We would love to take part in an FE exchange, we'd never heard of it before but reading people's reports it seems like great fun. How does it get organised?

Thanks for the link. It looks like there is not a semi formal night then.


We would be interested in joing a FE group.

I have participated in an FE Exchange, but never organized one. I don't know how to go about it. Anyone know how?

I have gotten advice on how to organize an FE Exchange. I would be happy to organize one for our cruise if there is enough interest.

Please PM me with the following info.:

DISboard username, cabin number or GTY, first name of all the people in your cabin, ages of kids in cabin and whether boys (B) or girls (G), any special cruise celebrations

Here is a thread with some basic info about FE Exchanges:

http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=378

Feel free to give one gift to each cabin, or a gift to each person in the cabin. You can give gifts a few times throughout the cruise or just as many times as you like. Gifts can be homemade or store bought.

Guidelines for our fish extender:

1. Each cabin is to provide AT LEAST one gift to each cabin participating in the fish extender. You can provide a gift to each person within that cabin, just the kids, or one gift for the whole cabin...that is up to you. Of course, you are welcome to give more than one gift...but the minimum is one.

2. All gifts should be delivered by 4pm on Thurs., Aug. 22.

3. You can include a tag with your DISboards user name on the gift if you would like, but it is not required.

Here are some items you may want to bring with you for your exchange:

1. The FE gifts that you are making/preparing.

2. An FE pocket/hanger to hang outside your cabin. You can find them online on ebay, Etsy, or you can make one yourself. Some people use a canvas bag.

3. A zip tie to help attach your FE HANGER. Sometimes they disappear.

4. Scissors to cut the zip tie when you're packing.


I will PM the list of participants after the sign up deadline, which is July 22.

This is my first time organizing this, but if you have any questions I will answer them to the best of my ability.

Thanks!

No, and DCL confirmed there won't be one on our cruise either. And it seems there's no character breakfast or dessert buffet

But on a happier note - Well done and thank you Jeni for organising the FE exchange
It will add a little more fun and magic 2 the cruise, not to mention that sorting out the FE and the gifts will make the time between now and the cruise go a little faster
Anyone making their own FE?

FE Exchange

Hi Jeni, just wondering if many are signing up for the FE?

Also, how do I PM you? (Sorry, I'm a complete technophobe!)

So far, three cabins have signed up. To PM me, just click on my name in the upper left corner of this box and it will give you choices. You can choose to private message me and then send the info.

If you need my email, let me know and I can give that to you instead. Do you know how to receive PMs? I can send you my email that way if you like.

If you know anyone that would be interested in the FE, have them contact me.

Hi Jeni, I've pm'd you our details for the FE list. Thanks for explaining how to do it! I'm ok with opening messages just not sending them!

I'm afraid I don't know anyone else on our cruise. I've just joined Facebook, and I've looked to see if there's a group for our cruise on there but there doesn't seem to be and I've posted a thread on the DIBB (British version of DISboards) but so far nobody on our cruise has posted.

FE exchange

Hi Jeni, There is a small group on Cruise Critic from our cruise and I have posted a post on there about our FE exchange. I have invited anyone interested to PM me on there or to contact you on here.

One person, Snapcrackleandpop, has shown interest but we are having problems PMing each other at the moment.
