On the Fantasy, we attached ours to the wall hooks (we had accidentally left the over door hooks at WDW) as a make do. The zip ties were loose loops, so it was easy to remove.

Hoping this would be okay, but not sure if the Wonder has these on the wall.[/QUOTE]

Where did you get this over the door hanger? It's perfect and love the idea of using the hooks and zip-tying it on!

this is the pocket-closet style we used in WDW that worked well. Considered it for the cabins closet

Those are sticky and can indeed leave residue.

Why doesn't Disney just install some kind of permanent hooks on the back of the bathroom door to hang organizers from? Actually, maybe there are If so many people want to hang something there that they have to outlaw it, seems like an improvement waiting to happen!

That organizer was so useful, I'm all torn up

We have a Mary K toiletries bag we take with us, and always hang it from the hook on the back of the bathroom door. At least in the Cat 11s on the classic ships, there's a towel hook on the back of the door that can accommodate something hanging. We usually just hang towels on the clothesline, so use the hook for our organizer.

We'll be on the Fantasy in an 8 this time around, so I'm looking forward to trying to figure out where to hang our organizers. If worse comes to worse, they'll work in the closet.

I got ours at Walmart. It was about $12 if my memory serves me well. We live in California so I paid more than most people seem to indicate on the boards. It was great and held up well at both WDW and the cruise. I'll just have to think of another creative way to hang it on the Wonder.

This will make it worse. The damage is from the hooks scraping the top of the doorway, not the door itself. Placing something under the hooks will cause it to scrape more.

Or take two of the kind you like and attach doubled duct tape over the part that goes over the door (keep it thin) and you'll get double the storage, inside the bathroom for toothbrushes, lotions, etc, and outside the bathroom for KTTW cards, pens, things from your pockets. You just have to keep the weight the same on both sides.

brilliant!

I really don't understand banning over the door organizer. Bringing one was the best tip we have ever gotten. Feels like another takeaway.

You might want to try the magnetic hooks sold to hang wreaths or seasonable decorations on the entry doors of your house. They are available in various colors. I have found them in white, red and green, and are quite strong. I would post a picture if I can figure out how...

You can buy magnetic hooks that hold anywhere from 20 to 50 lbs each. Problem solved

I've noticed that the back of the cabin door (not the bathroom door) seems to go from not so magnetic from the top to the bottom.
