Have you downloaded Disney's Vacation Connection Desktop Widget yet? We have! While widgets typically take up a small portion in the upper right hand corner of your computer screen, this widget is extra large. I was worried at first about the space, but it is easy to close the lid on the widget to make it smaller or close it all together and re-open when you want.
You can personalize the widget with a trip countdown and name of the trip. Our countdown is the number of days until our 7th magical visit.
You can also personalize your packing checklist under the "My Destination" tab. Pre-loaded items in the checklist include things like "check in on-line 10 days prior to arrival" and "pre-order your photopass CD." (Click here to read more about Disney Photopass service.) The neat thing about these pre-loaded items on the check-list is that they include a link right to the web-site to take handle those tasks. No more searching for the on-line check in web-site! We have added items to the checklist such as "call Carole to take care of the pets" and "pack matching shirts." You get the idea. And, you can print the check list.
Want to know how late Hollywood Studios is open on Halloween? Check the "Events" tab and click on Park Hours. Voila! You have the answer to your question via the Desktop Widget.
