My FE group only has 2 cabins, besides my own, as of today. Our cruise is May 2... My question is: when do people usually start signing up for the FE exchange... This is my first cruise and I have so many ideas and hope more people join

I've had multiple groups on a cruise, but I just joined both. Didn't want to leave anyone out. We didn't have anyone switch from the 1st group to the second I don't think.

I want to do that, too...I am just not sure if anyone will get peeved at me for doing it. I am not able to give big fancy gifts, but I have plenty to share with everyone. Shall I go for it?

You tend to get a big influx after the paid in full date. And then for some reason A DAY AFTER THE CUTOFF! It NEVER fails! You set a cutoff date and then you get a slew of folks wanting to join right after. (So I always make a few extra to accomodate stragglers.)

I also find that the shorter cruises during the school year tend to have much smaller FE groups (unless they are special cruises like the DVC or DiS cruises). The biggest FE I've had are the special cruises, like the 10 night Christmas cruise.

Don't worry, I'm sure that more folks will pop up.

That's totally fine with me! The more the merrier IMHO. But maybe just post and ask if you can join both. I don't think anyone would have a problem with it. I mean it's you that's got to lug all the stuff and keep the two lists straight right?

Note to attach to lifesavers? Any suggestions??

Hi everyone,

I am cruising in March. I picked up some packages of Lifesavers to use as part of my fish extender gift. My plan was to make Disney wrappers to cover the rolls of lifesavers. A few years ago, I made wrappers to cover chocolate bars and there was someone on the DIS who designed the wrappers. Well, I have searched and searched and it appears that no one makes Lifesaver wrappers anymore. I should have checked this before I bought all these rolls of Lifesavers!! Anyways, so now I want to attach a cute little note to each roll of Lifesavers but I can't quite think of anything. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. (My DH just rolled his eyes when I asked for some suggestions from him!!)

You could post a special request to one of the Dis-igners to make something for a lifesaver roll, I think it's a very cute idea! Post back here if you do find something, please.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will put a request in. I just hesitated because the amazing people who create all the signs and stuff just seem to get so many requests - I didn't want to bother anyone. I thought I could maybe think of a cute little note that related to cruising on my own but I am not too creative!

It was also pretty reasonable - about $10.
Just had to share!
Thank you so much for posting. I am not crafty and had no idea what I would do for our fish extender. I went to our local Ikea today and picked this up for $4.99. I'm going to cut off the tassels and cover the existing trim with some Disney ribbon. In the end it will cost less than $10. Thank you again.

So many great ideas!! I'm a bit overwhelmed about what to make. Hopefully I come up with something soon. We cruise in just a little over a month

dh would think this is the best.......
your brilliant!
Sorry for the delay. I was looking back through thread and saw this.

I cut the lanyards into strips. Cut complimentary color 7/8" ribbon for back. Ironed 7/8" heat-n-bond on back of ribbon. Then ironed ribbon on the back of the lanyard strip. Used either glue square or E6000 to hold two end together to make a loop. Clamped the hardware over the end.

I got the hardware from eBay Search key fob hardware.

The biggest expense is buying the lanyards if you don't have them. I wish I could find the Good Will you donated to. if anyone has a abundance of lanyards they want to donate (or sell cheap)- I would love them
