Going back to WDW for Liam's 9th Birthday! 5/29-6/3 WE ARE BACK!!!
I am so happy to announce
We are going back to Walt Disney World for Liam's 9th Birthday
I have made reservations, so now it is time to plan:banana::banana::banana:
It all started about a week ago.
I was going through movies on Netflix and found on Walt Disney World.
I started feeling nastolgic over the Wish trip the family took in September of 2009.
This got me thinking.
I have four kids and right now there is just no way the budget can afford everyone to go.
That's when I got the idea that I would take each child seperatly for a special birthday gift.
Liam is the oldest and turning 9 this year so now I had decide if I could swing it this year
or had to wait until next.
Fate must have been smiling on me because the Kids play for free program was the deciding factor.
We will be staying at the All-Star Sports from May 29th-June 3.
I chose the Quick-Service plan because I don't think Liam will like all the waiting for sit down resteraunts.
I didn't even relize that May 30 is Memorial day until after I booked.
Hopefully it wont be to crazy.:confused3
So far not to many plans.
Just bought a book to see what was new this year.
I also hit the Disney store yesterday and found a buzz lightyear suitcase,
a mickey mouse shirt,
and a Phinias and Ferb shirt for under $17 dollars.
I am planning give these to Liam for his birthday.
I have already talked with Liam about the trip,
but was thinking about staying quite about it until his birthday.
I hope to make it a big surprise for his birthday but I don't know if this is going to work.:confused3
What is thekids play free ?
So today I had one of those rare (OK I admite not so rare:rotfl2:) moments
where I let the excitment of going back to Walt Disney World get the better of me.
I went to Border's yesterday and in my excitement bought a book for Disney World.
I brought it home and started reading it.
Than this morning I checked on my order for Amazon.com
and relized that I had already ordered the book that I just bought.:lmao::rotfl::rotfl2:
At least the let me return it back to the store.:thumbsup2
so excited to read all about your trip
Here is our Cast of Characters:
First there is me.
My name is Corrine and I am the mom.
I am totally addicted to WDW
even though this will only be my second trip their!
Next is Liam.
It is for his birthday that we are going to Walt Disney World.
(Our at least that is what I keep telling him.)
He will turn 9 right before our trip.
Will still be in school so waiting for weekend for trip.
Than there is Mia
The only girl of the bunch
She will not be going this time
But we are already talking about a 8th birthday celebration in 2013
To see the Fantasyland expansion.
Next is Aidan
He will be four in June
He will not be coming either this time
But is anxiously waiting for his trip to come
Last but not least is Rylan.
His birthday is in just under a month
Funny is that he was with us during our last trip to WDW
Just didn't know it yet
We have only been to WDW once before
that was for Liam's Wish Trip and we are excited to be able to enjoy the park on all 6 days
(at least that's the plan.)
Liam has Cystic Fibrosis and because of that there are alot of things to juggle.
I will be renting a stroller or wheelchair for him if I can't find someone to borrow them from around here.
Unfortunalty the stollers I own will not work for him.:guilty:
Last but not least, I made ressies.
I thought that the 50's Prime Time Cafe would be great for Liam's birthday lunch on May 31st at 1:10
I thought he would get a kick out of it
and the person who helped us with our reservation told me to make sure they knew it was for his birthday.
Loving the plans!!!
So here I am at Liam doctors office. Liam is participating in a study drug and needs to see the doctor every 8 weeks. Have been here since 9am and will not be able to leave till about 3pm. :scared1: Oh well at least they feed him McDonalds for lunch (and believe me he is hungry because he can't eat in the morning) and they are letting me long into there internet access. Liam's favorite part is that he doesn't have to do his morning treatments today. :hippie:
I am waiting for my tax check to clear the bank so that I can finish paying of Disney and preorder the photopass. I will feel a lot better when it is all taken care of. We have also made a plan for the parks with the things we definatly must do, things we want to do, and things to do if there is time.:woohoo:
Got a little scared because I got an email from the airline telling me that one of the departure times had changed. I had purposely chosen our arrival day for a morning flight and our departure day as a late flight and feared that it was now messed up. Sighing in relief, I saw that our departure flight for Friday was pushed back an half of an hour.:thumbsup2
Talked to WDW and they will waive the fee for a fridge as long as I have a doctor's note saying we need one. Good news because I wasn't looking forward to shelling out $60 for one. More money to spend in Disney.:yay::cheer2::yay:
Still looking for a Stroller that Liam will fit into for our trip. Will rent one from Disney if I have to, but hoping to find on more comfortable that I can use everywhere. There is a special needs push chair on ebay right now for $75, but if it goes any higher it will be out of the question. Going to talk to doctor while we are here to see what he recommends and if there is anywhere we can rent one from and have insurance pay for it. :confused3 Wish me look.
Last but not least, relizing that we are going to Dinsey in just over 3 months and I am going to be doing all of the walking I freaked.:scared1::eek::scared1: I have not done any exercising at all this winter. So I put my butt in gear and started walking the mall last Wednesday. I have since gone everyother day, walking one side of mall to other and hope to several trips as time goes by. So far walking one end to the other and back again is just over 2 miles. Also got new Scechers that will be nicely broken in by our trip.:dance3::cheer2::dance3:
yah for 3 months to go
Good luck with the new drug treatment
can you rent a handicap stroller?
Unfortunatly Liam's lung functions are down and he has lost 2lbs in 8weeks. He is currently only 51 pounds and will be 9 in may.:eek: Doctor put on an antibiotic, so hopefully that works.
After checking about every day about reservations for the Fantasmic Dining Package,
I became lucky today for there was some available.
So now we have reservations for Mama Melrose for May 31st
That include Fantasmic seats!!!! Yea!!!
Unfortunatly that clashed with our other reservations
so I canceled them and rescheduled them for Friday June 3rd!!!!
I love that everything is coming together for your trip! :lovestruc
What a wonderful surprise!!!
