Good Morning Everyone!!

It's so great to read about everyone's final preparations and/or their first days at WDW. I'm so genuinely happy for everyone who has gone, is there or is just about to go! Let me just say it has been a pleasure to be a part of a thread that has been so friendly and fun! All the best to all of you!

I may need a sedative tonight to sleep.

Mildly concerned about the crowd levels and no idea how to prep for the weather. I know that we may wind up in the Ursula building despite the request not to and won't be able to change if we do wind up there since AoA is sold out. Anyone know if the humidity has made it feel warm and sticky or is it nice during the day? It's a good thing we're driving because we're packing for warm and cold.

Gotta let that stuff go and just have fun and roll with whatever comes about. Getting into the new stuff would be great but it's not going to wreck the trip if I can't. This is all about the kids and making sure THEY have a great time and a wonderful memory.
Yes, what you may miss out on will not matter at all. Your girls are going to have such a great time...and you'll have such a great time being a part of that. Hope you got some sleep last night.

Would you prefer a list of pressed coin locations like this:

A map of pressed coin locations like this:

https://www.disneynow.com//accounts/...0Checklist.pdf

or just hit them where you see them?
I love those maps!

I just checked the weather and it seems to be similar to what it is here-cold in the morning and evening, and perfect in the afternoon.

My husband and I just packed our bags and are taking a little breather before we start with the kids' clothes. We decided to just skip the shorts all together and pack jeans/pants so we don't have to change, but we're bringing layers of thin long sleeved tops, sweaters, and jackets.

Tomorrow, we'll pack up all the electronics and toiletries that we don't need for Saturday morning. I also need to go through and decide what paperwork to take, if any. I think I can find most everything on my phone.
Glad you checked in with us before you left. Sounds like you are ready. Have a wonderfully magical trip

Well we did MVMCP last night - we really didn't get our money's worth - we were just so tired!! I think that it was a mistake doing it so soon after our arrival! We did have a wander through new fantasyland - did Ariels grotto and VOTLM - I loved that ride - so colourful and I love the songs! We had a pork shank and lefous brew! Pork was gorgeous!

We'd had breakfast at crystal palace which was great and did loads of rides - some of which were new to us as a family - did big thunder mountain and splash mountain which was the first time out youngest was tall enough!

I have to say I'm loving Photopass plus - it's great to have the ride photos put on the card!

Chef mickey this morning!

The PP+ was handsdown the best purchase we made! I just sent away for my CD yesterday-- we have over 400 images! I took 2 days to edit the pictures and I can't wait to get them back. I love the ride photos, I loved getting the hard copies at certain restaurants and I LOVE LOVE LOVE that for ONCE I am in almost every photo!

We really made a point to take pictures everywhere!

Have fun!

So yesterday I took the time to write out daily lists of things that need to be accomplished (color coded of course) before Thanksgiving, before our trip and before Christmas. Breaking it down and assigning days really keeps me from freaking out with the amount that is to be done. It really saves me time in the long run to have a plan mapped out. That way I don't spend half the day trying to decide what has priority. Since I recently added a dental appt, a massage and an eye appt. before our trip, I really had to re-budget my time. Hope all is going well for all of you. Squirrel will be surprising his DDs very soon. I'm excited for them!

Also, I just changed one ADR. We dropped LTT and picked up Grand Floridian Cafe. I was reading on another thread how under-rated this place is, so thought I'd give it a try since we've eaten at LTT a couple of times before. That makes 3 new restaurants we'll be trying this trip. (I get in such a rut going to the same places every year!)

Thanks for the update. So sorry you were too tired to really enjoy MNSSHP. I just love the parade and fireworks and the whole atmosphere! But with jet lag, there's not a lot of enjoyment for sure.

Sounds like you're eating well. Love CP. Never tried CM, but I've heard it's a lot of fun. Yay for your youngest being tall enough to experience new rides!! I hope you continue to have a wonderful time!

We have 3 sleeps and a wake up and we are going to be in FLORIDA!!!

I am so excited I feel like I am going to burst. I have almost everything packed with the exception of bathroom stuff and shoes. I have all the cords/chargers to anything and everything we will need in a small plastic bin so I can just put a lid on it and go. I have copies of all things needed.

I am getting a little worried about the airport though. It will be the 3 of us 4 suitcases, a carseat, a stroller, my carryone bag, diaper bag, laptop case and P's little backpack. How are we going to get all this to the check in counter. Can I curb check with a small child? Since I have to show a birth certifitcate I am not sure if I can do it all curbside.... Oh man we are going to need a cart!

Still busting with excitment!!!

What I do in those situations is drop off the bags and my wife and kids at the terminal and then I go park the car and bring it all to the check in counter. We usually get a train setup of bags and have things balanced on top of one another, etc. Then I reverse it on the way back. Get the stuff from baggage claim and then go get the car.

We are on the way as I type this. The reveal went off without a hitch and the kids were very excited. We have three different angles of the reveal and I'll post the best one on YouTube.

This time tomorrow we should be hanging at the pool at AoA!

This is probably a stupid question - but why do you need to show a birth certificate? I've never had to show any id for the kids when we travel domestically, but maybe something changed?

Only if their age is in question. As they get close to that age where they can ride in a lap ID is needed but otherwise no. We bring our kids passports when we fly domestic just so there isn't any question.

My son is not quite 2 and they told me to make sure I had a birth certificate to show at check in. I had to show it last time we flew too. Maybe to prove he is mine.
