Yes, I have been on the homemade FE thread. There are some awesome ideas there. That is where I have been picking from and hoping that not everyone is doing the same...

Megan turned 6 in March and Lexi just turned 8 in July. I saw that you have a daughter their age! I think that there are two more girls 7 & 8 yrs old.

I will have to get a Passporter book to see about the walking tour. That sounds interesting. We are buying AP's about a month before the cruise, so we are trying to keep cost down. Originally we had planned on AP's end of Dec. and a cruise in June, but with the Kids eat free deal, we booked earlier.

It sounds like you and I could be dangerous if we ever shopped together

I think that I am going to try to make one. Then I will probably have to buy one I am pretty crafty for school and the Girl Scout troop, but my sewing is really bad. I have the directions for a no sew one, so I will see how that goes.

Of course I was at Michaels today and completly forgot to look at the fabric. I guess I picked up enough other stuff to make up for it.

I think by the time I bought the supplies, messed up a couple of times, and finally decided to buy one, it would be way more expensive than just buying it on ebay right up front. So I've already been on there this morning and will probably order one this week. I can be crafty when I need to be, but I just don't know if I have it in me to make an FE.

Ally might be the 8 year old that I was thinking about. I believe someone else posted that their 7 year old granddaughter will be there too. That makes it a little easier to decide on FE gifts. I can just pick out things that my girls would like.

We're going to do the dolphin encounter. Can anyone tell me how to get the cruise clock onto this site? I did find the site to create them at.

I started to tell you how I got mine but I soon realized I don't know how I got mine... I just "moused around" till I got it . If I tried to explain, it would not sound very intelligable. I'm not very handy with a computer. I subscribed to this thread but I don't know what that means or where to find the subscription now Good luck

I'll have to check out E-bays FE's , are they a reasonable price. I also have not bought fabric in a long time , It might not be that much of a difference in price once you add it all up. Does anyone know if theres going to be any new Disney movies coming out before we cruise? I've heard that they also show movies before they premier? My gosh I have so many questions For dress up night I was planning on getting Rogan and Evalie new princess costumes to wear. Is anyone else doing that? We were just in the Disney store this weekend and saw the most beautyful Snow White costume...It was $150.00 .DARN!

The FE's on ebay are $20-30.....

Not so sure Ally will want to dress as a princess anymore - after 8 is SOOO grownup! But she might be into a pirate costume.....

Formal Night

I bought my granddaughter a snow white dress in WDW last May so she will wear that on formal night. How do you subscribe to this thread? I just go to the boards and find it.

You should be able to go to usercp now that you have posted, and it will pop up!

Hey FE Participants - I will send out a preliminary list with the names of the adults and the names and ages of the kiddos - that way you can personalize your gifts if you want to.

I made our FE for our last cruise, using the no-sew directions - it came out really cute. I used white for the base, then added pockets in red with white polka dots for the girls and black with white polka dots for DH - then accented with white ribbon with red polka dots. I just wrote our names on each pocket. I need to make a new one for this cruise since my older DD is coming along and she stayed home when we cruised in May.

I'm hoping to find some great sales on Halloween stuff to use for my goodie bags - I have my eye on the party favors at Walmart - Oriental Trading is also a great place to get things.

Welcome to all our new cruisers!!!!!

Right now we have 26 participants in 7 cabins signed up for our FE exchange - this is going to be so much fun. My DD's are already working on our gifts - they are both excited.

Is anyone planning on an excursion while at Nassau? We are thinking of doing the Atlantis resort????

Tammy
Right now I have a room at CS booked, it gives full access to Atlantis for a fraction of the cost. I don't know if we'll keep it or not.

I made one for our last cruise. I swore I would NEVER make one again LOL I don't have a sewing machine so it was all by hand. This time i'll either use the same one or buy one off Ebay. I love some of the hand made ones on there. o[FONT="Comic

On the countdowns, some are clickable, so if you click on someones in thier siggy, it'll take you directly to the site to make one. Some of the websites right on the tickers. Make your ticker, then go into User CP at the top of Disboards, go into your siggy and copy/paste the ticker code into your siggy.
