As much as I hate going to Wally World this is one reason to make the trip - thanks for the tip!

This thread is great. We are going on our first Disney Cruise in Feb. 08 and I am making note of all of these (especially those pillow cases).

Oh, and I thought Wally World was the destination for Chevy Chase in Vacation?

Wally World is also a nickname for WalMart

Thanks for all the terrific tips and secrets here

Someone ( and I'm sorry that I don't remember their name) did something a little different with character autographs. They bought the Vinylmation Mickeys (Create your own) and had them signed at Guest Services. They were really cool, but a more expensive thing to do. There is a black Mickey and they were going to have it signed in metallic marker. Just something a little different. And I checked online, and they can be order from WDW merchandise website.

Tell me more!!!!!!! Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We actually bought 3 CHEAP photo frames at the dollar store all white and put them in a baggie and they do actualframes too, my daughter gave them a autograph book too and it all came back markers and all the ngiht before we left, SOOOOOOO much easier than trying to get all the signatures!! LOVED IT

Here are a few:

-Bring some clothespins. They are great for hanging up swimsuits, etc.
-Bring some Lysol or other "fragrant spray" for the bathroom.
-Bring an inexpensive hanging shoe rack...those pockets are great for tanning oil, cameras, etc. Keeps it organized and easy to find.
-If you plan on doing laundry, I read a great tip on another thread... bring a couple of pop-up laundry hampers to separate your clothes ahead of time. We'd been bringing one bag, but I love the idea of going ahead and separating darks/whites/colors.

I agree with an earlier poster....don't try to do it all. Just have fun and enjoy it!!

I didn't know about this one We've been on Bahamas, Eastern and Western Caribbean which I would have done. I guess I'll have to start it now.

I've been told that this isn't happening. You can leave them but they probably won't get stamped. It's not up to DCL, it's at the whim of the port you're in.

Someone told me that they quit doing the pillow cases. Has anyone tried this lately?

When your kid goes to Goofy's Pajama party, they will get a pillowcases to color during the party and they get to take it home. DD loves hers.

Okay, a PP mentioned the PassPorter's Treasure Hunt for WDW & DCL. Does anyone actually have one of those that they would be willing to make copies of the DCL pages and send to me? It's out of print, naturally, and the prices on eBay and Alibris range from $22.85 - $216.00!

Might have to resort to buying one, but as they are from 2006, I would rather get copies of the DCL pages and wait for a new edition (hopefully!) for our WDW trip in 2012...

Hoping someone out there can help...

We were on the Magic in early August and yes they will still sign just about anything. There is a form at GS that you fill out, and check off what you bring, and who you want to sign (Princesses, All-Stars, etc.). We get 2 nice mattes signed and got all our markers back too. Left some Jolly Rancher Gummies as a thank you.

I actually wrote that book with my DH for the Passporter folks. A LOT of the questions would be ut of date now since Disney changes stuff up so much. We use to run hunts every year at WDW and would have to check and double check stuff 5 or 6 times the week before and we still missed changes!

If you are a couple, just past the Buena Vista Theater are a couple of plush chairs with a small table in a small alcove before you get to the rooms. Get a couple of drinks, sit down, and have a quite moment before going into the theater.

In the adults area, in the evening, they have snacks available. Yes, you can take them into the lounges.
