The dates that I would be interested in for the parade are either Dec 16th or Dec 18th.
If you go to the locked sticky Everything About WDW Tickets in the TPA&S Forum, especially Post #16, you can get a lot more information about MVMCP. An easy way to get to the sticky is by clicking on the link in my signature. The ticket sticky is your friend!

Please say a little prayer for us. Our wish kid has had a cold and last night he woke up because he was having trouble breathing and was having some "stuff" (don't want to disgust anyone) come up. We were able to get it under control with an albuterol treatment but he has to see his doctor today. They think it might be another round of pneumonia.

It would make him mad when we would go to doors and then just leave. This doesnt make sense to him and if you think about it the whole concept is kind of is crazy if you look at it from his concrete perspective We are excited because I think this will be the perfect thing for him. We are also excited at all of the extra character visits. However, I think in your situation there is no way that I would pay that much money and possibly put my son through some extra stress. If you think he might just like the characters you could check out the Spooktacular at Sea World on Fridays. It is free with admission and I read that they have some special things going on. I hope this helps and I am sure whatever you decide you will have a great time.
Thanks for your input - the more I think about it, the more I think it would just be a bad idea for him.

And anyone else reading this - always go with your "Mommy gut" for any advice I give... Nothing trumps that!

There is a TON of things to do at GKTW - so I don't think you will be "missing" anything if you skip it. It is a very expensive party and probably not worth it if you can only go for a couple of hours. To get back to your room by 9:00 pm - you would really have to leave the MK at 8ish because of the time it takes to travel to and from MK - so I would skip it!

Spend the money on something else special!

Lauren wants me to "stop ignoring her" now...says no one wants to know "THAT MUCH" about Disney trip planning!

So I guess I better go!
Thanks for your input Maroo. I think I am going back to my original plan of not going. I do think it would be too much for him, and we would see that the next day and that really would not be worth it.

I thought I had already replied to you, but I hope Gavin is feeling better. This weird weather pattern up here has all the doctors scrambling! Prayers for a fast recovery and that mon, dad, and sis stay healthy.

Thank you to everyone for your prayers and concerns! It worked!! He does have bronchitis so he was placed on antibiotics and back on the albuteral treatments at least three times per day (more if we feel it is needed the doc said). They think he will be able to fight it off now that his heart is in better condition. Things like simple colds can turn scary for our kids but I am thinking we are going to be okay Thanks again everyone!

But now, oh yay!!! I'm a heart mom too, I know what you mean. Really hoping that mine can manage to stay healthy on our lead up as well. Hope the meds do the trick and it's all good from here on in!!

I need to make sure my daughter has her bath chair, formula, oxygen, diapers and wipes...do you pack these things (minus the oxygen) in an extra suitcase. Or can you ship it to GKTW?

Is the home health agency you use in FL as well? If so, they might deliver those things for you. Then, you could just carry what you need for the flight (& maybe a lil extra, just in case of delays).

If not, then I would definitely contact your Wish chapter & see what they can go (GKTW, too).
