There are tons of threads on this just look around a bit or use the search tool. Pillow cases, photo mats & vinylmations are all really popular items to have signed.

Driving home now so can't post a pic..but I purchased one of the animators palette plates in the fantasy gift shop and had it signed by the characters. Turned out great!

I took a standard pillow case, which I left with a pack of Sharpies, a note saying it was going to be a wedding present for my friend and a bag of candy and this is what I got back.

I saw an image of the vinylmation someone has signed. I LOVE the look and will be ordering one to have signed.

Where do you leave these items to get signed? In your room?

No you leave them with Guest Services. They will be returned to your stateroom at the end of the cruise.

Here is what we are having signed on our 5/19 cruise on the Fantasy:

http://i1118.photobucket.com/albums/k608/sues14/Items%20for%20DisBoards/DSC01383.jpg

The bank came from Target, and has a little chalkboard area to it. I used silver permanent marker to add 'Our Disney Fund' to it. We leave it accessible all of the time, and change and $1 and $5 bills go into it regularly. I think last count had just over $180 in it.

So, packing it might be a trick but that is what we will be taking for signatures.....can't wait!!!

What a great idea! I know the local craft stores sell similiar banks. Actually I have a blank one collecting dust as we speak....
Thanks for sharing

We didn't know we could do this on our first Disney Cruise on the Dream in August. We are going out of NYC on the Magic in August so I can't wait. My kids love getting autographs. I am thinking the pillowcase might be the way to go. I am thinking of getting them embroidered at a local store with kids names and Cruise info.

thanks for the tips! Kristina

We did a black Vinylmation, because the Disney Store online was having a great sale ($15 + S&H):

I know I've seen some really cute Mickey-themed things in the dishes section at Target, on an end-cap. Some of those might work well, too.

What did you use for the silver marker? A paint pen or do they have silver sharpies?

The black and silver look sharp!

It's probably a silver sharpie. More reliable and less likely to leak! We love silver sharpies (most of the kids' baseball caps are black and the silver is the only way to get a name on them!)

I've only ever done photo mats. Maybe I'll get a pillowcase for my nephew next time.

White with colored sharpies:

And a black one with a silver sharpie:

I used the black one for one of our formal pics and it turned out nicely. :)

Yup, silver Sharpie! It really does look awesome and it sits on a shelf in my kids' room as a perfect souvenir of our trip. The character cast members are absolute pros at writing on these things, too... they were able to perfectly go over joints and bends without any problems.

We've had photo mats signed in the past (see example below). We added the scrapbooking decorations first, as then it is clear what the orientation should be. If you go this route and want a picture from the cruise to go in it, make sure to ask the photographers to take at least one shot in the orientation you are looking for. (Also remember that the Shutters photos come in 8x10 or 6x8--if you have a mat with a 5x7 opening, you'll have to reprint the photo.)
This time we are taking a white 9" vinylmation.
I love the silver sharpie on black! I'll have to think about that for a mat or vinylmation for next time. :)

I got those from either Michaels or Joann's craft stores-- both carry the Disney line. I think Target does as well. Or, you can go to your local scrapbooking store too. I've never seen a very good selection at the stores at WDW.

Great ideas - thanks. Do they sale the 9 inch vinylmations on board? We leave Thursday so no time to order.

If you are having a photo mat signed, try to find a way to mark off a bit on the edges (someone advised blue painters tape) so the characters dont sign there. I did not do this and once I placed the mat into the frame some of the signatures were cut off. No big deal but easily preventable if I would have thought ahead.

They did on our October 2011 Dream cruise. We also got the small 3 inch DCL vinyls and had Captian Gus sign the back of them during the captians signing. The kids love them. He had a silver and black sharpie with him so any colored vinyl would work.

You'll be hard pressed to find the blank ones on board but if you are flying in a day prior & have time stop by DTD (Downtown Disney) and check the vinylmation store. Black & white will be the hardest to find! Good luck! ;)

Love, love, love the black Vinylmation with silver autographs!!! Thanks for posting that photo, GooniesAndy! --- For anyone else interested, the Disney Store online has the 3" Vinylmation in both black & red for $4.99 each. The red one could also be cute with white or black signatures. I ordered 2 of the black ones for our upcoming cruise.

Cool ideas. I like the pillow case idea. So did you leave these in your stateroom and your steward took care of it or did you take them around to all of them? We are DCL Newbies.

You leave the item you want signed with guest services on the first day, all the signing is done 'backstage' and the item will be left in your stateroom on the last night.

We have done the photo mattes before, but love the Vinylmation for our next cruise.

I also saw some photos on the board where someone had purchased wooden letter (first initials for her kids) and had those signed. They came out great!

Thanks for the link!!! I was waiting for someone on ebay to get the black ones in stock for $6 each/+1.50 shipping!! Since I needed 4, this saved me $5!! $5 for a drink on the cruise!!! (PLUS I have a 'rebates' site that I will get 3.5% back) :cool1:

I have never seen the plain ones on board before...
If you go to the Disney Store online right now they only have the 9 inch in white, they are having a sale on the small ones but they only have red and black.

If you go on to Ebay they often have these for a decent price, I wouldn't pay more than $30 for a 9 inch one

04-23-2012, 12:57 AM
Thank you for your reply :). So do you recommend the 9" to be signed then? We are staying at the AKV before our cruise and are thinking of going to Downtown Disney the night before. Do you happen to know if these are available at either of these locations? I checked the white ones on the Disney store online but with shipping to Canada it is almost $70 for one :eek:.

I was wondering the same thing. I have a few of them I ordered a while ago form the Disney store. I can't imagine them being big enough to sign. Those are some pretty talented characters if they were able too. I guess I can't hurt to bring them.
