    I got them from the disney store's website. They were $7.95 each. I've never been to WDW, but I heard they were like $13 there so I wanted to have them before we went!

    We'll be there the same time you are but we're staying offsite...I was a little bummed since it's our first time but we had an offer we couldn't pass up...I'm totally with you when it comes to Disney now...I am obsessed :thumbsup2

    I need to be as organized as you...I'm still trying to figure out ADR's...

    Oh thank you! The Disney Store is having their friends sale now and everything is 25% off. I have a few shirts in my cart, but I'll have to see about the books. Is that where you got the light up twirly toys (or whatever those are...hehe)?

    The light up character wand things were at Target for $5 each! They were in the toy section, in the aisle with their "value" toys. When I found them at my local Target, these were the last 3 they had! I thought it was fate LOL

    If I found a great deal offsite I would do it too!! I am working with a travel agent for this trip, but she told me when she booked my ADRs that a few of them were the only times available for the days I wanted them. I hope you guys have a magical trip, too!!

    Thanks for the tip on the autograph books. With the disney store sale and free shipping, I was able to buy them online for $5.96 each. :cool1: And I'm off to Target this weekend now. :lmao:

    Awesome! :banana: I took advantage of their sale, also, and got new bathing suits and flip flops for my kiddos. Gotta love a sale! Good luck finding what you want at Target!

    Well, I had to completely change up my entire vacation due to finances and deciding on a trip for 2014. Here are the new plans:

    Who: Myself, DD (5) and DD (2)-- my son and my friend will not be going now

    When: May 3-9 instead of June 9-14

    Where: Now staying at POP Century instead of Caribbean Beach

    Why: I had to purchase a new vehicle which took money from my vacation fund, and a friend and I are planning a 2014 trip to take our sons, so this trip has turned into a girls trip. princess:

    Well, my son's 2014 trip fell through so I needed to add him back onto this trip!! In order to be able to afford it now, I had to push it back to October! :headache: This is the most insane trip planning I have ever done!!! I am SO bummed I will be missing the flower and garden festival, and that we won't be in Disney for my daughter's birthday, but at least we will all be there as a family in October.
