Less than 1 month away!!!

That's it, really.

I'm so excited I could explode, but the list of things to do seems to be growing exponentially. (Plus actual work, which oddly my bosses expect me to attend to...)

For anyone who orders from Garden Grocery - how far out do you place your order?

I've rented the scooter for Granddad, to be delivered on arrival day. I've reserved the rental car, to be picked up the day after our arrival (DH pushed for Magical Express to/from the airport). I've set aside DD's clothes to be packed and started organizing our toiletries. I've booked the dogs' to be boarded and stopped our mail (gotta love USPS.com!). I've made our TS reservations (added Boma just last week) and worked out a general parks plan to minimize lines and other craziness while ensuring that Every Single Princess is Met and Greeted. Whew!!

Less than a month to go!!!

I usually place our Garden Grocer order at 3-4 weeks out. During busy times of the year they can run out of delivery spots. But I would think that at this time of the year you should be good to place it now. Have fun!

Hahaha - thanks Bama Ed! And I totally agree - we need more TRs! We probably won't be going back for 2 years, so I need to live vicariously through everyone else!
