    Hi Setare!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your upcoming Disney Cruise to paradise is just days away!!!! I bet your suitcases are out and you're excitedly packing for your adventures at sea. I love setting sail on itineraries longer than one week. I feel as though the ship truly becomes our home away from home!

    I'm excited to hEAR that you're interested in the Fish Extender exchange groups for your upcoming Disney Cruise. Fish Extender groups are not sponsored by Disney Cruise Line, but are actually created and set up by Guests who will be sailing on the same itinerary! This fun "Secret Santa" exchange gets its name because on the outside of each stateroom, there is a little hook where Cast Members and Crew can leave notes or paperwork for Guests. Many of these little hooks are shaped like things that can be found under the sea, like fish! Guests will make or purchase fabric pocketed holders to "extend" off the hooks. Then, once you're in a group, you will exchange little treats with the other Guests signed up in your group! It's so fun delivering the treats to each stateroom's Fish Extender! 

    If you're looking for a Fish Extender exchange group, I recommend going to Facebook and typing in the ship you'll be sailing on, as well as your sail date, in the search bar. Another place to find Fish Extender groups is the popular Disney Cruise Line fan forum, DisBoards.

    I'm wishing you a cruise filled with magic and fun!
