That's a fantastic idea! Let me know if you find one - maybe I can find one on ebay.

I understand the replacement cost if it is damaged or lost and never found. Is there a "Oh No! I left it on a table by the pool" and it was turned in option available?

They're an OEM item available to corporate purchasers. If you look at the User Guide PDF linked, there's a special tool required to install a belt clip.

I'm going to make myself sound like a complete germophobe but does anyone happen to know if they clean these phones in between cruises?

I was going to go to Claire's and try to find a purse-like thing so that DD (age 7, nearly 8) can carry the phone with her if she wants it. I figure if we give her one that goes across her body, we can let her do stuff with her new friends alone for short periods of time.

She's already suggested that she might want to do this, so we'd want her to have the phone with her. Given her propensity to lose everything, an across the body purse (that she is forbidden to remove) would be the best option for her. I figure if I can find something pink and glittery, she'll be ok keeping it on.

Just go to Walmart, Toys r Us, Best Buy, etc... and look for a Golla pouch that'll clip to your lanyard, belt loop or bag.

nope you don't, I assume they will be cleaned the same way the phone and remotes are cleaned in the rooms.

I always bring my disinfectant wipes when I go on vacation, you should see the color of the wipe after I washed the tray on the plane

THANK YOU soooo much for coming home and looking out for your OCD DIS Family with such details. I actually like the phone option instead of the pagers. I remember the kids club was paging me to tell me my DD was having a hard time breathing when I was in Palo and it would have been nice to get that from a live voice on the phone.
As far as the $250 fee, oh well, we had a $125 fee with the pager. Just treat it the same way. If you did not loose the pager, you are safe with the phone. The question of if you have to pay the fee if it is lost and turned in; that answer is "NO". I turned in a pager last cruise that I found under a table at Topsiders. When taking it to guest services, they looked at the number on the back and called the SR of the Guest to tell them it was at GS. The CM, said; "they should buy you a drink for saving them $125 heh? I just left and never knew who the guest were. As far as a clip, that would be nice as there was one on the pager. Remember they slid into the case. I do not wear pockets either and I usee to clip my pager onto my lanyard. I guess I will have to now find a couple of phone totes. Maybe a camera sling/tote will work. They have clips.
As far as my children swimming, being irresponsible with the phone; not worried about that... My kids will not have them INCLUDING my teenager. The phones are meant for adults I am sure. For communication to the parents; especially with the kids club. I always know where my kids are on the ship if they are not with us. We do not allow "free willy" roaming. IF our children need to get in touch with us, they need to tell a CM or call us from a wall phone. Why would they need a phone? The kid tells you, I am going to the clubs with Karen and then we are going to the movies. OK, now you know where they are. You then say "ok Becky, meet us back in the room at 4:10 for dinner when the movie is over". Becky and Karen better be where they said if I am the parent!!! Becky better be back to the room at 4:10 or Becky looses her "freedom" on the ship. I guess we have never allowed our kids in 1st, 2nd, 3rd or even 4th grade at that matter roam free and us not to know where they are. What are they going to call and tell me? We would have communicated our plans when we saw each other... EMERGENCY, use a ship phone!
As far as cleaning.... No big deal, just like the phone in the room, it get wipped down with my handi dandi wipes before my family ever uses it...
I am Happy they are set to vibrate. Nothing would be more spoiling than phones ringing during the shows, during dinner or even worst, during a movie.
Besides the CLIP; I have to give Disney a they did this one right... Two phones, two parents, direct communication. GOOD JOB!

Does anyone know if 2 phones are provided in all guest rooms, or only in those with children under 9 or so who need to be checked in and out?

We have one stateroom with 2 children 9 and under, but the other stateroom has two adults and an 11 year old child. I was wondering particularly if the stateroom with the 11yr old would have the option since they do not have to sign in and out when going to and from the kids club.
Thanks!

I'm curious about this too.... sorta the same situation with 2 rooms/family of 5.
I'm HOPING we can use these to keep up with teens... oh how much wonderful this would be! They can answer texts and calls- but getting them to write down their next move and leave a note is apparently almost impossible. LOL

It is two phones for every stateroom, suites(I believe) get 4.


Do you think you could put one in a zippered lanyard pouch? Trying to figure out what it the best way for my dd to carry it. Thought about an cross over the shoulder small purse, but we had planned on using the lanyards so I thought if I found a zippered pouch, that might work ??? any ideas. thanks much.

DCL Wave Phone - Size Comparison by ssanders79, on Flickr

From the size comparison, it looks like the Aquapac Mini would be the right size for the Wave Phone to go to someplace wet.
