic thrown in).

There are also a select few unnamed staterooms on the Magic/Wonder ships known in some circles as “secret porthole” staterooms — they actually have porthole windows but Disney decided not to classify them as oceanview rooms because lifeboats or other architectural elements obstruct the views.

Deluxe Inside Staterooms have a split bathroom, with one half having a sink and a shower, and the other half having a toilet and a sink. A, B, and C subcategories are assigned according to their locations, with A subcategories on upper decks or closer to midship, while C subcategories are on lower decks.

Recommendation : Deluxe Inside Cabins/Staterooms are an excellent option for couples or families of 3 or 4 on a budget. 

Category 11 – Standard Inside Stateroom (All Disney Cruise Ships)

Standard Inside Staterooms are typically the cheapest rooms available on Disney Cruise Line .

Standard Inside Staterooms sleep three, and some sleep four.  They’re smaller than other staterooms, but the amenities are the same. The Disney Magic and Wonder rooms are 184 square feet, while the Dream Fantasy and Wish rooms are 169 square feet.

There’s no split bathroom in a Standard Inside Stateroom. The Disney Dream and Fantasy ships feature a Magical Porthole with real-time views, but the other ships do not have exterior views.

Disney divides the rooms into categories A, B, and C based on attractiveness. Category 11A rooms are found on upper decks and near the ship’s middle, while 11B rooms are on lower decks.

Recommendation:  The Standard Inside Statement is a small and cheap option, so you shouldn’t expect too much from it. However, this DCL room offers more space than you would get on other (non-Disney) cruise ships of the same class. It allows couples and small families the opportunity to enjoy a Disney cruise at a reasonable price.

As always seems to be the case, the best option for you may not be the best option for another family.

Ask yourself the question: “what’s most important to me?”  Is it having a balcony? Is it experiencing concierge level service in a suite? Is it having additional beds for kids? Is it saving money and just making sure you’re onboard the ship?

Answering those questions, then reviewing deck plans, photos, reviews, and our guide/tips above will help you decide what’s best for you.

No matter your room type, you’re sure to have a magical experience aboard a Disney Cruise ship.

Thanks for reading our Best Staterooms on a Disney Cruise article.  Happy cruising (and don’t forget your passport)!

The Best Staterooms in Each of the 10 Categories on a Disney Cruise in 2022

There are a lot of stateroom choices on a  Disney Cruise !  You may think there should be three simple choices:  inside, oceanview, or verandah – but it’s nowhere near that cut and dry.  Each of those three stateroom types has several different classifications of staterooms!  Disney has thirty-one various categories of staterooms.

Beginning in 2022, some of the categories have new names, and some staterooms have been recategorized.  Disney is standardizing everything in anticipation of their third class of ships – the Triton Class, which kicks off in 2022 with the Disney Wish!  In fact, hopefully soon I will write another new blog post, with stateroom recommendations for the Wish!

disney cruise rooms for 6

A few of the same ground rules and guidelines first:

– I’m not going to recommend accessible staterooms.  If you need an accessible stateroom, there are options in almost every category.  If you don’t need one, pick something else.

– If you don’t need a connecting stateroom, try to avoid them.  I have stayed in a few different staterooms with a connecting door and we could hear the guests on the other side almost as if they were in our stateroom.

– While I will give some specific stateroom numbers in some cases, in other cases I’ll just give general guidance.  It’s always good planning to check a review of the particular stateroom you have in mind.  There are some staterooms out there that have noise or vibration issues.  There are also some right above the theaters or the nightclubs.  You probably want to avoid those.

– To find stateroom reviews, use Google or check a site like Disney Cruise Line Blog.  Scott Sanders has a  good list of reviews  going over there.  A quick search may save you some headaches on board!

– Finally, the staterooms on the  Dream  and  Fantasy  will be the same, so I will address those staterooms as the Dream Class.  Similarly, the  Magic  and  Wonder  have the same types of staterooms, so I will address them as the Magic Class.

With the recategorization, all categories are now broken down further with letters like A, B, C, D and E. The letters generally distinguish where on the ship the staterooms are located, with the letter A being the typically most desired location – mid-ship and/or on a higher deck.

1. Concierge Suites –

Category 1A – Concierge Royal Suite with Verandah (Formerly Category R) – Recognizing that a Royal Suite is out of reach for most mere mortals, I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge they are the best staterooms on the ship.  There is no room for debate, people.  Whether we are talking Dream or Magic Class, these are the best staterooms on the ship and there are no bad options in this category.  I’m a fan of starboard side for the Magic Class if I had to pick one.  The Royal Suites on the Magic Class sleep 7 and aren’t quite as open and airy as the Dream Class which sleep 5, but all are amazing.  For the Dream Class, the two suites are different.  The Roy O. Disney Suite (12502) is starboard, and the Walter E. Disney Suite (12002) is port side.  The living areas are almost identical, but the bedroom and bathroom layouts are different.  In the Roy, the bedroom is on the exterior of the suite, and the master bathroom is on the interior, so the bedroom has beautiful windows and light.  In the Walt, the master bathroom is on the exterior and gets all that beautiful light, while the bedroom is more interior.  There are benefits to both, and it’s really a personal preference.  I preferred the Walt, but certainly would not have been sad in either one!

Category 1B – Concierge 2-Bedroom Suite with Verandah (Formerly Category S) – There are only two 2-bedroom suites, and they are found only on the Magic Class.  The only difference between them is starboard (right) or port (left) side. I’d give a slight edge to the starboard side of the ship if you are sailing to Castaway Cay because I love those island views when docked for your day in paradise.

Category 2A or 2B –  1-Bedroom Suite (2A or 2B) with Verandah (Formerly Category T) – On the Dream Class, there is only one 2A, and it’s spectacular.  It’s stateroom 12000, and it’s located between the two Royal Suites forward on the ship.  This room has a huge verandah, and stunning views.  This room is often held back during the initial release to see if either of the Royal Suite occupants would like to add it on (it’s connected to both via a hallway of sorts), but it will pop into inventory regularly.  You (or your travel agent) just need to keep an eye out!  The 2Bs on the Dream Class are also amazing, and there are 6 with oversized verandahs.  They’re located on a bumpout of the ship and the verandahs are huge!  They are staterooms 12006, 12012, 12506, 12512, 11006, and 11002.  For the absolute best view of Castaway Cay, book 12512.  On the Dream Class, I also slightly prefer the concierge staterooms on deck 12, over deck 11, because they have easier access to the concierge lounge and sundeck.  On the Magic Class, I’d recommend the 2As.  These four staterooms have a slightly different layout which puts the twin pull-down bed in the living room instead of in the master bedroom like the 2Bs.  I greatly prefer the master bedroom to have its own closed-off space, especially when you’re putting children to bed early.

2. Category 3A – Concierge Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah (Formerly Category V) –Category 3A staterooms are essentially category 4 staterooms with concierge soft goods and concierge service.  On the Magic Class, I still prefer starboard side if visiting Castaway Cay.  On the Dream Class, I have the same starboard answer, while also recommending one of the staterooms on the bumpout.  Those are 12008, 12010, 12508, 12510, and 11004.  If you are traveling with the party in stateroom 12512, definitely book 12510 to open the verandah partition in between the two staterooms for a super-sized-amazing-Castaway-Cay-views-of-glory stateroom combination.  BTW, that is an official term.

