It is 90 degrees in Minnesota today...I know though when we leave for the cruise it will be below 0
Can not wait.
In the next few months I will put together a spreadsheet of room numbers for the fish extenders and number of people and ages in the room.
Less than six months now...

It is official!

We officially booked this cruise now! We just got back from cruising to Alaska on the Wonder! We had such a great time and now I cannot wait to go on the Dream and finally make it to Castaway Cay, even if it is in January! This cruise will be for my husband's birthday which is on the 6th, the day we embark! Anyone planning on doing an pre or post days at Disney World??? I don't remember if I said it before but we would love to be apart of the FE group as well! It will be myself, Andrea and Jeremy (DH), our room is # 9101. I look forward to getting to know you all before our cruise!

Sadly, I am going to have to ask to be removed from the FE List, I was just browsing online for prices and we changed our cruise dates to the May 18th EBTA, it was only $900 more for 14 nights as opposed to this 4 nighter, but I hope you all have a great time on the cruise!!! We are going on the dream for a 5 nighter in August so I will say Hi to the ship for you all!!

Hey - - if you do a search for "what are fish extenders" you will find tons of info. Here is the shortened version : Outside your cabin, there will be a metal fish or seahorse or starfish. It is used by the cruise line to leave papers and packets for you during the cruise. Those of us who decide to participate in the FE's for this cruise will hang out a small pocketed object (kind of looks like an over-the-door shoe holder) and they're used like Christmas stockings, if you will. Everyone involved will bring small gifts/surprises/candy bags/other inexpensive store-bought or handmade trinkets to leave in the other fish extenders.(kinda like wedding favors or stocking stuffers) There will be a complete list published (thanks, xiphoid!) before the cruise, and this will give you the total count of gifts you'll need for the cruise. Then, during the cruise, take your list and your gifts and leave them in the other fish extenders. It is so much fun coming back to your cabin and finding little gifts in your pouches!
You can buy actual fish extenders online (ebay is a nice spot). I also have made four, so my skills are getting pretty polished - - plus it's kinda nice to do a themed fish extender. Ours is themed around the movie 'UP'.
Some people give one gift to each cabin. Others will have a small gift for each person in the cabin....sometimes age-specific.....(coloring books for kids, magnets for adults, etc..)
You can also go to etsy and buy fish extender gifts or get ideas for them online as well.
My advice - - totally do it. It really is a blast!
