Question... Do you get a pin for sailing... Like one specific to the cruise you are on? If so do they do it for all cruises or just special cruises.

I also went and just bought pirate outfits for kaitlin and i. They are really cool looking.

Also finished the fe today... Will post the picture later after i get it uploaded.
the only special pins on the ship are when we cruise on the dvc cruises. We are allowed 2 each cabin on the member cruise. They only bring so many. Somebody told me while we were standing in line for the halloween pins at mnsshp that the dvc stuff from the member cruise was being put on ebay right from the ship. Have you ever seen the pin for the spectro magic parade where the floats spin around the outside. I wish i had bought it years ago when i saw it. They do have a pin trading night with the officers etc on the ship. Its kind of a meet and greet in the main atrium.

and just to clarify is it a gift from each person participating or from each cabin?
USUALLY ITS ONE GIFT FROM EACH CABIN TO EVERYONE IN THE OTHER CABINS. ITS UP TO WHATEVER THE PERSON WANTS TO GIVE. LAST YEAR WE FLEW DOWN WITH ABOUT 100 lbs OF FEs IN OUR CARRY ONS ONE TIME I HAD TO EXPLAIN WHAT ALL THE WHITE PLASTIC BAGS WERE IN MY CARRY ON.

welcome to the group, im running the fe, if you want to do it i can inform everone your cabin number as long as you tell me at the meet and greet or somewhere on the ship. I will go around and get a hold of everyone and give them your cabin number. I did that on our last cruise which was the dvc member cruise. Hope you will join the fe.

It would be interesting to talk to you about what you did at disney. We seem to have a few florida people on this cruise.

Not a silly question. I am Pirate Bob, I worked in the pirates bazaar and talked like a pirate all of the time, so I picked up the name. When I retired they gave me the name tag. Arrgh!!!

I have finally convinced my husband Anton to not think the FE is lame so we will be participating. :D

We are both 31 and from Melbourne. He was a cast member for 8 years I think mostly working in magic kingdom at jungle cruise and space mountain.

I'll have to get our cabin number later when I get home and let you know. (Posting from phone right now) All I know is we are on deck 2.

I am afraid that I will be the one in a pirate T shirt and tri-corner hat. My days in pirate garb retired with me. DW(Bano) and DH(Bob) will do the FE our stateroom is still GTY. We will talk to Herb and Janet later to see if they want to do it also.

Greetings fellow cruisers! My best friend and I just booked this cruise. This will be her first Disney cruise and I know you guys will help me make it amazing for her. She loves Disney and cruises and Donald Duck! She lives in Georgia, and I live in Florida.

Has the cut-off date for the FE already passed? I haven't discussed this with her yet, but I think she would really enjoy it.

Is there a Facebook page for this cruise?

Thanks!
