They did pillowcases for both my DD's and they did two picture frame mats when we brought those.

That's not a new guideline. Sealed store bought items are still fine. Ie: A sealed container of Oreo Cookies are completely acceptable, but homemade chocolate chip cookies are not.

Then I must have met some pretty sneaky people. I received homemade cookies at least twice. Maybe they were packaged really well in their carry-ons. Other good gift ideas would be phone cards for cms to call home with if you're really wanting to make nice. We had a dad once who was down at the midnight chocolate buffet in Lumiere's that would send one daughter at a time up to the club with chocolate goodies for us to snack on. As a cm, we don't typically get to eat in the guest dining areas at all. I was lucky enough to get to eat in a guest area 3 times in one contract (once was my farewell dinner that everyone gets & the other two were recognition dinners). We've had guests get appetizers from their meals at Palos wrapped up before ever touching them to bring to us. Our food in the crew mess is pretty, oh what's a good Disney term? It's pretty good for getting by, but treats like I talked about are the golden ticket.

Also any time you mention a crew member by name in your survey cards or if you write in, that cm get's tons of praise & lots of recognition infront of their department. It's a BIG deal.

Bubba Kegs keep beverages hot or cold, come in several sizes and colors and are great conversation starters. lol I am a proud Bubba Keg carrier!!!! You can purchase your own Bubba Keg at Target and similar stores.
Bubba Keg + Palo = sgroppino overload

I wonder if they would fill up a Bubba keg with sgroppino? I'm getting happy vibes just thinking about it!!

If you're wondering what it is...it's that delightful after dinner slushy drink at Palo. Yum!

Thanks DizDaddy, tikimimi, and Sues14! I'll definitely check it out. Our ship is pretty full so this might be a great little escape. 12 days and counting!

Yes it's just the same on the magic (that is the ship we diz daddy and I were on). Like he said the door was heavy and watch yourself when there are high winds, my husband and I were in the h/c room there on that map! Loved it

This was posted here in 2007, anyone recently been to CC and saw this? This is an awesome thread and I hope we get more posts for the DREAM now that it's underway.
