Welcome! Airtran flight attendants were very nice. And nice at Orlando. I emailed them and asked about luggage. They emailed me back that they waive MAW luggage fees. Try to email them. If it's in your ticket info, they will automatically waive it!! Good luck.. we had 6 of us too

Talking Day 2 December 13, 2010

Day 2 Monday December 13, 2010
I set the alarm the night before since we had the naps, figured it would be good to get an early start. Afterall.... TODAY was THE day for Alli's WISH TO COME TRUE!! We were going to Islands of Adventure~ The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!

So the alarm goes off and I promptly get up and start to wake the older kiddos. Daddy stayed with the younger two. I guess this is a good time to say both Jonathon (4) AND Christopher (9 months) slept in the bed with us!! Thank goodness it was a King size bed. I am ready and figure the older two are almost ready. NO Allison is still in bed ASLEEP!!!! So I manage to get her up and we all get ready. We want to see Mickey and Minnie before Breakfast. We wanted to beat the crowd so we could eat and get to Harry Potter!!
Finally on our way to Julie's Safari Theatre.
We are about to meet Mickey and Minnie!! WOO HOO!!Here we are waiting in line

Jonathon meeting Mickey

Christopher meeting Mickey and Minnie

Family Shot

The kids.....



We start to leave and I hear "Amy" So I look over toward that direction... and I see "Bearshouse"!! We chatted a few minutes and out the door we go. Once outside we are surprised to see some more Disney favorites!! We stopped to say Hi and get some Pictures!





Off to the Gingerbread House we go!!






After breakfast, we headed to the van. Buttons, passes and directions in hand..... We are Ready To GO!!

NEXT STOP THE WIZARDING WORLD OF HARRY POTTER!!

Great start! I am looking forward to following your trip updates!

My daughter was diagnosed with Crohn's when she was 2 during a colonoscopy, after symptoms from 2 months and many, many tests. She will soon be 15, and is doing fabulously! *knock wood* It was rough going until about 5. Life is good!

YES! Allison was a bear that day to get up out of bed. We just found out that her cortisol levels were too low and it was make her EXTREMELY tired...but we had no time for that! Jonathon wasn't ready for the picture and he was pouting...

So glad your daughter is doing better. It certainly gives a mom hope when she reads that! Do you mind telling me, what if any treatments have worked?

Welcome to our trip!

I think I forgot to mention it was only in the 30's that day when we got up and moving... He was NOT happy about that and was quite moody the rest of the day. You will see it again in more pictures!

Day 2 December 13, 2010 Islands of Adventure.... Part 2

Day 2 Part 2

So off we go to Universal's Islands of Adventure!! The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!

Since I forgot to mention in my previous post, it was VERY COLD! We woke up to temps in the 30's and the high only mid to high 40's. Some of the coldest weather to hit Florida in a long time. Thank goodness I checked ahead and packed for warmer weather. We were all bundled and ready to go. Kids in the van.... Allison almost instantly falls asleep.

So after 20 minutes or so of driving, this is what we see.....




YAY! Everyone is starting to wake up more and the excitement is palpable in the air! Then we see....



We made it!! We pull up to the window, and all I have to do is show them our GKTW button and the gentleman says "Have a GREAT visit" And off we go to the Parking Garage. Things are going great...we aren't there at opening but that's ok. It's only 10 (they opened at 9) Get parked, the stroller out, the diaper bag and snacks get situated.... The kids are getting out, DH is putting Christopher in the stroller, he isn't having it so I decide to just "wear him". We get him all adjusted and ready to go. I get the camera out of the van AND DROP IT!!!! Yes, I dropped the digital camera as we are about to go into Harry Potter world for Allison's WISH!! UGH No worries, DH will fix it! He can fix everything! Yeah, not so much. It was broke! Good thing I had my cell phone and Alli had her little camera.

Not time to sulk, time to get on with the trip!! YAY We start walking to the park entrance. We get on the elevator, go down, walk for what seems like FOREVER. Keep walking some more.. and it's getting crowded. We get to the area they check your bags and we think we are about to get in. NO.. You enter in Universals City Walk (similar to DTD) and that is a large area too. Finally see the signs showing Left to ISLANDS OF ADVENTURE and right to UNIVERSAL STUDIOS. Off to the LEFT WE GO!!

We make it in, and our first stop... THE WIZARDING WORLD!! WOO HOO

Naturally on the other side of the park. ON the way we see the Grinch. Jonathon LOVES the movie and said he wanted to meet him.

We go in his Photo location. Jake and Alli see him (Jonathon REFUSES, another fit)

AND then the Grinch realizes Jonathon won't come over. This GRINCH acts just like in the movies!! WOWOWOWOWOW





Around a few more turns we see this.... HOGSMEADE!!



Apparently I have gone on long enough. Check out the next post

Day 2 December 13, 2010 Islands of Adventure.... Part 3

Day 2 Part 3

Almost there!! Alli is all


SO HAPPY


We see Hogwarts BEAUTIFUL!!


After seeing the look in her eyes and feeling the excitement that she was radiating, the rest of the day was just a bonus! Allison's wish was coming true! At this moment I felt so blessed!!!

I feel like I am rambling... am I dragging this on too long???

[COLOR="Purple"]So glad your daughter is doing better. It certainly gives a mom hope when she reads that! Do you mind telling me, what if any treatments have worked?

My daughter started on a 5-ASA (Dipentum) at diagnosis, but couldn't keep her symptoms in check. She was hospitalized for a flare, put on prednisone, which helped for a bit. Her symptoms continued so Flagyl was added, along with other meds. She was weaned off of prednisone after over a year by adding 6-MP and a probiotic, along with omeprazole. This was right when Enbrel was coming on the market. That was going to be her next med. She remained on the immunosuppresant (6-MP), probiotic and Dipentum and Omeprazole for years. As of last month, she is solely on Dipentum. Her colonoscopies show moderate inflammation from her stomach throughout her entire intestinal tract, but she *knock wood again* is not symptomatic and doing well. She repeats her upper gi-endoscopy again in April. Fingers crossed that all goes well!

How have things gone for your daughter?
