I've read through the thread with exhaustion ...

The policy I would like to see changed is that we go back to the concierge being a non-tipped position. We already pay a hefty premium for concierge service. I feel obligated to tip a decent amount, and we've never used them for anything "above and beyond."

I really can't think of any rules I would like changed on Disney.

As a non-smoker, a smoke free ship certainly would be nice, however I think Disney's smoking policy is well balanced.
The reality is, smoke free cruise ships have been tried and failed. And Disney's core audience, those age 18 to 40, are the fastest growing group of smokers in decades. Like tattoos, smoking is becoming fashionable again.

The issue came up last year on my Alaskan cruise on HAL. Spoke to a nice Eastern European family who honored the smoking restrictions, but said, such restrictions would be unthinkable.
And remember, cruise ships operate in an international community, and purposely flag their ships in nations other than the U.S. to get around U.S laws.

Yes in Seattle that is true. But the new smokers aren't generally smoking tobacco. The state officials here are busy hiring people to open state stores to sell cannabis. Not sure Disney is ever going to let you smoke cannabis on board.

In ADDITION to the no saving lounger rule: Someone with a tshirt that says "POOL MONITOR" or "CHAIR HOG MONITOR" that only has that one responsibility. Monitor chair hogs. Complete with a clip board, stop watch around the neck, a whistle and a digital camera - time stamped.

Okay, maybe not the whistle.

It seems that some of the demos and tours on these topics are available only to adults. I would like a rule that 16 and 17 year olds could attend non-alcohol day time events when accompanied by an adult.
Where do they draw the line? As soon as your 16 year old is allowed at adult activities, someone will want to bring their 15 year old daughter --- and her very mature 13 year old sister. At that point, you no longer have adult activities, which are nice for those looking to enjoy some time not, as you put it, "overrun by packs of teenagers."

Wow. Judgmental?

I don't infringe you, don't infringe me.
It would become just another rule that would crop up as a subject on the Dis that the mods would have to "lock" after a day or so

Everything else I can usually get my needs met, or I'll adapt.
Yeah I agree tatoos r a eveyday thing now people like that sicken me saying no tatoos to be shown get a life

Could not agree more. If DCL enforced the rules they have, some call them "guidelines" when they don't want to obey them, we would see far less threads like can my 17 yo get into the adult specialty dinning, can I wear shorts in the MDR, can my child swim in the adult pool if no one is around...
