If anyone hear as reserved a cabana and would consider splitting it that's abt $250 savings! My hubby & son will prob be at water slides most of time anyway, but I'd even take one on adult side!

Also can anyone direct me where to purchase 3 lanyards for our 1st cruise? I heard they give them upon 2nd cruise but we r having a difficult time purchasing some

Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks

I messaged my travel agent about trying to get one today. I was afraid that they were all sold out already. This is our first Disney cruise, so I didn't hear about them until the other day! Good luck!!

Sorry - misread the message and thought you were offering your cabana - we are seeking one as well.

Ellen, I don't have a cabana but hope you find one! Are you searching for Disney Cruise lanyards or just Disney theme ones? I assume they use these as in WDW for pin trading? Like I said I am so new to all of this I have no idea where to start!

You can find general disney lanyards on amazon, or through the disney store. As for the cabana, wish we had one too! Didn't even know about them until just the other day.

Thanks for the feedback, I'm traveling concierge so I'm hoping we can get one on board? Hoping they may have kept some out.

I'm looking for any type of Disney lanyards, actually I'm stayin at wdw for 3 days prior to cruise, I can prob get one there!

Disney lanyards are readily available on both ebay and amazon if you wantto get ahead of time. You can also pick up at most Disney shops (airport, any store on property, hotels).

I have a three year old princess as well!! It is also our first cruise! If you have any great tips let me know! I am nervous excited.

Does anyone know if it is ok to take travel mugs on the ship? I have heard that the filling station cups are very small. Thanks!

I was told to definitely bring your own travel mugs/nalgene bottles. We have a huge collection of the Disney parks travel mugs, so I thought that I would throw a few in my bag.

Yay! So e had told me yes but other said Disney frowns upon it. I was told they make you fill the paper cup then fill yours. Are there attendants at all of the drink stations? I didn't get it but I've never been on a cruise

This is our first Disney cruise to, so I'm not sure about that!

Ellen...I sent you a PM.

As for bringing your own travel mugs/cups. Yes you can. they do ask that you use a paper cup to fill your own cup for sanitary reasons (don't want germs coming into contact with the soda dispensers).

I have not seen DCL frown upon it. I bring a plastic Tervis tea mug for my morning tea (I like a big tea cup) and my large Tervis tumbler for consuming beverages during the day. I love a ton of ice in my cold drinks so having the large Tervis tumbler allows me to do that. the cups provided at the drink stations are on the small size...like the paper drink cups at WDW.
