Sneaking Drinks
 
I know you can bring alcohol onto the ship in your carry on and can consume it in your stateroom but has anyone tried to sneak a drink to take to sit by the adult pool?

Yes , if its in a concealed cup no one says anything ! My friend bought a DCL travel mug & used that for his drinks ...

People do it all the time. And you've use the correct terminology "sneak". As in you know you're doing something against what DCL asks.

Question
What is the policy regarding bringing alcoholic beverages on board?
Answer
Alcohol is permitted on board. However, any fragile items (including alcoholic beverages) must be hand-carried on board in the carry-on of an adult Guest age 21 or older (dimensions can't exceed 22" wide, 14" high and 9" deep).

Alcohol brought on board may not be consumed in any lounge or public area.

Guests who arrive in the dining room, including Palo and Remy, with a bottle of champagne or wine will be charged a corking fee of $20.00 per bottle.

Please be advised: Disney Cruise Line reserves the right to remove fragile items (including beverages) from checked luggage. In such cases, items will be stored and returned at the end of the voyage. Beverage containers are considered fragile and have previously caused damage in checked luggage. All fragile items must be transported inside carry-on luggage.

I think it's against DISboard rulebook to ask questions about circumventing something that is against Disney policy. :confused3

You can't delete it. You can ask the moderators to close or remove it, I think.

Don't worry about the thread, there are lots of people who ask questions pertaining to "how can I ..." arrive earlier than my PAT; let my 10 year old in Edge, or my 18 year in Vibe; get my 17 year old into Palo; let my non-concierge travel companions use the concierge lounge.etc.

I've had non-DCL alcoholic drinks in public without sneaking them. No problem.
Bunch of us Disers had a great time:thumbsup2

I got the impression the OP was referring to whether there was a DCL policy and was it enforced...so no rule broken there.
Kind of like asking if you could wear shorts to dinner...
I think you can still ask that, right:confused3;)

I'm always surprised at how blatant people are in flaunting their disregard for this policy, especially considering the consensus that DCL pays attention to what is posted here. I know they backpedaled on changing their alcohol policy once before, but I wonder who among us will howl the loudest when they change it for good.

If you add some rum or whatever to a glass of soda/juice, who is going to know. I have never seen DCL send CM's around to sniff/taste cruisers cups to see if they're "sneaking" alcohol into their drinks. There is no way for anyone to know what is in your cup. I'm sure if DCL allows you to bring on alcohol, they know you are going to drink it. Now if you walk around with a fifth taking slugs right from the bottle, they would probably say something. ;)
As previous poster stated, DCL asks for no shorts in dining rooms - they are regularly worn. Formal night is a complete joke to some people who show up in clothes I wouldn't wear to dinner at hometown restaurants. People arrive long before their PAT hoping to get on the ship earlier. So having a bit of alcohol in a glass of soda is no different.

Out of all of those annoyances mentioned above, only the alcohol issue dips into DCL's bottom line. So yes. They certainly might care quite a bit about enforcing that rule.

Thanks for asking! Disney's policy is, as usual, crystal clear, reasonable, and subject to some who disregard it with the excuse that its not enforced. DCL is the only line I know that allows us to bring alcohol on board, a wonderful courtesy for which I thank them. I hope the minority who abuse this courtesy don't eventually lose it for us all.

Have a drink in your stateroom, relish Disney allowing this, teach your children how to make right decisions, and enjoy your cruise!

Since the subject was "Sneaking" drinks, not, "Am I allowed to bring my own alcohol into public areas" I figured there was subterfuge involved. Why would you "sneak", unless you knew it wasn't allowed?

OP, don't worry about it...the first offense is usually just a warning...unless it's blatantly disrespectful, and I've seen a LOT worse without any repercussions. Just a public service reminder that we're not suppose to encourage breaking Disney Rules.

we were on the magic in February and we thought we were not allowed to drink around the boat. We even had beers in a bucket covered up with a towel in the bar until a CM told us we were allowed to drink anywhere including bars. We never bought beer on the boat the whole time. We drank our own beer and alcohol at all the bars, everywhere!! So yes drink anywhere you want!!

wdw_monster 04-05-2013 04:19 AM

everywhere except the MDRs, I think. We didn't try it there, i had heard something about a corking fee
