Glad to hear that Pixie (at least I think it's my CDs you're referring to).

Anything is great, especially if someone puts some thought into it. We received some great stuff too, embroidered bags, silkscreened logo bags (Pixie ), handmade keychains, etc.

The best thing we received from a FE family was a 'hand-me-down' DCL jacket that their DD outgrew. My DD loves it and I keep telling my wife we'll have to go on a cruise next year so we can 'pay it forward' to another family when DD outgrows it. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it. )

We got a bag of "useful stuff" that included safety pins, band-aids, an aspirin roll, Q-tips I think, a stain-remover pen, and there was more stuff that it never occurred to me we might need (it was our first cruise). Ended up using the safety pins for our costumes, and most of the other items in the bag before the end of that vacation. It was awesome.

Mickey mouse chalkboard, with magnets on the back. Most memorable.

We gave away personalized (but not individualized) grocery/reusable tote bags. We always grinned when we saw fellow cruisers using them during the week. One cabin ended up using the bag as their Fish Extender .

I loved getting the variety of things... handmade, food from a certain area, etc. The water bottle was cool and useful as well.

Okay, here is a question. I have an idea for a Disney craft project, that the kids could do onboard or take home. I would include all the tools, including scissors (and glue sticks). It should be fairly simple, maybe about 30-45min of work, and the end product can be left onboard. My dilemma is whether the parents would hate me for giving their 8-12yo's scissors? They would all be still packaged, so easy to put into checked luggage to take home.

Input?

I think that age range is totally fine with scissors. My 4 year old can use them a bit! I'd say, under 6 - no scissors.

Make sure it's OK to bring the scissors on board? And of course if you are flying make sure they are in your checked luggage. It would be awful to have them all confiscated!

cool ideas.

We love everything we have received and are amazed at the creativity shown. Some of my faves have been

CDs - loaded them onto my work laptop so when it is ucky outside I am bopping to cruise tunes. we had one with old old cruising tunes (40s). that was cool

Suncatcher - DD has it in her room and it makes her smile

Ornament - has a bit of the beach in it.


We got some cool little stuff - tattoos for pirate night and eye patches, pirate pencils...

light bulb

We received a light bulb!
It had the filament taken out and sand with tiny ornaments and tiny photo of the Magic ship inside. Very heavy glass so it would travel fine.
We all thought it was very nice.

The tiny info sheet on which deck was what.. that was helpful and the homemade lanyards!!

Our FE group had so many great things! Lots of thought put into them! One that sticks out to me right now is that DH and I each got a handmade fleece scarf with mickey and Minnie colors, and DS got a handmade fleece hat (Alaska cruise).

Oh! And a "countdown to our next Disney vacation" calendar, which DS loves!

Booze.

Someone in our FE group in June gave out mini bottles of Captain Morgan.

Nice to slip into our Cokes from the refillable station.

Scissors-coming from someone who is flying cross country and doesn't check luggage, they'd get left behind. If that is ok, go for it.

My first cruise isn't until April next year, but I'm getting lots of great ideas!
