My mother and I live about 45 minutes from Port Canaveral and visit the area often to watch the cruise ships leave from port. We do live 5 miles from Epcot so we do spend a lot of time in the theme parks when we aren't working or going to college classes!

I hate to say that Seattle was robbed. Considering, I'm a Browns fan I have to butt it on others Super Bowl conversations since I never have any of my own stories to share.

Not to mention, I'm pulling for The Hawks this year. Russell Wilson is amazing.

See you all onboard.

Hi All!
We are veteran Disney goers and this will be my 4th Disney Cruise-- I'm counting the days since we got off the BEST TRIP EVER Fantasy Sept 2012 . . .
However, I am pretty new to DISboards and this will be our first time doing FE- we
are SO excited!! Who knows how it works? Does someone organize it? I am trying to make some things and need to know how many participants . . .
Please chime in, especially if you are interested in FE

Our crew:
Me-Audrey
DH- Steve
DS -ELijah (8)
DS- Levi (6)
DD- Vivian (3)
DM- Debi (first timer)
DF- Sid (first timer)

We are currently booked on the May 16, but wanted an extra day and are trying to move to the May 12 sailing

Hope to hear from someone soon . . .

we have plenty of room available on the Seahawk bandwagon so welcome. I was actually in the Matt Flynn corner through the 1st half of the season but I am now firmly a Wilson believer. He has been fantastic and to make things even better he is just a fantastic kid. Not many super bowl stories in Seattle either so we tend to cling to the one but I think Wilson might get us back at some point. Maybe see you on the cruise, I'm ready for some sun!

We loved the FE on our last cruise (when you exchange small gifts with your disboard cruise mates) and would be excited to do it again!

FE= Fish Extenders. Lots of posts on the DIS board about it, but here is the nutshell version-
Fish Extenders are pockets that hang from the exterior decorative/mailbox Fish outside of each stateroom.
Groups on a cruise get together and trade "secret Mickey" type small gifts throughout the cruise. You can either do 1/cabin, 1 for adults, 1 for kids, or 1 for everyone- it's up to you.
On my cruises it has been neat to see the little gifts and decorations- I think my kids are at the age that it will be SO exciting to return to our room anticipating goodies (and their Mom, too )
I hope we get a FE organized soon- looks like we have at least 2-4 families interested.
Any veteran FE'ers wanting to organize it?

I can not volunteer to organize it because I start my new college semester tomorrow.

BUT.... Our family is really excited to participate. My mom already ordered FEs for both of our rooms. And we are already talking about the gifts we want to put together. HINT.... My parents are from Hawaii and my mom is getting together goodies already so make sure you all sign up!!

I am looking forward to celebrating Mother's Day onboard with fellow DISers . . .

We live in TN, but will be driving down to s. fla for my sister's wedding which is on 5/11 so we will drive up to port canaveral the next day for the cruise.

Our family:
Me-Nicole, turning 32 on the cruise
DH-Josh 32
DS-Ari, 5 at the time of the cruise

If anyone on the cruise has a little boy around 5 and would be interested in linking dining, please let me know.

thanks,
Nicole
Hi! Welcome . . . My son Levi is six, so we'd love to meet up, but we have a large group so I bet we'll have our own table . . .

Calling all Fish Extenders!

I am so excited about getting started, but didn't see any one to organize it . . . SO, I am giving it a shot. I am new at this and the DIS boards, but am a veteran cruiser and Disney goer, DVC member etc . . .

If any one has pointers/comments/etc, just let me know. If any one more experienced wants to organize, let me know as well and I will gladly let you take over

The rules are simple: Sign up on the attached spreadsheet. Choose for yourself whether you will do 1 gift per cabin, 1 for adults and 1 for kids, or 1 for everyone. I would suggest little things like candy for all the kids even if doing one cabin gift so the anticipation of treats stays high . . . but it is totally up to you!
Sign up will end April 21 so that people can finalize plans.
There are many Fish Extender, Homemade Fish Extender ideas, FE DISigns available on the boards- just search . . .
DON'T let the amazing creativity of your fellow DISers discourage you from participating, however. It is truly the thought that counts, NO GIFT IS TOO SMALL, and dollar stores, oriental trading etc has lots of cute options without overwhelming you or breaking the bank. The more people who participate, the more fun it can be.

Thanks, everyone! I look forward to cruising with you. Please sign up

My oldest, Elijah, is also 8- maybe they can get together and have ready made friends in the kids club
