Wow, that is amazing. We have two checked bags and two carry-ons for the two of us and I thought that was a bit much.

Christmas at WDW

Any ideas regarding how to satisfy a child's concern about whether Santa can get into the hotel room to deliver presents? We haven't told the kids about this a post-cruise WDW stop yet, but I could see how they might be a little concenred if we spring it on them on 12/23. Figured I'd see if any of you could offer any suggestions.

We have three checked bags and two carry-ons. One of those carry ons has all of my knitting and electronics, the other has DH's meds, his Nook and our cameras. The smallest of the checked bags is only half full, so there's room for a few souvenirs. We don't buy many souvenirs, but I promised my boss and a few other people something.

Only 45 minutes to go and then I have almost a month off! I am SO ready for this!

Me too! (Think I need to hit the gym before I start packing, though.)

I have an big old key on a ribbon that I hang on the door knob. This has been very helpful when visiting the grandparents!

We have already written a letter with very detailed instructions about how to find us this year--including a map!!!

We are in the air heading to California! So far, so good.

We did pretty good - for the 4 of us we have 3 checked and 3 carry ons. I was a little worried, put the first bag on the scale and it briefly passed 50 lbs and then settled in at 49!

Wow. 4 checked bags and 3 carryons (one is 3 year old DS's "CARS" suitcase, with his blanket and stuffed dog in it.) And, only one is a huge suitcase, the others are duffer and a garment bag.

But, it's tough with small kids. I'm pretty sure most of the rest of you do not have any Curious George books in your luggage. And I even used Babies Travel Lite!

LA IS SCRUMPTIOUS! Sunny. I started collecting miles today - anything to stay awake after getting up at 3 am and flying 9 hours.

We also travel tomorrow - leave for the airport around 4. Today was an exhausting last day at the office. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong. They were even calling me with emergencies on my way home and when I finally got home. I am so ready to be out of cell phone contact!!! People ask why I like cruising so much. Even camping doesn't get you away for cell service these days....

Now for final packing, now that I have finished the brownies for tomorrow's bake sale :-)

See you soon!

Packing

Totally stressed out!!
1) Have not packed yet.
2) I found out LAST NIGHT that DD's been assigned a secret santa for her gym's end of year party that she'll NOT be attending. I have to buy a gift, wrap it and deliver it to gym by end of practice tonight (in exactly 80 minutes).
3) Have not packed yet.
4) We're hosting a dinner for DH's family TONIGHT - I think for an early celebration for DH's birthday (he'll be on the cruise).
5) Have not packed yet.
6) DD has a music lesson, a birthday party AND an optometrist appointment tomorrow all before a holiday dinner we're also hosting for our close friends.
7) Have not packed yet.
8) Can anyone believe NOW, 2 days before we leave, DH decided that we really should do the ruins at Costa Maya before we head over to Tropicante???

I just need a vacation... but for now, I have to run and get that secret santa gift!

PS Did I say we haven't packed yet???

PPS - glad to hear everything is getting here safely with no issues. Enjoy DLR for those heading that way! See you all REAL soon!

We just discovered this forum. I am so happy to find out so many other members of this forum will be on the Wonder Panama Canal Cruise. My husband and I are in our 60's and have a 10 year old son. Long story. Our children's ages range from 50 to 10. We just started laundry and packing today. We discovered that we cannot find one of my son's black shoes and his slacks do not fit (different brand than usual.) I suggested we go shopping in the morning for another pair of shoes and more pants. My husband is threatening to stay at home as it is chaotic here. Of course we are way over packing. I hope we get to meet some of you on the cruise. It is too late for us to sign up for the various experiences planned by the group but hope to meet up with some of you. Anyone with a child our son's age, I hope they can make friends.

Hi. We are so glad you found us. Be sure to come to the Promenade Lounge on Deck 3 at 2:30 pm on sail away day. We are all meeting there for a Meet and Greet.
We have some fun things planned and there is always lots to do on the ship. See you soon. Sherry
