Post Poll: Magic 5/10/13 Galveston FE hybrid list

In an effort to help us get organized as we revamp our FE list, I am trying to set up this poll to link to our Meet group. For all 34 staterooms on the current FE list, I would like to know if you would like to exchange with the entire group or a little more than half of that (18+), depending on how many exchange with every participant. Both options will be available!

Hi all! We would like to give to all the staterooms. We were also one of the rooms that was "FE kids only". May I suggest that we make a schedule of the days onboard so that we can have an assigned day to give. This way there is a FE for every day? I would be willing to create that schedule to help you out Becca. Thank you for all your hard work!

Assigned Day

I do like the assigned day idea. Perhaps this would keep us from getting a ton of stuff one day and nada the next? I imagine we won't expect anything the WDW Park day since we will all be pooped? LOL

Thank you Becca for pulling all of this together. And thank you KSLATL for offering to do a schedule.

I think I am better understanding how the FE works. Looks like we just give one time while on the cruise?

It's getting close - whoohooo!!

Hi KSLATL! That seems like a great idea! I think that it would be good to make it a voluntary suggestion. I put a column with numbers 1-7... if it's not what you had in mind, I can just delete that column and you can take a stab at it.
Thanks!

My grandson and I would like to be included if it isn't too late.

Hi eaglewingks! Our deadline was Monday, though as you can see, we're still actively organizing the list. Unless someone has a strong opposition, I'm fine with welcoming you and your Grandson as our very last group members. I will need your stateroom number, your names, his age, any allergies and special celebrations. If you can get that to me today, I will add you all. Thanks!

Hi Jem,
That's a great point. I'm happy to take off the target day for anyone who prefers to deliver at their leisure or people can just disregard. I'm good with whatever as long as it involves boarding the ship as soon as possible!

Hi eaglewingks! I tried to pm you earlier but haven't heard back. We had closed our list on Monday and I'm open to including you and your Grandson, but this can only happen if I can add you to the list today. If you're still interested, I need your Grandson's age, both of your names, stateroom number, any allergies and special celebrations. I need to balance your interest with those who have ordered or are ordering gifts and/or crafting supplies. Please let me know this information this evening. My email is becca.zpack@gmail.com or you can pm me. Thanks!

Hi Becca,
Sorry I didn't respond sooner. I am fine to do the whole group. When will the list be complete so I can see how many I need? I didn't see the list on here anywhere.
Thanks so much!!

This will be our 4th time participating in an FE and I suggested assigning certain days for handing out gifts on our first cruise. The "seasoned" cruisers told me that it is best to hand out FE gifts whenever you have time or feel up to it. Even at 20+ staterooms (I've been in a group that was 40 cabins), it is a lot of searching and walking around. But then, you get to see all the creative ways cruisers decorate their doors. Good exercise and fun too! I let my boys deliver a few and my husband or I do the rest. I've roamed the halls well past midnight before handing out FE gifts while my family is passed out in bed. Some families like to get them out the first night, some wait for Pirate night to hand out "booty", while others buy gifts from the different ports. All in all, have fun and try not to stress out about it.

Hello and Welcome! I will try to post the late entry list here, though if it doesn't work, you can find it in our 5/10/13 meet thread, posted by SapphireMind. Hopefully this will work and you'll see a tab for late entries at the bottom...
