Smile Presents from Mickey

I thought I would share something that I do with my girls each time I go to disney. Before our trip I buy several Disney themed little gifts in advance, from dollar store or sometimes at Disney store (wherever you can find disney character things). Things like coloring books, disney cups, sunglasses, whatever I can find cheap. Every morning that we are in Disney my girls wake up to a special gift from Mickey. (kinda like the easter bunny and santa claus) They have come to expect it now, always anxious to see what Mickey is going to bring them.
The last time that I went, I didn't like the things I was finding at dollar store and didn't really want anymore junk. So I bought some Disney Bucks and typed out a letter in disney font, signed by Mickey Mouse and I printed it on Mickey scrapbook paper that I found at the craft store. The letter stated that Mickey was so excited to see them and was giving them money to buy something special at the parks. I figured we always end up buying them something at the parks anyway, a pin for trading or a toy at Toon town, so we just gave them the money and let them choose what to spend it on. It actually saved me some money and my girls thought it was the neatest thing. We now have a neat letter from Mickey to put in our scrapbooks.

This sounds like fun. See you are already up to 4. You will have 10 in no time.

Thanks for the idea. I just might have to borrow that one.

When we went to WDW last year, I used tips like this and made the trip so special for my boys. In the weeks preceding our trip, I watched the sales on the Disney Outlet, and managed to get BOGO stuffed animals, t-shirts for under $5, hats, all sorts of goodies - then coloring books for the road, and printables online. I'm already ahead of the game and working on a checklist for this year's trip. I'm hoping to make up a special explorers discovery book for my 6yo (almost 7 then), and maybe a more basic version for my 3yo (who will be closer to 4 by then) since we're staying at AKL. Last year when we went we bought DS his own DIGI camera, and I'm thinking it will come in handy for his explorer book this time around.

postcards

I am just curious about how this postcard thing works. Is it as simple as buying and sending postcards while you are in the parks?? I only ask because I figured I would buy a bunch while I am there this time and have them for the future. Is there any reason why they couldn't be sent from our hometown? As long as our children aren't old enough to pay attention to the postmark city??

abbreviations

where can I find the cheat sheet with all of the abbreviations? I am having a hard time understanding some of these posts with all the abbreviations. I had seen it somewhere and can't find it now.
