    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. Do you know if they have to be rented or are first come, first serve?

    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.

    The quoted poster and myself both want to use our players on the trip to and from port, not on the ship itself. On Demand movies are a nice feature(although I have never had time to watch movies during the cruise), but won't be helpful on their airplane or in my car. It sounds as though portable DVD/Blu-ray players are acceptable anyway, but as I said, even if I wasn't sure, I would still pack it because, between heat and the possibility of theft, I would rather have Disney hold on to mine than leave it in a parked car for week.
