Hi Welcome

FE is basically a cloth envelope system that you hang on your fish outside your door..On the dream they are starfish and sea horses etc. People that have signed up by a certain time have cabins numbers and guests in that rooms info and daily you will find little goodies in your pouches from these wonderful people....I have done it 8 times and it's really fun but can also be a lot of work lol..I believe the cut off date to join was about a month ago but you could read back and see who is in charge and ask them about joining...I also have hung my fish extender FE and put little goodies in it for my family without joining the FE for that cruise..either way have a wonderful cruise

The only main thing we want to make sure is that we get to do something at Castaway Cay.

Yes, if you want to dress up for the Halloween event and also for Pirate night you will need two sets of costumes OR you could be pirates for both You can schedule your excursion now online through the DCL website or you can go to the excursion desk once you get onboard. The excursions on Castaway Cay don't fill up except for the stingray encounter everything else is always available. You should have gotten a confirmation number immediately when you booked. I would call back and get that ASAP that will give you the ability to book your excursions online...Welcome aboard

Ahoy FE group!

We have had another family ask to join the FE. I will update the list and email out. If you have already left for your trip or planned out with exact numbers please don't worry, but if you can possibly manage to add a little something for our late-comers, (does not have to be exactly the same) I know that they would appreciate whatever you can do.

Thanks!
Jodi

Hi everyone!! Sail-away is quickly approaching! I am getting so excited! There always seems to be more chatter over on Facebook but I wanted to post/remind about the meet on this thread.

We are planning a quick "meet and greet" outside of Currents, deck 13 at 3:00p.m. You will be able to quickly locate Laurie and myself...we decided to have matching sail-away shirts AND the green Mickey heads!!

We are planning to use a DIS green Mickey head, personalized or not, either on your lanyard or a name tag etc. so that we can recognize each other. If you are able to find one, great, if not , private message me and I will email the link to you.

I don't know how to "upload" a "download" from my computer to the thread!

I can't wait to meet everyone!!

I just booked this cruise for myself and DD18. We have just gotten off of the Dream on 9/29/13 and loved it. It was too short and we got an awesome rate so we are going again. This time it's just my daughter and I. So we are so excited.

We have had quite a few last minute requests to join the FE. We are going to call it the Pixie Dust List. Anyone wishing to join, please message me today with your group info. Thank you!

Jodi

Do we have an updated FE list/ pixie dust list? Last time there was 16 rooms but I think I read someone was dropping out and I know ohers asked to be added. Less than 2 weeks to go and I'm trying to put everything together. I don't want anyone being left out!

Hi!

I just wanted to say hi to everyone! I've lurked a bit, but hadn't posted. We have 4 staterooms including 14 people of all ages going on this cruise. It's been almost 5 years since our last Disney Cruise (I personally have been on 4) and we're so excited to see the Dream! I wish we could do the FEs, but I'm not ready for that kind of commitment taking 3 small children on this cruise

I'm not sure who's in charge, but I have requested to join the fb group. I wanted to ask if there's anyway to tell our actual itinerary. Which night is the Halloween stuff, which is Pirate night, etc??

Hi Everyone,
Please note on the Pixie Dust list that the last room number on that list should be 6120. That should bring everything up to date!!

Thanks!
Jodi