3. Category 4 – Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah – Category 4 staterooms are the biggest non-concierge staterooms on the ships. The word “Family” in the title means the stateroom is slightly longer and sleeps up to five.  On the Dream Class, it also means they have a round bathtub instead of the standard rectangular one found in most staterooms.  4Es on the Dream Class are a notable exception to those rules.  4Es on the Dream Class only sleep four, and are the same size as category 5 staterooms, not the extended family size, nor do they have the round tubs.  They do, however, have GIANT verandahs.  For 2022, Disney reclassified most of the 5E staterooms as category 4E. That actually makes sense.  Those 5Es were just like the 4Es, they were just on the far aft (back) of the ship.  So now my favorite 4Es would be those that are located aft because of the great views.  Some of the rooms on the corners have even bigger verandahs!  4Es on the Magic Class follow the rules of the other 4s – the stateroom sleeps up to 5 and their verandahs are not giant.  Their verandahs do have a solid white metal wall instead of clear Plexiglas below the railing.  I’d avoid 4Es on the Magic Class for that reason, while I’d certainly do 4Es on the Dream Class for those ginormous verandahs.  Disney reclassified many category 4 rooms for 2022, eliminating 4D, recategorizing some of those as 4C, and some 4Cs became 4Bs.

4. Category 5 – Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah – Category 5 is my go-to stateroom. They are all standard-size staterooms with unobstructed verandahs. Disney reclassified several of them, recategorizing most 5Es to 4Es as discussed above, and eliminating 5Ds.  Some 5Ds are now 5Cs, some 5Cs are now 5Bs.  I avoid deck 10 on the Dream Class as a general rule (there are some pool deck noise issues in some rooms on deck 10), but otherwise I like all of the category 5s!

5. Category 6 – Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah (Undersized, Obstructed View, or White Wall) – Category 6 staterooms are like category 5 staterooms, but they all have either an undersized, obstructed, or white wall verandah. Some of these differences are minor, so if you want to save a little from a category 5, category 6 may be for you. On the Dream Class, some of the 6Bs are on the aft of the ship, so those would be my choice because of the great views!  Category 6 staterooms on deck six have slightly larger verandahs on Magic Class, so I’d recommend those!  5650 and 5150 also have giant verandahs on the Magic Class!

disney cruise rooms for 6

6. Category 7 – Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Navigator’s Verandah – There is a significant difference between the Dream and Magic Class category 7s. A Navigator’s verandah on the Magic Class is a mostly enclosed verandah, with a large circular or oval window-type opening cut out for viewing purposes. On the Dream Class, it’s just a slightly obstructed view from the verandah.  These are slightly more obstructed than the category 6s, thus the category 7 designation.  There are two on the aft (5188 and 5688) that have small verandahs, but great views!  On the Magic Class, there are four that are not fully enclosed.  I’d pick one of those!  They are staterooms 6134, 6634, 7120, and 7620.

7. Category 8 – Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom – Starting with category 8s, these staterooms no longer have a verandah. There are no category 8s on the Magic Class, only the Dream Class.  Once again, the word “Family” means they are bigger staterooms that sleep up to 5 and have round tubs. They also have very large portholes with seating!  The exceptions are 8As.  And what an exception they are!  8As are almost like suites with two large portholes with lots of space, and many have a divider of some kind between the bed and seating area.  I’d wholeheartedly recommend any of the 8As!  Not all have bathtubs, and some are more divided than others, so do your research before picking which one works for you.  Disney recategorized the 8Ds for 2022, and now 8Ds are 8Cs, while 8Cs are 8Bs.

8. Category 9 – Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom – Category 9s are your standard oceanview staterooms. Read – no verandahs.  On the Magic Class, I’d recommend avoiding deck 1 if staying in a category 9.  Deck 1 is a short deck with no access to the aft elevators.  The oceanview staterooms on deck 1 also have two small portholes instead of one larger porthole which greatly limits your view in my opinion.  The 9C staterooms that are all the way forward, like 2504 or 2510, also have a little bit more space due to the curvature of the ship!  On the Dream Class, we loved the 9Bs on deck 2 outside  Enchanted Garden .  It was an incredibly convenient location.  The Dream Class also has some large corner staterooms that are 9Ds.  They are 7006, 7504, 8006, and 8504.  You may also like the 9Cs and 9Ds that are forward with views of where the ship is headed.  The portholes are slanted with slightly obstructed views, but neat views all the same.

disney cruise rooms for 6

9. Category 10 – Deluxe Inside Stateroom – Category 10 inside staterooms are basically the same size and setup as category 9s, but they have no outside views. On the Dream Class, however, they do have virtual portholes, which gives a view (via camera) of what is happening outside (with some occasional Disney magic thrown in). The Magic Class has its own exciting unnamed category here – secret porthole staterooms!  That’s right, some of these inside staterooms actually have a window!  Disney did not classify them as oceanview staterooms because those window views are obstructed, some more than others.  If you want some natural light for the price of an inside stateroom, these are the staterooms for you.  Book 5020, 5022, 5024, 5520, 5522, or 5524 on the Magic Class.  Warning, these staterooms are more popular than a Dole Whip on sweltering day in Orlando, so book early!

10. Category 11 – Standard Inside Stateroom – Category 11 inside staterooms no longer carry the word “Deluxe” in the description and that’s mostly due to the bathroom. There are no split bathrooms in category 11 staterooms.  Split bathrooms are the standard in all the other categories, and they come with one bathroom with a toilet and sink, and one with a bathtub and sink.  While I highly recommend the split bath for families, there are some people who prefer having one larger bathroom as opposed to two smaller ones.  Additionally, on the Magic Class ships, there are some 11Bs with a “sideways” layout.  These staterooms are somewhat popular and feel a little roomier than the regular inside stateroom layouts.  Book one of those 18 staterooms for a unique experience.

That’s my breakdown!  Did I forget any that you can think of?  Do you have questions about any particular staterooms?  Just ask!

How To Choose A Disney Cruise Stateroom

Sharing is caring!

howtochooseadisneycruisesteroom

How do you choose a Disney cruise stateroom? If you are new to cruising it can seem overwhelming at first when you are faced with the decision of which stateroom to choose.

Our guide to Disney cruise staterooms will help you to understand your choices and make the best decision for you and your family.

The first thing to realize is that whichever Disney Cruise stateroom you choose (with the exception of concierge) you will still have the same experience on the Disney ship as everyone else.

The same access to entertainment, dining, kids clubs, and all the other magical things about a Disney cruise.

However, the price you pay can be very different depending on which Disney cruise stateroom you choose. It is really important to realize this point.

If you are fine with a Disney inside stateroom, you will still have the same experience on the Disney ship itself, as those who have paid a lot more for a verandah.

The good news is that Disney cruise lines have some of the largest and best-designed staterooms in the industry. They are up to 25% larger than average cruise line cabins.

Disney cruise staterooms really are among the nicest and the best designed sailing the seas.

You may also have heard about the ‘split’ bathroom. Most of the staterooms on Disney cruises have a bath, sink, and shower which is in a separate room from the toilet and sink. This is a great concept for families sharing.

The design of the Disney cruise staterooms is a nice mix of comfort, practicality and of course, some very special Disney touches.

What Disney Cruise Staterooms Are Available?

There Disney Wonder and Disney Magic have the same basic design, as do the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.

The classic ships of the Wonder and the Magic have 877 staterooms and a maximum capacity of 2456 passengers.

The newer Disney Dream and Fantasy have 1250 staterooms and a maximum capacity of 3500 passengers.

There are some differences between the two types of ships, so we will describe each in turn with the Disney Magic and Wonder first.

Scroll down if you need to only see information relating to the newer ships the Disney Fantasy and the Disney Dream. You can also see our comprehensive guide at Disney Fantasy Stateroom Choices

Inside Staterooms On The Disney Wonder and Disney Magic

Generally speaking, prices are the lowest for inside staterooms and these make them a good budget choice.

You will still have the same overall Disney cruise experience – you will just probably want to spend less time in your stateroom than those with a verandah.

