BTW I love the drink holders....there are nights everyone says, "Mom can you bring me back a drink?" Man I could have used one of those...
Cool... Same charms too? Maybe we were separated at birth I did save a key fob for myself

I ended up putting windows on all the Fantasy holders per my daughter's insistence. (I made a few with a denim duct tape too)
They really do come in handy and get attention too. Was ask several times where I got the drink carrier. The duct tape made it durable enough to last. I plan on using it for several cruises

I just love duct tape I even made my FE using a shopping bag from Disney's 40th and gold duct tape.

The steps were slightly different for four cup holder vs the two cup.
Start with it folded. I believe for two cup I did red row of duct tape o bottom, then gold row starting at top edge of cup part, then black strip over leaving a bit of red and gold showing,(go all the way around) I then did a red strip at top folding over (so half strip) then covered top with a couple rows of white. (For top part i did one side at a time instead of going all the way around)

I used an exacto knife to cut through at the right spots. It helps to look at is unfolded to see where you need to cut. I found using the sheets of duct tape from craft store easier for making the circles. Fantasy I just printed, laminated and glue dotted.
The main difference for four cup was an extra black row and the cutting was a bit awkward. It might be easier with a different type holder. I had Chick-fil-a holders and the 4 cup curved at top of cup part.
Hmmm... Maybe I will get a couple more and take pictures of the process.

Actually I do have some of the same charms..... Ebay and china sellers have done Mickey well.. How do you make the drink holders travel. That looks like it can take up room?

They fold flat. They are just the drink holders like you get from a fast food restaurant.

Thanks There is an awesome thread on making a FE with duct tape. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2821566
I used some of that info to come up with the dimensions for my FE.

That was the quickest/easiest of all the things I made. I cut the lanyards. I just kindof looped around wrist to get an idea of length. Ironed 7/8" Heat-n-Bond on the back and then a piece if plain ribbon on the back. I first I tried reinforcing edges with sewing machine but messed up machine (there is a reason the package says do not sew! I had to take it apart and clean everything.) Fold to make a loop. Clamp key fob hardware over ends. Tada!
I did some double sided castaway club ribbon but decided to use plain ribbon to make more from each lanyard.
I ordered the one inch hardware for key fobs.

I'm wondering if you could do the drink holder with plastic canvas....something to look into if we ever get to do another cruise.

I love the CC lanyard key fobs. I may steal that for ME. I also LOVE the MM key charms. Great idea on the drink holders. Super cute.

A FE is a fish extender. Next to your door is a fish (it's a way for Disney staff to put stuff like dinner reservations, etc for you. Also your kid can know "we're on the starfish side."). My sister explained it best to her boyfriend:
"It's like when you're a little kid and you do a Valentine card exchange."

Your FE is a little pocket thingy to extend your fish and people put goodies there.
