Does it have to be pillowcases?

I'm reading all about the pillowcases and getting them autographed through Guest Relations, but the idea isn't appealing to me. My kids would probably prefer to have a baseball cap autographed, or a canvas totebag or something. Does it have to be a pillowcase or a matted frame?

And yes, I realize this is a complimentary service performed as a courtesy, and I should be grateful they do anything at all and yes, I will leave treats/candies in the bag for the characters, and I know I may have to go to Guest Relations to pick it up

You can leave anything. Many do tote bags.

You don't pick it up. It is delivered to your room on the last night.

Not at all!

Plates, mugs, t-shirts, pictures, frames, plushes etc!

If they can sign it, they will (PG stuff though!)
Make sure the pens are appropriate to the item thou, fabric pens for fabric.....

The tote bag is a great idea! I was just wondering what to take for autographs, as we are 2 adults. I wanted to have something "useful" as a souvenir. Thanks for sharing!

We just got back this weekend, and on a whim right before packing i got 2 plain white sweatshirts from walmart for $6 each.

The characters signed them and DD loved wearing hers back to school.

In March of 2012, DVC had a promotion where you watch a DVC video of the Fantasy online and you received a lithograph of Mickey and Minnie with the statue in the lobby of the Fantasy. We did it and had it signed on our cruise in Sept 2012. It turned out fantastic and we had it framed

We did the photo mat. I taped off the area that the frame would cover so the entire signatures are visible.

We did the photo mat too. What I did was at the bottom I stenciled in the FANTASY logo and added captain Mickey stickers. LOVE it! It is by far my favorite souvenir of our trip!

Instead of white t-shirts, I bought black and navy blue ones and used metallic gold and silver fabric markers for signing. The t-shirts look really nice. DD and I made special requests to have our favourite characters sign in the centre of the t-shirts.

Have fun planning!

What kind of tote bags?

Does anyone have a picture of their signed tote?
Thanks!

We had large white Vinylmations signed on our August cruise and they were returned to us *covered* with signatures! They are adorable!