We think that this has benefits as you will spend more time using the amenities and fabulous areas on the ship.

There are 2 types of Interior Stateroom on the Wonder and Magic:

Interior Stateroom Category 11A, 11B and 11C

These sleep up to 4 and are 184 square feet. There are 160 of these Disney Cruise Staterooms available.

Wondering what the A, B, and C mean? These relate to the location on board ship – we will talk about this more later.

All of the inside and outside staterooms sleep either 3 or 4 people maximum. There is a Queen bed and a sofa bed in all staterooms.

Some also have a pull-down bed above the sofa so they can sleep 4.

These are the only staterooms which do not have the split bathroom. We have stayed in this category and found it fine as a great choice when you are on a budget.

Everything is well designed, but it is compact.

If you think you are going to spend a lot of time in your stateroom this honestly is probably not a great choice.

However, if this is the only one that fits into your budget then our opinion is go ahead and book.

You still get to enjoy everything everyone else does on the ship – you just don’t pay as much!

Deluxe Interior Stateroom Category 10A, 10B and 10C on Disney Wonder and Magic

These are larger inside staterooms at 214 square feet. They do have the split bathroom so the toilet is separate from the bath and shower room.

There are 96 Deluxe Inside Staterooms available.

Join my Disney Cruise Group for Tips and Free Giveaways!

Oceanview Staterooms on Disney Magic and Disney Wonder Category 9A, 9B, 9C and 9D

These are the same square footage at 214 as the Deluxe Interior Staterooms. The difference is they have a window or porthole.

Navigator Verandah Staterooms on Disney Wonder and Disney Magic Category 7A

These are very popular staterooms and are usually the first to be completely booked. This is a design unique to the Disney cruise line as it is a mix of Outside and Verandah staterooms.

The stateroom is 214 square feet and the same design as the Oceanview cabin. The difference is an enclosed balcony of 54 square feet. There is a separate sitting area that looks a lot like a balcony but it not open to the outside.

The Navigator Verandah Staterooms sleep up to 3 guests.

They are not available on the Disney Fantasy or Disney Dream.

Deluxe Verandah Staterooms on Disney Wonder and Magic Category 5A,5B,5C and 6A

These are the same design as the Oceanview and are 214 square feet, with the addition of a verandah of 54 square feet. These sleep up to 4 guests.

This is the ideal choice of many Disney cruise guests as it offers the balcony.

Disney Deluxe Family Stateroom With Verandah

These are a cruise rarity – a stateroom that sleeps 5. For most cruise lines you have to book a suite to have room for 5 but on Disney, these Verandah staterooms are great for larger families.

These Disney cruise staterooms are 250 square feet with a verandah of 54 square feet.

There is a Queen bed, sleeper sofa, and drop down above, with an additional drop-down bed that goes in front of the verandah door.

We have stayed in these staterooms multiple times and they offer great space for families of up to 5.

All of the Deluxe Family Staterooms with Verandah are on Deck 8 of the Disney Magic and Wonder and there are 80 available.

Inside Staterooms On Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy

disneyfantasyinsidestateroom

Again there are 2 different types of inside stateroom on the new ships. The great innovation on these newer ships is the Virtual Porthole in all of the inside staterooms.

The Virtual Porthole is a video screen that projects images of the outside of the ship. And if you watch carefully you may well see some Disney characters swim across the screen.

These staterooms are very popular, and often sell out more quickly than the Outside Categories.

Interior Stateroom Disney Dream and Fantasy Category 11A, 11B and 11C

These are 169 square feet and do not have the split bathroom. They have a Queen bed and sleeper sofa. Some also have the drop-down bed above the sleeper.

There are 131 interior staterooms available on Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream.

Deluxe Interior Staterooms on Disney Dream and Fantasy Category 10A

These are 204 square feet and sleep either 3 or 4. There are 19 staterooms so this Category tends to sell out quickly. These do have the split bathroom.

Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom on Disney Fantasy and Dream Category 9A,9B,9C and 9D

disneyoceanviewstateroom

These Disney cruise staterooms are 204 square feet and have one or two small portholes. They sleep up to 4 guest and there are 91 available.

Family Oceanview Stateroom On Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream Category 8A,8B,8C and 8D

These Family Oceanview Staterooms sleep up to 5 guests and are 241 square feet. They have a Queen bed, sleeper sofa with drop-down bunk bed above, and an additional pull-down bed near the window.

These Oceanview staterooms have a large porthole window which can be used as a window seat.

There are 108 staterooms.

Deluxe Verandah Stateroom on Disney Fantasy and Dream Category 5A,5B,5C,5D,5E,6A,6B and 7A

These are the most plentiful staterooms with 499 to choose from onboard the Fantasy and Dream. They sleep up to 4 and have 203 square feet of living space and a balcony verandah of 43 square feet.

They have a Queen bed and sleeper sofa with some also having the drop-down bunk.

Family Verandah Stateroom On Disney Fantasy and Dream Category 4A,4B,4C,4D and 4E

disneycruiseverandahstateroom

These are 256 square feet of living space and a verandah of 43 square feet. There are 362 staterooms to choose from. They sleep up to 5 and all have a Queen bed, sleeper sofa with bunk above, and a drop-down bed near the verandah.

Concierge Staterooms On Disney Cruise Line

There are distinct differences between the classic ships the Magic and the Wonder and the newer ships the Fantasy and Dream.

The newer ships were designed to have more benefits for concierge guests than on the Wonder and Dream.

Both the Fantasy and the Dream have a concierge lounge and private deck.

The Disney Magic and Wonder do now how a concierge lounge which is converted from a former adults-only lounge.

Here are the extra benefits for Concierge Guests:

Early Embarkation . Concierge Guests are the first to board the ship. Also depending upon the cruise port of departure there may be a special Concierge waiting area or lounge in the port. Not much of a benefit except you will be assured you will actually get a chair!

Concierge Lounge This is a nice benefit on all Disney ships.

The Lounge on the Fantasy and Dream is open from 7 am to 10 pm and is always staffed by a concierge who will help you with anything you need.

There are snacks in the lounge as well – as if you don’t have enough eating options already. Alcoholic drinks are served and are complimentary at certain times. 

Concierge Guests Can Book Onboard Activities and Port Adventures Early

This can be a huge benefit for some activities which book quickly such as the cabanas on Castaway Cay. Really your only chance of getting these is if you are a concierge guest as they are in extremely high demand.

Priority Tender Boarding

This is a very nice perk with tender ports as concierge guests can have priority getting to shore on the tender boats.

The Concierge Sundeck is a very nice private area for concierge guests. It tends to be really quiet and there is never a problem getting a lounge chair.

Concierge Dining Choices are available so that you can have your meals served in your stateroom (except Category V on the new ships).

Disney Wonder and Magic Concierge Staterooms

The smallest Concierge staterooms on the Wonder and Magic are the Concierge Family Oceanview Staterooms with Verandah . They are 304 square feet and sleep up to 5 guests.

They are all on Deck 8 and are identical in size and configuration to the Family Oceanview Staterooms with Verandah which can be found on the same deck.

They have upgraded bedding and amenities. They were upgraded when the Concierge Lounges were added to the Classic Ships.

There are One Bedroom Suites that sleep up to 5 guests in 614 square feet of space. there are 18 of these on the Wonder and Magic.

Also available on the classic ships are Two Bedroom Staterooms with 945 square feet of space and sleeping up to 7 guests.

For the ultimate in luxury and space, guests can enjoy the Walt Disney or the Roy Disney Royal Suites . At 1029 square feet you have enough room for 7 guests.

Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream Concierge Staterooms

There are more concierge staterooms available on the new Fantasy and Dream than there are on the classic ships.

