    Okay, dumb newbie question here. Please bear with me :rolleyes1

    I've looked and looked on these boards, and I'm still unsure as to what a "fish extender" is. My girlfriend Lori and I have signed up late for this cruise (we don't have a stateroom # yet -- argh), but we have submitted our names to be on the roster -- and I'm not sure if we now require a "fish extender". That's fine ... if everyone else has one we want one too :yay: ... but help!

    How do I get one/make one/buy one............and...........where do I put it? Ack!

    I know, I know .... newbies! :rotfl2:

    If you go to the cruise meets forum and check out the DVC members cruise, those folks should be able to help you as they are using them.


    oh wait......here's a picture from somenone's DVC cruise last year, so at least you'll know what you are asking about:

    It comes from someone who sells them on e-bay, I believe.

    Check P1 P5 of the cruise meets board for the date you are cruising on..this will give you all the info you need.

    Thanks for the large picture; it really helps! I now see that it's hanging on a fish .... hence, fish extender -- makes more sense now! :)

    Of course, at this late date, even buying one off eBay and receiving it within a week, here in Canada, would likely be impossible.

    Ah well, thanks for all your help!

    And they are used for? Is it just a DVC thing? A maibox? I'm going on the Wonder on January 18 and don't know anyone who might leave me "mail"... at least not yet!

    Yes, Thank you Alanapapa. I've posted a message on the Cruise Meets thread and also entered it into the database thingie. I have heard from one person who will be on her honeymoon on the January 18th Wonder. :bride:

    Hopefully as the cruise gets closer, I'll hear from a few more!

    off topic: Can anyone tell me if this DIS board has adopted green as its "official color"? I've notice a trend in green DIS mickey head logos!

    Hey, that's MY door!!! That was from last years DVC member cruise. I purchased the "fish extender" from mrs.lips on eBay. At the time, she had a bunch in different colors.

    Fish Extenders are very cool!
    It was so much fun coming back to our cabin and finding goodies in the pockets.

    My DD has ours hanging on the back of her bedroom door and we'll probably take it with us on the Magic Saturday. We may be the only ones who have one and probably won't have much use for it this cruise, but since we got it on our first ever DCL trip, it's a tradition - can't cruise without it. ;)

    And to think I know the person who started the madness, it's almost like having a brush with celebrity.

    Hi Deb :wave:

    Here's another fish extender. This one was made by one of our "Wonder"ful cruise mates and we personalized it for the 11 day Southern. It was great fun to have a place for our "mail". Like AZ Pirates I can't imagine cruising without it now. :goodvibes We will definately bring it on our next trip, whether we anticipate mail or not. A tradition has begun.

    Im trying to find one of these on ebay, and try as I might, none of the sellers seem to know that in reality, they ARE fish extenders! :rotfl: What keywords should I be searching for?

    :wave: Hi

    I am not sure about the celebrity part LOL!

    Yes I did start the madness! I still laugh when I see threads started about them :rotfl2: And just more amazed at how they have taken off.

    Search on ebay for wall hanging I believe. The lady that had them on ebay bought them from the same discount store that I did.

    Good luck!

    OK, pardon this complete brain-dead question: the "Mail" is DIS'er communication a la' "meet you in the Walt Theatre at 9:00" or "Mike and Trish will be at the Goofy pool until 6:30" or "Does DD want to go to the midnight showing of Cars?", Is that right?

    Veteran of 4 cruises and this is one thing I've yet to see. :smooth: heh-heh-heh one more thing to drive DH crazy with.

    Things to plan: T-shirts, magnets, DIS meets, cocktail parties, fish extenders, ... oh yeah, another cruise!
    I :love: the DIS!!!

    Ok...now...what was the original purpose for the fish?? Is it just a decoration that you came up with the idea of hanging something on? Or did DCL have some intention for them?? :scratchin:

    You know what this means?? Soon DCL will be selling these for $40!!! :laughing:
