Spent the last couple of days looking at Universal and Sea world...looks like we will be very limited in what we can do since Katie is barely 40" tall and she is too old for some of the preschool things. We will stop by and see what she maybe interested in but those days maybe we will be able to do alot of things at GKTW instead. Maybe she will grow 2" in the next month...I cannot believe it is getting so close.

I tell ya, I was checking out those websites and was less than impressed with Universal. Seaworld and IOA sound cool but I just don't know about US. I think I am mostly excited about GKTW! lol How many days do you have left?

I feel the same way you did after looking at the websites, they don't really say much about the height requirements (like can she go with an adult taller than that) My husband has been to Sea world and said some of the shows are cool but she can't do any experiences because she is too young. I think we may do short days there and spent some free time at GKTW and downtown disney. We have exactly 31 days

We can check off costumes for makeover. Disney store had great markdowns so we will be able to do the make overs, I just need to call for reservations at the BBB. With lack of work the last few weeks for DH the sale at Disney store saved us. Does anyone have preferences to BBB in Downtown or the castle?

new to your thread
Your dd is a little fighter

I have to say sea world was one of our favorite days. The kids loved feeding the dolphins and touching the sting rays. We had to drag them away. They only went on the water ride but they loved their day at Sea World.

I have been thinking....we may just skip US and just hit SW and IOA.....but I can't make up my mind! lol I am sure I will change it 17000 more times before we even leave.

Do you realize that we are just going to miss each other at GKTW by one day I believe. We are there Feb 6-12.

That's awesome! (The Disney store mark downs NOT the lack of work! )

Our closest DS is 70 miles away.

We are having Lily's makeover done at the BBB in MK.....but that is just because that is where we are going to be when her appointment is. Also when we were there a few July's ago it was really cool seeing all the little girls walking around in the princess garb and you could tell they thought they were hot stuff (and rightly so, they were all adorable!), so we opted for MK.

thanks for the info on seaworld It is hard when the info on line is limited.

Happy New Year everyone!!! We have had a busy week here at our home. Looks like we will not have to carry pedisure with us. Katie has figured out the whole eating thing and has been eating up a storm. Pediatrian feels she has been eating enough that she can probably do without the supplemental feedings for the week. Yeah one less bag to carry...now if she can grow an inch we can leave home the car seat and bring just the booster. lol

One more hurdle for the month and we will be all doctored out befor e we leave just ortho and hopefully the experimental leg thing will give us some more time before her amputation.
here is to a great 2011

Big day tomorrow, we pick up Katie's hearing aid. She is so excited she hasnt had one since she was 2 and it drove her crazy b/c she couldn't tell us if it was set correctly. I just hopes she stays this excited after she starts to wear it

23 days and counting ...Girls are so excited. We meet with AWCT next wednesday to finalize. Katie doesn't know we are going to finalize her trip since thinks she isjust going for her monthly craft program that they do.

How exciting that you are getting the final details of your trip so soon and that it will be a surprise for Katie is awesome. We will be there around the same time as your family and don't get final details until the 22nd. I think I pretty much know what they will tell us but still seems so close to when we leave. Now that it is under one month it is getting pretty exciting around here as I am sure it is around your house.

Maybe we will see you around GKTW! Take care...
