Let me first appologize for not being on here for the last week. Let's just say that life with 3 young kids can sometimes be an adventure in itself.

Liam has a follow up appointment tomarrow and hopefully his lung functions and weight is up. Good news is that my weight is down. I have lost 6 pounds since starting to walk. It has encouraged me to watch what I eat and keep up with the walking. Pictures of Disney and Disney Music on my mp3 has also helped.

We started up Disney Movie Nights at my house again. I just decided on watching a movie since the other kids were not going. I don't want to cause any problems of jealousy. I have told them all that they will be going on a special birthday when they are older, but sometimes younger kids don't understand the concept of later.

I was going to do it once a week, but since our next movie from Netflix came on Sat, Liam wanted to see it right away. So if it all works out we will be doing movie's on Sat/Sun and Weds.

Our first movie last week was The Jungle Book. It was cute because it had all the kids standing up and dancing to The Bare Necessities.

Than we watched Meet the Robinsons on Sunday. Liam loved the dinosaur.

We are planing on watching Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest tonight.

Just read through your PTR...all of your plans sound great! It's wonderful that you get to take a trip with Liam. I'm sure it will be an amazing time for the both of you. I've also watched three of the Disney Parks movies on Instant Netflix already Happy Planning...and good luck with Liam's new treatment!

So let me tell everybody about my box.
It is what me and Liam call our special box.
Our Walt Disney World Box.

It doesn't look like much
Matter of fact I need to buy a bigger one
(Can anyone say Disney Stickers)
But don't let looks decieve you
Inside is cramed
(Yes cramed, I did say I need a new box)
With things going to Dinsey
and things from our last Trip

What's inside:
Well lets take a look!!!
Dopey will be our tour guide this afternoon!

First we have the purell, moleskin, blister bandaids, and wipes(cars theme)

Next we have rain ponchos
Blue for Liam and Yellow for me.
No getting lost in the crowd for us
We also have some safty pins (JIC)
and some luggage tags with the Cystic Fibrosis symbol on them
Hey, any way to promote awareness of the disease.


Next we have the autograph books.
We got the inner pages from some where in here
But made the covers our selves.
Why 2?
Well one for Disney and one for SWW of course.

Next is a group of buttons we got during our last visit
No they are not going with us
But full of memories

In this picture you see various lanyards
One has a special pocket just for the GAC
Great way to wear pins and not put holes in our cloths.
We also have a set of light up ears
Only $2 at our Disney Outlet store
Plus we have our old tickets from last trip
Memories
And some Cast Appriciation Cards that I printed up

Last but not least we have our green folder
(think it needs some Disney bling)
It is full of our plans
Including E-tickets and confirmation numbers
I need to get some doctor info and put it in here as well


Well that's it for now
Hope you enjoyed your tour
and come back and join us any time

The Disney World box is a great idea! It also reminds me that I need to get more organized

To be honest, the main reason we have it is because I feared that I might lose something if I didn't keep it all together.

Hi Corrine!!! Here I am joining in on your fun!! You do the same thing I do except instead of a Disney box I have a designated Disney carryon that has all the stuff I can pack so far like our lanyards, glow sticks, toiletries, etc. Your trip is getting so close!! Lucky you!

Listening you talk about Liam reminds me of all the doctors and everything I've been through with Victoria. It's so hard to have a sickly child, but we have the strength and the love to keep on going, right??

I look forward to reading your updates as you post them!!!

So let me start by saying that when I booked my trip
I didn't get the room I would have liked
To be honest Liam and I are not entirely into Sports
Would much prefer All Star Movies or Pop Century
But alas it wasn't in the cards
Neither option was available with the Kids Stay for Free Program

I haven't thought much of it the last couple of weeks
But with alot of people get FD pins I was curious
Could I afford an upgrade to a moderate if I got a pin
Well, I haven't got a pin (and probably won't at this point)
And running the numbers it wouldn't change the numbers that much if I switched from KPFF to FD.
That got me looking at the other value resorts
Primarily Pop Century
They had Prefered rooms available
After much thought
I relized that the upgrade was worth it to be closer to the bus stop and pool
Due to Liam's medical condition.
So I am happy to say
I just got off the phone and we are staying at
POP CENTURY!!!!

Hello! Joining in! I'm trying to follow a bunch of June trips this year because we just began planning a BIG June/July 2012 trip! Your kiddos are adorable! Your plans are looking good!
Your shoe box is funny becuase.......we have one of those too for all that little stuff.
Glad you got a fantasmic package booked. I know we're going to book one for sure as it will be a busy week.

Can't wait to hear more about your plans!

Hi Corrine! Are you taking Disney's Magical Express to the resort?? Our plane arrives in FL at 11:00 and we're taking DME to Pop. We could possibly be on the same bus to the resort if you're using DME too!
