Well my wife and I will be cruising this cruise. We will be celebrating our 13th anniversary. This will be our 3rd Disney cruise. We never really had a real honeymoon. So we are ditching our daughter for the cruise.

Welcome

Welcome to the group to all the new families. It's been a while since I've been on the Disboards. Has anyone talked about the Fish Extenders yet? If not, I can be the lead to start this for our little group.

January 20, 2013 Disney Dream FE Sign Up!

If you'd like to join, please post the following information and be sure to subscribe to this thread to receive updates:

-- DISboard username
-- Cabin # (if you know it already)
-- Family Last Name (helps with personalizing family gifts)
-- First names of those participating, ages of kids in cabin and whether boys (B) or girls (G)
-- Favorite Disney character for each of the people in your cabin, if any (this helps if people make gifts specific to the people in the room)
-- Any special cruise celebrations
-- Any food allergies, etc

If you are uncomfortable posting any of the personal information, you can simply say "Adult, Male" or "Girl, 8" for example. As families join, I'll keep a master list of our group on entry #2 below. That way, you can go back to that entry at anytime to see who all is in our group. The week after our cut-off has passed, I can make a spreadsheet of all the info., organized by deck for convenience, and either post it to Google Docs or you can PM with your e-mail so I can send it to you.

For those who are new to this fun cruise experience, the Fish Extender itself is a pocket panel you hang from the fish shaped hook outside your stateroom. These can be homemade or you can purchase them on sites like Etsy, you can also find some pictures on Google or DIS forums. Families that join the FE group hang the Fish Extender outside their cabin and then exchange little gifts with others participating in the group by putting little gifts in each otherís extenders.

Here is a thread with some basic info about it:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1219607

and here is another thread with homemade gift ideas:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread....homemade+gifts

It's a ton of fun, not just for kids, and you can either give one gift to each cabin, or a gift to each person in the cabin. You can give gifts a few times throughout the cruise or just once. No real set rules, just exchange and have fun! Gifts can be homemade or store bought. That's part of the fun . . . the variety of gifts that everyone brings!

Also, you might bring a couple of zip ties to help attach your FE. Some people have commented, unfortunately, that theirs have walked away. BUT thatís a lot less likely if itís attached with a zip tie (just donít forget scissors or clippers to cut the zip tie when you're going home!)

All gifts should be delivered between the cruise leaving port on Sunday, January 20th and early evening on Wednesday, January 23rd. That will give people time to still be able to pack their bags on Wednesday (they usually have to be outside cabin doors by 10:30 that evening) before we leave the ship on Thursday morning.

Our group will close November 20th (2 months prior to sail date). This allows people plenty of time to order, make, assemble, personalize, etc their gifts. Thank you!!

I'm just getting us started and organized, so if anyone has any other ideas or suggestions, please post!! Can't wait to see our everyone!

HERE IS WHAT A FISH EXTENDER LOOKS LIKE. THIS PICTURE ALSO HAS MAGNETS ON THE DOOR AND YOU CAN DECORATE YOUR DOOR THIS WAY TOO...

We are looking to doing the FE, but not being the most tech savy , don't know where we are to put our info. Help please!

BTW, just bought DD the cutest Cinderella rolling carryon at the Disney outlet. Think that will be what we wrap up for Christmas when she will find out that we are going.

We have decided to do the night before at the AK and 2 nights after at the Poly. Anyone else going to be catching the Magic Express to and from?
