Whats a fish extender? I read about them on another board but have no clue to what they are
Hey fellow Lou's Cruisers!! I was just wondering who was planning on hanging a fish extender on Lou's Cruise??
It sounds like a lot of fun. And I'm all about FUN!!!

I've seen pictures of them filled with candy, coloring books, stickers, booze, glow sticks, gum, pens, markers. Anything fun. I think I'm getting a 3 pocket one since there are 3 of us in our room.

Another link on Ebay. This is the one I like. You can choose what designs you want on it.

Hmmmm this looks like fun too.....count me in. I will make one over the Christmas/New Year Holiday when I have some extra time.
Do you have a list of everyone doing it with room numbers? Or do you just walk around nd put something in whenever you find a fish extender?

I think usually the group who wants to do it pulls together a list of participating cabins along with names, ages etc to give people an idea of how many/what kind of gifts to bring.
Not trying to throw water on this idea, but it's only a 4 night cruise, and it's a big ship to be running all over giving out gifts (and expensive!) Let me tell you what we did on our longer cruise, and see if it makes sense?
Everyone who wants to participate sends their information to the gift exchange coordinator (that would be Lori!) by a set deadline. The information needed would be cabin number, names (and ages?) of cabin members, favorite Disney characters or movies or attractions. Then, you treat this like a secret Santa gift exchange. For every cabin that wants to participate, Lori or whoever would draw one cabin number and send that number along with the supplied information to you by email. Then, you bring some gifts with you on the cruise to distribute just to that one room. Hopefully you can choose to give something age or character-specific, along with more generic items. The best thing would be to make a secret delivery every day, and then at the end you can choose whether to tell them who you are or not. We had alot of fun with it, and it works, no matter how many people are participating. Just seems like a lower cost, less time-consuming alternative. If you're still feeling industrious, you could still get a copy of the master list, and give out more goodies!
So, what do ya'll think? (almost afraid to ask!)
