Anyone gone the route? I can't find the magnet paper lately and if I need to order it, I need to get right on it.
This is what I thought about doing. Some of my magnets are not printed on a computer and made with my Cricut so I cant use the magnetic paper. I also might use my xyron machine to put the magnets on. I think there is a cartridge that laminates on one side and puts a magnet on the back. The Xyron stuff is kinda expensive but with the 40% off coupons from Michaels or Hobby Lobby it's not too bad.

That sounds cute. Putting our Dis name on them would be neat but I'm sure a lot of extra work for you. Plain would be just fine if you choose to do them

Thanks! That was my understanding too about the cash OOP. I would just hate for that fee to end up on our onboard account. I need to call DVC tomorrow or Friday to take care of something else so I'll ask them and report back.

I'm already printing the nametags with DIS name on them, it wouldn't take much to move things around and get the Logo and DIS name only (and not real name). We could hand them out when we pass out the lanyards. I was planning on bagging the tags per DIS member so could just drop the magnet in there.

Welcome to the board!

You'll love the people here. Not much time, but take some time to get to know some of us here! As you might expect, we're from all over the world here (even have this Crazy Canuck/Canadian on the board that some people think is obnixious). Where are you from?

We're having breakfast at Lumieres on Sunday morning at 9:00AM if you want to put faces to the names on this board.

See you in 3.5 weeks!

How About a Group Photo?

With all the suggestions being done these days, I have another to add.

Maybe at around 9:15AM, before anybody heads off to Palo etc. for brunch, we all get together at one end and squeeze us all in for one picture? We could get a cast member to snap a few pics with 1, 2 or 3 cameras and we'll email them to the gang once home.

Sound like an idea to proceed with?

OT Story

This is completely off topic, but I want to share what my DD4 said to me the other day. She was admiring my wedding ring. After saying it is pretty, she asked "Mommy, does your ring light up?". When I said it doesn't, she said (imagine slumped shoulders, pouty face) "Ohhhhh" - it was like she felt sorry for me . I am a big fan of technology, but come on :-)

I hope wedding rings never get that 'flashy'....

Congratulations on the documents and thanks The ysent Marika home with what I thought was a persription for antibiotics for the sinus infection that I was supposed to fill if she did not get over the extreme dizzyness and headache by Wednesday. Took it in to the pharmacy and they said it was instructions to call for the perscription if not better by Wednesday--but the office is closed Wednesdays! So, I just got through this morning and have been told to wait 20 minutes for tehm to make the call and then go to the pharmacy--which is right around the corner. She is more dizzy by the minute, and the headache is awful--but the other stuff is better. Sore throat better, cough lessening, no more fever and even hungry for soup. mashed potatoes, yogurt, etc.)

I have made magnets that way. They stay on "okay" but not nearly as well as the sheet magnets do. They tend to slide down (or fall off entirely) every time you open or close the door. Easy enough to fix when you are leaving teh room, but not so easy when you are going IN You just have to shut the door VERY gently

Oh, and if you want to put the work (and printer ink) into it, I think the door magnets would be great. We had similar magnets made from the lanyard nametage pattern on our last two cruises from DISsers as FE gifts You are so sweet to do all this work for everyone

How is your little guy feeling??????

This does not apply to any of the rest of you, but I have to post anyway because I am so darned proud of myself

We have been trying to figure out the best way to egt to and from the Frankfurt airport. When Dave flies I usually drop him at the train station (train goes right into the airport) or drive him down. But the train fare for all four of us would be close to 250 Euro round trip--and with no ride to the station we would have to haul all our luggage on the trams (no big deal for a small trip with one rolling bag each, but a hassle with big rolling duffles and other cruise luggage). Parking at the airport would be about the same for 15 days. We have asked about a dozen Germans (mostly Dave's co workers but also a friend, the neighbors, etc.) if there is some sort of less expensive long term parking near the airport and been told by everyone that no such thing exists. HA they were all wrong! I found it on the FRA website (in English even so I know i am reading it right). There is long term parking, it is run by the airport, they have shuttles to the terminal every 10 minutes AND it will only cost 64 Euro for the 15 days

Yes, I have such a pathetic life that I consider finding this information to be a highlight of my week (especially this week)
