Where can you buy DCL Robes?

I've found DCL terrycloth robes and knit fabric/waffleweave robes, but is it possible to buy the very soft, high quality DCL robes that are found in the Concierge staterooms?
Thanks

Do you know anyone staying in a concierge room? You could ask them to take them from the room. Disney will charge for missing items, but obviously some can't be bought through the normal channels

The gift shops on the ships sell robes, but they are not as nice as the ones in the concierge suites. I haven't seen those sold anywhere.

We purchased the romance package on our cruise in 2008; and two DCL robes were part of the package. It's a waffle weave robe tho. We wore them to the pool and to the spa and the CMs in the spa asked where did we get them, because they had the DCL logo embroidered on them. LOVE mine.

We stayed in a concierge suite and purchased two. They were brand new in the bag. A bit pricey though, $200 each...but I LOVE them.

I wanted the shower curtain from AKV for DDs bathroom and asked numerous CMs where to buy and finally got the answer that they weren't sold to th general public. DDs friend suggested taking it and said "They'll charge you so it's not like you're stealing". Although I was tempted, I didn't want anything like that attached to my name. Or to send the message to my kids that taking something that wasn't mine was ok.

Did you purchase from the Concierge CMs? Were these robes just like the ones in the concierge stateroom? Thanks!

Can anyone purchase one or do you have to be sailing at concierge level to be able to do so?

By the way, these robes sound similar in plushness to the robes in the rooms at Aulani (in the DVC room I stayed in). I almost bought one. They were $180. I've worn 3 different DCL robes and none were even close in comfort. I've never stayed in a concierge room though.

We were on the Dream in fall 2011 and the robe I bought in the gift shop was the same robe they had in the concierge room. Double layer with a soft terrycloth like inside and a smooth outer. Super comfy and saw more then one woman wandering into the concierge lounge while wearing one.

I love mine and use it daily. Has held up really well. At one point I figured I might grab another on the Fantasy this spring but mine is still in perfect shape so no need. $180 sounds really high though. I thought it was closer to $120. I remember getting home and seeing a very similar robe for about the same amount of money online. Sans DCL logo.

This is the company that makes the DCL robe:http://www.candhrobes.com/cgi-bin/li...sponsor=000201

It looks like the robe that we had on the Wonder, but I can't say for sure.

You can find the kids' robe for sale at the Disney store.
