With an AP discount, its only $36.

You don't want to know what I dropped on vinyl this past weekend.

The only other size is 3". I think they retail for $9.95 for the solid colors. Doubtful you could get more than 1 or 2 autographs on a 3".

My kids love their pillow cases.

In June I took 2 packs for character signing and had no problem. Each pack was a 1 gallon ziplock bag with many sharpie markers in lots of colors and 1 white pillow case. At guest services, the person fills out a small form with your room number and checks a box as to the type of signatures you want.

- Fab 5
- Princess only
- All characters

It was delivered back to our room the last day of the cruise. Super cute!

So right. I will have to come up with something else.
Or, just realize that I really do not want/need something with Disney character signatures cluttering up my apartment or office.

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

Disney items are not clutter ... They are valued collectibles

I am trying to collect valued experiences that will not later turn into clutter.
I have lived long enough to know that "collectibles" seldom have value other than personal pleasure. And dusting collectibles in not my pleasure.
My opinion only, of course!

A couple of years ago a couple of friends (two adults) of mine went to WDW and on a Disney cruise.

They had the hem of two pillow cases embroidered with my neices names. Had them signed on the cruise and gave them to the girls for Christmas. The Girls LOVED them.

Just an idea!

This picture is not mine. I copied it off a thread on the Cruise Line board discussing what you can get signed on a cruise. I want to get one done in December.

I did this last cruise for my nieces and it worked out really well.

Just drop off your item and sharpies in a ziploc bag (with your cabin # and name on the baggie) at the Guest Services counter. The CM told me who signs depends who is "on board" for the cruise. The Fab 5 and some Princesses are always on board. You can specify who you want to sign. Mr. Smee was also on the ship for that cruise.

Have fun with it!

cheers,

I think this is an awesome thing DCL does that really makes them "Disney". I understand it is based on CM's doing it in their spare time, and I can imagine they get pretty busy especially on a 4 day cruise. I was wondering if we need to leave a tip inside the baggie??

I've heard they can't accept a cash tip but many, including myself, have added a bag of candy, like Hershey Mini's as a thank you..

Confirmation!

Our very own Lori and Rick (TheBeadPirate) have selflessly gone and taken a trip on the Wonder to check it out and make sure everything is up to snuff. While on board, they asked about having Vinylmations autographed.

The cast members at guest services told them "No Problem".
