    Fish Extender Exchange for the March 16th Wonder Western Caribbean Cruise!

    For those who are new to this idea, a Fish Extender (FE) itself is a pocket panel/bag you hang from the fish shaped hook outside your stateroom. Families that join the FE group hang their Fish Extender outside their cabin and then, as the cruise is underway, participants deliver little gifts to the others participating in the group by leaving them as a surprise in the fish extender pockets.... Sweet!! Who doesn't love presents!! It's a ton of fun, and not just for kids.

    As far as the gifts... you can either give a larger general gift to each cabin, or smaller individual gifts to each person in the cabin. You can give gifts a few times throughout the cruise or just once. It is the thought that counts. There are no hardcore rules regarding gifts (no minimum or maximum dollar value). Gifts can be homemade or store-bought, Disney, non-Disney, totally up to you! The point is to have fun and share some magic.

    Here are a couple of nice threads on the subject:

    Fish Extenders:
    http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1219607

    Homemade FE Gifts:
    http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2907032

    I will start a 'Master List' in the second post where I will keep track of the sign-ups with links to a Google spreadsheet. If you want to join, just post the following information on this thread.

    For each FE to be hung:

    Cabin ## (if you know it, it can be updated later)
    Names of all participants including ages and genders of children
    Any Allergies or Concerns
    Any Celebrations

    As we are just starting off, If anyone has any other ideas or suggestions, please post!! I can't wait to see our group grow! ::MinnieMo

    That is too funny, that on such a big ship, you two FE members are next to eachother :rotfl:

    I am also getting excited for this cruise. This is a much shorter time frame (less than 1 year) than the time between my first( 2008) and my second (July 2013), so I am still happy from the last time and our cruise is getting closer... I even started putting clothes aside.... now I am not usually THAT psycho of a packer, but it is getting much colder in New England now and I am putting away the summer and bringing out the winter clothes and I don't want to hunt for things later (so she says wink wink).

    @Fran my daughter is also very happy also to have someone her own age in the FE. On the July cruise, there was no one we met prior in the FE her age and she ended up totally ignoring the kids clubs in favor of hanging with her older brother (18). I am lucky, they have a tight relationship in general, but I think she was worried about him leaving for college, because she was stuck to him like glue. But this time she is with just Mom and Grandma... so I expect far more of an interest in the clubs.

    Hey everyone! My family and I are going on this, our first Disney cruise. I am new to DCL and new the DISboards as well. So I apologize if I am not putting things where they need to be, etc. Any pointers would be great. My family and I would love to be part of the FE exchange. We are in room 7598. Jason (husband) Kelly (me), Gracelyn (8 yrs) and Brystol (1 yr). Can anyone direct me to a good first time cruisers thread? Also, does anyone have a daughter that is around 8 years old? Grace is super excited to meet other kids on the cruise. Thanks in advance!princess:

    Welcome to the FE!! Are there any allergies that folks should be aware of? There is one other girl in the exchange your daughter's age. If you look at the second post in this thread it has the info for the all the current participants.

    If anyone is interested, I have started a FaceBook group page for this cruise. It is not public and is only open to members so if you would like to join please message me on FB (Stephanie Moeckel Cole) and I will invite you. Once you are a member, you can then invite whomever you want to the group. If you are already on FB, then it is an easier and more dynamic media to share "cruise excitement" with others than the dear DISboards. -S
