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!!
Why would you send a box?

Hi ...I'm having to send 2 boxes for all of my FE gifts. My dh doesn't want to check any more bags than we have too, and my gifts are big enough that I don't want to carry them on either. I've read where some folks send them on ahead, and I already have the 12x12x12 boxes, so I'll probably send 'Mickey' (my FE) on ahead also!

I've read where people have also shipped their snorkels/fins/gear on ahead also. Guess there's lots to ship if you don't want to carry/check it at the airport! Hope this answers your questions!

Yes...lol! I actually have 3 rooms, so I'm good! It's also my inlaws 50th Anniversary, and I'd like to ship down some 'little surprises' for their celebration too! And Hopefully, I won't have to use the 3rd room for a box too! But thanks for the reminder!

I have been looking through the numerous fish extender posts and googling wall organzers, fish extenders... blah blah blah blah blah

I finally found something that looks like it was useful

Hope this link works, but I found a you tube video of a lady making a wall hanging for coupons, but the concept will def. work for a fish extender. I was going to break down and buy one, but now I am kind of excited about actually making one again (more special, I think). Can't wait to go the craft store now

If you look somewhere on the info thread I think there is a link to the directions on here, no sew or you can adapt it for sewing.

Although this will be my 2nd DCL, I have never heard of the Fish Extender idea before. So after spending all day reading up on everything, I just ordered my first FE for my upcoming January trip! I am so excited! Me and my mom spent a lot of time getting everything customized just right, and I think it is going to turn out great!

Just remember your pockets will need to have a 'pleat' in them so people can get the gifts inside...the pockets in that demo are flat and would only hold flat pieces of paper!

Hmmm... didn't think about that... I figured if the pockets were big enough it would hold whatever...

now I have to figure out to make "pleats"

fish extender question

Is the fish hook already on the wall? Or do we bring one of those also?

The Fish on the wall is for Disney Mail. The FE uses a rope or string to hang over this fish. The FE then hangs below the fish. I'm sure there are pictures showing this somewhere here.

Aww...thank you SO much! I will admit, we were quite concerned it'd come across 'too homemade' or 'hokey'...but we do alot of designing and decorating and she loved the challenge! Great fun! I'm sure a seamstress will know how to make it better, but for our first, and our first cruise, we're excited! Thanks again!

I have seen a few pictures with seahorses instead of fish. Are those on the dream? When I was on the magic all I saw were fish.
