If so, no worries. If not, then your mat would go to waste (or I guess it could be given to another family that didn't know about the GS thing).
Last cruise I was on it was only supposed to be 2 things per room but I know they have allowed more based on the amount of children in the room

I need some creative help with my Christmas ornaments. I am using clear plastic ornaments and want to include some type of tag identifying our cruise, but I'm not sure what to use - I thought about writing on the ornament itself, but I'm afraid it will look sloppy. My other thought was to have customized ribbon made, but that seems to be an expensive options.

Any ideas?????

Wow. Very impressive !

My concern with this is the number of FE participants. I fear if too many people start dropping off stuff to be signed, DCL will eliminate this perk (I'm sure non-FE folks will drop stuff off, too). If I remember correctly, there was a brief period of time where they did for ths reason??

Maybe fill them with mini items that symbolize where you are from (no sand, though - not allowed). You could do a message in a bottle type thing with a picture or actual message. You can do the marble painting inside. Use themed stickers on the outside. Ooops... are you looking for just the tag ideas? In that case, you can print your own ribbon (Google for instructions), or just print out a fun tag and tie it on with curling ribbon.

What about doing clean ornaments then using your printer to print out:
Dates
Boat
Every
Single
Port
on a different line?
Then cut those lines out individually (like shred it) and fill the ornament?

These are the coasters that I made and gave out...of course I had to keep a set for myself

Oh, can you please share how you made these, they are very cute! Our cruise will be Western Caribbean. But maybe I could do just something from Castaway Cay.

Im doing something similar with glass ornaments and had a similar issue. I found rub on transfers called rub onz at hobby lobby. They are a little pricey about $8 for four sheets, but I was able to get over a dozen transfers per sheet so I only used one package for the whole cruise. You can also go to the hobby lobby website and print a 40% off coupon for one item which helped a lot. They ar fairly simple to use, you reverse your image and print it on a regular printer then apply following the directions included. Good luck and have fun!

I have a question about using candy for the FE's?

I thought taking food onboard was not allowed? Was it just that it couldn't be shipped beforehand - something about sniffing dogs, etc?

So, are we allowed to take food/snacks of our own onboard?

Thanks!

You are correct that foods and liquids are not allowed to be shipped before hand. Sealed, pre-packaged, manufactured foods are allowed but homemade items are not allowed no matter how they are packaged.

Thanks for the tip about the rub ons. I just did a search for them online and they are called Grafix Rub-Onz transfer film. Seems really easy to use, I'm going to have to pick some up. The wheels are spinning with ideas for them

As for ideas for the ornaments you could always print off a picture of the ship you're going on and "float" the picture in the clear ornament, maybe back it with the itinerary and dates and tie a red ribbon on the hanger part. To float the picture you just roll it up to get it in the ornament and then use something long/flat to smooth it out. It won't be up against the glass but just inside.

for anyone who did these tile coasters - how many did you give, and HOW ON EARTH did you lug it all around?

Did you ship them to the port ahead of time?

Thanks!

If you are going on the Disney Magic from NY to Canada on August 12th - don't read th

This will be our first Disney Cruise and we decided to join an FE group.

I was making magnets for each person and then one per stateroom.

After finding this link, I'm thinking it's not enough. I haven't finished all of the individual personalized magnets yet so I don't have a ton of time, especially since I have a 3 and 5 year old.

I was going to order some stuff to make goody bags for the kids that had some pirate stuff in it, but then after talking with someone in our group I thought they could get stuff like this already because of pirate night (I was going to do tattoos, mini telescopes, pirate rings).

Does anyone have any ideas for someone who isn't really crafty and that won't cost me a ton of money?

Thanks!

Sari

The hidden mickey sounds interesting. Is it for a Cruise? If so, possibly the Magic?

Can someone please explain this to me so I can see if I can add it to our FE gift?

Thank you so much!
