I'd highly recommend it for your family. A 10-passenger chauffeured minivan is $322 round trip, plus tips. A lot more convenient than the disney bus.
looks like im going to be calling happy limo.

This will be our family's third cruise but I just learned about the FE. Is there enough interest. We are interested if there is!

We typically stay at the Residence Inn in Cape Canaveral. It is an easy 10 minute drive to the cruise terminal. There are also a couple of other hotels in the same area.

While you are waiting that night, you can always hit Ron Jon surf shop about 10 minutes south of the hotel.

FEs ARE GREAT FUN AND ONLY DONE ON DISNEY SHIPS. YOU HANG YOUR FISH EXTENDER (FE) ON THE FISH BY YOUR DOOR. YOU HAVE A POCKET FOR EACH PERSON IN THE CABIN. ITS LIKE A CHRISTMAS STOCKING. EVERY CABIN PARTICIPATING GETS A LIST OF NAMES AND CABINS WHO JOINED UP. YOU EITHER BUY OR MAKE A LITTLE SOMETHING FOR EACH PERSON. WHEN YOU ARE ON THE CRUISE SOMETIME DURING THE CRUISE YOU GO AROUND AND PUT THE GIFT IN THE PERSONS FE. IF YOU HAVE 20 CABINS INVOLVED EACH PERSON WILL GET 20 INEXPENSIVE GIFTS. IF YOU GO ON THE THREAD THAT DEALS WITH FE GIFTS YOU WILL SEE I THINK WHAT SOME PEOPLE GAVE OR GOT. FOR EXAMPLE LAURA AND I ARE FROM CANADA. SO I BRING SOMETHING RELATING TO WHERE WE ARE FROM. WE HAVE RECEIVED TEXAS CHOCOLATE BARS FROM PEOPLE FROM TEXAS. WE HAD PEOPLE FROM MARYLAND BRING RECIPE AND INGREDIANTS FOR CRAB CAKES. SOMEONE MADE US CLOTH HANDLES FOR OUR LUGGAGE TO IDENTIFY OUR BAGS ETC ETC.


THATS OUR DOOR AND FE.

there are 7 in our group. Also im trying to get a hold of a few others who are booked on this cruise who dont know what a fe is. Its not to late to run one. Also if enough people want to and its close to christmas you can run a secret santa. We did that last dec. We had about 10 in that secret santa
