We are in the same boat! My kids know nothing about this trip!! A tree to decorate (even though it will just be the weekend) will too off our magical Christmas visit!

Final list up

OK, I've updated the list. Please take a look and email or PM me if you are having trouble checking. Right now, here are the donors:

AKJ1 mrshiny
AKK1 calypso726
AKK2 Harlemgirl720
BCV1 dvcterry
BCV2 Pirate Granny
BLT1 Harlemgirl720
BLT2 ndpeirce
BWV1 bobbiwoz
OKW1 sarahk0204
SSR1 NHBaerz
SSR2 dayfritch
VWL1 nursegirl

If any of you can no longer donate, let me know asap! The first trees (BCV1 and VWL) are do to arrive in just over 2 weeks.

If anyone has major issues with the schedule, let me know and we can work it out. I did the best I could when stays overlapped.

I'll be sending out instructions to the donors tonight, so watch your email and your PM.

Thanks all and let's make this a great holiday season for all! Merry Christmas!

Hints for tree families:

1) There should be an envelope for donations in the box. These donations are both for the return shipper to ship the tree back to the donor and for the donor to help defray costs. Please give what you can. If you are the last family, leave whatever is more than the shipping cost in the envelope for the donor.

2) Please let me know who you give the tree to when you hand it off, and whether they work for Front Desk or Bell Services. If you can snap a photo of them, that's great too (Disney CM's are always willing to pose for a picture!). This can really help if trees are mislaid.

3) On your Drop off day, drop the tree off before 11AM. On your pick up day, pick up the tree after noon.

4) Don't try to run down missing trees yourself. Let me do that for you. Sometimes a tree or two will get lost. Often they are located later. Don't spend vacation time tracing down trees!

5) (Optional) Add an ornament to the tree from your family. This could be something from home or something from WDW. Completely optional!

6) While it might seem easer to arrange direct handoffs with the previous family if your stays overlap, better to let the resort handle this. Familes might be on tight schedules, so arranging a meet up time might take away valuable vacation time.

7) Have a Merry Christmas!

Also - any tree families out there on the east coast - take care! I certainly understand if you can't get back to me until things are back to normal!

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Wow - almost 4 months since this year's thread started! Happy Halloween, all. I updated the list above, and of course on the Google Drive. Note we have lost a few folks here are there as plans are finalized.

Thanks the vast majority for responding so quickly! Of course I am sure the weather has altered many people's lives lately, so if you did not have a chance to respond to my email, don't worry! I'll cycle back thriough and remind people next week.
