Welcome! You need to let me know room number, names, ages and gender and I add you to the list.

Just do a search here or on facebook and you will find everything you need to know about FEs.

Here is a snippit taken from a FB page:
What is an FE?

An FE is a "fish extender" - something with pockets that has been created by you (or purchased online) that holds your FE gifts! The reason it's called an FE is because it hangs from the fish outside your stateroom door:

This fish is used by DCL to deliver messages and such to your room (like your Palo "invite", etc, etc.)

Diser's have been hanging FE's to the fish in order to exchange gifts with people who sign up to participate for many years. It's ALL ABOUT HAVING FUN and the spirit of giving!

Helpful links are below:
How to make your own FE:

There are also directions on how to make a no-sew FE:

Hi Amy, welcome! I have been on one Disney cruise before but this will be my first FE (fish extender) as well so there is a learning curve but it has been really fun so far. My name is Heather and I am traveling with my husband and two girls ages 8 and 3.

Isn't it a great feeling to be paid off? My DD, Aunt and I have decided only to do an excursion in Grand Cayman (the Seven Mile Beach Break), and at the other ports we will just get off of the ship and do some shopping and then get back on and explore the ship. I have never done the mixology or tastings, but I have read on other threads here on the DisBoards that you don't prebook, but you need to go to Guest Services the day we board and register for them.

And my countdown now says 107!!!! One more day down!!

Yay for the Friday Countdown... getting there for sure!

We switched to late Dining today. We dined early last time on DCL, and have had early several times on other lines. Thought we would try something different. We have sailed on several other lines/ships with anytime dining, and found that we typically ate closer to the later time than earlier. I guess we will see!

We are just the opposite. We switched to early dining recently because my Aunt who is cruising with us prefers to eat early for medical reasons. Had to be put on the waiting list but the last time I checked my reservation, it showed we had been switched to early dining. On our 2 previous cruises, we dined at the late dining time. Will just need to get used to going to the shows before dinner instead of after.

We did late dining for the first time last cruise (sans children) and found that we liked it better. So we have late dining this trip also. I find that early dining worked great when the kids were little, but now that they are older, we don't have to worry about rushing to be ready for dinner.

Oh and yay on the countdown....we are getting closer for sure!

We prefer late dining as well. Early dining always makes the day feel so rushed. I so dislike coming back from the port and feeling like I've got 45 minutes to get everyone showered and down to dinner.
