Fish Extenders For Disney Cruise

As I mentioned the other day, our family is taking our dream vacation – a Disney cruise! Of course I’ve been spending time researching how to make the most of our trip, and one of the things I have read about is called a “Fish Extender” exchange. On Disney cruises, there is a decoration next to the doors to the staterooms in a fish shape, which serves as a hook. People bring along a sort of mailbox that is hung from the fish hook, known as Fish Extenders. Then, people take part in a swap with other people on their cruise, in which families bring and receive gifts throughout the cruise. These gifts are placed in each family’s Fish Extender.

Here are a few tutorials I found for Fish Extenders:

Unfortunately, I don’t sew! Here are some no-sew ideas for Fish Extenders:

The one shown on the top right made from pencil pouches looks easy enough to me! The next part of this process will be deciding what to bring as gifts for our fellow cruisers. We seem to have a small group so far, which is probably a good thing in terms of creating gifts and bringing them along! There are tons of ideas out there for Fish Extender gifts, so stay tuned for another post about that!

Can't wait to see what you come up with and will tell you I don't sew either. So, I would be limited with what I could make, too!

I am so intrigued by this. I always wanted to take a Disney cruise and this seems like such a fun little extra. Do the gifts need to be Disney themed?

How fun is that!! Can't wait to hear about the cruise!

Dara said...

I think the pencil pouches are going to work out well though! I'll let you know!

Dara said...

I think they mostly are Disney themed. I will let you know when I find out!

Dara said...

yay! :)

Tamara Bowman said...

Ok, that is totally awesome. I can't wait to hear all about your trip!

I have never herd of that before, that's really neat! I'm glad you found out about it BEFORE your cruise so you weren't bummed when you went on the cruise and were missing out! I'll keep it in mine for a future Disney cruise for my daughter! Can't wait to see what you all get in exchang!

Dara said...

I can't wait to tell you all about it!

Dara said...

I had heard about it before - if you google Disney Cruises it's one of the first things you find! I did have some trouble finding a group of people going on my particular cruise though!

Holly Higgins said...

That's a really cool idea. How do you find a group to exchange gifts with?

What the Schneck - the blog said...

Oh I didn't realize it was an organized thing with a specific group before the cruise - that makes it even more fun because you can connect before and after the cruise too!

Dara said...

exactly! :)

Dara said...

through disboards.com or facebook. I actually started our facebook group since no one had yet!

Leslie said...

I think this is such a fun idea to add to your cruise experience. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Dara said...

I'm looking forward to sharing!

Fish extenders are so much fun! We try to do one each time we cruise. A good tip is to buy your gifts from Dollar Store (and add some Disney flare to it with stickers or whatnot) or if you are crafty, make your own!

thanks for the idea!
