    I am tooo excited!!!! Going to WDW on 5/23-6/2 and I had done everything, planned the days, dining, mousekeeping envelopes and everything... what else can I do to calm myself down?? lol..

    Hi, Maimunah!    It really is exciting when your trip approaches!    Here are some things to keep you busy . . .

    -Go to a local "dollar store" or discount store and pick-up some rain ponchos.  Pack them in your bag that you plan to bring to the park.   This will save you a lot of time and money if some rain starts falling!

    -Make sure  you have packed:  camera, sunscreen, wet wipes, hand sanitizer, and hat.  

    -Toss some extra pens in your bag.  Always good to have extras for autographs, signing receipts, and who knows what else!  

    -Google "wdw countdown clock."  You'll find several sites that will have some fun ways to count down your days!

    -Make copies of your daily itineraries for each member of your travel party so they know what to expect (and if you misplace your copy,  you will have a back-up!)

    -Make copies or a list of credit cards/ID's you will carry with you, and put in a secure spot in your HOME.  In the unlikely event that you lose your wallet, you will have an inventory of everything you lost.

    -Visit for updates on park rehabs, and all the latest happenings at WDW!

    -Keep reading the questions and answers at!    New questions with answers are posted all the time, so keep up with the latest!

    Wishing you a magical trip to WDW!    Have a super time - it will be here SOON!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
