    What is the best way to get character autographs on the ship? We have dropped off an item at guest services on past cruises, but I thought that has been stopped. Thanks!

    Ahoy, Cassie!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Are you getting excited for your upcoming Disney Cruise Line adventure? It sounds like you and your pirate crew have previously sailed the high seas with Captain Mickey, so you must be Castaway Club Members, too! My family and I love all the benefits associated with being Castaway Club Members. It's so nice walking into our stateroom on embarkation day to find a "Welcome Back Aboard" gift waiting for us!

    One of my son's favorite activities onboard is getting hugs from his favorite Disney Characters! During our most recent voyage aboard the Disney Wonder, he met Princess Tiana for the first time! Even though Disney Cruise Line no longer invites Guests to drop off items at the Guest Services Desk to be autographed by Disney Characters, there are multiple Character Greetings scheduled every day on and around the ship! I recommend bringing the item you'd like autographed to the different Character meet and greets offered daily. Each day your Personal Navigator newsletter will have a detailed schedule for that day's Character Appearances. If you have anyone sailing with you who loves Disney Princesses, the Princess Gathering is another royal way to receive even more autographs and pictures! Space is limited for this event, so I recommend reserving your complimentary tickets ahead of time online once your advance booking window opens. If tickets happen to be sold out, stop by the Guest Services Desk once onboard to see if there are any more available!

    Cassie, I'm wishing you a cruise filled with hugs and autographs from all your favorite Disney Characters! If you have any other questions while you prepare for your upcoming cruise, please come back and visit us again!
