Love your purchases! I always end up stocking up on new Disney tshirts right before we head down to Orlando.

And it looks like you, your mom, and your coats had a fun time at the concert!

Less than 3 weeks to go!

I'm glad someone else does the Disney tshirt shopping right before they go. Sometimes, I think, "Why am I doing this? They have t-shirts there." And yet, I do it anyway! Yep, we had a great time--those coats were all into the show!! Come on, less than 3 weeks!! Definitely getting more excited!!

Ahh. . .the cruising life!! Today (which will be Tuesday, March 26, 2013) is Castaway Cay day!! This is the place I dream about!


*Flasback pic from 2005

We will be up EARLY this morning because I want to eat breakfast and be down there and ready to be off the ship as soon as they will let us!! I don’t want to waste a minute of this day!

When we went before, we didn’t see a lot of characters. We’re definitely going to change that this time!


*Photo from AllEars

I even hope we can spot Jack Sparrow!!

We hope to just grab a spot on the family beach and swim and play all morning! D may even want to check out Pelican Plunge! This is completely new to us. . .they didn’t have that this time!


*Photo from AllEars

I figure sometime during the day, Brian will have a Konch Kooler! Love those things!

Then, it’ll be time for lunch at Cookies!


*Photo from AllEars

Not a day with much planned, except for HAVING FUN and RELAXING!!! Soooo excited for that!

Castaway Cay plans sound great. I am curious about if you have a plan for getting a good spot on the family beach? Is there a DIS strategy for that or is it just to make sure you are one of the first off the boat? Is there a specific place on the beach that is better than another or is it all good?

I don't know of a strategy. I am just hoping to be down there early and be one of the first ones off the boat. For me, as long as the sun is shining, anywhere they let me be on the beach will be terrific!! (Though, if you hear of a good strategy, let me know!! )

20 Day Countdown Party!!

Our 20 days out date fell on last Friday, March 1st. Is anyone else having a hard time believing it is already March??

That day was also Dr. Seuss Day at D’s “school”, so they got to wear pajamas to school. D’s pajamas of choice?? Lightning McQueen!!

Just because it wouldn’t be a countdown day without it, the changed refrigerator board:



Here we are posing with the countdown chart once the “20” square went up:









Even George and Woody were decked out. . .(George had to “borrow” some accessories!):



When we got home from school, D celebrated the “arrival” of his new Disney buddy. . .Wally the Walmart Truck from Cars!



That night was also the George Strait concert, so we decided to have our “party” the next day. When we woke up, we had this:





We also had Easter pictures and some shopping to do that day! That night, we were all tired, but we celebrated our “under 20” day with D’s FAVORITE meal, chicken tenders and fries:



Then we did one of D’s favorite pre-Disney activities, watched monorail videos on YouTube. We are definitely ready to be riding the monorail!!

Can’t believe we’re at 15 days!!

Mousekeeping, Magnets, and a Monkey!

Last weekend, I worked on getting a few little detail things ready. We don’t do autograph books (just because D isn’t interested), but I wanted to do a few things for our trip.

I made envelopes for Mousekeeping, TurnDown Service, and for some of the Cruise Staff:



A wonderful DIS-er on the Cruise Board (Eva) made these designs for us, and I made door magnets out of them:









I made these with my Cricut and magnetic strips (ignore the bad photography—I was trying to take them before work, and I was sleepy!!):







In addition to that, even George is READY to go!!!



So looking forward to our fun adventure!! 2 weeks from today!!

love your bags and all the new goodies for the trip! your magnets are so cool!
looks like you had a fun time at the concert! and your 20 countdown party!

can't believe you are so close to leaving! we did room service on our CC day so we didn't have to waste time in the buffet line...getting of the boat early will help you get a spot closer to the water or where ever you want to be!

I'm going to start my TR next week, we had a great trip!
