These kids are sitting up at night signing everyones things and its nice to give them something in return.

As someone suggested, get a box of different color sharpies and they will sign them in the characters colors. Nice additional touch.
Always take care of the CM's, they deserve it!!

Please tell me this is just a rumor!
We went on the Dream NYE cruise - 12/29/13 - 1/2/14 and left a Mickey white plate with sharpies. Received back with sharpies on last evening and all looked great!

Does anyone know if there is a size limit? I wanted to have the matte of a frame signed. It's not small, although it's the same size as one we carried around WDW in a backpack, so it's not super huge.

We had a photo mat signed that holds an 11 x 14 photo. I think your photo mat will be fine.

I want to bring a matte frame to have signed but I'm not sure how to get it on the plane. I would like to get an 8x10 but afraid to pack it in my luggage just in case it gets smashed. Any suggestion?

I put my mat in between two bigger pieces of sturdy cardboard. I then packed in the middle of my clothes in a suitcase. It was fine for us.

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.
I was thinking about bringing one photo mat and two pillowcases, it is my hubby's 30th surprise trip to go on Dream in June. So I wanted a frame to get a birthday picture of him, then two pillowcases (one for each of us), would that be an issue?

Also the free drinks and stuff, I am so lost. I thought the cruise was all inclusive. What do you pay for? We don't drink alcohol, so I don't have to worry about this. But I am lost, I thought we didn't pay for any food or drinks, can someone clarify what we pay for so I am not caught off guard. Help!

All food is included, except for the adult dining (Remy/Palo). Beverages at meals (except for alcoholic) included also included 24/7 from the drink station. Alcoholic drinks/specialty coffee all have a cost. Sodas ordered from room service, in the bars/lounges, and from poolside servers have a cost.

Thanks Ok, so food is free everywhere? Just get my own drinks before I head to room to get room service. I plan on bring our refillable mugs from Disney since I was told cups at drink station are tiny.

Along with alcohol, I brought a 12-pack of mini pop cans in my carry on for the room. Saved a few trips to the deck's fountain pop machine.
Before a show (or anytime) you can fill a Bubba Keg with pop and ice cream = floats!

so clever, I may have to bring two sets of cups, one for floats and one for soda. Is there a 24/7 icecream area too? I am so excited, It is getting harder and harder to keep this whole surprise a surprise.

Can you mail the drinks to ship? We will be on Disney property first, so wouldn't want to spend disney prices for 12 pack for cruise

On our last DC, the 12 pack of mini pop I bought at a grocery store in Miami beforehand. I think we also brought a 12 of beer, rum in a plastic bottle, a box of wine (lol) and some mini bottles of water to take on excursions. Remember DCL lets you bring what can fit in your carry-on. There's no weight limit like a flight.

Look into Bubba Keg mugs. They are the best thing on the planet on cruises and caribbean vacations.
