If you know of an event you'd like to do, please let me know via PM, or e-mail to DisneyMouseHouse@disboards.net and I will add both the info and a link to your post (so that you can keep that post updated) about the event. I've listed the events in alphabetical order, hopefully that will help you to locate what you're looking for......this first post is getting rather long - hehehe!

Facebook Group (Secret Group) Padalyn's post with info here: http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=49059083&postcount=14 Please PM Padalyn with your FB e-mail address so that she can add you to the group. This group is closed to all except those participating in this cruise, so it will be determined that you "belong" before adding you! Thanks! All of you who are participating should have access to the FE list at this point. If you still do not, please send me a PM here or on FB and I will send you the link to the list. RULES: 1) HAVE FUN 2) No further rules, when in doubt see rule #1 - hahaha! We do ask you give to everyone on your list. If you would like to be included in BOTH lists, PLEASE send me an e-mail or PM me here. It's totally up to you whether you give a cabin gift, an individual gift, or a combo of both. It's also up to you when you make your delivery. I do encourage you to do so before the last day of the cruise as I do know how difficult it can be to fit in "just one more thing" when you are trying to pack your bags on that last day. "A FE is a fish extender. There is a little fish outside your stateroom door where stewards can put stuff like invitations, papers, etc. A fish extender is something you hang from that fish with one pocket for each person in your cabin. Then, everyone signed up for the fish extender exchange makes or buys small gifts for the other people on the FE group. Throughout the cruise, you deliver little presents to other guests and they deliver things to you. When you decide to start delivering your FE gifts is all up to you. It is a fun little thing to do and you will get some really special cruise souvenirs that other people have made. There are sometimes get togethers with the FE people and it can be a great way to make friends and meet these DIS personalities in person. Also, wandering the ship to see all the decorated doors and unique fish extenders is a great way to spend some spare time. Some people make really magnificent displays."[/COLOR][/B] Linked Dining A few of us on this cruise are in the "Golden Years" that you hear about. We're young at heart, though, and love Disney. While we were accompanied by our children and grandchildren on our first Disney cruises, we're flying solo this time around. I wonder how many more are in the same category as us. We'd love to be able to arrange to sit at a table with other "Golden Agers" when we set sail on the EBPC cruise. If you are interested just send a PM, (Private Messaage), to Karen, (kayaker35), and she will add you to the list, and before the cruise will make arrangements with DCL to seat all together. The list is also open to families, Karen will keep the list and pair you up with others sailing with families. Palo Group Brunch We will not know dates for sure until about a month out or maybe a bit less, so please be patient. Right now we are at almost at full capacity for three brunches and I am currently contacting you via e-mail to have you indicate to me if there is someone you MUST go to brunch with! I have now CLOSED the signup as we ARE at three FULL groups. If someone should cancel, and you would still like to be included, please send me an e-mail to DisneyMouseHouse@DISBoards.net and I will do my best to accomodate you! Here is a list of the people that have signed up so far. DisneyMouseHouse/EjeG - confirmed OMD13 - confirmed davidls - confirmed MMBL - confirmed Thnlk - confirmed KyCruisinSusan - confirmed missjudit - confirmed Bellecruiser - confirmed JimmyL47 - confirmed kerstfan1 - confirmed susie2 lynandandy - confirmed bbkeough - confirmed Robin "D" & Angel - confirmed Baysurf - confirmed maryanned - confirmed MAfireman89 - confirmed Chrystinap - confirmed cola - confirmed (last update 7/16/2014) Photo Walk A great way to exchange ideas and tips and tricks for getting that "special shot" - led by EjeG (my DH) - for more info, read the post here: (it will be updated with info as we get closer to our cruise!) http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=49040774&postcount=3 Post Card Exchange Disneynanny has volunteered to host a postcard exchange. Info is being collected on the Facebook page (see info above) but if you don't have a FB account, you can send her a PM and she will add you to the list. Private Mixology We have had a volunteer to set up the private Mixology class for our cruise. He is on the FB page, and as soon as I manage to get thru all these threads to figure out who he is on the DIS I will list his contact info here! Sorry 'bout that! Yoga Group If you're interested in joining us for yoga at 7:30 a.m. on selected sea days, then please sign up. This is not a commitment to show up every day; it's just an indication so I can try to make sure we have a space that's large enough for everyone who's interested. I'm suggesting yoga mornings would be days 2, 5, 7, 11, and 14. It's every single sea day, and every other sea day when there's more than one at a time. Please contact "Futurist" to sign up, or sign up on the FB page, it's under Docs there!
