If you can't tell I'm still panicking. Still no info from MAW other than dates so I am making ADRs now.

Thanks!!!

This is a discounted link, however if you get in with a group of people (check the budget boards for Photo Pass Group) you can get it down to under $20 per person. I started a group and we have 8, only $17 per person and all the photos we can handle.

OK I just posted a very LONG explanation on Clint's site. I kept reading all about other kids on theirs and decided I needed to tell a little more about him and why he is getting his wish. It was very hard for me to do since I don't like to talk about it much. I left out alot but it still tells the jist of it. Hope it isn't too bad. I also put alot of pics before, during and now. Hope you all enjoy it.

I hope you don't mind if I post this here...

First, my prayers go to each and every one of you... this is such a great thread.
I had the pleasure of going on my sister's wish trip back in 1991 (she had T-cell ALL and 4th stage non-hodgins lymphoma, but was a fighter and is now 23 and a new mom, she was 5, I was 17 on the trip)
Because we lived 45 minutes from WDW, our chapter didn't want to let us go to GKTW, but with persuasion, finally gave in. We all thought is was a bit silly since often at cancer support groups, ect.. we would get free admission tickets and went frequently, but she insisted she wanted to go to Disney World, not Disneyland, or something else, so WDW it was and boy am I happy she picked it. It was such a wonderful experience for her and our family. She felt so special, and although it was hard because we never dreamed she would make it as far as she has, she still talks about it like it was yesterday. I can't really give much advice because I am more than sure it has changed a lot since we went, but I am glad to see that families are still able to go and have a good time. I wish there was this kind of online community back then, my mom would have been on a ton I am sure.

Do any of y'all plan on Pin Trading while there. I'm trying to go through our pins from three years ago and pull extras(Mya doesn't remember), but gosh I want to buy more cheap ones for Mya and I to trade.

What a great story! I am so glad she is doing well.

Awwww.....Such a nice story, so glad she is doing so well.
We havent gone yet (next week ) but I am so glad that your MAW chapter finally gave in about letting you all stay at GKTW. Staying there (or on resort) is all part of the Wish trip experience and travelling everyday from home just wouldnt quite cut the mustard would it!

We did last year when we went to WDW. Emy enjoyed it. Sami could have cared less. She just wanted a lanyard with pins "Like Emy."

Can you take cool bags/cool boxes into Walt Disney World/Universal Studio's/Seaworld?

We were thinking of making sandwiches for some of the days and would want to keep them relatively cool. Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches are out as Becca is allergic to Peanut butter.

I think you can (if anyone know's, please correct me) if they are not huge coolers. It's okay to bring a lunchpack in your bag.

The one I was thinking of taking is like one of those that kids take to school for their lunches, soft, not solid and shaped like a shoulder bag. Big enough only to hold apx 3 sandwiches and a couple of bottles of water.

I don't think that would be a problem at all.

We didn't have any problem with it. Our cooler is bigger.
I would say probably 14"hx12"wx16" It's a soft one with a strap. It fits perfectly in the front seat of our stroller and then Drew rides on the back.

Is it that red thing??
If so, ours is smaller than that so I think I can rest easy
