I was reading about people saying to bring in your own mugs/cups with lids etc. to fill at the pop station since the cups are pretty small.
I'm wondering if anyone knows, can you bring them in to the movies etc. instead of having to buy concessions?
Thanks everyone!!

1. Pillow cases with signatures
2. Ordering cookies and milk from room service before bed.

What else????
You are taking a 25 day cruise???!!!

Yes, you can. We brought plastic mugs from WDW and used them and also took cups/lids/straws to make our own iced coffee in our room and we took them every night to the show. I had those individual starbucks iced coffee pakcets and we had our housekeeping guy make sure we had ice in our room everyday by 3.

We would stop by the machines to get coffee and soda to bring in, and bring in cookies from Beach Blanket Buffet. Why buy concessions when there is so much free food?

I wonder if it's the same iphone alarm clock I bought...even with the directions, it took me forever to figure it out lol!
