Worn dirty clothes never folds as nice and neat as their clean counterparts. And I knew we'd be coming back with at least a few gifts and souvenoirs. Plus, an overweight bag was +$50, where an additional bag +$30.

All told, we went down with < 100 lbs of luggage, on our return, > 135 lbs.
I've been thinking about the new stuff we will be bringing back. After talking with my mom, I'm going to pack one of our duffle bags in one of our suitcases. This way we only have to pay the extra $25 on the way back instead of each way.

As far as dirty goes, I've planned two down-time days. One of which will be laundry day for me. It will make it so much easier when we come home so I can use our first day home to relax instead of doing laundry. all day.

Do you use DIS and photobucket apps or go through safari/Internet? I've been DISing mostly on my phone and wasn't sure what I needed to do to post pics. I suppose I could go onto safari and copy and paste the links ???

We even got 10% off the disney store in DTD for having seaworld AP. They also have a very furry Christmas now so I want to take him to that. but if you buy your 2013 season pass after January but before march it's 30% off, if you buy it now you can still use it for Halloween spooktacular. We live like 15 minutes away. So it's a great treat for nic.

I grow up in Brooklyn NY, so it feels like going hope. I always feel sad leaving, plus my sister is my best friend and I adore my niece and nephews. But the cost of living is crazy, we go at least once a month. I love the Rockefeller center lit up Christmas tree,also the dancing lights display they put on the tree. Aww can't wait for Christmas

I heard the very furry Christmas was cute. We usually do the Christmas Candylane in Hershey and my kids love that. All the rides (except the coasters and water rides) are open and it looks so pretty all lit up. And for $13 per person is a great price.

I love Rockefeller Center, it's beautiful. I love watching the ice skaters. The window displays are amazing. We always come in on the train and our first stop is breakfast at Chelsea Market

No. But I'm hearing rumors that Test Track is behind schedule. Not that there is any officially-released schedule. But I'm starting to think we might miss it.

I just looked at their site today. I'm disappointed b/c the photo album I wanted that was dated 2012 is no longer on their site I guess I waited too long - again. I'm not too fond of the photo albums they do have.

I hope not! We're going down on 11/29 and I was hoping to do TT. It's DS10's favorite ride at Epcot.

I'm getting DS10 into pin trading on this trip. I bought a bunch of sets on ebay (full sets on cards) to get him started. I made sure to include some princesses and fairies so that he won't be agonizing about what to trade.

I'm still waiting for that Mouse Pin Trading book. It was supposed to be out in early Sept but they had issues with the "final" proof.

I'll also probably get the new SOTMK pins.

That reminds me I need to get some locking backs.

I wouldnt be shocked if it is delayed, but hoping it opens. It's one of the few "thrill" rides that DH will ride with me.

Just a suggestion - one trip DS bought a bunch of Legos, large but light. So we shipped those and some other clothes and souvenirs back in a box. Now we do it every time. Cost around $10 to ship. You can buy boxes and ship from the resorts with conference centers -BWV and Dolphin have them for sure.

Noooooo I want Test Track! If it does open, I think going in early/mid December is perfect timing. New TT and New Fantasyland. Fingers crossed!
