The size limit is actually larger than what's posted. As long as the bag can go through the scanner, it's good. So if your duffle is slightly larger, no worries. Remember that alcohol in checked luggage will be removed and given back to you at the end of the cruise, so don't put any in those suitcases being checked! And anything that comes in a commercial can or bottle such as those ordered for room service is charged. They do not send fountain pop or juice you can get on Deck9 to your room.
Thanks!

My organizer is actually on a hanger, with 12 pockets on each side. Never been on a Disney cruise before. Are their wall hooks in either of the washrooms to hang it on?

Just make sure you're not taking anyone's float!

Joining rooms less soundproof?

I don't know if you would call this a secret perse, our dining family who we were paired with did not ask for a joining room (they came by themselves) but they randomly got one where there is a door, locked all the time, between them and the room next to them.

They said they could easily hear the other party. Whereas both times we've cruised, we did not hear our neighbours at all.

We had joining rooms and never heard a sound. We weren't even sure anyone was over there. We also had the laundry directly next to us on the other side and never heard a thing. In fact, unless we opened the door to the hall, it was silent.

Was there someone there though?

Our friends said they heard the same wakeup song every morning. Burned into their memory, lol.

We had a connecting room. We did hear the other family a couple of times, but it wasn't too loud. We have heard FAR more noise in the hallways and neighboring rooms of the Disney resorts than we heard from our Dream stateroom.

Love this idea! Glad my son is 'Xander.' My kids can take a picture in Xander's cabin!

We keep all in the cabinet for use during the entire cruise. We usually get a bowl of fruit too and use the empty bowl to dump our pocket stuff in one place when we come in the room.. Husband seems to misplace items, i.e. pins, lip balm, sun glasses if we don't have a designated place I can move them to.
Great tips - love especially the magnetic clips!

There is a hook in the hallway outside the the bathroom door but just before the sitting / bedroom. or you can hang it in the closet. I do not remember if there are hooks inside the washroom because it was convenient for me to have it outside.

The 'free' drink location is the soda fountain and coffee / hot water machine outside the buffet area on deck 9 (magic class) or deck 11 (dream class) There is also a fountain inside the buffet area which is available when the buffet is open.

Just seeking an opinion here because I can't make a decision: I ordered an embroidered pillowcase from etsy and will take it to be signed as a surprise for DD's birthday. It will be pink and black embroidery. I was thinking of having only pink and black markers included to match. Or, do you think the multi colors would be better? TIA!

We did the same with pink and purple markers. The problem we had was there were so many signatures that they became dull before they were done and many of the signatures are already faded. If you do this, and I think it looks really nice, I recommend placing multiple markers in the bag so there are no issues especially with the purple which is lighter.

Has anyone brought a picture frame matte for the characters to sign? It could be a fun matte around a formal night picture.
