Hi Everyone!

Happy Hump Day!!!

We are slooooooowly working closer and closer to our depature day! 9 Days left!!!!

Today we didn't have any after school activities, so, I cut out and laminated some of the last Tinkerbell gifts.

I decided to do the pick-a-pearl necklaces this trip. So, I made "coupons" to go with the necklaces. I believe they latch, so we can pop in the pearls when they get them.

Untitled
I decided to move the balloon shirts to our first day, so that we def wore them in MK. So, this past weekend I ordered baithing suits for the girls for our rest day. I got both of these at Disney Store and they weren't that pricey at all! And they came today already! I hope Morgan's fits, she has been a little hard to size lately! And I hope she likes it. I KNOW Gwen will LOVE hers, it will show her belly and that has been her "thing" lately... Oye!

The finished V.I.Passholder lanyards. I think they came out pretty cute. I won't be starting an Etsy store any time soon, but hey, all it cost me was the lanyard!

Untitled
And the Girls Snacks around the World Lanyards. There are 3! One for Casey, so the girls can give it to her, when we meet up!

I have arranged for the girls to go hang out at friends houses on Saturday for a little bit, so I can pack! And I reguested our mail to be stopped.

Just trying to think of all the things that I need to do!

Oh and I ordered Garden Grocer order!

Done. Done and Done!

    These are such cute items!!! I just ordered a Minnie Mouse bathing suit, too...thought this one is probably cuter still!

    I was wondering as they got older what kinds of Tinkerbell gifts you might start doing. These are simply perfect. And your lanyard cards are awesome!! We've ordered some in the past, but your do-it-yourself ones are just as cute!!!

    Happy Saturday Everyone!

    I am getting so so so excitied!!! By this time next week we will be in the Magic Kingdom! Woo Hoo!!!

    I am patiently waiting for the girls to go to their friends houses, so I can start packing!!!! It usually takes me all weekend, pulling out what we have, assess if we are missing stuff, shopping, packing some more... But I am so excitied that it is time to actually pack!

    Andy and I have already started our traditional almost slip ups... The closer it gets the more we want to talk about it, and the easier it is to say something in front of them. Oye!

    Its sooooo close! We are 13 days out but I can't even think of anything trip related because I have conferences next week. After that I should be able to focus on our trip and ours is short, so not a ton of work to do.

    Hope you got tons done today!

    Mine are at the grandparents for the weekend, so I'm packing up a storm over here. I hope you made some good progress this afternoon!

    HI! I am back...

    So, I did get MOST things packed today. But I def feel like I over packed. DH was "helping" and I was getting tired at the end. I think I have to try and make a list tomorrow and then later in the week pull the suitcases out and see what I packed. But good news, is I am probably 75% packed (plus you know extra)

    I have to make a target run tomorrow for random stuff. But we are in pretty good shape, I think.

    Morgan and Gwen made a game to play on the plane on the way to Disney last weekend. I don't know why, they don't know about the trip, so I don't know why but they did. they have Disney on the brain, I guess.

    I also stopped Barnes and Nobles this morning, Gwen has a loose tooth and the Tooth Fairy in our house gives books. And I was out! I got a cool travel game pad and mad libs for the girls. And a dot to dot of Star Wars. It is SUPER intense with LOTS of numbers. Should be entertaining for kids and adults alike.

    August Trip
    I did realize that tomorrow is 180 days till our summer trip.... And I have NOTHING figured out! I don't even have a hotel or hotels picked out yet! I am not totally worried about restaurants this trip as I do want this to be a more relaxed trip. But I do want to grab a couple things. So, I might book Coronado for the whole week just to get some reservations in. And decide after our trip where we want to stay. I do think we would be ok staying there for part of the time. I can actually talk to the girls about it after this trip which will be nice!

    December Trip
    So, I have to "work" on Morgan and Andy on this trip. I want to fly out Thanksgiving Eve! But Morgan declared the other day that we weren't allowed to go to Disney on any more holidays. Otherwise, we could fly out Black Friday? Which would also be ok, but just makes for a shorter trip.

    :rotfl: Good luck! I can't imagine how difficult it must be keeping it a secret!
    It has been extra hard this time! May will be easier as we will have the summer trip to talk about with them.

    Ah yes, good old conferences! That will be a relief to have those done I am sure!

    Mine are at the grandparents for the weekend, so I'm packing up a storm over here. I hope you made some good progress this afternoon!
    Lucky You that you get a whole weekend off! Although, we did get to sleep in more as the girls just do there own things in the morning now!

