Ok I really apologize for not responding sooner. I kept checking back that night and then I got sick and didn't get back online. I didn't mean to leave everyone who responded hanging. I just scrolled back to try to get some ideas and saw how many of you replied to let us join your group and feel horrible to leave you all wondering and not replying. I promise I don't usually suck like that.

I sent the email with our basic info. Anyone still willing to exchange with us please just let ravensilverlight know. And again any big gifts that have been planned please don't worry about including us. We will love and appreciate anything, especially with the late notice.

LIFE HAPPENS.
I know it seems that way sometimes, but we don't actually all live on the boards! We've all been there. Scroll through the thread...there were times when this thing went days or weeks without any action. It's all good.

*we now return to MY regularly scheduled hyperactivity and celebration of stupid things*
Got my photopass package today. That's the last bit of trip paperwork I was waiting on. We pre-ordered the photopass + for Disneyland; apparently I do not yet have enough pictures of DH and I looking silly with Mickey ears, with the characters, or watching Stitch pop up out of strange places. We haven't had actual pictures done in years - we just cruise and visit Disney!

I knew people here would understand. It's almost Mickey time!!!
I know right!! I loved the park hoppers. We even got a cool sling backpack since I used my Disney Visa. Hubby gets to use it though, as much as I LOVE sling bags, they always look like crap on me

So, I got really into making my FE gifts that I can't stop myself from making them . I have decided to make a small batch for the characters and cast members that I meet to give as gifts . I figure they make my day so magical that I can add a bit of my own magic to theirs Plus who doesn't want on Mickey's good side.

Welcome aboard Amy and Family


as per anonymous gifts, I'm not really sure if it supposed to be a secret or not... this is my first rodeo

I didn't really sign my name, but all my gifts have orange name tags on them. Only color of cardstock in the house

It depends on what you want to do. I usually include my info somewhere, but it's just a poor ploy for attention because I make the gift on which I put my name! lol...

Question

I'm so excited for this trip

Sadly though I had to put a hold on one gift till next Tuesday since my boss at work has to help me with one step, but other that that I am ready to go gift wise. I love giving gifts, I'm told I'm quite good at it , the sucky part is that I will start my vacation on the 23rd and can't give any gifts till at least the 2nd of December . What if I can't wait it give all your gifts to the people at the Best Western Plus

I am so excited that I have plans to pack this weekend , the perks of living in a cold place. I can pack for this trip and not have to worry about my clothes since I am not wearing summer items I will hopefully be donning in a few weeks time.

So I have not lived in Cali for 9 years now, so the weather patterns evade my memory ...

For those of you close how is the weather now?
Should I plan to wear layers for mornings and evenings in Cali?
Will there be any rain or are you experiencing a drought as well?
How about gas prices?
Any other advice on things that have changed since 2003?

Packing for Cali

I don't live in Cali but we have had annual passes for the last 3 years. Layers are your friend. Cali and Arizona are in the middle of perpetual summer right now so the highs are hovering anywhere from the mid 60's to low 80's in Anaheim next week. It's not expected to change much any time soon. Depending on easily you get hot or cold will determine the layers you need.

You get hot, you go for ice cream at Gibson Girl or the Saloon. You get cold you hot chocolate or coffee

What is "FE Exchange"

I've never been on a Disney cruise before and I'm completely lost as to what an FE exchange is. Can someone help? It sounds like fun, sounds like some sort of meet and exchange of gifts (I LOVE making things!!) My husband and I are booked on Wonder for Dec 2nd... Can't wait!

Well lets see a FE or Fish Extender is a pocket of some kind that hangs on the fish hook outside your door on the boat. There really are no rules, you can give one or more gifts, there is also no restriction on cost. It is basically a free for all on what you would like to do. I think I could squeeze you in, though I think we are getting right at the cut off since I leave on the 23rd. Who is in your family? Names? Ages? Favorite characters? You can email Jen (ravensilverlight@yahoo.com) your info. I can't speak for the rest of the group though.
