For traveling out of Canada I have been using Roam Mobility which uses T-Mobile for service.  Their rates have been far cheaper than my Koodo carrier in the US and includes unlimited data.  For short travels it's $5 a day.  They have packages too for longer periods.
It's close to the Fair time but Amazon Prime does carry the SIM cards.   
If you don't have a Prime account and live in Canada, I can sent it to you through my account. 

For those who don't live in Canada....
You can sign up to the US Amazon Prime site for a free trial of their service and have the SIM card delivered to an Amazon locker. There are some all along International Drive near the hotel.

Edited because I forgot to note that you need an unlocked phone to use their service.

Hope that helps.

I thankfully ordered an American SIM card recently just in case I needed to call home in emergency situations and in the event that Disney World's wifi wasn't reliable for the 7 days I'm there after the fair. I definitely wasn't expecting to need it at the fair so I'm so glad I was overly cautious and ordered one as finding out yesterday was too late to do anything about it now.

For all the other international travellers, I found T-mobile's "traveller package" to be the best value. It's $30, lasts for three weeks and has 2 G of data. The downside is that they don't ship out of the country so you'll need it sent to someone else attending the fair or the hotel. On top of that, they only accept US credit cards so someone else will have to purchase it for you. You know, because it makes so much sense to have a plan specifically for non-US residents but makes it impossible to purchased independently. Being almost a week away from the fair, your best bet is to get someone to buy it in store and bring it with them to hand over when you arrive.

I had an intimidating to-do list, but now I think I will finish the important stuff at the very least, and maybe a few extra things. Gotta start on my art for the contest, though (customs and handicraft are done). Got a few things left to do with my cosplay, but they aren't necessities -- the main parts are done, save for the purse. And I need to finish my wolf plushie's Spike cosplay. Otherwise, just have some jewellery left to make. All the booth display stuff is done. And while I'm typing here, I've been printing out colouring pages that people can design ponysonas with on their own, or I can use as a guide for the sketches I will be doing. :) I'm printing out 75 pages, figuring on keeping 25 for my use and putting the rest out on the table for people to take -- but is that enough, or is it too much? LOL

oh man, too much to do and too little time. I've never run this far behind before....but there's been a lot going on in non-pony life :p
both of my cosplay are almost done and just need 2 more things created for them...
my hasbro customs and handicraft are done
but I need to do my artwork and finish my original custom
I have some ponies to clean and price still (thankfully not a lot to clean)
paperwork stuff too, including finding my ledger and printing my wishlist

I finally decided to start cleaning and pricing today...heh... Good thing I'm only on a small part of a table with Whiskerz85 who was so kind (again) to let me share a space.  I don't know how you guys go through all of these accessories.  I never knew there were so many versions of pink and blue for some of these combs/brushes/etc.  My labels on some of my combs and whatnot are literally "Medium Blue??? brush that came with 'Bonnie Bonnets'...maybe???"  LoL  My head hurts :)

We're so close!

One week left!!!

I’ve finished my custom and my artwork for the contest, and that’s literally all I’ve done so far. Roomy and I are selling at a local toy show this weekend, so I’ve been getting ready for that instead. Good thing I’m on vacation next week!

Life has been a bit wild in the last couple of years, and I haven't posted in a whole year.  But for the very first time... I'll be at the fair!  We moved to Florida and it's only a 3 hour drive for us!  I'll have my fiancé and 1 ½ year old in tow and I'm excited to finally make it!

So ummm... hi!  I still exist!  XD

I hit the road at 10am tomorrow! So excited but I still haven't gotten all my songs that I wanna listen to on my ipod and still need to pack. I'm a procrastination princess.

The fair is so close !!!
