Shall I reiterate?

Love my H2O



They will give me as much as they want me to have, I don't ask them for extra, I take what they leave and they replace it.

Thanks Disney

Cruise director makes it clear "Don't take the red pillows, you'll be charged at the end of the cruise"
Ok, not taking the red pillows, I will however take the H2O that you so generously left in my room for me to use AT MY LEISURE, whether that be on the cruise, at my next hotel, or at home.

I must be the only person who never gets a stateroom hosts that leaves me extras. Ever. I've gotten to the point (twice now) where I needed to call down to housekeeping for extras as I'm stepping into the shower bc I didn't notice that I've already run out.

It was so bad that I literally had no bar soap to use, and DH had to prop the door open and ask our host guy for some straight from his cart.

I agree! We all have different opinions, and that is part of what has made the world what it is today.

Bug, I completely agree with you. People who hoard or feel they are entitled to something just because it is put in their room as a nicety simply have a different mentality than others including myself. I like the products but typically use my own from home. By no means have I ever thought of stashing the products so that they could be replaced for me to continue stashing and finally bring home a bag full of shampoo, conditioner and body wash. It seems that those that feel the need to load up on toiletries to bring home because they are "included" in the price of the cruise are the of the same mind set of those that do extreme couponing. If I collect lots of coupons and can get something cheap or gasp, free, you should take it. Our society needs to understand that there is much waste that happens and costs get driven up when everyone takes things they consider free or complimentary....free maps, free toiletries, free sugar packets at the restaurant etc. please enjoy and use while on board, but please don't load up a bag of toiletries. It just isn't mature or classy.

please let me clarify that i DON'T take things just because they are free. if i can't use it i don't take it. if i can use it and its free or complimentary i do and will. there is no waste to what i do and i doubt there is waste to anyone else who does this.
your welcome to your opinion but please do not judge me. if you don't want to take then don't and i promise you i will not waste a thing. you can keep thinking i'm not mature or classy, i'll keep using the 'free' shampoo.

If they didn't want me to have them they wouldn't keep leaving them, would they?

It's a little nicety after i've paid upwards of $3k to be on the ship for 7 nights, so yeah, the small shampoo, conditioner etc that gets left in my room (probably totalling retail $35USD) gets to come home with me. And I would buy H2O except that the cost to have this stuff posted to Australia is ridiculous.
It doesn't get wasted when I get home, it gets used, and as long as they keep leaving them i'll keep taking them.
It isn't mature or classy? meh Do you run a charm school?
Get a grip people.


(I also take the headphone's on flights if they're free, I take the pretzels, 5 packets they gave my son last time, I take the complimentary toothpaste and toothbrush)

GASP, i'm really, really lacking in maturity and class

You know what is mature and classy though? Making broad, sweeping judgments about people based on how many bottles of shampoo they take.

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.
Not to mention DCL gets this stuff for basically free. It is H2O that has an increased cost. Disney is not buying it because they love us. H2O is placing it to get you hooked

Exactly! Classy people don't resort to name calling.

I'm pretty sure Disney makes up what it loses on sample sizes with what they charge for full-size bottles! Really, shampoo probably costs pennies to manufacture!!!

This thread is flippn hilarious. Wonder if DCL/WDW will start charging my family more bc DD and I both have long thick hair and use a bottle each/day?!?! Am I still within their proper consumption parameters?

If it is being used, it is not being wasted. If someone uses a small bit, and it gets thrown out-wasted. If someone takes it home and never, ever uses it-wasted. Although I used to keep the old Mickey soaps in packages that you could stack and there was a picture of Mickey on the bathroom counter as a decoration. (we did eventually use it, though!)

Is this a known fact?

I have worked for several large hotel chains all using name brand amenities and they are all paid for by the hotel and probably more expensive then you would think.

Very good point. No matter what side you are on, nobody knows for fact if or how much Disney pays for he extra amenities.
