Love the touring card, I do need to get my head around the kiosks and what I want to do.
We'll see how late we make it at MK but I suspect we'll be running on Disney adrenalin! We aren't planning to stay out too late that first night though.

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!


Kathy
I've had good luck checking in early too! But we'll see...

I really LOVE BWV, especially during F&W!

I use them for all of my trips now that Heidi has introduced me to her wonderful creations!

I use them to write all of my TR notes. I'll note the time next to certain attractions, mark down any funny stories, etc. They are very handy! Then I clip all of my receipts for the day right to them.

Totally understandable Kathy! We'll be here when you have time to stop in & say hello!

I'd be lost without Heidi's cards!

It's a rainy day here today so I'm glad I got all the errands done yesterday! Should be a great day to get caught up on the DIS. I'll be back later to post our Day 2 plans!

Cheers to Day 2

Our plans for Day 2 have us at Animal Kingdom in the morning.


Then we'll take some time to relax at the Boardwalk & get ready for our night at MNSSHP!!



I think we are all really excited for the Halloween Party. We may tweek our plans once the party map is released & we get a better idea of what to expect this year.

Up next: Day 3 plans

Hi all, Julie here

I agree w/ Amy in LOVE w/ Heidi's tour cards, they are great for jotting notes and others you need to remember or for TR writing. Yes we are super organized, would you expect anything less from us? LoL

We do have some full plans for several days but we won't be touring like robots these plans just give us direction and help us know what we had talked about doing months previous!

I of course will have a tad more sleep than H and A but I'm sure I will be up super early w/ Disney excitement and to see my girls! I for one hope to stay for Wishes on night one...

Can't wait for MNSSHP as well and some relaxing time at AK on day two since my family skipped this park in Jan.

F&W yummmmm

I seriously do need to button down and get my thoughts for what we want to do down. Otherwise it will be like the last trip where we missed EE and Illuminations and I've regretted it!

Plans look great as usual! Long day though; I'm worried that you're going to be really tired by the end of the MNSSHP -- promise me you'll all take a good rest and put your feet up that afternoon!

Hey Happy belated birthday Julie... .... hope it was awesome...

Love, love, your costumes....

(Am very happy that you are going to the Halloween Party...that's one thing on my Disney bucket list that I have to do...)

Also love the Disney math...(do you think they should have a class that teaches that... I am a big big fan of Disney math...

Those plan cards are really impressive....

more please...

Planning for MNSSHP is tricky... there's so much to try to squeeze into a few hours! PP pictures before the make up gets all messy is the way to go!

Oh no! No EE or Illuminations! It's definitely good to at least have some loose plans. We didn't want every minute scheduled but having some goals & important times noted is helpful.

Hi Patricia!! I'm very excited for MNSSHP! I've been once before but the kids were pretty small so we didn't get to stay very late. We saw the parade & did some trick-or-treating but that's about all!

Cheers to sleeping late!

After a late night at MNSSHP, we're planning on a pretty laid back day today.

We'll sleep in this morning & wander over to the YC for breakfast at Captain's Grille. The only other specific plans we have for today are the 3D Dessert Party & Illuminations.

Heidi put together this touring plan card for some time at Epcot but we're are really going to wing it today. We may head to Epcot for a while after breakfast, then take a break at the pool. Or we may just chill at the resort & head to Epcot later.



The great part of this plan is that after Illuminations, we can just walk out the IG & be back in our room in a matter of minutes!

I'm really looking forward to the 3D Dessert Party because it's definitely something none of us would be able to do with our families! It will be a fun night & a unique way to watch Illuminations.

Up next: Day 4 Plans

No. Disney hasn't called me. I knew when I ordered the tickets that they had messed up the timing of the party with Illuminations. I've been expecting a correction.

They called me on Wednesday. I guess it will take them some time to get through to everyone! I had a voicemail and when I tried to call them back it went to voicemail. I hope they got my message that the new time works for me!

Your plans sound so fun and I am super jealous of your touring plan cards! There is so much that I intend to do but wind up forgetting about. You gals are inspiring me to get organized!
