Stacey, do you remember what else Jim said they cut back on? I know there was something else.

No more streamers at Sail Away. Plus he said they would be making more cuts, but trying to do them in areas where the guests won't notice.
Yeah, maybe not FIRST TIME guests, but the underestimate past cruisers!!

Less mess for them to clean up too.
With the prices of Disney cruises compared to other lines they shouldn't have to cut anything

That was my thought, too.

Let me know what you think. I don't want it to take away from posting here...just thought it might work for the kids and any main info.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! I made pancakes this morning and DS actually tried them and liked them! (i have a wierd son...LOL...I say that in a very loving, motherly way!!) SO now I can make him Mickey Pancakes! ha!

Anyways...since the holidays are now behind us....who wants to talk about a Fish Extender Exchange? I can keep up a list...but I'm not to sure what else is involved in this. Anyone with experience want to lead us in the right direction?

ETA: I've udated the cruise list. I've added GoofyGirl 27 and her grandmother to the list. I don't think she posted here yet (i got a PM from her), but they'll be on the cruise. Welcome Jenn and her grandmother Jane!!

We've got a lot of "Goofy" people cruising this time! :-)

Well, on my last cruise. these were the basic steps:

1. Decide on the "rules" - we did one drop-off for the whole cruise to each cabin and did not set a price limit. Some did more than one drop off but those were extra-generous people. Some gifts were one "thing" for the cabin, regardless of the number there, some contained one "thing" for each person.
2. Start a list of people participating. Set a cut-off date for joining in so that people know how many they'll need in enough time.
3. Include in the list the children in the group - ages and genders, in case people want to "personalize" the gifts.
4. Shop/make gifts!
5. Someone can make a map of the cruise ship with the cabins of each participant (once everyone knows them) - it REALLY makes the drop-off easier. Some people feel more comfortable PM-ing their cabin numbers to the organizer, so that their cabin number isn't posted for everyone in the world to see.
6. Bring the gifts on the ship and deliver!

Oh, and everyone will need to make/buy a fish extender of course! Haha!

Heather, since you're keeping the main cruise list, it might make sense to just add a column to that for now to indicate if people want to participate?

Thanks for all the info Amy!!

I wish I could add a column to the list...but the spread sheet is limited on there...maybe I can color code the names and add a FE next to the names of anyone who wants to participate!!!

So....Who wants to sign up for the Fish Extender Exchange??

Just post here and I'll add you to the list. If you haven't already given me the names and ages of everyone (ages for kids) post here or send me a PM. Also we'll need everyone's State Room #'s. Like Amy mentioned...if you feel more comfortable, just send me your room # in a PM (i won't post it on the cruise list on my web page).

Also I guess we should decide on the "rules". Any ideas/suggestions?

Any ideas for a cut off date to sign up?

I've got you guys signed up. I got your pm wmjivey! Thanks!

On the cruise list, everyone's names that are BLUE are in the FE exchange. I also added a *FE* at the bottome of the persons names/ages.

Does anyone have pictures of FE??
What kinda things have people left _ I have never been on a cruise that have done this.

I guess I will start keeping a list of the teens interested in taking part in the scavenger hunt so if you want you can email me with their names and age.
