Two things, Beth. First, I finally decided to do something quite similar on my site. Although I do understand that some people get ticked off at sellers on Ebay who sell the park maps, I'm doing something else like it. I'm selling not only the park maps, but brochures from other Orlando attractions like Busch Gardens, SeaWorld, Arabian Nights, China, Pirates and Capone's, Kennedy Space Center, etc., as well as a Travel Activities Book for $10. The activities book is made from card stock, has a plastic binder with a clear plastic front and cardboard back. This works well for kids as it gives them something a little hard to lean on. The book contains losts of coloring pages, mazes, games, and car bingo! You could make this on your computer, too. It is great for keeping kids busy and the package is a big help to people who like to plan ahead as they all have maps and telephone numbers, and some have coupons. I'm also planning on adding a coupon booklet for the Orlando area....I just have to drive to a service plaza on the turnpike! There's one about 30 minutes from me. So, obviously, I have access to things a lot of people don't and would like to have. The $10 barely covers the cost of mailing envelope, postage and my gas! !
The second thing is this.... I like to realllllly decorate for Christmas and our house is basically *Disney*, so the foyer is dedicated to .....Disney! We have 3 small trees there with a 3 footer that has a Minnie tree topper. Here are my suggestions...1. use pins to decorate the small trees, and 2. if you've ever seen the headbands with the glitter Mickeyheads on them, they can also be used as ornaments, too! They work well for both the small trees and the big one, and are relatively inexpensive. They cost $6 and have 2 Mickeyheads on them. What I did was take them off the wire, add a bow on the bottom and glue a ribbon on the top between the ears with a glue gun...viola! Mickeyhead ornaments!
Oh! And for those that have done their bathrooms in Tropical Mickey, but don't want to spend $25 for the wastebasket(I can be cheap)...make your own! I paintd blue Mickeyheads on a white wastebasket and it looks great! I even added some flowers, too!
Sorry this is so long, guys....
