I didn't bother with the lanyard and kept the KTTW card in my cargo pocket and the wife has a phone case with a credit card pocket. The new Navigator app has an onboard text messaging system so, we carried our phone around instead of the old Wave room phones.
I did carry the Wave phone around when we had the kids checked into the kids clubs.

I don't believe so. The lanyards are for returning DCL cruisers. If you're a first time DCL cruiser = no lanyard.

That said, Concierge guests can certainly request just about anything they want.

No, you will not. You will get a gold colored KTTW card which signals anyone to whom you hand a card that you are concierge. Lanyards indicate to the crew that you are a repeat cruiser and how many times you have cruised.

There are Disney themed lanyards for sale in the gift shops.

I honestly can't say what the concierge might be able to do for you if you asked, but the silver, gold, and platinum lanyards are supposed to be for those who have "earned" them in the same way the gold KTTW cards are for those who have paid for them. Concierge guests who have cruised DCL before will get a lanyard based on their status.

Hi,
Previously cruised on NCL, after first cruise bought a retractable key ring holder which clipped on to my belt, it had a little alligator clip on the end of it, once I boarded went to the service counter and had them punch an oval hole with which to
clip the card onto. Reason for using this, the card when retracted stayed in my pocket and could pull it out about 2 ft to open state room door, also with the clip could easily detach for drink orders etc. Worked good for me. Not sure if hole can be punched in the Disney cards. Looking forward to Disney Fantasy 4 Nov. All the Best

It's not advisable to punch a hole in the KTTW card. There's a chip in it somewhere (can't tell where), and it could be damaged. But, then you could just get a new card if that happened.

The other problem with punching a hole in a KTTW card is that formerly that was the cue that the card had no charging. This was done on children's cards. Supposedly that was done away with some time ago, but you might still be questioned about a card with a hole in it. If you go to GS and ask about punching the hole and if it will cause any difficulty as well as what locations on the card are safe.
