I start a Word document and just cut-n-paste what I want to remember. I do this from these boards and any where else I come across something. Sometimes I group by subject - such as activities, food, etc. I review it when I get closer to the trip. I then print and take with me. I have also been known to love our laminator at work!

I even did a food sheet last time. I put on the sheet the places where we wanted to eat or snack at along with the food that others recommended- like the Grand Marnier slushies in EPCOT. It was a great reference when we were getting hungry and trying to make a decision. I wanted to make sure that I tried the "must haves" - especially at EPCOT.

As you can tell, I think I am borderline OCD when it comes to Disney planning but without a plan, I am useless!

I use Microsoft Word to make a grid calendar with 21 squares. I have my park hours, adr's and a note as to where we should be in the morning and evening. In the empty squares I put notes like which way the boats run between Epcot and DHS, snacks I want to try and Jack Sparrow's Cell phone number.

When my DH and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary last year, we encountered a certain someone in the rainforest of Puerto Rico:

Pixarmom probably already pointed you in this direction, but here is the link to a trip report by eandesmom:

You'll never get me on a cruise. Unless it's to ALASKA"

Cynthia is a great writer and she has some spectacular pictures and really detailed info from her cruise.

From what I'm gathering from all of my reading here, I believe you can see your ADRs online and cancel/change them at any time, correct? (Assuming times are available, of course.) I guess this is through your online Disney account, right? Well if you make them with the IPO office are you still able to see them online to cancel or make changes, or do you have to go through the IPO office every time?

Thanks!

Is it waterproof? Won't we get a weird suntan line? What if they drive my son (whom has special needs) crazy?

Thanks!
Anyone have any input on these topics?

I'm hoping they sell autograph books, I'd like to buy them one each and then wrap them up as a way of telling them! They are going to love SAB!!


I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.

Let us know how the surprise goes over!

I feel like the little boy with his finger in the dike. Every time I look away for a minute, there's more people to add to the guest list.

Not that there's anything wrong with that!!!


Post 15: Be Our Guest list


Please take a moment to look over the list to make sure I have your info listed correctly, and most importantly, that I didn't forget to include you!!!

Thanks!

Dee

Medicgirl177... The wristband is not active yet, so we do not have confirmed answers on that one. I assume it will be waterproof. I also assume it could cause a tan line. Keep watching for more info.

Guess who I just heard from???

Our Island Hopping friend Teena.



She sent me some messages about the cruise and some pictures. I think I will upload to the Princess Lily report, so I'll give everyone a heads up when I have done that.

She and Bob are in St. Thomas today, so she is able to use her phone without incurring international charges.

I believe they are back on Saturday.
