Jiko Dinner, wanted 8pm, got 8.20 so another great one!!!

Grats on your ADRs!

I read that you call the Grand Floridian Bakery @ (407) 824-2578
48 hours in advance of your ADR for the slipper (I hope this info is correct!)

You got some great ones!

The only ones I haven't done before are Jiko and GF cafe. And I enjoyed all of them! We've done Sci Fi and Boma for breakfast twice.

Our T-Rex meal is still to come in my TR.

Hi Hun

Can't wait to hear about T-Rex, I love your latest TR installment, it's really making me want to go during F&GF!

Wowsie, Torsie! Those are some awesome ADR's- just the right times, I'd day!

I def. would call back on slipper dessert. I'd always heard they have to be pre-ordered.

Congrats!

Hi Torise,

I have been a bit of lurker on trip reports and the wedding boards and found your PTR and thought I would stop in and say hi!

I too got a little excited and made a PTR also(Fit to Burst!!! http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2199122)I actually booked our trip while James was at work, I told him about the deal but I don't think he actually thought I would book it! I got AKL fever and didn't think any other hotels would make the grade.

Love your bags, its making me think I need more! Your cat is so cute with the the laser light!

OMG - how did Oliver (my black cat) get to the UK?!? I swear, he looks just like your cat.

Enjoying your PTR so far -and I know I'm just getting started. Sounds like we'll be both in Epcot on the 5th (DD and I are going to pick-a-pearl, too-its our first time!) and at US/IOA on the 7th. Maybe we'll run into each other!

Hi lacy!! Hee, you'll have to post a picture of Oliver.

Eee, how exciting we have some of the same plans! I definitely keep an eye out for you! Are you going to carry LGMHs?

I'll work on the pic, torsie24! I don't seem to already have one on my computer.

I had sent you a PM a few days ago about getting the LGMH that you designed. I'll carry those for sure if you don't mind sharing with me.

Hey Torsie!

Great news on your Jiko and Bomas!!! That's fantastic!

How are your other plans coming??

Hi lacy1101!!

You live in South Central KY??? My whole family lives in Bowling Green, and I know the next time I'm around there (next Aug. when I take my son to go to Western in BG), we could get another fun DISmeet together, maybe in Nashville or something. You up for it??

Sorry for the delay everyone! I have recently discovered crochet and I'm making a huge blanket that's keeping my really busy!

So I think perhaps this is a little premature - but I have bought SO much stuff for the trip that on SUnday I got out my big pink suitcase and put all the bits in it that I wont need until the trip, so far I have packed:

- 4 bottles of sun cream (took advantage of all the buy 1 get 1 free offers on at the moment)
- a huge after sun lotion
- 2 little bottles of spf 15 spray lotion for park bags
- blister band aids I got on buy 1 get 1 free
- tea tree face wipes (I take one or two in a zip lock round the parks to wipe my face and then re-apply suncream as my skin gets awful otherwise!)
- small and large zip lock bags (always handy!)
- shower gel and a loofah thingy
- pain killers and IBS medicine
- some disney underwear I got
- eye make up remover pads
- those ace travel size bits you get - mouthwash/baby powder/toothpaste etc.
- aqua shoes for TL/BB
- washing powder tablets
- mini mister fans
- peppermint foot spray and lotion
- one of my park bags

In my carry on bag which is currently also in the case I have

- inflatable travel pillow
- sunglasses
- $11 in singles and a $5 that my mum bought me back from her recent holiday (handy for tipping!)
- fairfx card (currently only got about $400 on)

So as you can see I still have LOADS left to add (mainly clothes!!!! LOL) but this way I can now keep adding to the case whenever I find bits to take or buy new bits.

I also paid off Disney in full yesterday!! Which made me really excited!

AND did our ESTAs so we're no legally granted entry into the USA!

And I got an awesome deal on Universal park tickets with Mears transport to and from our hotel.

Yaaaaaaaay, it's all coming together so nicely!!

You are so like me - I start packing as soon as I buy stuff! All adds to the excitement! Only problem is I never seem to have much room left for clothes at the end!!!
