    Wow! I just found this thread and I am 50 days out! (49 actually, since we are driving to the airport in Chicago the night before since we have a 6:05 AM flight) :yay:

    We are going the 22-30 of January and staying at Pop on the s/p/d deal, upgraded to the regular DDP after seeing the cost of a meal at CRT!

    This is a surprise for the kids and we are telling them on Christmas day - I can't wait, I am so very excited!!!!!! :hyper:

    Everything came together this time for me, so they do change it sometimes. Past visits I did receive 2 separate mailing as you describe above.:)

    Have you decided how you are telling them on Christmas day? I can't wait to hear how excited, I'm sure they will be. Heck, if someone did that for me on Christmas, I would be.

    We received our ME packet on Saturday and then luggage tags and package info today. A month and a few days. I can barely contain the excitement.

    I know we are all counting down the days now. YAY!!:woohoo: Im so excited for our trip and for everyone that is about to embark on magical adventures of your own! I wanted to ask a question if I may. My family has only taken 1 vacation before. We drove for 27 hours to MA when DH came home from Afghanistan last time. Packing was eh. lol I only had 3 kids, it was still pretty warm so summer clothes were small and in full swing. Ive begun packing but man am I overwhelmed! We have another baby now and while his clothes are small, he comes with so much stuff! :eek:

    My question is, do any of you have a system for this? Oh and I should mention this trip is a surprise so packing has to be in secret......which makes things harder.

    You can always do laundry at the resort. I did this last time and worked out great!

    Very true. I cringe to think about opening 4 bags of boys clothes when we get back. :crazy2: It would be nice to clean everything the night before and just have them put their things away when we get home.

    I agree that you should order one to help pass the time for June. Who doesn't like getting mail from Disney? Go for it. :thumbsup2

    We are going to have a balloon in a box with a note attached to the ribbon and (hopefully!) it will pop up when they open it. I do need to figure out how to get a helium filled balloon on Christmas Eve... We are also including a countdown chain in the box a well so they will know exactly how many more sleeps! I am so excited I can't stand it! I know my DH will be thrilled when they know so I'll have someone else to talk to about it! ;)

    Party supply stores sell miniature disposable helium tanks that are just intended to fill a small number of balloons, not very expensive at all. You might even be able to find them at Target/Walmart.

    I am getting so excited!! 37 days!! Got most of the ADRs we wanted-trying a few new places this trip-Raglan Road, CRT, Tusker house dinner, and still trying to get a late morning breakfast to Chef mickeys on our departure day. If I knew what park the kids would want to goto that morning, I'd just make a breakfast ADR there, but my inner freak-planner is going to try not to stress about it. :) maybe one will open up, or we can find one that week.

    That's what I was thinking. I don't know about Target, but I have seen the small ones at Wal Mart. Then you could have a Mickey one and green and red ones.
