It should definetly work for the FE. I would post a pic but I don't have enough posts yet (guess I shouldn't have lurked for so long ). Maybe I'll be able to post them soon. So the FE doesn't have to be fancy (I paid $3 for the bags; total they were $1 each and the fabric markers I got a variety color pack for $6 from WalMart) and can do it inexpensively. Just got to think outside the box sometimes. Can't wait for the cruise!

Oh that sounds so cute! Can't wait to see it.

That reminds me, I need to see if mine needs some touch up gluing.

All who are planning on Fishlips 9/11 - are you staying in Port Canaveral/Cocoa Beach the night before?
I live 1 1/2 hours south and still trying to decide to go and back, go and back; or just go and stay. [does that make sense?] :

These are the rates for our cruise

Hi Kathy, me and DH will be staying in Cocoa Beach for 2 nights before cruise. We'll be at the Fishlips meet. Hope to see you there.

Dilema

OK - I am rethinking where we are going to stay the night prior to the cruise. We are currently booked at the Courtyard in Cocoa Beach with Marriott Reward points - no breakfast and planning on parking at the port which will cost us $105.00. I can get a room at the Residence Inn for $138.00 which includes taxes, free breakfast and free cruise parking. Shuttle will be a few $ extra, but DH could drop me and DD off at the port and then go back and take the shuttle by himself. The only wrinkle in this situation is that DH is leary of leaving the car at the hotel and not at the port parking lot. Can anyone tell me how secure the parking at the hotel is? I picked Residence Inn due to Marriott points. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Second time mentioning this

I just deleted a response to the survey/data collection for the planned activies because whoever entered the information, did not complete the last part of the survey with their name, email and DIS name.

I deleted it because without this information, it is really worthless. After all, what is the point if the organizers don't know how to get in touch with the person?

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo if you are taking the time to enter the information, please include your contact information.

Are you able to tweek the survey to make those field mandatory? Or at least put a warning in big letters to that effect?
