Got our mickey mail a few days ago ...now waiting on our magic bands. Question about parades...where do they normally start (front of the park or back)? I've heard people say that the Party parades start from the back and the everyday parades (Celebrate and electrical) start from the front Anyone know?

2. FP choices: JOLM (Little Mermaid) is a clamshell ride similar to HM, and Nemo in Epcot. We were able to ride last November during preview. I do not think its worth a FP. The line , no matter how long , will move really quick. Plus the theming in the que is amazing, and like SPM it has games to play if you do wait. FP for STWB ( Belle) is a must if available. I think POTC and BTMRR are also good choices, and then SplM and Buzz.
Thanks for the info on JOLM. We do have FP+ for STWB before our dinner at BOG. We are really looking forward to both of these

Now I am MORE than super excited!! I need to go back and read everything to learn how to work all of this. I used to be here on the Dis on a regular basis but the past year has been a whirlwind for us. My mom is fighting brain cancer. As of this moment the cancer is gone and she is doing maintenance chemo. She is coming with us on this trip which makes it even more special. As many times as we have gone, this is our first trip during Thanksgiving. We are excited to see all the decorations for Thanksgiving & Christmas.

Anyway, long story short....Glad I found this thread. Looking forward to talking with all of you over the next month!
So happy you're here. We spent Thanksgiving in Disney 2 years ago it was wonderful. The weather is great and the decorations are spectacular.

I'll keep your Mom and family in our prayers

Ok I'm confused.
Is my luggage tags with my vouchers Mickey Mail? This did not have Magic Express tags, just the luggage tags. If NO what comes in Mickey Mail?

I assume Magic Express will send me tags on another day.

And then again I'll be getting my box with my Magic bands but since I have until the 17th to customize, I know I won't see them until after that.

My last trip they came together, I got nervous when they weren't in the envelope. No big deal though, just means more mail from Disney. I am still waiting on Magic Bands, ME luggage stickers and I'm about to order PP+ so i guess I'll be getting the voucher for that. That should keep me occupied for a minute or two.

That's what I thought!!!


35 days to go.....well technically since I'm about to crash 34.

Has anyone noticed that when you are wanting a specific smilie, you have to use the more function cause it's not appearing in the quick column?
How do the "chosen ones" get in that column?
Is it like the "chosen ones" of the Disney pin world?

I know it's very random but I love the smilies.
Here's one of your favorites I think

Don't forget you have to get your luggage

Oh yeah, but Costco is the one store I actually like shopping at. Frozen yogurt in a solo cup for $1.35 is just so freakin' awesome. Although Costco just replaced their Coke machine in the snack bar with Pepsi. I'm not quite over that yet, people shouldn't mess with my Diet Coke. And if they are going to, they should at least supply me with wine as a substitute.

Speaking of shopping, I really don't like it so I try to get it done all at one time. Last month I took my husband and boys to Kohls because they all needed a lot of things, especially hubby. We dropped $700. A couple of weeks later we got a card from the CEO of Kohls thanking us for our loyalty. We couldn't stop laughing - that's how you know you spent too much at a store.

Same thing for me, what a waste of a stamp. Why not include the ME tags? I gave them the info at the beginning of August when I booked.

I refuse to be anywhere warm when Christmas rolls around. It must be cold and I want snow!

Sorry, I must have missed it, I updated the post.

So sorry about your mom, my birth mother had brain cancer, but it was way before all these modern treatments. She was actually one of the trial people who got interferon(sp?) implanted directly into her brain. Hope your mom has a magical trip.

Yes you are, we are going to have to have a DIS party one of those days.

Wait, what? I thought Peter Pan was only closed until the 13th? I think I booked a FP+ for it on the 15th.

We never played Sorcerer's of the MK before, but since we have 7 people in our party I figured we would each get a pack and that would be enough. Do we really need to get some in advance?
Last report on PP was the 15th not 17th my error, sorry! I have a FP for the 15th, but looks like it may wrap up early. So keep an eye out that week!

Sorcerers is most fun with a bunch of cards so the kids can choose which spells to counter with. The pack cards in the MK fire house will likely give alot of doubles, unless you have a bunch of people in your party , buy a few before hand.

Oh and that will likely be my kid trying to eat the "snow"....I'll let you all know what he says it tastes like. : )
I was that kid eating the snow....about 8 people asked me what it tasted like......
