Okay, twist my arm. I don't smoke but it didn't stop me from asking the bartenders for those adorable cute little match boxes with the DCL logo on it. They are so cute!

And I love taking those adorable cute glass paper topper thingys. (The ones that cover the glasses in the bathroom.) I put them over my wine glasses up in the cupboard. I obviously have a hard time throwing away anything that has a DCL logo on it. Shameful.

I asked every server, bartender, whoever, "can I keep this pen?" I LOVE my DCL pens! (Pen hoarder right here!)

I brought an iron and it caught on fire and I just threw it overboard.

Just kidding. Just seeing if anyone was reading this. No one at home ever listens to me...so, I just thought I'd check here.
Ha ha you are funny!

I don't do it anymore because I spend too much time preparing the FE gifts, the FE take up too much room in my suitcase to bring them and walking around the decks filling FE when I could be enjoying the cruise.

No flames here. We did it once and will never again. I spent way too much time and money plus room in the luggage.

I've done the FE 3 out of 5 cruises. Doubt we'll do it again. It's not just you. I kinda don't see me even bothering with the meet threads anymore. Seems most do the bulk of their interacting on FB which (non-DCL confession) I don't do. Yep, you read that right. I'm 39 years old and still function today with NO FB.

When the meet-and-greet lines are long (and being cut off) to get pictures with characters, I get so annoyed by the time taken up dealing with autograph books.
We go on our first cruise this fall, but have been to WDW several times. We have two DD's and between the two of them, we have TONS of autograph books. It is better for us now, but a couple of our trips were all about getting every autograph possible and fitting in rides if we had time. Truth is- I can't stand "wasting" all of that time getting every autograph.

That said, I will share how I explained it to a former boss. He was giving me the "I don't get why you want to go to WDW when you could spend less and go to Destin" speech. He is a huge golfer, so I said "imagine if you could go to a resort and get all of your favorite golfers' autographs and just be immersed in golf for a week. For children, meeting Cinderella and other characters and getting their picture and autograph is a dream."

I know some people think a picture with a character should be enough, without taking the time for an autograph, but if you met your favorite celebrity or athlete, would a picture be enough or wouldn't you also want their autograph? I admitted earlier in this post that I can't stand the time it takes, but for our kids it is worth much more than we realize.

Please don't read this as a criticism of anyone/ any post. I do not mean this as a flame for anyone. I get so frustrated and impatient in character lines. It is at those times that I remember the joy my DD's have when they go through their books and enjoy how the different characters write their names.

Well I must say I am happy I did not get ripped a new one for thinking a FE is stupid. I agree with the reasons for not doing it. It takes up precious weight and room in bags and time while on the ship. I think the reason I came clean was the childish bickering going on the 9/29/13 members cruise thread. I was part of that cruise till it became a DVC cruise so I still get updates cause I participated, I am not subscribed to it, and let me tell you I can't believe those people are adults. Seems their whole cruise is dependent on a FE.

Yeah, add me to the list of those who don't get the FEs. I'll also add magnets and matching family tshirts to the list. Its all too wierd for me. I'll confess I'm a Scrooge. :P

34 years old and no FB in our house either (Thank GOD). We aren't joining any more cruise meet threads after our 2014 cruises. Over it.

We do the FE because DD (6) loves it, but I'm waiting for the day when the novelty wears off....

I agree to whomever mentioned character autographs. Ridiculous idea.

Bonniec, I am with you on matching family shirts. No way Jose. Eek.

Agree on FE but i have decided I'm just going to buy stuff for DS(7) and secretly put things in his FE. It will save me a ton of time and money

My confession is ... I don't get what is so dreamy about Cruise Director Brent (or Bret or whatever his name is). I know he has a huge fan club on these boards. I just don't see it.

I am right there with you. I have even written a scathing letter to DCL about him after he lied to me right to my face. That is something I just will not tolerate. Just so there is no discussion here I will just say that on one cruise I took on the Magic there was a huge problem with kids at the adult pool and clubs. I brought this to his attention and he assured me that it would be addressed at a meeting they were having in the morning. He told me that to my face. Well not only was anything not done, but I actually witnessed him stopping crew members from having children leave adult only areas. Oh I was so upset. I am so not a fan of his and I won't lie, I hope I never have to cruise with him again.
