The practice of hiding rubber ducks on cruise ships is no longer allowed on Disney Cruise Line, according to a recent planDisney post.
Rubber Ducks on Disney Cruise Line
A guest asked planDisney, “Are we allowed to hide ducks on the ships? Security on our recent Disney cruise were removing them and told us to stop but I can’t find this written anywhere.”
Panelist Adrianna answered the question, saying, “I’ve been hearing rumblings that guests are being discouraged from hiding ducks onboard Disney Cruise ships, so I called the friendly agents at Disney Cruise Line to ask if they had an official policy that I could share with you. I was advised that guests cannot hide things, such as rubber ducks in staterooms or public areas on the ship.”
Adrianna continued, “I know that this is a popular thing to do for many cruisers onboard, but it sounds like it’s being discouraged and as you said, Crew Members are removing any ducks they spot around the ship.”
The post did not indicate that guests who hid ducks would face any punitive action. For now, it seems, Cast Members are simply removing the ducks.
Hiding and re-hiding rubber ducks isn’t just a game Disney Cruise Line guests engage in. It’s popular on other cruise lines as well. It’s not clear why Disney Cruise Line is now discouraging guests from hiding rubber ducks but it’s possible some ducks were hidden in dangerous spots or they disrupted Cast Members in some way.
