So sorry...I'm traveling this week and don't have my computer...this is the first time I've been able to get online. I'm glad you found the "How to Personalize DISigns with MS Word" thread, and have been able to use the directions. Way to go!!!

Where can I get the personalized gift notes.

I think they are in Natilie's file, but I can not find her link to request them. Anyone know how to get them?

Look in Natalie's 4shared file:
http://www.4shared.com/dir/5978989/a...s_DISigns.html

I think the ones you are lookin for are in the "gift tag" file. Natalie is not personalizing right now but it is super easy to save them as a jpeg to your pictures. Then open up a word document and insert the picture. Then insert an textbox over that to personalize the note.

You can find detailed instructions for how to personalize DISigns using MS Word on this thread (if you have Word):

Okay, I have been trying to figure out a dining punch card! Do you make one for each person to keep up with dining plan?

I am intrigued!

I'm so glad that it worked for you with a Mac version of Word! I know your trip will be amazing!!! I think the best advice I can give is...if you make nothing else...make an autograph book if you like meeting the characters. A personalized autograph book makes meeting them extra special and most make a big deal over their cards.

First thing...don't get overwhelmed. Your kids will be so excited by the trip that if you don't make a single thing it is perfectly fine.

I would suggest since you have 8 months. Start with a simple planning journal so that you can plan out your vacation, like what days you will be at specific parks, extra things you would like to do like Bibbity Boppity Boo Make Over or MVMCP/MNSSHP. Also, a planner will help you to get your meals organized!

Include in you planner a list of things you would like to make or buy and then you can check them off. Maybe pick just a few things and then if you get them made...add some more. I always suggest planning some set time weekly or at least once a month where you can sit down and get some crafting done.

Some musts (depending on the age of your children):

T-shirts (you can make or buy them)

Autograph books (older age kids may not be interested in these but they are GREAT for little ones and character meals)

Travel Bags for the kids: I love putting backpacks together with fun things to keep the kids occupied in the car or plane. You don't even have to make anything for this. Go to the Dollar Tree as they have TONS of great Disney things like coloring books, puzzles, toys, games, playing cards, crayons that you can throw in a backpack or bag. Don't forget to throw in a few snacks as well when you get closer to your date of travel!

Some things to do next (if you have the time and desire):

Daily Journal for the kids: there are lots of great ones out there...but if you want one that is already set up in MS Word and doesn't require a TON of ink...check mine

Epcot Passport

You still have several months to go and are really getting into the trip:

Mickey's Grand Welcome
