Extra Secret Magic on Disney Cruise Line

Cruise Series

My very favorite thing about traveling with Disney is the extra magic and unpublished surprises that are out there. I am sure there are so many little secrets that have yet to be discovered. Disney Cruise Line is no different from Disney parks in that they have created some of their own special magic too.

I recently planned our first cruise together as a family. While I have done cruises previously for work I have yet to do it with my kids so I wanted to do as much research as I could to make the trip extra special. One of the first tips I came across was so simple yet it ended up being a family favorite and it was SUPER inexpensive.

Before you sail purchase a set of Sharpie markers and a pillowcase. Pack the markers and pillowcases into a zip-lock bag.  Then, as soon as you board the ship head on over to Guest Services and drop off your items. They will have you fill out a short form with your name and stateroom number. They will ask you if you want Mickey and friends or Princesses signatures. They will take your items and they will magically appear in your stateroom autographed the last night of your cruise. I love this tip because for about $11 I got two priceless souvenirs that my kids are still using.

My boys sleep with their pillowcases every single night and not a night goes by where they don’t mention our awesome vacation when they go to sleep.

*I will caution you that I was told they can only do two items per stateroom. I do have three children but my 16 year old did not want to partake so we did not even try to ask for another one.

Some other items to consider:

  • Large initial letter in white from a hobby store
  • White picture frame mat
  • T-shirt
  • Baseball Cap
  • Tote bag

What Our Clients Say

My grandson Oscar (5), son Johnathan, sister Kim and I went to Disney World for a week.  When I first had the thought to go I thought, where do I begin?  I put a shout out on FaceBook and discovered that Beth was a guru.  All I had to give her was my dates and we started from there.  She gave me options for resorts, told me about the dining plan, park hopper, fast passes and resorts to stay in.  She walked me through every step of the way.  I know that our vacation would not have been half as fun or organized if not for Beth.  I can’t say enough good things about her.  I would ask a silly question, she would reply and not make me feel like it was silly.  There is so much to Disney that I know it would have been a nightmare without her.  She is always, friendly and helpful.  She never tried to sway my opinion one way or another and let me make the decisions.  I would definitely have been lost without her.  I recommend her to everyone who says they want to go to Disney World.  Thank you Beth for the vacation of a lifetime.
