The Unofficial Guide With Kids--I actually just bought on Saturday so I've not finished it yet. I like it so far because everything in that book is geared to those with kids.
You'll be amazed how quickly that binder fills up -- everytime I start one, I think "Oh, look, it's so much skinnier than last year's." Then, by the end, it is absolutely bulging.

Let me know when you finish the UG with Kids -- does it seem to be geared more towards families with younger kids or all ages of kids?

I laughed at all your guidebooks, I think I bought just as many or more back when I planned my 2007 trip.

I look forward to filling my binder!! Yes, I'm a big dork when it comes to organization!!

It seems to be geared to kids of all ages. There are 3 kids (a range of ages--16, 12, & 8) who give their insight/tips throughout the book. Also, everytime they rate the rides, attractions, etc. it is rated by appeal of age: preschool, grade school, teens, young adults, over 30, and seniors--each age group is rated with stars. Touring plans are included that are created specifically with those with small children, tweens, etc. I hope this helps!

goodies for out trip

I forgot to share with you what I picked up at Target today while the girls were at preschool!! (I LOVE me some Tarjay!!) I grabbed a Disney Princess Color Wonder set and a Minnie Mouse coloring book for Ally for our trip! Ally just LOVES Color Wonder--I do, too--no mess!!

They had a Tinkerbell set that had glitter pens (along with the markers). Anyone ever tried these? Are they messy? Just curious--it looked pretty cute.

Well, I saw a pair on their website that I loved (the brown/pink Disney MJ's) so I searched elsewhere for them. I ended up finding them in my size and on sale at http://www.surfanddirt.com!! I ordered them last Wed. and they arrived last night. (My Crocs shipment isn't due for delivery until Friday!) I wore them today and I just LOVE the way they fit/feel. I have several other pairs of Crocs (regular style) but this is my first time buying the MJ's for myself. I'm so glad that I decided to order them!! (BTW--the ones I ordered from crocs.com were the black/red and the l.pink/h.pink pairs) Take a look!


Today I also worked on my Disney binder (I've found so many wonderful threads here for ideas). Here is a pic of the front (still working on organizing the inside--if you'd like to share yours or ideas, please do!!):


And I thought I'd share a pic of all the Disney planning books I've bought. Think I have enough?
I just love those shoes and I think you might have enough books to read the front cover of your binder looks so cute where did you get that I am starting one for my sister when I take her to WDW next spring I need to get Ideas would you mind directing me to the thread you where reading and got your ideas?

See, I was gonna finish reading and then come bakc and reply, but this one stopped me dead in my tracks! I have all of those books except one. I have to show this to dh tonight. He thinks I'm the only one like this. . .

Anyway, love your TR! Love seeing how involved in the church your family is. And your girls are absolute cuties!

Wow you got every planning book, guess you will be reading a lot. I love the crocs! I also started my binder again this year. It's nice to have a place to throw all my planning stuff. I just have to print out a cover.

I'm cracking up at all those guide books. If I weren't so cheap I'd have that many too. I take the kids to the bookstore and look at them there.

I'm going to be the voice of dissent and suggest you think about Magic Kingdom for arrival evening. Relax at your resort & unwind and then head over to MK maybe around 3:30 and hope to see a parade and some fireworks. Take it easy with the girls and just enjoy the park. You're way too close to MK (being at the Poly) to not do it. We're at CBR but we are planning on heading to MK for our first day, even if it's just to be there.

I love Color Wonder stuff too! Emily doesn't keep markers away from the couch so Color Wonder is a must!! She also likes the finger paints!

The Crocs are cute. I've never tried the MJ style. I have the adara and I'm waiting patiently for the flip-flops.

I'm getting a few color wonders for our trip too!!!
All of your planning books should keep you busy. I really want to get the Birnbaums' guide for kids, I think my dd9 would love to read through that. Actually that's a good Easter basket gift.
As for the crocs, I always buy them for the kids, but i've never had a pair myself, I'm really thinking about getting some for this trip.
