Jessica's Make-A-Wish Trip :)

I would like to start with I know this pre-trip thread is real short notice but I only just found these boards a few days ago. I am new at this so bare with me. Ok now on with the show.

My family

DH- Roger 41
DW- Me 37
DS- Roger 18
DS- Curtis 15
DD- Jessica 13 (wish child)
DS- Nathan 12
DS- Brandon 10

My name is Tammy I am 37 years young I have been with my wonderful hubby Roger for 9 years now. Together we have five wonderful children. He has three from his first marriage and I have two from mine. He has since adopted my two We have three wish children in the family two has already receved there wishes. All 3 of the wish kids have Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC for short) When I first heard of MAW I did not think our kids would qualify cause they are doing good. But I thought heck it won’t hurt to just give it a try and if you have not guessed by now they were accepted Our first wish child wished to be a police officer that was a wish he or us for that matter will NEVER forget… Our next child’s wish was for an outdoor play set he loves to swing. Now it is time for our DD wish to come true at the end of this month we will be traveling to sunny Orlando to spend a wonderful 6 day and 5 night trip to WDW… We cannot wait we are soooo excited….

We don’t have a lot of time left before we go but I have loads of questions to ask. Some I have asked on other threads and have gotten answers for but I still have more. Every time I read a new wish trip post, I come up with new ones. Therefore, I will let you all know them as this thread goes.

Thanks so much you guys are AWESOME!!!

Tammy

Your Trip Report

Great start Tammy! Keep posting and asking questions. This board helped me so much in planning our Wish Trip.

My favorite tip: Shop for Disney items at Wal-Mart and the Flea Market just down the road from GKTW and save a BUNDLE.

We really enjoyed hooking up with two families we met here that were on their trips when we were. We shared cell numbers by PM. One family was at GKTW and the other was at a Disney Resort. We met the first group for Ice Cream (Hurray Ice Cream Palace) and the other in a park. We even took in a show together at Disney Studios. It added to the trip and the sharing afterwards.

That would be awesome to meet someone from here that you have been chatting with. I have seen at least two that will be there at the same time as us.

Epcot can provide a passport that the child gets stamped at each country. There are also educational crafts or activities for the countries.

Oh wow that sounds neat I think that my DD would like that she loves learning about other places. It would also help her in her Girl Scouts.

Thanks so much
