We were introduced to FEs our last cruise. First, you go find the Cruise Meet thread for the cruise you will be on. There you can meet lots of folks you will be cruising with. Someone will set up the FE. It's basically a gift exchange between those who want to play. The organizer makes a list of the participants with their cabin numbers, names, ages, etc. The everyone come up with something fun for all the rest. Some people make/buy a gift for the whole cabin, many make/buy gifts for each individual in the cabin. Usually the individual poctets on the FE have names on them, so you get the Princess gifts to the little girls and "Cars" to the boys.

Sometimes the giving is random... other organizers choose to assign specific delivery days so it spreads out evenly. Last time we were assigned the last night... so we did a heading home theme. We brought mini craft projects for each kiddo that could be done in the car/plane. For the grown-ups, we put a snack in their pockets. It's just like Christmas morning evey time you wake up and sometimes when you get back from dinner

Quick and Super Cute!

For those saying they need it quick, I got mine super fast and great quality. It has bigger pockets than some of the other ones I've seen on the ships and our "treasures" all fit nicely, whereas I had some trouble delivering gifts to those with smaller, more shallow pockets. Search on ebay for Custom Fish Extender for Disney Cruises and you should find the one i mean. She has other styles available too, so just pm her if you need something custom. Happy FEing!

Newbie - Hoping to get in on the FE and Gift Exchange FUN

Hello all,

I'm a newbie and trying to get the hang of the forum. We're cruising on the Disney Fantasy on 10/20. Can someone tell me if the FE / Gift Exchange group and schedules have already been assigned? I believe I signed up our family a while ago but didn't receive a PM : (. Hoping to get in on the fun...ready to get my craft on and make some cool gifts for the families.

I would suggest going to your cruise meet thread and sending a PM to the person in charge of the FE gift exchange

how wide can it be

I have a few ideas for a fish extender.. but I think it is too wide..
I see from photos it needs to be about 8 to 10 inches wide maybe .. otherwise it might be in the way...????
Got the gifts all done!

I think it is 8 inches. Basically, there is a little wall space that is at maybe a 45 degree angle coming out from your stateroom door. It needs to fit there otherwise it will stick out into the hallway and people will bump it as they walk past. Don't want to poke anyone's eye out.

I was researching width several hours last night to answer the same question. Best I could find was don't go wider than 8". There also may be a difference in the width available on the older ships and the newer ones. I saw some comments that the Fantasy and Dream are slightly narrower in that area, but I couldn't find a confirmation one way or the other, let alone a final width.

We're making ours 8" wide, and I'm going to hope for the best.

Is it unusual for two adults to participate if they are sailing without children? I think this sounds like so much fun, but my boyfriend and I don't have kids.. we just are big kids!

On my upcoming cruise more than half the FE participants are traveling without children.

I am sure you will fit right in.

Not a holiday one, but....

I decided to make myself another, smaller FE for my solo cruise this December. It seemed silly to have a 4 pocket FE for just me and, since I am going alone, I could make this one a little more girly. I took inspiration from doombuggygrl74 (her post here) because I loved how girly the pink and leopard print was!

The Mickey head is from the DISigns board and after I printed it on iron-on transfer paper and put it on the FE, I went back with some adhesive backed rhinestones and went over the tiara part so it really sparkles.
