Is there a forum about them here?
Welcome! There was a thread about Wave Phones, but my laptop is acting up, and won't let me search for it. If I remember correctly, people were saying that there is no case on the market that fits, but people had used small cross-body or fanny pack type bags for them, and that worked. I have a small Vera Bradley type hipster that I plan on using. This will be my first Disney cruise, so I won't know for sure if it fits, but it fits my Kindle, so I would imagine it is fine. My DD will think it is cool...not as sure what to do with DS, and he is the one that would have the 2nd handset most of the time.

Wave phones are in your stateroom and are free for your use while on the ship. This way you can text and keep in touch with your family/friends since your cell phones will not work unless you are Scrooge McDuck! The roaming charges are off the charts so turn off your wifi and grab a wave phone if you need to ping someone.

However if you damage the phone, lose it or get it wet, you pay for it. I believe the cost is $250 which is why people are getting pouches/man-bags, etc. to carry them in.

The wave phones are GREAT. Of course I couldn't figure it all out until the last day of the cruise. One of our FE friends made us a pouch to put ours in and it also had a pocket for our room key. I thought about making some for my FE friends on this cruise...does anyone object????? lol I will also send some measurements of the ones that she made; just in case those don't wish to be on the FE list. It was GREAT! We clipped ours to our lanyard.
Can't wait! I just made reservations to eat at Cinderella's Castle when we get back! I'm so excited... I think I'm going to keep it a surprise from my daughter! We will see....Christmas and her birthday will look awful bear if I don't tell her before...

Oh a wave phone pouch would be AWESOME!!! I was looking at some on Ebay and Etsy, but was afraid to buy it without seeing it in person.

Your daughter will be so excited to eat in the castle. If you need to tell her ahead of time, maybe do it on Christmas or her birthday, so she better understands that it is part of the gift.

I am getting so excited! 5 months and counting....

Me too...I can't wait! I LOVE to travel!

For those who wanted the pouch measurements for the wave phone are 4 3/8 x 3 1/4...that is the pouch that carries the phone. The whole measurement with the flap is 9 3/4. This is the FINISHED product. 3 1/2 x 3 1/4 is the pocket measurement on the front to put your room key in. This was a great FE gift.

Congrats and welcome!

You exchange gifts by dropping off your gifts in other family's Fish Extenders during your own time on the cruise. In turn, everyone else participating will drop off goodies in YOUR FE holder (hung on the fish outside your room of course). It's TONS of fun because almost every time you come back to your cabin, there is usually something waiting for you in your Fish Extender

We have a Fish Extender list on the FB group: http://www.facebook.com/groups/MickeyCruise/

We're debating when the cutoff date is. So far New Years is the one on the table

This will be our first family vacation! We are staying at Disney the night before the cruise and for two nights afterwards. We are going to MK for one day. We are all very excited, especially my two daughters!