Disney realized the high demand and designed the new ships to accommodate more guests in concierge with better facilities.

Concierge Family Verandah Stateroom Disney Fantasy and Dream Category V

There are 20 Concierge Family Verandah Staterooms to choose from and each are 263 square feet with a 43 square foot balcony.

The basic design is the same as the Family Verandah Staterooms but with upgraded furnishings and bedding and of course access to concierge facilities.

These staterooms sleep up to 5.

Concierge One Bedroom Suite Stateroom on Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream Category T

Concierge Suite

There are 19 One Bedroom Suite Staterooms with 536 square feet of space and 86 square foot verandah.

There is a Queen size bed in the bedroom and a double sofa bed in the living area. There is also a single pull down wall bed in the living area.

The living area has a dining table and you can order from the dining room menus.

Concierge Royal Suite Stateroom on Disney Dream and Fantasy Category R

These are the most luxurious suites on the Disney ships and there are only 2 of them. They usually book on day one when booking opens.

The Suites sleep up to 5 guests in 898 square feet of space with an additional 883 square feet of the wrap-around curved verandah.

There is a master bedroom with a Queen bed. There is a pull-down wall double sofa bed and a pull-down single bed in the living area.

If you want the ultimate in luxury and have no budget considerations then this is the one for you!

Which Deck Is The Best on the Disney Fantasy and Dream?

This is a question which people spend a lot of time over but really it isn’t that big of a deal. The lower the deck the cheaper the price is the usual idea.

There can be hundreds of dollars difference between the same design stateroom if one is on a higher deck.

We have sailed on many of the decks and decided it really does not make any difference to your enjoyment of your cruise.

The advantage of the lower decks is they are nearer to restaurants, shopping, and the theatre.

The higher decks are closer to the pools, the spa and the adult areas – and of course the buffet.

The general idea of cruise ships is that the lower, midship rooms are more stable so if you think seasickness may be an issue .

But we have sailed on rough seas on the Disney Wonder on Deck 8 and really not been affected at all. This just depends on your personal preference.

Another consideration is what is above your stateroom. In our opinion, this doesn’t matter that much on the Disney ships.

We have sailed on Deck 8 of the Disney Wonder many times and it is true that you can hear some activity, sometimes, on the pool deck above.

But we have never found it loud enough to be a problem.

Do You Really Need A Balcony Stateroom?

The simple fact is that balcony staterooms cost more than inside or outside ones. The difference can be quite considerable.

If you can afford it then definitely choose the verandah stateroom.

It is nice to sit outside on your own balcony overlooking the ocean or getting excited about your port arrival. On cruises to Alaska, Europe and The Panama Canal a balcony is particularly nice.

But if the choice is a balcony cabin or waiting to book the Disney cruise because you need to save up more, then I would choose an inside stateroom and go on a cruise!

Where Are The Disney Cruise Staterooms To Avoid?

This is always a big question for anyone going on a Disney cruise. If you start to research this there are a lot of opinions about things to avoid.

Most people say to avoid staterooms under the pool deck – but our experience on Disney ships is that this really isn’t good advice.

We have stayed many times on Deck 8 of the classic ships and have experienced only very occasional noise from the pool deck above.

If you are still concerned about this then avoid the lowest decks because of possible noise from the anchor when arriving at tender ports (so likely to happen only once on your cruise) or engine noise.

We have never experienced this but have read many reviews and some guests do seem to experience it.

Really there aren’t any bad staterooms. One of our most enjoyable Disney cruises was when staying on Deck 2 in one of the least cost staterooms available.

We heard no noise, felt no motion, and had a great time.

What About Single Travelers On A Disney Cruise?

There are certainly many people who travel on Disney cruises as singles. Unfortunately, they will pay as much for a stateroom as 2 guests though – Disney does not give a price concession to singles.

There are sometimes singles lunch events on Sea Days but Disney is not concentrating on the single market.

We would love to see more encouragement of single cruisers but for the moment we guess that Disney really doesn’t need to pursue this market.

Which is your favorite Disney cruise stateroom? We would love to hear from you, so just leave us a comment!

Disney Insider Tips

Types of Disney Cruise Rooms

By: Author Kristi

Types of Disney Cruise Line Rooms

When you begin planning your Disney Cruise, besides choosing the date & destination of your cruise, you will need to decide on a Disney Cruise Stateroom. There are four different categories of Disney Cruise rooms (and 10 types of Staterooms) to choose from.

For first-time cruisers , it can be hard to understand the differences in the rooms.

You will want to make sure you are aware of the differences in each type so that you make sure you have enough space for those you are traveling with.

Types of Disney Cruise Line Rooms

While all Disney Cruise rooms are a bit different based on category & type, you will be able to find that they do have many things in common.

Interior Room on Disney magic

Interior Stateroom (Disney Cruise Room for 4)

This means that you will have no view of the ocean.

It is the smallest & most affordable of the Disney Cruise rooms.

Standard interior rooms do not have the split bathrooms that exterior staterooms have.

Magic Port Hole on Disney Dream & Fantasy

Interior staterooms on the Disney Dream , Fantasy and Wish have a virtual porthole which is really cool!

One of the benefits (besides price) is that interior rooms usually do not have as much sway as other rooms because of where they are located on the ship.

Another perk is that no light to wake you in the morning, so you can sleep in as long as you would like without having any natural sunlight letting you know it is morning.

Disney Dream Room with a View

Oceanview Stateroom (Disney Cruise Room for 4)

With this type of stateroom, you will have a view of the ocean, but the window will not open.

There is usually a window seat area so that you can sit & enjoy the view. There are curtains for you to close when you need to have less light or need to get some sleep.

If you tend to get seasick, having a view of the water may help curtail the symptoms as it is said to help your brain deal with balancing the equilibrium.

Veranda Room on Disney Wonder

Verandah Stateroom (Disney Cruise Room for 4)

Not only will you have a view of the ocean, you will get a small seating area outside of the stateroom.  

We always like this room because of the “extra” outdoor square footage.

Each room has a door that can be propped open to let in fresh air.

Another perk to having a veranda room is that you can place your wet swimwear out to dry.

Family Deluxe Verandah Stateroom (Disney Cruise Room for 5)

These rooms are a bit larger and give you extra seating!

 If you choose this room, you will find that it not only features a couch (that turns into a bed), but also has a chair. The extra seating is a nice addition.

Concierge Stateroom on Disney Dream

Concierge Stateroom (Disney Cruise Room for 6 or 7)

Talk about luxury. These fancy Disney Cruise line staterooms have a separate bedroom area, and private balcony with their own private lounge area that is packed with cold water and snacks.

This extra space is great for big families who aren’t easily confined to one small room.

The private lounge gives you a quiet space to get away (without having to be far from your own stateroom).

Inside your desk on Disney Cruise

What You’ll Find in ALL Disney Cruise Staterooms:

  • Split bathrooms (in most staterooms) and privacy curtains between bed & bunks
  • Throw Blanket
  • FREE toiletries (soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash & lotion)
  • Post Cards & Notepaper
  • A refrigerator
  • A hairdryer
  • Housekeeping services twice a day (morning; typically before lunch & evening turndown service)

*When trying to determine which Disney Cruise fits in your budget, you may find that there is only a small price difference between the inside cabins and those with a balcony on the Disney Dream, Fantasy & Wish ships while a much larger price difference between that on the Magic & Wonder regardless of number of nights or destination.

This is because there are far fewer balcony rooms on the Magic and Wonder, causing them to be more expensive.

