fish extender group

I am interested in finding out how you join a fish extender group? I am cruising Jan 21-jan 28, 2012. I am surprising my oldest son with a disney cruise for his 13th birtday which is on jan. 22. I would love to be a part of the fish extender group. It sounds like so much fun!

Go to the "meet" thread for your cruise. You can usually find out in there if they are organizing one.

So is this just for DVC members only? Or can everyone participate? And also, do all stateroom levels have the fish??

Gotta love newbies

Not just for DVC members! Anyone (even first time cruisers like me!) can participate or even organize the FE


AFAIK, the only exception to the "fish" are concierge on the Dream since the area is "gated"

So I made my FE today.

I'm going on the 9/20 Wonder repositioning cruise with my best friend Donna. Our husbands are going to Palm Springs for a week of golf and since neither one of us golf, we decided to cruise instead.

I thought it turned out really nice. I found all of the items I needed at either Joann's or Michael's. Total cost 14 dollars. I sewed the FE ( I'm not a seamstress, but do do machine quilting and I do have a very nice machine ). I do not embroider, so I purchased Disney Scrapbooking items at the above stores and glued them on.

So give it a try... I'm glad I did. The ones on ETSY and EBAY are great. But I saved over $30, enjoyed making it and it's ORIGINAL.

Great job. I love the home made ones better than the ones you can buy. I know the purchased ones are usually nicer than most of the home made versions, but there's a lot of saticfaction in making your own. My daughter and I are finishing up ours that we did together. She loved the idea from the get go and I'm the Disney freak in our house. So it's been a great Daddy/Daughter project for our cruise in October.

Way to go!!!

I was told by someone who asked DCL that the concierge gates are left open during the day, but are locked in the evening/night. So FE gifts would just need to be distributed to them during the day.

I am on the concierge for my cruise and am actually organizing the FE. If for some reason the gates are locked when you go to deliver the FE gift, you can leave it at guest services and they will deliver it to the room for you. So no worries, the concierge guests can participate as well!

I LOVE your FE!!!! And I do agree that there is something really special about all of the personal touches of the homemade ones. The ones that you buy on etsy or ebay are beautiful, and made with care by an actual human being - which is GREAT - IMO, but the uniqueness of something that is made out of excitement and family fun is the BEST!!

anyone can participate. The fish is a brass knob plaque??? I guess is how you would describe it and everyone has one next to their door. People make bags to hang on them. The FE exchange is like a combiniation of trick or treating/secret santa. It's always fun to receive presents and delivering things gives the kids and I something to do in the mornings. Oriental trading, Christmas tree shops, $ stores are good ideas. Don't spend a ton of money, most people do trinkets. I am not organizing it this year though.

I think your FE is great! Love the blue fabric also.

I did buy ours from someone on etsy, but I love crafting, I just don't have the time.

Good job!
