    pixiedust:I read in another post that Mickey Bars are free when ordered from room service ... :yay:

    Is there anywhere else you can get Mickey Bars :mickeybar ? Are they really yummmy ... ??

    What else can you expect on a Disney cruise ...

    • Is there Disney themed :smickey: stationery that you can get from the Front desk to write letters etc
    • As a Disney first-time cruiser :sail: , do you get a lanyard with your cruise package ... or can you get one from the Front desk
    • Is pin-trading very active onboard the ships ... or is it mainly with the Cast members
    • If you make purchases aboard the ships, does Disney offer S&H services so you can ship those items back home :teleport:
    • How good are the onboard discounts if you book a future Disney cruise
    • Can adults tour any of the teen/children areas when you first board to see what they are like (our little boy at home is the four-legged kind :goodvibes :goofy: )
    • Just curious, are turkey legs that you get at WDW (at least when we were there 10 years ago) avail?
    • Are there "personalized" Disney items available, like the Mickey Ears
    • Are the movies avail on your TV :happytv: in your stateroom mainly Disney/family movies
    • Does anyone have the inside dimensions of the stateroom fridge ... wondering if I can fit several of the small-size aluminum beverage bottles :drinking1 inside
    • Are bridge / behind the scenes tours avail?
    • I know this is subjective, but is Palo as romantic :flower3: as Remy's in celebrating a special occassion?
    • Am anticipating a wonderful time aboard the Fantasy because it is Disney ... but do you find that others aboard really immerse themselves in the Disney spirit ... that fellow passengers tend to dress up more in Disney style? We will be participating in FE exchanges and decorating our stateroom door with magnets and are looking forward to that ... I guess DW and I are "anticipating" a Disney experience - it's like the difference between staying at a hotel off-site and staying at a Disney resort ... in both instances you get to visit Disney ... but staying on-site just provides a unique experience / atmosphere that I don't know how to describe ... I'm hoping that B2B cruises will provide that pixiedust: experience as we celebrate our 20th together:hug:. Last night my DW remarked how excited she is :cloud9: about our forthcoming trip so I just want to take that extra step to make it as special for her as she is to me ... yes I did have a sappy moment :sad2:

    Our DGD got a Mickey bar for dessert every night at supper in the MDR. She seemed to think they were wonderful. ;) I don't think they have turkey legs or personalize Mickey ears but we didn't look for this either. We had stationery in the desk in our cabin. The TV programs are largely Disney or stations Disney is affiliated with. First time cruisers don't get lanyards but can always buy one on board or before you leave (much cheaper). There are limited pin trading events scheduled and the cast members will trade but we didn't see much pin activity. That could vary depending on who is cruising. We saw a lot of little girls dressed as princesses and some Disney shirts but we were on the Wonder in Alaska so people were wearing coats a lot. I can't speak to your other questions but I'm sure others will. Have a great trip!

    I wouldn't say people "dress up" Disney. You'll see a VERY wide range of dress. Sure, there's lots of Mickey shirts, and pirate night is a real hoot with tons of people getting into the theme...but I wouldn't say it's really Disney themed dress all day, every day. But we have always felt that same Disney magic on a cruise! :wizard:

    Enjoy and happy anniversary!!! :cheer2:

    Anyone can visit the Kids' Clubs during Open House. I toured them on my last Disney Cruise - they were really neat! I wish I had kids to take on the ship!

    How about ordering a basket or something from Shirley to be put in your stateroom filled with all kinds of special things for her, to show her how special she is to you.

    I'm just imagining now the rich smoothy chocolatey taste as you bite ... into an ear ... :lmao: ... was hoping one could pop by somewhere and grab a Mickey Bar whenever you wanted one ... heard that there is a soft-serve icecream area ...



    Guess there must be enough room for me to store some boring chilled bottles of water and juice ... :rotfl2:



    In re: to the pin-trading, I'm more of a collector than an active trader. I love giving away pins more than receiving ... remember the fun we had during the Millennium Pin trading @ WDW in 2000. Not sure if it is that popular anymore, particularly with the current younger kids. Anyways, thank you both for your detailed responses ... much appreciated. :thumbsup2




    That is great - would love to see how much fun the kids areas are ... I'm still a kid at heart ...





    I knew there was someone out there outside of Disney that did baskets but could not remember the name ... thank you.
