Are you curious about how to do laundry on a Disney cruise?
Depending on the length of your trip, you may not need to take advantage of full service or self-service laundry facilities onboard. However, if you are sailing on a longer itinerary or traveling with a baby, you may be interested in learning more about the Disney Cruise Line launderettes.
In this post, I will walk you through the process of doing your laundry on a Disney cruise while providing information on the onboard cost of using the self service machines.

Where are the laundry rooms onboard?
Each of the Disney cruise ships provides laundry facilities on multiple decks. If you are sailing on the Disney Magic or the Disney Wonder, you will find launderettes on Decks 2, 6, and 7. For those cruising on the Disney Fantasy or the Disney Dream, Deck 2 and Decks 5-10 hold laundry rooms.
The laundry facilities are really easy to find. You can even use the Disney Cruise Navigator App to direct you.
In addition to using the app to find where the laundry facilities are located, you can look at the deck plan hanging on the wall beside each stairwell. You can see in the photo above that the launderette is labeled on the deck plan, making it super easy to find.
Self Service Laundry
I have always found the process of doing laundry on a Disney cruise to be really simple and pleasant. The launderettes are easy to locate, and I have never found them to be very busy.
When you enter the laundry facilities, you will notice several amenities available:
- fabric softener
There are clear instructions posted to help guide you as to how to access each amenity
Are there irons on a Disney cruise?
The self service laundry facilities include free use of an iron and ironing board. Note that the irons must be used in the launderette, and you cannot remove them from this space.
The price to do your laundry on a Disney cruise ship is super reasonable. You can use the screen provided to choose the services and products you want to purchase.
There is no need to take cash or coins with you. Instead, you just swipe your Key to the World card and your onboard account will show the laundry fee. After purchasing your credits for a few dollars, you can choose a washing machine to get started.
Once your wash cycle has completed, you should receive a text message via the Disney Cruise Navigator App stating that you can move your things to a dryer.
Full Service Laundry Cost
Disney Cruise Line provides full service laundry and dry cleaning as well; although, the cost is significantly more than the self service option. Inside your stateroom closet, you should see a laundry bag and menu with pricing.
If you choose to utilize the full service option, you can notify your stateroom host or Guest Services of your laundry requests.
DCL Laundry Packing List
These are items that I always make sure to bring on a Disney cruise to help keep our clothing fresh and organized!
- Collapsible Hamper– I set up this small hamper in our stateroom to keep all of our dirty clothes in one spot. This hamper folds up flat so it takes up very little space in your luggage. This is the collapsible hamper I pack. (Amazon Affiliate Link)
- Packing Cubes– These packing cubes go with us no matter where we are traveling. They provide a great way to sort, organize, and store your clean clothing. You can see the packing cubes I use here! (Amazon Affiliate Link)
- Downy Wrinkle Releaser– We use this while traveling AND at home. You just spray it on your clothing and then tug to smooth out the wrinkles. Once it dries, your clothes are wrinkle free! Find Downy Wrinkle Releaser here! (Amazon Affiliate Link)
- Magnetic Hooks– We usually pack two to three swimsuits per person for a cruise. When swimwear is wet, I hang it on one of these hooks to dry. Since the stateroom walls are magnetic, you can place one of these hooks on virtually any wall in your cabin. You can see the magnetic hooks we have here! (Amazon Affiliate Link)
If you are planning a Disney cruise with a short itinerary, you may not need to use the onboard self service laundry facilities.
However, those sailing on longer trips may find relief when planning outfits and packing clothes by knowing launderettes are easily available onboard…
And that the cost of doing laundry on a Disney Cruise is super reasonable!
