Yes, it is one per room and the "perks" of the room are based on the highest level in the room. For instance, if there is a platinum and a silver guest in the room, each will get their appropriate lanyard and designation on the KTTW card. The room will get the backpack and the additional platinum gifts (if they continue to give those).

I had a lot of requests for the water bottles! I have mailed off all that I have or should I say 'found' so far in my house...I am sure there are more! I will keep your PM's and let you know when I have more. Then if your still interested you can PM me your name and address.

I have also noticed that lanyards are in big demand on this tread... I have those too... any takers??

I saw someone with the backpack at Epcot yesterday and wondered if was the new gift...I liked the looks of it. Funny thing is, I was expecting the red and black drawstring bag again, and I was going to give it to my sister as its her first cruise and I already have one. Now I'm not so sure I want to give up my gift!!!

Just curious, I know I'll get the lanyard, but I don't expect she will as a newbie cruiser...should I prepare her for that too?

Correct. She will not be given one, unless you have a CM that doesn't realize that she's a first-timer or is just nice and gives her one just for.

HTHs!

Sorry...I was about to post a pic but just saw that Webshots (where I have all my photos) is changing to a different format and I don't have access to the pics right now!!!

The towels are red white and blue and very nice. They have CASTAWAY CLUB across the center and the words Magic and Wonder in the bottom corners....plenty of room in the top corners for Dream and Fantasy!!! I wish they would bring the towels back!!!

EDITED TO ADD....SEE POST #21 IN THIS THREAD....I ALREADY POSTED A PIC OF THE TOWEL A FEW MONTHS AGO!!!

Does everyone in the stateroom get a lanyard or just people who have sailed before? Dh, dd, and I are cc members but ds isn't. He's only 5. I can see tears in our future if his sister gets one and he doesn't. I may have to stick a lanyard in my pocket and slip it to the cm at check-in...

Yes, only CC members receive lanyards. You may get lucky and get a CM that will give everyone one, but don't count on it. They're really pretty strict about giving them only to CC members & making sure each one gets the proper one (Platinum/Gold/Silver). Definitely bring one for your DS or just give him yours or your husband's.

We received the beach towel on our first cruise. The second cruise was a small canvas bag with paper and pen and mickey rice krispie bars. The bag pretty much fell apart. Then it was the red and black tote bags with water bottles and key chain. Have a few of those.. then a passport holder and notecards and then a nice backpack in December. Wonder what we will get in April??

If you are DVC you can also get a lanyard from the DVC reps.

The CMs at check in are very stingy with giving out lanyards. DD#1 and I were silvers, but my second DD was a newbie - no lanyard for her!
