The best things we brought were a power strip and wheeled duffles that fit under the bed (although I understand you can have them store your luggage). We went from a Cat. 4 to a Cat 6 and because our luggage fit under the bed we felt like we had more room.

We usually try to bring candy and gum from home. I don't think you can buy gum on board. Also, if you want candy or a snack during the shows it can be expensive so you can just buy some cheap candy before you go.

They won't bring it from the kitchen because their policy is "not to deliver chemicals to the staterooms" and I was told to use the very fragrant shampoo which left a strong, albeit pretty, residue/stench on her bottles. Maybe a dollar store carries a travel size?
You might try Palmolive wipes as well.

Yep - in the shower. Handy to hang those wet suits on at the end of the day!

Lysol makes a sound? What are you doing with the Lysol anyway, that you'd need to drown out the sound?

Just to clarify....some stateroom hosts MAY store your extra luggage for you but it is not the norm on DCL.

Thanks for the clarification. I thought I'd read that somewhere. Anyway, luggage that fits under the bed is now a must for us.

Definitely bring an alarm clock. The only clock in the stateroom is an older style analog clock---no alarm! We overslept on departure day.

We noticed a lack of clocks in general so you'll want to bring a watch too.

We have the largest hardsided luggage made and it fit under the bed no problem. You just have to lift the foot of the bed up to get the luggage under since the frame is much lower that the bottom of the mattress. So no need for special luggage.

Or just use the Mickey Mouse wake up call system on your stateroom phone.
I don't know how you could oversleep on departure day, they knocked on our door at 7 am 45 minutes before we planned to get up on departure day to "make sure we were up"

The usual...

power strip

alarm clock

wrist watch

magnetic dry erase board

wrist wallet/purse for evenings instead of a lanyard ruining my outfit


I don't bother with the clothespins though. I just string the clothesline through the swim suits' leg holes/arm holes.

"I don't bother with the clothespins though. I just string the clothesline through the swim suits' leg holes/arm holes."

My response to that is "Duh!" (is there a smilie for smacking yourself on the head?)! We just used to drape the suits over the line, and hand some from the back of the door - your idea was too simple for me to think of

I'll ditto the over the door shoe holder - there are lots of drawers/shelves, but it did take care of a lot of the clutter, and made things easy to find.

Do they still make them? We have not been able to find them and I was just getting ready to dig for the post about drying soap into sponge squares. The palmolive cloths are great!

Where did you get them... we are up in Canada (but have been looking when we go to the US) and are pacing an order with WEGoShop for WDW and I can add them if they are sold in FL.

Thanks!

Totally agree on the Ziplock bags. I use them for so many things. I also bring disinfecting wipes to wipe down the room (remote, light switches, door handles, etc.). Those new Purex detergent plus softner sheets for laundry.

Side Note: We don't mind the hairdryer so much. At least not enough to bring one with us.
