This is exactly what I did for our last cruise in April on the Wonder. Except I put the DCL Logo, then Disney Wonder and the date on the back. I also used plastic flat ones, I don't think glass would have made it thru all the different modes of transportation (truck, plane, shuttle, underground shuttle, taxi, ect..) we needed to use to get there.

Fish Extenders

Hello everyone,

I am going to be having a small wedding aboard the Disney Dream this September (3 night) and really wanted to surprise the guests and hang fish extenders for some small gifts throughout the cruise. I am not crafty and was wondering if anyone made these? I am looking to buy 9 for a reasonable price. All but one need to have two pockets.

Thank you for you're help!

Ikea and amazon used to have hanging pockets that you could buy and decorate for your guests. If you look back through this thread (or use search) you should find the links.

Good luck! It's a great idea!!

There are several people on Etsy who sell them, just be careful and check their feedback (I've heard of problems with one or two). The Ikea pockets are great if you are up to decorating them. They have 3 pockets to them (cost $5, plus shipping if you are not nearby one of the stores, plus any items you purchase for decorating). Another option is just to buy tote bags and decorate them. You can pick those up at Michaels, Joann Fabrics, or even the dollar store. There are threads that have pictures of all the alternative things people use instead of the more traditional multi-pocket hangers.

Is there any better place to live than Mickey's backyard?

This will be my first FE participation and I've gotten some amazing ideas from this thread so I'm subscribing so it's easier to find. I don't consider myself to be that creative but I'm sure I can come up with something.

I just went to Ikea and bought this for $4.99, it's off-white, with light red and light green (it looks white, red, and blue online). I am going to go to Michael's and pick up some stuff to embellish it with. I'm not a sewer, so this seemed like a good substitute!

(Sorry, can't post links yet, but you can search ikea online, they are available for shipping)

Well now that I have a gazillion different ideas I have to figure out what I want to focus on!!

Has anyone who has done coasters had luck with getting them to be not-sticky?

Also thinking of little purse kits (with little folding scissors, mini super glue, band aids, etc...all that stuff a mom might need in a pinch)... anyone know where you can get tiny tubes of super glue?

Joann's has super glue in little individual tubes (they come in a set of 3 or 4, maybe). You could probably find the same thing elsewhere, but I know Joann's has it since I bought some there.
