    I know the Fish Extender activity is not sponsored by Disney, but I need to know the amount of space between the wall and the fish hook. I have a great FE idea, but I don't want to pack something that won't fit.

    Ahoy there Cindy, and welcome aboard planDisney - the perfect place to ask questions and get our tips and tricks for all things before you set sail!

    Part of the excitement leading up to any Disney Cruise Line voyage is being able to connect with your fellow seafaring folks online, and planning unofficial exchanges of gifts and trinkets. I love walking down the corridors and passing by all of the colorful Fish Extenders that guests hang outside their doors, and it's great to see them make a return after previously being prohibited for a while.

    As a fellow crafter I love that you've felt inspired to get creative with it, so I spoke with one of the friendly Crew Members currently on board who was happy to run up and check:

    • Typically the aquatic creature-themed Stateroom Mail slots have just enough clearance to be able to hold a few pieces of important correspondence; these can include invitations to special events, statements, promotional flyers or notices. Generally whether you have a fish, seahorse or starfish outside of your Stateroom door there's well under an inch of clearance to the wall, or just above 2 centimeters. (Note that this may vary and be subject to change from ship to ship and especially on the Disney Wish, but generally if it's thicker than a shoelace or a pen - chances are that it might not fit!) 
    • Be sure to check the official guidelines and policy for decorating spaces outside your door; you wouldn't want to be charged for anything that may result in scratches or any damages! I've seen some extravagant examples made of various materials that might be inconvenient or unsafe for Crew Members as they clean corridors and tidy rooms!
    Hopefully this was helpful to you in some way, if you have any more specifics about your idea or other questions I can help answer ahead of your journey, I'm always happy to lend an ear to a fellow buccaneer. 

    Wishing you all the best on your artsy adventures before you set sail!
