I also bring home a couple or so of the shampoo/conditioners so that on those "rotten day all over" I can come home use them and relax thinking of calmer times.

I dare say that H20 is enjoying having the "free" advertising of their product associated with the Disney name.

Also, a few years ago while staying at one of the WDW All Star resorts I went to the front desk to ask about purchasing extras of the little round bath soap with the Mickey sticker, the Mickey shampoo/conditioner. They said they were complimentary and why was I asking to purchase. I wanted the individually wrapped rather than a packaged set to take home to give to our local homeless and domestic violence shelters so the children would have something "special" for them. They looked up my reservation and said they would have some extras deliver to my room before we checked out later that week. 2 days later I had a sack on the bed with an amount equal to double the number of days we were staying. They include a note saying there was no extra charge as these type items were always complimentary.

When I got home I wrote the manager of the resort a thank you letter for the extras and that the shelters had been thrilled to get something special for the children. I included the information of the shelters. Heard from the shelters a couple of months later than they each got a "goodie box" with more soaps, shampoo/conditioners, stickers and pens to hand out.

Yes Disney is big on marketing and making money but they are also generous.
That is an awesome story!

BTW, Ulta carries the large tubes too. (8 oz.) Occasionally they have a buy 2 get 1 free sale.

I really can't believe this thread is still alive.

Yah you can take the shampoo but where's your self respect? They sell the shampoo at the store. Justify your actions however you like. There's free food at the buffet you could take some of that stuff home to.

Yeah, CBP's agriculture specialists and dogs will definitely sniff out the lamb chops and steak in your carry bags, but I've never heard of anyone smuggling toiletries...for those of you who like the toiletries, enjoy them. Moderation in all things, right?

Don't know if you're implying that was me, but it was not. I realize that this is a difference of opinion and most don't see it as an issue. I simply noticed recently that there are a lot of posts (a lot of them in the DCL confessions thread) of people purposely draining the stocks of their room to get free replacements, to deplete to get more, ad nauseum.

Like it or not, this will affect the cost of cruising in the long run. But, as my last post stated, I will just have to agree to disagree with most on this point.

No, it won't affect the price of cruising at all. They have already factored in how many little bottles people take with them and how many are used each cruise. Disney GIVES these to us, knowing full well people use them AND take some home.

Your opinion about the morality issue is just your opinion, and I respect you for having it. Your statement about it increasing the price of cruising is 100% incorrect.

i don't think epcotatnight was implying it was anyone in particular. i think he just thought what i thought when i saw it. it was a first post from someone with the tag 'railagainst'. if i was to feel the need to actually open an account it would not be so i could make fun of someone. it would be to ask a question, agree with pp's, something other than a pointless, no answer thread such as if its okay or not okay to take shampoo. i found that post amusing to.
don't take offence, i think that there will never be 'one' answer to this. your right, we will just have to agree to disagree.

While my store does carry the H2O line, it does to have the same products as DCL uses. I was just in there last week looking for it. I order from the website (and ask for extras from the ship too).

It's interesting which subjects bring the lurkers out.
