This is exactly what we did. It also got me to frame the lithograph from AKL and Aulani and the 3 of them are now hanging in our stairway. I love it!

We also have photo mats from previous cruises. One has a family photo from pirate night and is hanging above our mantel. We had the characters sign in black and red and it looks fabulous!

I think that because they are done when the CMs have extra time, its easier for Guest Services to return them all at once, usually on the last night of your cruise. However, on a 14 night, I'm not sure how that would work. I would ask at Guest Services when they might be finished, or just wait until the end. We actually forgot about ours on our 7 night Magic cruise, and it was a great surprise delivered on the last night! Our girls loved their pillowcases, but they don't use them, they hung them up!
I think I will do a totebag for my next cruise!
Jealous of your 14 nights!

For those of you who have done a photo mat or pillow case, how many signatures did you get, ballpark? I'm bringing on board "goodies" for the CMs who sign it and I want to make sure I've got enough. Thanks!!

I totally forgot too and I'm so glad it was just delivered to my room. On the last night I happened to go back to the room after the show but before dinner, and my daughter wasn't with me. I put the pillowcase on her pillow, and when she came back to the room she had a huge smile on her face. "Look what they GAVE us!"

I think I would have forgotten to pick it up (which is probably why they bring it to people instead of having us all wait at guest services!)

You may get 15-20 signatures or only 5. Those 5 may also be by the same person! The CM's are very talented and can sign as more than 1 person.

I gave a pack of chapsticks to the desk with my request and I think there were 10 in there. All the treats and things get pooled. Sometimes they use them at parties for the CM. I don't think the CM's are signing, eating a snickers, signing, eating a milky way, signing, eating a bag of gummy bears-they'd start to fill out those costumes!

Thanks!
here is one of our totes signed.

2012-08-19 11.25.57 by peachygreen2010, on Flickr

It was delievered on day 3 of our 5 night cruise to our cabin. The last time it was delivered on day 7 of our 7 night cruise though so who knows. The older girls got extra signatures on theirs (pirate night like captain hook and smee) and others. (by extras they brought them with them to some meet and greets later in the cruise)

We've done pillow cases, photo mats, and on our first cruise aprons.

Okay, I've never really been interested in doing this before, but that tote is really cute!! Did you make them or buy them? Thanks so much!

On our 14 night cruise I think it was delivered day 3 or 4.

You probably can't pick them up because they may be no where near guest services.

My daughter's tote bag. I got it from Etsy, brought some Disney PJs and a stuffed Minnie to put it in and put it on her bed as a gift from Mickey.
