We had to buy more printer ink. And of course it was too late to order from the online place I used before for my off label (ha) ink, but we found out that Office Max carries their brand and it's minimally cheaper than the actual HP ink, so off the hubster went.

So I'll be trying that printyprint again!

Have noticed that everything says to NOT use an ironing board, to use a Hard Flat Surface...augh.... I also read that someone took the finish of their coffee table off while doing a transfer; I certainly don't want to destroy the furniture at the Grand! What to do, what to do...could borrow friend's or MIL's iron...but how to explain that? No interest in mentioning yet another disney trip...and they know DARN well that no one here wears clothing that requires ironing unless they are on a job interview. Hmm.

Well, first step is printing the things.

Wow! I've been researching limo rides. They're expensive. This isn't bad! What company is this through?
It is Harold's Limo service. And that quote was for 4 of us. It is more for more people. Still a great rate though. He is a sole proprietor. Super nice gent, clean car. What more do you need??

Molly,
I used my kitchen table. I put an older flat sheet on it to protect the finish (I folded it a couple of times) and actually ironed the sheet to make sure there were no wrinkles and then ironed the t-shirts and then the transfers on the shirts. It really didn't take as long as I thought it would and turned out to be more fun than I thought. I know I put something in between the front and back of the t-shirts, but I can't remember what it was. Parchment paper - that's what it was. Kept any of the colors from the transfers from bleeding through the shirt. The parchment paper stuff that comes with the transfers should work.

Just tell MIL or friend that you are trying some t-shirt transfers to see how they work for E's birthday or New Year's or something. Just don't tell them that you are going to DLR - yet again. Or tell them that E found this really cool picture that he would love to have on a t-shirt and you are figuring out how to do it!

So frustrated. Looks like I lost the opportunity to get the cheapie GAT price on Disneyland Express from the airport. Waited too long! GRR.

So frustrated. Having to change up everything transportation-related, re-hash conversations we've already had... Now suddenly Robert's pro-car rental, instead of just catching the bus without a reservation, b/c he's concerned about it being full. But he's hated the bus idea.

Going crazy.....

And thinking of running to Target for an iron.

Oh! I hate the last minute, pre trip stuff. I never realize how much there is to do, until I have so little time for doing it! I'm sure everything will work out..


P.S. The last time I did an iron on transfer, I put a big peice of cardboard inside the shirt to flatten it out, and ironed it on my kitchen table.

I hope everything works out ok.

I even have a thread on the Transportation forum about one of the car deals we're looking at. That's how nutty I am right now...

Hi! Mine is on Monday. I only get to have the holiday ON my b'day every so many years, and it being the holiday this year, along with the promo, is what pushed me over the edge into this trip.



Just found an iron for under 7 bucks. I'm sure it'll be a quality iron.

Very cool!

When I started college, I bonded with the girl next door b/c of both being the 12th, but she's a year older. We saw Madonna in San Diego last year in honor of her b'day. And what do I do? I go to Disneyland! (actually took a solo trip via Amtrak after the Madonna concert before catching my flight home)

Early Happy Birthday!

It doesn't really need to be a quality iron it just needs to heat up enough to iron on the transfers. Besides if you aren't going to use it very often - it doesn't really matter!

I hate arranging car transportation or any sort of transportation from the airport. I hate the rental car prices and have NEVER been able to figure out how to get a good rate on Super Shuttle. Every time I go to their website and put in my info I always get a $35 charge for the first person and 10 bucks a person after that! Way more than renting a car would be and so not worth it to be stuck at the hotel.

We have a little wanderlust and never JUST stay at DLR. We always branch out a little, if only for food. LOL If we stay long enough we love to hit the beach. DH and I both miss the beach since we both grew up in No. Cal.
