    Hi Moms!! 5 more days!! I'm so excited I can't stand it!!! I have all ADR's made, garden grocer ordered and ready. DH and DD 5 are SO excited, we have a countdown chain in place :-) Any last minute advice you can give would be great! Thanks!!! Yay WDW!!!

    Hi, Lisa!  It's so exciting to be this close to the Magic!  

    Here's what I do in my last couple of days.  I go over the list of things I'm packing, so I can hit the store for anything I need.  Don't forget sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses, even for the littlest ones.  Get your camera ready, checking batteries and making sure you have chargers.  

    I always have a list of my dining reservations to take with me, so whether you add them to your smartphone or write them out old school on a piece of paper,  you may want to bring those with you.  I do the same with any other special appointments we have, like for the spa or specialty cruises.

    Double check that all the things you wanted to make sure you did, you've done.  If you meant to add the dining plan or theme park passes to a room only reservation, make sure you took care of that.  If you had wanted to put in a room location request, now's a good time to do that as well.

    If you bought new shoes, break them in!  Pack your ponchos in case you hit wet weather - or wet attractions.  We always bring shoes for the pool in addition to regular shoes.

    If you're flying, check that everyone that needs it has their photo ID.  Download the My Disney Experience on your smartphone.  

    And just prepare to have fun!
