More Shopping

I'm back! Yes, I went shopping again. There will be plenty of shopping updates in this PTR. I only bought a few things for vacation though. Cole and Madison needed a bunch of new clothes, pajamas, etc....but I was able to find a few great things for vacation too.


Found these at Babies R Us for Cole. I couldn't resist (plus I had some coupons)!


Close up of the onesie...so cute! Both the onesie and the one piece are 12 month, so I hope they fit him in September. Fingers crossed!


Found this at Target for Madison. It's cheetah print but with zebra colors. Another great find for AK!

I bought a few things from Old Navy online for myself since they weren't carried in the store. I'll take pics once they arrive at my house.


On another note....about 2 weeks ago, I noticed that our flight prices dropped. I was able to get a $60 credit from Southwest and a $58 credit from JetBlue! Hey, I'll take whatever I can get! No other planning news right now. I'll probably start posting my tentative plans very soon. Madison has spring break next week, so I might be able to get more Dis time!! Have a great weekend!

As always, cute shopping finds. I especially like the zebra/cheetah tank for Madison. I always find such cute things at Target. Actually I just spend a lot of my money there.

Wait - how did you get a credit? Can you just call the airlines if you already have a flight booked and the prices are lower to get an adjustment? I didn't know that?! How did I now know that?

Thanks! Target just eats up my money every time I walk in there. It's like my second home!

I actually was able to get the credit online. I believe I just selected "change flight" and then reselected the flight I was already on. It was super easy! You don't get a refund though. Just a credit for future use. I'm pretty sure it has to be used by a certain time as well.

That would be so much fun! I tend to have "Disney vision" while shopping. If I ever get a chance to go visit my sister in NYC I'd be much closer to you.

Thanks! I guess I have to plan a trip somewhere now.

I love finding cute clothes for Disney. One day down, 7 more to go!

Easter

Hello everyone! Sorry it's been awhile for an update. Madison had a half day last Thursday, no school Friday and she's been on Spring Break this week. We've been busy! I just wanted to share a few pics from Easter with you:


Cole playing around in his little suit!


Maddie and Cole


And this is how most of my pictures turn out...Madison with a goofy pose and Cole not looking.

I have not bought any thing else for our trip, but I've been looking! Every time I shop I have my "Disney radar" on.

I hope to get on either later tonight or tomorrow to start posting our daily plans (which could change). I'll also post "outfit updates" once I have all of our Disney clothes together.

Thanks! We had a wonderful Easter. Went to my sis and BIL's house for dinner and there was so much food! It was like Thanksgiving!

I love that one too! He looks so much older than 10 months all the time. It's going by so fast! Madison is such a little lady. So grown up and mature.

Day 1 Plans

Time to go over our day by day plans. These could definately change, but this is the game plan for now:

Tuesday, Sept 18th

Our plane leaves Buffalo bright and early at 6:10am. We'll probably get to the airport around 4:30am or so. There is NO ONE there that early! We'll most likely grab some breakfast on our way to the airport or once we're there. Never traveled this early in the morning with a little one, so any advice is great!

We are scheduled to land in Orlando at 8:45am which makes me SO happy! Nothing like a full day ahead of you on arrival day. We'll head on down to ME as soon as we land and hopefully be to POFQ by 10 or 10:30am. Once we check in, we'll hand our carry ons over to bell services, pick up our rental stroller and make our way to......Animal Kingdom! I believe AK is open until 5pm that day, so we have plenty of time to do what we want. We'll hit up the safari, EE (for at least me and Tony) and hopefully either FOTLK or Nemo. I know Cole will love the shows and we haven't seen Nemo since Jan 09.

We'll probably grab lunch at AK since I'm sure we'll be starving. I loved Flametree last time, so I'd love to eat there again. We'd also like to see the parade at AK. Never seen it! We always either leave before the parade or on our last trip we arrived right when the parade was starting.

Once we're done at AK, we'll head back to POFQ. Hopefully our luggage will be waiting in our room so we can unpack and freshen up (maybe even nap?). Dinner that night will be at Raglan Road at 6:30pm and I can't wait! Madison and I have watched videos of the dancers and she is so excited to see them. We'll most likely hang out at DTD for awhile that evening, do some shopping, maybe get some Ghiradelli!!!! I am very excited about being able to take the boat to DTD from our resort. I HATE the bus going back to the resort from DTD....too many stops.

I'm sure we'll get to bed early that evening (as early as we can) so we can be well rested for the next day.

I am so glad that I'm not the only one who loves having full days ahead of her when she arrives at WDW :P.

Your plans are so well set out, I'm so excited to hear more about them.

The photos of the outfits are absolutely adorable, and I agree with Disney Mommy 3, the second one of the kids is my favourite.

I will gladly wake up at 3am so I can have a full day of Disney!!

Thank you. I'm a very organized person and I love planning out my Disney days.

Thanks! I can't wait to start getting together all of our outfits. I love shopping for Disney!
