The WDW Radio Cruise on the Disney Fantasy with Ridley Pearson is rapidly approaching, and for those of you who are joining us on this amazing voyage, we have a wonderful activity you may want to join in: The WDW Radio FISH EXTENDER EXCHANGE.
What IS a fish extender exchange?? Remember in elementary school when you gave out Valentine’s to all your classmates and left them in handmade mailboxes? Think of a fish extender exchange as a kind of Valentine’s Day card exchange with a Disney Cruise twist!
This is how it works: when you are on the cruise, you will find a small “mailbox” outside your stateroom door (see photo–these “mailboxes” are provided to those registered with the WDW Radio Cruise, courtesy of MEI / Mouse Fan Travel.) There is a hook shaped like a fish outside your door from which the “mailbox” will hang—hence the term “fish extender.” Other members of the WDW Radio family who signed up IN ADVANCE for the exchange will come by your mailbox during the cruise and leave small gifts, tokens, mementos in your mailbox—just like you did with those Valentine’s back in elementary school. In return, you also will bring small gifts to leave in the mailboxes of other registered participants. That’s it!! It’s great fun and an entertaining way to get to know one another and share some of your love for Disney with the other members of the cruise.
Please note: participation in the exchange is completely voluntary but loads of fun. You MUST register in advance to participate in our exchange… If you would like ideas of gifts to include in your extender and things to consider when selecting your gift items, PLEASE read this link for ideas.
**IMPORTANT NOTE: All members of the WDW Radio group WILL be provided with a fish extender courtesy of MEI/Mouse Fan Travel, which MUST be hung on your fish in order to receive important updates, notes, and notifications about the group events, etc. You do NOT have to create or purchase your own extender to participate in the exchange.
We hope you consider joining us for this additional source of Disney magic while on the cruise! If you have any questions about the fish extenders, please feel free to email me at Christy@WDWRadio.com
