Below is explination of it I found a blog that sums it up:

Named for the decor from which they hang, fish extenders are usually handmade pocket organizers (similar to a shoe caddy or mail organizer) customized with names, favorite Disney characters, etc. These pocket organizers are hung from a decorative fish ornament that is attached to the wall outside of each cabin on the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder.

Prior to the cruise, fish extender groups are formed and organized via an online Disney fan site (here...lol). Once numbers are finalized, each member of the group prepares a gift for the other participating cabins. There are no rules regarding gifts (no minimum or maximum dollar value). Often times, the gifts are handmade, but not always. Once the cruise has commenced, participants deliver their gifts to the other participating staterooms, leaving them as a surprise in the fish extender pockets. One of the most fun aspects of taking part in a fish extender group is checking in throughout the day to see what little goodies are waiting.


The most recent list is a few pages back for our cruise so far... we are at 13 cabins - 40 ppl. Some people do cabin gifts and some do gifts for each person. Google Fish extender and you will get a ton of ideas of gifts and the actual fish extender. Some of the gifts are disney crafts and some are momentos from your home...anything goes!!!

We have set a cutoff of Sept 2 for people to sign up to help insure there is enough time to get things together. Some sailings have multiple groups, but ours is staying small.. I guess if we start to get alot of last minute people signing up we may split the group to keep things manageable (sounds like 20 cabins is a good max from my research).

If you are interested, I will add you to the list.

I am wondering how many people are planning on bringing costumes now that the Dream has official Halloween themed activities. I didn't want to pack heavy, but I also don't want to disappoint the kids and Halloween is our Anniversary.

My DD will have a costume. I will have adult costumes for the MNSSHP but am not sure about brining them on the ship. Don't even know what they are yet. I am so far behind.

This is updated as of July 25... 13 cabins, 42 people

Cutoff is Sept 2.

Amongst my endless research.. do we want to cap it at 20.. so cutoff at 20 cabins or Sept 2, whichever comes first? Then a 2nd FE group could start if necessary?
