We'll be joining you!

Hello all!

My family will be cruising with all of you in December! We will be joined by two other families. In total there will be six adults and seven kids (ages 1 - 8). We are so excited!!

We are new to Disney cruising (I have never been on a cruise at all), so I was very happy to find this forum! I am actually also pretty new to internet forums in general, so please forgive my lack of acronyms.

I really love this fish extender idea! Can someone give me a little overview of how it works? Should my husband and I participate also, or just our three kids? What types of gifts do people usually give? Do we bring something for everyone on the list, or is it divided up somehow?

Thanks so much!

Welcome welcome! We dont talk too much on this board. We talk a lot on the Facebook page which I believe is on page 17.

Anyone can participate in the FE exchange! We have couples that dont have kids participate and we have single parents with kids that do and there are couples with kids that dont so it is totally up to you as to if you want to participate or not :D But it is fun to do. It was a highlight of an already wonderful vacation for my daughter.

You can give what you want to. Some people give coloring books and crayons while others get pretty elaborate and get personalized stuff with the cruise dates. Basically, stick with your personality and it will be just dandy!

On the gifts, you can do either one gift for the family or give things to just the kids or something for everyone. There really isnt any rules associated with it except the cut off date is in 10 days so everyone can get their gifts ordered if need be.

Let me know if you have problems with getting to facebook! I love getting to know everyone before the trip! What are the ages of your kids?

Also, are you going to the parks before the cruise?

Jen

Welcome Chuck! My DD is 11. Maybe they will hit it off! We live in Nashville and have never made it up that far.....yet! I do plan on traveling more but Disney always captures our attention when we think about vacationing LOL It will be my mom, me and my daughter going on the cruise. I am so excited that we are going on Fantasy's first Christmas! Are you guys doing the parks any?

Found this on a thread on the DIS and posted on Facebook but thought I would post here. I am going to make a copy and take on the cruise.

Mind you this is on the Dream but I would think it would be the same on the fantasy. They are the laundry room locations.

These are the locations on the DREAM:
deck 2 (opposite 2002),
deck 5 (opposite 5192),
deck 6 (opposite 6508),
deck 7 (opposite 7014),
deck 8 (opposite 8150),
deck 9 (opposite 9500) and
deck 10 (opposite 10572

It took me a minute to figure out what these locations were so I checked the Facebook thread - for those who aren't on Facebook, I should clarify, that these are the reported locations of the Laundry Rooms on the Dream (and likely the Fantasy). Thanks for looking into those for us!
