Welcome Lisa!! There is a ton of information about everything FE on the DIS! The kids especially enjoy delivering little goodies and finding goodies left for them. It is great fun plus I get exercise and see different parts of the ship. Surely if you would like to join it can be done without facebook.

Thanks for the welcome. I'll keep reading about FE to see if I can figure it out :-) I'm not understanding whether you have to give gifts each night of the cruise, or if you just give one gift? And if there are "guidelines" as to what you are supposed to give as gifts?

DS is staying in the connecting cabin with Grandma. Maybe we could just put him on our FE rather than having two different FE's?

Lisa - Our family usually delivers goodies just once. Some give small things multiple times. Each family decides for themselves.
There are lots of threads that talk about what kinds of things people give. If you are looking for trouble just search fish extender on Pintrest!!
Basically, we hang a pocket organizer outside our door. You can easily search instructions for making one or even buy them on ebay or etsy. I made ours ages ago but need to make another one now that the kids are older.
BTW, You only need one FE for your connecting cabins. HTH

We are finally getting in cruise mode! Lately we have been purchasing swimsuits for the cruise while they are on clearance. I would sure hate to hunt for one in December!
We just can't decide how to spend the two days before the cruise. It will be crazy in Orlando but the kids want to see Harry Potter at Universal so we may drive from Cape Canaveral. We will likely stay in an inexpensive place in Canaveral then book the cruise parking package for the night before the cruise. Only if we can get an early shuttle otherwise we may use a parking lot with shuttle for the first time. I hope to make ressies that can be cancelled then decide closer to the date.

We are struggling with this as well. It seems a shame to fly all the way from Los Angeles to Orlando and not go to WDW (my DS is too young for Harry Potter), but the days prior to the cruise are crazy! We can't really go on NY's Day or Jan 2nd, right? I mean...the crowds will be outrageous, and I don't see how we'd get to see much of anything. Unfortunately, we can't stay after the cruise as school starts back up. Ugh!

DCL first-timers!!

Hi everyone!!

I am so so excited to be here and cannot WAIT for our cruise!! This will be the first Disney cruise for me and DH (well, actually I have sailed on DCL before, but I was 12 so this will be a totally new experience!).

We're actually taking the cruise to celebrate DH's 30th birthday!!

Is it January yet??

Passport fees!

I just filled out the forms for my two kids and ouch!! I guess it is better to pay now plus it is easier to get my kids and husband together at a passport location before school starts. Our local places open at 10am and close at 3 so that wouldn't work well.

Fish Extender started??

Hi All! Myself, my DH & 13 year old DD will be on the Jan 3rd cruise. This will be our 6th Disney Cruise. Last time we did the FE & had a lot of fun with it. Is there one all ready started for this cruise? cause we would like to sign up.

Only 5 months to go!

Hi there! We will be on the Fantasy January 3, 2015 cruise as well! We have jointed the FE group for my three kids (I think). Hopefully, we will be able to connect through FB. Looking forward to meeting everyone on the cruise!

Hi! You did fill out the form, I just checked. I wanted to make sure that you just want your kids to participate? Not you too?

Hotels finally booked!

We finally narrowed down our pre-cruise plans. We booked Embassy Suites in Miramar Beach, FL for Dec. 30th then Radisson at the Port for 31st to 3rd with the cruise parking. I need to call tomorrow to see about booking the cruise shuttle and we hope to finally apply for passports this week. Enjoying the Fantasy!!

We are scheduled for the 10:30 shuttle. I really wanted earlier but that's okay.
