I'm tempted to put the kids in Minnie and Mickey gloves during the whole trip so they don't touch handrails in lines, etc., etc. Just kidding!! But the idea did make me chuckle. :D

Ha! We even have 2 pairs of those; my 2 older ones are being Mickey and Minnie for Halloween and will be wearing their costumes down on the plane.

EWWWW it would be easier to wash their hands than those gloves!
I'm debating wearing a surgical mask on the plane after all this talk.

Small hand sanitizer packed. Hmmmm think I better bring the big bottle the way you all are talking. Although I think I'll bring a bunch of those wetnaps to wash my hands before meals. The idea of just rubbing the germs with hand sanitizer before eating.......the wetnaps at least make me feel like I'm wiping it off.

We use Wet Wipes, too- any and all forms of cleaning, de-germing, etc are a good thing at WDW. Before meals, though, we all head into the restrooms and do a thorough hand washing.

Poor DH- even with all those precautions, he has ended up with terrible colds after our last 3 Disney vacations. He wasn't as diligent with the hand sanitizer as we were- I will make sure to rub it on him every chance I get in a few weeks!

Good reminder! I am not usually a hand sanitizer user either but usually bring them and clip one on the backpack with those cutesy little holders from Bath and Body Works.

The cold is going around here. There is no other time in my life I get so nervous about sickness and injuries as I do right before a trip. Where's my family sized bubble?

Look on the bright side- she probably has a kick-butt immune system!! I bet she is your "never gets sick" kid.

To completely change the subject- I just added 2 days and hopping to our tickets. Also changed our ADRs, FP+s, and BOG FP. Everything I wanted was available!! Hopefully that means our days are super not-busy...

Yeah, I have one of those too. He doesn't get sick though, he just brings the germs to me and gets me sick - damn kids, nothing but trouble

So my soccer team lost their playoff game tonight. I have to admit I'm slightly relieved, I really need less things to do right now.

I broke a tooth last night. Now on top of all the other crazy stuff I have to do today, I have to squeeze in a dentist appointment where they will fit be between patients (understandable) which means I sit there even longer. pout pout pout. Not liking today. BUT grateful this is now and not while I'm down in WDW.

Once again you are the man with the creative fun ideas!!! You wife and children must adore you!
Oh NOES! Thats the worst! Look at it this way, get all that bad stuff out of the way now. I am about 10 days out and nothing left to do but wait and worry about everything. I fond myself yelling at the kids to wash their hands !!!

Everyone please remember, hand sanitizers will not kill viruses! The most prevalent virus at WDW is a norovirus type of stomach flu. Hand sanitizers are useless for those...as well as most other viruses. Viruses account for 90% of all cold and flu.

Follow the golden rules:
1. Wash you hands with hot soap and water for 60 seconds after the bathroom and before eating( and hope you cooks and servers do the same)
2. Try not to touch your eyes , ears, nose, and mouth. It is the main route of viral transmission.
3. Keep you stress level low, get plenty of rest.
4. Eat healthy foods, plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits.
5. Smile alot!!!

I'm very bah humbug this year. Infact I'm not going to be home. No kidding on this part, they bus kids into our neighborhood. On warm night we can give out over 200 treats. It's insane. At this point there is barely any kids under 12 in our neighborhood.

LOL on the sanitizers.
BUT REALLY "Keep yours stress level low"?????? Can you give some crash course on this? geeze

BTW, my tooth is fixed and I was convinced to take care of the other one next week so that I can go away with less worry.

Ok gonna get that extra rest!!

Happy travels to you leaving in the next day or two.
I saw (but not surprised) that the Halloween party for the 31st is sold out.

Do those of you there that night have candy at your resort that you hand out? That would be interesting to have room to room trick or treating.
How about resort hopping treating? LOL

Good night
