    So, do we have someone who is experienced with FE who is willing to organize a FE group? :earsgirl:

    Tictoc, are you still willing to organize the FE group? I'm new to FE, so I'm not sure what all we need to do :)

    We will be sailing for our first time for spring break! It is my husband and I and our 8 yo daughter from AR. I was just wondering about the fish extender gift exchange. Is there a group going on for this? This is all new to us but really sounds like fun and we would like to participate!!

    I, too, am hoping we get a FE going for our cruise. I believe there are a few whom said they wouldn't mind getting it organized. As far as I know we don't have one going on any other thread. It might be a slow go since it was recently they split the 8 day cruise up...to one being the cruise we are all booked on. I could be wrong :confused3

    Lots of people from AR! We are loving that we can drive to port. If we're going to do the FE, we need to get on it...we are on the boat two months from now:cool1:

    I can head up the FE if need be. I've never done it, but I think if we keep it really simple, it won't be a big deal. I vote for everyone do what they feel they can-one gift per cabin, one per person, whatever...no rules!
    I was going to hang my FE from my last cruise up anyway, and put gifts in it myself for my 4y.o., so I was already commited.

    So I guess everyone put your cabin numbers, and gender and ages of cruisers in a post here. I will keep track of everything, and make a document if I need too. If we don't get over 10 or so, we can probably each keep track ourselves.

    What does everyone think? Any other opinions or ideas? Let's discuss.....

    I would think our FE group will be pretty small as there are only a handful on here whom have posted :) I believe "do what you can" is a good motto as well. Some of the FE threads had me 2nd guessing participating, but I know my 9 and 6 year old will love it :yay: and will be appreciative for whatever they/we might get in our FE.

    I am trying to give them every bit of an experience I can :tink:

    It would probably be important to set a cut off date for those who might make homemade gifts. Should we say 1 month (Feb 19) before we cruise? Again, I have never done this before...

    Hi Everybody! :wave2: I just booked this cruise yesterday for my family. First Disney cruise for all of us. I saw the fish extenders on Etsy just today, and had no clue what they were. It does sound like fun, so you can count my family in! My DH, DD8, DD5 and I will be sailing. Oh, and we are from Arkansas too.

    We will most likely be in. We will discuss tonight if we would rather participate in FE or try to get an upgrade when boarding. I will post back in the next couple days after we talk about that.

    Thanks!! So, we will have a list of cabin numbers that are participating and deliver our gifts to those rooms?
    Sorry but this is our first cruise and this is all new to me!!

    Altiek, thank you for taking this on! Here's our information:

    The McMillens (arkansas)
    Chris & Tina (Mom & Dad)
    Zoe - 8
    Mia- 5
    State room - 7018

    Do we give FE gifts to the adults too? I notice that some FE's have pockets for parents.
