    I have 6 days till my next trip and I’m going to lose my mind soon if it doesn’t hurry up!! how do you guys get ready for a trip? i’ve made all my plans, packing lists, etc. all i have left to do is actually pack… what do you guys do to keep yourself from going crazy and to pass the time?

    It’s so hard to wait when it’s that close! Try watching Disney movies, making lists of what foods you want to try, reading some trip reports to see what others do and maybe even get some fresh ideas of things to do that you may not have thought of, play the “next week at this time I’ll be….” game…..that’s one we, well I, love to do! My wife tolerates it, daughter loves it! LOL

    Next Week This Time is the best!!!! It’s so much fun!!!!! Just talking about the trip, including on here, makes the wait more bearable (depending on who you talk to :stitch: )

    I listen to more Disney music, watch YouTube videos to see what’s new, go through old photos and videos I took on past trips, and watch ride through videos of some of my favorites :)

    ooooh good one with the “next week at this time!” i just need to find someone who wants to listen to me LOL

    i’ve been listening to disney music like there’s no tomorrow haha! that’s also a good idea with the food list, i’ll watch some DFB videos and start compiling one.

    @starbee i tried making my friend who’s coming with me watch ride videos a while ago and she wasn’t into it, guess i’ll have to do that on my own LOL

    We have a hard copy countdown which we flip a page of every morning. We kind of take our time packing over the course of the week before. Once a date has been set, I sometimes have a Disney movie marathon of some type, watching one movie a day. I put together or edit a Disney music playlist. The D-COT Jukebox is being played as often as we can. My wife likes to look at our ADR menus and pick what she thinks she’ll want ahead of time. I mean, “Getting there is half the fun, Russ!” ;)

    it’s true though, getting there really is half the fun LOL that’s a good idea to make a playlist, i could listen to it on the plane. i’ve been bad about packing, i’ve been putting it off, i really need to get a jump on it though haha
