Here is a post with the pictures. You currently get a CC lanyard and 2 pins per person at check in and a CC bag in the room...that is one per room.

Did most recent cruisers finally confirm that we get the bag in addition to the pins? If so, that's great news! :love:

What's the age on this???

Last cruise DD - 3 - we had to "pay for" - shouldn't she be a CC member?

Just wondered do they give the pins @ the CC checkin line - as being from the UK I have to go to the alien line ( :rotfl: )

Do you think they give them out to aliens?

LOL! Actually, there is a seperate line for CC members but they go to the same CMs that non CC guests do. It is like a FP at the parks. ;)

Now, see, if Disney CL execs were reading this, this would open a whole new line of thinking for them. MrsJobba1, you are a hoot! Do you dress up when you check in as a Martian?!?!?! :rotfl2: :rotfl2: :rotfl2: I would probably never make in on the ship, I'd be laughing so hard they'd have to carry me!

I just checked in this afternoon...

We each got the lanyard and two pins at check in. We checked in through the CC member line, so don't know if the CM took note of that or if something on her computer told her that we were returning members.

And we got ONE bag in the stateroom. Of course DD is now whining because I "always" get the "good" stuff (I confiscated the past DCL beach towel, and the repo cruise blanket). Tough noogies babie, I paid for the cruise, I get the booty. :rotfl2:

I just wanted to say I love the photos of your dogs - Is that a bernese mountain dog ( SP? ) I must say they are my second fave breed of dog behind my border collies! :goodvibes

Yes Abby is our first Bernese (but not the last). The breed is so different than other dogs i've met/owned. She's truly a blessing. She's big yet so gentle with smaller dogs. She loves to cuddle at least twice a day. They shed a whole heck of a lot but i can overlook that.

I've been trying to search for a picture of the bag they give CC members, but the search function still isn't working. Does anyone have a pic of the bag? I need to decide if it will work for our family of 5 on excursions or if I should bring one from home. Thanks!

I found this on ebay. If the link doesn't show up just do an Ebay search for Disney Cruise Bag.

That's nice! We have a couple of the duffel bags they gave out way back when, plus the odd assortment of towels and West Coast blanket. This will make a nice addition!

Thanks, Mom323!

Is there some place on your reservation that shows your cc number? We have sailed before and are getting ready to go on our 2nd one, but I don't remember telling the travel agent our cc number but she knew we had sailed DCL previously. Thanks!

To confirm what others have said...

When you check in, they have an indication as to whether you are a repeat cruiser, and will give you a lanyard and two pins for each person. It does not matter if you check in the CC line. (if you notice if the CC line gets to be too long, they will send some CC members to the other lines)

The two pins are identical to each other. On the cardboard, it says one is to keep, the other is to trade. The CM's on board were getting overwhelmed with them. I wound up just giving one of these pins to the driver of the Radisson shuttle.

One note about the lanyard, or more important, the plastic which hangs from the lanyard. It is not that sturdy. Two of our four ripped, which would allow the contents (such as your KTTW card) to fall out. DD8 lost hers on the first day, and we heard of others who lost keys as well. We wound up replacing the plastic holders with holders from the lanyards we brought with us.
