    Hi everybody,

    We are heading to the beach tomorrow for some fun. There is a Disney outlet there so I'm planning on getting more t-shirts for our trip.

    Hope you all have a great weekend.


    :hug: This is why I no longer shy away from pictures. My mom passed 3yrs ago and we couldn't find many pictures either.

    :welcome:

    Have fun sewing!

    very cute

    Great job!

    They look great!

    Sending pixie dust!!

    Awww it's always so sad to say good-bye. I went through that so many times. I'm glad you had a wonderful visit, though. Sounds like your family is very close and that's so special. :goodvibes

    As though a trip to Disney wasn't special enough to look forward to, getting to see your Sarah makes it doubly so for you! I know the time will seem :snail: but it will be here before you know it!::yes::

    LOVE the t-shirts! I have made SSW tees (thank you Shadowriter & Dom13) and custom auto graph boos in the 2011, and Disneyfied pirate tees for our June 2012 cruise (thank you Tebi). I also made door magnets out of pirate images, and have printed & laminated images to decorate my scooter that I had to use in 2011 after feet surgeries.

    It is very easy to do iron on transfers, and. Staples sells great magnet paper. Both can be printed at home from your computer printer. I also use my disigns for scrapbook embellishments.

    I really enjoyed doing it, and everyone in our grand gatherings LOVED the finished work (especially the kids). We all got stopped and complemented:)

    If you don't feel up to doing it yourself, www.zazzle.com has wonderful personalized shirts. Online Disney Store even uses them for personalized items. Their tees are high quality with tons of different styles, same with images. My family wore the old fashioned Mickey Mouse Club image which made for awesome photos. Even CMs asked about our shirts & complimented us:).

    Another bonus with the Zazzles shirts is the imaging last 10x longer than the iron transfers. I have not had good luck with iron transfer images holding up after a few washes. JMTCW

    HTH!

    Glad to hear the first week went well. And congrats on paying off your trip!! It'll be here before you know it.:yay:

    It usually doesn't come until about 30 days out. At least that has been my experience. I did get an offer for 30% off any resort a little while back. Does that count?:rotfl:

    Hi everyone
    I haven't been very vocal this year, but I have been trying to keep up with all of you lol.
    My wife and I are getting very excited for our trip which officially starts Nov. 5th and goes until the 13th. Staying at our favorite resort POR. This is a 2 year Disney wedding anniversary trip for us. 11/10/10. Although everyone else is tagging along. (once everyone arrives 17 of us total!)
    So I would like your opinions on a dining reservation dilemma. We currently have reservations for everyone for a few meals. The problem is the total number of people the ressies are for is 18. Someone had to drop out. You can imagine it's not easy getting ressies for a group that large, in fact they are all split 10 and 8. Is it going to be a problem showing up with one less person?
    My next question is about special experiences. For our wedding/honeymoon trip (which by the way was an epic 20 days long!) we received as a gift the living with the seas snorkeling adventure. That was totally awesome. So we made it a point to do something new like that every trip. Last year we did MNSSHP. This year we aren't sure. It's between horse back riding at Fort Wilderness, or The Wild Africa Trek. I've read a few threads about them but wanted to hear from all of you if you have experienced either one.

    Thanks in advance

    Wow! 17 people! Huge undertaking. Used to be one less person wouldn't matter, but now that most places require a cc to reserve and they say they will charge $10 each for no shows, I think to be safe you should call dining and let them know it's now 17 people. It may be you would be fine, but I wouldn't take a chance.:confused3

    DH and I did the KTTK tour at MK and it was awesome! It is 5 hours long and you get lunch. If you go to the first one of the day, you enter MK when hardly anyone is there and can get some great shots of the castle and Main Street virtually empty. Also, they will be introducing a new segway tour at Epcot that is 3 hours long and includeds breakfast at Sunshine Seasons. Not sure when it's beginning, though. I've heard the Wild Aftrica Trek is lots of fun.::yes::

    I just re-read and saw you want to pick between AT and Horseback riding. Sorry for all that other stuff. I haven't done either of the two you've picked, so I'm absolutely no help there. Good luck. I'm sure either one would be special.:goodvibes

    Thanks for the insight. I looked today and I'm not sure they even offer horseback riding anymore. It wasn't listed as a special experience at least. I've always wanted to do the KTTK tour. (Hello utilidors sp?) And from what I can tell you get a photopass CD when you do the AT, and can use the card for the rest of your trip. I want to verify that for sure. Ahh first world problems trying to decide which special thing to do at Disney...

    Oh wise November crowd - anyone have a recommendation for my very first sewing machine?

    Both my sister and I have wanted to learn for years and are eager to start. I'm hoping to pick it up fast enough to get some things together for our trip! I don't want to spend too much, but want one that will work for a variety of projects. I'm hoping to do some pillows, simple clothing (open drapy cardigans), and general alterations - and my ultimate goal, a fish extender!!!! (I do plan on taking classes at my local Joanne Fabrics)
