I don't like the H2O products either. I get them and then put them into my "go bag" for decon/disaster team at work or our guest room (which people get really impressed.).

I guess I'm too late

I have never been on a Disney cruise, or any for that matter, and this is my first time on a Disney forum, or any , for that matter. I have however, been to DL and WDW several times, we are going to DL this weekend. I get 'looks' from my family for bringing home cups, mickey head plates form the child's menu(I have no young children). I either ask for them or 'find' them wherever someone else has left them. One of my fav is a plastic wine glass from DCA. I have complete sets. When we stayed at the Saratoga, I took all the paper plates home with me. We also self- toured the Grand Floridian (did not stay there) and asked for some of the shampoo, etc from the carts, and took a few extra. I was so happy to find this thread because my husband thinks I'm nuts.It's nice to know others think the same as I do. We are going on our first cruise together in Nov out of Galveston and I don't expect to change much before then. I will continue to bring back as much of whatever souveniers I can find, acquire, etc. I am not above dumpster diving. People throw away the most useful items! As far as the item in the stroller, all I can say is we all have our own standards. What I have done, someone else may not approve of, and vice versa. This is not a judging site, but a sharing site. I am happy to be here. And can't wait for my cruise experience

I don't like the H2O products for my hair, but I LOVE the body butter!

I do horde them though.

I have a new confession (to try and keep the thread going) that seems to get weird looks when I do it each cruise - I don't like wearing my bathing suit onto the ship on embarkation day, so I just bring it packed and then change into it in the bathroom by the pool. I actually don't know why this gets weird looks - I DO go into the stall, for Pete's sake - but each and every time I always get some weird glances as I walk out with my clothes in hand and a suit and cover up on.

I'll confess: I was going to participate in the FE group on our last cruise, but the idea of making a FE & presents for everyone stressed me out so much that I dropped out! Too much pressure to make something cute!

I confess the same! I really wanted to participate in the FE exchange but just couldn't think of something cute and then to make 20-30 of them and get them on the ship and then deliver them. it just became to much for me.

Yea. I've not done Palo or Remy either and don't have a huge interest. I don't think for me that it's really money as I like to eat meals with my family.

I bring back a few for our women's shelter who provide items to women and their children who have moved out suddenly and have very little to get started with. I figure the kids will like the "Mickey" stuff and can use some happiness in their lives. We don't bring back a lot though.

Never regifted to other FEs, but I do leave a lot of the candy/snacks (unless they are regional to the gifter and we want to try something new) for the room host/hostess and youth activity cm's. We don't eat much candy and I don't want to bring it back.

WELCOME!

I posted earlier that I can't stand to throw anything away that has a DCL logo on it. Matches, pens and even those paper cover things they put on the glasses in the stateroom!

Stealing is bad. We all know that. But if you're going to comment on that one, why not all the other confessions of theft. Plates, glasses, H2O products, etc. I'm guessing those items had about the same dollar value as the items taken by that small child.

My guess is that you just didn't like the "tone" of that post. Maybe because the items were taken from a shop versus the dining room? Either way, sad reason to spoil the thread.
Word!...sorry if I took over the thread earlier, debbie downers irritate me..on to the confessions!

The fe regifting is HI-larious! What do people really do with all that stuff!!??!!

Wonder why? This is what my family and I have done on all cruises for over 20 years.... strange! Who wants to wear their bathing suit all day, through a flight, bus trip to the port, checkin, lunch, etc; with the possibility it might be raining!? not me

My confession is that I ignore what other people are wearing in the MDR's. I don't know if anyone is wearing shorts, tank tops, or slippers. I'm perfectly ok with wearing a suit while others around me dine in their robes.

P.S. Mods, please don't close.

Okay, I'll admit it. I was young and I cried while disembarking my first Disney cruise, which was also my very first cruise.

My confession:


I don't like dressing up for dinner. I do it in a tolerant way but I don't enjoy it. In January we spent the bucks and bought formals. Yes, BOUGHT. 3 tuxes and a gown. We had 3 cruises for this year so we figured it was a safe investment of the money. Riiiiight. We wore the formals for about an hour on our January cruise for pics. We then unanimously decided it wasn't worth the discomfort, changed back to shorts, & hit up Topsiders for dinner. We didn't even bother hauling the stuff on our May cruise. Hubby & I won't be bringing that mess with us in September and I highly doubt any of it sees the outside of my closet on Allure in November.

I don't like how long MDR dinners take. So many other things I'd rather be doing.

Let the flaming begin.

We have 2 food allergies in our family (one can be fatal), so most of the food/candy I find in our FE we can't use. On each cruise we've taken, I've discovered FE's not on our Cruise sign-ups when I'm out delivering. I take note of these and drop our candy into those...
