    This is true. And she's lovely.

    So what you're saying is, we're going to have a laminating party before we go to WDW?

    I have a Mickey Mouse notebook( I buy one everytime we go) that I write everything down in...then the lists begin...and like Dorothy my lists begin to have lists. But somehow or another by the last 2 week count down everything is neatly filed in our Disney Travel file and ready to go.

    I do much the same as this.... but what staggers me is that I didn't have the internet, for planning and research, before our first ever trip so how on earth did we manage!! :lol:

    I just get a regular old notebook and start writing. The first page I always make something that looks like a calendar for each day of our stay. I make sure there is room in each box for ADRs, EMH days, any special parties, and which park we are going to that day. Then I add in any numbers I might need, things we don't want to miss, etc. and then take trip notes in the rest of the book :yes:

    We are simple folk :lol:

    To be honest, the notebook up until now was for organizing adrs and suitcases....I had 2 really fantastic TA's that did wonderful work for us...but this time they aren't allowed to help. We are staying in the campgrounds and travel agencies don't like booking for those. So long and short I'm a fish out of water this time, but I think I'm figuring it out lol.
