On a recent trip aboard the Magic me and the family decided to catch a mid day movie in the buena vista theatre. I had just made myself an ice cream float when we decided to go to the movie. Well the movie had just started when we arrived so it was completely dark and my eyes had not adjusted and I missed a step. I caught myself and didn't fall but my hand that was holding the float flew up along with the full cup of ice cream and soda. I'm not sure but I don't think anyone saw me as I was walking behind my dh. After we got the extended family settled in to watch the movie I turned to my dh and let him know that I didn't feel like watching the movie after all and we left. As we walked out of the theatre I said I needed to use the restroom first. Dh turns and looks at me and asked "what happened to you?" I replied "nothing, why? It seems I had ice cream all over my head.

It has now become my absolute favorite cooler to bring everywhere!

We also may have more coconut cups for the kids than we actually bought drinks in......

The stuff people will throw away... I'm tellin ya!!!

You all are now going to be checking around trash cans I assure you!!!

After losing my dear mother in law to brain cancer at 63, and 10 months later dear father in law to a heart attack at age 67 - my family decided we needed a lot of Magic. So we took a much needed vacation and spent a week at WDW followed by a week on the Magic EC in Jan 2011 trip. The week on the cruise we spent with good friends of dh's from the military who had a ds a year older than my dd and they had a dd a year older then my ds.
In AP on the last night (we had late seating), I encouraged my ds 3 1/2 to eat all his pasta and I would buy him the big toy he wanted from the store. He is not a good eater and every night the servers would bring our friends daughter 2 meals and she would eat like a pro while ds would not eat hardly anything. So on the last night, I encouraged him - eat all your pasta and you will have the big toy! I can't recall now what the toy was...so ds was so excited. He ate every piece of macaroni. The server commented how proud he was, we all laughed and cheered him on.....UNTIL.....ds started to vomit. Projectile vomit..
all the macaroni all over. EVERYWHERE. on his clothes, on me, on his plate, on the table cloth...I was mortified. The adults hadn't even been served meals yet. Our friends thought it was so funny. DS was fine, he just ate too fast. I felt horrible. Worse was our luggage was put out and already gone, all we had was our clothes for the next day.
I scooped him up and headed for the stateroom. The server followed me wanting to make it right, asking to sent my meal there but I was already racing out. What happened after I left, I know because our friends took lots of pictures. Men in suits and helmets came to the table; SPACE MEN they looked like - biohazard suits came to the table to clean up the mess and replace the linens, the dishes and all the silverware. Then they reset the table and all the food. Apparently no one from the other tables even flinched.
DS and I cleaned up, we went straight to the store and bought the toy, and then headed back to the dining room - I could barely look at anyone. But the servers were so happy to see us, they welcomed ds and quickly brought food out and acted like nothing happened.
The kids still talk about the "Space Man" at dinner.....
And I never use bribes for eating anymore - learned my lesson
Sorry but that is hilarious. So glad DS was ok and had only eaten too fast. The RP was about 2 minutes away from seeing the "space men" last week on my cruise due to some serious sea sickness. But that's another story.

I'm glad someone else confessed to this.....now I will also. I didn't want to put them in our beach bag because I was afraid they would scan it so......I had DH put them in the pockets of his swim shorts.

Ahhh....I feel better now knowing I'm not the only one that goes on DCL without their kids. DH and I took a 3 night last week but we didn't tell them we were going anywhere. They weren't home all week so we didn't tell them anything. Ignorance is bliss......

Hubby went diving on our last cruise and took a stateroom towel with him to the dive site, in his diving bag. He brought his own flippers, mask etc with us on the trip. When I was unpacking when we got home I found said towel in a side pocket of the bag :/ I was horrified!! Luckily it's just a generic white towel, so it's not expensive. But I always look at it and go ahhhh that came off the Magic

Oh man, I do this all the time at Rays baseball games! People leave the nice souvenir cups behind at their seats, and the cute (and sturdy!) plastic bowls shaped like baseball caps w/ the team logo that they serve ice cream in. I have a service for 8 now lol. So embarrassing for my kids as I would collect them on our way out of the Trop. I would have been all over that cooler you found!

Now, I have to start all over w/ this next cruise.

You are much better than I!! In our guest bathroom I keep a basket with things we bring back from traveling . . . soap, shampoo, etc, etc. . . our guests have often told us how they use them . . .

A friend recently started collecting things for homeless in our area, and I asked if she would like a bunch of these to give them. . .

I was going through all my stash. . . still have some from our first cruise in 2004. . . but I was unable to give away anything Disney!! I started having heart palpitations just thinking about it . . .

OMG.....that is an awesome find!

I was stalking the excursion meetups on our MR cruise April 2012 because I wanted one of those coolers so bad. My Mom had purchased one the year before on the Dream but I didn't (and regretted it). But they didn't have them on that cruise so I had to wait until we were back on the ship last Sept to finally get one.

Had I only known that I needed to keep an eye on the trash cans instead

OK..I'm making a mental note to check all trash cans before buying any souvenirs on the Fantasy this month.

Totally guilty of the exact same thing. If I could figure a way to get it off the ship, I'd steal that chair in a heatbeat.

You can ask at the bar or your room attendant. They will give you as many as you want.

You are joking right? I can't imagine not helping if I could, especially if it hasn't been used in almost 10 years.
