I plan on taking the zip tie AND threading fish line behind the ribbon I use to hang it (I'm cutting a hole in the dowel and threading it thru) so someone can't just give it a yank - well, they'll have to yank pretty hard. If it goes missing, I'm sending my kids on a hunt!

I was wondering this too. I've just discovered the whole FE & magnets thing from the Board ( fabulous ideas) but we are on Deck 5 , only 4 doors along from the Oceaneers Club.
Do you think I'm setting myself up for trouble? I don't want my youngest DD to be upset if our stuff goes?

Taking them in at night would maybe help and the zip ties would be a good deterrent.

I wonder if I can change my stateroom?

free fish extender

Or if you don't need a personalized one, I happen to have an extra. I made one to figure out the pattern and then I made a fancier one for my family. If you want it, PM me.



Probably wouldn't be hard at all to personalize it with some iron-on transfers.

Fish extenders scoop

Hi Everyone,

I loved this idea of fish extenders. Next to your door is a fish that the crew and you communicate with and it is in the shape of a fish. What we did was make a material bag or like a letter divider made out of material, we hung these bags on the fish. Now the fun part is comming up. One person volunteers to head up the fish gift exchange (basically collect the names of the person interested in this exchange and write down their room number next to their names on a piece of paper). Pick a day that everyone get together on the ship, we met at the Promanade lounge, we were a small group of 14 so that was a perfect size room. During the meeting hand out a list of names and room numbers to everyone.
Lets say if 15 people sign up they get a list of names. Now the fun part. We bought little items like fancy post it notes and a lot of dollar store items of any type from your state. Once you have the list you go around and put little gift into everyone fish extender.
On the 1-19-08 cruise, it made it interesting because you didnt know who put what in your bag but it made it a surprise. if you have children you can put down on your list how many and ages if you want. Because the kids got excited to get toys in the fish extenders. or you can make it just adult its what ever your groups decides on.
In my gift bag I got the little celophane gift bags and put a lolipop in it that NC printed on it, and I put pencils and cute note pads in the bag and delivered it to everyones fish extenders.
If you look on the Dis boards report for that cruise some of the fish extenders are pictured on their reports.
This is not something you have to do but we had a blast shopping, delivering and receiving gifts. I hope this helps a bit. Have fun

You can see my fish extender on my door from our Dec07 cruise. One of the people on the cruise (thanks Stacie!!) made them for the group of about 6 families that was interested in the exchange. She did sew them, they are made out of felt. Really cute! We each brought things to put in the bags and I think all of us brought stuff for almost every day. It was a lot of fun!

fish extender picture

The Thread with Tidefan has a picture of a fancy fish extender, they made a section for each person in their family. We made our with just one pocket and it work just fine.

The Thread with Chepic has a picture of all the participants for the fish extenders and the DIS board. After we got our list of room numbers and names we decided to take a group picture up the stairwell.

I do have one extra fish extender if anyone is interested in it just send me your name and address I will mail it to you.

When do you guys have your big day for fun and relaxation?

I know we just got done with our in Jan. but we are now planning our 3rd magic trip for Dec. 2008. Yippie

I wonder if you could glue antennae balls on the ends of the dowel to make the mickeys.

We Loved deck 5!!! The only traffic outside your stateroom is from neighbors. I wish we could have gotten a stateroom there on our next trip.

While sharing ideas for making your own fish extenders is fine, for sale posts or anything advertising any item for sale violates the DIS board guidelines.

Thank you.

Oh thanks for the reassurance. I was getting a bit worried ('*** I picked the deck and room 5018 was the only Cat 8 left)

I'll just make sure I've got a ziptie and I think I'll print "The Murray Family" on everything and see if that makes them less attractive to others...unless their surname is Murray of course.

I was wondering the same thing. I don't see why not. I have a stash of them that I picked up at the Disney Store for 50 cents each a while back. I couldn't pass them up at that price!
