I just went back and edited my itinerary in this post, since there are a few tweaks and I didn't want to repost the whole thing Changes look like this

And since other people are posting their countdown calendars, this is mine It's just a dry erase board, but it works for me, since I'm a solo traveler. I have a countdown on my iPod, too.

Hey, you'll be there for Christmas, so I'm jealous of you!

It was so funny, because when I called to add the day, the lady was like "You're arriving on the 23rd, but it says here that you were arriving on the 24th, is that right?" I'm all "Yeah, I've changed my itinerary already... " I've gotten some very perky people on the phone

LOL I like your countdown calendar! I'm thinking about doing a chain, but I feel like I'll just be annoyed by it a little so I might try something a little more simple than that...not sure yet, but I have to do something! 89 days left for me!

Love the new ticker, btw!

That's why I like my white board The only problem is that the ink in the marker doesn't come off cleanly right away, so if I have to take off something that's been on there a while, I have to wipe it off with the isopropyl alcohol I use to clean my laptop screen! I think it's the brand of markers, since I've had that problem before.

Yay for 89 days left!

I like my new ticker, too It looks the same except for the count.

I got to talking about Disney snacks with a friend of mine today. So... These are some of the snacks I'm planning on getting on my trip The images are snagged from the Dis and Google, so a couple of them may look familiar Hope no one minds


WDW popcorn! I love popcorn, but there's something so nice about cart popcorn. I can't explain it, even though I have a hot air popper at home.


Gingerbread Mickey from Germany in Epcot! I saw this on a TR I'm reading (I'm not sure if she's reading me or not), and I just thought he was so adorable. I'm usually not a fan of gingerbread, but I think this would be good


Raspberry lemonade slushy from Enchanted Grove at MK! I love raspberries, lemonade, and slushies. So... Yeah.


Caramel sundae from Ghirardelli Enough said


Can't go wrong with a Mickey bar


The little cake, not the big one. This is dependent on me getting over to the Boardwalk, but I want one!


And just about anything from the fudge case at the Confectionery. I make fudge at home, so I like trying other kinds to get ideas of flavors to make.

There are other snacks, but these were the ones I could find quickly.

Ok Just read your new itinerary GOOD 4 U ! don't worry about 4 pm entry for MK for MNSSHP....it's a rumor every year (forever) that they will change it & they never do..they would have a logistic nightmare & a mutiny on their hands......no worries

I know! I don't know what it is about it... Maybe it's the pixie dust

They're at the shop in Germany that sells the gummy stuff, apparently. I can't wait to try one

Oh, I know. I don't see why they would change it, to be honest. It's just irritating because so many non-Disney outlets are putting out information on it and so many Disers are taking it as gospel truth and I'm sitting here thinking, "That person/panel/newsletter is NOT Disney and doesn't really know for sure, just wait until the first party and find out then." But no one listens to me

I know they have Halloween themed candy apples, but I'm not sure about anything else. We'll see when we get there, right?

It makes me laugh, because I'm like "Dude, it's a rumor, I don't care who's giving the information. Unless it's straight from a Disney Company announcement or guest experience this year, it's a rumor." I can't wait to go, though.

So I'm feeling a little silly right now and more than a little happy that my trip is over half paid for, so here's a couple other random pictures


This is Samson, the facility dog at my work.


This is Friday's strip for one of my favorite webcomics, XKCD. This would crack me up if I ever saw this at an airport


And this is my other countdown, which is on my iPod. It's an app called Big Day Lite or something like that.

How do you like the lap top bag? Have you tried it out yet? Do you think it's durable? I want to put a cute, new one on my Christmas list!! If you like it, would you PM me the site where you got it so I can save it??

The extra night looks great! We ended up staying through Friday night when we were originally going to come home on Friday! I didn't like the way the flights worked for Friday, so we said what the heck and just added that night on to our reservation instead!

Mmmm...snacks..mmm....!! There is just something about WDW popcorn!! I use the buckets as a change jar for our next trips!
