FE Exchange?

This is our first cruise so I am not sure what a FE is?

This is my families first Disney Cruise and I have been doing a lot of reading on the FE Exchange. It sounds like a lot of fun and I would really like to see one on our cruise. There is a "fish" or other hook outside each stateroom and people started making "Fish Extenders" to hang from the hook. Some have 2,3 or more pockets. Disers exchange little gifts with other Disers who are on the same cruise.

I hope I'm explaining this well. I purchased my Fish Extender from someone at ETSY, however, some people make their own or find them on eBay.

There is a thread that also has pictures of FE gifts that have been handmade or purchased.

I don't want to give away my gift but I'm going both. Something handmade and something purchased.

I'm going to start a thread and if anyone would like to join please sign up.

For others who are new (like me) I have read that you don't have to feel obligated to meet others or "hang out". It's just something fun to add to your cruise. You just drop of your gift during the cruise in the FE outside the stateroom door. Also, it's up to you how many you want to do and when you want to give them.

Hope this helps. I'm sure there are others who know more and they might be able to post more information.

Can't wait for our trip. My family is really excited!!!

Allison

Seahorses and starfish besides fish on the dream. I had a great time doing the FE on the last cruise I took. We had lots of people and the kids loved it. I really wish it was November. Now!!!

I've been asked that we keep the FE exchange on this board and not as a separate thread. I'll move the information from the FE thread over here tonight.

I like to plan and be prepared so I hope it's ok with everyone that we start seeing who is interested now.

This also helps me pass the time until the trip!!

Count us in on the FE! Just a note...not sure if this has been resolved, but we were on the Maiden voyage and the concierge staterooms were not available to us to deliver FE gifts. It may have been resolved by now but I'm not sure...

Just posting to see what everyone is doing to help pass the time away. We have a lot of summer plans and VBS starts Monday. After VBS we are going to the beach for a week (I have to attend a Pharmacy convention). I know time is precious and you shouldn't wish your life away but I do wish November would hurry up and get here. I've been working on my door magnets and FE Gifts but I don't really have anyone to "talk" too. We aren't telling our DS about the trip because we want it to be a surprise so I have to make sure I don't say anything about it in front of him.

Anyway, I was just checking in.

Hi Allison,

We are excited about the cruise too. We were just talking about it during dinner. I don't want to wish away the summer either, plus Ihave so much work to between now and then it scares me. PLUS I want to lose some weight. We're wondering about whether to get off the boat in Nassau, and whether we should try to get a cabana. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!!!!!

Meg

Hi Meg,

I can relate to the weight thing. I have been working on that too but today is my Birthday so I did have cake. We really want to get a cabana for Castaway Cay but this is our first Disney Cruise and I know that means we have to wait until last to book all the extras.

My Sister just got back from a Carnival Cruise and she went to Nassau. Since it was just her and another girl friend they didn't go far from the ship. My DH and I have been to Nassau but that was in 1995 so I don't remember very much. I wanted to take my DS to swim with the Dolphins but my DH wants to take him to the Pirate Museum and then back on ship. I guess we have a few months to work that one out.

Hope you will join the FE. It's great that others are just as excited as we are.

Hugs
Allison
