We're on this cruise too! DH and I just completed our 10th cruise 9/1/12 to celebrate our 20th anniversary, so now were platinum. DD & DS 15 yo twins will be on their 8th DCL. We're traveling with extended family. DMIL, this is her 2nd cruise. DSIL, and her kids, 18yo girl, 16yo boy, 10yo girl. It's their first cruise. We're doing 4 days at US before the cruise. DSIL has had a rough year, so we're treating her family to this much needed vacation.

We will be going on our first Disney cruise on 6/23/13 also! We are celebrating my mother's retirement from teaching. It is myself, dh, son (11) and daughter (8). My brother, his girlfriend, and his two boys (12 and 9) are going with us. My sister and her husband are coming along and my mother-in-law. This is a first Disney cruise for all of us! My family is spending the whole week before the cruise at Disney World! I know when I get closer I will have lots of questions for cruisers that have gone before. My family is counting on me to plan this trip!

First Disney Cruise!!

We will also be on our first Disney cruise 6/23/2013, and are completely psyched! We are totally mad Disney fans being Floridians and total nerds. We were even married at WDW!! We will be bringing my 15 year-old niece, retro swimsuits and too many pairs of shoes. Disney Dream bound, fellow Dreamers!!

Second half of our first B2B cruise

Hello all! This cruise will be the second half of our first back-to-back cruise. It will be my DH Buddy, Myself (Tracy), DD Kaylee age 9, and DD Emily age 7. On our previous Disney cruises our kids started emailing and calling other children that will be on the cruise so that when they get onboard they already have friends. Any parents that would like to let their kids participate, please PM me. We have also done fish extenders in the past and enjoyed the surprises and making the gifts! Looking forward to having fun with everyone!

My family participated in fish extenders on our last Disney cruise, and it added so many fun memories to our vacation. If there's going to be a fish extender group on this sailing, we're totally in!

If you search "Fish Extenders" on the disboards, there's some detailed info. I saw this post on another thread and thought it was a nice summary:

"Fish Extenders are a fun activity for the entire family to participate in while on your Disney cruise. Each participating family makes or buys a FE to hang outside your stateroom door. Each FE has at least one pocket for gifts to be left in, most have multiple pockets, one for each member of the family. Either one is perfectly acceptable. There are tons of pictures available online for you to get ideas. Also if you would prefer to buy your FE check out sites like ETSY and ebay. As for the gifts that are put in your FE they are either handmade or purchased. Don't break the bank with the gifts it is the thought that counts. Gifts can be anything you can think of, candy, pencils, magnets, etc. The gifts can be personalized to each individual or family in a stateroom or generic. You can gift as many times as you would like to on the cruise or just once, there is no set of rules."

Thanks for the information. After posting my message I did some research and ound out what fish extenders were. I think they're cool and would be a lot of fun so count me and my family in too. Applefans- do you have kids that will be on the cruise with you?

My DH and I have DD11, DD8, and DD3. Our older girls still talk about the fun late-night runs we made to deliver the FE gifts on our last cruise.

I have read alot of information about the FE this afternoon and it does sound like a lot of fun. If your girls would be interested in corresponding my 6 yr old please let me know. We actually have not told her about the cruise just yet but will be doing so soon. We're just trying to figure out the best way to do it. We will also be celebrating her 7th birthday while on the cruise as her birthday is the 22nd of june.

For those interested in the FE gift exchange who wants to be the moderator? I've participated but never moderated before. Our last DCL cruise in December had somewhere near 65 cabins. We split them up into groups of 20 with the last 5 cabins being a late joining crew. (new to the DISboards and signing up after the official closing of the group)
I've done FEs on each of my prior cruises and they are fun.
