On the 16th were you able to get John Lasseter's signature? I would definitely gone for that one, but while our presenters were very interesting, I wasn't that compelled to get the autograph.

Did anyone on the 23rd go for the autograph? I do wonder how busy it was.

The book is on Amazon for $31.50 now (retail is $50).
We went to Roger's signing and it wasn't too bad. They handed out numbers as you walked in and then you were able to sit and wait until they called your number (they called you up in groups of 5).

I do wish we had gone back for the Tia's signing though.

We did the MR cruise last April and really enjoyed it. In one way, I preferred the MR cruise because of the additional sea day (2 was not enough for me...I love sea days, LOL). I'm jealous of you too since I would love to do another MR cruise

I heard John Lasseter was at the winery with Nacy signing the wine bottles.

I just caught a glimpse of the Outlook Bar and Cafe on deck 10 the last night of our recent cruise. Would have liked to spend more time up there. Next time.

That would be cool..He was the first presenter on our cruise and disappeared like magic after his presentation (heard he was in Palos though..hope folks left him alone somewhat..wonder how he likes being a celebrity?). Nancy rode with us on the bus to the winery and stayed with us the entire time..(such an amazing excursion!) but John was not there.

They (and their entourage) were at Cadillac Lounge after the first show time. As much as I wanted to run up to the room, grab my Art of Pixar book and ask he sign it, I respected their privacy.

We were on the Sept 23 cruise and when we went to get our picture taken with Capt Fabian on formal night he asked what we were doing in San Fran. I told him we were going on the Lasseter winery excursion and he was very excited to tell us that he had dinner with John on the last cruise and his wine was delicious. It was endearing, very cute.

I did not go to this autograph session either. .....
Ugh - I did not have a note in out room about the signing with Tia. I really wanted to get her to sign the book. She was a great presenter. We then watched Finding Nemo 3d with her and about 10 other people. I contemplated going to the room and grabbing our book but decided to let her enjoy her vacation with her Mom and sister. She was a hoot in the movie though!

Was it included in the note that came with the book? I knew I had read about Roger's signing and we attended that. But then I checked the navigator for Tia's and it wasn't on there so I assumed she wasn't having one. But now that I think about it, I probably read about Roger's signing on the note that was with the book (since the signing was limited to the same people that received the book, right?).

When we received our book there was a letter next to it on the bed with DCL letterhead. About 1/2 way down it said, "In addition, there will be a sepcial autograph session with Pixar Presenter Tia Kratter, just for our Castaway Club members and Disney Visa Card holders. We hope you'll join us for this unique opportunity on:

September 27th 4:00 pm in Studio Sea, Deck 4 Midship. To avoid dissapointment please arrive no later than 4:30pm.

(Please note: we will limit 1 autograph per person, no personalized messages, and only 1 personal photograph per family/guest grouping)."

Tia's was not on the Navagator b/c it was limited to certain people, I believe.

I think there is too much reading to do on the ship ...I noticed a man with a pin that had the logo for the Pixar Cruise (like those hanging in the atrium) and asked about the pins at Mickey Mates on the second sea day and was told they were limited editions w/ only 500 (per cruise or total?) and they were sold out. I looked back to the first navagator and there was a blurb about "limited edition" pins, but I didn't think anything of it really. Oh well! ETA: when I finally had time to go through this thread, I noticed someone posted about the pins from the 9/16 sailing, but I didn't see it until we came home.

The limited edition pins were a total of 500 for all 4 cruises. On the sept. 16 (first pixar cruise) they were allowing essentially 2 pins per stateroom, no idea how many they sold on that cruise.

Wow that is limited! I guess there were a few available on the 9/23 as I saw one, but that seems so limited that it could have sold out on the first cruise!

I agree about too much reading. There was too much information on the Navagator. I didn't know there was a special pin offered the first night. I found out after the fact.

There is so much going on when you arrive the first day. People are still trying to figure things out and unpack. Maybe the special pin should be offered the second day? I really wanted to find a Pixar cruise pin but settled for the Pacific cruise limited pin.

I still find it hard to believe they only had 500 for all four cruises. They had the wristbands at first and that was 2 per stateroom. Then after the wristband time it was 2 per stateroom per day for the last 3 days I think. If it was only 500 for all 4 cruises I'd think they would have limited it more. We had flyers in our rooms separate from the Navigator about the pin release(Sept 16 cruise)
