Nightmares

I am an obsessed planner I can't help it! Before we booked this trip I was already planning it where to eat where to stay what park we would do on what day.

The last two nights I have had nightmares where I am frantically packing the morning we are leaving for Disney washing, ironing searching for everything whilst carrying Elsie under my arm!

I know you think I am crazy but by now the suitcase is normally out and I have started chucking things in it It sounds just as crazy to me but it is just the way I am lol!

So I am planning on starting this week so I dont wake up at 3am again in a cold sweat lol worrying if I have my tooth brush or if I have all of Elsie's costumes lol!

Are there any other crazy packers out there or do you have any sort of routine of getting ready for your holidays?

Oh hun lol! I hate those nightmares...they're so real aren't they!? I have had dreams where I miss trains, or flights, or get somewhere and have forgotten the majority of my clothes, got down to the hotel swimming pool but don't have a swimming costume etc.

I don't tend to pack in advance, because 1) I loathe doing it, 2) Matthew is a complete nightmare at sneaking in to rooms and if he saw suitcases, he'd naturally think we were going right now.... and 3) we have a 3 bed house, so our spare room is where I'd have to keep it and my Dad is coming to stay just before we go, so that isn't an option. What I do, is make list after list after list. I have an Excel spreadsheet for every holiday and I just frantically write in it all the time lol. Just now I have a notebook next to the bed for those things I remember at 3am, lol, and then I transfer it to Excel the next morning.

Being organised and a good planner is a blessing and a curse, isn't it lol!

I think you're doing brilliantly, and Elsie is one lucky little lady!

Another list maker I love it I am terrible but I like to have everything hand written down I hate writing a list on the computer I don't know why lol!
I have a Disney notebook and I list everything clothes, toiletries, where we are going to eat, what I want to try, things I need to get, things I need to do before I go lol! I am terrible!

Every night in bed I lie there thinking about it I am terrible! I am the same with everything though Christmas, Birthdays, you should of seen me when I was 8 months pregnant I had a list for everything! I have lists for my lists

add one more list maker I have a notebook and carry it around, because you never know when something pops into your head.

I plan every trip no matter where to we travel. I just love planing. It's part of a trip magic. DH says I'm nuts, but planing helps us get most of our trips.

Dining


I think I have finally made up my mind

March 5th We aren't due to arrive till 8.30/9pm so it will be straight to bed for us ready for a busy couple of days.

March 6th
Cafe Mickey 7/7:30
The plan for here is for Dave and I to have a starter each share a pizza then have Elsie's cake.

March 7th
Inventions 7:30/8

March 8th
Auberge de Cendrillon 1:00

I question it every time but this is it now! I worry it will be too late for Elsie as she got quiet upset last year when we were still at Cafe Mickey late last year but then I think we will go back for her to have a nap every day so she will be a bit more rested! So this is it I hope. No it is. I think

Have 3 DLP trip lists on the go at the moment?
1. Characters we want to meet
2. Stuff to take
3. things to do

Have just found some cute hot water bottle shapped hand warmers - the gel kind that you reuse so have bought them. Now to find a warm dressing up dress for DD - any ideas?

How old is DD as the Disney Store now do fleeced lined dresses. Seems like a good idea they start at 2-3 they have cinderella and sleeping beauty.

I also have list like that I think my list is turning in to a book though!
