Hello and Have a Great Trip!

We had to more our cruise. Wishing you a great time!

Also, just scaned the last few posts and there was a quetion on the photo packages. I would like to mention you should do a search on the main board as the packages are a hot topic and did change recently. You an also prebuy photo credits on the disneycruise.com site as a pre-sailing gift, but to yourself. It used to be there were certain packages available there that are different than onboard, but I'm guessing you can find a recent post from someone that details all the current pricing.

Hi everyone!! I just booked this cruise over the weekend (couldn't resist those Fl resident rates!). The whole family (me, dh, ds12, dd10 and ds8) is so excited.

My friend and her dh & son have booked the cabin beside us. Can't get here soon enough!

No, we haven't started an FE. I don't do them. If there's any interest, feel free to start one.

FL rate? How did you get that? The only ones I'm seeing are for September.

FE stands for Fish Extender and/or Fish Exchange. On the classic ships all the staterooms have those silver fish on the wall next to the door. DCL uses it to deliver letters to you. On the new ships there are other sea creatures besides the fish. People on cruise meet threads organize little gift exchages and put these gifts in the fish extenders. Some people make the FE, while others buy them online. I have never participated in this myself.
Here's a picture of one.

Thank you for posting about the FL rate! I didn't know anything about it, so I started doing some research.
My TA just called me and said he put us in a 5A forward. I didn't really want to be forward and I knew we'd lose some space inside the room (we had an 8B), so I asked him about the 4D's I saw for the same rate. He tried to talk me out of it because it was GTY, but I said I was ok with that.

So, we got the same size cabin plus a verandah (never had one before) and saved $648.

AWESOME!! We have a 4D verandah cabin too (only option the FL rates gave a family of 5). We booked 2 yrs ago with a great rate for residents but this one is about $500 cheaper than we paid then!

You can search the forums here for lots of FE information and there is an FE or Fish Extender facebook page you can search for that shows examples of gifts.

It is fun to participate. My kids have already starting asking me about the 'door pocket thingy' as they call it!
