Disney Tip Tuesday

I was searching online for some tips and found these great ideas that we might use next week! Today's tips: *Eat at a more expensive restaurant for lunch rather than dinner, as the menu choices are similar but the prices are lower - so you can experience the restaurant of your choice for less. *Take a digital photo of your locker number in case you lose your key. Also take a picture of your Photo Pass card in case you lose it then you can still see your pictures on it later. *Use your camera phone to take pictures of items you think you want. First, take a picture of the sign of the store where it is located. Then take pictures of the item and the tag of the item. Review nightly or at the end of your trip. Best of all, you can buy it from Disney Mail Order Merchandise when you're back home if you forget. *Trim the park maps from the PassPorter Walt Disney World guidebook and have them laminated in an 8x10 sheet. We then placed velcro dots on the map and the canopy of the stroller. The night before, my husband and I would circle the attractions we really wanted to get to, including Fastpass information, and write our Priority Seating number and any other info we might need during the day. *On the first morning of our trip, I excused myself from breakfast with my family at the All Star Sports food court to pick up two postcards from the shop in the lobby. I wrote notes to each of my kids with specific details from the night before at Epcot and signed a favorite character's name on each. It was fun to write in a style that I thought Dumbo or Stitch might use. I popped them in the mailbox and returned to breakfast. After we got home, my kids received their postcards and were amazed to not only get mail from Disney World, but to have the character know just what they did. It worked like a charm and made the magic continue even after we were home. ( that is so sweet!) *We are going to do some meals in the rooms this time, so I found this website that has super creative family night movie and meal ideas. Check them out here: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1707141 Some are overboard but you can pull what you like from them. You could also do these at home anytime or to prepare for an upcoming Disney trip. We plan to do the Lady and the Tramp night and Finding Nemo night. Check back Thursday for more Disney info! "Packing Process - Schuster Style" Have a magical day! Cindy
