Ok, here are is my 2 cents
Go to passporter.com, sign up for their newsletter. Then at the bottom of their newsletter is a code (a % off). use that code and go order the cruise passporter. I have the deluxe version but that's because we went to WDW last january and figured we'd be going again, so I bought the deluex and took out the WdW stuff (stored) and put in the cruise refill.

But....God works in mysterious ways. The boys were staying at my parents who live 10 min. from the hospital. We otoh, live in the country and it would've taken us 30 min at least to get him to the hospital if we'd been at home. They said he probably wouldn't have made it.

So....I believe there is a big plan out there, so much bigger than me and I try not to second guess the Boss.

Thanks for all the tips, we are very excited!

That is beautifully said. You all have been through so much- it will be a well deserved break. I am glad somebody told you about the passporter site. I couldn't remember where I got mine!

thanks so much for the passporter advice. I ordered that and signed up for those forums as well. I don't know when I'm going to find the time to read everything but I'll try.

I am enjoying getting to meet you and your family! Just wish it was for different reasons, but AJ sounds like a wonderful child.

What a nightmare/blessing of day that must have been when you were in Vegas! Makes me second guess the thought of ever going on vacation without Dallas.

What room are you in? Did they tell you? You can check out the reviews (if there are any) on wdwinfo site room reports

Yea!!

Working on our last treatments this week!!! Yahoo! He is going through his last in-patient treatment right now, and next Tues. will be the last out-patient. (hopefully).

We are in room 2008, and I looked online for a review on it, but there wasn't one. No news is good news, right? I was kind of disappointed it wasn't a room with a balcony, but maybe we can upgrade on our dime once we check in. I was reading in the passporter that is a possibility. I should probably research about it more. Anyway, we are totally happy with anything really, and hopefully won't spend much time in the room at all.

Don't feel bad, we thought the same thing! What cat is it? Do you have a porthole? Congrats on getting your room though! Doesn't it feel more real now???

Just finished our last treatment this week!!! WOOT!!!!



No, that's not coffee, just hot choc. he is a hot choc afficionado!

I really need to get in gear with planning as far as suitcases and stuff go. yikes!! I'm not a good packer. Any advice on packing is appreciated!

Yes, it looks like we have a porthole so that will be awesome! More later!

Parrrrrrrrrttttyyyyyyyyy!!! Isn't that wonderful???? Funny, I started taking Emy to a therapist and it's our "treat" to get hot chocolate on those days. Too FUNNY!!!!

Packing, um, don't ask me. I'm an OVERpacker. But, I'd probably bring two large suitcases for our family, plus carryons. The kids have their own backpacks for the plane (leapsters, paper, crayons, etc) and I carry the snacks and DH carries the cameras. I'm still debating what "purse" to take for excursions. I think my overland Donner is going to win out

You know you can also send a package to the ship ahead of time, just as long as it doesn't have food in it I believe.

Yea! I'm sure that is such a great feeling!

As far as packing-I'm not sure how much you have read over at the Disney Cruise area. We went on a 4 night cruise about 18 months ago. This is my biggest advice-try to pack light. For dinner, bring a couple of pairs of pants ( or skirts if you prefer- I brought capris) and then rotate shirts. You can store your empty suitcases under your bed ( you might have to lift the frame up a bit to slide them under)-this frees up a ton of room. The best time to swim is when you first board-depending on when you board. We got on around noon, grabbed a bite to eat from the buffet then the kids put on their swimsuits and swam in empty pools. If you want to do this, make sure you carry on your swimsuits with you-you won't get your suitcases until about 3:00pm. The pools are small and after my boys had done the Mickey slide a couple of times, they were done with them- but the hottubs might be fun- Nathan can't do them, so we skipped them.

You are going to have such a wonderful time!

Woo Hoo!!!!

Congrats, AJ!!!!! That is fabulous!

I LOVE, LOVE hot chocolate. Especially white hot chocolate. Yum Yum. In fact...in honor of your celebration...I will have one just for you!

Packing...just make sure you pack and extra duffle or something...cause you will probably come home with more than you take. And that stuff expands!
