Always. Although now that I wear glasses full time, I have no idea what I'm going to do. I can see without them but its nice to actually be able to see things clearly. And I don't want to carry 2 pair.

Ugh! No something I wanted to think about.

Terri, I went to Walmart and bought the clip on sunglasses. They have tons of them in the eye department ( only at the Walmarts with eye care). I think it was $15, well worth it to me. When indoors I just slide the attachment off. It IS nice to be able to see!

We generally leave $5. But we're usually in a 1-bedroom suite with a kitchen, so that's a different consideration. We do leave it everyday because although you generally get the same person, it might change.

Evernote in the Cloud.

I do take a couple 12x12 scrapbook paper organizers. Basically plastic pockets that fasten for bringing home all the paper souvenirs.

I'm so anal I even including a list of everything I packed in case the airline looses my luggage and I have to file a claim with my travel insurance. I figure if I'm always prepared for the worst case scenario it'll never happen - right????

Usually I organize the binder in the chronological order I'll need things to make them easy to get to. You know - air confirmation for the flight down, rental car confirmation (if we rent a car), hotel confirmation, touring plans and ADR confirmations for each park day, etc., etc. The stuff I'll probably not need at all (like the travel insurance policy) goes in the back. I always take copies of the backs of our park passes and put those in the binder too (in case we lose a pass).

I have a Garmin app on my iPhone, so I don't usually print directions off anymore, unless I know the Garmin is going to give me directions I won't want to take for some reason.

One tip - if you hole punch a big envelope and include it in the binder it makes a great place to stuff all your receipts at the end of each day to keep track of your spending. Packing an empty 2 gallon zip lock bag gives you a great place to stick park maps, postcards, etc. that you want to keep for crafts or mementos.

Oh, and DON'T pack the binder in your checked luggage (and yes, I learned that one the hard way)!!!
All makes perfect sense to me. I still do all this; it's just digital.

Have you been to either party before? Are you interested in characters? What about the Party most appeals to you and what concerns you? It's really a personal preference thing.

I think go for it! This year will be our first, but there was no doubt I wanted to do this. I beat myself up last year because I missed the opportunity.

I know what you mean! This weekend we went pumpking picking, apple picking, and then carved the pumpkins. I feel like I've done my part for "Fall". It's time to move onto December. Let's get this show on the road.

I think you should because I am.

Do you need more MK time?
Do you want to see characters you wouldn't normally see?
Do you need to see our favorite characters dressed in holiday garb?
Do you want to see it snow on Main Street?

If you said yes to any of these questions above then you NEED to go to MVMCP!

I'm going bonkers not being able to mess with my ADRs. When is the disney dining going to be done with "maintenance"? How much maintenance does one site need to go through?

I really want to go but they say everything is the same after the last party. People are telling me that I am paying just for cookies and hot chocolate.
I will be there Dec 20-26 and still deciding... I am debating if I should add one more night or go to MVMCP!

MVMCP is a must-do for us. We'll be at the 12/4 party!
