I like the looks of that backpack -- found the red drawstring style tough to find things in.

CC gifts

Oh that makes me so happy to hear. I gave away so many of the red bags and never ate the rice crispy flip flops. Cannot wait to get mine. Thanks for the good news.

So funny, because there is a thread just started as well asking about the CCay club gifts, and if they are the same for the Gold and Platinum as they are for Silver... I am now really curious! We leave next Sunday for a 4 night and our first as Gold, so very excited to get something different! I agree! Those blue and red flipflops were very cute, but toooo sweet and I am just looking forward to something new!

My thoughts exactly!! I love Rice Krispie treats, but I have thrown away the ones from the last 2 or 3 cruises. They looked like they had been sitting in a warehouse somewhere for 3 or 4 years!!

Thanks very much for sharing. This is great news. I was hoping they would have new gifts soon. IMO - they should introduce new gifts every year due to the high number of cruisers that cruise each year. We have two of the red/black round bags and no one ever ate the rice krispy treats. The current water bottles were ok, but that style sweats a lot. Our favorites are the older ones that were blue with the flip up top. Great size and nice grip with the blue liner. The backpack will be a nice change. This is something the family will use throughout the year.

We don't cruise for the gift, so whatever they provide is a nice treat and appreciated. This will be our 5th cruise, so we will be Gold next time.

Wow I am amazed by some of the replies here. People should be happy to get anything. The fact is they don't have to give us anything as a return guest. I never get a welcome back gift at WDW. I am happy with whatever they provide since they don't have to give me anything. If this post has upset you, I am sorry. Just expressing my opinion just like others here have.

I don't know that I am all that happy to hear that they have changed the CC gift. IMO they have cut corners on this one. somewhat disappointing....
It is a free gift, they can do what they want. Be happy they even give you anything since they don't have to. I think the vast majority of people are glad for the change. The water bottles were crappy and scratched up and we not insulated...the rice krispies were gross....but in the end its nice to see a change.

If you had never gotten the old stuff...maybe someone on here has some extras they could give you.

I agree with you, but at the same time the percentage of people that cruise once a year is actually pretty small. It seems like a lot with all the repeat on the DIS but in the end we are the minority so it wouldn't be worth it to disney to change.

What I think they should do is have something different on each ship...and put the ship name on the stuff and such.
