That's like the photography policy in the Walt Disney Theatre. On all but my latest Disney cruise, they allowed photos, but prohibited flash and video. I was fine with that, since I liked to take one or two photos just to help remember the day's events.

But recently, when I was on the Fantasy, DCL prohibited all video and photography. By doing so, it was probably easier for DCL to enforce.

I totally hear ya. I had just missed that somewhere in the rules of what we could or could not bring onboard. Took me by surprise. Would have never bought her one had we known. Learned something new on that cruise

We had a flight booked for June 9th that we used miles for and it had us fly Air Canada. We had the same problem. Luckily, United was wonderful in sorting it all out. They even let us cancel our three of our flights with no penalty.

Similarly, we only discovered this because we wanted to book this cruise. If we had just done our original Mediterranean cruise I don't know when we would have noticed.

I think it's great luck that you're finding this out ahead of time . It's a complete PITA, but imagine if you hadn't needed to check on this stuff? Now THAT would be bad luck. You should buy a lottery ticket.

Question: So going off of the prohibited list of items I just posted (balloon) I now see extension cords are prohibited. I have always used one for my CPAP machine for sleep apnea because a plug is not nearby the bed to make it work. Any idea what to use? Or do we just call Disney to put that request in with our distilled water for the CPAP machine? (Do they supply an extension cord?) Not a fan of sleeping on the floor to be near the outlet on the desk area.

I know people have told me before to have an extension cord, which I used both times on the Magic. Of course, not realizing until now that is a big no-no.

Might just call DCL tomorrow and ask.

hahaha - just searched DIS as I know there's always an answer... seems a thread was started a week or two ago about extension cords. Seems they are supplied for medical devices as requested.

I checked our other cruiseline we have two cruises booked with for 2013 and it's not a prohibited item with them, so will check with them on if one is supplied. I'd hate to not take one because DCL prohibits it, and then need it for the second part of our journey but then that cruiseline not supply one.

I read a few of the threads on the cords. I sure hope power strips aren't prohibited! We are taking a universal one since we'll be in several countries post cruise. Even if they were to take it with the intention of giving it back, I'm afraid I'll forget it. And I really want it for the cruise!

Question since this is my first cruise longer than 7 days: Does anyone know if I can schedule another Palo dinner on board beyond the one I have already signed up for? Chocolate Souffle two nights would be amazing.

Yes you can!!!
But you can also on cruises that are only 3 nights...

DCL will let you pre-book one Palo.
Once onboard you can schedule more Palo as you want 2 or 3 nights as long there is space left they will let you book it!!!!!

I don't see why you couldn't just add them anytime. Our TA said we could add them whenever we wanted to. I've just had the transfers on my reservation from the start, and she told me I could remove them at any time.

I think DCL want's them on in enough time to plan the number of buses they might need. Since we are still 80+ days away, you should be fine!

Just a quick update on the Palo group brunches. The first two groups are full. If anyone else is interested I will start a 3rd group. A reminder for those of you signed up for a group brunch, once DCL approves and confirms our group booking they will cancel any individual Palo Bruch reservations you have made. If you want to keep the group brunch and a individual brunch just plan on making another reservation once we board. With our number of sea days, I don't think anyone will have a problem getting additional Palo reservations.
