Disney Cruisers…I have some sad news to share today. The Disney Cruise Line will soon begin phasing out their onboard character autograph request (aka- Mickey Mail). For those of you unfamiliar with the service, this popular and unadvertised perk allowed you to drop off a pillow case, photo matte, autograph book or any other item along with markers to Guest Services for the characters to sign. You could request specific characters sign during the sailing and on the last night of the cruise, your items would be magically returned back to your stateroom during turndown service.
The discontinuation of Mickey Mail will begin on all new Disney Cruise Line sailings embarking after August 7th, 2015:
- Disney Dream- August 7, 2015
- Disney Fantasy- August 8, 2015
- Disney Magic- August 10, 2015
- Disney Wonder- August 10, 2015
A specific reason for the discontinuation has not yet been provided, but, one could guess that this once little known service has become increasing popular due to Guests sharing this tip on blogs, message forums and Pinterest. Hopefully Disney comes up with an alternative plan soon, but, in the meantime, be sure to carry your item(s) you would like autographed onboard in case you bump into your favorite characters!
