It's really easy - and loads of fun!

You will need to hang something on the outside of your cabin - from the fish by the door. Hence the name "Fish Extender." Most folks have something that looks like this:



But you can use a canvas bag or stocking or anything that you desire. Some folks like to tie them with the plastic safety ties to ensure that they don't wander off. I've heard of this happening, particularly with things that are not personalized, so if you spent some $$ on it or it has sentimental value, it's something to consider.

To participate in the FE exchange, you choose one day on the cruise (or multiple days - there are no strict rules) to run around and play secret santa to everyone in your FE group - the cabins on the list. Some people make special gifts. Others bring things that represent where they are from. Some just drop in candy. Others may leave a magnet on your door (remember the cabin doors are metal and you can't put tape on them, so Disers will often decorate their cabin doors with magnets!) It's nice if you let folks know who gave them the present so they can thank you after the cruise on the boards. There are no rules as to the size, quantity, or quality of the gift. It's just fun exchanging small items with the new friends you've met on the ship! (It's also a GREAT way to figure your way around the ship if you've never been on it before!)

That's it! Pretty simple.

I'll repost the FE list adding you as a latecomer for those that have extras.

Okay everyone! We have a new FE participant, and I still haven't heard from Shellie (Mikash) to confirm that they are still on this sailing or what their cabin number is. So, if you have extras for the FE exchange, please add Terri and her family to your list!

Ok, I've added you onto my list! Did I mention that I have not yet completed ours?? But, half way there now and we will get on it after church tomorrow. As was explained, just hang something on your fish so we can put the trinkets in there.

I am surprising my DH and DS (6 year old) with this cruise. I booked it 7 months ago and it has been a long haul keeping it a surprise. They think we are going camping for a few days and should be totally surprised when Mickey Mouse calls on Monday the 25th to welcome them to the cruise. I will have the video camera ready and rolling.

Hope to meet some of you in person.

Terri
Welcome aboard!

Hi everybody,
We are first timers to DCL, hope you don't mind me dropping in ... I only just found my way to the Disboard and read about the FE. Are we too late? My kids would love it. Wanted to check in before I have my kids make an extender this week. Thanks.

Hi... what are the ages of your kids? Our DD (dear daughter) is 8, and would love to email them to let them know how much fun they will have.

We're having a get-together of everyone on this board at 3pm on departure day!

Welcome aboard!

Ben, Jenny, and Lily

I have a son who just turned 9 a few weeks ago and a daughter who is 3 1/2.

I'm not sure how to add our info to this group properly ...

I read somewhere about meeting at the Mickey pool ... I'm sure we will be the family looking totally lost (spot the newbies)! We are really looking forward to the cruise

Where did this weekend go???

We got some things together - I am totally stunned that we are a week away from flying to Seattle to get ready to take the train to Vancouver.

I think this is the longest we booked one ahead (can't remember if the PC repo was this far ahead) and it has crept up on us so fast.

This is going to be a Long, Hard work week thinking about this cruise. Looking forward to seeing old friends, and meeting as many of you as we can. Hope you all have fun with the FE - we decided not to do them this trip because I tend to go overboard (pun) and I am worried about packing heavier clothes.

Let the countdown begin in earnest!
