I had to look at the people wearing shorts in the MDR every night... can you give me the email for Disney so I can complain? I better get at least 75% off my next 7-day cruise.

We were fortunate and only saw a couple of guest in shorts. Really, some folks should check the mirror first.

I'll hire them! How much does one tip the seat saver? Is there an envelope? Can you ask them to be mature for their ages and go save me lounge chairs by the adult pool? That'd be most helpful.

Shorts, seats, saving....none would be a problem if only DCL would use the demerit voucher system brought up once before.

I know DCL has ages posted for excursions, but my almost 4 year old really can handle himself underwater. Can I book him on our scuba excursion, even though DCL says "ages 8 and up"?

I have to eat my dinner at 5:00 and I'm booked for late seating. If they don't change my dining to early I will cancel my cruise!!

I got sick the day before the cruise, but don't have trip insurance. Who do I call at Disney to get a refund anyway?

Since I don't think I should have to pay a cork fee to bring my bottle of wine to dinner, I'll have my 12-year-old go refill my wine glass in my stateroom throughout dinner.

There were no good spots left on the family beach at Castaway Cay. Again, since my 12-year-old is so mature, we'll just go to a corner of the adult beach. No one will mind. I paid good money for this vacation, and I will not sit on a poor spot of the beach. Plus, I'll have my mature 12-year-old put some towels and beach bags on a hammock....so it'll always be available if/when I choose to lay on it.

One last one....the ship will wait for me if I'm running late in port, right?

Hey, these kids take cash, check, credit, debit, paypal, and barter too!

Another thing I can rent my kids out to do! Good idea

For you? For sure!! Those elderly people don't really need to sit, standing is good for them!

They have a magical helicopter just like in the movies just for that!

I'm bringing my on alcohol on board but I want to drink it outside my room in the public areas. What's the best way to disguise it so "no one will know"? Does Disney really care?

Brown bag it! That's what I do when I'm carrying around my bottle of fine wine...Boones Farm Strawberry Hill 2011.

How much should I tip my servers? I was thinking of giving them a bag of candy instead of money. It seems more friendly than cold cash.
