    My kids were chosen to be honorary pin traders and they felt like they were so blessed to be up with the crew. It was their first Disney cruise and visit and they started off with one pin when we arrived at DL and they came home with over 25 each. When people heard it was their first time they just gave them pins and didn't want any pins traded in return. Those people who were all involved made a cruise more special than it already was.

    Is DCL like carnival in the fact that all food and tea water and juice are included in the price of the cruise, or do you have to pay extra for some of the food and drinks?

    HI!

    On DCL the only extra food costs are for their special restaurants Palo/Remy and snacks outside of the theater. As far ask drinks go, tea, milk, sodas, juice are free from the drink station and at dinner. I'm not sure about sodas from room services. Grown-up drinks and smoothies are extra.

    Hope that helps.

    Soda from room service comes in a can and costs about 2 dollars.

    Also, you can bring the one the large Mickey vinylmations for signatures. If you can find one in white, it would be really cute. You can specify what signatures you want: classic characters, princesses etc. :listen:

    If you use the "Order breakfast" hanger for room service...which we love to do...don't hesitate to write notes. Cranberry juice isn't listed, but we write it in, as well as ask for extra cream.
