What a fabulous birthday! Massage AND a mani/pedi AND the Disney gifts? AND a PICNIC ... then DINNER ... with CUPCAKES? This is for your DH:

Even after such a fabulous day, I understand your getting upset. I don't know what it's like, but it has to be difficult for you, knowing that he's leaving soon. Please thank him for his service for our country - it is very much appreciated. Thank you, too.

I'll be interested to know what you think of TL. DH and I have been considering doing one of the water parks on our next trip. Hope you both enjoy the couples massage. What a great way to spend some down time together!

Aww thanks it was a wonderful birthday. We had a great time at BB last time. I think TL will be as fun.

Hope you have fun at 50's. That was the one ADR DH convinced me to give up for our "free day." I'm totally jealous that you're getting to go!

Ok I lied I didn't post pictures of the folder yesterday. I forgot that Disney movies were being released, so instead we had to drive to the store and get them and well then we had to watch them. No we didn't watch them all, just no enough time in one day.

I got and interesting call from MIL this morning and she might want to join us on our Disney trip . I am not close to MIL, we have an ok relationship. DH is also not very close to MIL she is a bit... well controlling. MIL wants to come visit before DH leaves and had no idea we were going to Disney until she called this morning and wanted to come visit the same week we are leaving, so I had to tell her. Just what we need, more guest to join us on this trip. I am pretty sure Dh would not let that happen. We will see what happens.

I will post pictures of the folder today. I am very exited how it came out.


Day 8
October 11th

We are going back to Epcot. We don't have any ADR's plan. Now let me tell you we still have 4 CS and 2 TS credits left and I just don't know where I am going to fit more eating. We will probably end up using some CS this day, but we have to keep in mind the F&W festival will be going on and we love those pastries in France. We will probably end up leaving Epcot early and hoping to DDD to watch a movie or go back to DQ.

Disney trip binder

Ok as promise here are the photos of my almost completely finish binder.





The first divider says plans. On the left every pocket has a park. I will put our touring plan and schedule for the day there. The other two parks are in the back pockets.



Budget



WDW resort info



ADRs



Transportation



MK



Epcot



AK



HS



Universal. I still have to buy two pockets to add the daily stuff for each of their parks. It will go under this section.

And there is one more divider that says everything else that for some reason the picture is not uploading.

Here is how I put together my folder.
I order the folder from the Disneystore.com you can customize it. Cost including shipping was $25 I use a discount code.
Then I choose the images and print them out, laminated them and added the tabs.

I also went shopping today and I found something really cute and exiting for our trip. I'll post pictures tomorrow.

Congratulations on having the WDW portion paid in full!

Uhhh did I read that right? MIL wants to join you? From everything I've read about your DH, I agree with you 100% - I just don't see him letting her join in. Make sure you keep us updated on the details of that little snafu.

LOVE the binder! Very cool! I had no idea you could order them and have them customized. The last two trips, I've just done a basic white binder and added my own plain divider pages. Yours is really a keepsake, though.

Can't wait to see pics of your latest shopping trip!

Day 9

Ok DH has been gone a few days now and he will be gone for about month. For security reasons I can't really give any details or post any dates, that is why you will hear of things after they happen. I am heartbroken that he is gone . We have done this before, but every time is always different since this was kind of last minute it has been a little harder to grasp the concept that he is actually going to be gone for such a long time again. D-day is getting closer and I am worry that the only thing I am going to be thinking the whole trip is that he is leaving. On the bright side I will have so much extra time this month to get caught up in the guides reading and preparing for our trip.

DH so cute, before he left he put digital copies of our disney movies in his iPad to watch while he is away. I am sure the brainwashing of making love Disney has worked!

So the MIL news aren't good, before I could even talk to DH I got an email form her it was her tickets confirmation for their flight to Orlando . Once DH heard about it he was upset, but he does want to see them before he leaves and we love FIL. I guess we are kind of stuck with it, however we are not changing any of our plans for them. They can join us or stay back. They will join us the 13th and leave with us.

Wait it gets better on top of it all they are expecting to stay in our hotel room. Of course that is were I draw the line. That is not happening they can get their own room (they can afford it).


Day 9
October 12th


This is our last day at Disney . Don't you hate it when it ends? ugh. This will be an early morning we have to get ready for our photo session. The location I think I am going to keep it a secret until our trip report. After that we are going to the MK and we have reservations for lunch at the Liberty Tree Tavern. The rest of the day We will just hang out at the MK and soak it all in to last until next time. We have to go back to the room and pack to leave early in the morning to Universal.

That was my same reaction to the MIL thing! I didn't know you could customize the binders either until I started looking for one for our trip. Here is the link to the Disney store there are a few other movies binders. I did the divider pages and it didn't take too much time. Just got the images from the internet and downloaded walt font. If you are looking for a cheaper option Waltmart has some binders now for back to school, there were some Minnie and Mickey ones that were cute.

Disney Shopping

Ok so yesterday I went to hallmark to buy a birthday gift and I found something great for our trip.







It will be great for our drive down. It was $12.96 before tax.

I also got new shoes for all the walking we will be doing .



And I finally got the guide I order a while ago.

Love the binder!! I hope your in-laws make reservations for a different room. Love that cup. I didn't know Hallmark had those. You know I am going to totally go look this weekend at the Hallmark store to see if they have them. I always get new sneakers for Disney. Very cute the ones you got.

Love the binder and the guidebook. I think I have that downloaded on my kindle fire. LOL!!

I can totally sympathize with you on the MIL thing. We spent exactly 1/2 a day with my MIL at Disney. It was miserable. She complained because it was hot. Her feet hurt, etc. Anything to complain about she did. I swore then that we would only do Disney alone. LOL!!

Good for you for standing your ground on the hotel though. That's just rude to assume that you are going to stay in the same room as someone else.....
