To listen to the background music. I love having it streaming on my phone during work, but when I'm in the parks, I guess because it is designed to be in the background, I never hear it while I'm actually in the parks.

Had to chuckle at the over-packing posts - how you can buy almost anything you need anyway. Once when I arrived at WDW I realized I'd left all my undergarments in a hotel in another state. Those aren't something one can buy in the WDW bubble
Don't let your heart be filled with sorrow, for all you know, tomorrow, the dream that you wish will come true.

First, to go back through my luggage and take out half . . . maybe do that again! I think I need to join Over-packer Anonymous! Then, once I'm there and things are no longer going according to plan . . . to just go with it. Flexibility (even when you have worked so hard on plans for Disney) is really important, and can lead to magical moments.

I use a scooter and when I'm at Disney I find that I have to remind myself that assault and/or murder are not acceptable or legal responses to the never ending stream of oblivious bozos that pay no attention to who or what is around them and step and/or or stop right in front of me and the scooter I'm using.

Very similar to many above. I'm not an overpacker, but I am a fast walker, get to the next thing-er.

I need to remember that it's about the people I'm with. As the big Disney Addict in my family, I want people to get on MY trip, dang it! But this isn't the key to happiness. I need to remember to "go with the flow" and repeat the mantra "we have all the time in the World".
Themed environment junkie

Spend more time relaxing at the pool having boat drinks (a la Jimmy Buffett). Though once I get there, this is usually not a problem!
Margaret and I got to see the Cubs play in October. They won!

The one thing I tell people when they ask me about a WDW vacation is to have a good plan but don't over do it. I think people need a general plan of what rides and attraction they want to do/see in the parks and where to go first. I have seen plans where people have what they are going to do right down to the minute which is crazy. I also tell them don't expect to see and do everything on their first trip. Some people get so worked up trying to do it all it turns into work instead of vacation. It always nice to save some new things for future visits.
