LOL Not really. We've already left home and are at our first hotel stop. Our flight leaves in 8 hours. I sewed my FE this morning. LOL

I finally completed all of the A.C.Es yesterday. I will start packing tonight. We've got 3 more sleeps until we head out to WDW

Ebags definitely has the best price I have found.

I will be using packing cubes for the first time this trip. I got ours from Ebags too. I kept hearing such good things about them and when I saw that they were giving 15 airline miles per dollar with one of my Chase cards I jumped on it

What is an "A.C.E."?

I will be using packing cubes for the first time this trip. I got ours from Ebags too. I kept hearing such good things about them and when I saw that they were giving 15 airline miles per dollar with one of my Chase cards I jumped on it
OK, I've GOT to check these out now. 3 glowing reports for packing cubes from ebags. Egad!

Ooooh, I found a COOL thing yestrday at Target. It s a "pop up recycle container". They come 3 in a pack for <$6. I figure it will work great as a pop up hamper that I can throw away for the trip home! OK, I was pretty pleased with my purchase--although I am sure I will get the eye roll from DH. he is so frugal. I can hear it now, "Why pay $2 for that when we could just use a garbage bag?"

ok, they are preliminarily forecasting another nameable winter storm for my area on Thursday! Too close for comfort for me. We will have to watch this one carefully. After this I think I am going back to April vacation for trips this is too much stress!

PINK CHAMPAGNE GIRLS group photo update

CALLING ALL PINK CHAMPAGNE GIRLS
(and guys)!!!!


We have a confirmed group photo reservation in the atrium right after our event which ends at 12:15. The princesses are scheduled to be holding a meet and greet that should be finishing up about the time we arrive. If the timing works out well we may be able to have one of the princesses join our group photo. The sitting fee is being charged to my room. To be a part of the group photo you will only need to bring your biggest smile and say, "Mickey!"

If you sign up for their emails you'll get lots of discount offers over the course of the year. 30% off and free shipping sometimes, so it pays to wait for them.

Great minds! My youngest son and I were at Party City over the weekend getting pirate supplies and he spied those. We thought the same thing!

Wondering when everyone is arriving at port. I ask this because I am seeing different threads with different answers about when you can arrive at port. Our plan was to leave WDW about 9:00 am drop off my wife at port with luggage at about 10:15 then take car to Budget then take shuttle back to port. Even though our PAT isn't till 11:30 I don't like to be late or rushed so if their are no delays such as traffic or issues at Budget I don't mind waiting at port for gates to terminal to open. I am reading some threads that if you get to port before 11 they will tell you to come back at 11. They won't even let me drop off the wife and luggage. I'm not complaining I just don't want to leave WDW too early and drive in circles around PC till 11.

We are using DCL Transportation with a PAT of 11-1130. The bus will probably arrive 1045 ish. Luckily they let you in with their transportation.

We originally were going to do this but We were told pick up at SSR was between 11 and 1. With closer to 1 being the time. It would get us to PC a lot later then we wanted. Next time we stay at Hyatt at MCO and take DCL which gets u there earlier. Oh well first time is a learning experience.

Thank you - I can't wait to try it (I must have missed the links about FB, so I am not in that group)

Thanks again!

As others have said, when you check in, ask them where you need to go to try to change your dining time. Go there first and get in line. They may be able to accommodate your request. I hope they can change it for you. (There's some pixie dust to try to help)

I hope your summer clothes fit!!!! I would think it would be kind of hard to find summer clothes this time of year in Wisconsin!!! If not....there's always Safety pins. (assuming you're worried they'll be too big...not too small)

You'll have to show these packing cubes....I'm curious....especially after everyone's high reviews on them!.

We have 3 more sleeps before we leave, too! Except...we have much farther to drive, so we won't get there until 4 more sleeps.

I sure hope the new forecast changes...and doesn't affect your travel plans!

About 10 years ago, we went on a cruise with some friends. We went to WDW prior to the cruise and our friends flew in the morning of the cruise. They flew out of Chicago and a big winter storm hit Chicago overnight. They were the last flight out before all flights got cancelled. That could have turned very ugly very fast....it was a 7 night cruise and they didn't have trip insurance. That's why we NEVER wait till the day of the cruise to arrive at the port.....especially when cruising in the winter months.

I believe the earliest you can arrive at the port is 11:00 am. If you get there earlier, they may make you park in a reserve lot until 11:00. At 11:00, you can enter the terminal....even though you have a an 11:30 PAT...you just may not get a boarding pass #2.

If you get to the port too early, you could always go check out the DIS welcome center. That's what we plan on doing.
