    I was just wondering what if any preperations you all make before going to Disney? I mean do you lose weight, buy new clothes, buy certain creams for the plane journey or anything?

    None of those, really. I normally obsess over things like "did I pack the APs? Did I pack all our meds? Will they find our reservations when we get there? Did I pack our itinerary with all our confirmation #s? Where are all the battery chargers?" I will check and recheck. Then I'll repeat the whole exercise when we leave for home...

    I always have a pedicure the day before we fly :lol:
    Always have some new clothes but, to be honest, a lot of the clothes we wear in Florida, we wouldn't wear in the UK so some clothes see WDW just as much as we do ourselves!

    Lists. And more lists. And a master list divided into sublists. A packing list and things get ticked off as they are packed. But then if you unpack something it has to go back on the list and be re-ticked as they are repacked.

    And I guarantee you I am not the only one here that does this. :wink:

    Oh, I wear my Mickey t/shirts at home on a weekend :lol:
    The clothes I don't wear at home are shorts and cami tops etc....don't get the weather for them too often in the UK and there is no way I would walk down our street in shorts anyway. I suppose it comes down to vanity - I don't know anyone in Florida!:unsure:
