As you might imagine, it is very important to us to keep our facilities looking their best for all our guests.

As part of our commitment to this area of focus, we ask that guests no longer affix anything to their stateroom door utilizing any adhesive or tape.

We have found that these adhesives damage the finish on the stateroom doors and therefore ask that guests limit door decoration to those of the magnetic variety.
Unofficially, what I'm hearing is that DCL is considering the possibility of levying surcharges on people who damage the door finish with adhesives. They're trying to avoid that because the really do appreciate the passion and creativity that people are putting into this, but the issue with the finishes coming off the doors is getting to be a real issue. I know some have already received this notice on-board the ship, but I wanted to make sure it's out there for everyone.

Thanks,
Pete

It does say "no longer affix anything to their stateroom door utilizing any adhesive or tape." and "that guests limit door decoration to those of the magnetic variety"

I would say removeable adhesive is still an adhesive and not allowed. Magnet variety only.

Oh, now that is just wrong and NOT in the Disney spirit!
I'm so sorry that happened to you, especially on more than one occasion!

We had a few Disney themed magnets and cardboard cut-out tropical fish magnets. Anything fun will do.

We also have a magnetic dry-erase board and marker for leaving notes. It is a nice way to help keep track of everyone with a party of 9 in three staterooms.

Thank you for the insight. To clarify, it would appear that this includes post-it notes.

Loved this thread

I would have never thought about decorating our cruise cabins doors. Many of the pics gave clear ideas as to what people do. Thanks everyone for teaching me and for all the great ideas





Now, I am excited to have a low cost thing to plan with my granddaughter. I am thinking dollar store plastic frames for copies of her fav princess pics from the parks. (With magnets on the back of course)

Thanks again,
June

I forgot to ask ...

I saw someone else ask what FE gifts were, but I never saw an answer.

Anyone care to share?

Thanks again,
June

Basically it stand for "Fish Extender". Outside each cabin door is a metal fish clip that holds any paper correspondence that DCL may leave for you (invitations, announcements, etc.). Many people like to share small gifts or tokens with their fellow cruisers so they have "extended" this hold by making fabric holders to hold more things...usually with pockets.

Just Google Fish Extenders and a dozens of threads will come up with pics as well.

Over our past 8 cruises, we have had items taken off our door four of those cruises! The worst was last year when they cleaned our door off and we found them down strewn down the hallways on other people's doors! As for our FE, we always tie it to the fish with heavy string so that it is not so easy to just grab and run. Scissors are needed to actually detach it.

It is sad, but I do believe 50% of it is prank and 50% is theft! As a result, I learned the hard way to keep the cruise specific/personally special ones on the back of our door inside! I lost a few that were meaningful and I will never get them back!

Don't the have camera's in the halls?

This will be my first cruise so I don't have any idea.

Very surprised for security reasons the wouldn't?


Also if we were to put out room numbers on pic's, then maybe that would at least prevent the thefts, but not the brats?

This is good to know. I was about to bring a bunch of magnets. Now maybe just a few.
