Bringing alcohol on board

I know dcl's policy is to bring alcohol on a carry on but what if you're flying? Is it possible to put it in a checked bag then move it into a carry on once you get to Orlando? I am taking disneys transfer bus (can't remember the name).

Also is there a liquor store in the airport?

To move your alcohol you would have to not put your cruise tags on the luggage so you can claim it, move the bottles and then take it to the bus. Of course if you're flying in the day before that's what you would do anyway.

It is not a good idea. If the bottles break it will get all over your stuff and most likely others whose luggage is near yours. I would be so angry if when I picked up my bag it was covered in alcohol and I am sure since the airline might not know whose bag leaked it os unfair that they would have to deal with very unhappy customers due to someone trying to save a few dollars.
I would suggest that if you want to bring your own and do not have access to a liquor stoee in FL thaf you check it into a special box/carrier made for shipping bottels. I just went to Napa & we bought one there to check our bottles. That way the bottels are supported and it marked so hopefully the airline treats it the cost to ship it properly it might not be a cost savings to bring your own.

Wine bottles can safely be transported within airline checked luggage if properly packed. I use Bottle Armor and have done this several times with no breakage/issue, including flying back from Napa to the East Coast.

If you are flying in the same day, pick one of your suitcases (not a really large one - make sure it will fit through an airport type security scanner), or two, to pack the alcohol in. Make sure it is packaged properly to avoid leaks and breakage. Don't put the DCL luggage tags on that bag. Pick it up yourself from the baggage claim, and carry it on the bus and onto the ship with you.

Previous poster is correct, the only liquor available in the airport itself is at the duty free shops for international travlers.
