Hi! I will be on your cruise in October and would love to do it! Even if its just two of us.

I have found that the little extras, such as this, make trips more special.

Its our first DCL cruise, but with our trips to WDW, we did meet people from the boards and it was a ton of fun.

For our cruise over Christmas, there were only 5 families total in our group, and I think it worked out great. Allowed us to give some nice things without breaking the budget. And it was a nice treat to come back to goodies each day.

Can someone explain to me how the FE works if someone is cruising concierge? We have someone on our meet thread who was asking and I thought we would ask the experts. Thanks.

I'm not sure we will even have 5.

Oh yay! That's how I feel about it, too, which is why I want to do an FE so much.

We have two connecting cabins. If we did FE, would we just put up one, or would we do one for each room? What do people with two cabins usually do?

We do two room, and we only do one FE. I didn't really want to advertise a second room, and that way people only have to package up one gift.

We had this same question come up last cruise. We decided that, if you're one family, it's one FE, despite how many rooms you have. I gave a nice gift that cost about $8 and it wouldn't have been fair to have to do one for each room and get one gift in return that was something like Oriental Trading plastic stuff.

I really wanted to do this special FE gift, pretty much as I was running the meet and wanted to do something a little extra special, so it's not just me being snobby, but I also really didn't want to bankrupt myself. We had 25 in our group.

my guess is on the new ships those in Con level won't be able to participate unless they make arrangements with someone in another level to hang their fe on their fish. apparently those new gates are shut all the time and the only way you get in is with your room key - so that leaves them out since most people participating won't get into put their gifts in their fe.

FE's are hung up on the Fish decoration that is beside the door. you can either make them or buy them. there are tons of photos in this and other FE threads showing what everyone put up and what their gifts were or what they received from others.

You look for the FE thread for your cruise and tell them you'd like to sign up. most cruises have between a dozen and 2 dozen rooms participating and it usually takes a few hours to walk the ship and put all your gifts in the FE's.

the cruise i was on was the first podcast cruise and almost 3 dozen rooms signed up for the FE. it took me ages over the 4 days of the cruise. it was very fun but it was a lot of work making all my gifts and then taking them around the ship.

August 16th Alaska Cruisers, DON'T LOOK! Nothing to see here....










I found a bunch of neat, Disney-themed card games, diaries (can also be used as autograph books for the little guys) toys, and other goodies at Michael's. For the adults, I bought Disney-themed lanyards at Party City and these ID holders at the Oriental Trading Company: http://www.orientaltrading.com/ui/se...allpartial&N=0 I'm going to iron-on a DISigner's design.

FE fininshed

Thought i'd post this here... I just made my FE! I am not a very good seamstress at all, but did the best i could! Wanted to do it all on my own! Hubby didn't want names on it, so i put "mom" and "dad" on the buttons and "munchkins" on the minnie skirt. Don't have a dowel yet, but this gives you a peek!
