I DVRd Robin Hood the other day so that may be our first countdown night movie. Maybe tomorrow? I'll have to go find the movie theme night thread for some ideas
Etsy, evil, evil, evil, LOL I got DD the cutest minnie dress for her Minnie bday last year, then I shrunk it lol.

Oh that is a good idea!! I was trying to justify spending $20 on a shirt she would realistically wear once, maybe twice and a pillow is a great souvenir. Thanks!

NP, I get that from my mom. If you have enough t-shirts from past trips, you could make a blanket/ quilt.

Joining the group :)

Well we've been home a total of 2 days and we're already looking forward to our next trip! It was a wonderful trip too! One of our best, with a ton of great memories!

But for 2013 we'll be headed down exactly one year from today, January 19th 2013. Probably staying until the 25th.

Where we're staying is up in the air right now. We're DVC members so we will book our home resort (OKW) in a little under a month. Then at 7 months out we'll book where we really are going to stay.

We're also thinking about a split stay, with the second half being a surprised to the kids. We usually go every other year, and our last trip had been in 2011, so the kids weren't expecting to go in 2012 so we surprised them at Christmas with the trip. They already know that we're going next year, but we thought it might be fun to pretend like we're headed home, and when they say, can't we stay just one more day? We all say okay and we head over to the next hotel.

But we've got plenty of time to figure it out!

I think I'd like to do this for the 3 grandchildren I'll be taking on our 2013 trip, but I'm not sure where to start. Can you suggest some sites?

(I'm just hanging out on this thread, waiting for someone to start a February 2013 thread.)

Dates and resort finally changed.

So, I was wondering if I'm the only nut out there that does this. I have been going over menus and planning what I am planning what I am actually going to order.

You can find some really great examples on the Creative Community section of the boards or www.twopeasinabucket.com is a great site. Look in the gallary under Disney

Once I have some of my pages done I will post them so you can see if you like?

I didn't think of Googling. I usually just go to the food threads here and look at pics.
