We also have a smaller organizer that hangs on a string, not hooks, so maybe that would work on the wall hooks you mentioned.

Maybe the luggage/travel section of Target or other store would be a good place to look. We use the roll up bag for toiletries the came with our suitcases. It has one hook so we use it on one of the wall pegs in the room.

Mine is a shoe holder, for about 8 pairs of shoes (each shoe has its own pockets). It is of a light, nylon fabric. I'm sure I got it on the cheap at Walmart. It has a thick string (thin rope?) at the top for hanging, which means it doesn't hang as sturdily at an "over the door" shoe holder that has 6 hooks at the top to hang over your door.

Also, the pockets are not clear (like on my hook one), but that's not a big deal.

I'll bring it, b/c they sure are handy, but I'm not sure it will be helpful if there are not two cabin hooks to keep it from swinging side to side (i.e., hanging on one hook won't keep it sturdy).

Question Questions for best kept secrets

Does anyone have secrets to share about any of the Caribbean Islands like
St. Marrten and St. Thomas??
What are the best scenic places to tour on these islands with tweens?? (Not nude beaches!!!)
What tours will give you the best pictures for being a first time visitor to these islands??
What's the best tour on Castaway Cay??
Is there buses or cars to take you around the islands?? If so does anyone know how much it costs??
And What is the best thing to do on a 7 night cruise? is there any hidden Mickey's to find? What about secret passages?? We are first time cruisers on the DCL Fantasy and we are on deck 8. Where's the best place to sit or stand for the fireworks and do they have a area for the handicap when this comes around.
What about the picture cd on the Fantasy anyone know the price?

At the top of the main "Disney Cruise Line Forum" (the page where you found this thread), there is a thread for "Cruise Meets", just above "Trip Reports". On the cruise meets thread, there is a thread listing links to all the cruise meets threads by date/ship. Just locate your sailing, go to the link and post an introduction to your fellow cruisers!

If there is no meets thread established yet for your date, you can start your own on that page. But you should be committed to sticking it through to your cruise date, as sometimes the original poster will update the front page with lists of posters, fish extender info, etc.

Have fun!

You just do a search for your cruise and announce yourself and subscribe. The organizer will add you to the list.

You must do this on your cruise meet thread.

Towel Animals

I know that the DCL Fantasy also has the towel animal classes. I hear they are a lot of fun. What type of animals do you make? What is the charge for the class?
I also heard that if you talk to the steward that does your room sometimes they will get copies for you for the towel animals. Is this true?
I would prefer to take the class. But I guess there is a book you can buy also. Is that true?

Door Magnets - don't know where you can buys, but perhaps this might help you: there are several good hearted people on the DIS who will make you a design ("disign") for free. Then you can print it out either on special magnetic paper or - what I do - prin it on regular paper, then (with or without laminating), cut up some thin magnetic strips (from the dollar store, or just use old refridgerator magnets) and glue them onto the back of your sign. Voila! A fun project, not difficult.

I've sailed on Magic, Wonder and Dream - they always present a small cake to the honoree on the occasions you mentioned.

The class was free when I took it. It was a couple years ago, so I don't really remember what animals we made (there were several, one was a monkey). The cast member who taught ours was a lot of fun. I think there was a book in the shops that you could buy. At the class, they gave us a photocopied sheet with instructions for the ones we did in class, plus a few others.
