I have only ever taken part in one FE before any help / ideas are appreciated
I vote for delivering whenever, not scheduled! So did you gift every day or once per cruise? Based on what the majority did last year, i will plan to gift once per cruise, i think. I'm really curious as to how many participating cabins we will get. i've read about some cruises that have had over 100 rooms participate! In those cases they break down into smaller groups. Last year we had around 18 cabins i think. It was a good number.

On both of the FE i participated in we did it when ever we wanted (most everyone did it while the ship was in Nassau we were on the Dream) and only one gift for the cruise not one per day.

so i have had a look at decided that I am not quite clever enought to figure out how to attach the FE list as a document online.

But I could add it to the Facebook page as a document then people could look as and when they want and those that are not on facebook I could email you as and when I add families on.

Hello everyone! We'll be joining you on this cruise. Some of us booked this trip at the beginning of last year and then my daughters decided to join the group this past fall. We have three balcony cabins with 8 females: myself, my sister, my sister in law, our good friend, two of my daughters, my granddaughter and one daughter's best friend. Its a girls trip and our ages range from 9 (my granddaughter) to 61 (me). We are all huge Disney fans and very excited. Its is the second Disney cruise trip for four of us and the first for my daughters and friend and my granddaughter's very first cruise! Talk about setting the bar high!
Would someone explain exactly what a fish extender is? Thanks. I'd like to join in on FB also.

Welcome! Fish extender or FE is a gift exchange. you make or buy a hanging pouch / pocket thingy to hang outside your cabin door, then you get cool gifts delivered in there by the participants. and likewise, you deliver to the other participants. Alot of the gifts are cool homemade Disney-themed goodies, but they dont have to be. Usually each person has their own pouch on their FE hanger, so u can deliver a separate gift to each person, especially for children. Do a search on DIS and see lots of threads with really great FE ideas. I'm still reading through a thread of 249 pages of great ideas. Also you can find pictures of some of the awesome homemade FE hangers. I made mine, it was pretty easy, and I was super happy with how it turned out!

Hey friends! My husband and I just booked our disney cruise to celebrate our 3rd anniversary/honeymoon on the fantasy- 7 night Western Caribbean- sets sail Sept. 14th! We are new to this website and still trying to figure it out... Hopefully you all can help us out. We have heard about Fish Extenders and we would LOVE to join in on the fun! How do we participate? How many gifts do we need to get/make? We are so excited for this new adventure- September can't come soon enough!!
