I love my little shampoo bottle with the Mickey's ear. I gave one to my nephew in a Christmas stocking and my sister-in-law tells me he makes her fill that lil itty bity thing with his shampoo. Over and over.

Clearly, they're low class & immature.

I'm in love with the body butter. I used it earlier on my hands and I am thinking of our next cruise

I've been to places with those in them! They're awful BTW - my MIL has one installed in her shower because she's seen them in her travels and thought they looked 'neat'

Ziplock bags! Yes! Great idea


We tipped our cabin steward $10 for some extra toiletries and got a half a bin liner bag full of them, including some of the after sun gel that the regular cabins don't get

I thought these forums were for giving each other tips and encouragement...Ohhh right, I have learnt that I need to make room in my bathroom cabinet for extras...

PS. I confess that I have a sample of toiletries from each of the Disney parks worldwide. The best by far is Tokyo - the Disney hotel has a Seven Dwarf theme! Omgosh a Doc toothbrush...the products themselves are okay but not as nice as my usual shampoo.

I was on a trip with three tween girls and we ran out of shampoo on day one. I called the front desk for more and they brought me a bag of dozens of shampoos, conditioners, shower gels and mouth wash. I told the houseman I only needed the shampoo and he insisted I take it all.
For what it cost a hotel/cruise line to buy these (pennies) and the advertising they and the manufacturer get from you looking at the product (priceless), I think it's a win/win situation when you take it home.

Am I the only one who doesn't love these H20 products? I just got back from DW a couple of weeks ago and took home some shampoo/conditioner and used it today for the first time. I thought it was horrible. Just me opinion!

I don't really like it either... I have long thick hair and it first didn't lather very good with the shampoo and then the conditioner made it feel funny... like it was not conditioned ...so the combing after was not easy (the reason why I use conditioner)... however in its defense once it was dry I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary with texture or behavior. I did like the smell and the reminder of the cruise are why a few bottles found their way home post cruise

I don't get the draw either. I'll use the bottle or two I get when staying at the resorts (Marathon weekend I usually have extra left without asking for it...maybe they note I'm running the marathon?) for post-gym-pre-work showers rather than haul my big bottles around, but that's about it. I like it slightly better than the crap they have at the gym, but only slightly.

Well, if nothing else you guys had me pulling stuff out of my bathroom cupboard this morning to see if I did in fact, have any containers of the stuff!

I think we took the partially used ones from our bathroom - that's still okay, right - but must have used them & chucked the containers. I don't remember them having pics of Mickey on them so was trying to refresh my memory.

Like others have mentioned, I wasn't crazy about the shampoo/conditioner and wouldn't be using it next time anyway. However, my dh who occasionally travels does have to book a specific hotel (by his wife's request) in a specific city so that he can bring home the Bath & Body Works toiletries they provide.

It's all about finding your favourites

Oh No, you have created a monster. People are going to start hoarding the shower caps too.

there are some pretty creative people out there, I'd have never thunk to use a shower cap for anything but my head.

Hmmm. another thought just occured to me. If people are hoarding shower caps AND shampoo/conditioner....Do you think DCL will start surveying guests each day "are you washing your hair today or not?" then only supplying one or the other?????
