2 questions Im going to pack in one thread

#1

Ok. I have 2 questions that I will pack into this…

#1) Does anyone know if there is a place besides Ebay that I could get a WDW mist water bottle before my trip? I have been looking on Ebay and havent seen anything…

#2) If I bought a SWA ticketless travel voucher off of Ebay is there any way I can check to see if its good before I pay for it? Does anyone have any ticketless travel funds that they want to sell??

#2

I can’t help with the WDW spray bottles, I’ve only seen them at WDW. I have seen non-DIsney mist bottles at WalMart and other places.

I wouldn’t feel safe buying ticketless travel funds, I can’t imagine a way to see if they’re good until you try to use them. I think you would have to have their SWA info. My friend and I have talked about using each others credit if we needed to but we’ve haven’t needed to yet.

#3

I dont feel safe doing the voucher thing on Ebay as well… I just looked and people were spending $350 for a $360 voucher… To me $10 wont make or break me so I rather feel safe and get them directly from SWA

#4

I totally agree with DT.

I personally would save a TON of money and buy the bottles at Walmart and put Disney stickers on them. A fun project for your kids and way cheaper.

I would not feel comfortable buying anything like that on Ebay.

#5

I agree, it’s not worth the risk.

#6

I have bought the walmart mist bottles in the past and they broke before even getting on Dtransportation on the 1st day. At least if my WDW one breaks I can always exchange it for another…

#7

Will your kids carry a bottle around all day? Since we quit taking a stroller we quit taking a mister bottle because I know my son and he wouldn’t carry it for 10 minutes after we got to the park.

#8

My Dh asked me the same question. I know one will… I was thinking I know I bought a few last trip so Im about to take a ride over to my moms and see if its in her basement.

#9

The spray water bottles sound like a really good idea, my kids bugged me for them when we were there last time. What happens to mom…she carries 3 fanny packs and 3 drinking water bottles and 2 spray water bottles. Just call mom the pack mule.

#10

That’s why we quit taking the spray bottle. We buy water when someone needs a drink and my son doesn’t take anything to the parks. I take a backpack but it’s pretty light and it’s stuff we all use.

My son does like to press pennies so I keep a mini M&M tube in the backpack stocked with quarters and pennies in layers and his autograph book but that’s about all my son needs.

#11

The m&m tube is an AWESOME idea. I will have to use that one on the next trip.

#12

You do have a point there. I guess the heat wont be that bad in Sept. Once my daughter took 3 of her American Girl dolls to the mall and I told her to leave them in the car but she wanted to bring them so I told her that I wasnt going to take care of them so when we were shopping she decided that she doesnt want to carry them and she left them there:eek: So thankfully they were still sitting where she left them so I swore never again…

#13

I layer it with two quarters and a new penny until I get enough in the tube. Try to get the smallest tube you can find. I made the mistake of filling hte tube to the top the first time I did it and let me tell you–it was heavy! I now pack 2 full tubes to leave in the room and a half full tube to take to the parks. I refill it as needed so we aren’t taking too many to the parks each day.

Another tip–I printed this list, shrunk it to 1/4 size and stapled the pages together and stuck it in the backpack so we know what we have and what we need. I went through all the pressed coins my son had one winter day last year that way I knew exactly what he already had. Now I check off his coins as he’s pressing them–it’s quick and easy.

Thats so cool. My nephew ike to collect coins. I will have to see what he has so I can collect some more for him thi time around.

#15

Are you sure it won’t be hot in Sept.? My dd and dsil went in Sept. in 1999 or 2000 and said it was like walking around in a oven. Mid to high 90’s everyday. Unless that was a fluke, I’d guess it can be very hot in Sept.

#16

:eek: I need to go find my mist fan

#17

You better, September is still HOT! My best friend went to WDW last October for Food and Wine and siad it felt as hot as July.

#18

Could there be a possibility of it being chilly. I want to start shopping clearance racks for spring clothes and need to know what to get. I like to get clothes out of season for the trip. Last week I went to Disney Store and got my DD 2 disney tank tops for .74 a piece.

#19

The parks seem to have more and more of the “mist” water areas! So you can always go by one of them if you want a little mist or two!

We have the WDW water bottle we bought it when we went 4th of July out of desperation (NEVER AGAIN will I go 4th of July!!!:ohmy: :blink: ) cuz we were so HOT!!

Truthfully, altho a great concept . . . it is super heavy when full of water . . . and I’ve seen plenty of people walk up to the tank that holds them for sale mist/breeze put down and walk away!! At $12/piece . . . expensive! And that same day we went through 3 of them cuz they kept breaking! True they replaced them no problem . . . but what a hassle! :blink:

#20

Yes, September is still VERY HOT . . . it doesn’t start to “cool” until around Halloween . . . and even then it can still be 90 degrees!

Tomorrow is only going to be a high of 69 here in SoFlo . . . I hear NY is going to get 10" of snow . . . brrrrrrrrrrr!
