I don't think the little inflatable water wings are, at least not in the pools...it has to be Coast Guard approved:

Coast Guard approved personal flotation devices (PFDs) and flotation sewn into the bathing suit for safety. However, recreational floating devices such as floats, rafts and fun noodles cannot be brought on board and are not permitted in the pools or on Castaway Cay.

I know things like Puddlejumpers are ok. And DCL provides lifejackets both on the ship and at CC.

Enjoy your cruise!

Haha! I meant if 10 people were flying kites over the heads of 2000 at the beach... Not pretty!

Not too mention some child or child-like adult might try flying a kite while on the ship. That could cause problems as well.

If you really want to fly a kite at Castaway Cay, you often could do it with a kite provided by DCL -- on many cruises we have been on, they offered a Family craft activity the day before Castaway Cay -- kite decorating. (Can't confirm if this is an activity on recent cruises but was on my last cruise last fall.) They do emphasize that kites can be flown at Castaway Cay (don't remember if they ask you do to it at the Sports Beach) but NOT onboard the ship.

I assume when they say a DVD player, a portable is okay? We'll be bringing one on the flight to keep the kids occupied.
Portable with it's own screen is fine. They just don't want you connecting anything to the TV. People do it and mess up all the settings.

You won't have to worry about what will happen to them if you just read the list and don't pack those things. That said to my understanding they will just confiscate them, and you can pick them up at the end of your cruise. As to how they will know you have the items, you have to go through security to get into the terminal.

That's what I figured. Can you imagine someone out on their balcony, flying a kite? I can totally see the problems with kites.

Have you ever tried a puddle jumper? Super awesome and no danger of deflating (this is the thing we were always worried about when I was a lifeguard--parents feeling really secure (and less attentive) with the kid wearing water wings and not realizing one has deflated).

Thank you I may take them if they tell me no then we will just use the life jackets. Hopefully she will just learn to swim this summer then we won't have to worry about it at all.

they do scan luggage and some things are very obvious. I think the opp had at one time asked about bringing an iron. that would certainly show up on the scan and it would be confinscated in a heartbeat. I have read of some cruisers trying to get things past security but most have been disappointed. i'm sure things have been taken that cruisers didn't know were prohibited.

the good thing is that you can collect the items at the end of your cruise but I wonder how this is done??

The items you have inquired about are banned due to them being a fire hazard. You don't want to be on a ship when there is a fire. It's simply not worth the risk. You might not leave your iron on in your room, but what about the person next door to you?

My son packed an English Premiere League soccer ball. When we unpacked it wasn't there. No note was there. Guest Services had no idea and said if it was taken, there would be a note. There wasn't a note. I chalked it up to it being stolen because if it was taken as a prohibited item, there would have been a note.

We bought a new ball in Mexico. We had no issue boarding the ship after our day in Mexico with the ball. Not a head turned. We still have that ball.

Disney gave me a bottle of wine and DS an arcade card for the missing ball but still had no answer as to where it went and didn't say it was prohibited.

I read Disney's official prohibited item list. The sports equipment listed are some sort of stick but nothing about soccer, baseball, volley or any other kind of balls.
