    If I take a photo mat to guest services will the characters sign it?

    Hi Norma,

    Welcome aboard planDisney! I’m so glad that you are planning for one of the many ways you can capture magical memories during your Disney Cruise Line vacation. Character meet and greets were among my family’s favorite moments of our Disney vacations, and we still enjoy them! I love how Disney Cruise Line offers many opportunities to interact with our favorite Characters. 

    Norma, at this time, autographs and photographs are available during your Character meet-and-greet. Unfortunately, the drop-off of items is currently unavailable, but hopefully meeting the characters and having them sign items during the meet-and-greet will be a magical alternative. Most Characters (subject to availability and in keeping with their special stories) can sign special items you bring on board while you are present. Remember to bring a marker or pen necessary for the item you wish to be signed. 

    I encourage you to check the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app when you board for times and locations. Some Character meet-and-greets require an advanced reservation, which can be booked online at Book / Manage Cruise Activities or at the Guest Services desk once onboard. 

    Here’s a quick tip for making sure you don’t miss the activities you have your heart set on! For many activities in the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app, you can “like” the event. Then, you will receive a notification about 15 minutes before the event is scheduled to begin to remind you!

    You will have a magical time on your cruise, Norma! If you have other questions or need more tips for making the most of your vacation, please sail by and see us again.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
