Hi, thanks for following along! Thanks, I lovvvve my bag too, and I'm super excited about DVC! We actually never did the sales pitch thing at the park, luckily. I'm pretty impulsive so I probably would have ended up just buying it

I'm back - with updates!


I have totally failed this PTR! This summer has been way busier than expected - I've been working overtime at work (which never happens in the summer!), and I took 2 trips up to the Adirondacks (4th of July & then a week at the end of July), and then had a 3 day work trip up in North Jersey.

Whew! I am ready for a vacation

Some updates to our trip before I continue on with my daily (hopefully) updates!

DVC - we finalllly closed on our DVC after 2 very long months and were able to book a room at......AK Lodge! I am soo excited, we have a savannah view studio for Friday & Saturday night. We had to waitlist Friday, but luckily it came through.

ADRs - Since we are going to be at AK Lodge on Friday, I changed my ADR from T-Rex to Sanaa! I was surprised I was able to get a last minute ADR, but I'm excited to try something different. I hope I can find something I like!

Now we're just waiting on our Mickey mail and planning last minute details - can't wait to share them with all of you!

Day 3 Plans


Let's get this PTR moving! Here are our plans for Day 3:

We'll actually get to sleep in a little bit for Day 3 because we'll be heading to Typhoon Lagoon! On day 2, I've changed it to BB because I think it'll be easier to get there from AK.

We'll head to the park around 9:30 for a 10:00 arrival and try to do all the popular slides before hanging out on the beach and wave pool. We'll also get lunch here (anyone have any good lunch suggestions??), and we'll probably stay until around 4.

Then we'll head back to the hotel to shower, etc before heading to DHS around 6 for EMH! We have ADRs at Mama Melrose at 6:55 - can't wait to try it! The penne vodka sounds delicious!

We'll try to stay at EMH until 11...I'd like to do OMD, Mupper Vision, GMR, ToT, RnRc and hopefully jump in line for TSM right before park close - but we'll see how that plan goes!

Any suggestions about TL would be appreciated - we've never been before!

Coming over from my PTR! Your plans look great! I'll have to go back through my plans and compare to yours to see if we overlap at all at the parks. As you know from my PTR, we'll be at POFQ from Sept 18-25th. So excited!

We have Mickey mail!!

On Thursday, these little puppies arrived

**don't scroll down if you're waiting for a luggage-tag surprise!**

















So adorable! We also got our ME tags:

Although I'm not sure why they say "AK"?

And our vouchers for ME and lots of coupons!


Then today we got these, and I was thoroughly confused:


But I realized they were our vouchers for our ME trip home!

Also, last night my sister & I made some super fun crafty stuff - I'll post it later today!

Anywho, we got good news on our DVC contract - we passed ROFR!! I am hoping to have our closing documents within a week or so and I'm hoping I'll be able to book our last 2 days at a DVC resort by the end of the month

Also today, I made some purchases from the Disney website! I get 5% travel rewards when I shop at the online Disney store & I took advantage of some sales and got...




I am SO OBSESSED with this shirt. It's on backorder until July 8th but I have wanted it since I saw the image somewhere (before I knew it was a shirt!). It was on sale - $20 or two shirts for $28 so of course I had to get another one



I looooove v-neck shirts so I'll wear this one in the park!



I'm following along! I love the shirts! So cute and trendy!!! There's just something about being decked out in Disney clothes that makes it so much more fun!

Crafty time

Before I get back to my "daily plans" posts, I wanted to show you all the super-crafy stuff we have been doing for our trips! I will try to give credit where credit is due, but if you see a graphic or something that belongs to someone, let me know!

First up, our AK day shirts:
Mine:


Jess':


We made these by using the iron on paper (we got the kind of dark fabric), and printed the heads from this photobucket. It was super easy and they are adorable! Although yesterday Jess noticed the fabric was lifting (we haven't worn them yet), so she had to superglue it down. Hopefully it stays after we ride Kali! The tanks are from Target, and we got the paper at Joann.

Next up, we have these:


This didn't come out as good as I had hoped - I think we should have done a red block with white writing on it, but oh well. There's nothing on the front of these...they're v-necks with a little pocket. I can't find the link where we found the Mickey ears! The writing we just did in word and printed it out on the iron on paper (again, we used the kind for dark shirts). We also printed the Mickey ears on iron-on and cut around them. I think these will be either for DHS or Epcot - don't want to get wet while we're wearing these . The v-neck was also from Target I believe.

Last up, my favorites- tie dye Mickey shirts. I am SO THRILLED with the way these came out and I'm so excited to wear them!!!

Mine:


Jess':


The shirts are v-necks from Walmart (I think they were $3!). We made sure to get 100% cotton. We also got a tie dye kit from Walmart and a separate package of black dye. It was messy but worth it! The link to the tutorial we used can be found here. The dye we got was good because we didn't have to use soda ash....we dyed the "head" black, then wrapped it in saran wrap and did the rest with the other colors. The only mistake made was that Jess pulled the front AND back of t-shirt fabric through the head, so she has a partial Mickey head on the back. She has long hair so it won't be an issue. These will probably also be a day where we don't get wet - the 2nd DHS day or an Epcot night. I would be afraid the extra dye would run onto my Dooney :scared1

We are thinking of adding rhinestones around the edge of the Mickey head to make it more defined - thoughts??

These are so cute!!! And how fun to make your own! For the first one, did you buy the image from the person? Or is it available just to download for free?