Types of Disney Cruise Cabins Overview

disney-wish-stateroom

Choosing the  D isney Cruise best rooms that are the best fit for your family can make or break your time at sea. There is nothing worse for a vacation than having a room too small to enjoy and make feel like your own. Especially if it’s a multi-day cruise! On the Disney Cruise Line , guests have a choice of 4 major room categories to choose from. All of these come in different sizes, sleep a different amount of guests, and have designated floors you’ll stay on. While all D isney Cruise Line staterooms  are designed for comfort, some are more comfortable than others and may be worth the extra expense. Before we dive into the best Disney Cruise rooms, let’s go over some basic knowledge that you’ll need to start planning your perfect Disney Cruise cabin.

What is a Disney Cruise Stateroom?

  • The D isney Cruise Line staterooms  will be the rooms you sleep in on board the ship. They are also referred to as cabins or rooms. But for most of the planning process and time on the ship, you will know it as a stateroom. So no matter what stateroom category you choose, your Disney Cruise Line staterooms are your home away from home while on the ship. 

What is the Best Level to Stay on a Disney Cruise?

  • No matter if it’s the  best deck on Disney Wish , or any other deck on a ship in the DCL fleet, the best deck to stay on is two decks below any of the restaurants. This is typically decks 8 and 9 on most of the ships. This is typically because the restaurants that are open for breakfast start setting up before the sun rises and you can hear chairs and tables slamming on the floor, or rather your ceiling. But staying on decks 8 and 9 offers easy access to upper decks where pools and recreation are. While also just a quick trip away from lower deck theaters and the main atrium.

Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Navigator’s Verandah

disney-wish-navigator-verandah-stateroom

Important to Know : The least expensive D isney Cruise room with a balcony , the Navigator’s Verandah is a smaller and more enclosed private verandah for you to enjoy.

It also adds a sense of security since the only open space is the round port hole. My favorite aspect of this room is that it is less expensive and also has less wind making it easier to enjoy a meal on the balcony.

On Disney Dream and Fantasy, these rooms also have “Magic Portholes”. These are LED screens in the shape of a circle showing the “ocean” outside.

Standard Inside Stateroom

disney-wish-standard-inside-room

Size : 169 – 184 sq. ft.

Important to Know : The smallest of all staterooms, the Standard Inside Staterooms are the best  D isney Cruise rooms  to stay in if you’re cruising on a budget. Although small, it is the perfect size for someone sailing by themselves or with one other person. Personally, even though it technically can sleep up to 4 guests, I wouldn’t recommend this room for anyone traveling with more than 2 people total. The space, while designed usefully, is small and can feel very cramped when getting ready for dinners or other events your sailing might have.

Best Disney Cruise Rooms FAQ

f-a-q

Q: Which is the Best Deck to stay on a Disney Wish Cruise Ship?

A: If you’re not staying in a Concierge-level stateroom, the best deck to stay on Disney Wish  is deck 9. On this deck, you will be only 2 decks below the main dining areas and pools. You could stay on deck 10 which is directly below the main amenity deck 11. But book your room with caution! If you stay directly under high-traffic areas, there is a chance you can hear people running around or the Crew Members preparing the restaurants at odd hours. 

Q: Which side of the Disney Cruise Ship to stay on?

A: This is up to you! There is no “bad side” of a Disney ship nor does it change the price you pay. The biggest difference in what side of the ship you stay on is what view you want to have while docked at ports of call. If you want the potential to see beaches and other ships, I recommend booking a room on the starboard (right) side of the ship. But if you’d like to be able to watch people running to the ship at the very last minute, a room on the port (left) side will be best for you.

Q: What is the Best Part of the Ship to stay on Disney Wish?

A: For all cruisers, but especially if it’s your first time sailing or you are prone to seasickness, the best location on Disney Cruise ship is to stay in mid or the middle of the ship. This is where you will feel less of the ship’s movement and more stability as you sail to your destinations. However, I have stayed in both the Mid and Aft (back) of the ship and had a better experience in the back!

Q: What is the most Luxurious Stateroom in Disney  Cruise Ship?

A: By far the most luxurious stateroom on a Disney ship is the Tower Suite on the Disney Wish and soon-to-sail Disney Treasure. This stateroom is a first of its kind and is a full two-deck room in the ship’s forward tunnel. On the Disney Wish, the room is themed to the animated film Moana . While on the soon-to-sail Disney Treasure, it is going to be EPCOT-themed! This will mark the first room themed after one of the Disney Theme Parks! We can’t wait to see this new ship and all it has to offer so make sure to check back for more updates!

Disney Cruise Line Stateroom Categories Explained

IMG 1692 scaled

Front, back, top, bottom, left, right, somewhere in the middle? There are so many choices when choosing your stateroom (like a hotel room, but on water) on a Disney Cruise. No worries though, I explain all of the various categories and help you choose the best stateroom for your family’s magical vacation!

As of right now, there are 4 Disney ships in their fleet. The Dream and Fantasy are sister ships with the same layout and the Magic and Wonder are sister ships with the same layout. When selecting a cruise itinerary, you want to make sure you know which ship you will be sailing on because the stateroom categories are different.

There are 2 main things you have to consider when choosing a stateroom: what type of stateroom do you want (floor plan) and where on the ship do you want to be (category). The Dream and Fantasy have 9 floor plans and 28 room categories. The Magic & Wonder have 10 floor plans and 22 room categories. That’s a lot! I have broken it down into 4 easy steps to pick your perfect stateroom!

Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy Deck Plans

DCL Dream & Fantasy Deck Plans

Disney Magic and Disney Wonder Deck Plans

DCL Magic & Wonder deck plans

4 steps to choosing your stateroom:

Determine how many people are in your party. This decides what type of room you need. When you go online to look at availability, select the total number of adults and children (with their ages) the rooms will be filtered down to the ones that will fit your party size.

Dream & Fantasy: If you have 1, 2, 3, or 4 people in your party you have free access to all rooms and categories on the ship. If you have 5 people, you can choose from 5 floor plans on the ships. If you have more than 5 on the Dream & Fantasy you will need 2 staterooms.

Magic & Wonder: If you have 1, 2 or 3 people in your party you can choose between all room floor plans and categories on the ships. If you have 4 people you can choose from 9 floor plans. 5 people, you can choose between 5 floor plans and there are 2 floor plans that can sleep up to 7!

Choose 1 of 4 floor plans. Do you want a room with a view?

1.     Inside: no windows (however, the Fantasy and Dream have Magical Portholes; a LED TV screen over the bed with real-time views of outside)

DCL Magical Porthole

2.     Oceanview: Dream & Fantasy: 1 or 2 large portholes, Magic & Wonder: 1 large porthole or 2 smaller portholes

3.     Verandah: There are 3 types of verandahs (balconies):

  •  The  standard verandah  features an open-air balcony skirted by an acrylic wall, allowing for a full view of the horizon even while seated.
  • The  whitewall verandah  offers open-air lounging with a solid wall from the deck to the railing. Most of these staterooms are located in the back (aft) portion of the ship.
  • The  navigator’s verandah  is enclosed for greater privacy while still affording a stunning view and sea breezes through a large, open-air porthole above the railing.
  • Verandahs differ by size and style depending on the ship and stateroom type, and the view on some verandahs may be obstructed.
  • On connecting verandah staterooms, the partitions can be opened to create an even more spacious balcony.

Where on the ship do you want to be? Forward (front), midship, or aft (back)

DCL Ship locations

Do you get seasick? There are different theories to this, but generally, if you get sea sick you will want a stateroom with a verandah so you can breathe in fresh air or a room with a porthole. Focusing on the line where the sky meets the sea can help alleviate nausea. Also, having a stateroom in the middle of the ship helps with the rocking feeling.

Are you on a budget? The higher the deck the more expensive the stateroom is. Also, the closer you are to mid ship the more expensive the room is. You will also pay more to see the ocean. Inside staterooms with no windows on a lower deck either near the front (forward) or back (aft) are the least expensive.

