I also use a pop up hamper,roll dirty clothes and put in a big duffle when coming home. On our last cruise we had five in our cabin and I took a over the door shoe rack hung it on the door that was an adjoining room door but wasn't open. It was great. Kids had a place easily accessible to store the shoes off the floor and wasn't in and out of the closets making noise.

We brought a pop up hamper, but there is a Disney laundry bag in the room so we never even needed it.

We put all of our dirty laundry in the empty chest in the room.

2) Try to participate in Fish Extenders. It was so fun to see how creative others are and the kids love little surprises.
3) Bring your own alcohol. Saves $$
4) Place room service request card for the next morning. They call to let you know that it is on the way, which served as our wake up call. We got spoiled with the ease of room service. Must get the cheese and crackers as well as the big chocolate chip cookies
5) Participate in pin trading. At first, I thought I was not going to, but it actually is fun because you get to know the CMs and Officers. My daughter went a step further and invited all the CMs we met, and had time, to write in her book. Was like an autograph book from around the world.

These are the top 5 things that made the cruise easy and memorable.
How do you find others who want to do the pin trading? Is it listed in the navigator?

I think there may have been pin trading in the navigator. I remember my boys trading wi the officers before dinner. I think some of the CM in the shops had them too.
