I hope you have GREAT weather!!! Give Mickey a hug!!!
Dd and I just came back from a shopping trip at Old Navy. We both needed tops that are tanks or straps so we don't melt too badly in the Florida August sun. Got 3 tops for her and 4 for me (and 2 pair of boxers for ds) for $65 after the $30 off coupon we earned earlier in the summer when I went shopping for much needed shorts and T-shirts.
tomorrow I am going to the bank with our collected change to see how much we saved that is our current excitement! we leave in 20 days!
YAY!! We're doing that one day next week
Tell me again-- where are you staying? (No reason, just curious.)
We leave in 12 days!!!
We just had a massive Pin Trade, with the 3 kids taking turns choosing from the 38 pins we have. (I ended up with the last 2).
Suitcases are airing out. The kids are starting to think about carryons and park bags.
It's getting close!!
LOVE beach club....I think its my favorite! I'm jealous!

we are staying at the Art of Animation in a Nemo room!! they are so excited!! we are doing pin stuff here too. For every good deed that I see, I give them a new pin, and they declare it good or trader. so far they are pretty happy with all the pins. I bought a couple of lots of mixed pins from Ebay and a couple of lots of specific sets of pins ( Tinkerbell, http://www.disneystore.com/pins-pin...-and-friends-pin-set-7-pc/mp/1298063/1000211/ those, and some 2012 dated pins)
It is so cute to see how excited they all are. Today in the rain, i want to go to the Disney store to buy them matching shirts for the first day there. It is Hailey's 1/2 birthday so that is as good of an excuse as any other for shopping!

I swear, the anticipation is almost as much fun as the trip itself!!
AOA looks fabulous!!!
Tomorrow I can do online checkin at the Beach Club!!!!
Something else just occurred to me, after re-reading this entire thread.
THose of you who haven't been to WDW before and are planning a trip, go to the library and check out a copy of the Passporter Guide http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/pas...ld-jennifer-marx/1102043442?ean=9781587711039 It doesn't matter which year you get.
The park maps in that book are the BEST!!! Hit Staples and use their color copiers to copy a map or two to each park. The Passporter maps include the restaurants, the bathrooms, everything!!
Last summer, the Passporter site put the 2010 editions on sale for $1. So I ordered 3 to use when friends ask me about Disney. (At work, I'm one of the 2 gurus.) I'm planning to take the maps out of one of my copies.
Realize, though, that Fantasyland is currently under construction, so that part of the map will be touch and go.
Look what I found you:
Alice...we just started planning our trip to Disney for June 2013, thank you so much for all the information! I haven't booked yet as I've signed up for all the websites you mentioned and ordered the DVD...hoping to get some discounts first.
That's an excellent idea. I work part time at Disney and one of the things they teach us is to ask a lost child if they have a phone number to reach someone they are traveling with.
Great idea about the contact info. My girls share a phone so I'll get them something just in case.
