    Lightbulb Take Your Hotel Home

    I got this from WDW News Today:


    Disney began a new program today, where they will be selling items that guests in most of their resort hotels see and use on a regular basis. The Disney Resort Collection website is selling everything from linens to bath accessories that you can now make a part of your home. All of the items for sale are new of course, nothing in the collection is used like the hotel items you may purchase through Mousesurplus on Ebay. There is not much distinctly Disney in the collection yet, other than a Mickey Mouse lamp you’ll find if you stay at the Grand Floridian Resort. To see what the collection has to offer and maybe make some purchases, visit the collection HERE.
    This is such a great idea!

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I have bookmarked that URL for my wife's benefit. I think she's going to flip when she finds out she can buy Official Disney mattresses and bedding

    I am right with her! I had my husband call down there when we were looking for a mattress a year or so ago! Now I want one of those because I sleep so well on them!

    If you've got a cast member friend, ask them if they could take you to property control where they have a lot of discounted merchandise and stuff from the hotels. There were even a couple old arcade games in the back which would have been neat to pick up, but I didn't have the money or space in my car :P

    The Quality Suites hotel in Anaheim actually has a price list next to the vanity with towel prices. I guess they are tired of getting them stolen so now they tell you how much they cost! Maybe make the guests feel guiltier. I wonder if it works. Or maybe that's what they tack on to your bill if you do take some.

    There was one hotel I stayed at on Daytona Beach that was really disgusting, but that's a different story. Anyways, to make the trip even worse, they had no towels in our room but had a sign that said the same thing "if there are any missing towels, you will be asked to pay for them." Well, we told front desk this, and other complaints about the room, and they couldn't care less about it and still ended up charging us for towels that we never had to begin with. Last time I went up to Daytona, it looks like that place closed down and is now an empty lot. That just made my day

    The only thing that peeked my interest was the Mickey lamp.

    Off topic - Doesn't really matter in this case since the place closed down but I like to post a review on TripAdvisor or Expedia when I stay in a hotel anywhere. It helps to read other traveller's reviews when you are trying to decide between different hotels.

    Mouse Surplus has actually been doing this for awhile. It's just only recently that it sort of became a "marketing ploy".

    If you check out their auctions it's not things like towels. It's the bedskirts and comforters. No sheets or towels, those are too "disposable". They also have wallpaper, fabric, chairs, curtains, light fixtures and even phones... and a lot of other decorative stuff from the hotels. It's neat if you have the cash.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    I wasn't the one in charge of deciding where to go, nor did my opinion count. The person in charge wanted a cheap hotel that doesn't look that cheap. It looked decent on the outside and seemed big enough to do well, but I guess they didn't do enough research on it, oh well :P
