15 days until my next trip!

As for last-minute advice: if you're not already, then start taking vitamins at least a couple of days before the trip. Build up your immune system so you're less likely to catch a cold on the plane or at the parks. Prepare your packing list in advance and go through it to be sure you packed everything. Bring two pairs of your most comfortable, supportive shoes for long days of walking.

When you do get to WDW, don't forget to be present in the moment and enjoy!

Take screenshots of your fastpasses and ADRs because things sometimes go wonky.

Next trip in 8 days for EPCOT F&W.
Do not over-schedule yourself. Plan in some downtime to relax. Take a break and enjoy yourself with FP+ and ADRs you can find yourself running from one place to the next and not enjoy the time/park/trip/whatever is happeninig in between.

25 days away!
Being very fair skinned, I make sure I spray down with sunscreen before leaving for the airport! I can't bring it in the carry on and don't want to wait for ME to deliver my bags at the resort!
And anything that could potentially leak gets put in zip lock bags.
And I wear my tightest shorts at the beginning if the trip - saving my looser ones for after I've eaten too much!

LOL about the shorts!

I aim to walk enough each day at WDW that I at least break even with my weight. It worked last trip, and will do my best again this time. Last trip averaged around 11 miles of walking per day, ranging from 8 miles to 16 miles.

LaurenT- I just got back from Disney last weekend. I was able to bring sunscreen in my carry-on. As long as it is the spray version, and not the kind you have to put on by hand, they allow it. At least they did for me.

Some good tips from people on here. My countdown consists of rereading Walt's biography before each trip. It helps remind me why I love that place and helps me appreciate it even more when I'm there.

I'll go with the obvious ones and say not to forget your magic band, magical express voucher, etc...

I think the OP is already at WDW now! Maybe when she returns she'll have advice for the rest of us!
