Good Morning everyone! Goals for today include: finish autograph book/books and start t-shirts.

DH told me last night we don't have the mini hole punch I was counting on using, so I may have to hand punch the pages. Either that or run by Staples. Not sure which option I will choose.

I hope to have pictures later tonight to show I made "some" progress today. I'm just over 2 weeks on my count down and trying not to be in panic mode, which is getting hard. I feel I have SO much to do!

Good Luck with the goals. It's all about baby-steps....at least that is what I am told!

Looks like Oct is going to be busy. Welcome to the new members who will be joining us!

New to the this thread

Back in July I got a great code for free dining during our fall break. My dh and I had already decided we had to much stuff to do around the house and dh needed a new work truck and we just put our two older kids in braces. But I told him it was such a great deal let me put down a deposit just in case we can find a way to make it work. In the past we always take a year to pay for a Disney trips and this only gave us right at 2 months.
Well time for final payment came and I called Disney and the nice cm said we can give you a couple more weeks and then cancel just in case you change your mind. Well last week my Dad called to see if my husband would come and build a deck onto his house. He said he would pay for our Disney trip plus labor! I couldn't believe it. He knows how bad our 5 year old wants to go. SO we are offically going to Diney Oct 16-23 and staying at POP. We are so excited. Plus my husband got a truck and the things on the house list are getting done. I am so happy and can not wait. Now that I know for sure I am busting at the seams to tell the kids. But we are not telling them, we have been telling them that we would probably head to the beach so we have decided to stick with that till they see the Disney World sign.

By the way have the I told you I have the best DAD in the world

Only 14 days until my Disneymoon!!! I really need to make our t-shirts...I think I'm just scared of the project. I've never done it before! I did manage to pre-wash the shirts over the weekend and purchase the transfer paper. I was going to take my designs to Staples and have them printed, but I read a few DISers had trouble with Staples saying the Disney pics were copyrighted. Wish me luck with my transfers!!

Pixie dust for you and your family. Most viruses last 7 days...so that means you will have one day left to pack!

Oct 17 - Oct 25th

We will be surprising (or trying to keep it a surprise) our children 8 and 5 with another trip to Disney - we so enjouy the Halloween Party - they have been watching the videos on youtube of this year's party and keep begging to go - my daughter insisted on writing a letter to Mickey to ask him for tickets since of course that is the only way you can be invited

Have I said lately how excited I am?! The whole family is getting wound up for the trip.
Every day my DGD2 has been saying- "I can't wait to see Snow White...Mickey...Minnie...Jasmin" Then yesterday she was playing with her Barbie Castle, and she says, :I can't wait to see Princess Barbie"!! It was so funny.
Did I say I was getting excited yet?

I'm in the same boat. I have had our tickets in the "cart" 3 times and then cancelled the order. Can't make up my pea-pickin' mind!

Guess what?? Tomorrow I can check-in online!!!

Well by doing will call you miss out on the pre order discount. I believe the only thing that justifies an advance order is buying the tickets at least a day in advance. I say call every so many days and see what the ticket availability is and as long as they don't say they are really limited then wait until you get down there and have a good idea of the weather and buy them then. That is my plan anyway. I don't know what the weather will be like 3 1/2 weeks from now so i'm too nervous to buy just yet. I'll also be there for 10 days so i'll be able to choose from a couple different nights and will just check the weather and pick the best option.
