Just thought to post that if anyone joining the thread late wants to coordinate their own FE exchange they are welcome to do so. Also wanted to share what we did for the kids before the FEs even started. I read about Tink gifts on the boards. I talked to the host the first afternoon and we worked out that I would put the gifts in a bag and hang it on the hook outside the bathroom door when we left for dinner. When the host prepared the room for the night, they took the things out of the bag and incorporated them into the towel animal on the bed. I picked up things on clearance at Target & Disneystore.com like Pooh markers, Mickey & princess pens, special trading pins, and small stuffed characters. The first night was a pair of PJ pals for each of the kids. The kids learned the routine quickly even at 3 & 5. That made it much easier to get them to go to the room after the show & a little wandering around the ship without a battle because they wanted to see what Tink had left them.

Hi Lisa, was just wondering if the name can be changed from my mum Beatrice to Jackie on the FE/ cruiser list. There's still 3 females, so just the gifts hopefully don't need to be changed.

Done. I took care of it on the main list before, but missed the FE list.

My sister and her family just got off the Western Fantasy this past weekend. Despite "the challenging weather" they had a great time. She even joined DVC while on board !!! So excited for her. Can't wait to sail!! My husband is starting to get really excited too.

I am a little confused. This is my first FE. Reading this post re: only 2 staterooms on the late list not included in the main. On the late group list there are 6 families which I being one of those, have prepared for. Should I have prepared for more or just the 6 families on the late comers list. Thank you. Oh, and to clarify the list is now closed and complete. Sorry if I am a little 'slow'z

Out of the six families listed on the late FE list, only two are not also on the main FE list. The person who asked is on the main list, so would only need to add two families to their list to include the late list. Yes, the lists are closed now so you can put your goodies together for the FE.

Just wanted to let the new-latecomers know that if someone puts together a list or individually you want to post or PM me your room number that you want to do the new-late comers FE exchange, I am willing to join in (I am already part of the main and late FE groups and have extra supplies!).

Also, I hope our new-latecomers are planning to come to the first day meet & greet (3 pm by the Donald pool, I believe) to meet everyone and give the kids a chance to make some new friends. I don't do Facebook, so I am looking forward to seeing everyone for the first time!

Is it just me, is there something going on with the boards, or did no one write anything the last 4 messages posted last night after 7:00 PM? I want to make sure I am not missing something that could be important.

Hello, all!

How excited we are to be going on a Disney Cruise! Our family (me-29, DW-29, DS-2) are transplants from NW Pennsylvania to NE Florida and we've caught the Disney bug! Last year, we became passholders and have enjoyed EVERY MINUTE of WDW! We renew our passes in April of this year for another year of Disney magic!

On a whim, we booked reservations for this upcoming cruise! We booked 39 days before sailing. The reservation kept disappearing from the website, and finally, we snagged it!

In the past few weeks, I've learned so much about topics I never imagined before: Fish Extenders (how I do wish we would have booked earlier to get on this list!), magnetic paper (never knew this existed, and I teach at an elementary school!), the absolute need for an embroidered pillowcase, the list goes on!

In any case, we are in room #6052. We are looking forward to meeting you all!

Congratulations on snagging a room and welcome to the group.
I started with Disneyland as a kid, tried and love WDW as an adult, got the Disney cruise bug in 2007 and am now branching out with Adventures by Disney this summer so I know exactly how you feel.
