One is in progress (aka cut out - I will try to do the sewing tonight), the other 2 I have material but no firm plan for yet. I'm still working out the details. I originally didn't think I'd come close to finishing all the outfits I had planned so I am thrilled that I am 50 days out and have 14 of 20 outfits complete. I feel pretty good that I can finish the other 6 in time now.

If you want I'll post pictures.

I do need to work on the day to day stuff though. I need to get my sister to confirm which meal she wants for Thanksgiving. There have been so many changes with the new Fantasyland, Test Track being closed, Christmas events, etc that I'm having a hard time figuring out where to start.
Oh yes, please post some pics if you don't mind. I love seeing what other people are busy creating. Our trip this time is only 5 days long so there's really not a whole lot left for me to do as far as outfits. I bought most of our shirts at the Disney store. I still have one set of shirts to make.

I also need to plan each of our days and make a list of all the must try snacks.
Today was supposed to be a Disney planning day but I ended up spending it in the ER. Nothing too serious but enough for DH to insist on me going. I'm home now and feeling much better.

And I'm having second thoughts about DHS. I'm not sure if I should skip it. I'm thinking with the girls heights there are LOTS of rides they cannt ride and then with the closers. I'm just not sure there is going to be enough to make it worth our time If we didn't go we would go to AK instead Plus I'm not really that excited about DHS. Not much there that interests me.
Congrats on paying off the trip!

We usually do 1 day at DHS and think of it as an easy day. My dd8 says it is her favorite park. This is the first year she is able to do the bigger rides so I'm sure we will be spending more time there. We like tsm, little mermaid show, beauty and the beast show and disney junior and this year I am determined to get a butterfinger cupcake at starring rolls.

I am trying so hard to keep my eye on the Disney prize -- I'm working long days and getting a lot of overtime and we're using that money for Disney. Whatever we don't use this trip will be put into an account for our trip to Paris/Disney Land Paris trip next April.

I'm at an event that is held every year but this is my first time volunteering. It's not terrible, but it's really hard to be away from my girls and especially my baby... it's also not easy on my H. He has to do soccer and ballet on his own in addition to dinner, baths, homework, etc.

I really hope the $ is worth it... if it is, I will be coming back next year! 2 weeks of work can finance our whole vacation and then some -- not a bad deal, I guess.
Sorry your missing your kiddos. It will be over soon and then you'll have what you need for a great trip.

We are going 11/15 - 11/25 and staying offsite. Today my countdown clock went to 50 days. It doesn't include today or arrival day though so its probably really 51 days.

Our plans
11/15 - travel day. We leave late because of school so won't get in until 7pm. No plans but getting checked in and sleeping.
11/16 - Late brunch at CM, Party at MVMCP
11/17 - short (late arrival early departure) day at Epcot. Lunch at Coral World
11/18 - Hollywood Studios - Have reservations for 50PT at lunch - not sure if we will keep them.
11/19 - Epcot - dinner at Via Napoli
11/20 - Animal Kingdom - Lunch at Tusker House
11/21 - Magic Kingdom - Dinner at Cinderellas Royal Table
11/22 - Thanksgiving - Hollywood studios. Lunch at Hollywood and Vine or Dinner at Chef Mickey. Will cancel one reservation eventually.
11/23 - Magic Kingdom - Breakfast at Crystal Palace.
11/24 - Epcot - Dinner at Biergarten
11/25 - Travel Day - Early flight home.

We are going with extended family, but the immediate family is me and my DH and our 2 little girls who will be 6-1/2 and 2-1/2. Its the 2 year olds first trip to DW. She has been on 2 Disney Cruises. The 6 year old has been to DW and DL (and the 2 cruises). I'm hoping my 2 year old likes the characters better in Nov then she did in July. In July she loved them from afar. She would want to go give them a hug until we would get up close to them and then she would change her mind.
Sounds like a fun time. We have a 2yr old also and I'm wondering how she will do. I think she will be fine with face characters but you never know.

Yesterday, I found the perfect small cross-body bag for the parks. Target has a a Mossimo bag on clearance for about $16 right now that is great. Reminds me of the Baggelini Zip 'n Go bag. The bag is small but holds a lot and has lots of zippered compartments and a nice long strap to go across the body (it is also adjustable). Target's version is faux leather and comes in fuschia, purple, mustard color, and black.
The bag sounds great!

How much time do you spend in World Showcase? Should I do 2 days at Epcot or another day at MK (we were going to do a half 2nd day at Epcot, then MVMCP that night)? Any suggestions?

Do any of you use those water bottle strap thingys? I am trying to avoid using a stroller just to carry our stuff, but carrying 7 bottles around between all of us does not appeal to me (and it seems that the grown ups always end up carrying the kids' stuff!). If I can swing not taking a stroller, this will be the first time in 16 years that I have been without one in a Disney park. I have the feeling that I will feel like I am missing something all day long!

Thanks in advance!
We will be at Pop too. What are you making for your window? I was going to bring some window cling decorations.

We are spending 2 days in Epcot. We are going to focus on one side each day. Does that make sense? Like head to the right one day and the left the other.

I have been waiting so long for this trip. It's our first time for a trip at Christmas and it's been planned for 3 years. But, the other day we got news that a much loved family member who has been fighting cancer and has been doing so well, has all of a sudden taken a turn for the worse and has only 4-8 weeks to go. I'm devastated to say the least. The trip is up in the air; I can't miss a family funeral for a dear loved one. Then yesterday (3 days after being told the bad news), we got a call that they were gone. I'm absolutely crushed. The funeral will not interfere with the trip at all, but suddenly the trip just doesn't seem important. I can't even enjoy working on the shirts I was making. The magic isn't there because I know that if I'm on the trip I'm going to see all kinds of things that I would liked to have bought for her.

So far I have made paper Disney ornaments to hang in the 1st window and I do have some lights and various other stuff. This will be our Christmas themed window. The 2nd window will be a vacation celebration themed window with bright colors. I have not seen the window clings at our Walgreens. I have been to several around here and so far have not found anything!

We are leaning more and more toward the 2nd day at Epcot too. I don't want to feel rushed. My kids love studying things about different countries (and our homeschooling curriculum this year is heavy on World Geography).

Are you at Pop when we are? Keep an eye out for us! I'd love to 'meet' some disers in real life for a quick hello! I'll have a bright red backpack with a lgmh hanging from it and my girls have very very long hair!

Im so sorry for your loss! We lost my grandfather earlier this year, he made a significant imprint on my life and was very dear to me. This feeling will pass... the funeral and next few weeks will be very hard, but in time 'they would have loved this... *cry*' becomes 'they would have loved this... *smile*'.

Our potential guest found out today that she has to work the day after thanksgiving, so she won't be able to stay with us the entire trip. She may have found a deal on a flight/room combo that will likely have her staying off site, so our AoA LM ressie is staying put. More on this to come I'm sure.

Just remembered my wife bought the skirts from Joann's that she has to make. I'll have to remind her of that as she has likely forgotten.

In the meantime just counting the days.
