We tend to go to Disneyworld a lot and I have found that I enjoy not having the autograph books (because you get much better pictures without trying to juggle autograph books). Would be able to get 6 items signed between the two rooms?
It doesn't hurt to ask. I would make sure you get to guest services on your first day. Be sure to include your own fabric markers and some candy for the team signing all your stuff.

Didn't get a chance to read all the posts. I bought a pillow case from Etsy, that I LOVE, what brand fabric markers do you suggest?

Different itineraries have the characters dressed in unique costumes, i.e. the NYC to Canada cruises had Minnie dressed as the Statue of Liberty and Mickey dressed in yellow slicker/fishing gear. The characters are only available for pictures in these costumes on certain days.

You might want to bring grid paper for the character drawing class.

I bought the Crayola fabric markers from JoAnn's using a coupon. I believe they have them at Michael's also.

Lightbulb Immersion blender

Took me all of the weekend to go through the Hundreds of posts ! Thanks for sharing your tips. We will be sailing out of Galveston on the Disney Magic, Dec 8th 2012, (first cruise) and will carry our immersion blender for in-cabin use ! With an abundant supply of soft serve ice cream, milk, fruits etc, the possibilities are endless !!!

We always bring a cooler (collapsable style) because their "ice box" refrigerators are worthless. And---
Considering they don't have a casino, alcohol purchases are a major money maker for them, they could certainly choose to inforce their rules, but to our benefit, they don't!
This policy was one of the reasons (many) that we ultimately went with DCL. My understanding was that it had to be in a specific size carry on and you just couldn't bring the bottles out of your room.

What sort of things do you ship? I was going to use the travel lite baby delivery service. Does that count as one of my boxes?

When you share it, you have the option to let others edit it or for it to be just like it is, "read only"....

We have numerous cruise docs shared so that others can edit them - like a packing list we've shared among our Facebook Group, and also a "things to do before you leave" list

Hope that helps and makes sense......

Okay... Clueless me. How do I access those "shared" docs? They sound useful!!

Smoothies come at a price. Not sure they will blend and serve a-la-carte for free...
