Make a Wish (and other organizations) ~ Wish Trippers UNITE! Volume FOUR!

This is Volume FOUR of the Wish Trippers Community Thread!

First, Welcome to the WISH TRIPPERS thread!!

This thread is devoted to families that are planning and going on Wish Trips! This thread is designed to be a place where you can ask questions about your wish trips, get some information about wish trips and gain general support from some Mom's and Dad's that really understand what life with a special needs child is like.

If you are new to the DISboards - Welcome!!

If you are new, scroll down to post #2 on this thread (just below on this page) and you will find lots of information designed just for our new friends!

Frequently Asked Questions are answered below in POST 2!


We also welcome anyone else to the thread, too! Even you lurkers out there.




The original thread can be found here: Wish Trippers...Unite! VOLUME ONE

And Volume TWO can be found here:
Wish Trippers ...Unite! VOLUME TWO

And Volume THREE can be found here:
Wish Trippers...Unite! Volume THREE




Wendygrace started this thread concept in 2007 to serve as a place where families planning Make-A-Wish trips could come and share stories, pictures, information, and just life! Thank you so much, Wendygrace, because many of us have become friends through your original thread!

So...let's keep the thread going...


Many of these families have chosen to write a trip report and you can find the links to ALL of the Wish Trip Reports right here: (This list includes many of the trips linked in Volume One!)


WE are HOME! Trip Reports!!

2004
Amazing Grace's Wish Trip (links)-MAW/GKTW-Late June 04

2007
Wendygrace's Wish Trip - MAW/GKTW - Late June 07 Great pictures, magical moments! The founder of this thread wrote this one!


5dwarves' Wish Trip - Magic Moments/GKTW-August 07 Uber planner! Live report from Disney! Followed by a day by day report with pictures!

LeeLee2U's Wish Trip - Texas Wishing Well/Beach Club - September 07 Note they stayed at the Beach Club (Texas Wishing Well Funded Trip). This trip report includes hints for wheelchairs (manual push chair)

Bill Lin's Wish Trip - MAW/GKTW - September 07 Good index! Has a wealth of advice for Wish Trippers that has been linked on this Wish Trippers Unite thread!

Who'syourMickey's Wish Trip-Dream Factory/GKTW - September 07 Dream Factory trip. Good index! Great allergies information! Good info re: GKTW villas. TR is unfinished, though.


iluvmickeymouse!'s Wish Trip-MAW/GKTW-Oct.23-31, 2007 Great TR! Lots of pics. Very detailed. Lots of character interaction. Complete with Photopass pics!




**** Update - I have been asked to do something new on here. Some of you guys would like to know which of these TR's are FINISHED so that you don't get all caught up in one and have no real hope of an ending. Sorta like reading a cliffhanger that has never been finished.

So, I will start with the TR's that started over a year ago and mark the ones that are FINISHED.

If yours is NOT FINISHED, please don't worry...I am going to wait about 6 months before I even mark the TR's, so most of you guys will have plenty of time to finish...and I know there are many reasons why a TR would be unfinished - taking care of your family comes FIRST - but this will help our new folks to be able to pick some TR's that are completely finished so that they can use them to plan their trip.

Does anybody know if it is allowed to carry-on a car GPS unit? If not, can it be in a checked bag? I would like to bring ours for use in our rental van.

I'd definitely suggest putting it in your carry-on (as someone already noted, it is allowed). NOTHING of value should go in your checked luggage.

Wink Made it!

I made it over.... I was wondering when it was going to happen! Didn't want to miss it!

Maroo, can you put our ptr on the above list?

Shelby/Luvmygirls3, I wish I were closer I would certainly come and take the school kids photos. I luv doing it. Sometimes the mainstream companies many schools use want so much of a $ gaurantee and they take so little time with the kids. The workers at the school assist me and we spent quite a bit of time per child to get it. Sometimes it just doesn't happen, especially if it's an off day for the child, but sometimes it just takes the right timing. Maybe there is a local photographer that would be willing..... they should look into it.
