Guests with Disabilities – Frequently Asked Questions


Am I allowed to bring my service animal on the cruise?


Yes. Trained service animals are welcome in most locations on board Disney Cruise ships. All service animals must remain on a leash and under your control, or that of someone in your travel party, at all times. Further, you will be responsible for the care and feeding of your animal.

Service animals are not permitted in the pools or wet play areas on board our ships and may not be left unattended inside a stateroom. Disney Cruise Line Crew Members are not permitted to take control of a service animal.

Due to the nature of some Port Adventures excursions, service animals may not be permitted.

Important note: You are responsible for obtaining the import permits from all countries that require those special documents and must have those original documents available at all times. Specific information may be obtained by contacting the United States Department of Agriculture, or the applicable United States consulate, or embassy of each country to determine such country’s policies and obtain the permits needed for each port of call on the sailing itinerary. Please be aware that obtaining those permits can take weeks or months, and some countries may not allow animals to enter at all.

Copies of completed permits for each port of call must be sent to Disney Cruise Line Special Services prior to the sail date.

We strongly encourage Guests traveling with a service animal to contact Disney Cruise Line Special Services as soon as possible to discuss required documentation, the set-up of a relief area and the availability of Port Adventures.
