Yes, you're right. I need to consider the weather....mmmm.

I'll bring a short sleeved black top; and with glow sticks ..... should about cover it for the weather. I have a lightweight black skirt; which will also be fine for the weather. This way, if I find some Disney tshirt that I like (for the right price), I can mix and match.

DS alert! Must visit Japan....

I haven't updated this thread with the outcome of the '(not) little talk' with DS.

All cool on the downunder Western Front! He took it relatively well and has compiled a shopping list for me and DH:
1. Bakugan from Japan
2. Bakugan from Japan
3. Bakugan from Japan
4. Bakugan from Japan
5. Bakugan from Japan

Anyone getting the feeling that I'm going to have to stop by Japan when I'm at the World?

But I'm still (NOT) having the Fugu fish!

What Is Bakugan?. Bakugan is a range of toys and a trading card game based on the Cartoon Network animated show "Bakugan"

So happy this trip is really taking on its own form now
Last year for MNSSHP my niece and I both wore Halloweenish t-shirts and just shorts....it was sooooo hot...It was fun to see all of the people dressed up but not in that heat! We saw The Incredibles family....think hot spandex/tights, many in full princess gowns etc. I don't have a calendar near me right now never mind I just looked on the bottom of my screen of my Macbook and duhhh it's right there I think the date I was planning for is the 26th.....I leave VERY early on the 29th but that it is not out of the question to go on that night.

It would be fun to have another drink in the Cave and stroll along WS....although we will be eating MUCH different things

Yikes! How did they cope? I'm going to be a shorts or skirt and TShirt person; so I'm really pleased to hear that other Dis-ers do dress like this too.

The Cave??? I don't think I could cope with another one of those "well made" tequilas! I was practically floating out of the Cave the last time....perhaps a more sedate mildly alcoholic slushie might be more in keeping with the things that we will be EATING!!

Seriously - What are your plans? It would be nice to hook up again?

This is all becoming more NOT not than not
Indeed Halloween isn't an Aussie thing...I've never been trick or treating etc...but I LOVE the decorations.
I mean my favourite attraction is the Haunted Mansion....so I have a serious spooky streak

Halloween is like the spooky version of Christmas. I'd love to go to MNSSHP some day.

Hope you get to find some good flights soon! To make it even less not

Hello Queenie! Hope you've been well. Yes...it's definitely more a not not than not trip, isn't it?

I'm still waiting for DH to book his flight! And then we'll just pay..... whatever for my ticket.

(And before you say it...Remember one of my original posts.....I don't nag him. There's absolutely no point. This way, he's happy, I'm happy!)

Hey there Sharon! I can't believe that I missed you starting this PTR! Thanks to your handy links though I'm all caught up - sounds like your "maybe" trip turned into a "definitely" trip, congrats!

As for dressing up for MNSSHP, just do what you are most comfortable with. I took Jared to one, he dressed as Captain Jack and I just wore a POTC t-shirt. There were lots of kids in costume and some adults, but there were more adults there like me in just a shirt that fit the theme of the night.

Hi Sharon!

I finally decided to come over here. Since your TR seems to be almost over I figured I better jump over to your PTR! You certainly do plan!

I don't really have any well laid out plans per se Really just my ADR's which I will work around where to go from there....
23rd Jiko
24 Brown Derby dinner
25 Le Cellier late lunch
27 Bistro

I left the 26 and 28 open because I don't know which of those days I want to do MNSSHP

Will you be on your own mostly during the days? We will definitely have to make plans to meet up again when it gets closer

Oh and yes floating was a good term for how I felt after leaving the Cave. It was like a shock to go back above ground and join the masses. We went back to the hotel and the pool because I needed to detox!!
