ideas for carrying medallion around the ship?

Thanks for all the suggestions, pictures, product links, and the laughs... 😂

I know the medallion is about the size of a quarter but was wondering how heavy it is? and the plastic case... is that heavy and how big is it? 

The plastic case weighs .3 oz, (2/1/8"x 3") the Medallion weighs .4 oz.

I also thought of another cool idea for after the cruise... I'm thinking to put a magnet behind the medallion and stick it on our fridge for a souvenir! This would be much nicer than collecting a bunch of cruise cards in a box somewhere I'll never dig up again.

There's no need to attach magnet to the back. The Medallion have a built in magnet so they'll stick on their own.

I used to keep cruise card on a lanyard but the increased weight of the medallion made a lanyard uncomfortable on our Regal cruise so my husband offered to carry it in his pocket since we are usually together or I just left it in the cabin.  Later I realized that would show that I went in a lot of men's rooms if they were tracking where I went. Giggle.

Did you?????

We got the bands from Princess that we ordered to come with our medallions.  They are a nice, soft silicone that must have something magnetized in the holder are because the band sort of sucks the medallion into place.  I think they are $12 on board and $10 + shipping (that amounts to a total of $12 each) if you order them when you order your medallions.

Here's a photo of my watch with the holder and medallion:

Love this idea. I wouldn't need a second thing to carry.  I leave Saturday and this wouldn't get here until 1/2 through our trip.  Next time. 😊

 Even better!! Just have to remember not to put it on our cruise door or it will be unlocked all the time 😂

We bought the rubber wrist bands from the OR store.  $10 each.  and magnetic.  With the same tech and feel of the Disney Powerbands that you get in the parks for entry and fast passes. East to wear, reliable, and they look fine.

I suppose with a nice big glass of water you could swallow it and then it would be with you all day. Of course, you would probably have to repeat this process every other day or so!

 

Scanning that for a drink could be awkward.

The Medallion itself and post #60. 

I'm not sure why they built a magnet into them since some people can't use a magnet near their pacemaker even though it not all that powerful.

I think the idea was to keep the Medallion stuck in the jewelry they sell on board.

Joke taken but when the Medallion is next to the entry screen it has to be separated a ways off to reset itself before it reactivates & unlocks once again.

if you look at the reviews, somebody actually posted a pic with medallions in these clips.

we used them in May ... seems like once we had to take the medallion out of the clip ... but can't remember what for ...

 

worked well , and that's a good pic as it shows some of the writing on the OM is hidden by the clip

 

and yes, our OM's have been on the fridge since then ... no need to attach a magnet at all

Does that mean you can 'stick em' on the cabin wall, cause the walls are metal?

Another vote for these!! I just ordered them for my husband and myself. They come in a variety of colors, but we just bought the black and white one.

Hi everyone,

Are the Medallions themselves an extra cost?  And are there shipping charges?

Thank you!

Thank you so much for the best laugh I have had all week. But you have made me think about something that never crossed my mind.

We have at least a dozen Disney "magic bands" from visits to the parks. I'm wondering if the medallion would fit into one of these. They are silicon and have a removable disc but since we haven't cruised with the medallion yet I don't know if the size is compatible. Has anybody tried it?

I'm curious if Disney provides the wrist bands for free?
