On my last trip, I never made it to rope drop and I loved it!

I absolutely despise packing, even for a disney trip. I am currently experiencing a mild case of packing anxiety. Just thinking about packing for anything makes me nervous and then I procrastinate until the last minute.

I totally over pack.. I'll take a suitcase the size of Cleveland for a 3 day stay somewhere.. My May trip will be 7 days/6 nights and I'll probably have two steamer trunks, a huge suitcase, and 2 carry-ons.. and I go solo!

- I bought a bunch of pins for myself...then gave them to the kids.
- Mary Poppins is my favorite movie...by a long shot (sorry, 007!)
- I still can't name all of the dwarves without using Comet and Cupid for 2 of them.
- I spent way too much time checking out the Biergarten girls.
- And Pocahontas.

Me too! I like having options so I usually pack about twice the amount of clothes/shoes I actually need, and then forget something important.

I'm exactly the same! There's nothing worse than getting there and wanting to wear an outfit but you can't, because you have all the pieces needed but no shoes that even slightly match, etc. The ironic thing is that I'll pack my suitcases to bursting, but then only wear a few of the same things the whole trip.

And don't get my started on how many times I've had to buy a new piece of luggage there just to get all my souvenirs home lol!

I really didn't like Soarin' that much. To me it didn't live up to the hype or being worth the long lines.

I hear ya! If I attempt to pare down, I will end up not packing something I'll need. Such as, last August or it could have been June or July, but some time last summer, I was paring down, and only took my 2 pairs of Birkenstocks sandals along with a pair of tennis shoes. Well, I know Disney in summer...and WHY did I not think I'd need water friendly shoes? Wet birkenstocks are just plain yucky!! I bought some water shoes at Blizzard Beach, but that was cause I nearly burned my feet off. Not having been to a water park in more than a decade, I forgot about hot pavement. Luckily, Disney is right there ready to sell me some!

In November, I brought shorts, capris and a skirt and the only jeans I brought were the ones I wore in the car...and no coat, I didn't think I'd need it south of VA, so I just brought a blanket in the car. So, I ended up having to wear my one pair of jeans over and over!! It was just so cold...and I only had one hoodie. I had looked at photos of previous Thanksgiving trips and determined that we were mostly shorts...but not in 2012!! In the winter, you need to bring everything!

Although...since Starbucks came out with VIA, I stopped bringing the Tassimo. I also have stopped bringing the margaritaville machine and the blender. Margaritas just taste better at EPCOT.

Oh my gosh you sound exactly like me and my siblings! Once my sister didn't pack a single thing warmer than a tank top - guess who had to buy a hoodie before we even got on the plane to fly to FL. Another summer I thought "what if there's a cold day??" and packed a coat that never left the suitcase. When I was there last week it was a nightmare - some days were below 50F in the mornings, other days it went up to 78F mid-day, and I had no plans to go back to the room. Some days I was wearing Uggs while everyone wore flipflops, other days I was shivering in a skirt while everyone else had gloves on. I'm not good at weather-planning, that's for sure!

Secret Shame is ... fun!

1. I have never visited WDW as an adult until a handsome coworker dude told me he LOVED WDW! Poof - many trips to WDW followed - I am just...that...shallow.

2. I became a AKL groupie and spend silly amounts of $$$ twice a year.

3. The coworker and I are no longer in contact - so now all my trips are solo... and I love it!!!

So selfish (and happy) am I!!!

You won't get flamed here right? Well I'll bite...

* I don't get why everyone loves The Lion King. I'm not saying it's a bad movie, it's not. It just seems people favor it over everything else.

* Aside from the Toy Story trilogy I think Disney sequels are unnecessary, especially the straight to DVD ones.

* I went to see High School Musical 3 and Hannah Montana the movie in theaters. Excluding the parents I was the oldest one there. (FYI I'm 27).

* I find myself watching Disney Channel and sometimes Disney Junior- I have no children and no younger siblings.
