Magnets for Concierge Doors

I read on a post that stronger magnets are needed for Concierge Doors as they have a wood/plastic layer. I just want to do minimal - Mickey Ears over room # and individual ears with names. It was mentioned that Guest Services will provide magnets if asked. Does anyone know? I need to secure strong magnets. TIA for any info.

We were on concierge in February 2012. We had one Pirate Sword made out of wood with our family name and Dream 2012 printed on it. We then had a Mickey/Minni mouse head for each family member with their name on them. They were made out of wood and we had to apply heavy duty magnets. We received personalized magnets as part of our FE exchange. None of the magnets were were given would stick to the door. We placed them inside on the bathroom door. Hope this helps.

I think a nice alternative would be to get something to hang from the "SeaHorses" to the right of the door and place the Designs on it instead of magnets. You could even use hot glue to place magnets you already have on the hanging item made of cloth. When you get home you just peel the magnets off the cloth and then the dried hot glue off the magnet.

Nothing with residue. The Concierge teams all loved our post it notes. Tapes and glues will mar the doors, post it notes wont.
The entire back of the sheet isnt all sticky, just a couple of strips across the page. Think of the post it notes we all use, its the same design just on a larger sheet of paper.

Your stateroom hosts/concierge team aren't really going to say anything. They don't want to make your trip seem "unmagical". But DCL, when they made the request as to stateroom door decorations said:

we ask that guests no longer affix anything to their stateroom door utilizing any adhesive or tape.

By not saying anything and encouraging it, they are allowing it. When they saw it was actually post it notes, they thought it was perfect.

The problem came because people used duct tape and other tapes that were heavy with residue. As you can see post it notes remove CLEANLY.

So by allowing and encouraging it, they are granting permission.

If you dont want to do it, then dont. If you want to decorate your door, then do so but use something like post it notes instead of tape. Worked great for us on the last 3 cruises on the Dream/Fantasy.

The concierge are not going to say anything, they are in the service industry.

DCL has made this request:

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.



That's from the "Sticky: IMPORTANT!! All DCL cruisers please read!!" thread posted by Webmaster Pete over 2 years ago.

And its important to note that the Concierges allowed the post it notes. They didnt damage the doors at all, and its the same thing that was no the doors during the construction of the ship!


The big concern is the adhesives like the little gel dots and residue leaving things that damage the doors.

Sometimes people go overboard and prohibit anything not realizing that they have missed things that comply with the intent of the prohibition. Years later still allowing it only shows that the old policy was relaxed.

[QUOTE=PrincessShmoo;47381446]The concierge are not going to say anything, they are in the service industry.

They enforce the rules not allowing non concierge guests into the lounge, they enforce the rules that dont allow no concierge guests onto the sun deck, etc.......

They do enforce the rules that are important, even in the service industry.

Our neighbor in 12524 had a just married sign taped to their door with clear packing tape. It was up all cruise. This was on the 9/14/12 Fantasy. I like the idea of the magnetic FE.

And if there was damage to the door when taking down the tape, they would have been charged for it. That's why DCL asks that door decorations be magnetic.

Interesting. Didn't really seem to bother anyone from Disney, including our three concierge. How would the average cruiser know all these rules if they weren't privy to your knowledge?
