Do you make them smaller so they can fit!!! I have my passporter but I'm not sure I will take it into the parks that day ...I'm going to have a notebook file to help keep me organized!!

I will have arrived at AKV, checked in, and found my Studio ready and waiting for me. Then off to the pool or MK!

Ah. A girl after my own heart! To me, flip flops are the most superior of all footwear. I love them so much!

I know I should be excited because its almost time to go, but I can't help but think...." what do I do when I get home?" Does anyone else feel this way? I'm so happy for everyone who is down there and who is going in the near future. It's been a great ride and I'm so glad you guys kept this thread going for us January Snowbirds. Even my boyfriend makes me check on here and see if there's anything new going on. He even makes me sign in so he can look at my ticker everyday to see how many days are left. A great big thanks to everyone who posted here, I got so many planning ideas and it really helped build the excitement, even though I didn't actually post to this thread, you can be sure that I've been reading everday! So, a great big thanks and good luck to everyone on this thread!!! Have a magical time everyone!!!
I'm always sad when I come home from any vacation. I decided that I'm going to make a scrapbook of this trip (which I've never done) and I'm definately going to do a TR. I'm so glad you've been reading along with us all this time! Have a great trip (and I hope you come back engaged!).

I did the same thing. That way, if we're in line and starting to get hungry, we can pull them out and decide where to go. I don't know how to make them small enough for my passporter though.

I will be scrapbooking for the first time for this trip. I'm kinda nervous especially now that you guys already have started yours! I didn't think I had anything to start!

I only have the title page done so far too. I think I am going to put pictures of the Christmas morning surprise on the first few pages.

What a good idea! I'll definately have to put pictures of our surprise in my scrapbook. I haven't even bought an album yet! I'll probably do that once I get back. My mom has a lot of papers and supplies, so I'll be heading to her house so she can show me what to do. I don't know the first thing about scrapbooks except that I love them!

Yeah I make them small.... I leave off the drinks stuff.... only keep the yummy food info on them..... last time I reduced them on the copy machine and then glued them onto index cards...laminated them and then punched a hole in the corner and put them all on a ring so that I had them all together..... I have since lost that ring so I have to do it all over....

Watch for sales at places like Michaels, Joann's, or Hobby Lobby!! Last week Hobby Lobby had all their scrapbooking stuff 50% off and I got a huge album for only $15.00 now I'm thinking I need to already purchase more pages. But I have to find my HObby Lobby coupon first!!

Sunday's paper also has ads with coupons from Michael's and Joann's and just so you know Michael's will honor any competitors coupons so you can use quite a few within a week.

Yes I'm well versed on how to save money while scrapbooking LOL!!

For each girl I have set out 4 PAIRS OF SHOES! sandals, flips, crocs and runners. MY DH will have a coranary if I pack all those shoes! I don't know which ones to pack and which to leave! Runners are a must, but I can't decide which of the others to bring - sandals, crocs or flips? They are ALL PINK so colour isn't an issue.

For those of you who have had girls at Disney before, what did you take?
You could probably choose between the flips and sandals since they are similar. That would at least get it down to three. I'm having my girls bring sneakers, croc flips and croc mary janes (assuming they come). I am bringing 4 pairs and told my DH that last night. It's only b/c of the cruise. I need nicer black shoes for dinner.

Oh yes! I may have to do that. Plus I'm going to start planning the next trip. The seed has been planted thanks to the cruise bounceback deal!
I will also scrapbook. I did a disney album that includes two trips in it. This will have to be it's own book. Problem is I'm only up to year 3 of DD7's and year 1 of DD5. Plus I have last year's trip that I haven't done. I bought all the supplies of course!
