I love that pic of the castle!!!! I can't wait to see it in person next week!

We're driving too. Leaving 4am on the 23rd and checking in on the 24th!

Sorry to hear about the sick little snowbirdies. The pukes are going around in my area too. I'm keeping the kids in, avoiding playdates and germy public stuff like the train table at the library, and making them wash hands more than they like. I'm making my little daycare wash hers as soon as she comes in and 50 times a day- thank goodness she's part time- fewer days to share germs! We're taking our vitamins too. Both my kids still have a little leftover sniffle but I'm just hoping to avoid the stomach bug. We had it around Thanksgiving so hopefully we built up some immunity to it or something.

Meghan I hope you find a mini m&m tube soon. I got mine at Toys R US- small ones.

Thanks for the tip about washing mugs. I didn't know CBR switched to real glasses. I still have disposable Dawn dishwasher things from our last trip that we'll use to wash our mugs with.

I haven't explained what a LGMH is to my dh yet. I made mine and attached it to my backpack today. I used the luggage tags they sent us- we're driving so won't need them for the real purpose. One side is the luggage tag and the other side I tucked in my LGMH. I'll post a pic hopefully tomorrow.

Nighty night Snowbirds! Sweet Disney dreams!

I got mine at Quik Trip (I don't know if you have those in NY) but they were hidden at the edge. I bet I stared at the racks for 5 minutes. Then Hubby was at Toys R'Us and saw them there. Still only the small ones, not the bigger ones!

Thanks for the tip ladies! I will definately head over to Toys R Us tomorrow after work. At this point I don't mind what size they are, as long as I find some!

If worse comes to worse, we just use old prescription bottles and but the cute labels that we make over the bottles...Not as cute as the m&m's, but still workable. My girls have their packed already. Just an option if you can't find the containers you like.

I know it's late...but I wanted to say "HI"

I've been up printing window clings out...they look very cute...can't wait to see them up in 3 days...

I have a ton of Mickey heads from Home Depot...exactly what color or the LGMHs?

Also, some asked about dispensers in the showers...there are none on the DCL ships...they give out the wonderful H2O shampoos and conditioners...nice size bottles.

Meghan...I found M & M containers at Rite Aid...they were the big kind.

I'm off to bed...alot of packing tomorrow and errands tomorrow - bank, post office (postcard stamps...if anyone forgot those) and Target.

Morning! It's the rare occassion that I have a few minutes before I actually have to leave for work. I'm usually 15 minutes late, but couldn't sleep.

Non-Disney question: Do any of your kids have problems with nightmares? Keaton (the 2 1/2 yr old) has woken up crying about 5 out of the last 8 nights. This morning, the first thing he said when I went in his room was "Dinosaurs get me." I guess I thought that was too young? He goes right back to sleep when I put him in our bed. Am I being manipulated or could he really be having nightmares? BTW: I'm going matress shopping today to get him a big boy bed so I'll have somewhere to sleep!!

Hope you all have a good Tuesday! One day closer to DISNEY!!!!! 10 days for me until we leave, 11 unti Disney!!!

Good morning Snowbirds!

Post card stamps...thanks! My list keeps getting longer and longer and longer and I can't seem to get ANYthing crossed off!
How much does it cost to mail a postcard these days, anyway?

My latest panic...well, background info first, we're going to be moving this summer--DH is military so this is not a surprise--and we're planning to rent out our house here (we bought it 2.5 years ago for a lot more than it would sell for now ). We posted it "For Rent By Owner" and have received a few inquiries about it, which is encouraging. However, someone is going to be in from out of town and wants to come see it...next week when we're at WDW! And someone else wants to see it...the day we get back! Now, I like to have the house clean when we go on vacation so we don't come home to a dirty house, but this time it needs to be "model home tidy", without all the clutter that we've become so used to. I can't complain, because I really am glad that we've had some interest in the house this far in advance, but I'm stressing over getting the house in shape before we go. Sorry to vent on you!

Morning from sunny Saratoga Springs. Well sunny for the next few minutes. Showers are expected today, but should be ending by early evening, which is great because we have Crystal Palace at 6:40 pm.

Stay warm everyone!

Good luck renting the house!

Morning Snowbirds!!!!! I can't believe my ticker...someone pinch me!
I have so much to do yet. I'm done shopping...I think. I just have to get packed, t shirts made, get my kids to make a surprise Happy Birthday poster for my hubby since his birthday is during our trip, and contact Chase to let them know we'll be using our credit card on vacation and to expect charges while we are in other states. (That tip is from my sister- her MIL went to get gas while on vacation in FL and it was declined b/c the credit card company thought it was fraudulent.)

Question for all the mom Snowbirds...
I've read some things about child safety while on vacation. Of course hubby and I will be super vigilant to keep our eyes on the kiddos- we're good parents- but you never know in a crowded situation. Things happen. Do any of you put some sort of ID/parents cell phone # on your kids in case they become separated? If so how? dh suggested a Sharpie. I don't know how I feel about writing on my kids with a Sharpie.

Poor guy...perhaps you should skip the dinosaur stuff at Disney? We're going through the scared of the dark phase with my son. he's 4 but a good nightlight works for him and before he falls asleep we talk about happy things that he can dream of. I've seen other parents use cute ideas like a magical spray (decorated Febreze bottle ) to keep the bad dreams away...if anything his room will smell nice.
Although, kids are really good at manipulating to get into mom and dad's cozy bed- even at such a tender age !

Good luck getting everything cleaned...as if you don't have enough on your mind. Don't these people know you're going to Disney and have to pack?

Why do I get the feeling that the last sentence is a "dig" at the rest of us still freezing our tushies off up north?
