I understand the blahs. I have been having them too. Maybe it is the summer weather? I think Disney withdrawal sounds totally logical!
Sorry you are having the blahs.

It's been 10 days since last time at Disney. We are thinking about heading over for lunch if Anakin is ok. His cough is much better, but he had a seizure last night, so we will play it by ear.

No! No! No! No! No! Poor Anakin! He's been seizure free for so long.

Glad to hear that Anakin's cough is better, but sorry to hear he had a seizure.

I am sorry to hear that Anakin had a seizure last night. It's good that his cough is better. I hope you ended up having lunch at Disney.

I know! It was such a let down that he had a seizure, but such a blessing that he went this long without one!

Thanks. I'm not sure if it's time helping his cough or the antibiotic? (The ped did give us a prescription for the antibiotic the first visit to her, but she said it wasn't going to work on the 2nd visit.) It's been slow going with the cough and lingering.

He only woke up around 11am, so we didn't make it for lunch. I had finished Kingdom Keepers II, so we make a quick run to AoA for supper and looked for the book there. It wasn't there, so I ran into WoD after we ate and bought books III and IV. Then we headed home. I will have a dining report and pics of the Cars section to post. The Cars section was absolutely amazing!

Sorry about the seizure...maybe the next on (praying there is not one) will be even farther apart from this one!

We can't even seem to get through the 1st Kingdom Keepers...we get so busy at night and then it seems like bedtime sneaks up and I am too worn out from the day.

Looking forward to seeing the CARS section!

So far so good since! He's had some myoclonic twitching in his sleep, but nothing more.

If you have a w/c or are unable to go down steps, the entrance that everyone uses to get to Merida will also be your way to exit after meeting her. Otherwise, there are steps to the coloring area when you exit.

There are tapestries as decorations all around. There is a cart where pictures are taken. In the cart is a target and the three brothers as bears. The bears move and laugh!





Found this merchandise in one of the stores on Main St.



Anakin loved the brother/bear!! It folds inside and outside. One way it's a brother, the other way it's a bear! Very cute!!




The meet and greet sounds very well done! I enjoyed brave too, I have reddish hair, and Merida sure sounds like my name, so it was neat! I'm loving the well-themed M&G's Disney is doing these days! And that stuffed animal is a really clever idea!

We decided to wait for Pooh before we went up for food. Anakin asked for Dh's phone and put on some Star Wars music. Pooh came up and began to jam to the tune! This made Anakin silly. They posed for a picture.



And totally out of the blue, Anakin points and yells, "honey." We along with Pooh and everyone else near us looks where Anakin is pointing. He starts laughing and getting silly, then announces, "I'm just kidding!" He got ALL of us good!



Just like the first time we sat down, a character was there as soon as we started eating!!



That's 3 characters down before we even got to dessert!! Oops make that 4, here comes Eeyore!!



3 minutes after Eeyore, Piglet comes back!!!



Piglet likes Star Wars music too!



We paid our bill. Eeyore was only a couple tables away, but we decided not to wait. Our bellies were full. We were happy. This was one of the best experiences we had at the Crystal Palaces. Never had the characters come around this many times!! It was very magical!!

Wow, what a magical dining experience, it sounds wonderful! Anakin's smile just says it all, love that he played Star Wars music and pranked Pooh! I love his sense of humor!

This past week he is able to understand boundaries and control his pencil!! Here's a sample!!

His handwriting looks great! Glad to hear he is doing well in his schoolwork, I can imagine how frustrating it must be for him! Praying that he stays seizure-free as long as possible so he can continue to make strides.

After all we read about arsenic in them we cut him down to one juice box a day. Can't wait til we can squeeze our own oranges! He has only been drinking water, milk or orange juice. He was Vitamin D deficient so maybe his D levels back up are making the difference too?
Apparently more and more studies are showing the bad effects of gluten. I am supposed to go gluten-free to help with my symptoms, I've tried it several times, but I'm a picky eater and my carbs! So I can't seem to pull off the gluten-free diet, but it sure does have great health benefits if you can! Diet makes a world of difference whatever your medical concerns are, period!

This is the food report I posted on the AoA thread + pictures that I didn't post.

What an amazing resort!! I had promised a poster on here that I would report back on how dining went with our son who has ASD.

The resort is beautiful!! None of the pictures do it justice. The pictures are amazing, but in person the resort is that much more incredible!!

You have fully convinced me to stay at AoA, don't want to quote all the pictures, but what a gorgeous resort! Just sent a text to my dad saying I need a Disney fix, really hoping to take a trip this spring and stay at AoA. IT!

All caught up!

Hope you get a chance to meet her!

This was his second ever character meal. He was two the last time we were here. And he remembered it, well, he remembered a certain dessert.



His handwriting looks great! Glad to hear he is doing well in his schoolwork, I can imagine how frustrating it must be for him! Praying that he stays seizure-free as long as possible so he can continue to make strides.

Appreciate the prayer!

Gluten and soy both.

Goo says he missed Anakin...we were just looking at your CP pictures.
