magnets disappearing

I know people make their own magnets with their family names on it, etc... Do those ones "Walk" as well? That's terrible that people would do that, though I am sure it's probably teens thinking it's funny. Still!
We are thinking of making some for our first Disney Cruise and I like to design, so I figured I'd have our family name on them in hopes that no one could take them and put them on THEIR door atleast. It'd be pretty obvious!
I do like the idea of "This magnet stolen from room # __). That's great!

In 5 Disney cruises, 4x on the Magic, once on the Wonder, we've never had magnets stolen. I'm sure it happens but probably not as often as it sounds like here. Last time, the only one messing with our magnets was my BIL turning them all upside down.

That's good to hear. I guess people talk more about the negative things to watch out for more just in case.
Glad to hear you didn't have any "walking" magnets!
Now I just have to design ours! Yeah!!!

Magnets

That's what I did on our cruise, just put up magnets. I didn't want to tape anything to the door. Now I'm glad I didn't. Althou, I did see other passengers taping postcards & other cute stuff to their door. Thanks for the heads up! I even told me travel agent about it & she's spreading the word!

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.
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 for sharing!

Remember it's always best to put your cabin number on the back, we use "This magnet stolen from 7036"
That's a good idea.....I think I might use something like, "If found elsewhere, please return to cabin #____"

I am new to DIS. I am having a hard time finding the info on FE and I would like the count down time lines that you have. I am a little crafty but would like directions on how to make the FE. Also where do you find the images used for the door magnets and personalized things? Any Help?
I will be going on my 2nd cruise in June 3012. I know its early but I'm a planner and my kids love to do crafts as well

I would guess less than 10% of doors are decorated.

It also helps identify your cabin when you're coming in late from the Adult Only areas especially first time cruisers

We didn't decorate for our 1st cruise but I did for the 2nd one. My dh thought it was corny and said, "You're not really gonna put that c**p on our door, are you?"
By the next day he admitted it made it so easy to find our room, esp since our door was visible from the elevator lobby so we knew immediately if we made a wrong turn and went starboard instead of port, fwd instead of aft, etc.
4 cruises later, he now helps me tip toe around decorating doors for others in our group to surprise them.

We are new to the entire idea of cruising, let alone on a Disney cruise. Does everyone decorate their doors? And what is FE exactly???