Pick your room

DCL Pick your stateroom

In this step, you actually get to choose your specific room number. You can also select staterooms that adjoin if you are going with another stateroom. If the room connects, you will see an arrow next to the room number. The direction the arrow is going in is the room it connects to. You can still select one of these rooms even if you are not traveling with another party, you just don’t want to unlock the door 🙂

Do you want to be next to the elevators? The elevators midship are generally busier and therefore are louder, but on the other hand, you also have close access to the stairwell & elevators to get to other decks quickly.

When you have made your selection, you will be given a category #. For example, it will look like this: (Category 04E).

You’re done, celebrate!

But what does that number and letter mean?

If you want to dig in deeper to the room categories and find out what the number and letter means, you can keep on reading. I am giving you fair warning, there is a lot of information below.  For planning purposes, my suggestion is to print out the list below and make notes or cross off which ones do not fit your needs.

What it's really like in a $642-a-night inside stateroom on the smallest Disney Cruise

  • My family of avid cruise-goers booked the cheapest inside stateroom on the Disney Magic .
  • We were upgraded from a standard to a deluxe room at no cost, but we still didn't have any windows.
  • We've always booked balcony or veranda rooms but will book inside rooms going forward to save.

Insider Today

On our last three-day cruise aboard the Disney Magic , my family of four booked a standard inside stateroom for $2,570 (or $642 a night).

We got a complimentary upgrade to a deluxe inside stateroom, and the base cost included food and activities, including a day at Disney's private island, Castaway Cay.

Here's a look inside our room. 

We booked one of the cheaper staterooms on the Disney Magic

Inside staterooms have no windows and usually share three walls with other rooms. 

I've been on a total of nine cruises, and this most recent jaunt on the Disney Magic was only the second time I've booked an inside stateroom. This was also our fifth cruise with our kids, and it was the first time they'd stayed in a stateroom without a balcony.

My dad, who's also an avid cruise-goer, told me he has never splurged on a balcony stateroom, so I decided to see if he was onto something. Spoiler: He is.

We decided to go as cheap as we could with this trip and booked the least expensive stateroom that would sleep four.

Related stories

A few days before the cruise, we were automatically upgraded from a standard inside stateroom to a deluxe inside stateroom. We didn't request it, but we appreciated the extra 30 square feet of space.

For a three-night cruise, the price difference between the bookings is about $47 in total.

The most notable upgrade was the bathroom. A standard inside stateroom has a single bathroom with a sink, toilet, and shower. A deluxe inside stateroom has a split bathroom with a separate area for one sink and the toilet.

The second area is handy if someone needs to use the toilet while someone else is showering or getting ready.

Our quarters were tight, but there was enough room for 4 people 

Cruise-ship staterooms are smaller than a typical hotel room, so even if you book a more expensive option, you don't get tons of space.

The stateroom attendant converted our couch to bunk beds for our kids each night as part of the nightly turndown services.  

Our room had a curtain that separated the queen bed from the couch area. It didn't provide much privacy, but my kids wanted the bathroom light on, so the curtains helped block that from our bed.

Other amenities included a 22-inch TV and a mini-fridge.

The storage space was sufficient.

We had a closet, a set of drawers, a dresser with cubbies, and a desk with some drawer space. There were also drawers on either side of the bed and storage underneath the bench.

There's enough space under the queen bed to stow your suitcases.

We're pretty light packers and had three small bags and one slightly larger bag, but if you have more, you might find storage space more challenging.

There's not a ton of counter space in the bathroom, but it was adequate. I have the most toiletries out of anyone in our family, so I didn't have to compete for counter space. But I was glad I brought travel-sized products .

The bathroom was also stocked with hand soap, body lotion, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash.

The only parts of the stateroom that felt really tight were the side of the queen bed closest to the wall and the space between the bed and dresser.

And other than being a good spot for our breakfast tray, I thought the coffee table was a waste of space.

We've always booked balcony or veranda rooms but will likely continue booking inside rooms on future cruises

A travel agent once told us we absolutely had to book an ocean-view stateroom. It didn't take much to convince us to splurge on sea breezes and a private balcony, but we spent almost no time in the room during the cruise.

We crunched the numbers and realized we could save almost $1,000 on a three-night cruise by booking an inside stateroom. 

I expected to feel cramped and miss natural light, but I liked the darkness and got some of the best sleep I've had in a while. Plus, my kids didn't comment once on the lack of veranda.

I'm not saying I'll never book another veranda room again, but I can easily see booking inside staterooms on future cruises. Our overall experience was just as good, and I enjoyed the savings.

14 Secret Code Words You Might Want to Know

By jane alexander | apr 1, 2024.

On a cruise ship, the name ‘Oscar’ has a very serious meaning.

Some words , when used in specific situations, have deeper meanings than you realize: Whether they’re said over a PA or in a one-on-one conversation, these seemingly innocuous terms are actually codes to alert those in the know that something is up while keeping others in the dark. Here are 14 examples of secret code words that you might hear while traveling, going on vacation, or in your everyday life.

George // Planes

Red parties, oscar, and echo echo echo // cruise ships, inspector sands // london underground, nora // malls and convention centers, white envelope and package for sandy // uk supermarkets, code green // hospitals, angela and angel shot // bars, treasured guest, protein spill, and white powder alert  // disney parks.

Pilot in cockpit speaking on radio

You might hear the expression George is flying the plane now after a certain amount of time has passed during a flight. George doesn’t refer to a person, but to the plane’s autopilot system. “George” is also deployed after a flight spends 10 hours in the air, as FAA regulations state that pilots have to rest after that length of time.

Like other modes of transportation, cruise ships have their own internal codes that are sometimes used in public announcements. The exact terms vary by company, but they might use colors— red parties refers to a fire, for example—or names (on some ships, the name Oscar , which comes from a flag of the same name , is repeated three times to alert staff that a person has gone overboard). Others are more specific to the world of ships: In nautical parlance, echo refers to changing a ship’s course to starboard; on cruise ships, Echo Echo Echo lets staff know that the ship is drifting off course and may be in danger of colliding with another vessel.

London Underground Strike

If you ever hear a public announcement on the London Underground that requests the presence of Inspector Sands, they’re not asking for someone with that name—the term is used to let staff know that a fire alarm has gone off. If they don’t check the alarm within two minutes, the station will be evacuated .

When necessary, staffers at malls and convention centers will use the building’s public announcement system to let other workers know about a crisis. Nora , an acronym that stands for “Need Officer Right Away,” is used in some facilities to request a police officer for help with an aggressive person.

UK Daily Life 2024

Sometimes, code words can also be used by customers who want to ask for things they feel uncomfortable discussing with strangers. In the last couple of years, some UK supermarkets introduced free period products for people who can’t afford them, as well as code words to request the products: In Tesco, asking for a “white envelope” will discreetly let the staff know what they are looking for, while at Morrisons, they can ask for “a package for Sandy.”

Many codes are used in hospitals to prevent alarm and distress in patients and visitors alike. Some of the words involve colors and refer to different kinds of emergencies within the building (think Code Blue , the term used when adults are experiencing cardiac arrest or some other medical emergency), but there are also codes for things happening outside the hospital.  Code Green , for example, refers to external events—including natural disasters like hurricanes or tornados—that threaten the safety of staff and patients, and means the hospital staff has to initiate the facility’s emergency response plan.  

In recent years, code words have begun to be used in bars to help people who may be stuck in a dangerous situation. In the UK, they can go to the bar and ask for “Angela” to let staff know they’re in trouble, at which point they’ll help the person make safe arrangements to leave or help them locate their friends. In bars in the U.S., some European countries, and South Africa, a person can ask for an “angel shot” to signal that they need for help.

