Joining in. We will be there May 25th - June 8th. My DS8 loves Pirates and Star Wars also(in fact we will be there for SWW). My DS has done Jedi Training 8 times and still loves it. We are also going in September with our extended Family which includes my niece who will be 6. She is a huge Princess Lover.

More shopping?! I'm gonna be broke at Disney!

So, I went and did a little shopping (okay, okay more than a little...) and I got tons of awesome Disney goodies that I am going to have delivered to our room while we are there! I will have to take some pics tomorrow, but I got coloring pages, picture frames, glow wands, and more stuff I can't remember at the moment! I also keep getting cute clothes (dresses and t-shirts) that I find from second hand FB groups I am in. I need to stop or I won't have any fun money for the trip!!

On a personal note, I need to have 4 teeth pulled in the coming weeks, so keep me in your prayers! Two wisdom teeth on the left side (the two right ones were pulled a few years ago) and both 6 year molars. I tried yesterday to do it, but I panicked and ran, literally, out of the office. So, this time they are putting me to sleep. They want to do 2 at a time, but I want it all done at once. It's a lot of money to be put to sleep, so even though it will be more uncomfortable, I need to save the money. I am self-employed, so a friend of mine will take over my clients while I need to be out of commission to recover.

Sorry to hear about the teet. I had all of my 4 cut out and would only do it while being under so I can totally relate! I hope you have a speedy recovery!!

Prayers on the teeth extraction. I am a big chicken when it come to dentists. I was put under to have my Wisdom teeth pulled and even with that they had to give me a valium to take the morning of so I could get up the courage to even let someone take me to the dentist office. Heck I even have to have gas just to have my teeth cleaned so I can really relate to dental anxiety.

Thank you! I am more nervous about the wisdom teeth because they aren't even all the way through yet! EEEK!

I'm glad I'm not the only one!

I had all 4 wisdom teeth out at the same time. I hated it.

But it is a necessary evil as far as I am concerned.

Yuk!

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers!

Shopping, planning, and re-arranging!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, but I have been a busy little bee over here! I have a HUGE problem when it comes to planning... I have to plan every last detail!! Yes, I know a lot of it will change at some point, especially once we are there, but I still feel like I am completely unprepared if I don't at least have a good idea in place. Soooo, that being said, I researched EVERY restaurant I have an ADR for. I am pretty happy with my choices, except for one. I called my TA today and asked her to change it. We were scheduled to have dinner at Hollywood & Vine on our HS day (day 2, I believe). I thought it was a character dinner, but it isn't. I asked her to either switch it to breakfast OR if that wasn't available, to try and get us into 1900 Park Fair for dinner that night instead. Fingers crossed one of those work out!!

I also received my park maps in the mail, but of course I wanted to add things I hadn't thought about when I ordered them, so they are no good now. I have a plan written out for each day, from when we will wake up, to what order we will do the rides and other attractions in, to meals, and even including what time we should get to bed! (Told you I had a problem!)

I have also been doing some shopping!! I won't bore you with pictures of clothes, but I have gotten several Disney T-shirts, tank tops, dresses, etc. for the kiddos! I even got transfer papers today so I can work on making a few personalized t-shirts! Here's what else I got:
[IMG][/IMG]

2 travel first aid kits, mickey band-aids, princess band-aids, princess ziplock baggies for snacks, batteries (for my camera!), 3 packs of sanitizing wipes (mickey, princess, cars), 2 autograph books (thinking about getting one for my youngest, too), picture frames (minnie, phineas and ferb, and princess), 2 glow wands, a princess wand, and more glow wands (Belle, Cinderella and Iron man (?))

I got them from the disney store's website. They were $7.95 each. I've never been to WDW, but I heard they were like $13 there so I wanted to have them before we went!

We'll be there the same time you are but we're staying offsite...I was a little bummed since it's our first time but we had an offer we couldn't pass up...I'm totally with you when it comes to Disney now...I am obsessed

I need to be as organized as you...I'm still trying to figure out ADR's...

Oh thank you! The Disney Store is having their friends sale now and everything is 25% off. I have a few shirts in my cart, but I'll have to see about the books. Is that where you got the light up twirly toys (or whatever those are...hehe)?

The light up character wand things were at Target for $5 each! They were in the toy section, in the aisle with their "value" toys. When I found them at my local Target, these were the last 3 they had! I thought it was fate LOL

If I found a great deal offsite I would do it too!! I am working with a travel agent for this trip, but she told me when she booked my ADRs that a few of them were the only times available for the days I wanted them. I hope you guys have a magical trip, too!!
