IMPORTANT!! All DCL cruisers please read!!

Hi everyone,

The site has been asked by to relay the following message regarding stateroom door decorations on DCL ships:
More and more guests are choosing to express their family pride and enthusiasm for Disney Cruise Line by decorating their stateroom doors aboard our ships.

As you might imagine, it is very important to us to keep our facilities looking their best for all our guests.

As part of our commitment to this area of focus, we ask that guests no longer affix anything to their stateroom door utilizing any adhesive or tape.

We have found that these adhesives damage the finish on the stateroom doors and therefore ask that guests limit door decoration to those of the magnetic variety.

PLEASE DO NOT USE ANY GEL DECORATIONS...THEY DISCOLOR THE DOORS AND FURNITURE.
Unofficially, what I'm hearing is that DCL is considering the possibility of levying surcharges on people who damage the door finish with adhesives. They're trying to avoid that because the really do appreciate the passion and creativity that people are putting into this, but the issue with the finishes coming off the doors is getting to be a real issue. I know some have already received this notice on-board the ship, but I wanted to make sure it's out there for everyone.

Thanks,
Pete

Thank you

Thanks for posting this! My family is going on our first Disney cruise (and, for most of us, our first big cruise ever) and I (the planner) am looking for ways to make this a special trip. I will stick to magnets and warn the little ones against stickering their rooms. They'll have to stick to stickering us - we're all used to it, anyway.

Please also ask DCL guests to kindly refrain from "acquiring" magnetic door decorations from someone else's cabin door. Over the last eight cruises, we've yet to finish a DCL cruise with the same door decorations that we started with.

That's terrible! I can't believe someone would take your decorations. I'll have to bring doubles for our doors. Thank you for the warning, though I'm sorry you had to experience it!

Same plea from me. Spread the word, and maybe the TA's here can provide a little monograph about the whole door magnet subject to their clients.

They were re-painting a LOT of doors on our cruise last week! Mine was a mess, but it looked more like grey and dirty, not messed up finish. Supposedly there weren't any empty outside cabins, so they either mis-represented that or they were painting doors of cabins with guests staying in them as well as empty ones.

We had some door decorations but with all the excitement of our first Disney Cruise we forgot to buy "stick-on" magnets!! I was talking to our our cabin steward about this and he told me to go see guest services and wouldn't you know it; they gave me about half a dozen stick on magnets. My DD was so excited to decorate our door.

As a TA I always provide personalized door signs for my clients and they are always attached with magnets. I also advise the clients NOT TO use any adhesives on their doors or inside of their rooms.

I guess we've been lucky. In 4 Disney cruises, we've never lost any.
Well, make that 3. First cruise we didn't decorate our door. I thought it was silly until we got on the ship and noticed that someone's decorations close to the elevator lobby helped us keep our bearings between port and starboard. Dh even admitted it makes it easier to spot our room.

I've bought magnet sheets from
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER
and here for larger quantities

This is good to know. I am new to cruising I have been to WDW 5 times but not on a cruise. I hope to go on one in May 2012. I will have fun creating a magnet for the door I love art and am studying animation.

Oh, now that is just wrong and NOT in the Disney spirit!
I'm so sorry that happened to you, especially on more than one occasion!
