But our girls are older and MUCH craftier now so we decided to make it a challenge. We are doing a combo WDW/WWoHP trip - both girls LOVE Harry Potter. So in relation to that we're going to leave daily Harry Potter-themed picture clues around the house. More details on the look of it and how we're going to do it in my PTR (see link in my siggy)

Thankyee! It is hard some days not telling them ...especially if one of them is having a bad day. But we are just over 2 weeks out from laying out our first clue. It will be very interesting to see how long it takes them to figure it all out
That sounds like fun!! I'm so horrible at keeping secrets. So far I have 2 that I have to keep and it's driving me crazy you will have to fill us in as you drop clues.

We'll be at MVMCP on the 21st! We're going mainly for the lower crowds and seeing it snow on Main Street will be great. But, we're adults with no kids so it won't be hard for us to stay the entire time and "get our money's worth" out of the event.

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.
Congrats on the job! More spending money

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
My Target only let me spend $500 on each transaction. I've only used my Target Red card 3 times and the last time it wouldn't let me spend more than the $500. I think it's only for the first couple of months though....the spending limit. Has anyone else run into this? I'll be getting my final $500 worth of Target Disney Cards this friday and paying off my balance then. Woohoo! I would get all you can with your Target debit card. 5% is more spending money on your trip!

I have the same issue, I keep a hard case in my backpack an switch back and forth but it can be a pain especially if I forget
