Every stateroom has a fish hanging on the wall outside the door. This is part decoration and part message center. The fish is there for Disney to place important communications to you such as excursion tickets and notes from the Cruise staff. It is like a mailbox for your room.
On the DISboards discussion forums, it is very popular to participate in a Fish Extender exchange. This entails having a fish extender hanging off the fish outside your room.
All the people in the exchange buy little items and place them in each other’s fish extenders. It is great fun to come back and check the items you have received.
The standard extender comes with (up to) 3 pockets, each with a Mickey or Minnie head and Name, the large top family name, your design option, dowel rod and ribbon hanger. Each extender is a little different based on the supplies at hand; not all ribbons will be exactly the same, but will have the same feel as the ones I’ve made before. If you want different colors, please contact me BEFORE you purchase.
++++++++++ I LOVE CUSTOMIZING THE COLORS!!! If you want different colors, please contact me BEFORE you purchase so I can be sure I have the correct supplies I’ll need. ++++++++++
Standard colors are as follows: Black Background, Red Pockets with Black Heads/White Outline (with ship option), White Heads/Black Outline (with emblem option), Ship as shown in pics with Red or Black Mouse on flag (if that option is chosen), White Names/Text, Black overall Edging for Ship option, Blue Edging for Cruise Emblem option. These options will be chosen for you and may/can vary slightly depending on supplies.
You can add up to 5 pockets. If you need more than that, contact me first.
!!!! ==>> PLEASE PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING information for the pockets at checkout. <<== !!!!
Top Pocket: Boy Mouse
Middle Pocket: Girl Mouse
Bottom Pocket: Boy Mouse
You can also upgrade all appliques on your fish extender to beautiful, Glitter Mirror Canvas (TM) VINYL instead of the standard felt. Colors will be the same.
Glitter Mirror Canvas (TM) is not like the regular “glitter vinyl” that you may be used to. Glitter Mirror Canvas (TM) is a Full Color Glitter Canvas with a very thin layer of vinyl (PVC) on the top.
The thin layer conceals the glitter, does not flake, nor does it add extra bulk. This vinyl is smooth as butter! It’s gorgeous.
It is anti-mildew and abrasion-resistant which will keep your Fish Extender beautiful for many many years.
**Polka Dot Pockets are NOT available. They are a custom pocket with HTV dots on the red canvas. Please inquire BEFORE you purchase if you want this option. It is CUSTOM and it cost a bit more.
