Does anyone have any good pictures or advice about FE gifts for a first-timer? All the pictures I was googling showed that the pouches on the FEs look really small. How does everything fit?! Are the gifts always really little?

Whenever there was a FE gift that wouldn't fit into a pouch, I have seen them propped up against the stateroom door.

Sometimes the stateroom host would bring it in and lay it on the bed, sometimes they would leave it outside to be discovered.

Depending upon how it is fashioned, the pouches can hold a bunch of loot.

And I have seen some pretty creative FE. Not just pouches.

It's true that there are less people, but it's also a smaller space, so it can still get crowded, but it manages to be somehow less hectic.
VERY SPECIAL!! I totally agree!! And with all the times we've been on it I personally never found it crowded!! We really do love her!!

350 days!
We will stay in Miami the night before, but I haven't even begun to look at places. I will most likely make my own transfer arrangements this time. I've come to find out over the years that if you arrange your own transport you get on the ship much earlier than with DCL.[/QUOTE]

Just booked, but that will probably be the game plan so we can be on board first thing!!! And we'll definitely go cheaper and get our own transportation!!

Thanks, rescuetink! And if you join the Facebook group, I have my sketch up, I have never been able to work out how to post it on here! I also find the Magic very open and easy to find a peaceful spot if you want it. Although the only cabin I ever had was smaller than a prison cell, haha, so I am excited to be a guest for the first time!

Hello! We just booked this cruise. We've always wanted to do a CC double dip! This will be our 10th Disney cruise too so lots of reasons to be excited. We're just 2 adults, late 30s, so no FE for us but happy to have other people to be excited with!! Let the countdown begin...

Merry Christmas, everybody! I work tomorrow (Christmas Day) so today was our "Christmas". Had a great day with family, and I got a little cam corder which I'm really excited about! Definitely something I wish I'd had on our last cruise. Hoping for an uneventful day in the ER tomorrow and for a very happy holiday for all my cruising buddies, new and old! (Not THAT kind of "old" Cyndi, calm down! Lol)

Merry Christmas! Sorry you have to work. I had to the last three days and felt sorry enough for myself. Some of my patients were definitely not in the holiday spirit. Hopefully it's a very smooth day!

Hi everyone! We just booked this cruise. We just got off of the Wonder on Sunday. We did the PC cruise. It was the best vacation we've ever had! So, we'll see how this short cruise is. This will be our 8th Disney cruise. We've actually done this 5 day before a few years ago. We only got to go to CC one day, though, since the other day the Magic couldn't make it in. We would love to do the FE. It will be me (DW), DH, DD 7 and DS 4 in room 6540. Also, we surprised my inlaws on Christmas and told them that we are taking them on the this cruise with us. It will be there first cruise! I don't think they'll want to do the FE. Although, I'll ask them and see.

Dreaming already of being on the boat!
