Yes, these are our stateroom numbers. But I would still like to know, when do we put on our pirate gear, before or after dinner?

As far as the actual FE gifts, you can be as creative as you like. It doesn't have to cost a lot of money. If you're crafty, make something. If not, look at the dollar store. There are all sorts of Disney items, lotions, journals, photo albums/frames that you could use. You could put together your favorite holiday recipes from the region you live in. There are so many possibilities...don't feel it's a financial responsibility (after all, this is vacation...NO ADDED STRESSORS ALLOWED)!!!

Have fun with it.
Thanks for posting this. I have been going back and forth on this. I really wanted to try it. I have 3 kids so don't have time to make things, and those FEs that people sell on ebay are ridiculously expensive. Using stockings is a great idea, and I think I can come up with something now that I have an idea of what people do as gifts.

So DVC Deernut can you please add me to the FE? It will be myself (katie), DH (Dan), DS9 Caleb, DS7 Sam, and DD4 Grace. We are in stateroom 6682.. I think lol!

Just found this on another thread! Wow I'm getting excited! Love the idea of doing our Christmas card photo here!

celebrate the magic of the holiday season November 2012 through early January 2013 onboard the Disney Cruise Line® ships and at Disney's Castaway Cay.

The festive events and activities onboard include:
• A tree-lighting ceremony in the atrium lobby, where "snow" magically falls
• Character "meet and greets" in appropriate holiday attire
• International holiday caroling by Crew members from around the world
• Special family time, when families join together to design and decorate their own gingerbread houses.
• Classic holiday story time

The festive events and activities at Disney's Castaway Cay include:
• Castaway Cay transformed into a Magical Wonderland with “snow” flurries, a Christmas Tree, Mr. and Mrs. Snowman (with shell noses and tropical shirts)
• Carolers
• The island's tram decorated to resemble a reindeer, complete with antlers and tail

You can do it either way...but I would suggest before dinner...all the servers are in their pirate costumes. We generally have late dining so we put ours on to go to the show....

Hope this helps!

Well ladies and gentlemen... An update.

Kaitlin figured out the board spelling out "Ultimate Orlando Vacation". She sat in front of it for 5 hours straight yesterday. So she thinks she knows that and isn't being as nosey anymore and has accepted that her surprise is in Orlando not a cruise. I think I have this one in the bag... As long as I don't do something to mess it up like leav cruise docs out lol.

THE DEADLINE IS SUNDAY BUT SINCE YOUR ASKING ABOUT SIGNING UP NOW I DONT THINK ANYONE WOULD MIND IF YOU TOOK A COUPLE DAYS TO DECIDE. IM OK WITH THAT BUT ITS UP TO EVERYONE ELSE. DONT LEAVE YOUR DECISION TOO LONG WE ARE GOING TO HAVE MEET AND GREET EITHER AT WAVES ON TOP DECK OR BON VOYAGE ON DECK 3 BY THE ATRIUM. BOTH WERE SUGGESTED AT 3pm ON SUNDAY..

I was just pulling out my Christmas decorations today. We leave for our pre-cruise trip to WDW on November 21st. Since we won't be home for quite a while, I want to get my decorating done now!

Anyway, I had been planning on just using our Christmas stockings for the FE. Then a sad thought crossed my mind... would anyone take them from our door? I've had the same one my whole life. I don't know why anyone would want a 34 year old stocking that says "Katie" (it is a popular name !), but just had to ask for peace of mind! Any insight on FE theft would be helpful!

If it were me, I would go buy a less exensive stocking...anything from the dollar store they had felt ones, Lowes (I bought 2 furry ones for about $3.00 each, or Wal Mart they had some $1 and $2 stockings too)! I wouldn't risk someone taking it as it is an item that is not replaceable! If you wanted JoAnns an Michaels have glitter glue, you could always write your name with that or get some inexpensive stick on letters and use those instead. Just a couple of ideas for you. Like I had mentioned befoer we have only done one FE exchange before, and we didn't have any problems...but did have someone say that a FE had gone missing. Others also suggested using a tie wrap to secure your FE to the fish.

Hope this helps!
