Now I think if it was between one more night in WDW vs a party... Yeah I'd be spending another night at WDW! Don't get me wrong I love the parties but one day longer is a pretty good trade off!

Happy Tuesday everybody, I am so excited 62 days to go. Also I started to get antsy just staying home with the babies and going to school, part time so I applied for a job at close by but it's at a rehab center which I have never done and it's more of a manager position. Anyways I went today and I got the job!! It's good because I work only on weekends and can pick up more time if I want to, kinda nervous leaving my baby home. He will be with my mother but he is BFed and is very spoiled and normally only wants to be with his mommy . Hope all goes well training starts next weekend.

Back to the world, I am pretty excited about everything being up and running for our visit. I really hope DH loves it. I mean I have already talked Him into APs, since we have planned to take the kids for their first trip in September 2013. I have been trying to change the park order because now we do have more time. Does anyone with an AP find themselves hopping to other parks more? Well if I am not back on hope everyone has a great week.

we almost have the same dates! What convinced me was knowing how packed it was going to be that week and the great advantage we'd have with the MVMCP as far as less crowds and more time for us to ride attractions and do more.

Tomorrow is our 50 Day Mark...

And the day we pay off our WDW vacation !!!

The only thing I'm bummed about is finding out on another thread that TT won't officially open to the public until 12/6 - the day after we do our second day at Epcot ! I was so looking forward to going on it especially with my mom and brother joining us this time. It was also DS10's favorite ride when he was 4. I was really hoping that Disney would open TT by 11/30.

Keep your fingers crossed for a soft opening. Do you have park hoppers?

But yay for 50 days and a paid off trip!!

I have a plastic according file that I used for our first trip in 2006. I have everything I need in there including a zippered pencil case that I put small things in (last time it held buttons, wrist bands and MNSSHP tickets). It keeps our flight info, TA confirmation, ADRs, DME, etc all organzied. I'm bringing it with us again and it will stay in our room for when we need it.

No park hoppers. We decided not to do that since my mom and brother haven't been in 19 years. So it's like going for the first time all over again for them. If we were going every few years, then I would've gotten the park hoppers.

The Disney Parks Blog did say it "officially" opens to the public on 12/6. Hopefully they will have a soft opening on the days we are there.

I also was not planning on going to Epcot on the 6th or 7th and we leave on the 8th in the morning. Keeping my fingers crossed for a soft opening. Monday the 3rd would be great

Payment advice

So, I've been sitting on full payment for months. Its just what I do. I don't pay til I have to.

Advice: I've been hearing about this Target debit card. I'm assuming there are no fees, its just something linked to my bank account. Although is there a spending limit?

Because I'm thinking, should I put the amount (Just under 6k) on Disney gift cards to get a 5% discount and pay my balance that way? Or am I missing something?

TIA

That's a lot of GCs

You actually might have a hard time buying that many all at once. GC in large dollar amounts are a big red flag for most retailers/banks... Might take a few trips!

I saw a Disney GC that let you put any amount from $500-$5000. I don't know what to do

Agreed. We're not doing the Party. We love MNSSHP but I don't think this one would be worth it for us. Too much other holiday stuff going on.
