Great tips....maybe I missed it but don't forget an extension cord if you have a c-pap machine.

OP mentions bringing pirate clothes for pirate night. How piratey do people (particularly adults) actually get? I ask because DH and I have some pretty elaborate costumes that we'd love to wear , but I don't want everyone to think I'm completely nuts. Although, they'll probably figure it out anyway...

Dear FanofFigment,

(Whose fandom I heartily share!) You will see the full range on Pirate Night. Mainly, the kids dress more than the adults. However, you will see adults dress up. I'd say the majority wear costumes that look like your traditional "halloween costume in a bag." There are some who dress quite well. If you WANT to dress up, DO IT. The CMs will LOVE you for it. It is Your trip, enjoy it as you wish!

While I haven't hunted, I'm betting that there is more than 1 thread all about pirate night to whet your appetite.

There are PLENTY of nutty people on board, my family definitely included. We dressed up from the hats to the boots and we were definitely not alone. Some more elaborate than ours and some not, but I definitely did not feel out of place.

We assumed they would from reading these boards, but they didn't. We had to air dry after snorkeling and it got a bit cold on the boat back to the port! Other DCL "veterans" who were on our tender packed towels along. Was this since we had to tender to the island? When we docked at Cozumel and Castaway Cay, towels were provided as we walked off the ship.
I just wanted to highlight how incredibly useful this tip is. My wife packs heavy, especially the cosmetics and toiletries. The over-the-door shoe organizer was awesome. I didn't think it would end up being that great, but it made a WORLD of difference. Thanks everyone for this tip, it served us well.

So I said to my DW we need duck tape, what for she said, I told her why and she says that never happens. I'm betting all of the zippers just fall off out suitcases now. Thanks for the tips everyone.

As someone who has witness her knickers coming down the luggage belt BEFORE the rest of her luggage... I concur on the duck tape.

I have found MANY uses for the roll I pack.

We found that when we tendered for a Disney excursion, then towels were available in the meet room before we got on the tender. We didn't know that in advance, so we had already packed a couple from the pool in our back packs which they were quite happy with. Saved us having to add more stuff to our pack in the meet room. Did the same for a non-Disney excursion. Just remember to fetch them back!
