We'd be interested as well. Haven't participated in it before either, but all the photos of them do look fun. I'm sure the boys would love dropping off little gifts.

FE List for Disney Magic 12/1/12

Well.. since I didn't see a volunteer for the FE group, I'll give it my best try. I've searched a few other list to gather the details of what all info we need to get started. If you want to participate let me know and I will add you to the list.

Fish Extenders are a fun activity for the entire family to participate in while on your Disney cruise. Each participating family makes or buys a FE to hang outside your stateroom door. Each FE has at least one pocket for gifts to be left in, most have multiple pockets, one for each member of the family. Either one is perfectly acceptable. There are tons of pictures available online for you to get ideas. Also if you would prefer to buy your FE check out sites like ETSY and ebay. As for the gifts that are put in your FE they are either handmade or purchased. Don't break the bank with the gifts it is the thought that counts. Gifts can be anything you can think of, candy, pencils, magnets, etc. The gifts can be personalized to each individual or family in a stateroom or generic. You can gift as many times as you would like to on the cruise or just once, there is no set of rules. So if you are interested in participating please send me a PM with the following information:

Disboard name:
First names of everybody in your stateroom:
Ages and gender of kids, tweens, and teens in your stateroom
Your stateroom number if you know it:
If you will be celebrating any special event on the week of the cruise:
One FE thread also asked about allergies, that might be a good idea too?

Cut off for FE list is: October 15th. Afterwhich, I will PM each of you the full list of participants.

Let's get creative!!!

All right! There will be 4 of us. Me and meriberi as the husband/wife combo and our two boys ages four and two.

On a side note, you can up the thread count by going to the welcome thread and post a welcome on a few people's "hi i'm new" posts. Then you can start getting the PM's a little bit sooner.

And we're wondering if we should keep the older one up for the pirate party!

Welcome to the thread! Just a few more days until we can start booking online! Can't wait for the cruise. I'm also eagerly awaiting reports from the end of the month when the Magic finally starts sailing out of Galveston and see what activities are being offered.

We just booked the 12/1 Magic. We were going on the 12/8 Fantasy but couldn't pass out the IGTs on this cruise and fortunately we hadn't booked our airfare yet so the switch was easy. It is my DH, myself, our girls (5.5 and 10 months), and my mom in 2 rooms.

Only thing I'm trying to figure out is best way to get the Galveston the night before the cruise. We're staying at the Sunspree Holiday Inn in Galveston the night before. Anyone have any suggestions?

Hi lisa3635 and welcome to the thread!

We're driving down ourselves as we live close enough. As far as getting into Galveston the night before, it really makes a difference on which airport you're flying into, either Hobby or Intercontinental (George Bush or whatever it is called nowadays, lived nearby it too long to call it anything other than Intercontinental). Prices vary on different transportation from both.

Did a couple of searches and here are two companies prices for transfers to the port:

http://www.24hrairporttaxi.com/portofgalveston.html

http://www.houstontowncarandlimo.com...galveston.html

Not even sure if those are up to date, but they do show the price difference for the two major airports.
