Sounds like you have a great trip planned! I'm really impressed that you are making your costumes!!

DD and I are also at DHS on 19th Sept - hope to be there for rope drop - we'll be wearing our t shirts with lime green mickey heads on - say hi if you see us! We'll have a look out for all of you wearing your dalmatians costumes at MNSSHP as we'll also be there on the 22nd Sept!

Have a great trip!

I Finished our MNSSHP costumes today, I've sewn all the ears onto the hats. I'm pleased with how they look and the kids are happy with them.

Orderd some little einstine material for the dress I want to make DD for Hollywood and Vine...hope it comes quickly as it's from the US!!!! Couldn't find any in the UK.

Tried to order the kids cake today from Pat at the GF bakery, but only got the answer machine, left a message but I will call again tomorrow.

I'm now toying with the idea of booking DD into the bibidee bobidee boutique....don't think I would book for the full package as it costs about $200....not even sure if their will be any availability....

DD wants a disney fairies dress...got the pattern but it looks so hard...and to top it off she keeps changing her mind about what fairy she wants to be!!!

Not sure where I'm going to get the time from

I thought I would give a bit of an update on my planning......

After alot of debating with DH, we booked DD, Moli into the Bibbidi bobbidi boutique. We couldn't get the day we originaly wanted but had availability on the 26th Sept @ 12.30. We have booked her the Coach package as it was the mid range option.......couldn't realy justify $200 with the costume, so I thought I would take my own.

She wants a Disney Faries dress, I got the pattern, so thought I would make her one. She has finaly decided that she wants to be tinkerbell. So I ordered the material today...hope it comes soon!!!

I have been trying to order the cake for the kids but keep getting Pat @ the GF answer phone...I have left a few messages but I don't think she will call the UK....aarrgghh

I got a chip n dale iron on for my son, Ieuan. Put it on a plain white tshirt tonight, he's realy pleased with it and it will be great for our Garden Grill dinner.

Also booked another ADR, for the Plaza Resturant on the 26th @ 14.50

Now I'm thinking about booking the Pirates League for Ieuan....he's 10 but I'm sure he will love it.....DH, Rich will be killing me before long.....I just cant stop adding to the holiday

Update

Managed to order a cake for the kids. Pat at the GF bakery was lovely and she gave me her email address, so that I could get in touch easier.

I ordered a 8in yellow cake with buttercream. I went for a pirate/Princess theme with 'have a magical trip Ieuan and Moli' on it.

I can't wait to see it

I finished Moli's dress for Animal Kingdom on Sunday and I made Ieuan a matching tshirt today

here are some pics:

Sounds that you are going to have a great trip. The dresses that you have made are brilliant I wish I was creative but I struggle to even put scout badges on for ds so don't think I can manage to make dresses

Just a quick update....

I have nearly finished Moli's Tinkerbell dress, boy it was hard, just need to finish the wings tomorrow.

I made Ieuan's Super Sleuth Tshirt and mine and Rich's Animal Kingdom Tees.

I also got a lucifer and Gus iron on's as I thought I would put them on a tee for Ieuan to wear to 1900 park fare.

Little Einstines Material arrived today so I should finish that dress tomorrow.....

Just packing to do