Mickey Mouse waving

Theme parks like Disney have their own vocabulary , and at Disney, those terms include some code words. Treasured guest is the superficially polite expression used by staff to refer to visitors who are rude or cause trouble. It’s deployed when staff need to communicate in front of the guest that this person will be difficult to deal with. Other Disney code words include protein spill (for when a guest vomits) and white powder alert (when someone tries to scatter a loved one’s ashes in the park).

15 Things Adults Can Enjoy on a Disney Cruise

W hen it comes to cruising, nobody does it quite like Disney. The ships, aptly named Magic, Wonder, Dream, Fantasy, and Wish, are vessels of excitement, from the spacious staterooms and fantastic entertainment to the imaginative youth clubs and sumptuous dining options. But what about the adults? You’ll be pleased to know that we have 15 things adults can enjoy on a Disney Cruise to ensure this age group has been remembered in this blog post.

The list varies from cruise ship to cruise ship since the deck plans and dining/entertainment options differ. Still, they can easily be swapped out depending on the boat you sail on.

1. Chill Out at Quiet Cove Pool

As a peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of the ship, the Quiet Cove Pool is a tranquil oasis where adults can enjoy a quiet swim, relax in the whirlpool spas, or soak in the sun. You can even order a refreshing beverage from the Cove Bar steps away.

The padded lounge chairs are perfect for reading a book, taking a nap, or relaxing.

Pro Tip : If you skip a port of call, you may have the Quiet Cove Pool all to yourself as we did.

2. Enjoy the State of the Art Fitness Center

For those looking for a more active way to spend their vacation, Disney offers a state-of-the-art fitness center complete with workout and cardiovascular equipment, weight machines, exercise classes (pilates, aerobics, yoga), and toning sessions. And let’s be honest, it’s a great way to offset all those incredible meals you’ll indulge in.

3. Dine at Remy or Palo

If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind dining experience, look no further than Remy and Palo. Both onboard the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, Remy offers a French-inspired gourmet dining experience, while Palo serves up Northern Italian cuisine. These adult-only restaurants require a reservation and a dress code, but it’s worth it.

Guests must be 18 or older.

Note : A reservation is needed to dine at both of these restaurants. Book them on the Disney Cruise Line website or once you get onboard. You will be charged a cancellation fee if you do not show up for your reservation.

4. Get Pampered at the Ship’s Spa and Salon

Get ready to indulge in serious pampering when you visit the spa and salon onboard a Disney ship. Choose from various treatments, from massages, body wraps, and facials to hair styling, teeth whitening, and pedicures, and enjoy some quality “me time” while being treated like royalty.

Disney’s Senses Salon and Spa was literally a retreat at sea with its fantastic services, steam rooms, and sauna. Spa appointments can be booked online or once you get onboard.

5. Catch a Movie or Show

Disney is known for its incredible entertainment, and their cruise ships are no exception. Check out the Buena Vista Theater, which features first-run movies and live shows, or head to the Walt Disney Theater for Broadway-style productions. And remember Disney’s incredible fireworks show, which takes place on most cruises.

6. Learn About (and Sip) Champagne

Head to Pink: Wine and Champagne Bar on the Disney Dream if you want a romantic or educational activity. The elegant atmosphere and incredible selection of wines and champagnes are sure to impress, and the Champagne Flight, featuring three glasses of bubbly, is the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion.

7. Dance at the Nightclubs and Lounges

Each Disney ship has an area full of bars and lounges. At night, this space becomes adults-only. Whether you want to sit back and listen to live music or drink a cocktail under a disco ball, there is something for all adults to do on a Disney Cruise of the evening.

Pro Tip: Icy pop cocktails are our favorite.

There’s plenty of fun after hours, from Ooh La La on the Disney Fantasy to Pub 687 on the Disney Dream, Fathom and Keys on the Disney Magic, and Azure on the Disney Wonder. My family loved the Pino bar and Skyline, where the city views changed daily.

8. Sign Up For a Tasting Class

Beverages tastings and classes are plentiful on Disney Cruise Line. You might find a few interesting ones aboard your cruise: bourbon, chocolate, rum, wine, martinis, margaritas, mojitos, and beer. Some classes may involve a nominal fee, but it is super fun to sample the (often) adult libations. I always look for things I want to familiarize myself with when I look for tasting to sign up for.

Pro Tip: Sign up early; these fill up quickly.

9. Participate in a Mixology Class

Are you feeling crafty? Head to the Meridian Lounge on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy for a mixology class, which will take your tasting one level further. Learn how to make classic cocktails, or try your hand at creating your own signature drink. It’s a fun and interactive way to spend an afternoon or evening.

10. Earn A Disney Medal

Don’t miss the chance to join the Castaway Cay 5K while visiting Disney’s private island in the Bahamas. This 3.1-mile trek showcases hidden parts of the island you wouldn’t otherwise see. The 5K is free and suitable for all fitness levels, whether you prefer running or walking. Plus, every participant receives a coveted Disney medal upon completion.

To register for the Castaway Cay 5K, visit Guest Services.

11. Check Out the Disney Cruise Line Activities

Disney offers a variety of engaging activities for adults to enjoy throughout the day. With your very own Adult Activities Director, you can partake in bingo, bridge, volleyball, trivia, karaoke, dancing, crafts, and interactive game shows.

Take advantage of the opportunity to make new friends and have a blast!

12. Take Your Own Character Photos

What better way to document your Disney Cruise than a picture with your favorite Disney characters or Mickey Mouse in my book? The cast will make several appearances during your cruise, each time in different outfits.

Relish the short photo lines onboard and collect as many photos as possible to document your memorable Disney cruise.

13. Enjoy An Adult-Only Port Adventure

Most Disney Cruise itineraries offer adult-only excursions. Look for a note indicating that it’s for adults under the Port Adventures listing. These trips cover rum tours, snorkeling, cabana massages, and historic site visits.

Check the Disney Cruise Line website or ask the Port Adventures desk for adult-exclusive excursions onboard.

14. See Broadway-Style Shows

Disney Cruise Line’s live stage shows could be on Broadway –they are that good! The music, costumes, and sets are pretty phenomenal, especially for a cruise. Each ship has different productions.

Dream : Disney’s Believe (story of a busy father who reconnects with his daughter with the help of a little Disney magic), The Golden Mickeys (a tribute to Walt Disney films featuring a few characters you don’t see very often), and Beauty and the Beast.

Wish : Disney’s Aladdin — A Musical Spectacular, The Little Mermaid, and Disney Seas the Adventure.

Magic : Twice Charmed, An Original Twist on the Cinderella Story, Disney Dreams — An Enchanted Classic, and Tangled: The Musical.

Wonder : The Golden Mickeys, Disney Dreams —An Enchanted Classic, and Frozen, A Musical Spectacular.

Fantasy : Disney’s Believe, Frozen: A Musical Spectacular, and Disney’s Aladdin — A Musical Spectacular.

I recommend seeing the shows, even if you typically skip them. If you don’t feel like getting dressed and going to the Walt Disney Theater, you can watch them on TV in your stateroom.

15. Relax at a Private Bahamian Oasis

Serenity Bay is an exclusive adults-only retreat on Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. If your cruise includes visiting Castaway Cay, Bahamas, spend your day at this tranquil beach. Serenity Bay offers a perfect escape for adults, whether you seek relaxation, water activities, live music, or the Open Air Bar.

Castaway Cay is truly a white sand beach paradise with umbrellas, beach chairs, waterslides, and all sorts of outdoor fun. There is a playground, shops, walking and running trails, and a specialty barbecue restaurant for dining on the island.

