    Thanks so much for these instructions! We just participated in our first FEE in February and we got some coasters like this and they were among our favorite gifts because we use them daily and can remember our wonderful trip. I can't wait to make them for others the next time we sail!

    THANK YOU FOR SHARING!!!!!!!! I don't have an Ikea anywhere near me but will have some friends get a few for me and my family for our Halloween cruise on the Wonder! So excited about this find...it completely eliminates the brainstorming needed to create a FE on my own :cheer2:

    Your pillows sound wonderful. Are you just bringing pillowcases for each child or are you bringing an actual pillow? This sounds like something I could do for the kids on our cruise.....I would have to just bring the pillowcase, though.

    You can order them online. Not sure what the shipping is, but the thing itself is only 5 bucks!

    This is going to be my first time on a Disney Cruise to Alaska. I surely hope we are going to have a FE on our cruise. It sounds like so much fun. I am thinking about making reusable snack bags for the kiddos. Up to what age do you think these would be good for?
    Much Aloha, Tracey

    My plan was to make small pillows stuffed with fluff but now I am worried about packing them all! I may have to rethink this.....

    Don't worry I have something really good planned for the "big" kids aka adults :cool1::banana:. But I don't have much time to get everything done, time to get busy!

    can anyone walk me through how to insert an image? I tried the search function, but it keeps failing. I want to post pics of the FE gift we gave out. Thanks!

    I upload my photos on Photobucket, click on the image link that is created, which copies it and then paste it to here.

    Another way is to click on "Post Reply." On the toolbar, second row, "B, I, U, etc. you will see a yellow square icon, and if you mouse over, the pop up will say, "Insert Image." You need the image URL from your Photobucket, 4Share or other similar online photo account. When you have copied the URL, click the yellow icon, and enter the URL in the box, I forget if you need to click insert or finish. Easier than it sounds.

    If you are still having problems, it could be that your image exceeds the size allowed by Dis, and you need to reduce the file size-if you have Photoshop Elements, first check the image size, and make smaller if it is larger than 4"x6'. Then "save for the web" will allow you to compress the image. :)

    [​IMG][/IMG][​IMG]http://[/IMG][​IMG][/IMG][​IMG]I'm cross posting my post f[​IMG][/IMG]rom one of the FE Facebook pages.

    We got off the Fantasy Saturday, it was awesome. I had promised to come back and post what our FE gifts were that we gave out, and once I get more settled I will post what we rec'd, but they were all wonderful. This was our 3rd Disney cruise, but the first time we did a cruise meet and participated in the FE, we will continue to do both in the future.

    Here's what we gave: Main cabin gift was a hand made fabric holder for the 6 mod podge coasters we made. The coasters were individualized by cabin, each person got their own initial and then one of the mickey shapes, up to 6 per cabin. I used a combination of the Cricut Mickey Font and Mickey and Friends. This gift usually went into the Mom's pouch.

    Dad's pouch received items from our town of Mooresville, NC, otherwise known as "Race City USA" due to it's heavy involvement in Nascar. I went to our local visitor center and rec'd for FREE: Pens, Race shop tour maps, info on our town, a pack of Nascar postcards, sticky notes, and a large plastic bag for whatever they wanted to use it for.

    Kiddo's rec'd Disney activity books, older boys rec'd theatre candy, and older girls were given Mickey theme decorated journals.

    Also including a picture of the FE I made. Rhinestone Sailor Mickey and names were purchased from Etsy and then I put it all together.

    ok, so sorry the pictures are so large, I've never posted pics and don't really know how to resize them. :(

    Hi! I been browsing this site all evening and here you are too! You and I seem to be the only ones begging for a FE group on our cruise. Hopefully a group will be put together soon. I want to start working on gifts but not sure how many to make
