One of the things I included was a business card with a Mickey & Minnie image on the front, "Enjoy your cruise from the XX family" and a tip chart on the back.

WISH you were on MY cruise cuz I would absolutely FLIP over that!! LOL!!

I just got off the Fantasy on Saturday and if someone would create a card with a small magnet on the top to fit in the device you are supposed to put your KTTW card in to make the lights work, would be wonderful! I HATED having to take out my key from the lanyard! If a small card had a magnet on it, we could have stuck it to the back of the door when we were in the room and taken it out and stuck it to the bathroom door when we left the room.

Just a thought.

On another thread, DISers are stating any type of hotel room key or even business cards. Have yet to try as I sail next month. I am taking an old RCCL card to use.

I have a stack of used Disney Gift Cards. They have the magnetic strip. I would think they would work too. Embellish them a bit if you want and distribute as FE gifts... not a bad idea.

That IS a really good idea for the used Disney Gift cards! We use them all the time and you could easily embelish/personalize them.

Now, I just wish the Magic and Wonder would upgrade to the new door locks too!

Laundry Bags

Not sure if this idea has been posted before. I saw brightly colored laundry bags in our local dollar store for only $2. You could put a heat transfer of your meet group's logo on the bag.

I think that is a GREAT idea. I don't scrpbook (just don't have time) but that would make it fast and easy to do. (and I would do a few pages) I would also print a few photos to frame with the borders. If you have the ability to do that it would be an awesome FE gift!!! I have bought the photopass CD in the past to get the borders, but it is soooo expensive. I'm sure what you would do would be even better, as it would be customised to your specific cruise.

My daughter and I live in Japan, so I was thinking of buying Japanese snacks and candies to bring for one of our FE gifts.

Great idea!
We live in Sweden, so I'm thinking the same but Swedish candy and perhaps some simple Swedish food. More people should try the Swedish salty candy liqourich (sp?)

I would love to get those! I discovered salty licorice a few years ago and now I look for it as an occasional treat in the European section of a grocery store.
