Trip Itinerary
 
Here's our schedule for the trip:

September 24
  • Drop off the dog, have breakfast and hit the road. WDW is about 7.5 hours from our house. But ....DH can make it in 6 hours :drive:
  • Check in at Pop Century. Get settled in and explore the resort. Maybe go swimming.
  • Watch football. Our team, the South Carolina Gamecocks play Vanderbilt.

September 25
  • Get breakfast at Everything POP
  • Check out and head over to Animal Kingdom
  • Enjoy the park, leave about 2:00 PM or 3:00 PM and head over to our next resort to check in. We are staying at an RCI resort for about 4 nights. This resort stay is part of a cruise package that we purchased last year. We take the cruise in April. Five days on the Disney Dream. Very exciting !! We have stayed here before and it is very nice.
  • Dinner ADR at the Grand Floridian Cafe at 6:45 PM

September 26
  • Epcot - Future World. Our plan is just to tour Future World on this day. Touring Epcot all day is just too tiring, so now we split it up so we aren't so exhausted.

September 27
  • Sleep in at the resort. Rest
  • Head over to MK at 4:00 PM for MNSSHP. This will be our first party. We are VERY excited about this.

September 28
  • Typhoon Lagoon
  • Fantasmic

September 29
  • Sleep in. Check out of Silver Lake and check in at Saratoga Springs. We had the Silver Lake resort until Sunday, but I just HAD to try out our new DVC membership, so we are staying at Saratoga Springs that last three nights
  • Dinner at Whispering Canyon 6:25 PM

September 30
  • Breakfast at Kona 7:30 AM
  • Epcot - Food and Wine - enough said

October 1
  • Magic Kingdom for the 40 year anniversary. One of my besties and her daughter will meet us there that day.
  • Lunch at Tony's at noon

October 2
  • check out
  • Hollywood Studios
  • Head home :sad1:

Mnsshp
 
We are very excited about MNSSHP. DD9 wants to be Alice and we plan on buying her Alice costume at the UK in Epcot. Maybe we will do this the first night we are there.

DH, DS12 and myself plan on wearing these shirts

I also ordered some string backpacks for the kids to use as treat bags for MNSSHP. I figure we can just carry them into the park in our backpack and the kids can wear them when the party starts and use them for trick or treating.

T-shirts
 
So we have been making T-shirts. I have been looking at the Creative DISigns thread and I found some really cool transfers.

Here are some of the ones we are doing

On a blue shirt

And on a purple shirt

I changed the zero to a one in Photoshop.

So fun stuff to pass the time until our trip. Which is in TEN days !!! :cool1::banana::cheer2:

LOVE the Mickey head Halloween shirts! Normally DD dresses up for MNSSHP, but this year has decided against it opting for a really cute Halloween t-shirt we saw at Justice and a super cute ear headband with a witches hat and braids. I'm wearing this shirt and a Minnie witch hat!

I really think you should add HDDR to your 10/1 itinerary! ;) We could probably work it to sit together. Sigh. One day we'll all get to go together...if we can actually end up planning trips where we are both there more than one day that is!

jecskc 09-14-2011 07:50 PM

OMG !! I LOVE :lovestruc that shirt !! Where did you get that ??? I wish we could to Hoop De Doo with you as well. I know DH nad the kids would LOVE it !! But alas, we have lunch at Tony's that day, I think. Are you eating there 10/1 or 9/30 ?? Our next two trips are Nov 22-27 and April 6-10 ... BE THERE !!! :rotfl::rotfl2:

Pixie Princess 09-15-2011 09:24 PM

I got my Minnie witch hat today!!! :banana: It is so cute!

We are going to HDDR at on 10/1. The 5:00 show, so plenty of time for your lunch at Tony's to settle. ;) I got the Boo Ya shirt from flippinsweetgear.com.

jecskc 09-16-2011 02:58 PM

OK. I'll check the prices and confer with the bean counter .. I mean DH and get back to you. Do you think you can get us added to your reservation ?? Do they take TIW ?? That would really soften the $$$ blow. Let me know !!! Did you get the new Minnie Witch hat ?? The one that kinda looks like sorcerer Mickey's hat ?? I didn't really like the one last year that had those long thin thingys sticking out. I tend to go for more traditional designs, I guess.

Oh, and SEVEN more days !!! I'm soo excited !!!

Pixie Princess 09-16-2011 08:23 PM

You can only use TiW for the 9:30 show of HDDR. Yeah, that's just a tad late to be eating that kind of meal! That was one of the reasons I decided against TiW last year. Right now there aren't tables for a group of 4 or 6 for the 5:00 or the 7:15 show, but since we're already in maybe they can shift some tables around. It'll be a long shot if the accounting department gives the thumbs up, but you don't know unless you ask, right?

My hat is like the socerers hat, so like a real witch hat. There's a pic on this thread. DD is getting the headband with the braids. I desperately wanted a Minnie witch hat last year, but couldn't find one that wasn't headband style. The ones the year before was so cute, so I was kicking myself for not getting one.

2 more weeks for us. Woo hoo!

jecskc 09-16-2011 08:51 PM

Yes. That is the hat I was talking about. If you can get us in to HDDR, then we will come. Let me know what you come up with :-)

jecskc 09-17-2011 06:16 PM

One week !!! One week and we will be there !!! :cool1::banana::dance3::yay::woohoo::cheer2:

jecskc 09-18-2011 06:14 PM
