So let me get this straight.

If my family and I wash our hair each day using up the products Disney has provided (and we have paid for as part of our cruise fare), then we are doing nothing wrong.

But if we bring our own products onboard, use those, and then take Disney's home with us, we are somehow stealing, sending a bad message to my son, and/or doing an injustice to other customers????

Sorry, but some of these arguments make no sense to me whatsoever.

Not to go too far off topic, but - since I hear that they have changed the body butter to lotion in the staterooms, can you still buy the large tubes of the thick body butter on board? Love that stuff!

YUP! ITA!! Disney has HUNDREDS of number crunchers working for them . It is worked into the price of the cruise (people taking things home is more than factored in - for Hotels, Cruises, any trip for that matter).Their bottom line is MORE than covered.

I have a vanity drawer full of products I have collected from places we've stayed at (including DCL).
If they didn't want me to take them they wouldn't keep leaving new ones to replace the ones i've placed in my suitcase.

It's not like it's one of those gorgeous DCL pillows, those aren't included in my cruise fare and they'll bill me if I take one of those...

Seriously. If you can afford a Disney Cruise, you can afford to go to h20plus.com and buy some full sized bottles of the stuff (including the coveted body butter) when you get home to use all year long.

It's not that expensive.

Why would I do that? DCL let me have it...

I don't hog them and come home with half a suitcase of them, but I do grab the unopened bottles at the end of each day (no matter where I'm staying-cruise ship or hotel) so I can bring them home and donate them to my local VA hospital. The patients appreciate little luxuries.

Bah, enjoy the H2O as much as you want. Any hotel that uses nice stuff has hoarders. EVERY hotel and cruise line keepa that in consideration. It isn't a big deal. :-)

Maybe we should start a post to stop wasting Coke or they will replace it with a cheap brand

Is DCL using the grapefruit ones that are in WDW or still using the spa ones that smell like noxema. I like WDW's one's they are using now. They are okay for a short use.

I have the soaps & shampoos from every hotel, resort, cruise I've ever been to. And yes some of them are so nice they have filled up half my suitcase (only my small one). They make excellent gifts, come in handy when you have ti stay with the relatives, plus who knows when you will run out of money and have to use them as your only product!

I hAve worked for resorts where they do lower the quality of the product to save themselves money but they never had a contract like Disney has with H2O. But if ever Disney does scrimp then I am supplied;-)

seriously, I do take some home and the room attendant always knows and always leaves extra. i'm not holding a gun to his head and i'm pretty sure dcl knows people take some home. it can't be that big a secret.
I have booked cruises for my children which they will receive as a xmas gift and I plan to bring some home from my 'not to far away cruise' to put in a dcl xmas package i'm making up for them. as a pp said, when it comes down to paying a thousand plus a day, i'm pretty sure dcl will not bat an eye.
just my thought.
Sorry Tink, I'm actually serious about this one. But Meh, as others have said, I can see how other people would not see this as a big deal.

I'm sure the products are considered free/complimentary, but this is only to a point.

Now that you mention it though, I'm kinda sad that I didn't do a post about a crazed toiletries hoarder frantically running around the ship, last night of their cruise because "IT'S NOT ENOUGH!!!"!!!
