So after all that......you're telling me you are waiting?

Speaking of packing, do any of you use Groupon/LivingSocial/Tippr to hunt for deals on things that you can bring on the trip? We picked up a pack of the roll-up/collapsible water bottles from Groupon.

We're also going to hit the dollar store up for some glow bracelets, necklaces and other various little cheap trinkets. Then we can give them to them randomly throughout the trip to keep them entertained and hopefully prevent them from begging for all of the junk around the parks.

We're also hoping to hit up the pressed coin machines too. Anyone have tips for a cheaper alternative to the coin books for keeping them?

I'm wanting to pack, I just feel like it's crazy to pack right now. Of course, I am crazy when it comes to Disney.

I plan on getting my water from the vendors in the parks. But I did buy glow bracelets. We have a tradition of giving dd7 a wrapped toy each morning before we get to the park. Usually dollar tree or clearance items. I did get a few things when the easter stuff was 75% off. But I still need a few more.

DH got DD a coin book a couple of trips ago, so I can't help you there. But I have been saving my old pennies.

(I sound like a commercial! ) I got mine on Amazon. Just checked and they have the 2nd generation one for $99.
can you post a link? please? for the one you have?

We looove the pressed pennies! We bought the book they had though - its a really nice Disneyland one with a bunch of characters in the park with the matterhorn and castle etc on a bright sunny day! I was only $8 too... still WAY cheaper than a lot of the other souveniers. As a special bonus I took it to a Mouse Meet a couple of weekends ago and got it signed by Tony Baxter and Marty Sklar - I bet you could get that signed by one or two favourite characters?

What do you use to clean them? I heard ketchup and tried it, but I wasn't impressed.

Does anyone have a good recommendation for finding cheap luggage? We need to get a large suitcase to check for our two week trip (!!!) but my husband is even having sticker shock at walmart prices.... has there been good luck at Goodwill or garage sales or something better? He doesn't want to pay $70 for a one trick pony but I also don't want to get something that smells of smoke or urine or anything...

Have you tried Kohls? Once a month or so they have the luggage 40% off.

Costco/Sam's Club typically has some good deals. We got our last set from Overstock.com. 5 piece set for about $100 if memory serves.

We went to Costco already, but the set pieces are so much spendier... we only need the one large bag so the sets won't work. I should check overstock though I bet they should have one offs! Thanks!

Hopefully they sell them solo too! I never thought finding ONE piece would be so hard and we are covered luggage-wise in the other sizes since we tend to just take carry-ons and have weekend bags and such!

Do ou have a TJ Maxx or Ross? You can usually find good prices there. Name brands too!
