My family is also interested in participating in the Fish Extenders gift exchanges! This is brand new to us! We've been on one Disney cruise before but didn't know about it at that time and we've been trying to find info about doing this, and that's how I heard about this board.

Yay. I asked my friend to send me an email on how to set up the spread sheet for this. I guess if it only ends up being a couple of us, wont be to bad. We need to decide when the cut off for people to join will be. I have never done the FE, but my group did this last cruise and they had a cut off of a month before. I think this makes sense, especially with Christmas coming up. What do you guys think? Maybe we can say December 1st as cut off.

I think that's a good idea to have a deadline and Dec. 1 sounds good. That will give us time to prepare our giveaway items! I am hoping to try to make some handmade goodies too if time permits and depending on how many people we have in our group. This should be a lot of fun! Thanks for organizing it!

I am new to all of this - the boards & Disney cruise. We have cruised before just not Disney. Our girls (14,11,6) don't know yet so we are super excited to surprise them with this cruise. Just learned about these fish extenders today, one of my friends who has cruised Disney tons told me abou them.

This is all of our first times for the FE. I posted some links in one of the earlier comments that tells about it, and gives some gift ideas. Are you interested in doing it?

The December 1st cutoff seems reasonable to allow time for folks to prepare homemade gifts. Please keep us posted on what information you'll need for the spreadsheet. I'm excited to get started!

I will need your name, name of people in your cabin. Ages and boy or girl for the children. Your cabin #. Dis screen name, and your email address so that I can send out the completed list. Our cut off for the list will be Dec 1st, so that everyone has time to get their gifts together. If you have any suggestions or input, please feel free to let me know. Thank you so much.

Jessica

I woke up in the middle of the night, and thougt it wasn't very smart to have all of our info on this open forum. I know I am probably more paranoid than I need to be, but probably just the mom in me. I will pm you guys my email address, so you can send me the info. Thanks so much.

I think our family (girls 14,11,6) would love to participate in the FE. Someone will have to give me some better details because I don't think I truly understand the whole thing. Looking forward to itl

I've e-mailed my family's info! Just wondering... do we give gifts for each person in each family everyday? I just want to make sure I'll be doing this right, although it sounds like this is a first-time thing for most of us!

I was under the impression it was one per cabin kind of gift or 1 for the adults and maybe 1 for kids?

I got your info and added it to the list. I think it is totally up to the individual. I see some people do a gift for everyone, and some do a group gift. I am going to wait closer to the December 1st cutoff to see how many people are in our group. If it stays small, I think I will do one for each of the kids, then probably a group gift. I know we are excited about doing it, and will appreciate whatever we gift. Just my opinion.

I tried sending you a pm, but for some reason it did not accept. Please send me your Room # and floor, The names of the people in your cabin, and the age and gender of kids. Your last name. If anyone is celebrating anything. Your Dis name, and your email address. Thanks, Jessica
