Reader Comments:

I have traveled many times with Disney Cruise Lines but they are making it more difficult to be able to bring what you might need on your cruise. I can see some of the items as being no-no's but I have to draw the line when it comes to power strips. There are not enough plugs in the rooms in order to charge more than 2 appliances,i.e. phones, iPads and so forth. Their prices keep going up and it is getting too expensive to travel with Disney. Disney has lost me this year on my cruise. I went with another cruise line. They just raised ticket prices again and it is getting to where you can't afford to go to Disney as much as you would like. I am a Disney fanatic and have been going every year since my children were little. Sometimes twice a year. I am disappointed with Disney and hope they come to their senses soon and realize that most people can't afford a nice vacation with them. Thank you.:(
