Talking Jan 5, 2013 Fish Extender Thread!

THE FISH EXTENDER LIST IS NOW CLOSED, THANK YOU



This is the first time that I am starting a fish extender thread so please add feedback of what I am missing.

Welcome to our Western Fantasy Jan 5, 2013 FE thread, 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. If I missed anything about FE's and the gifts let me know.

So if you are interested in participating I would like the following information:

Disboard name:
Real first names of everybody in your stateroom:
Ages and gender of kids, tweens, and teens in your stateroom (if you are comfortable giving your real age that is great too):\
You stateroom number if you know it:
If you will be celebrating anything:
One FE thread also asked about allergies, do you think that we should too?

Let me know if there is anything I am missing and I will add it.


AS OF DECEMBER 1st THE FISH EXTENDER LIST IS CLOSED

Hello! Please add us to the list. We have adjoining rooms with a friend and her daughter and will be putting out a FE for our staterooms as one FE if that is okay.

We are :

Laura, Robb, and Vickie - all 40 something

Kate (9)
Brooke (10)
Garrett (12)

No allergies in our group.

Robb, Laura, Garrett, and Kate will be celebrating cruise #2 and Vickie and Brooke will be celebrating first Disney cruise.

We are in staterooms 10530 and 10532.

Do we know how many people will be in our group? Can we set a number possibly so that we can go ahead and start to purchase things as we see them?

I have added you to the list.

We should set a limit to our group, I have never done this before so I am open to suggestions on when to cap it. Also we need to decide on a closing date so everybody has time to make/ order their gifts. I have noticed that other groups close 2 months prior to their cruising date. What does everybody think about closing ours on Nov. 5, 2012?

Are you going to have one fish extender for everybody or one per stateroom?

Thanks!! Maybe for the younger children, &/or for those of us who are "young at heart" could add their fav. character/s to help with personalization? What do you think?

I was thinking about that this morning after going through other fish extender threads, I think we could probably just add that as a category and have everybody answer that question. So what are Jeff, Jeffrey, Emily and your favorite characters?

We have done several FE's over the years. Some were just a few (less than 20) and one was over a 100. They have all been fun.

One thing I have noticed about this board is that people join up in the last days before any cruise so closing at any time is still hard. We have tried to plan for a few extras each trip when we do our FE items.
