autographed plate?

I read on here somewhere that people have had a white dinner plate with Mickey in the middle signed by Mickey and friends on board and it looked amazing and I'd love to have one. I found the plate on Amazon but my question is how do you travel with it? We are flying down and back and I want to be sure it will be safe. I could mail it home after the fact and I guess keep it in my carry-on on the way down?

We did this on the Magic a couple of months ago and I kept it in my carry on for the flight down and then immediately after boarding the ship, I dropped it off at guest services. I did wrap it in bubble wrap for the trip.

I have the same plate as the one in the photo. I ordered mine online through Disney Store and it came wrapped in bubble wrap and in cardboard sleeve. I actually put mine in the suitcase in between my gowns and it survived just fine. I love how it turned out.

Thanks! I think it will be a great souvenir. Is there enough room on it for all of the character signatures or should I stick to Mickey and the gang?

Mine has Mickey and the gang, Stitch and the Princesses and all the signatures fit perfectly.

We were given the choice of Mickey and the Gang or Princesses. You may have other options but someone else reported the same thing on the Magic recently. We took what we could get.

I love the plate. I think this may be our next signature item. What kind of markers did you use for signing? Did you have to do anything special to the plate after getting the signatures?

I used those pens:

They need to set for 3 days at room temperature and then they are even dishwater proof without having to set them in the oven.

Our Plate from the Fantasy

This is the plate we had signed [we love it]
we left it at Guest Services with this note:

Hello Gang,
Angel & I are very excited to be here on the Fantasy….Our 1st cruise on her.
We would love for all of you to sign our plate so that we may a great memento of our trip.
As you are singing the plate, please enjoy these M&M’s…
Thank you again,





here is the link from the Disney Store:
http://www.disneystore.com/gourmet-m...07042/1000349/

We left over 30 sharpies of all colors, and 3 black sharpies that have the regular tip / and fine tip...the "Gang" came up with the idea of using the fine black tip and think it is AWESOME, one of our favorite Disney souvenir's we ever got

Let us know what you think

Robin & Angel "D"

My plate broke in my suitcase. It was wrapped well but not with bubblewrap. Maybe that would have helped me.

We did this and used colourful Sharpies. Turned out brilliantly we love it.

We wrapped ours in loads of bubble wrap and packed it in the middle of the suitcase with clothes around it too. It survived the flight all the way back to Australia :-)

We got Mickey & the gang and the Princesses.
