Getting autographed soveniers on the ship

I know we can have the characters sign things similarly to the way we can in the parks when we get a photo with them, right?

But I know other people have had items autographed by the characters and then delivered to their stateroom later. How does one go about doing this? Are there any specifics I should know about?

Thanks for your input!

Based on what I read on the Cruise forum, you drop your item at Guest Services and they will have it signed and returned to you.

Here is a post about Pillowcases, you can do the same thing with the Decorate your own Vinylmations also.

I don't get the pillowcase thing. I can understand a photomat or an actual autograph book, but what do you do with the pillowcase? I wouldn't put it on a pillow....

They will pretty much do anything within reason and taste. All you need to do is take the item to Guest Services and ask. Don't bring your thong.

Thong is only for the crew. I have Mickey boyshorts, though...

Who all is 'on the ship' as far as autographs are considered?

I would assume:
Mickey
Minnie
Donald
Goofy
Pluto
Chip & Dale

What about:
Captain Hook
Peter Pan
Princesses?

Todd -

I've done these with the picture mats the last 2 cruises.

Basically I have taken a Photo Mat to guest services, usually just before the life drill. The item (in my case the mat) has to be in a bag or envelope when you give it to them. With the item they ask that you supply the sharpies you wish they use (I throw in assorted colors). Your bag or item is then returned to your cabin the night before you depart with your markers, etc.

If you are using a photo mat you want to make sure you take painters tape and tape the edges that go under the frame so that the signatures don't go out of bounds and look weird when you place your mat into the frame.

I have these in my office at home with our favorite photo of the cruise. it's really a unique souvenir that doesn't cost anything. They both have the Fab 5 and Princesses. Not sure who else, if anyone else, has signed them. I will need to look

The pillow case is just what you thought. Folks do put them on pillows and then use them for decor. One of my cruise mates last year picked up a sports jersey in DTD and had that signed. He was then going to have it framed for their game room. I thought that was a neat idea.

Guest Services will tell you one item per cabin as they are usually swamped with these items and they only have a short time to do this on the 4 days.

Oh and I put my photo mat in a padded envelope, in the middle of my suitcase between items to ensure it stays flat and doesn't get cracked. Haven't had a problem yet.

Hope that helps.

I am leaning toward doing this, just can't decide do I want the white one with multi-colored sigs or a black one with silver signatures

Too bad it is only one per state room. I think one like the photo would be fun but a black vinyl with gold and silver autographs would look quite elegant!

That is a cool idea. Where do I get a black or white vinyl Mickey?
Oh...and what size should I get?

They sell them at most places that carry the Vinylmation dolls in the parks. They are 9" tall & cost $39.95. Annual passholders are eligible for a discount at World of Disney and select other stores.

This is a link to the Glow in the Dark one: http://www.disneystore.com/vinyl-fig...269509/301000/
