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
WELCOME!!!

you chose a strange thread to make your debut post...most people are full of questions first!

doesn't matter....we are glad to have you aboard!

That's a nice plan.

I guess I should admit along with you...I wasn't young (38) and I cried as we we were introduced and stepped aboard the Wonder this past April.

And again when my 3 yo daughter ran into her first Princess (Tiana).

I'm posting this now while people are "discussing" something different.

Maybe no one will notice.

*SPEAKING REALLY REALLY FAST SO YOU CAN'T UNDERSTAND* I reused my #2 Boarding Pass on our second cruise. Whew.

I was going to take that one to the grave. But I felt it was a good time to confess

Now you can't do that. Back in the old days they handed out the same cards. I didn't plan to keep it, they just didn't ask for it back on our very first 4 day, I just kept it with my navigators.

It is safely secured in my scrap book now. I did NOT sell it on EBAY

Jeez, I feel like I took one for the team, stay on topic. Love this thread Don't flame me. I can't take it from my daughter (was 10 min late picking her up today~oh the horror) then come here on a fun thread and get it.

I am just the opposite - I find ideas, make them and then do not sign up for the FE exchange because I don't want to take the time to deliver then. I will pack some of them and then just drop them in random FE's if I see them in normal travels on the ship. I have a good size box full of assorted gifts ready to go - lol.

I have wanted to wear pjs to the dining room, but been afraid to (people would flame throw).

I don't really like the towel animals except the monkey and it bothers me when they use my stuff on the animals. We do save the monkey and let him hang in the room. The others are quickly turned back into towels.

I also hoard the night time chocolates. I even got the room steward to leave extras on our last trip. Yum.

I cry on boarding. I cry when I leave. I cry when I see the castle.
I just always thought everyone did that.

There was one lady last cruise who did this every night. To each their own.

Chocolates. With no ingredients list.
So none of us eat them between allergies, etc. I've always left a neat little stack on the dresser by the closet.

I have been wanting to do a formal night. I have only been on quick three night cruises and couldn't justify more clothing and accessories when I was able to use a carry on. I think I am trying to make up for my missed prom. I defiantly would have looked better in a formal many years ago but I still want the experience and it would be a bonus to be with a guy I really like.

I totally agree!!! I'm thinking about skipping the MDRs in November. I'd rather be sitting next to the pool with a beer and a slice of pizza. The MDR food isn't THAT good. IMO
