February 28, 2013 Dream - Fish Extender

Welcome to the the Fish Extender Exchange Group for the February 28, 2013 Disney Dream Cruise!

This FE is closed as of February 2, 2013. Looking forward to all who are participating!!!

For those who are new to this fun cruise experience, the Fish Extender itself is a pocket panel you hang from the fish shaped hook outside your stateroom. These can be homemade or you can purchase them on sites like Etsy, you can also find some pictures on Google or DIS forums. Families that join the FE group hang the Fish Extender outside their cabin and then exchange little gifts with others participating in the group by putting little gifts in each others extenders.

Here is a thread with some basic info about it:
http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=378

It's a ton of fun, not just for kids, and you can either give one gift to each cabin, or a gift to each person in the cabin. You can give gifts a few times throughout the cruise or just once. No real set rules, just exchange and have fun! Gifts can be homemade or storebought. That's part of the fun . . . the variety of gifts that everyone brings!

Our group will close Friday, February 1st. This allows people time to order, make, assemble, personalize, etc their gifts. Thank you!!

Guidelines for our fish extender:
1. Each cabin is to provide AT LEAST one gift to each cabin participating in the fish extender. You can provide a gift to each person within that cabin, just the kids, or one gift for the whole cabin...that is up to you. Of course, you are welcome to give more than one gift...but the minimum is one.
2. All gifts are to be delivered between the cruise leaving port on Thursday, February 28th until 4 PM on Saturday, March 2nd. This gives people time to still be able to pack their bags on March 2nd before we leave the ship the morning of March 3rd.
3.Please include a tag with your DISboards user name on the gift. This way everyone knows who the gift is from.

Here is a list of IDEAS of what you might want to bring for the FE on the cruise...to add to your packing list if you'd like:
1. The FE gifts that you are making/preparing -- total number will be announced after our February 1st sign up deadline.
2. An FE pocket/hanger to hang outside your cabin. You can find them on eBay by searching "Fish Extenders" or you can make one or search on line other places.
3. A zip tie to help attach your FE HANGER. Some people have commented theirs have sadly walked away...but if you attach it with a zip tie...then it is not as likely to walk away.
4. Scissors to cut the zip tie when you're packing...LOL! Don't want to leave it for someone else.
5. On the forum, some people recommend bringing thank you notes so you can write a quick note to the person who gave you a gift.

Hello there! This will be our first Disney Cruise and will be traveling with our 2-1/2 year old daughter!

Do you end up exchanging with all cabins or just one? Trying to wrap my head around the volume of goodies to get before committing. If all, what's the people/cabin count up to so far?

You do exchange with all the cabins. If you want to give a gift to every person in each cabin, you can. If you prefer to give a one gift to each family, that is fine as well. When I did it on my last cruise, we had personalized note pads made for each cabin. So we did one gift per cabin. The deadline to register is still 6 days away but as of now, we have 9 cabins participating. Let us know. We'd love to have you if you want to participate.

I'm getting excited ... it's so close! Kathy - have fun on your cruise this Thursday! :

Just a request for all - please PM me or post the favorite character or movie for each person in your stateroom (participating in the FE). I've heard from a few, but not all. It'll make it easier for me to make your gifts Thanks!

Good morning all,


Its going to be a HOT day in Florida today. Some areas will be 88 to 90 which means we may break a few records, but then tomorrow, the day I cruise its suppose to rain and be 65

I dont mind the cooler temperatures but I dont want it to rain and ruin our Sailaway party.

So please send some Pixie dust my way for tomorrow that the rain will hold off until we get out of the channel at least.

Catch you later, I need to pack.

Kathy
