Disney Cruise Line Institutes New Policy for Door Decorations

If you're taking a Disney cruise and can't wait to decorate your stateroom door, listen up. Disney Cruise Lines announced a new policy that forbids guests from decorating their doors using adhesive products. Guests violating the rule will face a $100 fine.

The new policy, which is effective immediately, states that all passengers must refrain from using any kind of adhesive " including removable gel adhesives " on their stateroom doors. Any over-the-door decorations are also forbidden. Magnetic door decorations are the only kind of decorations allowed on stateroom doors.

Disney Cruise Line says the policy is being instituted because the adhesives are causing damage to the finish on the doors, and the over-the-door decorations have been causing damage to the stateroom doors and trim. Passengers will find a letter containing this new policy in their staterooms.

Passengers who are found with decorations on their stateroom doors will be reminded of the policy and if the decorations are not removed, the passenger faces a $100 fee to cover the cost of repairs, according to Disney's Media Relations Manager Jacqueline Lorenzetti.

No adhesives totally makes sense, and I'm not shocked that Disney is actually going to start selling door decorations in the gift shop. The part of this that I'm surprised by is the over the door hangers. It makes sense when you think about it though.

I honestly thought adhesive decorations already weren't allowed and they had to be magnetic only, so this obviously isn't a shock to me. Luckily the one door dec I'm bringing (a whiteboard) is magnetic anyway!

I guess people were using those sticky jelly window cling things too, and they were wrecking the finishes.
