    I was just wondering if anyone else kept their towel animals they got at the Disney resorts? We ended up getting 4 different ones over the course of the week that we have brought home. I was going to leave them because I assumed they were just for us to enjoy in the hotel room, but my new husband tried to convince me they were ours to keep. I was still unsure about it, but we ended up packing them and bringing them home anyway, aware that we might get charged for them.

    Well today my husband checked his credit card statement and discovered he was charged an extra $30 from the Caribbean Beach Resort. We are assuming this is for the stolen towel animals, which we are perfectly fine with. They are very cool souvenirs and they are more then worth the $30 they have charged us. I have the swans sitting in our bathroom to remind us of our wonderful trip to Disney!

    That's odd...last July we stayed at CBR and I stole a couple of towel animals. We were not charged for them. I thought Disney encouraged people to take them with. I could be mistaken though. They are great little souviners!

    This is such a hot topic.....I can see both sides. Last year at ASMo we were made two towel animals and we brought them both home (with no charge). In the lobby one morning Mousekeeping was making towel animals and giving them away (again, no charge). But then there's the people that are against taking them because it's like stealing.

    So I dunno. I'm glad you took them, I'm glad you are ok with being charged (as would I have been). Have you tried calling the resort just to clarify the charge? Maybe it's for something you forgot about....

    Sandy :)

    Chantelle...I think you should call and ask what the $30. Charge was for. If they say the towels, then great, but at least you will know for sure.:confused3

    hmmmmmmm, now I don't know what to think as there was a whole thread on this somewhere a while back (I know I'm so vague:guilty: ) but I thought the general concencus (sp?) was that they were made out of 'unusable' towels so free to take. Will keep my eye on this thread - I don't want to be a thief!

    I never thought to take the towel animal. They charge those who are Dis Vacation Club members to have them changed. Maybe that is why.

    It would never have occurred to me that they would be something we could take with us! Towels aren't thinks you take from hotel rooms, you know? But if it's okay then I'm totally jealous because I thought they were adorable!!

    That's kind of a cute idea- I like putting the swans in the bathroom! We might have to save some of our favorites from our honeymoon!;)

    I have one from our last wdw trip sitting on my tv in the lounge, we were not charged for them, I take them home from whatever country I'm in if one has been made.
    I would call them and ask them what the charge is for it may be something your purchased and then forgot about maybe

    That's funny!!! When on vacation at WDW I've been known to take the soaps (and little shampoos too) daily in hopes that they will keep replacing them for me to take...and they usually do! :lmao: :rotfl2: :lmao:
