    First off, we just got back from the 1/31 Magic cruise and it was awesome!! The only low point of the trip was the fact that my 9 year old daughter lost/had her pin lanyard stolen. I understand that she is responsible for her belongings and ultimately the blame is on her that she took the lanyard off while we were in Studio Sea singing karaoke. However, if a cast member had found it it would have been turned into guest services without question. We left Studio Sea at around 10:45 and she left it on the table. It is unfortunate that some person or persons had to take the lanyard (about 15 pins on it from her first trip to Disney, our 2007 cruise and of course some pins I had just bought her). I had a heartbroken little girl crying herself to sleep on the last night of the cruise. I guess not everyone on board was feeling the "magic".

    Oh I'm so sorry! :( That stinks- especially when it happens to a young child. :(
    Kids forget things so easily- atleast in my experience with mne. LOL I have to watch them like a hawk. Last trip (DL) we took a bench break and DS10 left our lanyard (with pins and this lanyard was my favorite-one I'd gotten at Epcot years ago that was perfect to hold a water bottle at the end of it- and it had my favorite water bottle on the end of it) on the bench- we'd only walked a SHORT distance away before I realized he didn't have it- and ran back.. gone already. :( ugh people nowadays. :(

    That really stinks. On our last cruise it was my son's sunglasses. I don't know what is wrong with some people. Guess we'll be leaving our best pins at home just to be safe. Thanks for the warning.

    I am sorry this happened. I would still try and contact Lost and Found, in the event it does get turned in.

    sorry to hear that :(

    Surprised that no one would turn it in, hopefully they have bad carma coming their way.

    Send me your address and on our next cruise I'll send one along.

    :(
    On the flip side- quite awhile ago on a solo trip to WDW (I believe it was Jan 2003) I lost my sunglasses at epcot. now THAT is one thing I'm really bad about leaving everywhere but usually at places I can turn around and go get them like mom's house, etc. It wasn't just any "no big deal" for me because I have a hard time finding sunglasses (ears are slightly not even and I have to have the nosepieces or it won't fit me right/etc.) I was so sad (and my eyes are sensitive to sunlight- I NEED sunglasses) but later I went to lost and found and they were there! I was so tickled pink. :)

    when we lost the lanyard/pins/waterbottle we even searched the top of nearby trashcans thinking maybe someone just took the pins and chunked the rest. No such luck. :( Still haven't found the perfect lanyard like that one was. LOL I know how bummed I was so I can only imagine how much harder that feeling is on a little 9yr old. :(

    I will say that the Magic crew and guest services was awesome. There was a table of teens behind us at Karaoke and this cute blonde cast member said she would check in the Stack... make an announcement that a little girl lost her lanyard in Studio Sea and was upset. So... they really did all they could. We checked lost and found before we left the boat and nada.
    A big lesson learned for my girl.

    don't they have cameras? They must!

    If so, your window of time is small, have them check!

    Our Disney beach towel was stolen just minutes after we bought it at Castaway Cay. We were pretty devastated that such a thing could happen. By the end of the night, once it was confirmed that it was not in the lost and found, a replacement towel "found" us! We were so impressed with Disney and now we are anxious for our second DCL cruise next month. We'll definitely make sure to keep an extra eye on all of our personal belongings!

    It's so sad when something as that happens to a child:sad1: My DD (also 9) lost her Tinkerbell cap at MGM studios a few years ago. We checked lost and found numerous times. It almost ruined her day.:sad2:

    My ds8 has lost a few caps (not in great condition either) and they've never made it to lost and found.

    Oh well.

    One time we left my entire backpack with dh's wallet, camera, etc. in it on the Kali river rapids. It was actually all there when we remembered. It just went on a ride without us.

    DH also dropped our unrenewed annual pass when pawing through his wallet. I had visions of us opening the window and throwing money out. Somebody actually turned it in.

    Did you talk with Guest Services on the ship? I have had wonderful experiences after talking with Guest Services -- even offers to replace what was lost.

    I feel your pain. Been there, done that with our children, too - blankies, most favorite doll, special hat purchased on vacation, etc. So true, on one hand, we all have to learn the hard way to be more careful with our things, but on the other it breaks a parent's heart to witness the shock and grief the child experiences at the loss of their cherished possession.

    Last September, on our cruise, I think I witnessed someone stealing a child's toy. It happened so fast. I was sitting on one of the couches in the Nassau port center waiting for my husband to return from the information desk when I saw a brand new stuffed Mickey (or maybe it was Minnie-can't remember) sitting on the planter across from me. It looked like a child either left it there or, maybe, a kid dropped it on the floor and a passerby picked it up and put it there in case someone came back for it. It occurred to me I should take it to the lost and found. Before I got up to retrieve it, a young woman sat down on the couch next to the planter where the doll was sitting, noticed the doll and picked it up. She turned it all around in her hands, looked around, and then quickly shoved it under her thighs. I can't know for sure that it wasn't hers. The way she furtively looked all around and then hid it under body was just kind of suspicious.
