You are welcome! I know that during some of our stays, our housekeeper has changed mid-trip. I found some really cute mousekeeping envelope designs here: http://www.themouseforless.com/downl...ekeeping.shtml

There are some great mousekeepers envelopes at wdwprepschool.com. I have made 5 of them, one for each night we are there. Putting $5 in each envelope. We are a family of 4 but are very neat people. I have them filled already so I just have to lay one out each day during our stay next month.

Thanks for the website. I'll definitely check it out. I'm always on the lookout for new mousekeeping envelope designs.

Thank you both for the websites! I had yet to come across these. I am definitely making my own mousekeeping envelopes.

Something tells me that I am not the only one with a planning binder solely devoted to a Disney trip!

Our next trip will be our 20th to Disney and I still get giddy working on our plans. I have a notebook used solely for the purpose of keeping up with all things Disney.

Thanks to all the posters who continue to fill us in on their respective "fridge adventures".
I've gone back a few pages and it looks like some of the refrigerators at the CBR have been replaced, right? When will this resort be done? I check in on 9/24 and would like to have a refrigerator.

That's the plan as far as I know.

We are in Trinidad North right now. Our room had a fridge. The 2 rooms our friends have next to us did not have working fridges. Our friends each called to ask about the $15 per night refund and were told a fridge would be delivered. Both rooms now have fridges! If you do not have a fridge inquire about a refund and you will have one. The front desk told us there were no extra fridges until we asked for the $15.

We do the Mousekeeping envelopes too. I don't have a printer so last time we went I just took regular white envelopes and decorated them with Disney stickers. We are a family of 4 so I have $4.00 in each envelope. Every morning before we leave I just put one on the table and out we go. We are pretty clean as well, I am one of those crazy people that makes the beds when we get up, I know they are just going to strip them down but I still do it.

I make my envelopes ahead of time and put money in them so that when we leave for Disney the envelopes are already to go. That way I don't have to take money out of my precious souvenir money once we are at the parks.

You sound like my Mama. She makes up her bed, tidies up the bathroom, etc. before ever leaving her room. We are neat travelers but I don't do all that.

I loved having all of my envelopes all pre-filled and ready to put out. Saved a lot of time and, like you, I knew that I wasn't taking away from my souvenir money.
