    FE list is closed for new additions.
    https://onedrive.live.com/?cid=56EB1A498B957587&id=56EB1A498B957587!112

    Make sure I have your name correct, and your cabin number correct. Esp since there have been some cabin changes by folks taking advantage of various discounts.

    Let me know if you need to change cabin number, if a name is misspelled, if notes need to be added, if someone needs to be removed from list, etc.

    ***
    I'm going to put some sort of message board or notepaper on my door [6647] for folks that have last minute changes [depends on what there is at dollar store :)]

    I'll also check this thread up until the morning of the cruise, tho' most folks will print off their FE list well before then.
    ***
    I've split the list into ‘group A’ and ‘group B’, separated by a row of red..

    The split is entirely optional. Those who want to leave a FE gift for everyone on the list, fine. Those who just want to leave FE gift for those in smaller group, that'll be fine, too.

    I'll try to make this 'as clear as mud'

    Many folks that have commented about it, want to do gifts for both ‘groups’ on the list. That’s fine. In fact, that’s what I am doing.

    However, some folks are overwhelmed by the number of folks participating, and feel comfortable with having smaller ‘groups’. And they will just give to their group. That’s okay, too.

    So, if you’re doing gifts for the whole list, understand that there will be some folks who aren’t, and you won’t get gift from them, unless you’re in their group.

    The link to the list [and other stuff] is also in my signature.

    The effective difference ends up being how many FE you give [and get]. Many people find that doing both PCC & non-DU gets hard to manage if there are lots of people doing FE.

    We are in for fish extenders but have no idea what a pod cast cruise is. Does this affect the actual cruise, should we consider changing dates? First ever cruise. Celebrating our 30 th wedding anniversary.

    Is there a good explanation posted on how FEs work? We've never done it and it's just my wife and I on the podcast cruise 5.0. Is it only for kids?

    I added a DCL info link to my signature.

    In short. FE is a pocketed hanger you hang on the fish by your door. Everyone participating in FE, leaves a little momento [candy, chocolates, pencils, magnets, etc.] for others participating.

    And, NO, you don't have to be a child to participate.

    Here is a detailed explanation of the Fish Extender activity, including photos of fish extenders and gifts.

    Absolutely- adults can (and should!) participate in the exchange! I would say the vast majority of those participating on a Podcast Cruise are adults.

    Once everyone has signed up- you will have a list of those participating and cabin numbers. Then you will know how many gifts you need. You only have to deliver one time during the cruise. Of course, you can break up your deliveries into a few days if the rooms are spread out all over the ship. But one gift per cabin is all you need. Some people do one per person- but that will depend on the gift you choose.

    As has been said- we get candy, mints, pens & pencils, CDs (homemade Disney or seasonal variety) "toys," lip balm, photo albums, photo frames, trinkets from where people are from, key chains, air fresheners, magnets and so much more!! Be creative!!

    Finally- you can simply Google "fish extender gifts" and "fish extenders" and find countless ideas and examples to spark your creativity!!
    If you have more questions- this is the place to ask!!

    Some people are on the DIS but did not book through Dreams Unlimited Travel, and are not part of the Official Podcast cruise. Even though they are not part of the Podcast cruise, they also want to participate in the Fish Extender Exchange. The question asks if you only want to exchange gifts with
    * the members of the Podcast Cruise only
    * the cruisers who are not part of the Podcast Cruise only
    * both groups -- PCC participants and non PCC participants

    I've edited post #1. Having PCC and non-PCC on same list was confusing some people.
