That's one of the things I like best about the Dis! I feel much more "normal" here among the super planners and die-hard Disney freaks.

There is no need for friends and family to realize the true depths of my obsession!

If I go to the actual BOG/Fastpass site my reservation and my meal order shows right up but it's not on my MDE list of reservations/FP+ times.
Did not for me... I just printed it out, but didn't need it, they had my name.

When we give a Disney gift, we use the bag it comes in as wrapping (they tend to be very cute!). We add curly-ribbon in the handle and it always gets a great response.

At our dollar store, they sell Disney bags, too...I use those when I do not get a bag from the store. I like things that can be reused.

Just an idea...

Well, I won't do a trip report in one post, but we're still here and still alive. Monday was out 24th anniversary, and we were at MK mostly. Quite crowded, compared to what we had done, and very hot. Did lunch at BOG... Neat building. The FP+ worked fine. DW loved the pork, and I liked the ham. DS ate part of my ham... He had the turkey, and it was OK, but he didn't care for the mayo stuff on it.

Went to the room and was going to swim, but thunderstorms came through. We chilled a while and went back. It was much cooler after the rain. Had dinner reservations at 940 at the castle... Royal Table. They were backed up, and apparently the 940 reservation had been a glitch which had happened a couple of Mondays. The latest is supposed to be 935, which messed them up a little, but they were great with it, took care of everybody, etc. Just took a bit.

Talk about embarrassing the 13 year old, that did it :-)

The park magic hours went until 0100 and we closed the park... Grand fun :-)

Thanks for the update . Glad you didn't have too much hassle with your ressie!

Oooh!! We were lucky when we were on our trip last year and MK had the 1am closing time. My DS (then 3) rocked out 4 parks in one day like a champ! Ok, a champ who took an excellent nap in the stroller before conquering the Barnstormer 13x in a row, but still!

I'm hoping we get to experience a late night like that again. It was so peaceful after a harried day.

Are you wearing your MBs from home? I still need to adjust mine. Did you cut yours down? Or was that Ald? I know Smitch did. I am nervous I am going to mess them up. Lol.
I wonder if the resort gift shops are carrying accessories for the MBs yet?

We live in the north, so not using summer clothes anymore. Went through everything to make sure we have enough clothes for everyone. Not sure what to expect for weather, forecast has been all over the place from 81-84, then 87-89, today looks wet most days. Plan to wear jeans, jackets on the plane, packing tshirts, shorts and maybe one pair of capris. Toiletries good to go. Need to organize my paperwork; taking it as back up in case there is a problem with the bands.

10 days to go, I feel on top of what needs to be done;suitcases come up from the basement this weekend. getting close....
