1. Pillow cases with signatures
2. Ordering cookies and milk from room service before bed.

What else????
How do u order the cookies?

The cookies are on the room service menu for no charge. But don't set your expectations too high. They are dry, overcooked, and flavorless. They don't even look appetizing. The oatmeal seemed like store bought, but were a bit more palatable.

what is the hidden Mickey challenge?

There are hidden mickey images that the imagineers have built into all sorts of stuff on the ship. You can go around the boat and find them all. Here's a site with a bunch of examples: http://www.hiddenmickeyguy.com/catal...disney-fantasy

I've never had them, but heard the opposite.

Another tip, you can make milkshakes with the soft serve icecream and a little milk, just bring one of those travel mugs and shake it real good.
what time does pin trading start at night and where do we go to trade?

It will be posted in the navigator. It is usually in the atrium on the classics.

Yes. Every night. We carefully move ours and save them. By the end of the week, we have a little towel zoo.

Do you mean do the room stewards leave towel creatures? Yes, they do. It's the first thing we take a picture of when we get into our stateroom.

Wow! I never thought about trying to save them. Our room attendant kept using our blanket to make creatures...obviously a lot larger than towel animals. I think we would run out of room to store them by the end of 7 days.

Well take it from someone who has, it is probably the first time in my life that I didn't finish a chocolate chip cookie. I'm not the only one either. I saw many partially eaten cookies left in the halls with the room service plates. Every one I saw on the fantasy was noticeably overbaked too. Maybe they have been better on other ships or at different times? But not much better than cardboard last month. I promise I'm not that picky either.

I just did this!!!! We were in a 1 bedroom suite, so that helped to make room! Only the monkey was gone at the end of the week when I took a video of my zoo!
