    My family and I are taking our first Disney Cruise this June. My daughter would like to know what shopping is available on board. Specifically, she would like to know if autograph books (for character meetings)are available as they are in Disney World.

    Welcome aboard, James! Your first sailing with Disney Cruise Line will be so magical for your whole family! I'm excited for you to experience all of the exciting events and activities that await you with Captain Mickey on the high seas!

    I'm guessing since you're sailing on June 21 that you'll be heading out on the Fantasy. That is a beautiful ship with lots of new technology to explore. In addition to all the fun the Cast Members have planned to keep you busy, there are some fun shopping spots onboard. Gift shops are open when the ship is at sea, as due to customs regulations, they cannot have the shops open while in port. There will be many hours each day and night when you can shop in the gift stores. On the Disney Fantasy and Dream, you'll find autograph books available at Mickey's Mainsail (if you're on the Magic or Wonder, you'll find them at Mickey's Mates) . They usually have a few different styles from which to choose, so I'm sure your daughter will find one that she loves. Fun Disney pens are available too if you forget to bring your own from home.

    You might be interested to know that if you bring an item (say a pillowcase, Vinylmation, or photo mat) to be signed by the characters, you are welcome to drop that off at Guest Services on your first day of the sailing. You can leave colored markers to match your decor too. They will have it signed by Mickey and his gang or the princesses, or both, and it will be delivered back to your stateroom before the final night of your cruise. What a great surprise to find as your daughter walks into her stateroom that last day! But, she'll definitely want her own autograph book too as there are lots of meet n' greet opportunities with characters throughout the cruise!

    Have fun planning, James and please let me know if I can answer another question before you set sail this summer!
