There is a page - it's page 27 in my docs (the last page), called European Cruise Beverage Waiver. I have a 21 year old (just turned on Monday) but also an 18 year old that I will probably sign this for just in case I want her to be able to have a glass of champagne in Palo or something. It was interesting because it's not something I had seen before. The form says to fill it out and turn in at Guest Services on Deck 3.

Well, I guess you all will get a true cultural experience at the pool at your hotel in France.

Where did you read this, and does it definitely apply to hotels? I find that really hard to believe, given that hotels cater to tourists from around the world. Most men from countries that don't wear speedos as the normal bathing attire don't even own one. I hope this is not really enforced, otherwise my dad will be sitting on the pool sidelines since he does not own one nor would he buy one (and nor would I want to see him in one lol!). We are staying at Disney's Hotel New York for 4 nights post cruise and I've never seen this mentioned on the Disneyland Paris forum. Guess we'll find out!

I saw this on multiple posts on tripadvisor. I'm going to go over to the DLP site and ask specific questions about this.

I did do a google search and saw that this is truly the case, but not all hotels enforce this. I'm sure the disney ones won't, but alas, the explorer's will.

Apparently you can buy speedos from a vending machine poolside.

And no, this is not a joke! Check out some of the reviews on tripadvisore for the thomas cook explorer's hotel.

Buying a speedo from a vending machine poolside. That made me laugh out loud.... Oh, the funny things I could say right now, but will refrain...

OMGosh! I thought the speedos thing was a joke! I guess we will be skipping the pool as neither my DH or youngest DS will wear anything but swim shorts. We are staying at Disney's Newport Bay...maybe they might bend the rules for tourists-lol.

We got ours too, but as soon as I opened them I got super nervous. I've been procrastinating and haven't made a lot of plans. I better get on the ball!

Cruise docs are in our hands, too! I am so impressed with our 2-page itinerary! We haven't ever been on a cruise long enough for an itinerary needing 2 pages!

It's been a long time since we've used Disney transport. We are arriving a couple of days in advance and using Disney to get to our hotel. We collect our bags at the airport ourselves, correct? Or do we check at home airport and not see them till we get to hotel?
