Just for fun!

What kind of fun things do you do in the months leading up to your trip? We have done a lot of different stuff, from designing and making T-shirtís to having a weekly themed Disney dinner and movie night, but now that my kids are older (19, 16 and 14) , itís a bit more challenging to keep that magic going. Iíve always felt that the planning was half the fun, though, and now that everything is digital, we donít even make a planning ďbinderĒ anymore. Iíd love to hear your ideas and what you have done in the past that you liked!

Mostly just listening to Disney music and watching Disney movies.

You can actually find soundtracks to a bunch of the rides!

We do a Disney movie countdown. We usually choose a series or two and watch them in sequence.

We have also done a 10 day countdown with different activities each night.

Day 10- start planning a Disney dinner party
9-Make a MK schedule
8-Make a list of people you want to send postcards to
7-Epcot schedule
6-Make and/or wear Mouse ears
5-DHS schedule and start packing
4-Watch your fav Disney movie with popcorn
3-AK schedule
2-Host your Disney dinner party
1-Go to bed early and dream of Disney

This schedule actually came from the official WDW guidebook for kids, and we have adapted it over the years, but it’s a fun place to begin.

Watch YouTube videos, go over my spreadsheets again and again, talk about what we want to do, talk about the restaurants we'll eat in.
