I loved your Hidden Mickey pendant! It was so cute. I was wondering if you would be so kind and send me a PM with the link?

Thank you in advance and have a magical day.....

Autograph books?
I saw that some one purchased Mickey earbuds... Could be pricey...

It is my first tutorial. My DD is going to make it user friendly but while we wait for that you will have to put up with my oversized poorly colored photos.
Thinking about making some of these. How many did you do? Did you just start collecting the drink carriers over time or ask them to give you some?

I ask for 3 of each type (4 cup and 2 cup) a few different times. But like PP said you could just ask all at once. When I went to get some for the tutorial that chick-fil-a only had 4 cup carriers.

Yeah! SO happy to be looking through this thread again! I went a little crazy with our FE exchange in June 2012... had so much fun!

This time we have booked the 7 night Med in June 2014...not 100% sure we are actually doing it. But.... I definitely want to do FE again but we will be backpacking-ish around Europe for a week before and after cruise with just a carry on, so like NO luggage space at all! So I will need to find an awesome idea that is TINY and light!! Please point me in the right direction if you have seen something cool!! I had so much fun crafting it all last time so I would like to make something.

I guess in theory I could mail a box ahead to the ship or to our hotel in Barcelona? Has anyone done that?

Thanks!!
Kim

Hi. Considering doing a FE for our Sept cruise. How many people participate/how many gifts would I need to make. One gift per person per day or per cruise? Thank you!

It's really up to you, but a gift per person, per day would be a LOT!! I do one gift per cabin once during the cruise. I think that's the majority - although on longer cruises, sometimes folks will do more than one day.

We are doing the May Panama Canal cruise which is 14 days. Kids will get something each week and then we have something for each cabin Once... Delivered early the first week.

I agree that a gift per person, per day would be a lot. Regardless of how long the cruise is!

I still had a great time making everything, but there were some long nights in the weeks running up to our departure to make sure I finished.

So, here's the results-- sorry I couldn't figure out how to actually post the Pictures here:

Welcome packets for each cabin with personalized magnets, wristlet key chains, shrinky dinks key chains, and a wordle souvenir magnet

I've also assembled as many of the pictures as possible from these two threads on my pinterest page: http://pinterest.com/dzhenna/disney-...fe-gift-ideas/

Hope these are helpful! Happy Sailing!
Wonderful items. Where did you get your ribbon for your key fob?

Hi all. Can't believe that I forgot to take photos of all our fist extenders that we handed out! I was a bit ambitious, and decided one of our gifts would be a homemade knitted Mickey Mouse washcloth. I went from one per person (50??) to one per stateroom (a more manageable 12).



Here is one that is closer up:



I wish there was a way we'd get feedback to see if the things we made were actually used. I also did paperclip and Disney ribbon bookmarks, Mardi Gras Beads, magnet photo of Mickey and Minnie dressed up for Mardi Gras, (our cruise was during Mardi Gras), tattoos, highlighters, glow stick necklaces, Family Stateroom Magnet (looked like a cast member badge), fruit snacks, and I can't remember what else!

Jen
