Maybe a little insight on the topic of signatures (or in Disney speak, autographs!)...


Disney Character Performers and Character managers are the only ones granted autograph signing approval for the reasons Bear3412 gave above. Guest Services, Concierge, etc. are not allowed to be signing autographs, only those specific members of the Entertainment team.

Note that mainstage performers do not have autograph signing approval. So even if you see Mulan performing in a show... you will not be able to get her autograph.

Autograph signing is often done in large batches and is at least a scheduled hour for whichever Cast Member is doing them that day.
So if for example a CM was "friends with" Cinderella, and Cinderella was not making any appearances on that day, if she was not schedled to help greet another character she might be scheduled on what is called "Mickey Mail". In this case, a friend of Cinderella does not necessarily have to be friends with Mickey or friends with Goofy in order for their autographs to be signed.

(hopefully you can understand this while I try to answer using Disney lingo and not killing the magic! )

Thanks. I was just about to copy & paste my post on your thread, for you to expand on.

You are awesome. Thanks for your time. Your responses eliminate so much speculation.

I saw some teens on a hunt one evening but it was organized out of the teen club. They had a whole list of photos and had to identify where they were. It looked really fun actually.

Try drying autographed items before washing. It sets the Sharpie/marker ink.

Each room is allowed a maximum of two items to be signed. Unless there are 3 kids in the room, then they will do 3.

On our 1st cruise we did the pillowcase. It came out nicely, but we tucked it away. On our 2nd cruise, we did the photo mat (matte was 11 x 14). We asked for as many sigs as possible. They grouped them nicely. We provided multiple colored sharpies. We put a pic and into the frame. Look at it everyday! Packed it by putting it with the cardboard backing, sharpies in a ziploc bag, and placed everything in a clear bag. Placed in outside zip pocket of the large suitcase.

Maybe I'm a little slow, but if I want something signed, like a pillowcase I take that to guest relations and I provide the sharpie markers for them to sign it with? I don't mind providing markers I just want to make sure I'm understanding correctly. Thanks!

We have never given pens in with the cases. However, we have specified (when asked) if we wanted color or black - and they came back perfectly. I believe they have pens that they use on every case they are signing at the time. Every pillow case comes back with the same signatures in the same colors in the same places when they are done together.

One more thing I didn't see posted... If someone offers you a drink, it's free! I didn't know that one until after the Sail Away party. The drinks are complementary at the Sail Away party and at the Captain's reception.
We got charged on our first cruise for a drink at the sail away party. Not quite free.

I heard an awful rumor somewhere that they may have stopped signing items that guests bring to guest services.
Please tell me this is just a rumor!

We brought ours only because we didn't know that they would provide them . After reading some other posts, I probably wouldn't bring my own in the future.

The drinks are not free at the sail away party just the Captian's gala in the lobby on formal night.
