Looks like you had a great start! So sorry you were given outdated info. I hope you called or emailed Disney to let them know what happened so they can fix the problem of sending out outdated info . I can't wait to read about you meeting Jordan, Winkers, Rosie, etc!!

I am here. Your son has gotten so big. I am glad to see he is in a 5 point harness seat. We are keeping my dd in one until she is not able to fit in it any more. It will be a while hers is good to 60 lbs. My friends keep telling me to switch her but I keep saying nope not going to happen. She is safer in that seat and she still like sit because it lifts her up so she can see out the windows. My friend thinks I am nuts even though she has seen what can happen to a child not in a 5 point harness seat. I can't wait to read about the reat of your trip.

Hi! I'm joining in... I've read some of your previous reports but it's been a while. I've been following Jordan so I thought it would be fun to follow along with you too.

We were dealing with food allergies (actually more intolerances in DS9's case) back during our 2006 & 2007 trips & WDW was fantastic about it! I think TS meals worked out better than CS meals though for the reasons you mentioned at Electric Umbrella. I'm sorry your information was outdated - we had up to date information so it made it a lot easier. We ordered, then the chef met us outside of the line so nobody was held up. There were several times that the chesf made special gluten free chicken nuggets for DS. I hope the food situation improved for you guys!

I will have to show DD-almost 6 the pic of your son in his car seat. She is also still in a 5 point harness since she is under 4olb. 45 inches but 38lb. 80% of her friends are in a booster. She thinks she is moving at 4olb but her seat harnesses to 60lb. All it took was watching that video on YouTube.
Avery's best friend also has a severe tree nut allergy-also has the epi. I would watch her at my house and took her out a few times-it was gut wrenching. I was a wreck. Those rude people can-well ya know. HELLO, have YOU HEARD of ANAPHLACTIC REACTION??? This is LIFE or DEATH people not a PICKY kid. Acck, people are so stupid. I have a walnut allergy which was noted on our ressie and the people at the restraunt would always let me know if something contained them. I hope it got easier!
I'm pretty sure he can be in a booster but the 5 point harness is much more safe. They say if they are still within the height/weight bracket for it and they will sit in it, to keep them there as long as you can. He doesn't complain about it so it works for us. That is a brand new seat. It's a high back booster that sort of grows taller. We will see how long before he starts wanting to do the seatbelt.

Yeah the food allergies are very nerve wracking. Last year there was a boy in DS's class that had the peanut allergy. I got used to reading labels for cookies and cupcakes for school but sadly not every parent does. Most of the time they go with the attitude of "mine doesn't have it, so why should i bother".

Yeah, I really wanted to tell them that. But I tried to stay focused. I knew it was going to be a long 7 days as far as food was concerned.

Great start on the trip report. Sorry to hear about the food situation.
I guess the good news is as you go more often, you will get better at knowing what is OK and what is potentially a problem.


Yes, it is all a major learning process. The foods that are ok over here where we live are not the same at WDW. They do seem to use many more products that have seeds, nuts, nut flour, etc in them. A lot of times it's hidden which makes it even more difficult.

My SIL cannot eat gluten so she and my brother have to check ingredients before they order. One good thing is that it seems that more people are eating gluten free food and it is becoming more common. They had good experiences eating in WDW. Sorry you had to go through that with your son... but you are right- his health is most important. Who cares about a bunch of people you don't know standing behind you!


One day when I was ordering at Columbia Harbor House there was a man next to me that had to order gluten free. He had to do the whole binder thing like I did. It's crazy but I'm not sure how else they could/would do it.

My laundry was clean in my suitcase. I washed it all before we left Florida. HOWEVER, from this week I have a huge pile just staring at me.

Hi Tracy!!
I plan on sending an email, I just haven't had time yet. Besides the outdated information, I also need to gather all of my thoughts about the entire experience before I start. While their system is fairly good, there is still much room for improvement.

The meets were AWESOME!!

I agree about the seat. I plan on keeping him in there as long as I can. He doesn't complain about it so that makes it much easier. My friends look at me weird and ask why he's still in there too. I don't care. They can do their thing and I will do mine.

Wow, I'm getting a lot from Jordans PTR. Glad you're here.

The free shot of OJ is great!! Sounds silly but we think it's fun.

Hi there!! Glad to see you back.
Yes, the TS did seem to be a bit easier than the CS. But not completely fool proof. Stay tuned!!

An announcement......

I have an announcement to make!!!! I was going to wait until I get to this part on my TR but we didn't take the tour until our 2nd to last day. So, it would take a while and I'm bursting at the seams to tell you that.........










WE ARE NOW DVC OWNERS!!!!!!!


After much thought, we decided to buy 160 points at Animal Kingdom Villas.

(Thanks to WendyO & glennbo for the helpful info!!)

We may add more points later. But for now they matched our points for this year and we also got $15 off per point. It was a deal we just couldn't pass up. I must say it feels awesome to be "in the club". Hopefully we will get our 1st trip booked soon. I'm waiting for our package to arrive to get all the technical stuff done but I think we may be going back this summer. We will get to try out our home resort at AKV with a savannah view! Soooo.....who else is going in June????

Congratulations!!!!!!!!!! That is so exciting!

Keep them in the seat as long as you can, we certainly did it longer than most around here. 6 and 60 used to be the law but now it's 8 and 80! However the state also factors in height and provides some good tools to help you determine at what point switching makes sense.

Our 2 younger ones JUST hit 60 pounds and they are 10.5 and 9.5 so we really had to look at height, where the belt hits them, etc and it is different by car so we had different seat rules for the different cars.

I am so sorry you had to deal with impatient people, I can only imagine how difficult it must be. I really hope it got better! It is hard. Eric has a classmate with severe allergies and my nephew just went gluten free, it is so much work to be on top of the labels.

Heck I just found out my cat is allergic to wheat and that's a pain.
