Definitely wouldn't pay $20 a night to have towel critters, definitely WOULD pay $20 a night if they could ensure I never saw another one of those cockroach critters that periodically show up in the rooms

Never. Honestly I don't care if I get them or not.

$20 a night on a week's stay would be $140! For towel animals. For far less than that you could buy a how-to book and some stickers and make your own. And then if you paid $140 for towel animals, exactly how disappointed would you be to get a lame one? The one I got at Art of Animation was a pleated washcloth with a sticker on it depicting the Easter Bunny. In November.

Nope!!!! We got two left one day on our trip, but if not it wouldn't have been a big deal. I can use $20 a day on something else.

Maybe it was supposed to be a Thanksgiving Bunny? I'm sure they ate bunnies at the first Thanksgiving, didn't they??

$20 would probably buy me a small Disney stuffed toy! No way am I paying any amount of money for folded towels in a cute shape.

If I don't get towel animals, I don't get them. Really not a big deal!

With the prices as much as they are at disney for much cooler and better quality stuff than that I would NEVER pay $20 a night for a Towel Animal. So much more you could do with that money at Disney than spend it on something like that. However if you have the money to do that type of stuff more power to you, do what ya like. Brotha could you spare a dime??

I've never really understood the whole fascination with towel animals. If I get one, OK. If I don't, OK. It doesn't make or break my vacation. I would think the suspense and surprise of getting a random one would be more enjoyable than paying for one, and maybe not getting what you expect.

Imagine the posts . . . ."My mousekeeper made a sloppy looking towel duck! I paid good money to get a great detailed towel animal and this one couldn't even stand on it's own! I'm so upset they wouldn't comp my room over this! Blah . . . blah . . .blah . . ."

That wouldn't even be on my radar as something I'd be willing to pay extra for. I agree with the pp who said they would rather the mousekeepers would spend that extra time actually cleaning the rooms.

No I wouldn't. I like it being a once in a while surprise.

No way. That money could be well spent many other ways there.

This thread is too funny Having said that, when one of my dd's was little she loved the towel animals. Brought one home and kept it in her bathroom for a good long time

One trip at CBR housekeeping had a table setup in the food court teaching how to make towel animals. Maybe every resort should do that

I don't even spend $20 on a towel that I intend to own! If they are really important to you, I recommend going on a Disney Cruise....you will get one every night.
