No to both. We are only having the clumsy waiter and a caricature artist. No Disney characters. We are going with an outside photographer (Randy Chapman)...and not doing anything with disney photography.

Thanks for reading!

Programs, Room Block, Shippping

Yes! It feel soooo soon.

I sort of figured out how to make the mickey fan programs in a way I like. I'm planning on just taking all the stuff there and making them while I'm down there. I used ribbon to cover the entire stick. I also used youtube to figure out how to tie a lil' bowtie so that it is not crooked. I'll try and post a pic this weekend.

Apparently we have reached the required minimum so that we get a free night! Yay. Unfortunately, this means that we will no longer need to stay at the campsites at Fort Wilderness. We're having a slumber party there one night for the kids, but other than that...we'll be staying 3 nights at the Polynesian (booked with our 2 free nights promotion and 1 free night due to rooms booked) and 5 nights at BLT - fireworks view studio room.

Our planner's admin assistant changed. I really loved the first one. It's just a bit of a wrench in things when you know that someone has helped you with all the little things along the way...and then all of a sudden that person no longer works for Disney. I'm sure the new person has been briefed lol!

I emailed to ask where to send my dress/stuff today...here is the response:
Shipping to: YOUR NAME

Guest checking into resort on XX/XX/XX (list the date of your checkin)

Also put a phone number on the label in case they need to get a hold of you for any reason



I would suggest that you ship anything you need to in order to be able to take your dress on the plane with you. I would advise you to fly with your dress because you never know what could happen during the shipping process and I would hate for it to get lost in the mail or damaged. Just something to keep in mind before you ship it.

the dress

No, sorry.....I don't even know which designer it is. I tried to find it once...but I never did. There must be a tag on it somewhere. For some reason I think it might be DaVinci something or other.

update nov. 2

We had another guest cancel. Our numbers are at 20 adults, 3 infants and 3 children.

Since we had a couple hundred dollars to play with, the extra person savings meant we could also include a DP photo shoot! This is great because the flash I have on my camera is no the best..and I won't have to stress so much about having good pics for the DP.

Also..we think we are changing the programs to a black backing...just thinking about what colour to do the bowtie!

We are leaving in 3 days. We are driving for 9 hours to Minneapolis and spending the night. Our flight leaves Saturday at 7am ish. Should be at Disney sometime Saturday...checking into the Poly for two nights before heading over to Bay Lake Tower!

I can hardly believe the time is almost here! 10 more days!

We are leaving tomorrow!

It's finally here. I'm leaving knowing that there will be at least a few small things that I will forget...but I know DFTW will make it all awesome in the end! Should be checking into our two free nights at the Poly on Sat!!!!!

Thanks for following along..I sort of stopped posting at a number of times!
