Oh and we do Disney Family Movie nights once a week that we will start up soon. I plan a movie night with a disney themed dinner...but this year I'm thinking of using some of the recipes from the parks.

Anyone else ?

Nothing special other than some new ears:-)))
Just wanted to say I love your ideas! your girls will beaver the moon with the dresses.
My idea is to create a riff on and advent calendar using Disney stickers,,little,toys,treats behind the windows
Coloring books with the pages numbered in a countdown
Some wee little Disney pixie dust (you don't need to use glitter) toy in their pillows for when they wake up

My hubby and I are taking my best friend and her 2 boys down with us (ages 13 & 15) so we're really excited! We're gonna have a blast! They were only ever at the Magic Kingdom for 1 day when they were young, so it will basically be a 1st time trip
We booked a room at POR, but we know that it will be VERY crowded, so we have our fingers crossed for Free Dining, and if that comes through for our dates, we plan to move over to our "home" resort POFQ and get 2 rooms. Praying for some Free Dining Pixie Dust!!!

I already know what ADR's I want to make, just gotta wait for Disney to FINALLY release the September calendar so I can put our day schedule together and of course, gotta wait for the 180 days to get here! Currently I'm 212 days out!
COME ON SEPTEMBER!!!!!!!
Hello there in Hershey! I'm in York!! Seems to be a lot of PA people heading to the world in September. Guess all great minds do think alike!!

A fellow Hershey-ite! Looks like we will be staying at the same resort at the same time too! Do you have any kids at Hershey Elem or middle school? Such a small world after all!! We are surprising the kids so shhhhh!! And we are driving down!
I can't believe there are so many of us south central pa going at the same time!

We did custom shirts and outfits and the whole shebang last time. This time I am not going all crazy. I am still deciding if we'll tell the kids as they have no idea I booked it. If we do, I thought about waiting for Easter and putting "clues" in their Easter baskets. I'll probably make their autograph books again. I saw a lady on Etsy has iron on decals for shirts...might get some of those. Don't know what we'll do for countdown as it really depends on if and when we tell the kids.

I am not going to make them myself, but I would love to have some made for when we attend MNSSHP. I was thinking of a Jack-o-latern with the pumpkin in the shape of a MH.

I will be making our costumes for MNSSHP. The 2 boys will be knights and DH and I will be the king and queen. I love Halloween at Disney and we just love to go in costume. I have done matching shirts for previous trips but not this time.

I don't usually make any special clothing, however this year I am going to attempt appliquing a character on to a tank top. I also am in the beginning stages of making a bag to take into the parks - Disney themed of course. I made one last time we went and I got a lot of complements on it, however it just was not quite large enough. It did have a cross body padded strap which worked very well. This time I'm making an "easy on your back" bag with a Minnie theme.

I'm also thinking of making one with a Cruella deVil theme for Villains night!

Smile Can't wait!!!!

Going down in early Sept. for 2 weeks. soon we will be able to make ADR's for dining!!! Then I guess we have to wait till July to do online checkin now that you can do it 60 days out. If it works on the web site. I noticed that many people still have trouble doing it online. Last year we did too so i just called POP to do it directly. when we got there the room was ready at 10am!!! We love POP.
