Unfortunately, I'm one of those unlucky people that kept having FB change my privacy setting every two months... leaving my info available to anyone... I have since stopped using FB...

I have the DIS app on my iPhone, so I receive instant notifications when posts are made... Pretty cool.

On another topic... I was hoping that info regarding FE participants' favorite characters, especially for the kids, could be added to the info given for the FE list... That way gifts can be tailored a bit when possible.

My DH likes "Pirates of the Caribbean" Mickey
I like Mickey and Minnie
My DD (6) likes Rapunzel, Merida from Brave, Ariel and Cinderella

I believe we don't have to friend each other, but we could create a closed group. I will try to figure it out. I have the DIS app now on my iPad so maybe for those that don't Facebook I can check in the tread also.

Not sure how to "quote" multiple ppl on one post still don't post enough to have figured that out. I will try to create a closed group on Facebook but will also be using the DIS app maybe if it is " important" I can also post on this board. Who is organizing FE? I agrees I would like that info added.

Also do we have a "group name" if not can someone suggest one so I can use it for the Facebook group.

Lightbulb Facebook

I have set up a closed group on Facebook. As of right now it is "Secret" so I am not even sure you can search for it. I would have liked to have some fun name but I am not that creative.

Now here is the thing, I am not sure how to add people. Is there someone from this cruise that is will to PM your email or facebook email so I can see if I can add you. Feeling a bit clueless.

Maybe once I figure it out we can just make it a closed account. I want to protect our privacy as much as possible and I want to be careful about who we allow to join. I will probably be asking for DIS user name and maybe cabin number. What do you all think?

I don't think you can add people if it is "secret." I'm not sure.

For a "closed group" people can click to request to join and you can approve or deny. I think you can only add people on your own if they are FB friends of yours. They also need to have their privacy settings set to allow others to add them to groups. It's complicated. It would probably be more effective to post a link to the group here, then approve or deny requests to join.

Are you limiting the group to those from the Dis only, or will it be open to those on this cruise from other boards? Also, those not participating in the FE may not want to provide their stateroom number.

I can provide a link but I really don't want to just open it up to anyone. I want to be sure it is only people on our cruise not someone that is searching to find out who might have an empty home or varies other creepy things. maybe it is just a bad idea. Other groups have used it and loved it but now I am not sure.

Sorry so long since my last post. Boy has it been a crazy couple of months. My classes are keeping me busy. I am in the middle of two this session and then I have two left after that and I will have my BA finally. So that has been keeping me busy. I will make it a point to update the FE list by the end of next week.

Welcome to the thread. This will be our first 7 day and we are looking forward to it so much, I have always felt like I didn't get to really fully enjoy the ship.

Thanks for setting up a FB group! I just sent a request to join.

I know I'm crazy, but since this will be our first family cruise (our girls are 7 and 9), I fear that 7 nights is going to be too long. I've read umpteen threads where people say there is so much to do, but I still worry. I'm crazy, right?
