I love this idea. First I've heard it. Will definitely look into for my almost 6 yr old. Thanks.

2. When stopping at another country ask someone from GS if they can get your passports stamped. You should take a copy with you just in case you are getting off the ship so that you may return.
3. Mickey ice cream bars can be ordered from room service or you may have them for dessert.
4. When getting things signed through GS you are given the choice of what characters to sign ie: princesses, all, princeses, etc. I did the 11x14 mat with all in colored sharpies and it turned out great. We framed our formal night pic with the mat.
5. On formal night if you would like to eat in your room you can request your dinner from RS and they will bring whatever is on the menu in your resturant.
6. You can ask for a tour of the wheel house.
I hope this help some out there if I can think of anymore I will.
Appreciate these tips. My boys would love the ice cream bars... And so would this momma.

If you're not planning on getting an item signed during the cruise, remember that a signed item may be a nice thank you gift for someone who isn't on the cruise, like a young neighbor picking mail up from your house while you're gone.
I had a pillow case signed during my last cruise, and gave it to a co-worker who's guardian of her 7 year old grandchild. 18 months later, she's told me that on laundry day she has to be sure to have that pillowcase back on her grandchild's bed before bedtime.

On our last cruise I made did a activity/ autograph book. She carried it with her all the time and every friend she made, cm from the children's areas, characters, house keeping , etc she had them sign it and put where they was from. Then when we got back home we took the map pages of her activity book and marked each spot someone was from so she could see how far each traveled to do the cruise. Some of the kids even wrote their addresses so they could be penpals after the cruise

No I an not just like doing unique ideas that will allow learning and playing to be fun for all. Plus it allows family time spent together in making it

You can't miss my DH. He's a big burly USMC redneck w/ a fanny pack and acting like a kid who can't wait for the next ride at WDW.

Pillowcase?

Has anyone cruised recently on the Fantasy with kids? Do they still get pillowcases if they attend the slumber party at the Oceaneer's club?

We did last year, October. Listed in the navigators as "plutos pajamas party". That's what we requested the characters sign. Turned out great.
