Phew!! That's a lot of things!!  During check in all cast members need to meet the requirements for business attire.  I'm pretty sure that we can check in and get that all done, then change to move in all of our things, but I guess we will see haha.  I had to go shopping for some new clothing items for more "business" appropriate wear, but the guidelines actually are a lot like Big 5 Sporting goods are haha.  So that works for me!!  To add to my list of things to bring to disney I'm putting down my iron as well haha.   Well everyone have a magic day and be sure to check out my other blog cause I updated it as well today.

Just so you know, you don't have to be in business wear for check in. You have to meet Disney look during check in with your hair, make up, jewelry, etc, but you're able to wear jeans or shorts & tshirts for check in.
