Fish Extender Gifts for our next Disney Cruise

Now that Christmas is over, I have time to organize the gifts we are giving away on our next Disney Cruise. The Fish Extender Gift Exchange is a fun activity we have participated in on our past two Disney Cruises. It's sort of like a Secret Santa gift exchange between a small group of families/cabins. You can read more about it here.

Our upcoming group has 19 cabins. We are giving out an adult gift of a Mickey cookie cutter with recipe and personalized M&Ms with our cruise name and date.

The boys will be getting Avengers inflatable swords, to go along with the new Avenger's Academy in the Oceaneer Club on the Disney Magic. The girls will get Princess and Minnie light-up wands. These toys are from Dollar Tree. The kids will also get some candy to take to the evening musicals and movies, since theater concessions are one of the few things that Disney charges extra for on the cruise.

Other types of gifts we have received in the past include pirate tattoos/necklaces for Pirate Night, glow sticks, trinkets from cruisers' home states, door magnets and of course Disney character items.

Our kids have enjoyed these friendly gift exchanges, and coming back to our cabin throughout the day to find little trinkets on our door is like finding a full stocking on Christmas morning.

Need ideas for a Fish Extender gift? Check out Pinterest or Facebook groups that specialize in Fish Extender idea exchanges. Also, wedding favor websites and corporate swag websites offer items that you can personalize for your cruise date.

Have you participated in a Fish Extender Exchange on a Disney Cruise or on another cruise line?
