Just booked

Hello - just booked our room
Been catching up on your thread.
Can you define FE? I assume it is an inexpensive gift to trade with those that want to participate?

We had kid dismeets and pictures, we had adult dismeets and drinks, we had group dismeets. Some of them linked their dining ressies together as well. It was so nice to hang out at the clubs for a while with a few adults that you sort of knew. It was nice to see familiar faces around and feel like you weren't completely with strangers.

Welcome! The FE exchange is explained a little above.

Yes it is. FE stands for Fish Extender which is a little fish clip of sorts that is next to your door where the ship can leave invites or messages. People on the disboards have taken that a step further and made all sorts of fish extenders to hang from there that small token gifts could be left from other Dis'ers.

When we participated before, we got all kinds of things from candy and gum (which you have to pay for on the ships...actually not at all sure you can buy gum) to CDs of Disney music and homemade mini scrapbooks. Some people do things that are from their city/state/country and others do pirate or Disney theme. Ours was one per stateroom gifts but I have seen that others go all out and do one separate for the kids and teens.

Here is a picture of my bags all lined up and filled and ready to be delivered. I have to say it was so exciting to go back to the room and find some little bag/package waiting.



And here is a picture of our door and the fish... I just used a YOU GO GHOUL Halloween bag to mark the season. The lime green worked well.

You are added to the first page.
I thought when we did it that the kids would get the most enjoyment out of it until it began. I really loved getting things such as candies and specialities of other countries and states. It was very fun. I think your girls will love it too.

Today I am off to find some great pictures of the grand ship we are going to board!

Pirate Night!!

Ok... Pirate night, how many of you will be dressing up?

Do you have any costume ideas?

Lets see some pictures of what you have in mind....

We did this on our last one.

Pirate Night

2 October's ago (1.5 years) we went to MK for MNSSHP
On the day of our tickets, we had appt. at the Pirate Boutique, next to PoC.
We brought pirate costumes and wore them all day.
The funny thing is, my husband bought a Capt. Jack hat with dreadlocks.
I'm not saying that he looks like Johnny Depp (darn!) but because we were in costume & make-up standing in front of PoC, there were guests that thought he was with MK, in character. Kids were coming up to him, and people were taking pictures from the distance. It was hilarious. You would think the fact that he was carrying a camera himself would give them a clue.
Anyway - we've got full pirate costumes. My older daughter will probably have out grown hers. I'll have to post a picture of us in costume.

How fun! Sallyskellington is my future DIL and she is in college for costuming so I am sure that she will do us up nicely. I love that part of the cruise, and I loved MNSSHP. Looking forward to your picture.

Holy CRAP!!! In college for Costuming??? That's a thing? I'm in LOVE!!!
Every year we attend a costume party and WIN no matter what the theme is for the year. But it takes me so long to get everything just right and even then I fail to get all the details that I want to have.

Sally - Are you ever interested in some side work? Because I would be HAPPY to pay someone to get it right for me!

DVC Member info

So far this is what I have found:

If you're a DVC member, in addition to the free drinks and freebies for showing up at the presentation, you also get a free gift box in your room including a DVC lanyard and pin. If you wear something with DVC on it throughout the cruise, you will often get another free pin or two at random. Three DVC seminars so far and we haven't won the OBC.

I have seen the OBC being random amounts between $200-$500.
