Funny part is that we have an US section in our grocery store!

I went to Target yesterday and saw a TON of things that could be used for FE gifts....some Halloween themed but still would be fun combined with Disney characters. Lots of packs with individually packaged items like crayons, pens, snacks.

In the US section there is Mountain Dew and Vanilla Coke, Cherry Coke and Pepsi Twist. And there are Dr Pepper. We don't have those sodas elsewhere!
There are beef jerky, sweet popcorn, pop tarts (only a few times :-( ) and a lot of different hot sauces and salad dressins.
You can often find som "strange" candy such as reeses cups and skittles. For us the most strange thing must be flavour to put on popcorn like cheddar, garlic, chocolate and caramel.
The kids always want to check the shelves, but the prices are insane. A can of Vanilla Coke is 2 dollars. You can get more than a full size bottle for that 2liter.

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.
Hmm...This is something that would go well with what we have planned, and is well within my resources.

You already inspired something with a magnet that sticks to the wall, and a little "springy" coil like you might find on a keychain attaching to the card. But the exact shape, size and material of the card puzzle me.

Would a laminated business card work? Or does it have to be something like a credit card with the mag strip?

Hi
On my first cruise last March I went with a nautical/pirate theme rather than Disney. I made each cabin a set of nautical flag alphabet magnets so they could write messages in flags on their doors. I also gave out flashing pirate glide balls, pirate tattoos, and little Dover coloring books. The Dover little activity books are great and not expensive.

This year I may go w St Patricks Day, or Mexico, or sealift/reef themed gifts.

The most amazing gift we received was a pillowcase with my daughter's name and favorite Disney character embroidered on it. I mean, wow! That one really humbled me.

I think that you mean the actual FE! You could use whatever you want. You could take a plastic bag, or a reusable bag and make it personal with some markers. You can have someone make you one, they sell many amazing one that are really personlized on Etsy (look for gradysmom) . Or you can have whatever you can think of, many like something with a pouch for everyone in the stateroom. I have gotten a kind of organizer with 3 pouches that I will mark with our names and some caracters, one each for DSs and me and DH shares one.
Google for some images or look at some threads here on DIS and you will get many ideas!

Cruise Survival Kit (for FE gift)

I wanted to share one of the items I have just created for our upcoming cruise FE. I am not very crafty, so I created a "survival kit". It includes two mickey mouse bandaids, two small Neosporin packets, some rubber bands, some post it notes, a highlighter, some safety pins and some WetOne Wipes. I also created a little poem that is VERY dumb and doesn't rhyme.... but I'll post it after the pictures...





Fantasy SuperBowl Cruisers Suvivor Kit

We know this gift is boring, but oh so practical,
Perhaps you won’t have to use it, but we hope it’s so helpful.

Mickey Bandaids to help boo-boos, if you happen to fall down,
And antibiotic cream too, so you don’t have a frown.
*
Sanitizer Wipes for your hands, for when they get icky,
Safety Pins and Rubber Bands, if your situation gets sticky.

The Post-it notes’ for messages to leave your family,
And the highlighter is for you to Navigate a fun activity.
*
Pardon our horrendous poetry, and our really bad rhymes,
But on this cruise we know that all will have Fantastic times.

Right now, Yankee candle has their semi annual sale going one. Some of the car air fresheners are included in the 75% off making 3 packs $1.50. These are great for the bathrooms on the cruise! I'm not participating in our group exchange but would have bought up a bunch of the "clean cotton" to give out if I was. It is a nice fresh smell and great for a bathroom :-) and at .50 each, a great price!
