I almost forgot to update with our news from yesterday.

My mom had pre-ordered the Cinderella movie and went to pick it up yesterday. While she was there she asked if we needed/wanted anything else. One of the things we were wanting to get for the girls was some cereal bowls for morning breakfast in the room. She agreed to get those and also, since she had pre-ordered the Cinderella movie, she would get lithographs from the movie and wanted us to be able to take them and have them signed at the park!

All in all it was a winning day for Disney at our house!

In other Disney news, our plan for subterfuge is working well. Whenever we say "we're going to Disney World!" the girls scowl at us and say "No we are not. Where are we *really* going?"

They are going to be really surprised when we actually go!

Speaking of pressed pennies, I have to get some coins rolled up and turned into pennies and quarters. We also have to figure out a plan for keeping and storing them. I'm thinking laminating pages after we get home to put in a scrapbook, but while we're out and about maybe putting them into a gladware type container might work well too?

As to the things I forget when traveling it typically is the toiletries that I still need until just before we leave. Never fails. You grab your soap, your shampoo and your tooth brush and then you forget your deodorant or a hairbrush or something like that. Then you buy it on vacation and pay $20 for a half stick of deodorant.

Hope everyone has a great day. Pixiedust and good vibes to those that are waiting on Mickey Mail!

I bought a Disney World pressed penny book on ebay.. Like this one It is really cute and holds a good amount of pennies and has a few spots for the pressed quarters.

I have the Disneyland version of that one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Disneyland-R...item4abbdad62b

And I <3 it! It was cheaper in the park though - I want to say $6.99 or $7.99 (plus tax)!

Got our ME tags today! Still waiting for our Mickey Mail but its enough to tide me over. Only thing is I have to call them because our flight info is missing even after giving it to Disney by phone 3 times.

The thing I normally forget to pack is sun tan lotion. Since its cold here when we leave I don't think of the sun in Florida. Last time we had to buy some in Blizzard Beach for like $100.

There is a Walmart pretty centrally located if you forget some things! I know we hit them up at least 2 or 3 times just for snacks and things we didn't want to pack for a long car ride.

40 days for us!

We will be in WDW over Thanksgiving & I know it will be super crowded. I am hoping someone can answer this question:

If a park fills to capacity, can you still be admitted if you have dinner reservations? I am a little worried about this (ok, ALOT).

TIA,
Julie

Unfortunately the offical word is no - fire codes are fire codes. I don't know if they have a line for special reasons where they will let people trickle in as people leave though...? I would think not because it wouldn't seem "fair" to other people though - I think closed at capacity means closed.

That is what I figured. I guess to be safe, you enter at rope drop & stick it out?

Also, during the week of Thanksgiving, do all parks full to capacity? Which ones are the worst?

Thanks,
Julie
