Disney Travel News

By: Disney Destinations
In an effort to maintain a high level of safety for all of Disney's  Guests, some items are prohibited from being brought onboard any of Disney's ships and on  Castaway Cay .   

As a reminder, if you attempts to bring any items classified as a “Prohibited Item” onboard,  Disney Cruise Line  reserves the right to seize and secure any item deemed to be dangerous or pose a security or safety risk.   

The following are some examples of prohibited items:   


  • Guests should refrain from bringing toys or props that resemble guns, knives or other related implements, as these items  may not  be brought onboard.    
  • Store-bought collapsible lightsabers  may  be brought onboard. Guests will not be allowed to bring homemade lightsabers onboard.   
  • Lightsabers built at  Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge  are not collapsible and, therefore,  may not  be brought onboard.  
  • Plastic toy 'pirate' swords  may  be brought onboard. Plastic toy swords are also sold in the merchandise shops onboard.  
  • Plastic store-bought toy “Mjolnir” hammers (Thor’s hammer)  may  be brought onboard.   
  • Loki's scepter (staff) and/or Hawkeye's bow and arrow  may not  be brought onboard.  
  • Black Panther claws/gloves with claws  may not  be brought onboard.   

Food Items  

  • Homemade or pre-cooked food items, open snack containers or any other perishable items  cannot  be brought onboard any  Disney Cruise Line  ship. Limitations on permitted food items are directly related to concerns for food safety and contamination prevention.  
  • Non-perishable, government approved snack food items  may  be brought onboard in their sealed, original packaging. These items may also be taken off the ship in the different ports of call, as well as when disembarking at the end of the cruise.  
  • Open bags or containers of snack items  may not  be taken off the ship or brought back onboard. Guests must either consume or throw away open snack food items before re-boarding the ship in any port of call.   

Sports Equipment  

  • The below equipment (and other similar items)  may not  be brought onboard or on  Castaway Cay  because of safety concerns:    
  • Archery equipment  
  • Baseball and cricket bats
