We got a Tropical themed frame with the name of our ship, the "Dream". It had a great photo of Mickey on Castaway Cay.

We love the handmade picture frames. We have all three of them hanging on the wall with pictures taken on the cruise.

Does everyone make their gifts. I am not crafty and now I went out and bought gifts. Now I'm thinking I went WAY overboard.

Christmas ornament (glass, filled with sand and different color Mickey beads). It was made to be specific for our cruise and it has been on our tree for the last two Christmases. I love it.

Also, someone made a tote bag, embroidered with a Disney ship and our last name. It is absolutely perfect.

We got an awesome Christmas ornament with Mickey ear inside and a tag that had our cruise info. Such a great thing to be able to hang on our tree every year. Someone made it. We are no where near as creative...

We had a fantastic FE group on our June cruise.

Some of our favorite gifts were: plastic cups personalized with our names and cruise logo (already washed so that we could use them on the cruise);

a cd made up of songs with the word "dream";

little glass bottles imprinted with the name and date of all the ports we would visit to fill with sand from each port, (the Cape Canaveral one already thoughtfully filled);

tote bag embroidered with the cruise logo and our family name (was perfect to bring to the pool);

handmade cloth passport covers and luggage handle covers;

prepackaged food from the area the family was from, (including some very unique foods, like seaweed from Chinatown).


We only had 12 families participating, but everyone seemed to put a lot of thought into their gifts.

I liked when people gave me items from their region, especially the edible things!
But I was most grateful when I got a pack of cinnamon Trident as I had forgot to buy any gum prior to boarding.

We loved all our gifts. Awesome finding something almost every time we came back to room. But the ones that we see/use still on a daily basis. Mickey/Minnie shaped luggage tags embroidered with our first initial (put on our gym/pool bags) , wash cloths with Mickey or Minnie and our names embroidered displayed, handmade cloth Mickey head ornament displayed, personalized bookmarks and insulated cups with laminated insert designed with photos from Dream/Castaway Cay (the last was one we created)

I really feel like a slacker, as mine are not going to be homemade! But I'm not going to ship anything down, and it will not take up much room, and it would be something I would like to get. So we'll see how people like them. Can't wait to see all the creative stuff we will find in our FE!

We just came home from the Fantasy
and we had such a great group participating in the FE exchange! We received wonderful and thoughtful gifts such as magnets, personalized tattoo’s for pirate night, personalized plastic cups and notepads. Lots of cool treats for the kids and adults. I loved the homemade gifts but I have to admit.. the best gifts were the travel sized alcohol bottles! That didn’t take any space up in our luggage on the way home since they were put to good use on the ship!..

Small journal and a pen. Awesome!!!!! DW and I both got one and used them on our Alaskan cruise last year. Once we got them, we entered our experiences in Vancouver.
