pillowcases- questions!

Hi all!

We're heading to our second cruise, this time the Wonder (did the 7 night Western on Magic a few years ago) and traveling with family who have never gone on Disney Cruise Line. Don't think they've been to WDW either, come to think of it. Anyway, the kids will be meeting for the first time and I thought I'd follow the lead of several of you and have pillowcases signed as a surprise. Since it's last minute, I picked up 4 white pillowcases at Target and washed (and ironed- boy were they wrinkled) and got some fabric markers at Michael's. So, here are the questions....


1. Take them to Guest Services once we're at sea the first day?

2. Do I pick them up or they deliver to room?

3. They definitely do this on the 3 night?

4. Keep the yellow marker or ditch it?

Thanks all!

1-We took ours to Guest Services the day we embarked on the cruise.
2-They deliver them to your room the last night
3-Not sure- was on 7 night......
4-I would skip the yellow marker, just my preference, would hate for it to not show up.

We just came off the 3 day cruise. I took a photo matte to guest services the very same day we boarded and they returned it to my room on the last day. It looks so cute. I had different colored sharpies in a baggie and had it all in a mailing envelope. When I have time I am going to post a trip report about our very first cruise!! The good and the bad.

Here is an example of my pillowcase from the 7day western dropped off on day 1 given back to me on the last night

Would get rid of yellow marker

On the 4-day I had to pick it up from Guest services. Please bear in mind on the shorter cruises CM's have a lot less time to get this done, so you might not get lots of autographs. Some people have reported not getting anything, however that's not the norm. It's worth a try for sure.

I had 19 characters sign my matte on my 3 day. I was so happy!

I had the back of a kid's Tshirt signed last cruise. I bought the Tshirt at the Disney store before I went and it had Disney Princesses on the front. I had the back signed with just the names of the princesses. Turned out great. pj

If you are able, would you please post pictures of your pillow case, matte, or anything you left a guest service to have signed. TIA

I used Sharpies one cruise...they run when you wash. You can get fabric markers at a craft store such as Joann's or Michaels.

You can use Sharpies without them running in the wash. You have to set them with high heat in the dryer for 10-15 minutes first, then you can wash as usual. I used Sharpies on all the t-shirts we got signed when my boys where little and we went to DisneyWorld often. I used fabric markers a couple of years ago with my daughter on the cruise, and it worked the same.

Instead of buying plain white pillowcases, I bought some really nice ones with Disney Princesses on them and others with Finding Nemo on them. They are so sweet and the fabric is light enough in color that the Sharpie pens will show up well. I got them at Sears and they were even on sale for $4.99 today.

Question about fabric:

My DD would really like a flannel pillowcase to be used, but I'm afraid about the sharpie not bleeding/not showing up. Has anyone tried flannel? Pro's, Con's?
