Magical Express went smoothly. . . I think I would have been eating on the bus ride as well. Was there a sign that said not to eat or drink?

I hope you will post some pictures of the room. I love AKL we stayed there for one night in 2006 and we love to eat at Boma.

I know you are all very hungry and very tired by this point.....but Woot! You have finally arrived at your designation. Can't wait to hear what you think about Kidani. No matter how many pictures you look at, I still don't think you're ever prepared for how beautiful the place is.

Glad to hear the ME experience went pretty well for you! It sounds like Billy found the movie right up his alley. Has he asked for his own copy of it yet?

Lovely update, Kathy!

Yeah, some people! Sheesh! How hard can it be to just get up and walk 2 feet?

Sorry, I"m with most of the others! Certainly most on the bus would have known it was late and you probably were hungry and hadn't eaten. I'd have eaten too.

Glad Billy was happy with his gum and video- happy all the way-------------

Okay I'm so excited to finally post on one of your reports. I have been a DISer for about a week and a half and stumbled onto your first Adventures in Autism my second day on the DIS. I was instantly hooked. My 9 yr old. son Jonnie has PDD-NOS and ADHD as well as LD's and I could relate to so much of what you said. I laughed I cryed I procrastinated getting anything done for my own trip to WDW (our very first) but I reasoned that what I was reading would be invaluable to us touring the parks with not only my son but also my DH who is disabled vetran and has numerous issues of his own. So here I am. I have read all of the Adventures in Autism trip reports straight through (skipped the marathon and current pre trippie I will read them when I get back)and I have to catch up on this TP but I coulden't wait to post. I want to thank you for posting all your experiences. To tell you the truth I had been, on some level, dreading this WDW trip I just coulden't imagine it working well. Now thanks to you I am much more confident.

Karibu Makazi indeed!!! How exciting that you are finally at Kidani! I can't wait to hear all about your impressions of it (and see pictures, of course!) Glad that Billy made it through the ME ride -- I imagine all of you were pretty tired at that point!

Yuck...that flight stench must have been awful! Love the visual of you with the citrus wipe over your nose! LOL!

So glad ME was smooth for you and especially for Billy.

Can't wait to see pics of Kidani!
