    Okay, a PP mentioned the PassPorter's Treasure Hunt for WDW & DCL. Does anyone actually have one of those that they would be willing to make copies of the DCL pages and send to me? It's out of print, naturally, and the prices on eBay and Alibris range from $22.85 - $216.00! :scared1:

    Might have to resort to buying one, but as they are from 2006, I would rather get copies of the DCL pages and wait for a new edition (hopefully!) for our WDW trip in 2012...

    Hoping someone out there can help... :love:

    We were on the Magic in early August and yes they will still sign just about anything. There is a form at GS that you fill out, and check off what you bring, and who you want to sign (Princesses, All-Stars, etc.). We get 2 nice mattes signed and got all our markers back too. Left some Jolly Rancher Gummies as a thank you.

    You can get Mickey bars at anytime from room service and in the dining rooms as desert after lunch and dinner!

    I actually wrote that book with my DH for the Passporter folks. A LOT of the questions would be ut of date now since Disney changes stuff up so much. We use to run hunts every year at WDW and would have to check and double check stuff 5 or 6 times the week before and we still missed changes!

    If you are a couple, just past the Buena Vista Theater are a couple of plush chairs with a small table in a small alcove before you get to the rooms. Get a couple of drinks, sit down, and have a quite moment before going into the theater. :dance3: :woohoo:

    In the adults area, in the evening, they have snacks available. Yes, you can take them into the lounges.

    You can do whatever size mat you want. I enclosed a note as to orientation of the photo and taped the edge with painter's tape so the signatures would show in the frame - you know the frame usually hides a 1/4 or 1/8 of an inch of the mat.

    For the pillowcases - get fabric markers rather than Sharpies - they hold up better after multiple washings.

    This is a great idea! It can be a hassle trying to juggle autograph books and pens, as well as cameras, when it's your child's turn with a character. Not to mention...I always feel like we're holding up the line! Thanks for the tip!

    Love this thread!!! So many great tips-- especially getting the autographs..DD is 4 and as much as she loves the characters from afar, she still (even after her 12 trips to WDW) she has yet to get close to anything but a princess/fairy.. She will be so happy...

    The pastry in the Cove Café is free! I didn't find this out until our 8th DCL cruise.
