Packing!   Well, let's see!   My husband will start to pack next saturday morning about 2 hours before we leave.  It will take him 30 minutes at the most.

I - on the other hand - have been making my list of things to bring with for the last 7 weeks.  

I also have a graph of the different days and the different events and parties we will be going to and what i want to wear and how to coordinate things with each other.

I will also pack my big Disney coffee mug for him and my BIG Costco cup to make my daily iced coffee in.   He laughs at me when i pack them..... but he sure is glad when i have them there for him to use!

I only bought ONE new shirt to wear!  (ok...and a new purse - but that was only 5 bucks! )

I am wondering if i should go ahead and get us 2 way radios since he doesnt use a cell phone.  Any opinions there?

About packing two-way radios:  Every family's mileage will vary on this, depends on how many in your family and their ages and how you divide up.  For our family of 3 it was cute to have the radio, for awhile.  Michael and I were on Tom Sawyer Island and Rich went to ride Big Thunder Mtn.  We chatted the whole time, including when Rich was on the ride!  Michael and I were in the Fort and I could see Rich as his train whizzed past us, that was kinda cool.  Michael, on the other hand, was too excited to be playing in a fort and didn't care about the radio.  Then Rich made his way over to us and we swapped and I rode Big Thunder and Rich babysat (Michael just didn't feel brave enough for that type of coaster).  We chatted back and forth all the time.  Now, others can hear you and you can hear others on some frequencies, so play around with the channels to get a bit more privacy and less interference.  Depending on how much anyone has to carry the radios can be helpful or extra weight to carry and extra personal items to take inventory of at all times.  They can be a blessing or a pain or a curse.  If you bring them do one novelty "Hey, I'm over here, can you hear me?  Yahoo this is fun!" interchange and then agree among yourselves when under what conditions to use them in the parks, and who will tote and take constant inventory so they are not left behind or lost.  Bring extra batteries from home, likely cheaper than replenishing at theme park prices, and agree upon who lugs the spare batteries around the parks. ;-)

I'm already all packed for my Disney Christmas trip! Actually I'm travelling light, as I intend to bring a whole wad of extra dough with me to blow on stuff to buy once I'm out there and am setting aside enough cash for one Disney Christmas character dinner and three more character meals throughout the rest of my stay. I intend to come home with at least a good sized handful of booty I've bought :coolgrin:
