We did a Disney Cruise for our Honeymoon many years ago but this will be our three year old son's first cruise.
Welcome! We wanted to do a cruise for our honeymoon but it was just too expensive for us then but ever since they started sailing I've wanted to go! So excited for this one. DD is 4!

Help!! New disney cruiser

Well, I obviously have a lot to learn before the cruise! Fish extenders, door decorations, etc. This is our first Disney cruise for our family of three and would really like to make this trip very memorable for our 9 year old son!

Any advice would be appreciated as well as meeting other families with boys my son's age!

Nice! My eldest son will be 8 1/2. Maybe we can get him and your son together for a Oceaneer's Club or Lab play date! lol

Hi there! I'm the Fish Extender list keeper! Send me a private message or an email (sweetpee_1993@yahoo.com) with the following information:

stateroom #
Disboards username
email address
names of each person in the family, age/gender of kids

For an example, this is what my family's info looks like:

Stateroom # 2111
Disboards = sweetpee_1993
Email = sweetpee_1993@yahoo.com
Family = DW/Kelly, DH/Tracey, DS/Chandler/16 yo, & DS/Brian/15 yo

I'll put you on the email list for the fish extender exchange and email you a link to the Google doc spreadsheet. We will be accepting new additions to the list until December 2nd. After that date what you see on the list is the final headcount to base your gifts upon. There's no set rules for the fish extender exchange. You can make or purchase your own to hang outside your door. You do as many or as few gifts as you'd like to be delivered whenever you wish to make the rounds on the ship. I definitely suggest waiting until after dinner on embarkation day to allow time for any stateroom number changes that may occur to be sent to you. I'll take care of that!

Welcome aboard!!!!

How do you send us the stateroom changes? We don't have a smartphone so we will not have access to email.

Any word on how many we have so far on the Fish Extender List? I'd like to get a jump on the items I'll be making for everyone. Thanks!

The spreadsheet shows 52 people; that does not include the post above yours that would add another 12 people for a total of 64.

Wow!! That's a lot so far and still with a few weeks for more people to join. I'm starting to worry about how many gifts we will have to bring since we are flying!! Do you think we might have to split into 2 groups?

Our first cruise as a family and Nana and Papa are coming also. We are giving this as a Christmas gift to our kids. I am soo excited and a little nervous. We have two daughters 11 & 9 and a son 3. We really want it to be a family vacation and we love spending time with our kids. The thing I am most nervous about is....Are there a lot of Family activities? I know they have a lot for kids, but wasn't sure about the entire family???? Thanks for the info!

There are a ton of family activities! In your Navigator, the guide you get every night detailing what activities there are on the ship for the next day, they categorize them by who can participate. Family, or teens or adults only, etc...so you know ahead of time so you can plan your day. Most port adventures are for families too. There is even a family beach on Castaway Cay to enjoy the beach together!

My husband and I are the same way with our two boys. We would rather spend time with them, but trust me, knowing they are in good hands in the kids' clubs does give you those moments to decompress and do things with your spouse or your adult family members...and you don't have to worry about the kids being bored...you'll probably have to drag them out of the clubs kicking and screaming! lol (Well, you know, in a good way. )
