We just got off of the Wonder. They only allowed 2 items per stateroom to be signed- so I left 2 pillowcases .. I took our photo mat to the characters and got my own signatures. It worked out great. Also our drinks (we had ones with alcohol in them) weren't free at the sailaway party You will have a wonderful time!! If you take bottles of wine, remember to take a corkscrew. We forgot ours

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
From the FAQ sticky on the first page:

Boxes Sent the Ship Ahead of Cruise - PLEASE follow these instructions carefully!!!!!! UPDATED AS OF 2/25/2009
" ONE box per stateroom, no exceptions.
" The package must have the guest full name, ship, sailing date, stateroom number or GTY if you have not been assigned a stateroom number.
" The package also must have a packing slip attached to the outside of the box that details the contents of the package. For prescriptions, a copy of the prescription is sufficient. Your list may or may not be read but it must have one. Write packing slip on the outside of the envelope.
" NO FOODS/DRINKS OF ANY KIND, LIQUOR OF ANY KIND, FIREARMS, ETC.. Items that cannot be shipped to the Disney Cruise Line Warehouse and delivered to the ship include: food products (any and all food products including baby food/formula), beverages (liquor, water, etc.), chemicals, and luggage. These items will not be accepted at the warehouse and will be returned. This may cause the dogs to hit on your box and that would be a bad thing." The required size of the cartons you are shipping down have to be about the size of a record storage box 12 inches on a side and should not weigh more than 20 lbs. (This has been asked personally by Dave Adams who is the owner)

Sail away drinks

Speaking of Sail Away...

Just recently off a 4 day Dream cruise. Went off to find my wife a sail away drink (in a souvenir plastic cup no less)... I get accused of drinking hers so i got 2... $22 later...

Anyways literally 10 mins later, they couldnt give them away! 2 for 1! $5! so a hint would be just chill and wait until the middle of the party and get yours 2 for 1 or 1/2 price

That is great info! I thought there might be actually many CM's doing the signatures. Didnt think it was actually the characters.

We usually stuff a bag with candy and snack stuff assuming CM's don't get off the boat a lot.

Yes, they will ask for your room key.

Food from room service is free, however packaged snacks ie. m&m's have a fee.

And for those newbies, there's apparently a charge for smoothies. Although why you would want a smoothie when there's Mickey bars available in exchange for a room service tip...

Edited: I can mangle a sentence - I meant to convey that the info in my message was for newbies, not that only newbies are charged for smoothies. That would really be an ugly secret.

Room service includes Mickey Bars, even though they are not on the Room Service Menu Card. We just got off the Fantasy and ordered Mickey Bars on three different nights. It is customary to tip your room service person.

That would be mean
Anyways so the Mickey bars are free, but of course we need to tip room service. I am right in the fact that the room service waiters are not part of our normal room crew, so we need to tip them at delivery, right?
