We have been wearing ours at home a bit. Saw some posts about can you wear them thru airport security. I am planning on putting them all in my carryon and we can put them on when we land in MCO before we board ME.
Can't believe its only 10 days away.
I never thought about being able to wear them through security. I guess ill just put them in our carry ons as well.

I've often thought of this, but then I just think....I ride the bus just to ride the bus. It's like tradition....I can leave my keys in the room, no worries about losing car keys and all that. It takes longer, but I just do it to do it...kinda neat to say "I haven't driven my car in two weeks!!!".

You could ask your imaginary friend Ronald about that...oh umm, that would be a whole other psychosis altogether now wouldn't it?

It is really not so much about saving time as it is frustration and the chaos at the end of the night especially after the MNSSHP parties. I have also been thinking about hitting the Premium Outlet mall for the Disney outlet and the Vera Bradley outlet.

I think I'll conveniently forget to pack everyone's goggles!
I don't know that I have ever worn goggle. I am not a swimmer, I'm a lounger. My kids though are fish and love there goggles....

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...

Thank you Wendy!

Once we park our car at the airport up here we don't have to drive again for a week....thats a nice thought. Let someone else cart us around. I'm looking forward to it.

I agree. I personally hate driving and worrying about parking and keys, blah, blah, blah. I just wanna go!

Those were our primary reasons to drive too! The saving time was an unexpected added bonus. Totally agree about MNSSHP. Last time we waited 1.25 hours for a bus, and then it broke down! We always stopped at that outlet mall too on our way home. With 6 of us plus a stroller, the bus' are chaotic, many times we have had to pass up a bus and wait for another because we all could not ride.

Just like Disney has everything down to a well organized science, so was the parking. We just pulled up to the gate and when they saw our resort parking, just waved us through. From there, no thinking/finding skills required. Disney parking patrol is there to guide you to your exact parking spot. This is extremely well thought out because you do not have to worry so much about cars crossing the lot; from your row forward all the cars are parked and there is no traffic.

Me too! And after being at the parks ALL day, we'll be too tired to drive. We did that last year. We stayed with my FIL about an hr south of Disney.....that was a VERY long drive at night.

I just can't wait to get there and be chauffeured around. Especially to be picked up at the airport. Counting the days, tomorrow will be at the 17 day mark.
