Finally able to get over here and take a look! Your plans look so fun! I haven't tried goofy's yet, but can't wait to next year! maroo and I also have Boma's planned. Sci-Fi is really fun, I think you'll like it a lot.

Those handy-dandy little schedule thingys are great to have. Make sure you put 5 or 6 fun little things you want to do each day as well, like find the hidden Mickey at such and such a place, or listen for the music lessons on Main Street, etc.... then you'll have little notes to jog your memory with you.

Too much planning?!? No such thing!!

So, thee are my 3 current favourite books:



Now, any normal (read non-Disser) person would think this was maybe overkill.....

But not for this crazy lady! I got very excited reading about peoples home made planning binders over on the WDW tips board, and had to have me one of those!

I also know my passporter is a bit big to carry to the parks, so that was my main excuse.

This is it so far:

I love your planning binder!! And no such thing as having too many books about Disney to help with planning.

The passporter is awesome!!

Although I'm worried my planning book might make it a bit obsolete, but it has loads of gret into and I do love the pockets!

Hi there! You wil loovvvvve AKL! I will be there (@ Kidani) October 4-9th. You can NEVER plan too much or too far ahead.
I have eaten at many of the restaurants that you request for your ADR's so if you have any questions about that or the resort I will try to help you.
p.s. love your carry on and your potential bag!!

Oooh, I also thought I'd post my LGMHs I made a while back.

The outline and pretty bow was originally one of the wonderful creative DISigners ideas - I can't remember who - but if you read this - Thank you for the inspiration!!!! I borrowed your idea and turned it green to carry around the parks with me!

Hi Torsie,

Love your notebook! It's very creative and thorough, and just the right size for taking to the parks each day. But I REALLY love your LGMHs! I'm going to pass this idea along to maroo and see if she'll make some for our Sept, 2010 trip. Can you tell us exactly how you did it?? Are they another of your amazing creative photoshop thingys you do?

I found over on the creative DISigns board, a black minnie head with the bow on. Which I then changed to green in photoshop and put my text on.

The hardest part was cutting round it right...and making sure they laminated back-to back ok.

If you want the same ones I can put your guys names on some, easy peasy.

Cool beans!! I'd so love that! I'll PM you

I know I want some, and I'll ask Maroo if she wants the same.

I love your planning book! I need to figure out some kind of journal because I love the idea of keeping up with what we've done day-to-day. I'm also wondering about the PassPorter. Do you buy a new one every year or use the same one all the time?

This is my first one, but I chose the deluxe as I have the wedding inserts for it, and will also just buy the new inserts for my trip.

A change to our ADR plans


So, I previously mentioned our dining plans, but they have changed a little. I think we have a definitive list now though, although days are yet to be arranged:

'Ohana Breakfast - For a 10.30 reservation on a MK EMH day so we can have an hour or two in the park and work up an appetite.

Boma Breakfast - For the morning after either MNSSHP or our long day at Universal

GF Cafe Lunch - On the day of our wedding planning meeting.


T-Rex Lunch -
Jack is desperate to eat here!

WCC Dinner - Either before MNSSHP or before our Spectro/Wishes night

Kona Dinner - Either before MNSSHP or before our Spectro/Wishes night

Jiko Dinner - Towards the end of the trip.

Any thoughts will be greatly recieved!

Mmm....reading about ADR's make me so hungry!!

Topdog mentioned going to Kona for breakfast in his TR. It sounded so good! He mentioned macadamia nut pancakes and French pressed Kona coffee. Hang on, gotta wipe drool off my keyboard. Ok...anyway...I just wonder why people choose to eat dinner here instead of breakfast!
