Disney Seeks to Clarify “All That’s Included” on a Disney Cruise Line Package

Having gone on my first Disney Cruise earlier this year, I have to admit I was very wrong about my expectations. I didn’t realize that a Disney Cruise was an all-inclusive experience for one price, and apparently many other potential travelers haven’t either as the Disney Parks Blog released information today on “all that’s included.”

What is included in a Disney Cruise Line Package for the price?

Yes, food and entertainment are included in the cost of your cabin. In fact, most things are save for alcoholic beverages and a few select dining experiences.

Here’s more from the Disney Parks Blog…
