planning tools

I am using Microsoft OneNote to plan my trip. In that program, I created a special notebook to keep track of my disney trip planning. I have pages for my grocery shopping lists, a page where I copied all the park hours for that week, a page where I keep track of reservations for dinner. I use Google Calendar to block out time for the weeks planned activities and reservations. I am starting to fill in which parks are best to go to at which times. I've blocked out when to slip into HS during Early Magic Hours to try to get into Toy Story Mania. We couldn't get near the place on our last trip Oct 08. I have bought my 6 yr. old daughter her dress for the tea party at the Grand. I bought a new swim suit. I also bought a safari shirt that I can wear for dinner at Sanaa or Boma.

I have pre-existing Word document packing lists for Disney that I've used and edited over and over the past 10 years. Anytime I discover something new that needs to be added to the list, I add it knowing that it will never be left out again. I remove things from previous years that are no longer needed (like diapers). I will email my mother-in-law a copy of the packing list that will apply to her and my niece who are joining us from Texas. They're flying, we're driving.

I am so glad there are others out there whose every word out of their mouths inevitably seems to be... ."at Disney World...."

The only thing I haven't been able to completely figure out is how I am going to deal with my very curly hair with all that humidity. This will be our first visit to Orlando in July. We've always gone in March, April, October or November. It wasn't really overly humid at any of those times. Anybody have any thick curly hair frizz control ideas?

That sounds like fun!

Hey - where do you order the cakes from? Have you ever had one from there? I was wondering how good they were and how much they cost. We will be celebrating DD's birthday during our next visit to WDW and wanted to have a cake for her. I wonder if the restaurant will do something for her. I guess I should contact them directly.

The restaurants should be able to do a birthday cake for you. I know that you can order bigger fancier cakes in advance. You need to call the Disney Dream Makers. You can find some of them at the Disney Florist. Also try calling the Bakery in MK. I know that there is a number to call because I saw it on Food Network. Try calling 407-WDISNEY and ask. That's the main trip planning number for non-DVC. If you're DVC, try calling member services.

Thanks for the great advice/help! I will check into that info. I would love for her to have a chocolate cake brought out to her during dinner. She would love that!

Howdy. I haven't been on the Dis in forever. But my sister and I are going to WDW for my birthday in July. :D I'm way excited. I made the last of our ADRs last night and we're set to go. We'll be there July 1st - July 5th. We're eating at all of my favourite places and I'm way excited for it. :D

We've never been during July 4th, so we're a little nervous about that. We have been in July, but not in a long time. We usually go in January. Why did I have to be born so close to the 4th?

To order any custom bakery cake, call the Walt Disney World Resort at (407) 827-2253. Requires advanced reservations.

I found that information on the website. They have some really awesome cake designs.

Oh, don't say that! I can only imagine what the 4th of July is like at WDW! I bet that the fireworks are absolutely amazing - more than normal! You will have a terrific time!

The fireworks should be worth it. We decided to spend the 4th at EPCOT. We figure we'll be nice and mellow after our trip around World Showcase. Mmmm fiesta margaritas and a few Grey Goose slushes.
