I will check out Etsy, thought I'm not sure what it is, but will google it.

When you say have I thought of making a CD, making a CD of what? And I had not thought of that becuase if someone gave me a CD of something I wouldn't use it, so I'm not sure what to make on a CD. I was actually thinking of things like antibacterial hand stuff in little squirt jars, toothpaste and stuff I could find at the Disney outlets. Maybe something I could find in So Cal, but a lot of people on our cruise are locals, so I'm at a loss!



I figure I want to do any tastings that are available! I'll have to remember the Promenade Lounge, I don't know what my block against that was! I'll have to get some creativity going for the FEE. I wish people wanted music related stuff, we're closing our store and have all kinds of stuff music related to get rid of!

We have these pocket knives engraved with our store names, my cleaning lady suggested I give those out as FEE gifts, can you just imagine? Me boarding with like 20 pocket knives in my luggage???? So back to the drawing board....
As far as Fish Extenders are concerned, I have been dealing with Gradysmommy for years and she is an absolute charm to deal with. She is a fellow DISer. She used to sell on Ebay, but has now moved across to Etsy.

I don't think they would let you bring knives on board.

Thanks for all the Etsy suggestions! I finally got it together and ordered my FE. I'll post pictures when it arrives next week. I went with iluvdisney. She was very responsive and helpful throughout my process. I just ordered it an hour or so ago! Yay!

I really enjoyed the Museum. We spent close to 4 hours between the museum and the gift shop Yes, add me to the list of people that couldn't get out of that last section without tears. But what an incredible display...the whole thing!!!

Oh, I can't wait to see it. My favorite FE is one that I had made for our Dream cruise but it has my Mom's name on it (since she was with us instead of DH). Our other one is just a plain 4-pocket one. If we decided to join the FE for the Fantasy cruise (still in question), I will need to have another one made since we will be a group of 5 on that trip (DD's BFF is joining us).

Thanks Everyone! I'm really happy about how it came out. I was leaning towards something really busy looking (pattern of material behind the inron ons) and Fran pointed out that it was better to be simple for the background so that the characters stood out. I'm glad I took her suggestion. If I went with a patterned pocket, you would have a hard time reading our names on it. We went with the classic Mickey colors as the boats use the same colors as well.

So I have this question. About how much do people seem to spend on average for the gifts? I don't want to be cheap, but I don't want to break the bank. It appears that we have 57 folks in our FEE. I asked on the thread and $2 per gift makes it around $100, $4 ups it to $200 and so on. So far no answers, but some people have already said they are done. I wish I could make something, but I don't have that kind of time or creativity.

Although Maybe I could make some sort of mini recipe book for the DWs and DDs I'll have to look into that. I have TONS of recipes and perhaps I can Disneyfy them just enough and make them fun. Now that my HoB Gig is over I'm hoping I will have more time (even though our Disney gig is rapidly approaching and we didn't even expect that one this year, so it's kind of like a bonus!)

Anyways, I'll have to wrap my head around this new idea and see what I can do in the next two weeks otherwise it will be purchased gifts.

I've usually made up bags that are generic with stuff for adults and kids so it doesn't matter who gets them when we pass them out.

so how do you distribute that? I each lid has a pocket with their name on it, they're going to want what was in "they're" pocket. I've seen Corinna's gifts and I have no hope of being that creative. But I've read reports about people who got pencils, stickers, I guess I could do that along with a couple other things I'm thinking about.

I like the recipe idea, I might develop that!
