Ugh. Tell me about it.

Here is what I still have to do (and WHY am I procrastinating?! 33 days!)

Buy BodyGlide and Moleskin
Find children's and adult-sized ponchos
Call the kennel to confirm my dog's reservation
Order DS's bday cake for Chef Mickey's
Make/find Halloween outfits for DH and DS
Call the rental company for the house and ask them to leave us directions to the parks, as MapQuest says it will take anywhere from 25 to 43 minutes to get there!
Stop mail and paper
Make index cards with park plans/ADR numbers

Here is what I HAVE done!

Bought & received park tickets
Bought & received MNSSHP tickets
Bought plane tickets
Reserved rental car
Reserved and paid off rental house
Made my Halloween costume, and bought DD's
Bought "Mickey" gifts and wrapped them for each child
Made ADR's
Made itinerary for what parks/what days, and a list of our must-do's and height restrictions, etc.
Printed park maps
Started on packing lists
Bought cheap ponchos to cover stroller
Bought park bag (Baggallinni )
Bought soft-sided cooler to store under double stroller
Ordered a custom outfit for each child from etsy (bday shirt for DS, and Minnie zebra-striped pillowcase dress for DD)
Ordered anniversary mouse ears for me & DH
Bought hand sanitizer wipes, first aid kit, and glowsticks from Dollar Tree


What am I missing?

I don't do an incredible amount of planning, but i wish i did to keep me busy!

Our room is booked (will be paid in full by cash when we get there since the cost is being split between 4 people)

Plane tickets bought

MNNSHP tix bought and recieved

ME set up and tags recieved

Don't do ADRs so thats one less worry (im cheap, sit down dinners are a rarity for me when im in WDW its mostly counter service for me).



Still 34 days out, so buying all the travel sized trinkets probably won't start happening until the 2 week mark.

The four of us STILL have to decide IF we are dressing up and as WHAT. Yeah, we are all getting together to hang out sunday so hopefully that'll be settled and we can order costumes if we have to! This is the thing thats stressing me out most right now.

Other than that, all the little things to be bought and the packing list doesn't usually get done until the last 2 weeks, week and a half because i don't want to do everything now and have nothing to tide me over later!

I haven't looked for moleskin yet, but I believe they might have it at WalMart.

BodyGlide is supposed to prevent chafing and blisters. I have heard you can find this at sports supply stores (i.e. Dick's).

I thought I got Mickey Mail today - because there was a big colorful package in the mailbox. Ended up just being a big box of tampons and pads (free samples)

...so dissappointing...

Mole Skin is sold at Walmart where they sell the shoe insoles by the pharmacy. Be sure to take some scissors to cut it though.

Body Glide can be found also be found at Sports Authority. (besides Dick's Sporting Goods) It is used to prevent chafing. Band Aid also makes a blister block. It's cheaper than Body Glide, but it's alot smaller and wouldn't work as well for the insides in the thighs.

I bought moleskin at WalMart near the pharmacy where they have the Dr Shoels foot care stuff. I've never used Body Glide, but it's for chaffing. (If your legs rub together, etc. I guess it works good.

I got a voicemail from Disney reservations last night saying they wanted to talk to me about my dining reservations. I was so worried - I've read on another thread about Disney accidentally overbooking a restaurant and calling people and telling them they can't get in. When I called them back, it turned out they were just checking to make sure that I was planning on attending MNSSHP since my ADR was at Tony's after the party started. PHEW!!
