I'm the same way! I actually will probably "sleep" on the couch the night before we leave so I don't wake DH up every time I jump up to check something in the middle of the night.

Also, as I'm adding more times, I'm noticing a LOT of similar ADRs so be sure to check and see who you might be dining with!!








Nikki, I noticed my Chef Mickey ADR on 9/1 is showing up at the end, but it's at 7:40 am (probably a typo by me when I first posted it). Would you mind changing it next time you edit the list?


I've moved away from obsessing about ADRs and touring plans and am now obsessing about packing. I really want to get our suitcases out and do a trial packing session, but I think DH and the kids will think I've officially lost it if I do that

I called DME yesterday to ask for 2 more luggage tags, in case we end up having to gate check our carry-ons. I've had to do that the last few times I've flown. I figure with 4 of us, we should be able to put at least one carry-on on the flight (the one with our swimsuits and stuff), but I'm packing the other carry-ons with a possible gate check in mind. I'm fine with Delta and DME taking care of the bags as long as I don't have to pay for it and as long as I can keep the swimsuits with me, since that'll probably be our first stop when we get to CSR!

Oh, and I had a friend make a pillowcase dress for DD that looks like Lilo's. She's mailing it to me today. DD adores Lilo & Stitch and I'm so excited to see her in her Lilo dress. I'll post a pic when I get it

For all you other Pooh sized gals. I just got an email from Lane Bryant that they are having a 50% off sale today only. noon-midnight online and 5 to close in stores (code funfridaylb). Has to be the Lane Bryant brand though and not the other brands they sometimes have (like levi, 7s, nike, etc). They do have shorts and sundresses on clearance and then you get an additional 50 off so it makes it quite affordable ($15 for a pair of shorts for instance). I'm debating on ordering shorts to see how they fit, but I hate ordering clothes online. I usually don't shop there because they are too expensive, but I am on the mailing list for great sales like this.

So I decided that moving down to a moderate wouldn't be worth it. ASMu however would save us over $600. I know it would be smaller and less romantic but saving $600+ would sure make me feel better. But my husband will probably not go for it. He wants to stay in the Contemporary so he feels he is already compromising on a non-view AKL room. I wonder where he got his champagne taste...
Ahhh, I see. Then I would definitely stick with AKL over a moderate. Big decision!! Let us know what you decide!

Yeah, I've done that, too. It's kind of like the same reason I can't start buying Christmas gifts too early...it never stops! So I end up packing and puttering around until the last minute anyway.

I keep thinking that my saving grace this time is that DS and I are leaving home on the 23rd, taking the train to Manhattan at 4:15pm. I think I'll go down the weekend before by car (while DS is at his dad's) and take 1 suitcase that has the majority of our things. That way when we take the train on the 23rd, we only need to schlep DS's backpack, the small carry-on and my purse. This living apart thing definitely makes planning a little more complex!

Another kink in the plan that I just realized...I need to call now and book a bikini wax at my place in SoHo (Strip Ministry of Wax...fabulous). After going there, I refuse to get waxed at home...they're that good!

We will be staying at POR in a Royal Suite (2 rooms) from August 5-9 with DDP and we bought Photo Pass Plus (really excited about that!)

Aug 4 (staying offisite) day at BB
Aug 5 DHS then ADR at Ohana and on to MK

Aug 7 AK with ADR at Tusker House and then to EP
Aug 8 OFF day with ADR @ Fulton's Crab House
Aug 9 MK all day with ADR @ CP for breakfast and LTT for dinner

We are paying for 2 TS meals out of pocket, but I am treating after working many extra shifts this summer.

We have had a rough week here and are so needing this vacation! Two weeks and counting!

I have started ordering them in a couple of different sizes and just returning the ones that don't fit to the physical store. Really made online shopping for clothes more comfortable for me and I'm now likely to do it much more often. I have also now discovered Amazon offers free return shipping on shoes - so orderd 4-5 pairs and am returning those I don't want! (I just want one at the end - but need to try for size, fit, and comfort). Right now I am waiting for 1 more pair to arrive but have already vetoed all but 1, which is my favorite for now.

Welcome!! Saw you live in Cincy - spent Labor Day weekend there last year to go to Kings Island - it was great (and I had a ton of fun shopping at the Cincy Outlet Mall nearby).

Now that I am finally done resort switching it is probably safe to add me to the resort list

We're
8/26 - 9/2 Fort Wilderness Cabins

34 days to go!! We're at Royal Pacific at Universal for 3 nights before Disney. I am really looking forward to that too. It's a totally different experience but Universal is a blast and we've grown to enjoy it as much as Disney

LOL! Yes, my DD and DS both work at Kings Island! I also enjoy the outlet mall, but I am sooooo ready to get out of here and live in the Disney bubble for a few days! Thanks for you kudos to Cincy...Lived here all my life and I sorta love it!

More likely at the food court or pool. We are renting a car as my DH hates waiting for the buses.

I've been scouring the web and stores for a small, lightweight "wallet" to hold our room keys and photopass cards around our necks. This is the closest thing I can find, but you have to buy 10 and I'd only need 3 or 4 (DD may want one to not feel left out)

http://www.staples.com/Staples-Crede...3#revs_content

I really want something small and light. And cheap. Anyone have any other suggestions? Or want to go halfsies with me on a set of 10?
