Awesome!

I didn't take any pictures as I went, so I'll post the link to the blog I based it off of (I hope it's not an issue if I post a link!). I did my long seam a little differently to give it a cleaner look, and my dimensions were a little different. The blog says 3" wide, but I would go wider to make sure it fits.

The way I put it on is to slide the cover over the band and scrunch it up so that it's mostly just covering the Mickey part. Then I fasten the band as usual and un-scrunch the cover so that the whole band is encased in the fabric. If you don't scrunch it up enough, the "tail" or the extra grey part with the holes won't be inside the cover. Does that make sense? I'll try to post some pictures of my own tomorrow to better explain it, but I think the blog below will help. It also has instructions for a sewed version.

Perfectly understood. Can't believe that solution didn't occur to me lol ... Thanks for sharing the info - DS2 will love a cover - now to decide between toy story, planes, or cars... If they are as easy as you say I'll have to make all three :-)

Ugh, i was looking at some 10 day forecasts and it's mostly low 80s for my trip...i'm from So Cal and we've been basically having a mild summer instead of winter and i was looking forward to slightly cooler weather, you know, low 70s...i guess i'm packing a couple pairs of shorts instead of just one in case!

Don't you be saying things like that!!!!
We've been celebrating that (based on current forecasts) we'll be leaving 3 degrees for 79....and 3 degrees isn't even close to "too cold" for us!!
This time next week we'll be on the plane heading for some heat!

70 is still "warm" if you are coming from 3 degrees!

26 days & counting... looking at portable external battery charger for our phones... With everything going through MDE I'm not sure battery will stand up to kids playing games in lines, my taking photos / videos and any FP+ reservation changes on the fly. Not interested in Kiosk usage - those lines look less than fun and longer than any ride lines I plan to stand in... Y'all have any thoughts on a good / dependable but reasonably priced charger pack?

- been checking extended forecast daily & the predictions vary by 10 degrees every day or two...from 69 to 79 for the hi temps... I'm not gonna worry about it too much until we really push forward with packing in the last days leading up to our flight out.

I just tried, nothing yet... I'm looking for a week from today, you'd think they'd have them by now!

I just bought an Anker Astro Mini battery from Amazon. It's big enough to recharge an iphone twice, but only the size of a tube of lipstick. Also bought a 4" cable so it can recharge while in my pocket.

Only 7 days for me!

I have the Jackery Bar 5600 mAh Premium portable power bank pack. I love it. I got it from Amazon for $29.95. I used it on our last 2 Disney trips as well as at work and pretty much daily because it's so convenient. It charges my iPhone almost 3 charges so it's great at Disney because me and my husband take turns using it. It also has a flashlight which I didn't think I'd ever use, but has ended up being my go-to extra light source. They have many different brands on Amazon for good prices and with good reviews.
