Fish Extenders - Why First-Time Disney Cruisers Should Just Say No

One of the most beloved and time-honored Disney Cruise Line traditions is fish extenders. It’s a whimsical passenger-directed cruise activity that involves trading gifts with strangers to extend that special Disney magic. The name itself is derived from the little fish-shaped mail holders outside stateroom doors, on which passengers can hang an “extender” to receive gifts. These can be long and elaborate pocket-filled sacks or simple gift bags. Many people make their own, but fish extenders are so popular, you can find them on Etsy, Amazon, and even for purchase through Youtube bloggers.
