TV in cabins -- HDMI?
 
My husband thinks he'll have nothing to do on board is prepping his portable devices.
He wants to know -- do the TV's in the rooms have HDMI ports on them so he knows whether to pack the cable?

Anyone know this? I told him I would ask on the board.

Setting sail shortly on the New years cruise!! Would appreciate any answers!!

Whether compatible or not, the DCL FAQ says such items are prohibited.

From the DCL FAQ: http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/fa...hibited-items/

Quote:

In order to maintain a safe and secure environment for our Guests and crew, the following are examples of items that Guests are not allowed to bring on board. These and other similar items will be confiscated upon being found.

DVD, VCR, or Blu ray players or, Playstation, Xbox, and Nintendo Wii gaming systems are not allowed because of compatibility issues with the stateroom TVs
While this might just be because they don't want the possibility of people damaging their televisions, I'd be reluctant to bring them because you'd run the risk of having them removed from your bags and held until the end of the cruise. I'm guessing the stateroom hosts have also been instructed to tell a supervisor if they see such items hooked up.

I'm sure someone else will pipe in to say that they've taken such things without problem, but just offering my two cents and pointing you to the DCL site so you can make your decision.

HTH.

The TVs do have hdmi inputs and they do work. They also have an VGA port to plug in a laptop.

Yup we have plugged in our portable dvd player many times. Never had it removed and even asked at guest service if it was okay and they said yes.

The old Tvs they had were not compatible.

Thanks for the responses!
We're not bring a portable DVD player -- he wants to plug in his tablet. which they wouldn't confiscate because it's always with him....
