Evening Snowbirds! I love reading the posts from those of you on your trip or just coming home! Thanks! I really want to pack more shorts and capris after reading about how warm it is but none of the stores have them out yet! Perhaps a trip to the mall is in order next weekend? Thanks forthe JCP tip- I'm 5'3 and it's really tough finding capri's that don't look like pants.

Tomorrow I'm making Tshirts for my sister's family and one for me. I also need to make my LGMH. I have clear contact paper that should work to "laminate" it. I'll post a pic of it attached to my bag when I get it done this week.

11 more days...well today is jyust about over so let's go ahead call it 10!!!

I have been checking the weather several times a day. I was a little worried the other day accuweather (has a 15 day forecast) was calling for highs in the 50's for the beginning of my trip. The have raised it to upper 60's for the first three days, then into the 70's. I feel a lot better with this

That's what I'm counting on. We've been so many times at this time of year - a lot of our pictures have hardly anyone else in them, and we could walk on just about anything whenever we wanted. I'll cross my fingers with you!

Yeah, these weather reports are making me a bit nervous! I'm all for wearing capris and long sleeved t's all trip, but I don't want to be shivering watching the fireworks either. And I REALLY want the boys to get to try out the new Pirate Pool!! (yeah, whine...whine...I'll be at Disney, I better just suck it up!!)

Thanks....
We leave in 5 days!!!!!
I was going to print out touring plans, but I decided against it. We know which rides we want to do (mostly rides for our DD) and that's it. As for deciding park days, we have to since we don't have park hoppers. It's just one park per day for us!

Yea! So glad to hear that crowds are light at the end of January. Anything will be better than the summer crowds!

Plus even if it is more crowded, it won't be so horrifically hot and humid, so it will still be better.

Exactly! I only know what it's like to go in the summer! In 2002, we actually went in March and I still remember it being very hot. I don't remember the crowds at all....maybe it's because I was pregnant with my DD! I didn't ride any of the big rides (ok, I rode Splash Mtn, but I was given the ok from my doc).

I am hoping that the crowds will be lighter than even last January. I read so many posts awhile back where lots of people(due to the economy) were cancelling their trips for '09-----I think the 4/3 deal helped some people, but from what we've been hearing, it's not enough.

I don't remember who posted about wearing capris and long-sleeve t's, but that's what I will probably do-and bring a jacket--it does cool off in the evening--but when you are walking around, you warm up--especially at HS, where there is no shade during the day---I always get red from the sun right on my nose and chest-where my T-shirt vees- from watching the street people there!! Even in January!! Not like a sunBURN, just enough to make it red! But, I will bring a jacket with a hood for the kids. AAHHHH --I can't wait!!!

Are any other snowbirds driving down like us? We're leaving on the 22nd and will arrive in WDW on the 23rd. I'm thinking I may even stick a LGMH on our van just to keep in the spirit of things.

Also, for those of you who printed off your t-shirt designs from the DISigners, I need help. I don't want to sound like a moron, but how do you get the actual design? I see the DISigners posting the requested DISigns on their threads, but how do you then get them print to your transfer paper? Is it as simple as a cut/paste type thing?
TIA.

Yes, I'm not going to get too concerned about the weather until we are closer. Those 15 and even 10 day forecasts are never right and they always change. Now if we get within a few days of leaving and it is calling for highs in the 50's, then I will start to panic!

I totally agree! I am still keeping my fingers crossed that it will get back up to the low 70's during the daytime. I can handle wearing a sweatshirt at night, but would like the days to be sunny and warm. DD says that even if it is only in the 60's - she is wearing her shorts and flip-flops!

Yes, I can handle sweatshirts as night, but really don't want to have to wear them all day!
