Welcome aboard! Are you on Facebook? We have facebook group going for this cruise.

I am coordinating the fish extender for this cruise. All I need is:

Names, Kids names/gender/age, cabin number, any allergies.

You are welcome to PM me this info, post it here, or post it on our facebook group. There is a link in this thread somewhere to the facebook group.

Welcome aboard!

Shellmanfamily - you will have to contact the people on your cruise to organize it with them. Or switch to a week prior and join this one

Here is the link to your cruise http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3068777

it looks like there is a googledoc to sign up for the FE on your cruise.

Hopefully we get some more people on this cruise, maybe some IGT/OGT/VGT rates will open up after the PIF date....that usually brings the crowds!

This is one of the quietest groups I've seen on the Dis. I like the smaller groups, when they are chatty. But this small group is so quiet it's hard to get to know anyone. I hope it picks up some as well. PIF is coming up, is this cruise not full?

I have been in MASSIVE fish extender groups, where they broke them up into several groups of 25 cabins. That was a bit overwhelming. This is by far the smallest, but that is OK, we seem to have about 9 cabins so far I think? I am missing info on some people but I wont start really nagging hard for a few months. I think business will pick up once PIF passes and discount rates go out.

The irony is the first person who joined is right next door to us, literally the next cabin. I think it might be hard core dis'ers tend to pick the cheap cruise dates, and this was not one of them. I had to pick this date due to DW's work schedule for the summer, I would have rather cruised the first week in June, but a Disney cruise is a Disney cruise, and it will be awesome!

The first and only FE I'm participating in is Aug 30th. I wasn't going to do that one, but they put my name down. Good thing I like them. The Halloween cruise is huge with a huge FE. That seems so overwhelming. I think I go away too often and I'm not creative enough to do these crafty things. But I'll try one and see how it goes.

The first week of June was really inexpensive as well. There are a lot of cabins left so those will most likely have a VGT rate. You booked so early I'm sure you have an amazing rate. You are right though, any Disney Cruise is better than no Disney Cruise. Lol

Hello! Just found this site today and also joined the Facebook group. We'd love to do the Fish Extenders (first time cruising with Disney, first time Fish Extender experience).

Al (male)
Shannon (female)
Mikayla (female, 7 y.o.)
Cabin #7510
No food allergies

Looking forward to finding some fun ideas for the fish extenders, and hearing anything that would be helpful for our first Disney Cruise.

Does anyone in the FE Group have food allergies? I am still thinking of our gifts and want to make sure I don't give something that someone can't have.
I can't wait for the cruise, we so need the vacation.

Hi, everyone! We have been booked on this cruise for quite a while, but it just dawned on me to search DISboards for a group! We are very excited about the trip. It will be my family of four, as well as my parents. We all live in Texas, and this will be our first Disney cruise and our first trip to Alaska.

We would love to participate in FE! I think my kids would flip out for it! I just sent a request to the FB group.

Our group will be:
Suzanna (me)
Matt (DH)
DS (8 y.o.)
DD (5 y. o)
My mom
My dad

We don't have any allergies. Looking forward to meeting everyone!
