I think I'll also look for some big hooks for our water bottles. We'll have the stroller, but our "adult console" only has a spot for one bottle and it's really frustrating to lean over every time you need water.
I'm not expecting it to be as hot next week as it was during July, but you never know.

Those bags are soo cute, and they look as if they're the perfect size to carry essentials, but can't really be overloaded.

I'm so close to being all ready to go. Mine and Gideon's stuff is mostly packed, I'm just waiting until I make my final shopping trip before I get everything completely organized (that packing list my TA sent me sure is coming in handy ) I went with the gallon bag method of packing this time, and it worked better than I thought it would, and it's going to be so easy to move things around to get them packed just right.

Now I'm trying to decide if we really need that third suitcase. We get "free" bags, so I'm tempted to take it, especially since my sister asked me to grab some shorts from her room at our Mom's. Apparently, she doesn't have a huge need for shorts up in Idaho
Granted...I didn't wear shorts hardly at all until I got the job as a parking nazi and spent most days outside rain or shine. That job was so great for keeping in shape for Disney. DH and I keep joking that we're not going to be able to tour hard at all this time, because we've both been so lazy lately. Luckily, we have a 2 year old to blame our slow pace on.
I think I might do the gallon bag method next time...at least for Cole (whenever that trip may come).

I hope you can find the misting fans! We have little battery operated fans from Walmart that I bought in 2010. I might have to check out the misting ones! I did but a large squirt bottle with a fan at Walmart too. Cole loved it on our last trip...he liked spraying himself.

The temperature was already dropping by the time DH got home with the car. I was worried the roads would start getting slick, so I went to Target instead of Walmart, because it's closer. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but they didn't have probably about 5 of the things I "needed" including the mister fans and the rest of the stuff I need to finish Gideon's Peter Pan costume, which was the whole reason I decided that I needed a trip to the store in the first place (most of the other stuff is nice to have but not crucial and I could have picked it up when I take the rental car to the store).
Oddly enough, they didn't even have DH's choice of deodorants....they had the Irish Spring body wash and soap, but not the deodorant???

Soo...I'm going to have to make another trip.

Ugh! I hate when that happens Becca! It's frustrating to not be able to check those things off your list- especially when you're so close to leaving!

Thanks to those who left me kind messages about my interviews! I had one last week and I've got three this weekend. No news here. Actually, that's not true. :D I'm going to Orlando the first week of July. I'm going with family and staying offsite, as a general relax

danceintherain - I hope you find your misters! I hate when that happens, especially when you need something the most and can't find it.

FYI Becca- the misters were not where I thought they would be in my Walmart. I was checking the seasonal/summer section with the pool noodles and bubbles but they had them all the way in the back in the home improvement section??? They were in the aisle with the box fans and air conditioners. Whodathunkit?

That is where I found my little fans a few years ago...the aisle with the box fans!

I sent my Mom to Hobby Lobby yesterday to get the felt and feather for Gideon's Peter Pan hat. I figured going to Walmart will be easy enough, but if I got there and they didn't have the rest of the stuff I needed for his costume, it would be frustrating. It's at her house, but I should have time today after we get there to put the hat together with her sewing machine.

Congrats on the trip! I hope one of your interviews pans out.

K thanks. On the website they were in the Home Improvement section or something, so I was assuming they might be a little harder to find (I didn't check the box fan section at Target though - I think that's the only aisle I didn't go down - so they may have had something similar that I missed).
It won't be the end of the world if I don't get them, but I think they might keep Gideon entertained some and maybe even Logan.

The good news is...since I couldn't find any non-drowsy Dramamine at Target, I bought Logan some SeaBands on a whim. He put them on last night, because we were planning on leaving for my Mom's (then I ran into some hard drive problems so we didn't go) and they really worked! He said it was actually making him uncomfortable that he DIDN'T feel dizzy for the first time in 2 years (I may have mentioned it before, but he was diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) a form of dysautonomia, while we were in Korea - they also call it the Spaceman's disease because sufferers constantly feel unbalanced or motion sick).
I think he'll just be happy to not feel sick at Disney, but he may actually feel up to riding some roller coasters with me!
At the very least, I think he may be able to do the Forbidden Journey at Universal and Rockin Roller Coaster (his favorite).

Can't wait to see his costume Becca- I bet it's going to be adorable!


Quick random question for you gals- Is it possible to stay in a line with your kids until they get on a ride but not actually get on yourself? Last trip both my kids loved Star Tours. I rode it with them once and was ok. Then I rode it a couple days later with them and of course it was a different adventure. This one started out with Darth Vader using the force to take control of the ship and it went back and forth a few times. The backwards motion is what gets me. I was no good and was nauseous for the rest of the day. I actually had to go back to the hotel and lie down. Anyway, I wasn't sure about them being in a long line without one of us (more worried about DD than DS) but I'm certainly not interested in riding Star Tours this trip! DH can't do the motion rides at all. Soarin is all he can handle.

I think that would be fine. They have "chicken" exits at most thrill rides, and I'm sure a CM would escort you to the exit area of their Star Tours vehicle. I will try to find some info for you though.

I kind of thought so. Last trip it wasn't crowded and there was only a 10 minute wait so we were comfortable with them getting in line together without us. I'm just not sure I'll be too comfortable with them waiting alone if it's a longer wait time this trip.

Hey Everyone! I haven't been posting a lot but I do still get the emails from this wonderful group. I saw this conversation and wanted to chime in. Unless Miss E is 7 (sorry Kim, I can't remember if she is 6 or 7) she can not ride unless accompanied by someone 14 or older. See the comment below - thisis from a recent thread that I was following a little while ago. If she is 7 than no problem.

I have a bit of Disney news myself - but y'all are gonna have to wait for it!!! I promise to be back soon!

My kids have been on plenty of rides with out us, long before DS was close to being 14. I'm sure they are enforcing the park entry with kids under 14, but I wonder how much they pay attention to the riding part. We have never even been looked at twice about it.
