How large are the refrigerators in the room and has anyone asked for a different one? I am curious about if we could use what is in the room normally or if we will need to ask for something else.
On the Dream & Fantasy, there is a real fridge in the room. On the Wonder & Magic they are "cooling boxes". If you have a medical need, you can request a real fridge on the Wonder & Magic for your room.

One note, none of the the fridges have a freezer compartment. And DCL most likely will not freeze an ice pack for your personal use. If you need something like this you might look into those first aid snap-paks that freeze up when you break the vial in them.

From the DCL site:



Beverage Policy

QuestionWhat is the policy regarding bringing alcoholic beverages on board?
Answer
Alcohol is permitted on board. However, any fragile items (including alcoholic beverages) must be hand-carried on board in the carry-on of an adult Guest – age 21 or older (dimensions can't exceed 22" wide, 14" high and 9" deep).

Alcohol brought on board may not be consumed in any lounge or public area.

Guests who arrive in the dining room, including Palo and Remy, with a bottle of champagne or wine will be charged a corking fee of $20.00 per bottle.

Please be advised: Disney Cruise Line reserves the right to remove fragile items (including beverages) from checked luggage. In such cases, items will be stored and returned at the end of the voyage. Beverage containers are considered fragile and have previously caused damage in checked luggage. All fragile items must be transported inside carry-on luggage.

Yes, thanks. I knew the policy, but somehow it seems that many CM don't seem to mind, from what has been posted on this thread and others. Oh, well....

Wow, well glad you were able to enjoy it like that. I think that I will take my bottle and if they say anything, there is no harm in just returning it to my room.

I actually got some from a few friends that go to WDW regularly. They have never cruised and was surprised to know that pins are traded there as well. I have to get her one from the ship (remind me)

Bizzybee1 is a reputable dealer on eBay, for bang for the buck starter pins, look for booster packs, usually 5-7 smaller pins, great for trade fodder.

Just off The Magic... I wanted to reiterate the great idea of going to a DVC presentation since they give away a $300 OBC. I went to the very first one listed and WON!! There were only five other people there, so chances were good, but as the week went on, the presentations were more crowded. My advice: go to first one. Good luck!!
