Bill, my daughter Bridget's Wish trip dates to DL are Aug 11-18. She is 16.

I have no details, other than I think we will get tickets for both DL and Universal. Apparently we may not hear much until a week or so before the trip. Especially because there is so little info on DL Wish trips here on DIS, I will make sure I post information as I get it, and after the trip too.

We would love to hear about your trip to DL. Your right there is not much info on wish trips to DL...so you can be one of the first to share all your knowledge!!!

Hope everyone had a great 4th!!

Pat, be my Scout please

Pat,

I am counting on you to be our scout at DL. We will be going in September for our World Passport Trip. We will be on our own, and though we will have a GAC, we will not be on a Wish Trip. Still, your experience and input will be a blessing.

HUGS

Bill

For those of you going to DL

Hi! We went to DL on a family trip last December. After a wonderful experience at WDW, with such accessibility and so many cast members going out of their way to make our days less challenging and more magical, we decided to have another does of that Disney magic!

We were there the first week of December. If anyone has any DL questions, I'd be happy to try to answer them!

In summary, there were reasons of access, proximity of everything and flexibility to change gears because of the proxiomity that really appealed to my husband and me. They boys still preferred WDW, but we all agreed that there were some things we liked better at WDW and also things we preferred at DL. We stayed at the Grand Californian, and we could walk to the DL gates in 8 minutes!!!

Our son has cerebral palsy and uses a w/c in the parks. The w/c had a flat and we needed a new inner tube (yup, we carry a spare now!). The store we wanted to go to was closed, so he did his best using his walker. Our little man "did" the parks for 1 1/2 days using his walker, the DL train, and sometimes us pushing him a little in the walker (it has a seat). Everything was so close!

Although we had a GAC (Mark has other medical issues), because many of the w/c entrances are alternate entrances anyway, we really didn't use it near as much as we did at WDW.

We found the CMs to be just as friendly and helpful as WDW and had a great trip.

Any questions?

Alison

More DL tips

Just remembered: for those of you going to DL, don't forget to read the "HydroGuy Tips Compilation" thread on the Disneyland section of the DISboards. Lots of great DL/WDW comparisons to help with your planning.

For those of you who have supported us in this, I want you to know that my son, Chris, is out of Iraq and will be in the states in less than a week. This was his last combat tour.

Thank you all,

Bill

Wow...so much reading to catch up on! You guys have been busy!

I finally added another episode on Evan's TR. I've been super busy, but with GOOD stuff. If you haven't read the latest installment of the TR, Evan has regained sight in his left eye. We are super excited! They may allow him to return to school in the fall.

I'm SO glad your son is on his way back. Thank him for serving! Let's get the rest of our soldiers home, now!

Congrats

I'm so glad your prayer and ours in your behalf have been answered. You all deserve this so much. At Provo, UT's Stadium of Fire last night, they honored a unit that had just come home and CNN made special arrangements for 3 families to talk to their loved ones in Iraq. My daughter said it was so wonderful to see how happy those families were.

Enjoy your reunion!
Denise
