Eeek, it’s almost time for MouseFest! And unlike last year, I’m actually going!
I read the newspaper every morning, and am deeply aware of how fortunate I am to be going on vacation, given the dire straights this economy’s created for many of us. High unemployment rate, anyone?
As many of us pack our bags for MouseFest, we might want to throw in a few items that help save money here and there. So, this week’s Jentasmic! column over at StudiosCentral.com has excerpts from this budget-conscious Disney freak’s packing list, including one that’s not only budget-friendly, it’s also green!
Water bottle. Yes, all those sodas and bottles of water really do add up when I’m walking around the parks. When I don’t bring a water bottle, I tell myself I’ll just use the drinking fountains…but then I don’t, for reasons I’ll explain below. Plus, these days I always bring a water bottle whenever I fly, to stay hydrated and avoid shelling out the bucks that the airlines might just charge me for those formerly-complimentary in-flight beverages.
And hey, if you’re gonna be at MouseFest don’t forget to check out the list of meets hosted by Those Darn Cats, the podcast I co-host with my BFF Lisa. We are proud to be Underwriting Sponsors of MouseFest 2008! In addition to the three meets we’re hosting, you’ll also find us at the MegaMouseMeet, and MouseFest 101, and the big kickoff reception, and the All About the Mouse Jellyrolls singalong Meet…and, well, all over the place I’m sure! Ye shall know her by her fabulous and rapidly-changing t-shirts, and, well, you can figure out who I am because I look remarkably like the picture on my profile page, though I’m not always smiling that sweetly.
