The mousekeeping envelopes are SUPER cute! Love them!

Let me know if you pick up one of those wristlets. I really want one. I like the purple one the best.

Thank you Jenny! I will. I want to see them first before I decide. I like the purple one too.

When starting to plan this trip, we knew we wanted to try to make it to the evening shows/fireworks/events. On my countdown I have already mentioned Wishes and Illumination. Today’s moves onto the last of these….

10. Fantasmic!

If you remember, we tried to get a F! package but we could not get one for Mama Melrose’s. Right around this time I also started to question whether Lilian would be able to make it to F! since she typically is in bed by 9:00. I am leaving it on my wish list because I really truly hope it works out for us! We are shooting to go on Sunday evening after our dinner at Cape May Café. I am also happy because Disney added two more showings (9:30 showings on Sunday and Thursday evenings). With downtime in the afternoon, I am hopeful it will work out for us to see it.


Picture from Steve Soares’ website.

Of course I had to include a video, but instead of posting the Fantasmic video itself, I decided to post the Music from Fantasmic since I (like all the others) have not watched it as I want to enjoy it first at the park.

Those of you with kid(s), do they handle it ok? I have read a few things that it might scare the littler kids because of the content. I think Lilian will be fine, especially since she will be with us but I am curious to see what your experience is with Fantasmic.

Since I posted the music, this would be a great time to discuss the music cds available at Disney. Which ones do you like or recommend? I am considering picking up one or two so I would love suggestions!!

Hard to believe but this is the last of the full day itinerary cards I have left to post. This is our DHS day. I am looking forward to seeing what you think about it.



The Beauty and the Beast time is for us to be getting into line (sorry for the confusion and miss print). The show starts at 11:30, at least right now. I remembered not being thrilled with this time because it lets us out right around lunchtime, when the CS could be busy but it was the best time to fit it in with everything else.


What do you think?

I really hope F! works out for you. Hopefully with a nap Lilian will do okay.

Your DHS day looks great, lots of shows- just like us (although different shows, lol). I'm really hoping for some good pics on SOA as well.

Evening EMH at EP sounds wonderful. Of course any extra time at EP sounds wonderful to me.

HI...

so I have just sped read all those updates...you were right updates galore

so first to the most recent....PHDL 10:30 and BBL at 11:00 am....not sure if you'll actually have enough time there in between...getting out of PHDL, usually takes a few minutes the kids always want to pick up some of confetti paper at the end and then walking over and down Sunset to the BBL stage...you'd probably make the show time, but not sure on great seats

Love all the latest countdown items:

fav MSB treat: rice kripie treat or the HUGE cinamon rolls

Yes you can get the toy pieces at Once Upon a toy...most CM's won't make you close the top...so fill fill away...the hardest part will be finding the 4 matching pony shoes...we dug in those bins...you don't have to buy the pony or Mr. Potato head either...leaves more room in the box (es)

we saw F! for the 1st time last March, Naomi-Ruth was about 2/1 2 and was just fine...

love the mousekeeping tip envelopes...so clever my kids are generally the ones that make them, it's on our countdown for this trip too...craft day

Having a souviner wish list is a great idea, I do the same thing, I generaly go over but I try to stay on track

I think all your daily plans look great and love the goals for each day too...

J~

I do not think F is scary for little ones.
I really hope you get to see it!

We've never seen Fantasmic at Disney World. I saw it at Disneyland once. It just always seems like a bit of a hassle. It's a great show so I hope it works out for you. Your DHS day looks good. DHS always seem to be the hardest day to plan for me. It's hard to work in all the shows and still get to the rides. Anyway, great planning

I really hope that it works out and you can watch Fantasmic! I have seen it at Disneyland before and just loved it.

I'm really hoping someone recommends some good Disney music CD's because that's on my souvenir list, too!

Ok, so I'll respond on here instead of just telling you tomorrow!!

F! is not too scary, I think Lilian will be fine!

I think you'd better plan on a later B&tB show! You will be rushing to get from PHD to B&tB. PHD will be a good 20 min at least and then there is the hearding of the people out of the theater afterwards! VOTLM is right across the courtyard from PHD. Maybe you can see both of those then head to B&tB. There are also character meet & greets with Little Einsteins and Handy Manny right outside PHD and characters in the animations studios building next to PHD. It might work out better to see PHD & VOTLM while you are in that area, seeing the characters in between the two shows! Just a thought! Did that make any sense?

Sorry Emily was such a poop today! Hopefully tomorrow will be better so we can get some shopping, I mean, walking in!!

We saw the Fantasmic show at DL this summer. Since it was standing room only it was alittle tiring. I hope to see it on one of our next trips.
I really want the 4parks one world CD-have heard nothing but rave reviews!

We too are very excited to see Fantasmic for the 1st time next month. I've watched bits and pieces of it on youtube and it looks amazing!

I have the "Wishes" and "IllumiNations" cds and I adore them! Perfect for when I need a Disney fix. I'm hoping to buy the "4 Parks One World" cd on this upcoming trip.

Thank you Hope! I think she will pass out from the heat so hopefully it will all work out.

I guess I should have noted, the show is at 11:30 not 11:00. I put 11:00 so we can head over and get into line. (I just verified the times on Steve Soares so I made a note on my cards. I know the times can change each week though. )

Love that you have the kids make the mousekeeping cards. I will have to do that with Lilian when she gets older.

Good tips on the boxes ol' pieces!

Thanks Julie!!
