Same reason we hang out with you!!

Confirmed! I got off the phone with Southwest. Shades of my ADR reservation experience I pressed '1' to be called back between 19 to 23 minutes... they never called. I called again to wait another 19 to 23 minutes only to have my cordless die on me 15 minutes in Finally spoke to a person only to have her tell me how to do it myself on their website

I rebooked and got the $125 credit, I have to use it before mid April 2010.

My TA also gave me a tip that my flight had gone down $125 and to call Southwest to request a credit to be used within 1 year of my booking. I'm on hold right now, hopefully that works. I talked to the DH about it and he was like, "$125 ? That's not bad." And you know what I got out of that?? Here we come Disney 2010 !!!!!!!!

Favorite Organizing Tip

Hey all. Its been a bit since I did a planning type post (again!...sorry ) so before I post Day 4, I thought I would mention my favorite organizer for trips. This may be a well known thing for all I know, but I only discovered it on my third trip and I would have loved to have had it for the other two.

Drum roll please! ...... the dollar store coupon holder! (Please hold your applause until the end, and my apologizes to anyone right now, thinking "meh, I knew that for heaven's sake! ")



This little beaute held everything I could possibly fit in one central compact location. It was easy to find in my bag and kept everything at super easy reach. I even labelled the plastic flappy thingies.



The first label thingy is called 'travel docs' and held everything from our Disney vouchers to reservation confirmations, our resort map, flight confirmation slips and where our car was parked at the airport (we always forget!).

Then the next four label thingies are named after each park and they each are the perfect size to hold park maps (several copies because my kids like to have their own to look at.... at the same time of course ) and the times guide for the week. We also printed off some letter size customized maps for each park and they fit great in there too. I'd gotten some travel advice for two of my early ADR reservations and I printed those off and tucked them in the respective park day, and it held the special tickets for Mickey's Backyard BBQ too.

The last label thingy was called "itinerary" and it held several copies of our picture itinerary for my daughter and was also kind of a misc section too that held any receipts or delivery forms for when we made any purchases and stuff was to be delivered back to our room.

Anyway, that's my favorite organizer. Anyone have anything similar or different? Throw it in here, I'd love to know! I still have 52 sleeps to go buy something new!

Wow, I like thing coupon organizer. I usually just carry a folder with everything and keep a copy of my internary in a plastic bag so it dont get wet, with several spare copies in my folder. I may need to make a trip to the dollar store. Gives me an excuse to use my nifty label maker. I have labeled all my files and have nothing left to use it for.

What a great idea on the organizer!!! I may just have to go out and find one of them for our August trip. On our last two trips, I purchased the Passporter book--mostly because I liked all the pockets in the back of the book to hold everything plus it already has the maps inside. But since I have already used it this year and filled the journal space up, I was trying to think of another idea. Thanks!!!

Yay on 52 sleeps!! only 60 sleeps here.

Ooo - smart. I'm bringing a really tiny bag with me, but I think Lou is bringing (read: I am making him bring) a bigger sling one for him, to carry stuff like ponchos and water. That looks like it might fit in my tiny bag! I need to go check and see if I can get myself one of those at a dollar store.

And it's 62 sleeps for me, I think!!! I may have counted wrong....

I love your organizer! I still haven't found the organization tool that I love for my trips, I might have to give yours a shot.

The Passporter is a WDW travel guide. It's a book that has pockets, journal space and lots of info on the resorts,rides and attractions at the parks--plus reviews of all the restaurants at WDW. Sorry to sound like a commercial!! Anyways, you can usually get them at any book store or online. (That's where I got mine for our trip in April)

Thanks! I think I'll go to Chapters and see what books we can look thru. My DS13 loves all the hidden Mickey's and I know there's books for those too.
