GKTW Trip Reports

I am just now getting a chance to listen to the podcast (Live Call Show) and heard the call from tswjan78 about looking for GKTW Trip Reports.

I think I have actually sent this info to the podcast team, but it may have been overlooked in all of the fan mail!

We have a special thread on the DISboards for families planning Wish Trips.
I have a link to over 50 pre-trip reports and trip reports on our special thread.




Here are some TR's that are completed:

The founder of the Wish Trippers Unite thread wrote this one. She is not on the boards as much anymore...but still stops by occasionally!
Wendygrace's TR - June 2007



Major planner and a complete TR with pics from each day! She still posts and helps those planning trips!
5dwarves' Wish Trip - August 07



Bill Lin still posts helpful hints on the Wish Trippers thread for families that are planning!
Bill Lin's Wish Trip - Sept 07



Very detailed Wish Trip TR!
ilovemickeymouse's Wish Trip - October 2007



And those are just the ones we have finished from 2007!!!




There are LOTS more on the Wish Trippers Thread...

Wish Trippers Unite Thread - Post 1 is an INDEX of ALL WISH TRIP REPORTS


I should note that the majority of the trip reports on the thread are not completed. It is very difficult for some of these families to write a trip report when they get home, because they are so busy just trying to take care of their children.


I will keep looking through the threads and try to pull out some more that are finished from 2008...


If you guys are interested...I can keep this thread updated and post a "Wish Trip of the Week" or something like that.

Of course, you guys that are interested can hop over to the Wish Trippers thread and stay up all night reading like the rest of us!

They are crazy busy, I am sure!!! With only days until the cruise! And I am sure they get lots and lots of emails.

I actually sent this in January when I first heard about the GKTW fundraiser. So it has been a while ago.

I think that's a great idea "Wish Trip of the Week". I know that I would really like to read a weekly Wish Trip report.

No...you can only sleep there on THE wish trip...

But, once a child is a GKTW wish child, they are invited back to eat and go to all the parties and play in the village at ANY time they would like when they come back to visit. They can see characters and everything...they just can't actually sleep there.
