Great and not so expensive treat!!

Also, you can bring the one the large Mickey vinylmations for signatures. If you can find one in white, it would be really cute. You can specify what signatures you want: classic characters, princesses etc.

You could bring on your own rootbeer. I have done that for my youngest who loves rootbeer.
Do they really have Sprite Zero on board?? I was going to bring my own!!

There are a number of things that seem to repeat themselves, but it shows that different people had different experiences with different things!! But all in all it seems to be an easier read then paging through the thread!! I did do a spell check and make some minor changes to some posts. It also indicates the end of each page so if you see a post that interests you, then you can just go to that page on the DIS and see the responses after it!! If you see anything that I posted incorrectly PLEASE let me know so I can change it!! I just got off the magic and can't wait to sail DCL again in 2013!!

Oh, and one of my BIGGEST tips is to re-book another DCL trip while your onboard!! And what we did was book a December 2013 3 day sailing and paid the required 10% deposit on that, we booked 2 rooms at around $89.00 per room deposit. Now we can decide when we actually want to sail, which we can even push it into 2014, and then we can change our sail date!! And if we decide that we can't do the cruise, or something else get's in the way of us going (NEVER GONNA HAPPEN!!) we can just get our deposit back, but we can never get the discount once we get off!!) You can also add a TA after you book online depending on who has the best incentives, as long as you don't pay the cruise off before you try and add the TA!! Oh, and I think that the re-booking desk was without question the #1 busiest spot we saw on the cruise!! That girl had a line of people waiting before she would sit down twice a day, and she wouldn't get a break till she cut the line off!! So try and get to her early!!

Oh, and keep the suggestions for the thread coming!!! I love the DIS... and all the DISigners who made wonderful door magnets and shirt DISigns for my family!!!
Happy Sailing!!

If you use the "Order breakfast" hanger for room service...which we love to do...don't hesitate to write notes. Cranberry juice isn't listed, but we write it in, as well as ask for extra cream.

Purex 3 in 1 detergent and fabric softener sheets. Saved a lot of money purchasing for doing laundry.

Then, use the laundry after the last dinner rotation or if you are from California like us going on the Med cruise, we were up in the middle of the night getting use to the time change. So, we had the laundry room all to ourselves.

I just wanted to add a phone app called Ship Mate (1.99 iphone), it lets you add your cruise and customize a packing list, start an itinerary for each day and probably some things I haven't found yet...

for the person that needs everything planned out (ME), this is great
