    You have to call vacation planning and reserve ahead--they sometimes run out of items. They will charge your card 3 days before arrival and deliver between 4-6 pm on your arrival day.

    We're under the 4 week mark :) I really need to get in gear and get organized for Thanksgiving, but all I want to think about is Disney!

    My suitcase I pulled out to start collecting odds and ends is beginning to overflow. I'm wondering how many we're going to have to end up taking. EEK! I used to be a one bag/carry-on only kinda girl, kiddos have sure changed that!

    The Mad T party either starts at 6 or 7 depending on the park's hours that day. The night we watched (Friday 11/9) it started at 7 with rocked out versions of Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum welcoming everyone in to the party. The show started with the Mad Hatter and Alice singing regular songs with the band but after about 15 minutes they switched to holiday songs and the snow started falling in the area in front of the stage. It was a very fun night especially with older kids that enjoyed the concert like atmosphere.

    I posted some Buena Vista Street photos above - now back to Cars Land. (This is the 4th time I am trying to submit this post - for some reason I couldn't get the Cars Land photos to post in this thread a few minutes ago, but they posted in my TR with no problem.)

    So about 15 after the hour it sounds like, thanks for letting us know.

    Those small little trees went up in price. They were only $20 two years ago. I still think I need to get one since we will be there on Christmas eve.

    I did not see any Snowman Mickey popcorn buckets, as there have been in the last couple of years. They may have been around and I missed them. But I saw quite a few Santa Mickey popcorn buckets!

    Okay, I have got to get the following: (thanks for the food porn Sherry)

    Candy Cane Cotton Candy - it looks delectable.

    The little Christmas Tree for 30.00 stinking dollars. But we need a tree for that Santa gift or Santa won't know where to put Alex's present.

    That Santa Mickey plaid hat. I don't know the price but it is a must have.

    And the Ghiradelli candy of course as I live for that in November and December.

    Less than 40 days now. I can't wait!

    This makes me sad too. We're staying at the GCH and was hoping the tree would be up. We leave this Sunday and come back after Thanksgiving, so hopefully it will go up sometime during our stay? I can hope, right?

    Does Mickey Mouse do a meet and greet in Toontown during the holiday season and if so is he in a holiday outfit? What about other characters in Toontown during this time of year? Also where can we find Duffy bear ?

    It has been my experience that when you meet Mickey at his house he is in one of four outfits: his standard, bandleader mickey, sorcerer mickey or steamboat willy mickey. He will not be dressed for the holidays in house.

    But, you can still see him dressed up outside of Toontown. You can frequently find him in Town Square and we used to see him my Small World occasionally in the winter.

    So, I posted this on my PTR... but I figured I should post here too for people that may be interested in this:

    Vacation Planning lady just called me... and I now have a new job ambition--I want her job!!! She told me she just got back from doing some shopping for me :cool1:

    Okay, the bad news... I asked for Ghiradelli squares for my daughter's basket... turns out they are on a separate contract with Disney, and don't accept vacation planning's $. So, no squares :headache:

    But, this is what she has found... My ornament/figurine I want... she was making sure, because it is big for an ornament (says so at Disneystore too)... I'm going to use it as a decoration thing not as an ornament... Anyhow, it is Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald and a little tiny Chip & Dale in a sleigh overflowing with presents... $39.95... done, and bought! :thumbsup2

    Disneyland Uno, a christmas light necklace... now she was looking for a Minnie holiday headband she told me about... and it was sold out in DCA and World of Disney, but she hasn't given up... but told me she picked up the necklace and wanted to know if I wanted it--I saw it on Sherry's Christmas mechandise post--so Yes Please!! We still might end up with a headband if she can find it though. Then to replace the Ghiradelli squares, she found some Mickey holiday krispy treats. Oh, and a photo book--I made an autograph book this year with pics of my dd with characters from previous years... but we won't have a photo book for the new pictures. She wasn't sure what she could find that didn't have autograph pages, and she found something! So yay!! :banana:

    Anyhow, she was calling to tell me all this, and that she had spent $100 already, and should she keep looking for the headband? Told her, yes please, and thank you!! Oh, btw, the stuff she's already bought will be charged to my card now... and then there will be another charge for the $40 (custom basket fee) and the headband if she finds it.

    I am sooo excited!! 3 weeks today!! :dance3:
