    Well I'm sailing on the Nov 30, 2013 on the Fantasy, you're welcome to join! Lol! Although I haven't entirely decided what I'm going to do for FE gifts yet.

    Now that we are home from our cruise, I thought I would share what I made for gifts. Each person got a passport cover, luggage tag and tissue pouch. Each cabin also received a set of coasters and 2 magnets. We sailed on the Dec 28- Jan 2 2013.
    I will try to post the pictures for each one.

    I'm new at this whole FE thing. It is our second Disney cruise in Feb. I tried to get "on the list" for our cruise and apparently missed the closing day by 3 days. We have 3 cabins (ours, my parents and in-laws) I gave every one a FE for Christmas. Should I just do our own thing?

    Did you ask the group? Sometimes they will still let you in. Or you save them for your third Disney cruise?! ;)

    I did a request! Our trip is Feb 23 so I didn't think they'd close the list 12/31. Is it stupid to do little gifts for the family?

    Do you have a Facebook group? Some from our cruise that joined after shared they missed and really wanted to and several of us added them to our list. And I think it would be fun to do surprises for your group. Just think instead of doing gifts for 80 people you could do a couple a day for your group. :) it would be like filling Christmas stockings but spreading it out over length of trip. Sounds fun!!

    Hi Disneymom52-


    I'm on your same cruise! Whoo-hoo!! I just looked at the thread for our cruise and it looks like the FE organizer left you a message. Go take a look.

    See you on the cruise!!!!

    I went to the FB page and it says closed :-( I sent a message and haven't heard, no biggie. I will bring surprises for our guest and "pass pixie dust" to others :-)

    When people have given coasters is it always a set of 4? Would 2 be enough or do you think it should always be 4?

    These are wonderful! Your fellow cruisers were SO lucky to have you in their group. Can you explain how you did the scalloped edge coasters?

    Also, what sort of gifts did you receive in return?

    The scalloped square is a die for the big shot machine, I just cut 1 out of leather and 1 out of felt for each coaster. The Mickey head is cut from red vinyl using my Cricut machine.

    I received gifts such as key chains, lanyards, personalized tags and magnets. Also candies and snacks from where people live. I loved everything we got and will participate in FE on future cruises.