Misconceptions about Disney Cruise Line

Despite popular belief, kids are not omnipresent on Disney Cruises. While you may come across children, most of them are well-behaved. The onboard kid’s clubs are fantastic, and many children choose to spend a significant portion of their vacation there. The ship’s theme centers around Disney without being overwhelming.

While the dining rooms and live shows reflect Disney movies, you won’t have Goofy sitting next to you or be forced to watch “Frozen” repeatedly. Despite Disney ties in adult nightlife areas, the cruise offers an escape from a typical “Disney vacation.”

Disney Cruise Line caters to more than just families with small children. One Christmas, my family (including a 22-year-old) had a blast on a Disney Cruise. There was ample entertainment for all ages while still enjoying quality family time. Disney caters to families of all ages.

For those interested, Disney’s ports of call in the Caribbean include Costa Maya, Progreso, and Cozumel, Mexico, as well as George Town (Grand Cayman), Bahamas, Falmouth (Jamaica), and several Florida ports or embarkation cities (Fort Lauderdale, Miami, and Port Canaveral).

Organized port excursions range from zip lining to submarine tours and lots of in-between.

There are plenty of things adults can enjoy on a Disney Cruise. If you want to relax, shop, eat, or indulge in the outdoors, there is something for everyone!

Disney Cruise Line's rotational dining: What to know about this unique dinner concept

Ashley Kosciolek

Much like Captain Hook, Jafar and Ursula, Disney Cruise Line 's rotational dining is iconic to some but plain evil to others.

When you cruise with Disney, rotational dining dictates how you and your cruise companions dine each night in your ship's main restaurants. On the one hand, it's a rigid schedule that takes the ability to choose away from travelers, which some cruisers don't like. On the other hand, knowing where you will eat each night makes dinnertime less chaotic and guarantees you will experience each of your ship's themed restaurants at least once.

Here's everything you need to know about Disney Cruise Line's dining system , including what rotational dining is, which ships have it and which main restaurants are included on each vessel.

What is Disney Cruise Line's rotational dining?

disney cruise rooms for 6

Rotational dining is Disney Cruise Line's unique dinner concept. You and your travel party are assigned to dine in one of three complimentary onboard restaurants at a set time each night of your sailing. You'll sit with your group at an assigned table and with assigned waiters.

You'll dine at each of the three restaurants at least once on short sailings and at least twice on weeklong voyages, according to a schedule given to you on board. Your table number will remain the same, and your waiters will travel with you. On voyages longer than three nights, you'll visit some of the restaurants more than once, possibly with a different menu for pirate night or the welcome aboard dinner. Cruisers can't choose which venues they visit an extra time.

Each dining room has a different menu, so the rotation ensures you can dine at each of your ship's main dining rooms at least once.

Each dining room also has a different theme, which might tie into Disney animation, a garden at sunset, characters from the movie "Frozen" or Marvel immersion. Sometimes, the restaurant will include a show or mealtime entertainment. Different ships have differently themed rotational dining restaurants.

Which Disney ships have rotational dining?

disney cruise rooms for 6

Rotational dining is on all ships in the Disney Cruise Line fleet:

  • Disney Dream
  • Disney Fantasy
  • Disney Magic
  • Disney Treasure
  • Disney Wish
  • Disney Wonder

Disney Dream rotational dining

The three main restaurants that cater to rotational dining on Disney Dream are Animator's Palate, which allows passengers to have conversations with animations of Crush (the turtle from "Finding Nemo") via giant screens along the walls; Enchanted Garden, which feels like you're dining in a garden as the sun slowly sets; and Royal Palace, featuring paintings of Disney Princesses and a French-influenced menu.

Disney Wish rotational dining

On Disney Wish, passengers will rotate among Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure , which features a Norwegian-forward menu in celebration of Anna's engagement to Kristoff; Worlds of Marvel , where Ant-Man accidentally shrinks the ship and then tries to fix it; and 1923, a less interactive and more elegant restaurant with an art deco motif that's inspired by the golden age of animation.

Disney Magic rotational dining

Passengers on Disney Magic will rotate between Rapunzel's Royal Table, which celebrates Rapunzel's birthday with singing, dancing and visits from characters, and Lumiere's, a rather nondescript dining room with a loose but hardly noticeable "Beauty and the Beast" theme. The ship also has Animator's Palate, but it differs from Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy because, instead of conversations with Crush, it features decor and waiter uniforms that are black and white but gradually turn colorful throughout the meal.

Disney Fantasy rotational dining

Like Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy also has Animator's Palate and Enchanted Garden, as well as Royal Court, which is the same as Royal Palace with the exception of the name.

Disney Wonder rotational dining

On Disney Wonder, cruisers will move between Tiana's Place, a New Orleans-themed eatery that draws from "The Princess and the Frog"; Triton's, which is loosely based on "The Little Mermaid" and the most formal of the restaurants; and a version of Animator's Palate similar to the one on Disney Magic.

Disney Treasure rotational dining

Disney Treasure will introduce new rotational dining restaurants and dinner shows, and its weeklong cruises will allow guests to dine at each twice. Plaza de Coco features "dinner in the round" with performances by characters from the movie "Coco," and Worlds of Marvel will return with new and updated shows. Also returning from Disney Wish is 1923, with slightly different decor.

Is rotational dining optional?

disney cruise rooms for 6

Disney Cruise Line's buffet is not open for dinner on most sailings, and its ships don't have main dining rooms that cater to travelers who prefer flexible dining times. If you want a complimentary sit-down restaurant meal, you need to follow the rotational dining schedule.

If you choose not to eat in the main dining rooms as part of rotational dining, you can opt for room service or choose to pay extra for an alternative restaurant, such as Palo , Remy or Enchante . However, the extra-fee restaurants are adults-only and do not accept diners younger than 18. If you're traveling with children, alternatives to rotational dining are extremely limited.

Pros and cons of rotational dining

Disney Cruise Line's rotational dining guarantees every passenger is able to eat in every venue at least once, so they won't miss any of the included dinner shows or experiences. It also helps to better stagger the number of passengers trying to see the line's phenomenal theater shows either before or after the two set dining times.

Additionally, it provides structure to mealtimes and allows waiters, who follow passengers from restaurant to restaurant, to learn passenger preferences, thereby offering a more elevated level of service.

With rotational dining, you and your travel companions have to eat at whichever time and restaurant Disney assigns you. That can be frustrating for passengers who prefer to eat earlier or later than the time they're assigned or who just want a relaxed experience following a busy day in port.

Another downside is that the menus tend to be themed (French at Royal Palace and Royal Court, Norwegian at Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure, Cajun at Tiana's Place and so forth). If you're not a fan of the type of cuisine served and wish to skip a meal in a main restaurant, you're limited to whatever happens to still be available on the pool deck (hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza and the like) when you're hungry for dinner.

If you're traveling with children, rotational dining can be either a blessing or a curse. If your kids are able to tolerate sit-down meals and enjoy the entertainment, it works well. If they're bored with a multicourse, sit-down meal, you might find yourself frustrated that Disney Cruise Line offers so few grab-and-go alternatives.

Bottom line

On a Disney Cruise, rotational dining at an assigned time is the only option if you'd like to eat in one of the main dining rooms and not be stuck with room service or pricey alternative dining that doesn't allow children.

Although the concept is somewhat inflexible, it's efficient, allows passengers to try all the restaurants (and see all the dinner shows) and ensures service continuity since cruisers have the same waiters as they move from venue to venue each night. The schedule also guarantees all cruisers can find seats in the theater for each night's show, which has two performances at two different times. (Those who are assigned to eat late go to the early show and vice versa.)

Whether you love it or hate it, rotational dining is a unique way to experience dinner on a Disney cruise.
