Actually you can get a corkscrew from room service. We were just on the Fantasy last week and brought two bottles of wine on board. We purposely bought screw top bottles. On the first day at sea we ordered the "all hands on deck" cheese plate and two wine glasses. The also brought a wine opener even though we hadn't asked for one.

BTW, the "corkage fee" isn't actually about opening the bottle. You'll be charged this even if the bottle is already open when you bring it to the dining room.

I've been reading these posts and thinking back to our first cruise, I carefully packed several bottles of nice wine...and forgot the corkscrew! Stateroom host got us one...Thanks Art!

When we got back I thought to myself, there must be a way to open a bottle of wine without a corkscrew. Found this:

Love it! Just don't forget to bring a tree.

I think that if you bring the open bottle to the dining room you'll be charged the fee. However, if you just bring a glass of wine you won't be. You could have gotten that the bar prior to dinner...

I guess it depends on how much you like to play by the rules - from the DCL website:

Beverage Policy.


QuestionWhat is the policy regarding bringing alcoholic beverages on board?
AnswerAlcohol 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.

You can always ask for glasses at the bar (plastic if on pool deck) and bring your first glass with you to dinner. On the Magic recently we had late seating and would stop at Diversions for a snack and a drink before getting cleaned up for dinner, and when leaving ask for two wine glasses which they cheerfully provided. If we wanted a second glass of wine in the dining room they have several reasonably priced wines by the glass between $6 -$7 I recall...
