The room was probably occupied by a cash guest before you.

Checked into BLT yesterday. Body lotion in both bathrooms of our 1 bedroom. Maybe your voice was heard, OP!

Speaking of only getting them every 4 days. D they really think one tiny little bottle smaller than a travel size will work for a family for 4 days. They know how many people are checking in.....why only one???

It depends on the room size. You get one of everything in a studio, two of everything in most 1BRs, three of everything in the 1BRs with the extra bathroom.

Where do you stay? In all of our stays, there was only one where we only got one set of bath products. Normally you get a set of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel for the shower and another set for use in the whirlpool tub.

I don't every recall having 2 sets day 1 for a studio or 1 BR or 3 for a 2 BR.

I enjoy having all the toiletries as well. I'm all for simplied packing over product princess. I use the shampoo, conditioner, soap and facial soap (and lotion when it's available). I used to pack cetaphil for my face but then realized their mild facial soap is fine for a few days.

Find the supplies for a studio are adequate for 2 people - not more. I do carry 'samples' with me in case we run out as our FL based DD does join us on the weekends, altho she usually brings her own products.

I think the lotion has been a new addition (re-addition) - I remember being surprised it was there for our March stay.

Personally, I rarely use any of the products from Disney, other than the bar soap.

I go to Dollar Tree and buy a bottle of shampoo and a bottle of conditioner, pack them in my checked luggage, and if I don't have room to pack them up for the trip home, I'm only out a couple of bucks. The same could be done with hand lotion.

I hate trying to fit a big carry-on into an overhead bin, so I check the luggage and my only carry-on is my laptop. For those that do want to use only carry-ons, isn't lotion available in the resort store?

No but they are giving you something to start off with. I have never been to a timeshare that leaves enough bath supplies for a whole week (I have only been to others that are week long) but instead give you the same sample size bottle to start with.You are expected to bring your own or buy more there. It saves a lot of money in fees.

Studios do not get two sets. As I stated above, with one exception we have had one set for a studio, two sets for 1BRs with one bathroom, three sets for 1BRs with two bathrooms.

In the 1BR there has been one set of products on the large vanity next to the whirlpool tub and another set in the shower. When we stayed in Kidani there was another complete set in the second bathroom of the 1BR villa.

We don't use any of the toiletries now that I think about it. My oldest daughter bags them up and likes to bring them home. I do remember seeing little bottles of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel under our sink but no lotion.

I've always suspected the "lotion comes lotion goes" is a training issue - for some reason the cash side gets it, the DVC doesn't and if the mousekeeper is new or forgets, you get lotion.

Why? I'd expect the answer is cost and the lotion is probably the most expensive product they set out. Since a hotel bottle really isn't sufficient to even finish my legs, and at Disney I'm lathered down with sunscreen, which counts as lotion from a moisture perspective I've never really worried about it (but in a hotel it often does end up in my purse as purse hand lotion).

We use the shampoo/conditioner and find the quantities sufficient, but are not a shampoo every day family (I'm about every three days).
