It would be easier if I just wore swim suit under my clothes. But the boys swim trunks would be too bulky to wear under shorts. What is every one else doing???
Not only did my boys and husband wear swimming trunks with t shirts but I also wore swimsuit with a nice cover up to board. No weird looks for us but then we wouldn't care anyway as Disneywonderfun said its your vacation. Go for what makes you happy!

Thanks. It will be much easier to just wear our swim clothes. Now my only carry on will be alcohol. Lol. Last year I had so much stuff the stroller was used just for carting bags around.

I know someone a while back posted an email address that can be used if anyone needs to reach us. Can you repost it?

When you carry-on water it has to be in a bag right? You can't just carry on the whole case. And alcohol has to be in your carry-on also? I have a soft sided cooler... can I put a few things in there?
Hi, my understanding is that Disney banned soft sided coolers from boarding now, so don't bring that one! Alcohol does have to be in a carry on, as well as the water.

I would always carry cash, and american money is gladly accepted. Bring smaller bills, as they will always give you change in local currency. I am in
grand cayman right now on business and even the bar at the RItz Carlton gave me change for american dollars in Cayman currency.

correction, I do think that you don't necessarily have to put water in a bag, but depending on when you board, you would be 'lugging it around" with you, so for ease of use, we put in a bag that rolls.

I feel the same way!

When boarding the ship I'm planning on my girls wearing their suits under a shirt and swim shorts. Do I need to plan on carrying anymore clothes for them or will we be in our room and have our luggage before dinner? We are the late seating. I'm sitting here with piles of girl clothing in front of me feeling a bit overwhelmed. But in a week it will be well worth it.

Thanks for the answers about the drinks. I think I'll keep my cooler at home and put everything in a wheeled carry on.

When I was on the Fantasy in October we had our luggage soon after when our room was available. We couldn't believe how fast it was because we boarded around 12:30.

Conventional wisdom is to pack clothes for dinner in a carry-on "just in case". I've always had our luggage show up by 5:00 or so, but you just don't know. Doesn't have to be anything fancy for the first night.

Thanks! I got our FE gifts packed and my girls' stuff packed.

What is the best thing to bring for extra plug ins?

This is what I use, but any powerstrip would work. They don't want extension cords, but powerstrips with a short cord are OK.

Do this today!!!

Everyone go look for your passports or birth certificates. There have been two post lately of people finding out the night before they leave for their trip that they don't know where they are.

Lol. We religiously put ours in the safe the minute we come back from any trip. Helps avoid any last minute panic. Now if I can only find where I put my pirate shirt, everything will be good
