Not yet! I'm hoping it's because I made changes to the reservation. I've still got some time though.

My Mickey mail came today but it still shows Pop Century. I am sure they'll send another package. I'll call them tomorrow and make sure.

Great updates, great pics, great ghost stories, and especially great news about upgrading. I get so excited about our 1st trip to CBR after reading this thread.

My kids are going to go bananas after hearing about the spit trick; they are so crazy that they will probably try to spit anywhere they can to attract any kind of animal--any excuse to get an accidental spit on their sibling!

Loved your calendar; unfortunately we can't do one because as of now our trip is still a secret. Our last 2 trips were secrets too, and they almost found out on the last one. They are getting older and sharper so I don't know if it will last. If it does, we for sure will make a calendar. Where did you get the mickey heads, or did you cut them all out?

How many more days are left?
At least you are now all caught up.

I, too, am getting super excited about our upcoming CBR stay. I didn't realize just how much I was going to miss the resort.

Definitely tell the kids about spitting down into the water. The fish will come. And, if a little spit happens to get on the other sibling......... We've had worse things get on a sibling. Remember the booger story.

Last year, I couldn't do any kind of countdown and I could make any decorations for our window because it was a secret. It was hard to keep everything hidden.

The large Mickey heads are paint samples from Home Depot. The come on square cards. I used my scrapbooking scissors to cut around the heads. The little small ones are from a Mickey shaped hole punch.

Yay for Mickey mail!!! Even if it was the wrong package..... Your new package is probably already on it's way. When did you change? a couple weeks ago? I would call though just to make sure.

Totally awesome. Makes it seem really close. Even if it is the wrong place. This next month will go so fast.

I figure they'll send a replacement package out soon because I just changed resorts last week. I'll call them just to make sure though. Is it totally naughty of me to wonder if these vouchers AND the vouchers in the replacement are good?

LOVE your countdown calendar. It's so colorful! I can't believe you're just over a month. By the time you get back I'll be right around a month out so your new TR can keep my OFF the edge of my seat (maybe ).

Does Hunter wear glasses? I don't think I've seen him in glasses before now.

Did you get the picture of the book (see? intrigued.)

I'm dying to do a countdown calendar, but, of course, I can't. My kids are still pretty much oblivious, though. I'm hoping they stay that way till we hit the arch.

This is the way I count the days until vacation and just about anything else. I don't count today because it's already here. I don't count the day we leave because, well, it's the day we leave. John thinks that is the stupidest way to countdown so to indulge him, I put the day we leave on the countdown. When I took the picture, we hadn't marked off two days. So, not counting today but counting the day we leave, we have just 29 days until we leave for 10 days of Disney fun!

Hunter started wearing glasses in September of last year so that's why there were no glasses in the Disney pictures. Now, he has glasses and contacts. When he wears his contacts depends on how lazy he is that day.

I did take pictures of the book. I'll go download them right now.

Impressive on the contacts. DS8 has glasses for a year now. I cannot remotely see him attempting contacts before 16 unless he has a personality change.



I'm sure your other Mickey Mail is in the Mail. We got two as I added the DDP. Two packets is a GOOD thing.

It means..

Extra luggage tags!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wouldn't that be great to have doubles of everything. Maybe at least the arcade cards would work in each.

Great countdown calendar, I like it. Oh, how I can't wait to get ours going again. We loved ours so much that it is still hanging up, but of course with no days on it. "Soon enough" I keep telling myself "soon enough"
