Yes, there are laundry rooms on decks 2, 6 and 7. The one on deck 7 has the most machines. You swipe your Key To the World card in a reader to make them work.

The laundry room, because it is limited machines, can run quite the backup. We had issues with folks sticking their stuff in and then not coming back to take it out which backs up everyone so just plan your time accordingly.

We also found the dryers to be on the slow side and had to add more time. This was on the Wonder but I'd imagine the issues could be similar.

As far as laundry goes on Disney I have no idea... But we take woolite for the bathing suits and under clothes, the rest we just send out for washing and drying..

How much do they cost? Do they just add it on to your KTTW and room charge? We're on deck 8 so that should be easy!

It's annoying when people do that, but I have no problem taking their clothes and putting them on the washer while I wash mine. I'm going to try to keep the washing to a minimum and only if we run out of clothes.

The woollite is a good idea for the small things. I also way overpack underwear, I hate being uncomfortable!

Also, my TA sent me an email. He received my cruise docs and is forwarding them on to me along with a $50 gift card!

Yes you can put on your room key. I want to say something like $2/3 per load. Problem is....washer and dryers are stacked. No place to take a load out and set it so you can put yours in.

LOVE the FE! It looks great! And I absolutely love the idea about Disney recipes! I would have joined in on our FE had I known someone would be giving me some Disney recipes. Good thinking!

Also, the two times I went to the Laundry room, all of the washers and dryers were running. This was at night though, so not sure if it's less busy in the mornings/afternoons.

I was pleasantly surprised when we had no problems doing laundry the few times we've tried. Our cabin was pretty close so it was very easy.

I hope that I can get the recipe book done. I've only got 4-5 Disney recipes, but I'm thinking a dozen in the book. I have to get it done now! Along with my other TR!

Like I said, I'm going to try and pack enough so that we don't have to do laundry, but maybe for emergencies.

I have no idea how much luggage they allow you to take on. If we can each take two suitcases, maybe I can get enough for the week. Fran already has a couple outfits set out for me to pack, I on the other hand have no idea what I'm going to pack. I don't need to buy any new dresses for formal night, while I don't have anything as stunning as Corinna's (actually I do, but Fran told me that they were costumes and not suitable as formal dresses, I thought they were fine, they ARE ball gowns albeit 19th century, but still I thought they looked good. However it would have taken a whole suitcase for the petticoat! )

I'll go with knee length dresses for formal and semi formal night. Although I have a couple dresses that are floor length, but not sure if they would really be formal or even fit any more!

I need to get on this, but more importantly, I need to get on the recipe book!

Oh wow you're putting quite a few in there. If time runs out, i'm sure just one or two more would be fine. Heck! I'd be happy with three recipes!

OK that's good to know because I already have a few figured out. Maybe if I can't find my comb binder, I can just print them out on nice cards and tie them up with a ribbon. Perhaps I'm thinking too big! It wouldn't be the first time. I don't want to give away too much if any of my other cruisers are lurking here. I know at least one might be!

I will tell you I made one of the recipes last night and it was nummy! I really enjoyed it. I made a similar thing for Fran but not the same. I REALLY like this one!

There is no limit on how much luggage you can bring on, maybe I should tell you that though. Our limit is always due to airline baggage fees.

The 7 night and shorter cruises seem to be a little less formal than the longer 14 or 15 night cruises so you'll be fine. You'll see a full range of dresses during the night from casual to formal.

A few printed on nice cards would be great. The FE we've been in have been on a small scale primarily for the kids.

like i have said before i have never been on Disney, but the other lines you can carry as much as you want, the problem is finding places for your bags in your cabin.

dvid and I carry two large and one medium suitcase when we travel.. they all fit under the bad when they are pushed together to make a large bed..

If I were you, I would print them on 5X7's, maybe laminate them, and punch a hole in the corners and keep them together with Disney ribbon. I had seen some cute ribbon at Joann's fabric and Hobby Lobby before.

You will have to share this recipe after the cruise then!
