Whew. That feels good to get off my chest.

Anyone else?
I carried my own wine, margarita or rum n coke all over the ship in my newly purchased DCL cup to shows or dinner anytime I wanted and never paid a cork fee. Asked for wine glasses and received a kit that included an adorable plastic travel collapsible cork screw with DCL on it. Wine glasses stayed, corkscrew came home.

Also got a promotional bag rate that you are supposed to get if you buy a certain amount...except she gave us that bag deal without buying ANYTHING else!

Celebrated our 10th anniversary on board 3 weeks early son we could be together as a family. Mom n dads 45th is in June but we all still celebrated both milestones on cruise!

I was wondering about wine glasses since I want to carry my own wine on board. Who/where did you ask for glasses? :)

    Room attendant. But I preferred my break free DCL souvenir cup anyway and rarely used them but others did.

    We have your name now. You are no longer allowed on a cruise ship again. :sad::scared1::headache:



    OK, I give up..:sad: I wore white socks with my dark suit on Formal Night and as soon as I got to my table I pulled off my coat and tie. :sad::sad::sad:

    :surfweb: On the 1st morning we get room service/ ask for two coffee containers...
    Then the rest of the cruise I go and fill them up myself every morning/ grap some creamer & suger.....:coffee: aaahhhhhh!

    nothing like a good cup of cup on a Disney ship looking at the ocean or what ever port we are at from our Veranda!!!

    OK, I bring my own beer on board as well......:wave2:

    Robin & Angel "D" :thumbsup2

    We stock up on the big movie sized candy my kids can eat (see allergies) on shore at target for a dollar and bring that to the nightly shows rather than standing there reading ingredients (too much work while I'm on vacation) then paying a bazillion dollars (too cheap to do this when DD will eat one then ask why they don't taste like regular sour patch kids) for the snacks at preludes.

    Lol... this is more my wife than me... when we first visited the rainforest room on our first cruise, she came out in her housecoat and quickly asked under her breath, "should I be wearing a bathing suit"??

    I explained to her, yes... these are coed, public facilities... She quickly ducked back in to the changeroom! :rotfl:

    We also strongly considered hostnapping our stateroom host. Such a nice guy.

    With Disney unlike other cruise lines, we are allowed to bring our drinks on (not like having to sneak it on in Listerine bottles etc.) so not much of a confessional there. But some people insist you shouldn't bring your own to dinner. Our waiters never said a peep. We passed on the cork fee to their tips instead...

    We ordered coffee, oj and cranberry juice from breakfast room service. We had asked or room attendant to have ice in our room every afternoon. So in the morning we would sick the oj and cranberry juice in the grudge and in the afternoon DH would make screw drivers for himself and cape cods for me. We even ordered sliced limes for my drinks and for the caronas he carried on board. It was like having our own private bar in our room lol. We would make or drinks and take it with us to Evolutions every night

    LOL...I've worn shorts to dinner so many times I've lost count. I think I figured that out on the third cruise, that they really don't care. I don't do it on Formal night, but any other night, heck yeah!

    Thanks for this thread! What a way to confess! This is going to be fun!popcorn::popcorn::
    Yes, but it makes me what to confess :mic:
    We were running late for our excursion and forgot our camera in the room. I told my son to "RUN" to the room and get it. He took off full blast and RAN down the hall to get it so we were not late.:rolleyes2

    I love this thread. I was just on the 14 night west bound Panama Canal cruise on the Wonder. I've been so reluctant to say this, but here goes: After being on the Dream and Fantasy, I was sort of disappointed in the Wonder, it just seemed small and old. I love DCL and was on the Wonder years ago, and loved it then. The good news is, we will be on the Fantasy in January.

    I confess I did not wear shorts for dinner...ever! I don't think putting on pants and a shirt with buttons to be an ordeal. However, after sweating through our AP dinner (we were tucked into the rear corner) I confess to having bad thoughts of actually being comfortable in shorts on my next cruise. I have VERY dull fantasies, huh?

    Every day I would put the tube of lotion in my toilet kit so the room attendant would bring more. I ADORE the H2O body butter, sad that its not on the ship anymore.
