Are you kidding? There's a party happening at MK and you think I'm not going to be there????!!

I got this in 2008 while I was still working at WDW, and I love it. I want to use it for trick-or-treating during the parties



And my Mickey mail! It's apparently just a little planner thing, so it's all information I already knew, but it was still fun to get mail from Disney that wasn't "JOIN THE MOVIE CLUB" or "GET OUR CREDIT CARD".

And I have an updated itinerary! Hopefully this will be the final one unless I choose to hop over to another park, since I'll be adding hoppers when I get there. I'll just see what I feel like on the day, but I do want to spend most of my time at MK

DME to Pop and grab lunch at the food court
If I worked the night before, go to the room and pass out for a while

Sunday, October 24
Wake up around 10 or so and head to Downtown Disney

Just saying I know the parties are expensive, which is one of the reasons I tried to schedule the ADRs before the party actually starts Plus, that way, if Ruthie or her husband decide to come for dinner, but not stay for the party, she can

Isn't that bag adorable? I love it! I wanted it the first time I saw it and just never got around to buying it until I saw it in Cast Connection in November There may be some on eBay, you never know Found it!

Yes, we can This is one of the good things about a solo trip - I can rearrange my schedule to my heart's content without annoying anyone else

They are a little bit pricey....but Tuesday night will just be me; no DH...and given how much it will cost me to fly all that way, what's an extra MNSSHP ticket in the face of that cost???
Besides, I'm one for making the most of opportunities when they come my way. :teeth"

Thanks....but it just doesn't make sense for me to get it shipped, plus extra $$, from the US to Australia; only for me to bring it in my suitcase from Australia to the US.....and then back again

Will I need a trick or treat bag?

That's why I was going to offer that if you wanted to buy it, you could ship it to my house and I'd fly it down for you

They give you a small bag, but it's about the size of a small lunch bag. I'm sure they'll have bags available at the park, since they had those in 2008 and I think they had something in 2009.

I mean I'm sure they'll have nicer bags But yeah, the little ones they hand out don't hold much candy

Okay ..Fred does not have any type of park pass and I probably won't have one either unless some financial win fall happens that I'm not yet aware of.... with the MNSSHP we'll be able to get into MK at 4 pm for the party & the ADR/dinner meet
...that's the plan as of now

Well, I have a minor case of OCD. So lists are just something I like. I have lists for just about everything, not just my vacation
