SINGLE DIGIT DANCE PARTY!!!!

I cannot believe I leave for my trip/conference in 9 DAYS!! I am so excited, but I am reworking my plans yet again. We've been invited to dinner at The Wave with our Disney Rep. Can't wait to try it out! That will be Monday night, so now I have to reselect my FP+ picks. AH!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Yay for single digits! We toured the Wave while we did our CR site inspection. I'll have to try it one day!

I have heard wonderful things about The Wave. I'm looking forward to both of my dinners.

Madison looks so cute to start middle school! My little brother starts tomorrow also for 6th grade. I can't believe he's so old! I'm nervous for him because he's pretty shy so I hope he makes friends.


Your shoes are adorable and what great deals you got!

I like the plan to go to MK on Sunday and DTD on Tuesday.

Can't believe we're so close!

You're leaving so soon! Eep! You're plans sound like so much fun! My conference next month is actually at the Orlando Conference Center so it's definitely not as Disney centric as yours. I'm trying to change that though, especially with Food and Wine being there at the same time!

Can't wait to hear about Cali Grill! I haven't been to Disney with all this Magic Band and FP+ stuff, that I think I'll be totally out of the loop on how to tour!

Like all the outfits you have planned, of course. I've seen some cute things at Target lately too (Disney sweatshirts and all).

Hi Meghan! I'm back and just caught myself up! I hope you have a great time at your conference! Question-- is the convention center the blue and white striped building in front of the tower or is it in the tower itself?? I couldn't figure out what that front building was this trip!

Thanks! I am not always a big "shoe" person, but I couldn't resist these!

I cannot wait to test out the Magic Bands, FP+ (even though we tested it last year), and eat at new places!

Aw, thanks! She didn't want to wear a dress, but she picked out a skirt. We couldn't find something cute to pair with the skirt and then the first day wasn't that warm.

I love finding deals!

I have decided to stick with that plan...MK on Sunday and DTD on Tues.

Only 5 more days!!!!

I am so excited for so many reasons. I know I'll miss my family like crazy, but I'll bring back goodies for them.

The FP+/Magic Band stuff should be very cool. I love new technology.

My Target doesn't do a good job at carrying Disney clothing for adults. The kids departments are always stocked, but not women's.

Hi there! I hope you had a great trip. I just looked through some of your photos on FB.

The Convention Center is the blue & white building in front of the CR. Can't wait to check it out!

5 Days!

Hi everyone! I cannot believe that I leave in just 5 days! I am so excited but this week is very busy for me. Iím starting to stress out!!! I have lots of clients traveling to WDW in October, so Iím trying to get a jump start on itineraries for them, last minute details, etc so Iím not overwhelmed when I get back home. Madison also started fall dance classes last night and Iíll be heading back to the studio tomorrow night. Canít forget about Coleís speech therapist and teacher who are doubled up on visits this week (they come to the house), training some of my team members on My Magic+ stuff, chiropractor appointment tonight, meeting with clients later this week, and most importantlyÖ.my hair appointment on Saturday!! The roots need major help and Iím thinking about cutting it again (see pics from my Sept 2010 TR).

I went shoe shopping again on Saturday at Famous Footwear. They had a Buy One Get One Ĺ off sale and I also had a 20% off coupon for being a member of their reward program. I needed some comfy shoes for the resort site visit on Monday, but they needed to look good with a sundress.


These are like walking on pillows! I believe they were $29.99 which is more than I would normally spend, but the 20% coupon helped.


I normally wear Old Navy flip flops to the parks, but I decided to get something with some arch/heel support (finallyÖmy mother will be so proud). These were normally $19.99 but with the Ĺ off promo they were $9.99. Again, the 20% coupon took off even more. I paid around $27 for both pairs with tax. Iíll wear these while visiting the parks.

I know that I keep going over my plans, but now they will NOT be changing. Sorry if you are absolutely sick of reading about my plans! I donít have much else to share right now.

Sunday, Sept 15th
-Land at 5:45pm; grab bags and take ME to the CR; check-in
-Head to the MK for some dinner and to watch Celebrate the Magic and Wishes. EMH is 11pm-1am this evening.

Under the Sea 10-11pm


Monday, Sept 16th

-MK for more fun and BOG lunch (arrive between 10:50 and 11:05am)
-FP+ selections are:

Under the Sea 10-11am
Peter Panís Flight 11am-12pm

-Dinner at The Wave at 5:30pm
-Hoping to run into the MK after dinner to use that last FP pick

Tuesday, Sept 17th
-Conf all day until 1pm
-DTD/Check out resort/swim?
-Dinner at Cali Grill at 7pm

Maelstrom 11am-12pm
Spaceship Earth 2-3pm

Test Track isnít on the list because Iíll use the Single Rider line
-Magical Express pick-up at the CR around 3:30pm

There are so many souvenirs Iíd like to pick up while Iím there.
-2013 ornament and pin
-New mug/travel mug
-Magic Band accessories
-Duffy outfit for Madison
-New Epcot shirt?

I also always pick up new park maps so I can include them in my clientís documents. Gotta stock up! I also want to check out the 2 new Starbucks locations, try LeFouís brew, have a yummy cinnamon roll, and I must eat at Sunshine Seasons. My fav!

I will definitely post a packing update (trying to figure out when Iím going to do that)!

LeFou's brew is yummy! I tried it during my AEP and bought both of the souvenir mugs because I thought they were so cute!

I long ago gave up flip flops in the park. It wasn't so much my feet that hurt but my legs! Ouch! Plus the ON flip flops are so cheap they sometimes leave blisters where the straps are.

Your plans look great!

I can't wait to try it! I heard the foam is the best part.

I have not had any problems wearing ON flip flops on my trips, but I know they're not good for me. I used Body Glide (runners use it; anti-chaffing) for my feet. I apply it anywhere that could run my feet the wrong way. I can't stand sneakers (only wear them when running) and during the winter I live in my Uggs. I don't own any other kind of shoes besides high heels!

Thanks! Of course we got an email today letting us know they're giving us complimentary MNSSHP tickets for Tuesday evening. AH! I would be super happy about this, but that's the night I'm eating at Cali Grill.

The shoes look great! I was tempted to hit up the same sale but I steered clear... I don't need anymore shoes!!
I don't wear flips in the parks usually unless its only for a short period of time... I stick with sneaks. I love uggs in the winter... I live in them too!

LeFou's brew is delicious! I've read some people think its too sweet but I really like it!

You are so close we can count on one hand!!

I especially love your first set of new shoes...those would go totally perfect with sundresses! I adore them!

Your plans look so great! I'm eagerly awaiting FB posts!

Oh man, you are busy this week! It'll fly by!

I can't believe they waited this long to tell you about MNSSHP. Will you still be able to make any of it?

Have fun packing!
