If anyone's interested, here's a wine list, I think the prices are by the glass and bottle:

thanks for the list pshmoo.
like pretty much all wine lists, there is a standard markup.
for example the king estate pinot noir is about $22 on land. so at $52, a $30 markup. even allowing for the $20 corkage if you carried on, you are still "overpaying" by $10.
the kim crawford sauv blanc retails about $15 and is listed at $43. allowing for corkage you are overpaying $8.
is it worth the hassle of buying and lugging on your own wine to save $8-10 a bottle? only the individual can decide.

Thanks for posting the wine list, PrincessShmoo! So very helpful! Here, in Ontario, I've priced some of the wines from the premium package to be approx $20 each. But I see some wines I would love o try that are not on the package, but still reasonably priced. I think we may end up not getting the package after all.

I have no issue carrying on red wine. However, what about wines/sparkling wines you want chilled? Our anniversary is the first day we are on board, but if I carry it on, how will champagne be chilled? Can you ask for an ice bucket from the room steward? Or should I just buy the bottle on board for that?

It's per bottle. However, I do not know if they will hold the bottle. Between my husband and I one bottle does not last long.

Yes, if you do not finish your bottle, they will recork it and bring it to your next MDR. Or the next one, if you have a different wine you want with the next dinner.

If they have some for $30 or $35 I'd rather just get theirs.
For the quality of wine we drink, the 20 dollar corkage fee was definitely worth it.

We drove to the port the first time we cruised (Port of LA) and brought about 12 bottles of wine on board so flying to our second cruise is posing a huge problem. We live in California and like our wine choice here. We would like to bring aboard the same amount but getting it there is a bit more challenging.
So for us, yes the 20 dollar corkage fee is definitely a great deal.

We are from CA as well. I was sad to see I cannot ship wine to FL, so we are at the mercy of the liquor stores near our hotel in Miami. If anyone knows any good ones, please let me know!

Why not just pack a case and ship it as luggage? We are from New Orleans and when we go to Napa we always cram as much stuff into one suitcase so that we can bring empty wine boxes with us. We fill them up in Napa and check them as baggage on the way home. We generally try to fly Southwest because of the two bags free.

We have friends that ship wine home but I don't see the need when I can check it as baggage for free.

Why can't you ship wine to FL?

Me and the wife will be driving a rent a car to the port after a night at WDW. We will stop at a liquor store on the way and buy some wine and a cork screw. We will enjoy it on the veranda after dinner and not have to worry about any corkage fee.

Yes. "Corking" refers to the opening of any container, be it a cork, screw-top, or a box.

The corking fee only applies to wine brought into the MDRs.

That is exactly what we do, happy hour on the veranda with wine and cheese then off to dinner with full glass in hand. Going on our third cruise next month and we have never had a problem doing this. Room service will bring you wine glasses and a corkscrew if you need one. Cheers
