    Can you please tell me if on the Disney Wonder cruise you can collect character signatures. My daughter (4 yo) loves to collect them and I would like to know how.

    Gloria, welcome aboard! Oh, character autographs! That is my daughter's favorite thing to do on Disney Cruise Line!

    Each day, you'll receive a Personal Navigator, which is a listing and schedule of all the events going on around the ship. One entire line of the schedule is dedicated to character greetings. From early morning to late at night, you'll find tons of Disney characters ready to meet the guests. 

    Every four-year old little girl needs to be ready for the Princess Gathering which happens at least once, but usually twice, on the sailings. About five of the princesses gather at the same time to meet the little ones. Lines for this get long, so be sure to arrive very early. Snow White, Belle, Ariel, Tiana, Cinderella and Aurora have been some of the princesses attending when we've sailed, though it's always subject to change.

    What I love about meeting characters on the cruise ships, as opposed to the parks is that almost every day the characters will be wearing different outfits. Mickey might have his sailor outfit on day one, formal tuxedo on Formal Night, beach outfit at Castaway Cay, pirate outfit for Pirate Night, and so on. You'll be amazed how many outfits Mickey and his friends have!

    Another idea is to leave an item (pillowcase, photo mat, doll, etc..) at Guest Services on the first night of your cruise. You can let them know if you'd like the Fab 5 to sign it and the princesses, or just one of those groups of characters. They will do so during the cruise and return the item to your stateroom by the last night. It's a fun way to surprise your daughter when she finds that waiting for her the final evening.

    Bring an autograph book and pen (or buy one in the shops onboard), grab your Personal Navigator, and you'll be all set to meet the characters on the Wonder! Your daughter is going to have an amazing time setting sail with Captain Mickey. Let me know if you have any other questions, Gloria!
