I think we will bring ours and put some anti-bacterial pump soap in it. Maybe if they see enough of them in our cabins, they will bring them on board for everyone! LOL!

Actually, the first visit we made, we were given this recommendation by a CM. She said as long as it was a reuseable straw, it was fine. My autistic little girl can't use paper straws, because there is literally no straw left. she can't use the plastic straws because she chews them until they crack and swallow pieces. Her crazy straws with her Disney Toons on it goes with us everywhere. It's not some little cheap plastic straw, it's a souvenir straw. Losing the straw would be no different than losing a toy we bought at the shops. We have made 6 trips to AK and always come back with our straws.

This is a very good point that I don't believe many people would have thought of.

I actually ordered mine from Amazon.com. I don't have a Target in my town! I ordered $25 in other stuff to get the free shipping.

Target online doesn't have them. However, they did give you the option to check your store location for stock on hand. I was going to go to pick it up today, but did the same thing and ordered on Amazon! Great minds think alike! LOL

I love the excuse of ordering more to save money! My husband doesn't buy it, but I still say it!

I am packing a plastic waterproof cell phone case! With my luck, I'd drop my phone in the toilet when I go to put my daughter on! It will store my Key Card & Photopass! It will be great by the pool, too!!

I have a ton of address labels that different charities send me...I bring some with me to use on the resort delivery forms and postcards. I also carry them in my wallet to use for disponsable camera developing and anything else that requires my address. A great time saver.

Some really great ideas! I've seen the idea about labels before, I just have to remember to get them out. It's automatic to just fill in the forms.

Why don't husbands get the concept of saving money at sales? Lol!

That's a great idea!! I used them last time for our things in case they get lost, but to fill in forms, etc!! Fabulous!

These labels are also great when you go to trade shows or places you fill in door prize forms!
