Planning a Disney Trip? Countdown to the FUN!


How many days do you have until you leave for your Disney vacation?  Do you even know?  If you are getting close, why not make it fun and start a Disney Vacation Countdown!?!

Several months ago, Melissa shared how to make a great Do It Yourself Countdown Calendar.  In addition to your own calendar, there are lots of other fun ways to count down to your vacation.

1. Visit the Disney web site and download the Disney Vacation Connection for your computer.
2. Do a search for desktop countdown calendars for your computer.
3. Download an app for counting down the days on your smart phone.
4. Make your own construction paper chain link to countdown the days.
5. Starting 6 weeks out, choose 1 Disney movie a week to watch as a family and make themed snacks to enjoy with the film!
6. Make a playlist with 25 Disney songs.  Each day on the way to school, while eating breakfast, getting ready for bed, etc., play one song to countdown the number of days left until the trip.
7. Go to the Dollar Stores and buy cheap Disney treats.  Wrap them up and give each family member one treat a day for a certain amount of days leading up to the trip.

What other ideas do you have for making the Countdown to Disney FUN?

  1. I’ve got the phone app going right now…88 days. At 30 days, I’ll make a countdown for our family, using the Mickey shaped paint samples from HD. I always add some fun Disney facts to unveil each day leading up to the trip.

  2. Just wanted to let you know that I downloaded the Disney Vacation Connection application and after it was installed it told me that the application is no longer being maintained and gave me instructions to uninstall. 🙁
