How's the planning going? Are both boys excited? Do you have a good set of maps? My son used to love to go through the maps and determine what he wanted to do!

We have our planner done!!! Thank you Maroo!!! We have our ADR's at Crystal Palace and we actually get to visit with Maroon in person. And we are going to the Sci Fi at DHS. Oh the boys are so excited. We started the countdown calendar so they can not wait until each day they wake up and mark one more day down. No I do not have maps but that is a great ideal. They boys love to look at maps when we travel.

Order the maps on the Disney website. They are really nice and you can let the kids help you pick which things to have put on their very own personalized disney maps!! My daughter thought this was the coolest thing ever! They even send you stickers to mark special things on the map. It's nice to sit there and let them dream about all the fun they are about to have!

Definitely order the Disney Maps online. They are a beautiful keepsake if nothing else!

If you want to PM me your address (or let me know when you might be down in the store again!), I can get you an extra set of maps. (I am a planning freak, so I always keep extra maps! (I hound all my friend to bring me extra maps home when they go)

When I first started this site I was thinking WOW what a wonderful way of getting information about our trip and tips to help plan the best trip EVER for my sons!!! But what I have received far out weighs anything I have ever expected. We have 57 days left before we leave on our trip and the magic has already started. It is so overwhelming how total strangers have cared for me and my family. The advice you have offered and encouragement has been such a blessing. And also thank you for sharing your family and their stories. I know at times it is not easy. They have been such encouragements! Sometimes you feel like you are all alone and then on this site you are able to reach out to someone and guess what they are there to lean on. And the BIG GIVE!! It is so incredible.

You have all been such a blessing!!!

I am sorry about being so mushy but I felt like this is something that I need to share.

Just catching up from the BIG GIVE site.

The story of the last day of school brought tears to my eyes. What a wonderful thing for his school to do.

It was so overwhelming that day. Lucas was just speechless. We are so blessed to be a part of a school who really go the extra mile to support their students. What is so cool is everywhere he goes this summer everyone from his school remembers that and asks when are you going on your Wish Trip. So it has made Lucas feel very special. He says Mom I do not even know these people.

We got alittle bit of pixie dust today. A friend of mine from Elementary School(yes an old friend) was in Disney this past week and sent cards from Mickey Mouse to the boys. They thought it was so cool that Mickey knows they are coming!!! I can not believe it is getting closer. We are getting so excited. Only 50 more days!!!!!

It has already been such a wonderful journey and we have not even left town yet. I know it is only going to get better and I just can not wait. It is so wonderful to have a great distraction from Lucas' chemo!!!!

I hope you enjoy the ride with us!!!! All of the wonderful people on the boards have helped make this an incredible journey.

Thank you for coming along of these incredible journey with us. We are so looking forward to our trip. At the end of each day we have a calendar and we have begun the final countdown. It is exciting to see we are getting one day closer. It will be so nice to get away and laugh and just have a great time. We are so looking forward to it.

We got an email from our wish volunteer this morning asking about our send off party. She wanted to know what we wanted to do. With the dates being still 42 away (yes we are counting) it is making it feel more real. Sometimes it feels like a dream but I believe our dreams are about to come true for my child and my family.
