There are plenty of templates on here Kathy, you could just download one and change things around, it's fairly easy. You may have to download the fonts regardless wether you use Excel or Word!

AnnielovesDisney....Get a jump on the Disney scrapbook I love...now I will have to think about that...thanks so much. But am not handy with sewing and stuff. I can hem but that is it.

I can't sew anything. I can't even hem. But this is so incredibly easy, and pretty addicting once you learn how to do it.
All you need is any kind of fabric you like~cotton works best, fusible web(found at Joann's or Michael's), and a cut out of the shape or letters you want.
Trace the shape onto the fusible web and the fabric. Cut both out. Heat up your iron and iron them both together to fuse them(hence the name fusible web wink ) Lastly, iron the shape onto any shirt, bag, etc... that you want. It's truly that easy. Once you do it, you'll be looking for other things to make.

Well, you can always look for extra things to pack because you would rather have too much than too little in terms of packing essentials. I mean, really small physical things like extra bandages, extra first aid cream, extra Advil/Tylenol, extra Pepto Bismols/Tums, etc, basically any problem that can be treated easily with an over the counter medication. Prescribed medication, on a different note, make sure it's a newly refilled or you have enough medication to last the entire trip. The time between the I make the reservation official and the day I leave, that's what I normally do. Start making the packing list, checking to see if I have enough and some extra essentials and I buy if necessary.

Here's something I do that's fun for me while I wait ...

I start my "Disney Box" once my luggage tags and stuff starts arriving. While I'm out during the day, I might find a little travel sized version of the sunscreen I like, so I buy it, and it goes into the Disney box. If I find some Disney thank you cards at a dollar store or somewhere, I buy them for Mousekeeping tips and stick 'em in the Disney Box. If I buy a shirt for the trip, I don't wear it - Straight into the Disney Box!

Keeps me busy and looking forward to it daily!

PhillNYC that is such a great idea! I am totally stealing this from you. I had some Disney wrapping paper and a box so I decorated it and it is ready to go. awesome

Thanks, JHugo and Kathy! It's so much fun! Especially to duck into the travel size department of the drug store or and think, "oh yeah! I could use that!" I love filling my Disney box! I just added a new Hawaiian shirt today!

PhillNYC I have found a box that would work to hold all my trinkets for my upcoming Disney Trip and no am thinking of how I can make it unique so that anyone looking at it will say..hey are you going to Disney? silly

Well MrHub...I have done a spreadsheet and wow did that take me a while (and I know it isn't perfect ...not like yours) but I thought I would put it out here for you to look over. Again not really good with Excel at all. And for whatever reason I have this for landscape but it won't print on one page...arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. And I put the FP+ not that I can do them yet (9 more days to go) but I thought I would like them there. This is still very much a work in progress. But I would like any and all feedback...thanks.

Kathy, to get it to print on one page you need to adjust the page breaks. If you click on the "View" tab (assuming you have a more recent version of excel) and then click "Page Break Preview" you can see dotted lines showing you where it is cutting off the printing. Grab those dotted lines and slide them to the edges of your chart to include the entire thing on one page. I've saved a copy of your document with the page breaks updated so that it should print on one page for you now.

Thanks Amy for saying that but I know it is still a work in progress and I want to add a lot more to it as well but for now I'll wait until I see what I can truly get for our FP's as am 68 days out. Unless you are an excel guru I find excel very hard so for any of us who try (that is you and me yay ) we should both get an A. Of course if they know how many hours it has taking maybe I would get a D. laugh

Kathys like I said you have done much better than I did, I do happen to have a little knowledge of it from work but not loads so I tend to stick to the basics! once I find mine I will post it for you and it will make you feel a lot better about yours trust me!!!!

So jealous of your pictures and font!!!!

now the pictures and the font was the only thing I found easy. As I found that works the same way as a word document. The pictures just need to be someplace on your pc. I have a folder called pictures and I put all my Disney pictures in there so I can get one. I found that to work just like a word document. And as far as the font what I do is type what I want (don't care about the font) and once am done I select what I have typed and go to the font and select a new one. Am sure that isn't way it is suppose to be done but is how I do it. silly

I know about how much you would like to put on that as I have the same issue..so what it comes down (for me anyway) is what is really important to know. So that is what I will put on mine. Good luck but am sure you will do fine.

Well Amy1989 maybe the spreadsheet isn't the best thing. I used a word document that I would setup by day and list everything from what park, dinner reservations rides and etc. and any special things I must do. So if like you I can't put everything in the spreadsheet (as it would be way to big and to many pages) I will still use my word document where it list everything. So we shall see how that goes. Let me know what you end up doing. And again good luck.
