Our FE is a product of Hobby Lobby...We actually walked around, asked ourselves what Mickey's feet would look like, and ta da..So, our Mickey's feet are actually paper mache' eggs with wooden discs around the top painted yellow with black cording. I just hope it holds up..teehee

We looked on the FAQ thread, found out about recommended dimensions, and went to Hobby Lobby. Bought really durable backing (like canvas or denim), and then bought about 1/3 yd of each colored fabric. We made the feet out of paper mache eggs and wooden pieces. We also ironed on the lettering. The painted a dowel rod (didn't really need to though) and attached wooden beads hot glued and painted. I think she did a great job as she's very creative and talented.

And all w/o a sewing machine...

I haven't sent a box, but here is the section from the faq:

Boxes Sent the Ship Ahead of Cruise - PLEASE follow these instructions carefully!!!!!! UPDATED AS OF 2/25/2009
• ONE box per stateroom, no exceptions.
• The package must have the guest full name, ship, sailing date, stateroom number or GTY if you have not been assigned a stateroom number.
• The package also must have a packing slip attached to the outside of the box that details the contents of the package. For prescriptions, a copy of the prescription is sufficient. Your list may or may not be read but it must have one. Write packing slip on the outside of the envelope.
• NO FOODS/DRINKS OF ANY KIND, LIQUOR OF ANY KIND, FIREARMS, ETC.. Items that cannot be shipped to the Disney Cruise Line Warehouse and delivered to the ship include: food products (any and all food products including baby food/formula), beverages (liquor, water, etc.), chemicals, and luggage. These items will not be accepted at the warehouse and will be returned. This may cause the dogs to hit on your box and that would be a bad thing.
• The required size of the cartons you are shipping down have to be about the size of a record storage box 12 inches on a side and should not weigh more than 20 lbs. (This has been asked personally by Dave Adams who is the owner)

Address your package(s) to:
Disney Cruise Line Warehouse
Guest Name / Stateroom # (GTY, if you don't know what it is when you send the package)
8633 Transport Drive
Orlando, FL 32832
Phone: 407-566-8196

In the bottom left corner of the top of the package put the following information: ATTN: HOUSEKEEPING
*Name
*Sail Date
*Ship
*Stateroom Number
*Packing slip that details contents of the package (for prescriptions, a copy of the prescription is sufficient)
• Packages must arrive by Friday by 3:00pm for the 7-Night Cruise on the Disney Magic (Saturday).
• Packages must arrive by Friday by 3:00pm for the 4-Night Cruise on the Disney Wonder (Sunday).
• Packages must arrive by Wednesday by 3:00pm for the 3-Night Cruise on the Disney Wonder (Thursday).

If your box is hit on by the screening dog or chosen for additional screening they will open the list and the box and look through it. They will close it back up and provided nothing bad is in it then it will be in your room as usual later after boarding. These boxes will be coming on the ship with the crew mail among other things so they may be in the staterooms later then they were before as they are low priority in the scheme of things for Disney.

It appears they need to arrive a day or two prior to cruising, so I would check with the PO and see how long delivery should take, possibly sending it priority, definitely tracking it. HTH!!

Thanks AmandaRG!!! I had read this before but never noticed 'how' to put the list on the boxes! And I hadn't even checked with the po to see how long it'll take, so great idea! I'm glad we have 3 cabins, because I can at least put a box in two rooms! Thanks for the reminder though!

Thanks! She's pretty creative, in fact she helped me with my idea for our gifts. I can't wait to show people what we made, it was so much fun. I'll pass along the encouraging words to her though.

I would have loved to have gotten a FE with a Pooh theme, but my DD wanted us to be princes and princess'!
