    Re: I'm Going to Disney World in August - and I'm so excited!!!!

    I have just enough time to save my actual spending money. Glad that the rest of the trip is entirely paid for. Disney sure does know how to think up many different ways to coax us from our money.

    My trip is exactly six weeks away. Time sure is dragging.

    I am now 39 days away from my trip. I guess my Magic Band will be arriving pretty soon.

    Re: I'm Going to Disney World in August - and I'm so excited!!!!

    My trip is just 5 weeks away.

    I read about the monorail at Disney World getting struck by lightning, and how people had to be evacuated. A bit scary. I can't imagine climbing out of a monorail. Or being stuck in a hot one once the airconditioning shuts down. That part is a bit scary as well.

    We have had a lot of rain, here in Chicago lately, and it just reminds me not to forget to pack some kind of rain gear for my trip. I am used to traveling to California, where it is sunny, almost all the time. On past, WDW vacations, we would joke about how we could set our watches by the afternoon showers.

    35 days left to wait.

    Yeah it rains daily somewhere between 3 to 5. Weird but cool.

    Re: I'm Going to Disney World in August - and I'm so excited!!!!

    I remember the years, 2003, 04, and 05. I went to Disney World with my grandson and his mom, three years in a row. We had so much fun, and the running jokes were about the rain, and about how tired our feet always were. Our saying was, "My feet hurt, I must be in Disney".

    I know people cringe when you just call it "Disney".. However, I remember back then, how that was the norm. I didn't even visit Disneyland until the Summer of '05 for the first time.

    My trip is just 32 days away.

    Too far out to start checking the weather. I hope the rain is kept to a minimum.

    I did a holiday trip in 2007, and really enjoyed myself. The decorations were great. Hard to believe that that was 7 years ago.

    Re: I'm Going to Disney World in August - and I'm so excited!!!!

    I received my WDTC booklet, and luggage tags today in the mail. My grandson brought in the mail, and when the larger envelope had a return address from New Jersey, I wasn't quite sure what was inside. I guess Dreams Unlimited is located in New Jersey. I used them, before several times, just never noticed that they were located in New Jersey.

    So, I guess my Magic Band arrives separately. I read that somewhere, I am sure.

    I am using Magical Express to get from the airport to Pop Century, but not to return to the airport, since my last two nights are at Bonnet Creek.

    Now I am definitely super excited. The luggage tags are cute. They have Mickey on them. I won't use the yellow tags, because I plan to carry my own suitcase, the way I always do when I travel. However, I can use the Mickey ones.

    Re: I'm Going to Disney World in August - and I'm so excited!!!!

    Today I received an e-mail saying that my Magic Band has shipped. Wonder what happens if it gets lost in the mail? I suppose I'd end up with the lovely color gray when I arrived.

    I have done online check in. I have my documents from the WDTC. I am about to take possession of my Magic Band. The only thing left to do is wait, and then pack, and then wait some more.

    Just four weeks until my trip.

    I downloaded a map of the Magic Kingdom, and I am going to study it, to familiarize myself with where everything is. There are certain things that I want to accomplish on each of my visits there. I plan on spending more time in the Magic Kingdom than in the other parks. Although, I do plan on visiting all the parks at some time during my trip.

    Try the mac and cheese hot dog at restaurantosaurus at Animal Kingdom. It was delicious.

    I rarely eat lunch at Animal Kingdom. The reason being that I eat breakfast at The Rainforest. I have my ADR all made for 9:30 a.m.. I never get hungry until dinner time, after a substantial breakfast at Rainforest.

    I remember the year that we saw Donald at Restaurantosaurus. I guess they changed that character meal location, back into a counter service restaurant.
