You can always size it down to a smaller picture with inlays and framing but it is a good size for room to be signed.

That matte idea is awesome!! Does any one have any packing suggestions for it? Did you put it in a carry-on or in a suit case?

I was wondering the same thing. I would love to do that for a group photo, but how can you transport it without it getting ruined? I did tell DD about the pillowcase and now she can't wait to try it. Keep the tips coming, I know I'll try as many as I can on our 4-day May trip.

I bought a picture mailing envelope (okay, so I don't know the technical name for it ). But I bought it at Walmart or Kmart and of course you could find one at the post office. It has cardboard in the sides and it's padded. Then I just put it in between some flatly (is that a word?) folded clothes in my suitcase. Worked fine.

Great and not so expensive treat!!
You can also do t-shirts, picture frames, canvas totes, hats and just about anything else that is sign able.

Stamped Passports

For those of you that have U.S. passports. You can leave them with Guest Services (you get a receipt that you must have to get it back), and they will have it stamped at each country you visit. On the last night, you go and pick it back up.

1.Ask at guest services (only on the Magic I think) for the self guided art tour booklet.

2.Buy the Passporter Treasure Hunt book. I don't have i tyet and it is mostly for WDW but is supposed to have hunts for the ships as well.

3. Challenge the kids to an ABC photo shoot (they must find somewhere for every letter of the alphabet to have their picture taken--A is for Animator's, etc.). Makes for a great scrapbook when you get home.

4. Tour the hallways to check out everyone's door decorations. Take a pad of sticky notes to leave messages for doors you really like.

Missaulalie, maybe we can do some of these together on the first 14 days

Sounds good to me!

Actually, I want to take these ideas and post them to our Repo thread...

I was told I had to leave it. I didn't question it. I figured they were all done when customs cleared the ship at each port. I kept a copy of my passport with me, when I was off the ship.

Someone here mentioned the Passporter Treasure Hunt book. I bought that and it had lots of fun things to look for on the Magic and also the Wonder. Clues were separated into three categories going from easiest to hardest. I pre-printed about 7-10 clues out onto little treasure maps for the kids in our group. They had a great time looking all over the ship for the answers. When they were done, we had them meet us at a designated location with all the answers on their maps, then we gave out the "pirate booty" we had brought with us...glow sticks, gold coins, pirate toys, candy, etc. It was fun!

Oh speaking of treasure hunts. Don't forget the one on CC. You get your booklet the morning you dock there. It's great fun! For those who have been there before, it gives you something new to do. For those who have never been there before. It's a great way to explore the island. No promises, but you might even find buried treasure!

one of our DIS cruise mates brought a large matte and had us sign it instead of the characters, and put it around a group picture of us. (Our 2005 Mexico gang still gets together for Disneyland trips)

Never knew this one! Are the clues too easy for 3 teens who have been on board mulitple times? I'm always looking for new things for them.
