    I didn't get a chance to read through your entire list but here are my suggestions:

    Magnets for the AC bracket on the balcony door - your ac will turn off when you open it unless you have a magnet on it - nothing too heavy either or else it will fall off.

    Air freshener - a plug in is handy sometimes the rooms get moist from the AC and start to smell a bit.

    iPod - if you have an ipod and are bringing it make sure you bring the a/c adapter cord to plug it in to the tv so you can listen. Also, if you use your ipod alot you can buy a charger to plug into the regular plug then use your cord/usb cord to charge it

    Snacks - chocolate bars at the ROR gift shop are $2 each YIKES!

    Money - if you are the one to tip $1 is all you need for bartenders, maids and you can't get change from front desk...dollar dollar bills y'all!! hehehe

        I appreciate that my list is freaking long so I value that you even responded at all. I never thought of snacks. For the magnet would one from the fridge be fine? For tipping how much did you tip? I am planning one dollar bills but I am also wondering about for Chandlyn and bartender, etc.

          A magnet from your fridge should be fine! Yes, munchies are necessary!

          As far as tipping, I brought a few things from the dollar store with me. So I gave $1 - $2 and then gave a little something from the dollar store. I tipped $15 to our server at our wedding dinner - he almost fell to the floor he was shocked - we would tip $1 here or there for the bartenders depending on how many drinks we ordered. We also tipped $5 to our favourite bartender who remembered our favourites drinks from the first day we got there. I didn't tip Chandlyn but gave her a gift and I didn't tip Michael...although I should have.

          I was working with a very limited budget lol so dollar bills it was lol

            I am bringing stuff from the dollar store for the maids (our Jamaican buddy has told us what they like/need there) and maybe tipping them a bit ...I want redstripe in my room..*lol*!. For Chandlyn I was thinking of getting a gift set with perfume (Tan..your review gave me this idea) and tipping her. Bartenders I usually tip right off the bat (pool bar guys will probably get it first) and then again at the end of our stay. This usually ensures you get quick and friendly service :).
            I think that will probably be it in the way of tipping except when i return home..I will definately be tipping my TA.

                Angela ~ As far as wanting Redstripe in your room..there is a guy who will restock your bar..we gave him $1 and he gave us an extra 6 beers..tip more you get more but the fridges are small ;-)

                  I am working with a super fixed budget...do you think $25 is okay for Chandlyn? I don't think I can afford much more than that!
