Congratulations to everyone who got their BOG reservations. Wish I could go too!!! The acronym is rather unfortunate though...

Dabecs, we too love watching movies set in our destination cities. The kids get so excited when they see something they recognize!

Franrose, that's exciting news! If you're early December then you might see us there next year! Nothing wrong repeating the same trip if it's what you love and want to do. There are many people who visit the same place every year!

Maybe we can start a Dec 2013 thread....

Changed our booking to New Years day, must have been a cancellation as there was nothing available after we re-booked or for other days up to the 15th January.

Will be in the December 2013 list and for all the years after!

Tonight we are going to watch Night at the Museum 2: Battle at the Smithsonian, another of our destinations

I have also ordered a dozen kids books about NYC and Washington (including Night at the museum) which should arrive soon Then I can give them to the girls when we tell them about the trip! I'm hoping it will help them understand where we are going to what we will be doing and seeing.

Colin - congrats on the booking, pretty special to be there New Years day!

The new term in our house is "bogger it!"

After waiting hours and calling like a stalker, it better not be a bog.

Be Our Guest will not be character dining. Belle can sometimes be seen at Akershus or outside France.

Not much going on in our little thread!

So in the last 3 days I have placed 2 separate Disney store orders I hope they both make it to SSR and are happily waiting for me when I arrive

On my to do list for September:

- book Amtrack train between Washington and NY
- buy photopass+ (how much is shipping to Aus? Does that negate the prepaying discount?)
- buy crocs
- start writing a packing list (I still have the one you emailed me Ms Shuttergirl so I will tweak that)
- work out how we are going to tell the girls and when

How are the plans everyone?

My plans are to write a more detailed "to do list" so that I can slowly work my way through it without forgetting anything.

Photopass - do you need to buy that beforehand? Is it cheaper that way? How much beforehand? I think in the past I've just grabbed a card off the first Photopass person I've seen but if it's cheaper to do beforehand I'm all for it.

I still have some tours to book in for but because some things spill over into Jan 2013 the dates aren't open yet. Frustrating.

I need to work out a Garden Grocer list.

A new packing list tweaked from my Master Packing list.

The photo pass is $30 cheaper presale - it suggests ordering at least 14 days beforehand for USA orders to ensure it is delivered before you go - so if I am going to preorder I want to do it soon to allow ample shipping time to Aus. I just need to know if postage here is going to use up most of the savings..

That's a good point, the postage could be an issue. If you find out could you let me know

I will just have to start going through the check out process and see what the postage says - I'll let you know when I do (next week or two).

The photo change threw me - I am so used to seeing Ariel and thinking 'Ms Shuttergirl'!

Yeah I know, I didn't want to change it but that new Jess girl was using the same avatar and I thought it was weird for 2 people to have the same thing. It was bothering me so thought I better change

Yay! That will be us from here on as well as its the only time when we can take an extended holiday.

I always feel like I'm behind on the DISboards! I keep meaning to read up on everyone's TR and PTR but I'm just struggling to keep up. It would probably help if I check in more often!

Ms Shuttergirl, I just read about your changes the other morning. It sounds like all in all, things worked out for the best.

Dabecs, your list looks quite manageable I will have to pay close attention to this photopass+. Last time, we just pre-bought the CD and got the photopass cards when we got there. From memory, shipping of the CD wasn't to bad (?$15?).

AS for me, my time just seems to fly by. I'm still trying to get together a blog post on our building progress for Ms Shuttergirl

Europe is doing my head in. I just can't seem to find the motivation to finish off the loose ends. Still have to organise shore excursions for our cruise. My mind is elsewhere...like USA Dec 2013. I'm trying to figure out our driving route post WDW and Fantasy cruise and seeing if I can squeeze in a cruise on the Allure of the seas!
