More 30 year old Pics

I had promised some more 30 year old pictures, and finally got around to scanning them. (It's no problem really, considering how young I look in these! It's nice to be reminded. )

Here is a little trip down memory lane.
First, walking down Main Street toward the castle. Next, Captain Hook took me by surprise!



Here's a view of Space Mountain. The Wedway People Mover is nearby.



Downtown Disney (Disney Village at the time) looked very different.



But Cinderella's Castle is timeless!



I have been busy updating my packing lists. Today I start packing in earnest! 3 MORE DAYS!!

If anyone needs great designs for Mousekeeping envelopes, there is a super thread here. I have printed my touring plans, my crowd calendars, my packing lists, and now I am about to print my envelopes and a few fun sheets for the DGS and DGD. I went back to Wal-mart today and I HOPE I am through shopping. I just picked up contact paper to cover everything and a blow-up plastic bath pillow to sit on for parades, plus a few snacks. Everything else was stock-up groceries for my Mom. My college age granddaughter is staying with her at night while we're gone, but I wanted to make sure they both had plenty to eat! She is 94, so doesn't get around too well any more, but is still mentally sharp. Just two and a half days left now!!!!

Okay, just talked to DD and we are both kind of freaking out - not quite as far along on finishing preparations as we would like to be. We both just checked in and printed our boarding passes for tomorrow morning's flights, though. I stayed up rather late last night printing out a bunch of stuff - menus from the restaurants, snack possibilities on the dining plan, important information for reference, touring plans, etc. (Also paying bills, etc.) I am waiting until this afternoon to print the final itineraries though. I have almost everything washed and waiting on the spare bed to be packed. I have a haircut and color appointment in an hour, and will pick up the last few odds and ends while out then come home and finish. EEK, I'm incredibly excited and rather stressed all at once!!! DH and I moved, edged, and "weed-ate" the yard yesterday morning just before it rained, then he left to go down to the lake to mow the yard at the camp. So he is relaxing now while I run around like a chicken with my head cut off! (Actually that's better - he'd just get in my way right now!) Okay, I am out of here for now. ONE MORE DAY!!

Me too!!!! I know exactly how you're feeling. Somehow it doesn't feel quite real yet. Probably because I haven't finished packing.

Maybe I'll see you around Pop. It looks like the weather is going to be nice.

Thanks to everyone!! I have made the last shopping trip, printed the last itinerary, and washed the last load of clothes, so all that remains is to load it all into the suitcases and try to sleep a little before 4:30 am. I'll probably be too excited to sleep much!! We have an hour's to New Orleans to catch the plane so have to get an early start. I'll be on the watch for other Fockers and LGMH's and I'll take lots of pictures to share when I return. Thanks for the good wishes - I'll talk to you when I get back and let you know how the plans worked! Looks like rain/tstorms on Sunday but nice weather the rest of the time.
