Maybe Disney considers the pilfered toiletries as marketing materials. I know every time I use the lotion the smell of it makes me want to book another cruise.

My DW is the toiletry hoarder. Perhaps that comment belongs in the "confessions" thread.

The shampoo / conditioner isn't such a superior product BUT its really nice to use it and the smell takes me right back to a great DCL cruise memory. Memories are very strongly linked to our sense of smell.

I can't believe the ruffled feathers I'm seeing in this thread...as if DCL is going to be hurting financially due to people taking home some of the H20 products to the point they'd have to raise the cost of the cruise to compensate.

Come on folks, let's use a little common sense here...DCL factors all of this in, and they know how popular the little vials are; they have no issue with folks taking them home, none.

Take them, and enjoy them, Disney knows all about this, and they simply don't care.

We put them in our guest bath so our guests will be encouraged to take DCL cruises. Free marketing for them

Now if only we ever had any guests over....

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


Likewise, you can only use the postcard if you plan on mailing it from the ship. That pen? Don't dare take it off either, even if the CM at guest services tells you to "keep it and take another." You probably misunderstood and you are putting him/her in a bad position.

I thought I was the only one that did that LOL

Well they are cheap gifts to give co-workers. However a few co-workers after the third cruise were honest with me and said they have thier own special shampoo. So this cruise, I didn't weigh down my luggage with any Disney Cruise Line bath amenities.
But I figure the price of the cruise includes these items.

I just used the shampoo and conditioner this morning and I love smelling it. I have the lotion on my desk at work. Yesterday I went to the Disney outlet to buy the shower gel but they didn't have any, only the conditioner at $18/12 oz. Too much.

If DCL cared, they'd put out a certain amount at the beginning of the cruise and not provide extras during the cruise. They provide all you want. My daughters and I can use a tube per day as we all have long hair while a family of 3 guys might have a tube of shampoo for the entire cruise. We asked for extra lotion on the last day and our host left 6 (yes SIX) tubes - did she think we were going to use 6 in one night? I don't think so.

I don't understand people taking it to give to the shelters. Give the Holiday Inn soaps and shampoos away but keep the DCL for yourself.

Maybe cost is an issue when people take excessive amounts. If it wasn't, why did they stop providing the body butter?

Thats a 5 week trip including staying in hotel accommodation and a 7 night cruise.

I love getting home at the end of my working week and my DH has cleaned up and put out fresh towels and put a set of these sitting on top of my freshly laundered towel

I can always pretend

That's sort of a moot point. It's a little like saying that if you can afford to cruise concierge then you should be able to afford to buy your own drinks instead of drinking the free ones they pass out to you during the cocktail hour. (Or whatever it's called - says the person who cruises quite comfortably and happy in steerage class thankyouverymuch.) Anyone on a Disney cruise can afford shampoo by why in the world would you not take the free stuff they keep putting more and more and more of in your room?

Also if it's not that expensive then it's not big hardship for Disney to provide it.