    That is too funny.

    Good idea! But I give my boys books all the time because we order from Scholastic at least once a month in my classroom (and sometimes for their classes as well).

    I did realize that tomorrow is 180 days till our summer trip.... And I have NOTHING figured out! I don't even have a hotel or hotels picked out yet!
    Ours is 3/3. That's our departure day. I forgot to put that in my PTR. We are booked at CSR for now and I do want to make ADRs for the new CSR restaurants. So I guess I need to figure all that out. Oh and 3/4 is our FP day for May.

    December Trip

    Good luck! Oh and I just now booked POFQ for that trip. But it definitely may change.

    I love those snack around the world lanyards!

    Wow about Andy, very happy it turned out ok but that's so strange??? Does his throat bother him at all now, is it sore or scratchy or like nothing happened?

    I probably won't get over here again since I'm bad at it lately and we leave Monday, so have a wonderful trip!!

    Good Morning Everyone!

    Well, I update on the August trip... I managed to find and make 2 separate reservations for Yacht Club for the same price. But I couldn't book the whole time? Maybe I caught someone cancelling there reservation for the first half, cause I hadn't seen any Water View availability... I will take it. It may still change, but I do think we will be happiest there the whole week. And I think I can add a note about just staying in the same room? Has anyone done that?

    Since it is technically a split stay at the moment, I booked the beginning of the trip restaurants. And again, I am only half worried about these...

    I grabbed Le Cellier @ 5:45 on our arrival night. I am thinking it will be nice to show just walk over to EPCOT for dinner.

    Then the next morning I got a Cape May Cafe Breakfast @ 8:00 AM. I have wanted to meet the gang in swimwear, so this will be perfect! I do want to book dinner here as well. Does anyone know which days are crab night?

    Sunday I grabbed a Rose & Crown dinner @ 5:45. This has been on my list for awhile now too.

    And Monday, I grabbed a Tusker House lunch @ 11:20. But I need to see when they stop serving breakfast, I would like to try for a reservation that will start with breakfast and then switch over to lunch. Does anyone know? Is this to late?

    Tuesday, I grabbed a homecoming dinner reservation @ 5:40. I def want to give that another try! And an evening in Disney Spring will be nice.

    And then most importantly, I booked the Bon Voyage Breakfast @ 8:05! I was sad to cancel this last time. but this will be way more convent this way!

    The last half I do want to book Cape May Cafe Dinner & Garden Grill Breakfast?. I had wanted to do Beaches and Cream this trip but that will be down for refurb this trip. Oh Well...

    Well, that is all I have for updates for now. I do want to grab some sort of placeholder for the December trip. I don't want Disney to announce when Star Wars Land is opening before I have SOMETHING booked. once that is official. I feel like everything will be booked solid!

    Oh yay that you got reservations for the whole trip! I'd definitely try calling and seeing if they can combine it into one reservation. I suspect it's just because they seem to put out resort room availability in blocks of time, rather than just by what's available every day. Same reason I can sometimes find availability for a hotel for one week, but not just five days within that same week time frame. If they can't, I'd just ask at the front desk when you get there if you can stay in the same room. We did that at Wilderness Lodge once and they said they couldn't guarantee anything but it worked out fine. I feel like we did maybe have to go to the desk and check out one morning though and then check back in.

    Sunday I grabbed a Rose & Crown dinner @ 5:45. This has been on my list for awhile now too.
    Oh yay! We've had good meals there the last few times we've been.

    And Monday, I grabbed a Tusker House lunch @ 11:20. But I need to see when they stop serving breakfast, I would like to try for a reservation that will start with breakfast and then switch over to lunch. Does anyone know? Is this to late?
    I'm pretty sure they start serving lunch at 11 so I'd keep trying for something earlier.

    I had wanted to do Beaches and Cream this trip but that will be down for refurb this trip. Oh Well...
    We had this problem, too! I want Beaches and Cream!! :( Oh well, next time.

    Tusker house switches to lunch about 11. We had a 10:45 reservation in December. We started with breakfast. Then about 11 they moved the breakfast foods to the middle and put the lunch offerings on the outside. Once the breakfast food was gone they put more lunch offerings out. We liked being able to try both meals and discovered we preferred breakfast.:earsboy:

    Agree with above that it's too late. I'd try for a 10:45. Plus, it's cheaper to book the breakfast and hang around for lunch than to book lunch and hope there's still some breakfast hanging around.
