Getting ready to leave...

To come home that is

We've had a great time and now it's time to go back to reality, unfortunately. Bell hop is coming at 7:10 to pick up our luggage then afterwards over to CBR's Custom House to do our airline check in before heading over to DTD.

For those already here and are looking at shipping their Disney purchases back home here's an FYI that we found out yesterday. Items that are shipped via UPS will not arrive to your home until after Christmas. In other words January. The cut off date was December 5. This is the problem we have with the few items we bought. I still have to get a few more things over at DTD and now have to find a way to see if we can see if my mom or brother have room in their carry-on for those few items.

I'll give a mini trip report tomorrow after we are settled in at home (we're arriving home close to midnight tonight) and probably a full one on the Trip Reports board, which I'll link to this thread.

Gotta go. DH needs to pack up his laptop. Oh, before I go - Just wanted to say to Christine that it was nice meeting you on the bus a few nights ago! And to Valgoof - glad everything worked out for your vacation plans and that you are able to keep your original dates . I got the update from Christine on the bus.

It's a really cute show and I enjoyed both watching and participating. Of course, it helps that BatB is my favorite Disney movie, and that I really love kids. But I would still recommend trying it
I should also add that they have enough parts now for everyone to participate. So when they say "Did everyone get a part that wants one?" There's no reason adults can't volunteer if they are game. I probably would have if I wasn't taking pics. But then, I do stand in character lines independent of my son.

DH and DD were so excited they were drinking hot cocoa in the lobby at 1.30am whilst I was sleeping haha. We set off an hour ago and Agnes (she's our gps) says we have 1hr 25 left. She can be quite bossy, that's when I call her Nagnes . Quoting is too much of a pain on the phone sorry. @Lcaemom sorry to hear about the accident but so glad no-one was hurt. @mom2travel so cool you got to meet cybrkitn!!! I hope I meet some of you! @tofubeast how are you feeling today? Hope you're getting better xx @everyone else, hope you are all well and I miss you x

MK went up in a couple spots. Everything went up sat the 15th. But nothing as big a change as AK.
I just got that email. It's almost a universal reduction in crowd predictions for every day I'm going to be there! I'm surprised by how much AK dropped though. Seems odd.

You might have noticed that my boyfriend glitters. It's just something that he does in the sun. Don't worry about it.

Thank you so much! You have put my mind at ease.

LOL! I always pack way to early, so I was trying not to this year. But we're busy all day tomorrow and we leave Monday so holy moly I need to get on that!

Edit: To add insult to injury my printer is out of ink and I can't print any of my docs.

Honestly, I love the characters as much as my girls do. Poor hubby is good about indulging us...although he seemed to enjoy seeing Jasmine last year!

I am so excited for you! Maybe you can start a wedding planning thread. I know a lot of people who could offer tips and suggestions, especially if it's a Disney wedding!

Mine too! This is me right now. this is me when I think of everything that needs to be done.

DH and I has a wonderful date to celebrate our anniversary. He sent roses to me at work and bought the new coach cross body bag I wanted. Then we had a yummy steak dinner and cocktails afterwards. I didn't drink much because of my medicine but hubby had a few and had to go back to bed this am because he had a headache! I think his head feels something like this.
