Great ideas! We are going on our first cruise in Sept and if there's a FE I'd love to participate. I'm not crafty but I do love giving little gifts to those on our cruise that have helped answer my newbie questions on here! We live in KC and I was thinking about getting little mini bottles of some local BBQ sauce for one night's gifting. The bottles are glass, so if I packed them in our checked bag do you think they would travel well?

Go to the Disney Meets section of this forum and look for the date of your cruise. That is were most of the FE's are set up.

Wow! As a Mom to a wonderful kid with a severe peanut allergy, I thank you for your thoughtfulness! Yes, peanut products would have to be disposed of in our FE. A waste for the giver, and a huge disappointment to a little girl.

I was touched by your compassion and thoughtfulness.

I decorated highlighters to make them more Mickey themed, found ship themed chalk boards at the $ store, and included some Jelly Bellys as the factory is right near our house. Was alot to pack, but left room in our bags for all the loot we had to bring home. You can't forget about that!

You can do what I do and ship it ahead of time. You can either send it directly to the ship (the address is in the FAQ section) or you can send it to your resort with your ressie number on it. Anyway it's less to pack

I let my FE group know about DS12's allergies, but if someone forgets and you get something with peanuts in it, regift it to another cruiser with a FE, or give it to your stateroom host. That's what I plan to do.

We brought lapel pins for our FE's, We are from Canada, so we got some flag ones for Canada, some from our Province, and even from our city. FYI, you can probably get them for free from your various governments. We gave everyone smarties, which are different from what you American's have, sort of like M&M's, and peanut free. Chocolate coins, but I couldn't garantee they were peanut free, so I just doubled up the smarties for people with allergies, and MacIntosh Toffee. Apperently there are all kinds of chocolates and chips we have up here and you don't get. I could never survive with out my weekly Skor Bar treat yumm!!! Kids got a small toy that was locally themed, Older girls got Dream bracelts, which according to Native Canadian lore filter nightmares and let only good dreams through, a few arrow head necklaces for older boys, hackey sack balls (sp) for some with Canadian flags on them. For a couple of 18 yr olds we found Moose Key chains, the antlers could be used as bottle openers. I checked first with the parents on that one. Legal drinking age there is 21, it is 19 here, but they can use it to open a bottle of cola too.
For the adults, got locally made tea's, a herbal and a regular variety, and just made little ziplock bags with the type of tea, brewing instructions and the company that made them.
Finally, based on what I read on the Dis Boards, we made little business card sized notes stating the the Cruise we went on (5 day with Key west) the date and ship, and a wish for everyone to have a wonderful cruise signed with our last name.
One of the people on our cruise gave us chocolate covered pistachio's made in their hometown, yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmy! Someone else gave us DummDumm suckers....don't have them here, yummy too.

What does everyone think of an emergency sewing kit? Not necessarily something you might bring, but something you might need?
