Maybe I should start a packing list? Is it too soon?
See below so no, a packing list isn't too early

It's coming up so quick!! I think I'm at 56 days today! Insane! Our trip update: We booked a car and got a diamond parking pass. NOthing else really. I haven't done any touring plans for the parks yet, I don't know if I will.

Old Navy is having a one day sale today $15 for fleece jackets so If anyone needs one head on out!
I got to Old Navy at 10 this morning and they only had 6 of the women's fleece coats left. Only one was in my size so I grabbed it. It's a dark blue color with a belt. I am suprised they were almost gone at 10!

I went a couple of years ago when they do the flip flops for a $1, limited to 6 per person. I was there at 10.30 and just after me they had to close the doors as they were to capacity It was awful in there! Then there was a huge showdown between a customer & staff cuz the guy had about 50 pairs - he didn't know about the limit and threw a major tantrum It took me forever to get out.

Needless to say, I haven't been back for that sale. Seriously, its not worth the buck per pair.

That would be quite stressful! I can't imagine 50 pairs?! I wonder if he was buying them as gifts?

The jacket is cute and I will probably bring it with to WDW for those cool/cold nights...if there are any. You just never know.

The cynical side of thought he was buying them to re-sell

Fingers crossed for that weather. Last year was incredibly mild, warmer than usual. I wouldn't mind that this year

I do have a question, though. It's a dining question. I've said before I'm not happy unless I'm changing at least ONE ADR a day

If you had to choose between Tutto Italia and Coral Reef, which one would you choose? I booked Tutto for our Candlelight Processional package but I'm not convinced it's the best place as I don't see many dining reviews of it. Of course, now that I'm trying to find dining reviews to compare the two, I can't find much! Anyone have any advise?
Tutto Italia. We've been to Coral Reef and it was eh, ok. We have Tutto Italia booked for our second day at Epcot. I was very shocked that we were able to get an ADR so easily. I figured it would be sold out due to the CP. But I also booked it last month.

If you haven't already, you can check out the Youtube video that WDW Info has. If you can't get to the link from the main forum page up in the news section (like I can't due to issues with IE), then go to www.youtube.com/wdwinfo to view the video. After watching it, I was very happy that we made the decision to book it. I was getting hungry just looking at the food and desert!

And here I thought that that type of scenerio was an exageration ! I wouldn't be able to be in a store that is that crowded due to my claustrophobia. Heck, I can't even be in the TRU store located in Times Square, NYC without feeling too closed in. And it doesn't matter if it's during the Holiday season or not.

We're a pretty excited group so let the good vibes go!! That sounds like a great family trip and a great surprise! We hope my SIL and BIL can join us and surprise our MIL. We haven't seen them since 06 and it's been a year for my MIL. Fingers crossed!! Your plans sound great and are sure to be fun! We are doing Ohana and Boma on this trip and are two favorites of ours

I have it on my short list too I'm so glad I didn't listen to dh and keep that Coral Reef ADR. I do sometimes get a little nervous eating at a restaurant that has a main focus of seafood. Cross contamination is a concern and I'd just as soon avoid having to be put in the hospital. I know the chef's are probably very good about allergies and such but why tempt fate?
Last time we bought two boxes with styrofoam inserts from Uline. The boxes were cheap and we had them shipped to my mom; though you could send them to the hotel. Then we brought the boxes home as checked luggage on the plane because you can't ship it normally. It was during F&W so we bought a few bottles at the Festival Center but mostly we bought sake. I'm trying to decide whether we'll need the boxes this time. We'll be there a lot longer this time and there's a S African wine shop in AK we want to check out. But if its just a few bottles we can pack them in the suitcase. I guess it depends on how much sake we buy.

As far as Tutto Gusto, we'll mostly be drinking not shopping. Twice a week they have free wine tastings - Mon and Thurs from 3-4. So far no one seems to know about it and reviews have indicated its pretty empty.

This is why I do 90% of my shopping online. Scary.
