We are patiently awaiting the arrival of our Mickey Mail, but since my mom booked this trip as a TA through her host agency, it has to be sent to them first.

Also waiting for my Magical Ribbons so I can start shopping for outfits...I'm coordinating!

Yay!! Very happy that Disney is safe for you Having all of your plans suddenly up in the air is a horrible feeling.

DH has thrown me a curve ball this week too- he walked in on Monday night and casually announced that his company is (once again) considering closing his office here in Colorado. If they do, he will either have to become a remote employee working from home (which he really doesn't want to do), or we would have to move to San Francisco (assuming they offer relocation benefits, which they probably would).

We went through this a year ago, and I was in a total frenzy for a whole month waiting for the "decision" to be made by tptb, and it actually felt a little anti-climactic when they decided to keep the office after all. I think I'm handling it a little better this time around, but DH isn't all of the sudden! He is such a ball of stress that he has been impossible to be around for 48 hours, lol! I'm just choosing to focus on Disney instead. With only 5 weeks left until we leave (yay!!!!), NOTHING is going to interfere with this trip! (Hopefully I didn't just jinx it, ha!)

I'm hoping for Mickey Mail soon- our mail seems to always be a little slow here, but maybe by this weekend at least Can't believe we are almost under a month already, where has the time gone???

Sometimes I think because I have overplanned and counted down for this trip for so long (and probably won't be back for at least several years), I just think it's destined to happen. I made the mistake of reading trip reports of people who went in Feb and Mar and ended up sick.

Maybe I should stop planning anything and just not think about it until the day we leave. LOL
OMG, me too. After all the counting down, and sooo much money, this is all I can think of too. I have been online for the past 2 days researching which hand sanitzers and disinfecting sprays kill norovirus, and everything else. I just now ordered Clorox spray for the room after finding out Lysol DOESnt kill noro, and ordered clorox hand sanitizer spray too since thats the only one they say kills it. NOW I feel prepared and not going to read anymore

Well, I hope he calms down enough to enjoy your trip! I hate uncertainty, and there's a lot of it in the military.

Hi everyone! We are joining you in April! We haven't been to the World since August 2011, were planning to return August 2013 but I couldn't wait that long!! We will be arriving on my birthday, April 2!!! So excited! And we got our Mickey mail yesterday which makes it even more exciting!!

We are a bit nervous about the Spring Break crowds, but it's not our first trip so we are prepared for anything! And what a better way to spend Spring Break and my birthday!!

20 days to go!! Hope everyone has a great time!!!

Thanks for the tip!! We had this last year on our trip and it was horrible!! I will be getting the Clorox hand sanitizer now! Do you know what stores have it and if the younger ones can use it?

I think we'll get a KTTW. I wrote to WL IPO asking if i could request that my wife get a white bracelet when she arrives on Apr 24. The IPO (promptly) replied that they are not allowed to order any bracelets for April.

I don't know if other resorts might have different rules.

LOL...so I am not alone! I think I might need to get some of that Clorox spray, too. Then I am with you, no more reading about it!

Does anyone know how (or even if you can) to move around the parks/ reservations / activities under My Disney Experience so you can put them in the order you actually plan on doing them????

I still have your dates and resort on Post 1. But I don't have any ADRs or PTR listed for you. So glad things have worked out so wonderfully for you!

Well, you can take care of the room but think of all the things you touch in the parks. You need to make frequent trips to the bathrooms to wash with soap and water to really do the job right. I just read that restaurant menus have one of the highest rates of e coli -- eww! I think my new habit will be to visit the ladies' room after ordering my food instead of when we arrive at the restaurant.
