Just popping on here to shout 42 MORE DAYS!! Whoo Hooo! I'm so excited. I've been shopping up a storm (poor DH) stocking up on sunscreen, new t-shirts, fabric to make dresses for the girls, new bathing suits and of course the all important new tiaras for the girls of the family to wear to MK. I did this for my girls last year, let them wear tiaras from my DS's wedding (That have now broke). They LOVED it and begged me to get new ones and wear one too...so after some puppy dog eyes, and much pleading.... Mommy agreed to do it for our first MK day and I talked DSIL to join us so I wasn't alone. Don't get me wrong, I'm a GIRLY girl... like, wear jewelry in the parks with sundresses and epicly large floppy sun hats type of girly. However, crystal tiara, even a smallish one, is a bit much, even for me. So if you see 4 blinged out "princesses" in MK on April 20 just know it's because I really do love my DD's that much and am really good at cohersing someone who's ticket I am paying for into enthusiasticaly playing along

This wait is killing mew.......
Going to the gym again this morning for the 11th morning in a row hoping to drop a few pounds before our trip, but as hard as I work out, I can't seem to lose even a pound. At least the gym has free tanning so I am getting nice and browned up, and we all know everything looks better with a tan.

We live on a lake where all of the houses used to be summer homes including ours and probably about half of them still are. All the rest are summer rentals still and can you guess who rents them all ( and I mean every last one of them)? People from Mass You girls were earlier talking about a Mass exodus and I was cracking up because literally a few weeks a year and then again at the start of summer a parade of cars comes rolling through and it never fails, every time I say to my husband "What is going on?????"......"Oh yes.......Mass vacation"


I will also point out that when they all roll in for the summer, thats when the fun starts around here.

We are going April 20-27th for my sons Make a Wish trip!! We are not sure where we are staying yet. I know we are staying on Disneys property somewhere because GKTW is full. But we are extending our trip one day and staying at POFQ for the 27th.

35 days to go!

I have a quick question! I got my Magical Express vouchers and tag this morning. I made the reservation by internet (not by phone), and gave all my flights info and all.

Now, in the book, on flight arrival and departure info, it says "No flight information provided" ... says I have to call Disney Magical Express. Can I skip the call?? I mean I have better thing to do with my money than paying 10$ of long distance call!!

LOL!! My parents who live in VT have a summer house in NH, and it seems like most of the people there in the summer have a Boston accent. Too funny.

I got an envelope today and got all excited thinking it was my Mickey Mail, or at least my photopass CD, but it was the customized maps I ordered from the website. They are cute. I figured I would let Disney use the printer ink instead of me FYI though, they print them 2 sided. I was thinking we might use them as a framed souvenir, but would have to pick two parks. MK and Epcot are back to back, and HS and AK are back to back. They also included a full park map with the resorts on another page, and a small page of stickers to mark places you might have forgotten to choose, and a special "my resort" sticker. Another neat thing is it marked where all the character meetings are in each park, and also kid friendly activities in each park (Sorcerers in MK, kidcot and phineas & ferb in EP, discovery clubs in AK)
Well worth the time it took to plug in the choices and order!

How wonderful! Do you follow any of the other MAW trips posted here on the DIS or the info about GKTW? There's quite a few to take a look at. I hope you have a simply wonderful trip.

So I got my PP+ in the mail today, as well as my Magical Express tags. Two questions....first, they sent only 4 luggage tags for 4 people. Is this the new normal? I thought they used to send 2 pp?? I'll just call the 800 number and request more I guess. Secondly, my return flight info isn't in there, although I know I gave it when I called. Do they usually just leave it out, or should I call and make sure they have it? Thanks!

I'm not entirely sure since mine hasn't come yet, but I know it is some mail from Disney about your trip and has luggage tags if you are using ME to get from the airport to the resort.

I think they changed it to only include one luggage tag per person. It's probably a side effect of the fact that domestic flights don't tend to include checked bags anymore, so people are taking advantage of the luggage service along with ME less often.

I would probably double check to make sure that they had the return flight info.

Any mail related to a Disney trip. Package guests get a whole packet with their applicable vouchers etc. If you plan on Magical Express, you'll get luggage tags for them to recognize your luggage and a voucher for that. On a trip a few years ago, I got something in the mail that simply said "We can't wait to see you" or something to that effect with some information about our resort.

Maps and vacation planning DVDs can also be considered Mickey Mail.
