I got a request this morning from another requesting to join the FE group. I declined, stating the deadline was posted many times, people have less than a month now and most have already started gathering gifts. I hope I did the right thing, I do hate saying no to anyone about almost anything. But, my thought is that if this exception is made and someone asks next week then what? We leave in 2 weeks for WDW prior to the cruise...... Feeling bad. This person has not yet posted on our thread and just booked the cruise, evidently.

I posted on their FB page and asked them if the new lot was still gated and covered. They said it is not covered, but it is gated and they still have 24/7 security. The lot is only a couple of blocks away from where it was before. However, the fact that their permanent lot was covered and partially underground was a big plus for me. I haven't decided if we are going to park there or not. I'm not sure if their "gate" is a chain link fence or what. It just makes me a little nervous, having the wording "temporary lot". I might do some research and find another lot. I'll let you know if I find anything.
I think we're going to use that lot. I've read good and bad reviews,but more good than bad.

I feel bad BUT we made a deadline - I vote stick to it. We have a lot of cabins already anyway Perhaps you could suggest that they post looking to form FE#2 for any last minute people who want to get in on it. We did that with my last cruise

Just to voice my support, we agreed very early on to a hard deadline. It is an unfortunate consequence that some people may join the meet group after the date but setting a date is necessary. Some people put a lot of work and preparation into FE gifts. Actually this date is closer to actually sailing than several of the FE groups I've been a part of.

Everyone is still welcome and encouraged to be a part of our meet group however. Have fun and get to know other DIS members!

Maybe I should have said, I also am female LOL, after I read the post I send I didn't clarify.

I ordered and purchased custom made items, I only ordered enough for the group we have because of the deadline and knowing you wouldn't add any others. I agree about not extending the deadline or adding any others at this point. And I like the other posters idea that maybe there can be a second group started by the latecomer. You did the right thing Mrs. Mork Don't feel guilty! You're great for doing all this as it is! Can't wait to meet everyone!!!!!!

That was the right decision - a deadline is a deadline. I know I will have some extra "stuff" and if I see a FE on a cabin that isn't on our list, I will leave something AFTER I have delivered to all on the FE list.
