    Okay. I know there is going to be a very simple answer for this question but I just have to ask. When charging things to one's room, what keeps me from charging something to someone else's room? Or someone else from charging their pitcher of daquiris to MY room?

    Also, do you get a paper receipt for every charge transaction? :confused3

    Your KTTW card is your "charge card". It must be presented with every purchase.

    You do sign a charge slip too. Since I'm not the bookkeeper in the family I couldn't tell you if you get to keep a copy. IF I get a copy I just stuff it in my pocket and give them to the DW at the end of the day (if I remember:) )

    The KTTW card is also the access card to your stateroom. So if someone else has it, you are REALLY in trouble. :disrocks:

    Yes, you are supposed to give them your KTTW card. But sometimes, they just take your room number. Like when you're in the theater, just before a show, or if you're at the pool, and say something like "My DW has the key", they will write down your stateroom. They do have you sign a charge slip (gives you the chance to tip you know!), and they give you a paper copy of a receipt.

    Now if you were a very sneaky type person, you could charge things to someone else. Assuming the mis-charged person was smart enough to check their bill, and wise enough to remember what they spent, mis-charged person would go to guest services and say "hey, I have a problem with the 5 drinks that were charged to me in the Walt Disney theater last night. They were during the early show, and I was at dinner then, so I couldn't have charged them." DCL will probably remove the charges, and they will pull the paper record of the transaction. If this was simply a mistake (i.e. the mis-charger mixed up two of his room numbers), he would have signed his own name. DCL figures out who it is and fixes the charges.

    I personally have never had anything mis-charged in my 3 cruises. A couple of times I had forgotten charges, and stopped by guest services. The first thing they do is pull up the record to see what was bought. Last time, it showed a charge from Mickey's Mate, and since I hadn't been in the store, I didn't think it was my charge. They pulled it up and said "Two sets of swim goggles, sold yesterday?" Oh yeah, I did buy googles up by the pool when my kids broke theirs.

    Hope this helps you out.
