I would go with the easiest, even if it might not be the cheapest. You don't want to transfer or take public transportation if you've never been to NYC - it can be confusing, especially right around the Port Authority.
Thanks for the great link! I'm considering one of the express services for $15 each....but still need to read up on that a little more.

Anywho! Next time we fly to MCO, we'll be taking Southwest...no baggage fees at all!
I don't ever remember having to pay baggage fees. But then, I've only ever flown WestJet, Air Canada, and Cathay Pacific. I'm considering either JetBlue or SouthWest for my next trip.

I saw the AirTrain option. It's $5. But I need to know more about it before I take it. I might end up going with the $15 express because there's less guesswork?

World Wish Day

I was at my nearest Disney Store today and picked up a few t-shirts for my trip (a red Minnie one and a grey Tink one).

When I was checking out, I saw that Disney was selling these really nice looking canvas bags.

Front:


Back:


In Canada, they're selling for $9.50 and for every bag sold, Disney will donate $3 of it to the Make a Wish Foundation.

This is going on until May.2 I believe. It's a really well made bag with a blue lining inside and a zipped pocket on one side.

World Wish Day is April.29. I think everybody should go out and support this very worthy cause

Between those and the Pook-A-Looz notebooks, I think I have to go to a Disney store sometime soon!

Yes, Danica, you really do.

I saw two pook a looz notebooks at the store. They were very thick! One was a Minnie and Mickey one and I can't remember the other one...Neither was the one Seanaci got though.

Their summerware is also out for sale again. I love those! 3 items for $12! Well, in Canada, so it's probably cheaper in Boston. There are bowls and plates and cups, it's awesome

I was SOO tempted to buy a mug or two when I was at the store. But since I don't really NEED one right now....I figured I'd just save my money for WDW

I saw the large ones that you would pack for a picnic being sold last summer. I hope they bring them back because I am SOO getting them. I love packing for picnics and don't have anything big enough to put food in. I end up carrying 3-4 oddly shaped boxes.

I have seen those small rectangular food boxes for children. I really want some! But I already have my own small bentos so.....don't really need anymore... Or...DO I????

You do! You need more you can't even have enough bento boxes! Haha! I'm moving up to stainless steel ones now. :P I want to be eco friendly and not still worry about the plastic leaching into my meals.

I bought that same Wish Day bag earlier this month. My son was carrying it around tonight, lol.

Anywho. If you'd like a pook a looz notebook like mine I can get one and mail it to you. Let me know. I have to go out to the mall this weekend for Pez candy for Keegan anyway.

Chapter 11. I has tickets!!!

My tickets from Undercover Tourist have arrived!!!

More than 3 months before my trip is too early you say???

Nay!

The Canadian dollar is doing well, so it's the perfect time to buy them!

Wow, they sure got here real fast. I love the no delivery fee.

Here it is, in its package. The back:


And here are the fronts, photos shot through the paper it's stuck to:




I don't plan to take them out till I get there. So I'll be bringing it along, with plastic wrap and all, just to protect it till my trip.

OH MY GOSH, I was so excited to see it in the mail! I pretty much did this , minus the banana-suit. And a bit of this too minus the pom poms.

It's a really nice bag! I've been looking for something like that for a while.

How much does the notebook cost? That would be really wonderful of you!

Speaking of Pez....I bought this the other day.


I love Tink the most. Of the new Disney fairies, Faye's my favourite, but I love Iridessa. Rosetta's southern belle accent just charms me.

So why Silvermist? For the simple reason that her pez figure looked better than the other ones at Block Buster. I'm hoping to collect all 5.

Cherry's my favourite flavour.

I ordered from them for our last trip too, and it was WONDERFUL having them arrive in the mail!! Super fun to tear open the envelope and see what we got. If I recall correctly, it was mostly Tinks with a few Mickeys thrown in.
