    I was at my local Dollar Tree store yesterday and was surprised to find the hard cover book "Celebration U.S.A.-Living in Disney's Brave New Town" by, Douglas Frantz & Catherine Collins.
    I've just started reading it and so far it's pretty interesting. Definately worth a buck!:D
    I apologize if this has already been posted & I missed it but I thought it was worth passing along.

    FYI...Dollar Tree has some fabulous deals. One that my family always uses from DT is purchasing the raincoats for $1.00 vs buying them at Disney. We stock up every year as we go 3-4 times a year and you never know when that rain will hit. Better to be stocked and prepared.

    Just wanted to mention.....it's not best to buy suntan lotion at Dollar Tree (if anyone considered it). It is likely old, at least a year or two, and may not give you or your kids the protection you will need in Florida's strong sun. I know first hand that this is true, out dated suntan lotion does not work well if at all and you can get burnt bad. :D

    Do you guys have this store where you live? I love this place. Thay had some Disney girl paperback series books, mickey/minnie pencil cases/sets, mickey hand post it holder, 100 year celebration magnets. I never know what I will find. I was just wondering if this was just a local store, or if they are in other areas.

    hi everyone,
    I just bought one of those flat boogie boards or floats what ever you want to call them,the kids use them to float on,,they are flat and will fit in the suitcase perfect.... then we are going to leave it for someone else to enjoy....better than renting at pool!

    Hey! No, ours doesn't have any of that cool Disney stuff right now - boo. We do have the neat boogey boards, though - got some! Also got these great packs that come with glow stick, necklace, and bracelet. Plan to hand these to the girls at Fantasmic! Only six more days...can't wait!!

    RobinLyn: In agreement. You wait and wait and wait and can't wait for the Disneyday to arrive. And than Poof it's over. Why does it have to end so fast???Regardless, have a safe trip and hope you have excellent weather - went this time last year and in July and the weather was hot hot hot. Enjoy!!! By the way, let me know how the hotel is - haven't stayed yet but would like to though. Much magic to you and yours!

    Here in Central NJ, there's a store called Dollar Planet on Route 27 in Franklin Park.

    I was in there on Sunday and they had quite a few little Disney story books. They had Dumbo, Toy Story, Tarzan, Cinderella, etc.

    I found that reading books like these was a great way to prepare my little ones the first time we went to Disney and they were too young to sit through the movies. It helped them get to know the characters.

    They also had Winnie the Pooh pencil sets that were cute. I stocked up prior to our trip and gave our girls a little surprise every day. It really helped keep souvenier costs down.
