yup, I've been on there and LOVE the ideas! I've been quite the slacker lately though when it comes to following anything!

Glad to see so much interest in the Fish Extender. Not a problem in setting it up. The Facebook site is great! Thank you. I have vamp up some of my ideas. However you want to participate is fine. One per stateroom, one per person. Once or daily. I know I speak for our room, anything is wonderful. The other grand kids we took loved going to the room and finding all the wonderful surprises. As time gets closer I will put together a group meeting if you want to meet the members of our group or anyone that would like to show up. We can decide on a name for our group if you want. If anyone has any ideas please let me know, we can put it to a vote after we have them.

We are so excited about doing the fish extenders. My kids and I are on our 3rd homemade item already. I am so excited to share them, but also want some of them to be a suprise to you all. Our family is good also with 1 per stateroom or pp. Even though at this point I am making per person, except for couples, (planning on doing 1 together). We are really fine with what the group chooses, we really enjoy making these things. My suggestion about gift delivery would be divide it into 2 days or assign everyone a different day. I have heard its really hard on these short cruises to delivery daily. We want to also enjoy our time on the cruise. We are also open to what everyone thinks. The other thing to think about when we get closer is a max number of people, before breaking off into a second group. I have been following a few groups and a good average is around 12-13 cabins. That would be on an average of 65 people. That is a good bit to prepare and it would make delivery alot longer if we continued to add. Some of the bigger groups were spending 4-5 hrs delivering a day, that's just too much on a short cruise. I would love to know what everyone thinks?? Suggestions?? Any fun things you are working on. We have so many magical things planned for you all in our group

I've seen a post of yours on the fish extender Facebook page crystal - cute!

I agree that setting a limit up front sounds like a good idea. 65 people sounds a lot more economical than 160 like some that I've read. I didn't realize that people spent so many hours just on delivery. Not only that but you have to have the luggage space to bring your gifts and take home what you receive.

My personal opinion on a delivery schedule is just to let people do it at their own pace but if we decide to break it up or make assignments I will be happy to follow.

Only 225 more days!!! I can't wait!!!

Very good point about luggage. We may fly so luggage will matter. I seen a great suggestion about delivering on another group that was great. "For distribution, I organizes by elevators - all those closest to the foward elevator, all those closest to the midship elevator, and all those closest to the aft elevator - and then go up or down each elevator stopping at all floors needed. Seems to go quicker and no big long hallways". I love this idea, it does look like it will be quicker. We can't wait either and are open to everyone delivering on their own schedules too.

I've just booked on to this cruise yesterday I am taking my OH for his 30th birthday, but my birthday is actually the 10th May! So we'll be celebrating mine on board too! I am so excited to be on a ship on my birthday!

I can't wait Neither of us have been on a cruise before! We have room 7188 booked! Anyone else on deck 7?

Can I join your thread too?

Can someone tell me what FE means too!

Many thanks xxxxx

Yeah!!! Another May 10 bday!!! We are such a cool bunch

FEs are fish extenders. There is a little thing you put outside your door like a mail sorter (it's all I can think to describe it) and then people in your group bring by little gifts they've made or bought to share with others. You in return bring items you made or bought to share with the other people in your group.

There is a Facebook page of people's ideas and things they've received on cruises before. I'm on my phone so I can't post pics or get that link handy. I think also if you search the DIS board you will find some FE threads.

That sounds like such a great idea, I would love to get involved?!

We're coming from Liverpool, UK so hopefully I can bring some scouse goodies over!

Our details are;

Room 7188
Arrianne (25) turn (26) on 10th May on the cruise!
Dave (30) we are their to celebrate his 30th which he will have had in march but we couldn't book anything until May as we're going to NYC for 4 nights first and I wanted better weather!

I don't think we could do daily gifts it's only 3 days and we want to do as much as we can and also flying over from the UK we'd need the luggage space! So once on the cruise would be perfect for us?

I'm so looking forward to our first cruise !

Welcome... we are so excited that you want to join us. There is a good bit of information on fish extenders on the dis boards or you can just goggle it. My favorite places to look at gifts are Fish extender gifts (group on facebook) you can join, Handmade Disney, and Disney Cruise Line fans all groups on facebook. Its such a short cruise that I can't imagine anyone would do gifts everyday. I am planning to possible delivery all mine at once. I have a few things for each person. Hope not to spoil the suprise but... my fish extenders two of mine are on the page of fish extender gifts. I have been working on mine for a month.
