Hi

I made apron and two pillowcases and bring it with me to hand it in guest services and turn out lovely!

This times, I am thinking to buy new pillowcases and take it to shop for embroidery - sewing on Mickey Mouse, names and dates.

Frame with photo - bring it and they will sign it well.

Hi

Unfortunately they took our passports away because we are UK so this year in July we will be sailing to Europe and think this time we keep our passports and wonder if they do the stamped at each country??

Just wonder.

A few more I thought of last night and from my husband:

1. Take an autograph book to have all the CMs you enjoy sign. We haven't done this yet, but we have occasional CM signatures in the regular books and find ourselves reading those (nearly always include a note) over frequently. Bonus: you'll have the correct spellings of all the CMs you want to mention by name in evaluations and/or letters.

2. Listening stations in sessions (grab a drink and snack and relax to good music)

3. Borrow a board game from Diversions and play with your friends (Diversions also has chips and salsa out most afternoons--like my chip fix!).

4.Exercise in the workout room at least once--just for the great view of the bridge.

5. Ask for the Hidden Mickey Challenge at Guest Services.

6. Pick a word (thank you or hello is nice though my kids tend to go for ice cream) to learn and see how many languages you can learn it in.

Leave a wake-up call. It's Mickey Mouse who will call you. When you answer, hit the speaker phone button so your entire cabin can hear. My kids thought this was hysterical. Especially when Mickey called us one morning 11 times!!

No more view of the bridge from the gym. They put a floor over the bridge and now there are treadmills and ellipitical machines, but it does have a nice view of the bow of the Magic and the ocean.

In cat. 12, 11 & 10 rooms turn the tv to the basketball court view so that it lights up the room in the morning.

pillow case info

The more sharpies you put in, the prettier it will be. I gave them about 7 or 8 from a big pack with colors like aqua, orange, etc. They will even personalize it with your child's name if you request it. (Not that it's a big deal, but I didn't get the pens back)

This is who signed:
Mickey, Minnie,, Donald, Goofy, Pluto, Genie, Aladdin, Chip/Dale,Max,Lilo/Stitch,Pinocchio,Snow White, Cinderella, Fairy godmother, Dopey, Mulan, Pochahontas, Wendy Darling, belle, Princess Aurora, Captain Hook, Smee, Peter Pan, Terk, Mad Hatter, Queen of Hearts, Alice, White Rabbit
Suzy and Perla

So you see, you get a lot more characters than you actually see on the ship. I imagine the White Rabbit, et al are behind the scenes doing laundry or something

By the way, I haven't washed the pillowcases yet. Has anyone done so. Should I rinse it in something special to set the ink? I was worried about it running.

Any insights on who Suzy and Perla are? Perhaps the guest services cast members who facilitate this

Suzy and Perla are Cinderella's mice friends!

Castaway cay...baby joggers/wagons free

I never saw this written anywhere, but we found a little "parking lot" of free baby joggers and red wagons to use on Castaway Cay. First come first serve and very handy moving a family over sand.

Where did you find the "parking lot" of these? I need this for my niece and nephew in September.

My fabric marker directions said to iron it inside out before I washed it. I did not do it and the color stayed great. I did wash the pillowcases before I took them though.

This might be something you have to ask to be done. I just assumed they stamped forgien passports automaticly. Just go to guest services and ask. It can't hurt, and its fun to have the stamps there. Just remember you have to leave it with them, so have a photo copy of your passport to keep with you.
