Hello everyone,

18 days for us!

Its so exciting around here reading how everyone is leaving soon. I went and got a new pair of sneakers today for the trip. We also decided we need a bigger suitcase. DD wants to bring all of her princess outfits. Ha Ha! I can't tell her no. She is 8 and she might not be into princesses next time we go.

Hey, to pass the time for those of us who still have a bit to go, how about telling us what your favorite ride is in each park? If you can narrow it down to just one! For me, it's almost impossible to pick just one, but here goes:

MK - Haunted Mansion
Epcot - Soarin
HS - ToT, RnR, and TSM (what can I say, I love them all!)
AK - EE
MK - Haunted Mansion
Epcot - Soarin
HS - Great Movie Ride
Ak - ? Last time we were there we only saw the Lion King show and met characters.

* Teens really alter the commando plans! We didn't make a rope drop at all (came close a few days, but never before 9), took afternoon swim/ogle cute boys breaks every day, and took advantage of hopping to maximize late nights. Had fun, but really needed those FPs- planning which day to visit which park became important, too.

* Teenage girls will stop in EVERY STINKIN' GIFT SHOP IN ALL OF DISNEYWORLD!!! I don't want to shop ever again...

* Weather was gorgeous- highs of around 80 every day, lows of around 60. Sunny and breezy. There was a slight sprinkling of rain yeaterday morning, but otherwise, perfect November weather.

* Enjoyed All Star Music resort. Pool was nice, food court convenient and good food. CMs were all friendly and service was great. Would definitely stay there again. Buses were pretty convenient, although the loooong walk to the far-flung All Stars stops at the end of a long day was a little daunting.

* We didn't get to see the FLE at all, but it didn't ruin the trip for us. We'll just have to plan another one in 2014 so we can experience it when it is all complete.
Welcome Home!

Glad to see your still not at 16 days Ha Ha! I really like that movie.

Time seems to be flying by now. I've got 6 days of work left and the weekend is packed up with stuff so the busier I am the faster time goes by.

Going to be a great time, I just know it.
Single digits!

We will be gone for 2 full weeks so we are planning to do some laundry while there but hopefully not too much as we have our days planned out pretty well and full. According to accuweather, we might not make our water park day- supposed to be only 65 the high boooo!! so we might have an open day there--any suggestions??
I was just reading on the allears sight about the Boardwalk/YC/BC area and all kinds of things to do around and in those resorts and the whole Boardwalk area. Check it out. Also, can't wait to hear how the girls react to the POR Royal room! Getting so close!!

Hey, just saw this on the Jack Sparrow DHS attraction possible soft opening for those of us going late month, there are also so hints that Test Track will have some soft openings while we are there...

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...lywood-studios
I'm counting on soft openings for TT! I will be there on the 6th of December, but would rather avoid the first official day it opens if at all possible.

12 HOURS

That's right HOURS not days left! Woke up this morning with 18 things on my "left to do list". Been running all day. DD had a speech therapy appt this morning then I had a doc appt and a hair cut too. More then half of it done now. Phew!

Now biggest things left to do is get DS to swimming lessons tonight and pack the car up. We leave the house tomorrow at 4 am! Our flight leaves at 7:55am from Buffalo and we have to get there (1 1/2 hour plus boarder crossing time) and get through security in a timely fashion.

This time tomorrow we should be cruising around DTD!

I'll "talk" to you all when we get back.

Not sure if I've asked this before here, to my wife, or just in my mind so I'll ask again here.

Has anyone seen the do it yourself pet ID tag machines at Wal-Mart and such? I had one made a while back to use as a luggage tag since the paper ones they give you at the airport tend to rip after a while.

Since we're going during a busy time the possibility of one of my kids getting away from me and my wife is dramatically increased. We're not helicopter parents by any stretch but we're not also prone to letting them run wild, especially in large crowds. I think a week of hand holding might be a bit much for everyone though.

So you might be able to see what I'm getting at. Would it be wrong to get a tag that the girls can wear as a necklace with their name and our cell phone numbers on them? In the event that we would get separated and hopefully found by a CM they could quickly reunite us.

Is it paranoia? Is it cruel and/or demeaning? Am I completely off my rocker or justified? The girls are 7 and 4 for the record.

I don't think it's a bad idea. My kids are 10 and 12 and I put a tag on their waist packs that has the hotel name, hotel phone number, our name and our cell number. That way if the bag gets lost, hopefully someone takes it to lost and found to return or if my kids need to give our cell to a CM, they have it. I'm sure my 10 yr old son would be beside himself and would not remember our cell numbers.

We did this for DD and her very favorite teddy bear when she was 7. I went to Petsmart and made the red heart shaped tags for them. Put our name, resort, and cell phone # on them. DD wore hers as a pendant, and her bear wore hers on her ankle. Worked great!!

My little ones are 3 and 1, I don't think my daughter would mind wearing one but my son wouldn't. I guess I could always attach to his pants or shoes and he wouldn't notice. My daughter has a "chunky bead" Minnie necklace to wear and I could always put it on there too... I have thought of getting the tattoos with our cell numbers on them too. They are so young and want to stop and look at everything a big fear for me would be for them to see something and head for it and get behind someone and not see them... My daughter is 3 and wearing 18 month clothes for an idea on size. Hopefully they will be content in the stroller so I don't have to worry all day.

Not paranoid... Smart! Here's what we're doing for DD5 and DS3 this trip: DH and I wear lanyards with a plastic card holders to stay organized. Our kids were enamored of them last trip. This trip we got a couple kid-sized lanyards at Party City (only 99 cents each). I'm using the luggage tags from Disney and putting their names, our cell phone, etc. in each, then attaching to the lanyards. The kids will now have their own versions of our lanyards and we'll feel a little more reassured that any separations will be addressed quickly. Wish us luck!
