Everything is all ready to go...except for...

the calendar!
2-10 January 2013
We are all ready now, finally bit the bullet and bought the plane tickets today! With awesome arrival time (coming from western NY, arriving at MCO at 11am!).
Disney - PIF!
Airlines- PIF!!
ADRs - SET! Though I am kind of intrigued about the Terrace Dessert Party...
BBB appt - SET (but still trying to change it to an earlier time)
PP+ - done
Mousekeeping tip envelopes - made and filled!
ADR tip envelopes - made and filled!
even: Airport parking money envelope - made and filled!
Daily Itinerary - loosely set (traveling with a 5 year old!)

Last night I changed a couple of my ADRs to make it so we can see the Osborn lights before they end...

SO READY!

43 days...and it is going to fly between Thanksgiving, Christmas prep, Christmas celebration, New Years then we LEAVE on the 2nd!

-Fran =)

We will be there the Jan 3rd on our Make a wish trip and I swear there are 45 days till the third. One of us needs to count again because that extra day in the count down totally matters to me! So far I have made half a wheel chair bag (ok, more like 25%) and a bunch of mouseheads for our countdown calender. I really need to get reservations made for a couple of lunches!

Howdy neighbor!
We are staying at All Star Movies...
We stayed there for our honeymoon in 2000 (actually requested the same room) and I think DD5 will LOVE the themeing!

We opted to fly out of Rochester, the price difference right now was not worth the drive (especially since we are 40min east of Rochester).

Are you planning on taking the tips out of the envelope? Because frequently wait staff and maids will just assume it is trash and toss it.

The envelopes are very visibly computer printed largely on what they are (Mousekeeping Tip 4 January Thank you! With a Disney character picture on it, or Name of Restaurant TIP 4 January Thank You!) For the ADR tips I will most likely take them out. Mousekeeping I wasn't. I'll post pics in the morning.
As for what's in them, Mousekeeping I have $5 a day and the ADR ones I looked up on Allears about how much our meal would come to and tipped 20%.

Just wanted to say hi to the Western NY'ers too! We're in Lockport (near Buffalo) and will be heading down on January 13th for my son's 3rd birthday and my MIL's first trip.

I hope you guys have a wonderful trip. I like the idea of setting all the tip money aside beforehand.
