I am writing to say, "Thank you!" It is an incredible gift to all of us who have to plan so carefully to have the benefit of your knowledge, and I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate what you have done and accomplished here.

You are a special person to take so much time to help others ensure that their vacations are as "Magical" as possible. Bless you!
ITA! ditto! bingo! what she said!

With thanks and hope for a blessed time

We have been to wdw more than 20 times over the last 28 years. It has always been our happy place, but more so in the series of crisis times we have been through in recent years. Coming to Disney for the first time after one crisis was the first time in a while that I had felt true joy down deep in my chest. We gained many tips and information from the other forums over the years because my husband was frequently searching the threads. Over recent months, I personally began searching through the disabilities thread due to a disability I now have. Sue, I appreciate what you are doing here. I have learned and I have found encouragement. Although, there are times that I have read something posted by others that made me cry and fearful of what could happen on our next trip. I guess it is just like being at the parks where there are those who are understanding and helpful, those who go their own way, and those who can be judgmental, basing their judgments on their own experiences without empathy or understanding. We will be there soon and I will rent an ECV. I will ask for a GAC because I have an "invisible" problem and there are times I will need to walk, but can not walk too much and never know how much pain there will be. I am still sometimes fearful of how this could affect me or my family if we have any issues with this, but I thank you for how much you have helped me have the knowledge and courage I have.

So true, I have found that since I have started to turn away from my negative thoughts (a lot harder than I thought it would be, trust you me) I have surrounded myself with happier people almost by default. What they say is true – misery really does love company.
