I bring 1 2 liter bottle of Dr Pepper on with me. Even though it is a Coke product where I live it is not carried on the ship. I use it to take my meds with at night and I drink water or lemonade during the day. I have never held up the line with my 2 liter.
As far at FTTF goes...if you got the extra money, go for it!!! Not gonna ruin my vacation. I expect long lines to board any ship so I don't consider myself on vacation until I step foot on the ship. The ship is not gonna leave without me. (I am a Disney annual passholder and have been for MANY years so I am used to standing in lines LOL)
I agree with the picture idea. Let us look at them online when we get home and then order. I would personally probably buy more that way than I do on the ship.
My biggest pet peeve is people in the MDR in shorts and flip flops etc etc. We save and save to take our cruises so we are going to get all that we can out of them. The cruise line asks that you dress for dinner and that is exactly what we do. We enjoy every aspect of it.
Just my opinion
