Cheers to MNSSHP!

You all know we are planning to attend MNSSHP on Thursday, 10/11/12 (fun date, right?).



We bought our tickets this week and our costumes will be….




Cruella de Vil & two Dalmatian puppies!

Julie will be Cruella and Heidi & I are the pups.
Heidi has chosen to be Rolly:


And I have chosen Penny:


Julie has several versions of Cruella to choose from.
The movie version:


The Disney park character version:


Or the animated version:


Here’s a sneak peek at Julie’s costume:


For shoes, she'll wear either these:


Or these:


Some makeup testing… testing two different versions at the same time!


With t-shirts on her head for effect:


She’s going to look great!!

Heidi and I will be wearing black shorts and white t-shirts, which we’ll be painting with black spots. (We hope to get together in September to paint the shirts at the same time.)
We have Dalmatian ears & tails, modeled here by Danica:


Here is the shirt paint & some ribbons that we’ll use for collars:


And finally, Heidi’s makeup test!






It's going to be so much fun!!

With only...


52 days to go, we are working on a fun way to countdown the last 30 days. We'll take turns posting a short update every day sharing parts of our day to day Disney lives. We also hope to get our park touring plans posted between now & then... So stay tuned for frequent updates!!

I'm getting really excited for the party!

This weekend I ordered more professional make-up for the puppies and colored hair spray for Cruella.

And seeing the picture of the ribbon reminds me that I got the collar color (blue) for Penny but not Rolly. Should we have matching collars or should I get the red ribbon too?

Ha! I cannot wait to see you all together with your finished costumes, everything looks great! I like the spotted shoes better too, those red ones look like fun but the green trim will be much more complimentary to green eye shadow.

The Dalmation ears are a riot. Kudos to you all for wearing the makeup... I'd likely have it streaky and half gone in no time.

Totally up to you Heidi! Thanks for getting all of the supplies!

Not sure which shoes Julie ended up with... but I think it's the crocs. I believe she had them before she even saw the other ones.

You should definitely dress up... at least a little bit!

Cheers to Arrival Day (Day 1)!



We're down to 45 days to go!!!

As promised, I want to share more details about our plans.

On day one (Wed 10/10), Heidi & I will arrive at MCO around 10am where Julie will be waiting for us. (She changed her flight to arrive the night before & will stay at a hotel near the airport.) We'll all catch our ME bus together & before long we'll be checking in at BWV! Hopefully our room will be ready, but if not, we'll head right out to Epcot via the International Gateway... which is my favorite part of staying at the Boardwalk!

Here is the touring card Heidi put together for our time at Epcot.


After a few hours exploring the Epcot F&W booths for lunch, we'll head over to MK.


I'm sure we'll be pooped so we'll be anxious to get back to our villa at a reasonable time.

Up later this week... Our Day 2 plans!

Busy, full, fun and organized first day!!!!!!!!!

I think mine looks something like, DME to resort, go to dinner. If I am really lucky with DME I might get a little bit of park time before dinner. I really hope so but at best it's probably 30-60 minutes. Everything will be closed by the time we are done with dinner. A little bummed about how early the parks are closing during my dates.

Love the touring card, I do need to get my head around the kiosks and what I want to do.

Great touring cards!

I've usually had good luck with early check-ins at the DVC resorts; hopefully your villa will be ready when you arrive!

Still hoping to stay at BWV someday... will have to do it vicariously for now!

Thanks. They are a half sheet and I print them on heavy paper. The backs make a good spot for note taking or attaching a map or anything else you need.

I am so hopelessly behind on this PTR and I apologize (too much personal drama and the kids moving up the wedding and our own trip coming up). The plans sound great, and I'll try to stay on top of things now.

They really do look wonderful! Far more organized then I will ever be!! I will probably have to consult my own PTR to remember what it is I wanted to do on a certain day lol!
