There are so many ways to make memories and have fun on a Disney cruise — including the time spent in your stateroom! Not only is it the place to rest and recharge between exciting experiences at port and at sea, but it’s also the special place where you and your loved ones share the beginning and end of each day.

Did you know that Disney Imagineers designed our staterooms specifically with families in mind? That means every feature is tailored to your needs, from spacious settings to top-of-the-line amenities … and of course, whimsical Disney touches thrown in just for fun!

Want to know more? Check out the top five reasons your Disney Cruise Line stateroom is the perfect home away from home:


1. Details (and Surprises!) in the Design
Our staterooms were expertly designed for maximum convenience and comfort, with unique features like elevated beds (with plenty of storage space beneath) and plenty of connecting doors for larger parties. Plus, pixie-dusted details throughout the room add touches of Disney magic to your stay… like celestial views of Peter Pan soaring overhead from your pull-down bed!

2. No Waiting in Line for Mirror Time
Even our bathrooms were thoughtfully designed! Disney introduced its signature bath-and-a-half concept to the cruise industry to make getting ready more convenient for families. While one room includes a vanity, sink and full tub/shower, the “half” bath has a vanity, sink and toilet. And many staterooms feature round tubs with a built-in seat, a rain shower head and a hand-held shower – perfect for giving children a bath!

3. Ocean Views Galore
The majority of Disney Cruise Line staterooms feature verandahs or oversized portholes, but Disney Imagineers took things a step further aboard the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, where even the inside staterooms offer a (virtual) window to the world. These industry-first Magical Portholes provide a real-time look “outside”… plus an occasional visit by Disney character friends!

4. Disney Movies All Day and Night
Whether you’re looking to re-watch your favorite Disney classic or catch up on the latest releases, you can switch on your stateroom TV and find a variety of Disney movies to enjoy. What’s better than ending your day with a family movie night? (Answer: Nothing!)

5. Complimentary Room Service
Breakfast in bed, afternoon nosh or midnight snack – cravings can be satisfied any time of day with 24-hour complimentary room service on all Disney cruise ships. Pro Tip: Remember that movie night we were just talking about? Add an order of milk and cookies!


  • Love our Disney Dream stateroom. We rave to everyone about the bath-and-a-half layout, allowing more than one person to get ready at a time. Love the raised bed providing ample storage underneath. So many closets and drawers to stash our beach and dinner clothes. Love the size of our DCL staterooms vs other lines, allowing extra space to move about too! We even like the energy saving features, with the keycard for stateroom lighting. Can’t wait for the new ships but DCL got the stateroom layout right.

  • I had a wonderful time on the Disney cruise but your staterooms were unimpressive with the exception of the split bathrooms. The lack of having two double beds thus having to share a bed was inconvenient. The rooms were small and the decor was bland. The rest of the ship was nice but the statreooms need to be reworked. Also this was not my first cruise so I have sailed on other ships so I do have the ability to compare.
