    We are doing the May Panama Canal cruise which is 14 days. Kids will get something each week and then we have something for each cabin Once... Delivered early the first week.

    I agree that a gift per person, per day would be a lot. Regardless of how long the cruise is!

    For those that have done tile coasters eBay did you put on the bottom, cork board or felt?

    Wonderful items. Where did you get your ribbon for your key fob?

    Hi all. Can't believe that I forgot to take photos of all our fist extenders that we handed out! I was a bit ambitious, and decided one of our gifts would be a homemade knitted Mickey Mouse washcloth. I went from one per person (50??) to one per stateroom (a more manageable 12).

    Here is one that is closer up:

    I wish there was a way we'd get feedback to see if the things we made were actually used. I also did paperclip and Disney ribbon bookmarks, Mardi Gras Beads, magnet photo of Mickey and Minnie dressed up for Mardi Gras, (our cruise was during Mardi Gras), tattoos, highlighters, glow stick necklaces, Family Stateroom Magnet (looked like a cast member badge), fruit snacks, and I can't remember what else!

    Which cruise are you sailing on? My September cruise for 2013 has hardly anyone on the meet and greet page and no FE started?

    We were one of the lucky recipients of your FE gifts so I can give you feedback. Your gifts were great! The washcloth is very cute and will definitely be used. DD16 stole everyone's paperclip bookmarks to use at school. She loved them! The magnets are currently on our refrigerator reminding us of the wonderful time we had. Really, everything was very nice. Thank you!

    OMGosh! Thank you! So nice of you to say! It was our first Disney Cruise and I was so nervous about the FE gifts! I'm glad you liked them and hope they were useful. I know we used our highlighters to mark up our navigator each night!

    Glad your DD liked the bookmarks. :)

    Ebay... isn't that where we find all the cute supplies:rotfl:
    It's a mini blanket with different textured ribbons, material, etc. It's for a baby-2 age range. Something they can carry like a blanket but not so big.

    I had an idea for a fish extender gift that I was originally going to make for the girls in the group, but now I am wondering about expanding this. I have come across the cutest idea for hair bows with alligator clips. Would women here wear hair bows?
