As for your new plans.....we're going to overlap!!! We'll be at Epcot on the 20th in the evening and we'll be at MK on the 22nd in the evening. We also want to see MSEP and Wishes that night.
Weird that you didn't get picked if you check in on the 18th!! You should ask the people at the ME desk when you arrive to check your reservation....it was my understanding that everyone checking in from the 18th to the 25th and using ME was chosen. But I could be wrong!!

It's not for everyone. It's a random selection.

Loving your PTR!! Your plans sound great and can't wait to hear how your trip goes!! I enjoyed reading about your "for-Disney" purchases and homemade goodies as well!! The binder you have is very much something I also do before each trip!! Though it's not as pretty looking...nor probably as organized as your's! Haha! The next one will be though, now that we will have our little one in tow for her first trip (she will be 15 mos)! Looking forward to reading more!

Thank you for following - and welcome to the DIS!

I am already looking forward to the day when I can bring my first child to Disney!

5 days!!

Only FIVE days to go until we get to WDW! ! I am sooo excited, although I know this is going to be the longest 5 days ever! I am done planning outfits...PJs and bathing suits are packed...just need to do laundry tomorrow and pack the remainder of my clothes.

We bought tickets for Finding Nemo in 3D for Friday night!! It will be an exciting way to get ready for vacation the next day, and we're dragging DH and my sister's DBF along for the ride

We've made a few small plan changes - we got a 5:00pm ADR for Les Chefs, so we SHOULD see Remy if he comes out at 5:20, like I've read. Jess is particularly excited about this Also, we're now planning on seeing Wishes on Sunday night in the park (rather than at ToTW Lounge), Fantasmic on Monday night during DHS EMH (they added a showing at 9:30 - probably will be much less crowded!). On Wednesday we'll head to ToTW Lounge after grabbing at CS at DHS...that way we'll get to start & finish our trip with Wishes, then of course we'll see Wishes again with our Fastpass+! Can you tell we love Wishes??

The main point of this post - snacks! I am an avid snacker, and I'm proud to say I have a "must eat" food/snack list for each park.

Here are the snacks I want to try in each park...obviously I won't fit all these in but I can try

MK - Dole Whip (never had one!), Sweet Cream Cheese pretzel, homemade ice cream sandwiches, cinnamon roll from MS Bakery, waffle sandwiches w/fruit & nutella. I would also like to try the corn dog nuggets from Casey's and the shrimp basket from CHH

DHS - Any cupcake from Starring Rolls, Carrot Cake Cookie, Mac & Cheese hotdog (this sounds fantastic!), hot dog w/pretzel roll (Min & Bills)

AK - Cupcake from Kusafari, jalepeno pretzel, Flame Tree

Epcot - Salted caramel square & caramel popcorn from Karamel Kuche,; S'mores Brownie from Sunshine Season; croissant, eclair, chocolate mosse from the Boulangerie; Cinnamon sugar pretzel from Promenade refreshments, GG or Grand Marnier slush, Margarita flight from La Cava

TL/BB - Mini donuts!!

Downtown Disney - Mickey rice krispie treat from Goofy's, frosting and brownie sandwich from EoS

I've been thinking of these snacks for a while now Looks like I have a lot of eating to do!!

Tomorrow is online check in for AKL - I'll let you all know how it goes!

I love Disney snacks!! Dole whips are a must and I try to eat as many as I can! I totally forgot about the waffle sandwiches...need one of those!!! They were working on the caramel shop in Germany on our last trip and I can't wait to check it out. Yum!

Last PTR post!

Well my loyal readers, it is time for this lovely PTR to come to an end. In just 60 short hours (who's counting??), I will be taking off for WDW!! Bags are packed except for a few last minute toiletry items...just have to make a trip to the salon for a mani/pedi/wax & get some cash. Here's to hoping these last two days of work pass quickly!! Friday night we are seeing Finding Nemo in 3D as a way to kick off of trip.

Thank you to all of those who read and to anyone who's leaving at the same time or during my trip - HAVE FUN!! I've really enjoyed talking to all of you and I hope you'll follow me onto my TR when I return - I'll post the link here.

Goodbye for now!

Hello everyone! We are unfortunately back from a very magical trip - We've been back since Sunday and trying unsuccessfully to adjust to the real world. I'm hoping to start my TR either tonight or tomorrow night - I took over 700 pictures plus more than 250 on PP (with edits) so its going to take me a while to sort through everything. This was my favorite trip yet and it was so fantastic, I can't wait to share it with all of you! I'll post a link here as soon as I start.
