    Tatiana from IL Asked

    hi panel, we have 14days and counting i was just wondering if there is anything i should be doing or aware of at this stage in the planning. I am so excited and i cant wait.

    Hi, Tatiana!

    You must be so excited for your upcoming vacation!  Here is what you should be doing:

    -If you haven't already, make sure you have booked Disney's Magical Express for your free airport transportation to and from the Orlando airport.  If you need to add this, call (407)W-DISNEY.  If you are all set, you should have received your yellow luggage tags.  Affix these to any luggage you plan to check at your home airport.

    -Do you have all your Advance Dining Reservations made?  If so, make sure you have all your reservation numbers and times and dates so you are all set for your meals.  I like to have 2 copies in case I misplace one.

    -When you hit your 10 day window from your vacation, you can do your Online Check-in to save time when you arrive at your resort.

    -Pack a bunch of items from home to save some money when you get to WDW:  rain ponchos, autograph books, pens, sunglasses, hats/visors, misting/spray bottles, and plenty of sunscreen.

    -Start packing!  Lots of lightweight clothing, swim suits, and an extra pair of shoes.

    -Gather any travel documents, tickets, reservation numbers, ID's, or whatever you might need.  Do this ahead of time to avoid the last minute rush.

    Other than that, sit back, relax, and get ready for some wonderful magic and pixie dust!  Have a great vacation.
