The online Disney store has lots of water bottles on sale. I got us each one to put in the Easter baskets. I got Minnie for DD, Mickey for DS, Tinkerbell for me and Grumpy for DH http://www.disneystore.com/grumpy-wa...25418/1000350/
I was pleased with the size when they arrived - and I'm hoping the cover/strap are good for carrying them around the park.

I carry a messenger bag with all of my Disney pins on it. I generally get a drink on the way to the bus stop in the morning and it lasts me a few hours. If the reusable mug gets cumbersome for me, I clip it with a carabiner (sp?) clip to my bag. (You can get these at any hardware or sports store). You can't get refills at the parks, but we use the DDP, so at lunch, I pour what I don't drink into my reusable mug. More liquids for the afternoon. The resorts are large, and after a long day at the parks, walking to and from your resort room to get a refill at the drink station is a pain. If you clip your mug to your bag, it's always with you! I do, however, agree with the PP that the mugs will spill. I'm used to carrying a drink with me all of the time at work, so it's not a big deal for me to keep a hold of mine. My DD does not take her mug...EVER, as a teen, that's her prerogative. I bought us sealing mugs last year when we went in September. They didn't work for us, I didn't use it once, since I felt weird pouring my pop into my sealable drink from my reusable Disney one at the drink station...LOL! ENJOY YOUR TRIP!

If you want me to list this in the first post, you'll need to tell me your dates. I don't have tickers turned on. My computer doesn't like them.

I am still unsure on what i want to do. I guess I will have to bring it w/me and see how it works out. I am planning on just getting water in the parks. Not a soda drinker. Also bringing the crystal light single packs to add for flavor it I need more.
Thanks for your time and kind words

Oh well I'll be excited for our ME stuff.
I'm glad you posted this!! We have three Disney reservations, the first is a Magic Your Way with dining and park hoppers, then a Dream cruise, then we're back for two days with a room only reservation (we bought extra park ticket days on the MYW reservation, since we have up to 14 days to use them).

My husband even called Disney's reservation number and they told him to keep looking for the Mickey Mail. We received the mail for the first two, but not the room only reservation so we were getting worried!

We have 2 reservations. The first is a package with park hopper tickets, resort and the magic extras. The second is just for our second resort. We received the mickey mail for our first reservation over two weeks ago but we've had nothing for our second. Does this mean that we won't get any mail for our second reservation? This is our first visit from the UK and I was starting to get a bit worried as we leave on the second. So should I print a copy of our emailed itinerary or is it possible that I'll still receive the vouchers through the post?

- Thanks!
