Changes to Disney Cruise Line Alcohol Policy

According to several of my online sources, starting Sept. 19, 2011, there will be changes to Disney’s alcohol policies regarding bringing your own liquor, wine, or beer onto the ship.

The previous policy was:

Alcohol is permitted to be bought onboard the Disney Cruise Line by guests over 21 years of age. To bring these items onboard (to include beer, alchohol or wine), all items must be hand-carried on board in a day bag and/or carry-on bag.  The dimensions of the bag must not exceed 22″ wide, 14″ high and 9″ deep. Alcohol brought onboard may not be consumed in any lounge or public area. Guests who arrive in the dining room with a bottle of champagne or wine that has been brought on board will be charged a corking fee of $20.00 per bottle.

Disney announced that this policy will be changing. Starting on the 19th it will be:

On embarkation day, guests (21 years of age and older) may bring on board one unopened bottle (750ml) of wine or champagne, or six bottles/cans (12 oz.) of beer per person, and it must be hand-carried in a day bag and/or carry-on luggage.  Carry-on luggage dimensions cannot exceed 22″ wide, 14″ high and 9″ deep.

I have never been on a Disney cruise, and I don't have one planned for anytime soon but I can see how some people would be upset about the change. Does this impact your travel plans and/or your budget?
