You guys are really in for it, lol! Tomorrow I will post some pics of Selah's Disney Wish Trip!

I'm really glad I found you guys! I hope everyone has a wonderful evening!

We've Harry Potter'd ourselves to death this weekend! We are HUGE Harry fans and ABC Family has been showing the movies all weekend. We have all the movies, but there's just something about them coming on regular tv that gets us all excited!

Well, it's a rainy day here in Pittsburgh but you sure couldn't tell from my house!

I told my son that he is having special friends coming this evening to see him and he is so excited! He doesn't even know who or for why, but he keeps saying he can't wait to see his friends lol!

We are even going to make some cookies for his special friends...hmmmm maybe that's why he's so excited!

I will definitely keep you guys posted and let you know how everything goes tonight!

I'm not sure if my oldest daughter is going to be home in time. She has pre audition rehersals tonight and won't be home until close to seven, I think!

The wish granters just left not too long ago! I'm so sad that my battery on my digital camera died!!!

Anyway, the little ones were extremely excited! The wish granters came with all kinds of MAW goodies. T-shirts, balls, water bottles and a beautiful MAW bear for the wish boy!

We caught up on everything that's been going on over the past year. And guess what? They remembered something that I had been going through with Selah! Selah as really bad sleep issues (that's another topic for another day) but they are not your typical I don't want to go to bed issues. These are she stays awake for three whole day issues!!!

Anyway it was nice of them to remember and ask me how she is doing and if thing improved! They asked Chase all kinds of questions. Most of which he just smiled and laughed! He is sooo silly. They asked him what kinds of things does he like. He told them he likes spaceships, boats, trains, plains, motorcycles and moster jam trucks, lol.

I asked him if he wanted to be someone and he said NEMO!

They asked him if he wanted to go somewhere and he said "I want to go back to Disney World!"

So I gave them some dates! One of the wish granters daid that Halloween is a great time to go because some (or one) of the parks stay open a little later and they have a seperate parade and all kinds of things. She said that only people with the special pass can get in. You can purchase the pass for an additional fee. MAW takes care of all that.

Hmmm.....now I'm not so sure when to go, lol. The dates I gave were in May and June.(early June)

His birthday is in Novemeber.

Because of the children's breathing difficulties early June is the latest that I think it would be safe for them to go...and that might be pushing it a little.

I better give it some more though!

So what do you guys think??

hmmmmm!!!! Now I don't know what to do!! lol What was the halloween party like? I don't konw if I'll be able to keep my secret that long! But that would be so coool!

I was just thikning about somethings that I would do differently this time around. We were actually Disney First timers last year! I went to disney when I was like 7 but that doesn't count, lol. I think they were just finished with Epcott maybe?

Anyway there are some differences. My mom isn't going to go this time. Our MAW chapter was extremely gracious in allowing her to go. She does not live with us however she was supposed to go to help me out with the littles. Plus I don't drive, due to a medical condition so we figured this would be the best way. Well, the kids were a bit much for grandma! I'm used to the chaos and hustle and bustle because I'm with them everyday. Grandma, wasn't as enthusiastic about helping out as I thought she would be. Not mad at her at all. But I knew then, if we ever got a chance to go back or anywhere else for seven days that it would just be me and the kids.

So, with no second pair of adult hands and no minivan, we are going to have to plan....plan...plan!!!

The first thing is the airport!!! When we went last year it was winter here, so we had coats and everything to deal with. We had to de-layer to go through the line. This time we are going simple. Can you say FLIP FLOPS!!!! Also my son is a very busy little guy! We only had one portable dvd player last year. This year I'm going to purchase an extra one. Plus in his carryon, lots of little things to keep him busy! Any ideas for what worked for some of you would be very helpful!

The other thing that I am trying to decide about is when to go to the parks. Last year we went in the morning, first thing!! By 3-4 oclock the little ones were pooped and we were leaving to go back to the village. So we never made the fireworks. My kids aren't huge fireworks fans but I think it would be nice to see anyways. But I've read a lot of reviews about how long it took to wait, and how a lot of poeple couldn't get good spots! I also read about how long it took to get out of there when it was time time to go...so... I don't know if we're going to try for it or not.

I was thiking that we could maybe go early one day, go back to the village to unwind and then maybe go back just for the fireworks???? UGH!!!!

I'm really getting excited. Because if I don't hold out until Halloween, or Chase's birthday which is in November, we could be going as early as the end of May!!!!!! Anyone going in May? How about around Halloween??? Or around Novemeber 14th!!!

I'm going to drive you guys nuts.

I also realize I better put my trip link in my signature!!! I keep forgetting!

Hope everyone's day is off to a magical start!

Hi Leah!

Welcome

Have you found the 'Wish Trippers Unite' thread? It's under the 'Disabilities' forum (not the 'Disabilities Community' forum, just 'Disabilities'). There are alot of Wish trippers in the planning stages here and I'm sure they don't realize you are here or they'd all be posting to welcome you and help you out. There's also a bunch of us who have already gone and now are in the midst of writing our Trip Reports (I would be one of those, we went in December). So hurry up and pop on over and introduce yourself oik?
