Final Disney Countdown!

Our trip to Disney World is just around the corner and as such we are in serious countdown mode! We're still using this countdown I made, but I decided to create something fun for our final countdown...

I made 35 little envelopes and put a note inside each one. (The envelopes were made with basic cardstock folded in half and stapled on either side. I added a little Disney-themed washi tape to the outside and numbered each one.) Each day, James will find the envelope that coordinates with the number on our other countdown and remove the note inside of it.

The notes indicate various activities- here are a few examples:
:: Dance around to "I Wanna Be Like You" from the Jungle Book
:: Only 3 more weeks until we leave for Disney World! Have fun looking through our Mickey Mouse mini unit!
:: The Tramp takes Lady to dinner one night... what do they eat? Have that for dinner tonight!
:: Is the shoe a perfect fit? Pretend you're Cinderella and try on Mom and Dad's shoes!
:: It's your un-birthday today! Enjoy a cup of tea just like Alice!
:: Merida is from Scotland - find her country on a map and then read the story on our iPad!
:: Today's the day!! We're off to Disney World! Put on your new Mickey Mouse shirt and LET'S GO!!

There are sooo many ways to create a Disney countdown. Pinterest is full of inspiring ideas! One way that I was really considering is the simple paper chain. It brings back all sorts of good memories from my primary school days, but in the end I decided against it. The chain is something we already do during the Christmas season, and I want to keep that separate and special.

What kind of countdown do all of you Disney goers create?

~Thank you for your comments!~
