Adult Fish Extender Gift Ideas
There are so many great Disney gift ideas for kids, but adults can be harder to shop for! Here are a few fun ideas that will work for any age!
- You can't go wrong with this unisex Disney Baseball Cap! I can't get over how cute it is!
- Cute Minnie Mouse Wallet Lanyard would be perfect for holding your key to the world card and a few other necessities!
- Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World Book my husband and son would love this book! They are all about learning Disney secrets and trivia!
- I bought these Minnie Mouse Earrings for myself before our cruise and I love them! They were comfortable, and super affordable! I already want them in one of the other fun colors!
Castaway Cay Inspired Ideas
The Castaway Cay day on Disney Cruise Line is most definitely our favorite stop! Make it extra fun with some of these cute beachy ideas!
- Beach toys for Castaway Cay are always a good idea!
- These no-spill bubbles for toddlers are so much fun! Plus, so nice for mom and dad who don't have to clean up any messes!
- My older kids would love these emoji inflatable beach balls! They would be easy to pack too, then people can inflate on Castaway Cay!
- Not only would goggles be great for that clear blue Castaway Cay water, but they could be helpful on board the ship for chlorine sensitive eyes too.
Cruise Preparedness Gift Ideas
Especially if you have first time cruisers in your group, things like lanyards and sea bands can be life savers, and are also cheap to buy! Three cheers for practical gifts.
- Cruise lanyards are a great idea for new cruisers. Perfect to keep your key to the world card handy without having to carry a bag!
- Sunscreen, Dramamine, or other cruise essentials would be a good idea for the first day of sailing.
- Sprinkles and toppings for the soft serve ice cream are so fun! Nothing better than the ship's unlimited soft serve!
- Re-usable straws to use while on the ship are a great idea because Disney Cruise Line has done away with all paper straws to help the environment!
DIY Fish Extender Gift Ideas
If you are a crafter nothing is more fulfilling that making something for someone you know they are going to treasure! Here are a few fun and simple DIY fish extender ideas to get your creative juices flowing!

Star Wars Gift Ideas

Princess Gift Ideas
Princess gifts are also timeless for any girl! We gave out the princess chapsticks as one of our FE gifts last cruise and they were a major hit!
- Princess socks are another fun thing we gave last time. You can get a pretty good bang for your buck by buying them in sets and splitting them up!
- Autograph Books to get all your character signature on board the ship!
- Character chapsticks I love these because they are a gift that can work for any age or gender! Last cruise we gave the girls princess chapstick and the boys Star Wars. Three cheers for gifts that are fun and practical!

Pirate Night Inspired Gift Ideas
Second to Castaway Cay on our kids favorite list has got to be pirate night, and I have to say we love it too! Nobody is going to be mad about getting a little extra pirate gear in their fish extenders! Plus, these options are all really affordable, too!
- Pirate night gear like these eye patches!
- Inflatable pirate swords, save room by gifting them un-inflated and letting people blow up their own!
- 12 Piece Pirate Bandana Set Disney gives you each your own bandana to use on Pirate night, but it was fun to have extras for arms, legs or other embellishments!
