1 Month to Go! Am I Forgetting Something?

1 month and 3 days, to be exact until we meet the Mouse and Mr. Potter. When I booked, I didn't realize our first full day at WDW would be Memorial Day. I was just looking to go right when school got out. Oh well. I'm just hoping with Toy Story Land opening on June 30, people will put off their vacation for a bit.
  • ADRs are made
  • Magic bands picked & personalized-just waiting on them to arrive in the mail
  • FPs picked
  • Everything is paid in full
Why do I feel like I'm forgetting something. Any suggestions on what should be done a month out?

I am in the same boat except I have 22 days left.

Last Sunday I picked out my clothes, just shorts and blouses. Not much else I can do. We leave May 17th.

And the waiting is going to drive me crazy! I can't really wash my pool towels...or pack more. This upcoming weekend I plan on my buying the sunscreen, going to the bank to break down my cash, and go sandal/sneaker shopping. Plus I need some body cream...

But that is it..... and the time is going to drag...........

Are you getting a rental or do you need a transfer service? Are you needing a grocery delivery? Other than those and just getting everything ready to pack it sounds like you're all set.

Do we need to bring pool towels if staying on WDW property?

I've got a box going of what will have to go in our backpack for touring the parks. But, the waiting is killing me too! Just so excited!

Disney bus from the airport. No groceries needed. Just raring to go, I guess!

I started giving my sons packing lists (which I keep on my computer) and let them pack for themselves, starting when they were teens, I guess. When youngish, I'd check to make sure they were bringing suitable clothing. You could do that.

(My sister sometimes packs for her husband on pleasure trips, even though he manages just fine on business trips. When she didn't pack for him once, they arrived for a wedding and he had forgotten his suit! They ended up having to buy a brand-new one on the spot, big bucks.)

Nope, pool towels are all provided!

I can understand your excitement, we are all in the same boat but some of us have a bit longer to wait at the moment!

Stop mail delivery. If using a non Disney credit card, contact the company so they have a record of you being out of your area.

No you donít need to bring them, Disney provides towels. But I have always brought my own. I like to lay on one.

I am right with you- I have nothing else to plan/schedule. My college son comes home on May 11th- thatís when I get to show him what we are doing!!! But up til then just biding my time- slow the time will go. lol
