Maybe if you leave some chocolate under your pillow the Tag Fairy will visit you!

Basically, it is your travel documents. We got our luggage tags and vouchers for things like arcade tokens, PH $15 off, free round of mini golf, etc.

Just another thing to look forward to- makes the wait seem more fun.

...and then there is me who is scared of when the Mickey Mail will arrive since it is a surprise for the kids. DD11 will recognize Disney mail in a heartbeat, so I will be getting the mail alone when the time gets closer. No worries yet since I am at 54 and haven't paid it off yet anyway. We are telling the kids at day 22 (DS6th birthday) so I have to be careful in a few weeks.

Then there's the ME tags with the resort name on them...DD11 said next time we do Disney she doesn't want to know which resort until we arrive at least in Orlando, if not at the actual resort (WL for the first time) so that one's going to be really fun to try to keep secret. I think I will just need to warn her to keep her eyes off the tags if she wants to keep the surprise. Lots of surprises this trip...so fun!!

If you booked through a travel agent, do you get your "mickey mail" from them instead of via US Mail? We're suprising our kids as well and they get home from school before we get home from work

I canceled a Dessert Party ADR for 11/11 @ 7 pm for 3 early this morning. Finally found a slot on a better night for us. Hope someone here can use it!

Yes, they receive it and then call you to pick it up. =)

Tick, tock, tick, tock.

Just waiting for something to do to get ready.

I think my current debate is which cameras to bring. My wife and I will have our phones and we'll make use of the PP+ so I'm not sure if we want to bring our camcorder or DSLR or even a point and shoot to have as a backup for our phones. The kids will also have their iPods so they can take pictures with those as well. The camcorder does AWESOME video and would be great for fireworks, parades, etc and isn't very large, but I'd hate for it to come up missing somehow. The DSLR is pretty bulky but also takes amazing pictures.

What cameras are you bringing? Just cell phones? Relying only on PP? Point and shoot? DSLR?

Our travel agent (AAA) said that the documents are mailed to them, then they will mail them to us. So we will have some extra time to wait. Our kids know that they are going, but we told them we are leaving on Nov. 18 when we are really going on Nov. 11. So we need to intercept the documents too. I wonder if your travel agent could mail them to a different address? Good luck!
