DVC Member Magnets

We were on the Jan. 6 cruise and had a DVC magnet on our door - the lifesaver "welcome home" one but it was dated 2012. I went to the desk and said we were hoping for a 2013 one to add to our collection and he gave me a new one ---- it's a wooden ship's wheel but only says Welcome Home Member and the DVC symbol but they no longer have dates on them. I guess we'll be seeing these same ones for a long time.......Debbie

We've never had a problem with stolen magnets or FE. That said, we use a zip-tie on our FE.... and there was this one time when we were leaving at the same time a mom was admiring our door with her very young little girl and as they started to walk away the little girl (not knowing any better) snatched one of the "minnie heads" that bordered the edges of our door. Mom quickly took action and told her to place it back on the door that they were only to look at. Of course, I told her to go ahead and take it. I just adjusted the ones outlining the door so the missing one wasn't noticeable. We passed by their cabin often. We knew where it was because of the very small "minnie head" on it. So, if you lose a magnet, just assume it was snatched by a sweet little girl/boy who just didn't know any better rather than by the teen just out to create mischief. Maybe you'll feel better about its loss that way.

You have such a good attitude lol I'm more the, "Get off my lawn you dang hooligans!" type of person.

So yea, get off my FE and door magnets...hooligans!

Hi All,

Do most people use zip ties to fasten their FEs to the fish?

Thanks!

I don't know about "most", but we do.

It isn't nice to take things that are clearly left as decorations, and it is terrible if people do it just to be mean like the teens who documented their rampage.

But would you leave other valuables unattended? I know people pay a lot for the personalized FEs, but would you leave a $20 towel unattended on the deck, or an ipod on a table?

I was going to bring some of our Disney magnets on our first cruise, including one I've had for 14 years with the Disneyland castle and a picture of my then 3 year old on her first trip to Disney. When I heard the magnets sometimes disappear, I decided to leave it at home because while it only cost $5, it means something to me. We use an inexpensive tote bag decorated with Mickeys for a FE and our magnets are mostly FE gifts we've collected. Some of the bottlecaps don't stick well, and I'm sure more than one has fallen off and been kicked down the hallway. In fact, on the Wonder, a lot of the magnets weren't strong enough to hold through 10 years of paint, even on the inside of the door.

FE and decorating the doors is supposed to be a fun game. If it stops being fun, don't do it, because who wants to spend their vacation worrying about theft or coming back to the cabin and getting made about missing magnets.

Just an FYI... If anyone is worried about theft, decorate the inside of the door instead. No one will steal them and you can still enjoy them.

I made magnets that are not necessarily for keeping, so I don't mind them being taken, but I do have issue with the gifts that others put effort into making for another person. Rudeness...still no cure

So far we've only had dvc magnets on our cruises. The first cruise, my kids were younger, I had put their magnets above the circle so it looked liked a Mickey head and one was stolen They were pretty Upset) I got it replaced and packed both away.

Making some this year!
