I cannot believe that you have less than a month to go before you leave for your trip!! It's almost here!

Any luck finding a costume or have you considered making one? Just curious.

Hope all is well! Looking forward to hearing more.

Hey everyone!!!

OMG I can't believe the trip is coming up so soon! I've been going crazy trying to plan my OTHER friends bridal shower (way too many friends getting married this year!) so now that it's over, I finally have time to start getting REALLY excited and finishing up some last minute details!!

We had Lisa's bridal shower a few weeks ago and it was really nice! Everything was Cinderella/Disney themed, so cute! The cake had a castle topper, we played fun 'match the disney couple' games, got glass slippers as favors, etc. I was the official photographer but I used Lisa's camera and she still hasn't sent me the pics! If she does, I'll post some pics on here.

Sarah and I bought our costumes for the Pirate party! Sarah bought one first because she had another pirate bday party to go to (not Disney related). When i saw the costume, it was just like another one that I had seen, just in a different color. We ended up buying the same costumes, hers in red, mine in black. To make them more Disney-friendly, we're going to wear black leggings under the cosume and most likely sneakers. :D Maybe flip flops. haha! I'm just worried about how HOT it's going to be! I'm from the north east and need time to get used to the weather. Sarah's already used to this!

ok...just wanted to say hi to everyone. I'll try to add more when I have some free time at work!

Glad to hear you found a costume! Can't wait to see the pictures of what you'll be wearing! Are you sure about the black leggings? In May? In Disney? I say let the cool air hit those legs!

Got the costume!!! And it looks great! It's made very well, which kinda surprised me.

After trying on the costume, I'm thinking black leggings are a must, or at least black shorts. I found thin capri leggings online at Macy's, so I'm going to run there after work today and see if I can try them on. I'm also going to cross my fingers that it's a little cooler at night in the beginning of May, and also that it doesn't rain! I've been checking and it's been about 70 degrees every night there. Hopefully it can stay like that for another 2 and a half weeks?

I just talked to Lisa on the phone, and she's coming to the P&PP too! It's going to be her, her fiance, and her parents. Should be fun and I get to spend more time with them. I also think i'm going to give someone in her fam the extra dining reservations we have too. We have a lunch at Le Cellier but I realized we're going to be at the MK that day, and also a dinner at Tony's but we're going to Epcot that day. Her sisters husband has never been to Disney before ( ) so maybe they'll want to take the ressies from us.

16 more days!!!

Woo Hoo you got the costume and your countdown is getting smaller! I can't wait to see the pictures from the bridal shower, I would love to see the decorations and cake topper.

Also, will you be posting a pic of your costume? I can't wait to see it! And how great that your friend will be going to the P&PP too! I would think it would be a lot of fun to go with a group of people. Are they planning on wearing costumes too?

Ohhh!!! Exactly two weeks from now I'll be in DISNEY!!!! 14 days! yayyy!

I keep bugging Lisa to send me or post her pictures from the shower. Hopefully she does it before I have to head down to the wedding!

This is the costume that Sarah and I both have. Again..her's is red and mine is this black one. It's really nice in person and very well made. Can't wait to try it with the whole ensemble. I'm going to wear a pair of Nine West black ballet flats with the costume. I wear these to work every day and they're the most comfy things EVER! Also going to wear a thin pair of black leggings underneath. They're not too hot and look good with the rest of the outfit..



Sadly I don't think Lisa and her fam are going to dress up! It's short notice that they bought the party tix and they've all been running around with last minute wedding details. They might not be able to stay until close either since they have to wake up early for the wedding and the bride can't see the groom the day of! So I think Lisa's parents are forcing them to leave before the clock strikes midnight. Still going to be a great time!

That costume is awesome, and you are going to look great in it!! I think the black leggings are a good idea, hopefully they are the shorter capri style leggings to help keep you cool. And the flats are another good idea, it sounds like you've got everything covered. You guys are going to have a wonderful time!!

It will be so great if you can get a pic with handsome Captain Jack! And only 14 days to go! SWEET!

HAHA... I hate to say it but the MAIN reason I'm paying an extra $45 to go to the P&PP is JUST for a picture with Captain Jack! Heck... we'll even go back a few times if we have time! What's the chance that the Jack I saw during the Pirate Tutorial in Dec is the one taking pics? Probably not, but I'll cross my fingers! We're going to be in the MK that day already, so we'll pick up a schedule as soon as we can to see then the meet n' greet starts. Then we'll get changed probably around 5-ish or so (or maybe after dinner so we dont spill anything!) and then head to the get in line to meet Jack ASAP probably 30 mins before the official picture time. That way the costumes (and us) will look fresh...and not gross and sweaty if it's 900 degrees out that day!

oh! and yup! the leggings are capris I laugh that out of ALLL the things I should be worrying about for this trip... I'm worrying about a stupid pirate costume! I don't even have a dress for the wedding yet! EEK! hahahahahaha!

You might want to keep those spiked-heel black boots handy for a chance encounter with Captain Jack! (Love the costume, btw. Can't wait to see you put it all together!)

Small update!

So apparently my dad and step mom need to sit down and eat ALL day! I don't mind though, I keep telling myself this WILL be a relaxing facation!

We ended up making lots more dining reservations today and.... WE GOT EVERY SINGLE ONE THAT WE ASKED FOR!!! Which leads me to believe that... cross my fingers.... the parks might not be TOO crowded. REALLY?! I know it's a slower time. But I think when I went in Dec it was supposed to be even slower than now and we had a problem getting reservations everywhere!

So here's what we have (I have to remember from memory..the list is at work)

Wed:
- dinner at Chefs de France
Thurs:
- breakfast Kona
- lunch either Coral Reef or Tokyo Dining (I forget which was final choice)
- dinner at Le Cellier
Fri:
- breakfast at Grand Floridian Cafe
- lunch at Liberty Tree Tavern
- dinner for dad and step mom at Citricos (I'll be at the P&PP!)
Saturday:
- breakfast Kona
- lunch for dad at either tony's or LTT (I'll be at the wedding)
- dinner for dad at Narcooses (I'll be at wedding)
Sunday:
- breakfast at Ohana

Also, since it's going to be mothers day on sunday, I'm going to call the Disney florist or somewhere else (going to research right now!) and on Wednesday when we get there, have flowers either waiting for my step mom when we get there or have them delivered to the room. I didnt want them sent on Sunday b/c we're leaving and she can't take them on the plane! At least now she can enjoy them for a few hours when we're in the hotel room!

OK.... time to go research some flowers!!!

Have a good night everyone!
