My to do list.

I still have 1-2 outfits per girl to make and several t-shirts to make. I also want to make 2 little skirts for my neice.

The biggest thing is I need to make my daily park plans (Priorties, best times list etc) for each day. I'm having a hard time starting on that.

I've lost a lot of weight this year, so I need to go shopping for clothes to wear at WDW. I have one pair of jeans that physcially don't fall off me, but they are still too big. I want to lose 10 more pounds so I'm holding off on shopping until the last possible minute.

Is anyone planning on swimming? With the average high being 78 I'm concerned it might be a little chilly. My blood has thinned living in Texas for sure.

There is no way I would swim outside (I don't care if the water is heated) in Nov in FL. 78 (especially if that is the high temp - that means colder during the day) is not warm enough for me to get in the water.

I'm a southern girl. I was cold in an indoor waterpark this weekend that was supposedly heated to the mid 80's.

I will be hard pressed to keep my big girls out of the pool! They are used to swimming in a heated outdoor pool (my parents inground pool is still open and it's nowhere near warm in NJ!).

I doubt I will get in, but my husband probably will.

MY DD and her friend will most likely swim but I won't. Unless it is uncommonly warm, even heated pools are too cool for me in November.

We're in PA and my kids will swim in my sister's pool when the water temp is close to 70 degrees My son will come out with blue lips, but you can't keep him out I'm sure that both of the kids will be swimming every day.

We have gone the week after Thanksgiving since '04. We usually plan the parks around the hottest days so those can be utilized for swimming. The past couple years we only got one swim day out of those days. Lets hope for great weather!!!

I will be honest, I DO NOT SWIM WHEN I'M AT DISNEY WORLD, unless I'm staying at the Beach Club and then I'll go to Stormalong Bay. I think it is pointless because there is SO much other stuff to do when you could just go swimming at a local pool or something at home. Maybe that's just me and my opinion.

Unless it is unseasonably cooler, we will be swimming! It's not so much the water temperature - it's that chill in the air when you get out! Our kids will swim no matter what. A couple of years back, spending NYE @ HHI, they were in the pool with air temps around 50!

30 days to go and still no Mickey Mail. Got our ME tags for both resorts though.

DS turned 7 today. Made it through the party alive barely. Never again will I let him invite 7 boys to the house again.

You are brave- that many little boys in one place is wild!! Happy birthday to your DS- 7 is a fun age.
