I read a book by Lee Cockerell and Disney as a whole leaves things out for guest souvenirs. Like the pens stationary etc. The expect it and the cast even got involved when Disney tried to put a stop to it. They expect the shampoos and soaps to go home with a guest. If you figure an average( I'm just making up a number. I could be way off) of 20 pillows let say that go home with a guest after each cruise x 4 ships, it gets expensive after a while to keep replacing them. Thats just pillows not counting glasses, ice buckets etc. Now if DCL made it known that more products were available at a given location things might be different or at least not as wide spread.


....Agreed with your post 1000%...........

Um, can someone tell me what the card says? Just off Dream on Sunday and never saw one. I can never fit anything extra in our bags to even consider palming anything (and our linen closet couldn't handle more towels, so we're good), but I am curious. On our last cruse I did notice that my 7 y/o had packed his stuffed toys in the laundry bag, but didn't know that we would be charged for it until I saw our cc bill. I would have appreciated a card that delineated changes for such items, as I was not sure about the whole thing. I wanted to return it on our Dream cruise but felt too embarrassed. Maybe next cruise, and get a credit for toward a martini tasting? Lol.

I don't remember the exact wordage but basically says if items are found removed from the stateroom your cabin will be charged for the missing items. I can't swear to it but I thought there was a few prices for certain items like robes pillows towels etc. Its about the size of a post card. I think I saw the one for our cabin sitting on the desk.

The card which appeared on the last night basically said anything missing from the stateroom will be charged to your credit card.

Although I'm sure they are including towels in this, I'm not sure how they can keep track of of the towels in a stateroom considering the towel animals that appear every night in addition to your regular bathroom towels.

I would be interested to know what kind of a charge was added for that. I am wondering if you feel it was up charged, in other words, were you charged more than the value of the bag?

When we were on the wonder, the laundry bag was $5 and it suggested that if we wanted one, we should ask our stateroom host or hostess for a brand new one instead of the used one in the room. We realized after getting off the ship that we still had $6 in room credit left (we won the DVC room credit) but didn't realize it or we would have taken one with us.

Towel

Well I called Disney Cruise line and told them.. the lady I spoke with was great and said there was no extra charges on my account and said thank you for calling and letting them know. I offered to mail back and she not to worry. But they do charge usually but nothing was missing from our room according to their records.

I don't remember it being that detailed. I thought it said something along the lines of "Please be mindful of items in your stateroom while packing. Items removed from the stateroom will be charged to your stateroom account." For us, it was a small tent card that was left on our bed with the Personal Navigator.

I honestly dont remember off hand, though I do remember seeing something that had prices on it for things like robes and towels. Could have been 2 separate cards.

DCL could have even changed the cards from when I saw it to when you saw it or vice versa.
