Do you do this when you first get on board or do you call DCL reservations before?

I did the mats that hold a 5x7 photo, so they go into a 8 x 10 frame. The mats I chose were white and I put an assortment of colored sharpees' for the characters to sign with.

In Walmart's photo frame section, they have a poster frame rack, and as part of it, a selection of mats. They have a mat that is specifically made for signatures, usually for wedding wishes. I believe it is 15x18 or so, and the cutout is 8x10. They only carry it in white and it was in the $8.00-range.

Hope that helps.

cup holders

Haven't actually gone on my disney cruise yet (June 2011-Alaska) but I read on another website that instead of paying for sodas through room service or at bars when you want a soda and it's not a mealtime you could go to the soda fountain thing for free on Deck 9 anytime. Suggestions included bringing cups with lids and handles, or bringing clean empty plastic soda bottles with caps, or bringing a cupholder from a fast food place so you can carry enough drinks for your family while walking to a show, your room, or wherever you want to enjoy your drinks. I got a collapsable drink holder for four at Burger King that I plan to put in my suitcase. Hope that helps.

Great idea, Thanks! It is always a struggle to try and carry more than 2 drinks back up to your room.

Do they not have cups for you to use there on Deck 9? Do I need to bring my own? Or are they just not the best cups so people bring their own? I wonder if I have space for cups!!! Suitcases are filled for our trip in less than 2 weeks.

They do have cups, but they are small. We like our large insulated cups which can hold hot or cold beverages. Less trips to 9 aft that way. Guess you could say it's also the "green" option (less trash)

There are cups at the drink station, but they are small. People will bring everything from a travel type mug to the infamous Bubba Keg. As for having room to pack something more into your bags.....you can actually stuff a lot into a Bubba Keg so it really isn't taking up too much space! Bubba Kegs keep beverages hot or cold, come in several sizes and colors and are great conversation starters. lol I am a proud Bubba Keg carrier!!!! You can purchase your own Bubba Keg at Target and similar stores.

You can bring your own larger capacity cups to fill on deck 9, however they do require that you use the smaller DCL disposable cups to actually get the beverage from the machine and then pour it into your own cup. This may take several fills/pours, but it eliminates the chance of germs from your personal cup being transferred to the spout on the machine- so it's a logical policy.

Photo Mats

I'm really interested in handing over a photo mat or 2 for signatures. How many signatures do you tend to get on one that would hold the photo sizes you can buy at Shutters on board Magic. Also I would love to see a finished article is anyone has one.

I'm thinking of buying the CD of all photos and maybe 2/3 photos on top and it would be great if the signatures could frame them.

Thanks in advance if anyone is able to share photos.
