    Hello. Trying to decide what item to bring for characters to sign. Can you tell me how many characters sign the items and which characters? Also how many items can each stateroom drop off for signing? Is there a size limit on items? Thank you

    Hi Kimberly! I'm happy to see you back with another question! 

    My family absolutely loves to have items signed onboard by the characters. However, standing in line for every single character isn't always possible, so we like that Disney Cruise Line allows guests to drop items off at Guest Services for signatures. Be sure to bring your items on the first day so they have time to retrieve all the signatures before you receive the item again in your stateroom. 

    When you drop off your items (a limit of 2 per stateroom), include the markers you'd like to use and perhaps a box of candy as a thank you to the characters for signing. They really appreciate that! The Cast Member at Guest Services will have you fill out a form with your name and stateroom number. That is where you will check one of two boxes: Mickey and friends or Princesses. You can choose both if you would like them all to sign. When Mickey and friends have signed our items, we've received signatures from Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Donald, Daisy, Chip and Dale. The princesses can also sign. Keep in mind that sometimes not all of them can do so, and other times, you might get an extra special signature on your item as a surprise too! Mr. Smee signed my daughter and son's pillowcases along with Captain Hook once! We weren't expecting that, but they were happy to have that surprise!

    Many of the typical items that guests have signed are pillowcases (just be sure to include fabric markers), photo mats, Vinylmation figures, and a variety of other Disney items. I don't know of a size limit, but if you can bring it in a carry-on bag, I'm willing to bet it would be okay to sign.

    Have fun as you continue to plan, Kimberly! I hope to hear back from you if you have other questions before you set sail!
