What to take on a Disney Cruise (or any cruise for that matter)...

There are SOOO many cruise list out there and I am doing this so that I can remember the "extras" we brought!  I have my mom to thank for most of these--she researched and then ordered on Amazon!  

One of our friends went about a year ago and said that they had little happies each night from "Mickey".  We loved that idea and copied it!  My sister had someone make these precious tags for each night.  Night one we did pajamas from Target--I loved the girls rompers and they boys glowed in the dark.  Fun!!! Other things we did--Disney toothbrushes, playing cards, coloring book (or word search) and crayons for the trip home, gummy snacks.  Only the pajamas cost more than a dollar, but the kids really looked froward to seeing what was left for them!

The rooms on a cruise are small--but they are very doable.  You can see magnets on the back of the doors.  They liked playing with those and moving them around.  This shoe holder was a big help.  There were two hooks that were in the room and I just used pipe clears and tied the hanger onto the hooks.   You can see I stored all sorts of stuff in them.

This clothes organizer was also very helpful.  I wish I had taken a picture on day 1 when it was still neat!  There were plenty of coat hangers in the room and I hung all of my clothes.  I hung this clothes organizer just over the rack and each kid had two shelves for their clothes.

These big clips were also a help!  Especially when we were at the pool on top of the boat--it was rather windy up there.

We had two drying ropes in our bathroom--but the clothespins were great.  I could hang a lot more clothes on them then I could if I had to drape them over the rope.

This tiny bathroom fan was also great.  It had a USB charger and I just plugged it into my phone charger.  We left it running a lot and I know it helped with humidity and clothes drying.

 These were fun for the doors.  This is definitely not a must but it is fun and helpful to make sure you are going into the correct room!  
On a side note they have something called fish extenders.  Its where you can sign up and do happies for others on the boat.  You leave a special thing on your door.  I am sooooo glad we didn't do this!  It gets expensive and is a time waster!

I was also glad to have this plug--you can't have a surge protector, but that was allowed.    Also, the lanyards were very helpful--and we were glad to have a few extras because one of mine lost his a few times!  Mine clipped on and the kids went around their necks.

As far as clothing...I didn't think I over packed.  I was actually kind of proud of myself.  We only had 4 bags between the 5 of us.  However, I still packed too much.  We went from swimsuits to dinner clothes.  Only once did we wear shorts and a shirt.
