Me too....there is not that much people on this thread but I read someone having to give like 75 FE out. That would be too much for me to bring stuff all the way from Hawaii. I would need another suit case....lol.

I don't mind organizing one but I don't know where to even start. I will check the other threads to see if there is someone that would help me get started or I will try to look it up.

Do you guys think we should do it for everyone or just the kids?

I don't know if I'm doing this right, but I'm trying to post something and it tells me that I have not made 10 posts - so I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to try and get my 10 posts in. Thanks

Aloha everyone! I have been waiting to see if anyone is organizing a fish extender for our cruise. But it seems like our thread has had a slow start. I'm willing to jump all in and get this thing going! This is my first Disney Cruise, my second cruise overall (last one was 22 years ago) and only just discovered DISboards last week. I'm still unsure of how this site works, but I will try my best to navigate these waters.

I checked on some other sailings before and after us and they all seem to have been working on organizing their FE exchange for quite some time. I counted the number of people here on our thread and there are 17 of us. Isn't it such a small group? I wonder why? Well any way, the important thing is that we are all here and ready to go on this awesome cruise so lets get this FE going! Please message me if you have any ideas or suggestions on how we can encourage more people to join our thread.

I am going to ask that if you are interested in participating to sign up by April 21. I would like to have at least 12 cabins signed up. If on the 21st its less than that, I will cancel this FE and do a small exchange with my family (we have 3 cabins).

So if you are interested in joinig this M.U.F.E. - Monsters University Fish Extender, please provide the following information on this message and lets see how we do! Give me a M - m, Give me a U - u, Give me a F -f, Give me a E - e, Goooooo Teammmmm!

Much Mahalo's for taking lead on this....this is so awesome and I hope we get enough. It sounds like so much fun to do. I just get so excited reading all the other posts and seeing all the things they do on Disney Cruises. This is my DH and I 4th cruise to Alaska but first time on DCL with our DS. Our last cruise was 17 years ago so we are sooo excited.

Let me know if I can help in anyway.....

Here is my info....

I hope they serve hot breakfast in port. We are NOT early risers. We booked late morning and early afternoon excursions. I don't want to be a cranky yell machine on vacation.
Thanks for sharing the info!! 20 mins is completely do-able!

I downloaded a free iPad app called triposo - it's pretty much like having a travel guide to almost any city you can think of. Search Vancouver and tons of stuff pops up, it might help

Alaska is in there too - not each city, just one entry for the state! But it's informative. Lots of great ideas!



Ok - bear with me for this one. You'll need a map of Vancouver. Take this one, for example. We were staying pretty much in the center of square C3. One day we walked from the apartment to the launch for Granville Island (F3), and then all around Granville Island, and then back to the apartment. With a toddler in a stroller. Another day we walked to and from the aquarium (A4) IN THE RAIN with a toddler in a stroller. And it was fine! We took our time and made a day of it. The only time we were in a car or cab was to and from the airport, and getting from the apartment to the cruise terminal (because of the luggage....otherwise we could have easily walked it).

Maybe that will give you some scale?

I am having a hard time remembering what time breakfast was open, to be honest. I know you CAN order room service, it starts pretty early. Might be worth checking out a TR with navigators from last year's cruises. And the buffet does have plenty of hot food items available...again, depends what time it opens....but I'm sure you can get something before your 7:15 start time. Also keep in mind you are not meeting at the train at 7:15, you're meeting onboard at 7:15 and headed to the train together. So that gives you a little wiggle room

Hope that helps!
Yes that does help - and thank you so much for the ideas and map! I had downloaded that map on my iPad one day so I'm going to print it out for reference for us. Strangely - I had requested a bunch of free info/brochures through the travel bureaus for each city and usually when I do this I get bombarded and so far, I haven't received anything yet and it's been weeks. I hope they send the info soon as I'd love to have more maps of the cities were going to visit and take with us.

Erica, I am going to check out that app. Thanks!
Thanks!! AWESOME! I guess you won't be eating that early with us, then huh? You said you weren't an early riser....lol

That is very sweet of you to organize the FE. We are passing this time around but I wanted to at least acknowledge you and mark as down as no. We only booked this cruise last month and due to the excursions, too much needed for our suitcases to travel for 9 days, we just can't make it happen this time around. I hope you get your group together and have a blast!

We'll pass on the FE also.

Great to see that a FE is being organized, however, we are going to pass as well. Please mark us down as a "no". Thanks!

Okay, the fish extender idea seems neat. We are new to Disney, so I am not really sure how big of an effort we are talking about, and I would like to know more effort making a decision.

Do people do gifts every day? One gift for each person in each stateroom? Or one for the whole cabin?

I'm waiting until the April 21 deadline to decide how to organize this. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I certainly would not want to burden anyone, but so far my thoughts are - 1 mandatory stateroom gift from your home state/town/country and 1 mandatory individual gift. Additional gifts are optional. Let me know you thought folks!
