    If you are really craving root beer, you can order one in the restaurants/lounges. They come in a can and cost $2.

    As DCL uses Coke products, be aware the Barqs has added caffeine.

    HI-C pink lemonade or fruit punch
    Sprite
    Sprite Zero
    can't remember the others

    You could bring on your own rootbeer. I have done that for my youngest who loves rootbeer.

    You could possibly try the single serve drink mixes...you could mix them up for one drink at a time or bring a container to mix up a couple quarts at a time.
    I really enjoy the raspberry green tea and the peach mango green tea by Crystal Light. I'm planning to bring several single-serving flavors to have lots of options.

    No, I meant shopping malls in Japan. I'm there quite often and discovered that you can get much more Disney stuff there than, for example, in Vienna, where I'm from.

    I am a Dt. Dew drinker and since that is a Pepsi product would it be possible for me to have a case sent with our luggage to our stateroom?

    And for those of you that like the little packets to flavor your water bottles you might want to check out the Mio flavor things. We've tried the Fruit Punch (this one works really good to kill the theme park water flavor in the fountains), Peach Mango (my favorite) and the Sweet Tea (doesn't really taste like hurt your teeth sweet southern tea so it is pretty good).

    If you wish to bring your own sodas on board, you must carry them on with you. They can not be in your checked luggage. This is DCLs rule, and although there are people here who say they give cases of water to the porters or put stuff in their checked bags for the porters, how would you feel if one of your cans exploded in your suitcase, ruining clothing, and perhaps ruining someone elses, if the stuff leaked out? Not you personally, but in general. So if DCL has no issues with you bringing it on, as long as you bring it, you will be fine.

    You can bring just about anything you want on board. We brought wine boxes, wine bottles, cans of soda and a case of water. I don't care for their coffee, and choice of creamers, too much, so I brought a bag of single serve flavored coffee creamers with me. I took some to every meal.

    Good to know. We've never cruised before so this is all new to me and I hadn't even thought about an exploding soda in luggage. I have no problem walking around with my case of Dew and everyone will be safer from my non-Dew mood swings if I have it with me on the cruise.

    Is there ginger ale available on board? We are sailing concierge - if I contact shoreside will they be able to arrange ginger ale in our cabin?

    There is ginger ale available in cans at the bar and probably though room service so you should have no problem.
