I LOVE your stroller plate! Just a warning that you may already know. The cm's WILL move your stroller. Don't panic if you come out and can't find it, like the poor woman I saw on our last trip. The cm's can tell you where it probably got moved to.

Your Mickey notes are too cute!!

And I hope I didn't read it here and are telling you something you said yourself--but I read somewhere that someone got clear ponchos and sharpies and they all decorated their ponchos with Disney things themselves and didn't have to spend big bucks on ponchos at the park or have boring ponchos. I thought that was a fun idea.

Thanks!! I've heard about the moving of the strollers, but thanks still for the heads up!

That wasn't on my report, but that's a fun idea! I have all kinds of colorful permanent markers!

Thanks! Happy to give ideas or share anything I have made if you want it!

I've been reading romance books this week, literally on my 6th! Most have been short easy reads, but last nights was almost 500 pages! It was called Wanted, by Kelly Elliot, today second book!

I know it's so sad that the show will not be the same...I was already getting pretty turned off of it with all the changes this last year, so this will make it harder to stay interested.

So sad to hear about the young man from Glee. I don't watch that show but it still saddens me.

You might be able to go to kinkos or one of the office supply stores and get your license plate laminated, just call and ask for pricing first as I am not sure of the cost.

Decorating the ponchos sounds fun but I wouldn't want to unwrap them unless yoy have to. They never fold up so small again. Did you say you had a rain cover for the stroller? If not, grab a few extra ponchos to cover the stroller and bring some clothes pins to attach it to the stroller. Hopefully you will never need the ponchos.

Sounds like a good book. I have the same problem, whenever I have a book to read nothing ever gets done and I stay up all night reading.

Love the letters you made for the girls, they are going to be so excited!

Not having been before I want to soak it up and not be hell bent on seeking out all these things, because I'm sort of all or nothing, if I decide to do if I kinda get carried away and throw my whole heart in!

So, just to let you know what we did...maybe it's a better way to look at the pennies.

We didn't search them out. Most of the pennies my son got was while we were waiting for our ADRs. There is a lot of waiting in Disney and they strategically place the penny machines where the people wait. It is easy to carry some change around with you and just get them when you see them. Only takes a few seconds.

Not trying to convince you one way or the other (it honestly doesn't matter to me whether you do them or not) but I just wanted you to know that you don't need to run around like a crazy person seeking them out....the Disney "powers that be" know just where to put stuff like that

What kind of handle does your stroller have?? Or are you renting one?? I can't remember. My stroller had the curve up handles, vs the bar across handle. I bought some colorful little girl hair elastics and put them all down the handle. It made it comfortable to hold on to, as well as super easy to spot. Everyone has the stroller signs (and they are fabulous, don't get me wrong), but you should have something on the handle or top of the stroller to make it easy to spot if it is in the middle of the crowd. My rainbow colored handles really stood out in the sea of black ones

Yes yes yes! Make sure you have a poncho to cover the stroller too. We made that mistake...didn't even think about it. Ugh, that was a horrible afternoon!

I am a Glee fan too. I am so sad about this news. I knew he was having problems, but I just hoped he could resolve them. I am not a fan of the new direction the show is taking, I just kept watching to see if Rachel and Finn would get back together. Now I'm just not sure I will watch anymore. I will probably watch to see how they write the character off, but after that....well I guess it depends on what the next season looks like. Just so sad

That's good to know about the pennies!

I am renting a stroller there, but I still planned on making something for the handles so it will stick out, and the rental came with a rain cover, yay!

Thanks for all the tips!!! so glad I found the Dis!

Yea, I think laminating will be a little better! I agree about the ponchos, they are surprisingly hard to fold!

Thanks!

So... Sorry I am a bit behind... But did we ever figure out if we are all doing a Dismeet on the 21st in MK? Since Suzi and I will be there, and so will you... I don't have it in my notes though - not sure if I just forgot to put it there, or if we didn't plan one. If not, we should...
