Creating Magic

While still in the beginning stages of planning our family vacation, I discovered there are quite a few useful resources that will be of great assistance. So far my favorites are:

With all of this wonderful advice, I decided to start a Vacation Planner binder. I designed my binder on Zazzle.com using our monogram. Zazzle offers a wide variety of Disney designs, but since Walt Disney World will not be our only vacation destination, I customized a binder to match my home binder.

I created dividers using Avery Index Maker White Dividers with the following categories:

  1. General Information
  2. Budget
  3. Packing List
  4. Resort/Hotel
  5. Dining
  6. Magic Kingdom
  7. Epcot
  8. Hollywood Studios
  9. Animal Kingdom
  10. Downtown Disney

I know it’s a lot, but with 40-square miles of property I don’t want to miss any of the magic!

214 Days to Disney

On Day 6,429 in the Life, we received a little package in the mail.

Incredible

Oooh, a surprise.

We thought it was the informational DVD of Walt Disney World, but no. It was something quite unexpected. Instead of just sending a confirmation email, Walt Disney World sent this nice, little box as our reservation confirmation. Continue reading

It’s the Magic Countdown!

{Now I have Europe stuck in my head.}

It’s official. We booked our Walt Disney World vacation for later this year. The magic begins in 221 days. Let the planning commence! {And my goodness are there a lot of resources for planning and preparation.}

See you on Day 6,644, Walt and Mickey!

One Step Closer

On Day 6,415 in the Life we became one step closer to having at least one room completed in our little Home Sweet Home on Sims Mill Pond. The handy hubby installed the bathroom cabinet {which we will paint to match the kitchen cabinets}, counter-top and shelves. It only took three tries to find a faucet that didn’t leak. We’ve never been so excited to brush our teeth. {Even the kiddo is excited.} And I can see the top of my head in the mirror again.
