Any last minute planning tips?

Leaving in 16 days! I feel like I'm still missing stuff I can get done before we leave! I already did all the big things (ADR's, FPP), already did most of the tinkerbell gifts for my kids, printed park maps, and have a touring plan. Anything else?

What about Memory Maker? If not, just make sure your cameras are charged, or that you pack an external charger in case you plan on using your phone for most pictures!

Are you having any groceries (or a Kuerig if you're like us) delivered to your room? Now is about the time to order that stuff too!


I feel like I make list after list before we go, but even if I've forgotten something, I've always been able to get it there!

Have fun!

I'm still debating over Memory Maker. I'm hoping instead to borrow my in laws very nice camera, but I haven't gotten a straight answer from them. We are driving there so we will be bringing our own groceries. But maybe I will start a grocery list.

A touring plan is a plan of which park(s) and which attractions/activities you will do, and when.

It can be very general, or very detailed.

Some people have no touring plan at all, and completely "go with the flow". This can be very enjoyable, so there is nothing wrong with it. However, if there are certain attractions that are a priority for your group, you will need at least a basic plan to be sure you are able to do those things.

Most have at least a basic plan of which park they will be in and which attraction to head to first. Also, most plan which attractions to use Fast Pass Plus for. If you have Dining reservations, you will need to plan around them- so that may be a place to start planning.

I see ....I make a spreadsheet with all the park hours for the duration of time that we will be there, then it has our daily ADRs, then our FPs. I guess everyone has named it. I just call it our itinerary.

Thanks!
