In one FE thread someone posted a FE they bought at Ikea. I checked and it was available at Ikea here in Australia. Pretty reasonably priced too, if that helps.

Here you go http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?p=43001824
I didn't find it at first either, then realized I was in the 2014 thread, so that may have been where you were too.

Thanks very much! I tried several times, but perhaps you are right and I was on the 2014 board!

Just looked them up, they look great! Should be pretty easy to personalise myself. Thanks!

Shipping FE to Port Canaveral

Has anyone ever done this before? I am traveling with my daughter, who is disabled and my 10 year old granddaughter. Worrying that it will be too much to manage with equipment and luggage. Thanks for any suggestions.

I have not shipped but have read many threads about people who have shipped and it seems to work out fine! Did you search the board about shipping? Though I'm sure people who have actually shipped will also reply!

That being said, I notice you posted this on the FE board. Have you signed up to do the FE for your cruise? We went on our first cruise this past July and did the FE (I was with my 13 year old and my 78 year old mother) The FE was great fun and I think my mom enjoyed it just as much as my daughter! I would do it if you can...it will add to the magic of your cruise!

Also, I have found Disney to be very helpful with everything. I am sure if you call and give a heads up that your daughter is disabled, they will be very accommodating.

Do you have early or main dining? We wanted early but were assigned to main. My mom really didn't want to eat that late. They were so helpful and even though technically there were 'no seats' they found a way to switch us after the first night.

Point being, I think they will go out of their way to help you!

Have a great trip!

Old thread I know, but I've never posted my pic from 2009.

The extender was pretty much all felt and the Mickey ears on the door were all foam.

We have shipped, with no problems. We used UPS so we could track the package. We cruised on Sunday so I shipped the package the Monday before. We live in MD, it arrived on Thursday. The box was 12x12x12.

Quite a few people have them for sale on Etsy. Don't know if they ship to Canada, but I can't see why not.

Fe...

I made my own and I am a novice at sewing. You can google fish extenders and there are directions on how to make them with measurements for the pieces of fabric. Instead of sewing, you could also use this stuff called stitch witchery. It basically binds with the use of a hot iron. I would post a pic of mine, but I don't have enough posts yet

It was a lot of fun for my kids to get "presents". Also we didn't have a HUGE group, so it wasn't too bad packing everything in our luggage. But, it was also a short 3 day cruise.

I also purchased a Fish Extender from Gradysmommy (via Etsy) for our upcoming May 2013 cruise. I received it two days ago and it is perfect. I would send anyone her way
