    5 Month Pre-Trip Report

    So today marks exactly 5 months until the next WDW trip and I was thinking... what else can I do now to prepare and feel like the trip isn't that far away?

    Reservations for Preferred Room at ASMo - check
    ADRs for the Crystal Palace, Chef Mickeys, Garden Gril and Hollywood & Vine - check
    3 Day Passes Purchased - check
    Dining Plan added to Reservation - check

    Anyone have any ideas for what I can spend the next 5 months doing to stay in the Disney spirit?

    Get a sweatshirt or top onto which you can embroider a cross-stitch Disney design. ???
    Work on an autograph book for your daughter to use.
    Get a countdown calendar (like the kind they sell in stores at Christmas to count down the days to Christmas - not just Advent.) I have a Disney one. It has wooden blocks and you change the blocks to countdown the days.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?

    Order the big, beautiful park maps and plan you must do's. Start shopping for Sunday morning trinkets to give kid (s) to get them excited, buy extras for special gifts while on resort. Make a 3x5 size notebook, for magical moments and highlights.Double check cameras, film, batteries in same. Lay out some preliminaryscrapbook pages. Do a design your own pirate princess shirt. Read the menu for the foodcourt at you hotel for all meals and plan where to go to eat if you do not want what is on the menu. Learn to do the Mickey logo in your nailpolish and keep changing the colors (my DD loves this). Learn the words to most of the major attraction songs if you don't already know them. Start hitting clearance racks for seasonally appropriate clothing in the right sizes. Our Target has tanks for $1.25 right now. Dream, dream, dream of being back on property,

    You can order them from Disney's site. Custom maps with your favorites etc. marked on 'em. We've already got quite a few. LOL!
