Hi all, just wondering what sort of gifts are generally given for FE's. Do you give things you buy on the ship or do you take things onboard with you that you bring from elsewhere (like Australia in our case lol). This will be our 1st Disney cruise and we're really looking forwrd to all the Disney fun, such as FE's

Bring on November already! And now here is a pirate. Just because! lol

We did the FE on our last cruise. You bring gifts from home, some people spend lots of money, some very little. Do a search on here and see what others have done. We received stickers, scrapbook pages, bracelets, candy, photo pages, glow sticks and lots more. It was so fun to go back to the room and see what was left for us! We'd like to do it again for sure 😃

Just got off the Fantasy 7-night which was my seventh Disney cruise. We've been on the Magic for three cruises already (7, 7 & 15 nights) so we REALLY can't wait to see the changes. At first we were sad but the more we think of the changes the more exciting it gets.

Fish extender gifts are a lot of fun!! The only hard part is waiting & hoping everyone doesn't put all of them out by the first few days, LOL. We've learned to bring a sack of some sort with us to store all the FE gifts in while on the ship. It can be a little overwhelming to have a lot of little things sitting around the stateroom taking up all the counter space available. Even the bag I brought this last time was too small. TIP: Bring a pair of scissors to cut the string/ribbon some people use.

Looking forward to a cruise in the winter!!

We are so hoping we can get a group together, because it really seems like fun. Thoughts anyone?!?!

Anyone coming that has participated in an FE in the past?
We just booked a 4 generation (great grandmothers, grandmothers, daughters and cousins) cruise and have never been on one during the holidays...plenty of holidays at the Magic Kingdom but never on a cruise!! We can't wait. I haven't been able to find any lists for FE and have never done that, either but would love to. This is our first time on the Magic and we are psyched to be on it within the first few months of the re-imagining!!

I haven't seen any signup yet but a few people, like myself, who are interested! I read one post where a woman said there were 60 on her ship and they had to hand make something so it wasn't too costly for 60 people!

I need enough time to plan it all Can you tell I'm excited?!?!?

Greetings!!! Driving down from SC to my hometown MIAMI for this cruise with DH and DS 15. This is DS 2nd cruise (went on the 1st one kicking and screaming. Now he helps plan them) and hopes to make lifelong friends at the Vibe.

Do we know if they'll have pirate night? Excited that the Xmas festivities will be held.
