Laurie -

With your change of dates you will be in the parks at the same time as us. It would be fun if our families could meet up at some time.

Thank you so much for posting the dates on here. I am super excited, since Iwas afraid we might have to miss the parties with our back and forth between dates. Sorry Shy has so many allergies, soy and milk is hard and I really hope you can find a good nutritionist. How about oats and corn. Chex (the cereal is gluten free) I tried the honey chex and it was pretty good. I hope it all works out for you. My friend is still waiting for her check also.

I'm glad they are starting on Sept 30, I really wanted to avoid the first party......so hopefully the 2nd night (especially being on a Monday) won't be too busy!!!

We're working our way thru the allergy thing......just gonna take us being very careful. Oats & corn both seem ok.

Has she even received a letter from the IRS?? It sounds like they've mailed letters to people telling them either they need more documentation or they're reviewing the stuff.....we haven't gotten anything yet.

I read somewhere that it would take 18 weeks..........I'd just like to see something telling me that I am FOR SURE getting this & estimated time to see the check in the mail. Its the unknown that worries me!!!

Hey Laurie - I have been MIA from the boards for a while (need to get over to the Diva thread) but glad to see you have dates! And it looks like we will be at the Halloween Party on the same night!! I am currently confirming with my girlfriends but Mon 10/3 would be when we would go! Love to meet your family!

Take care!

I'm not sure if she has gotten anything yet, she has not said a thing about it recently. Though she goes to school with me and we've had finals, plus she had surgery yesterday and I still haven't heard from her. She has a tendency not to do well with anesthesia, so I am a bit concerned. I'll let you know when they hear something.

Ok thanx......so much unknown from everyone I talked with....I guess we'll get it when we get it (if we get it.....lol) If we don't this trip will not be happening......so fingers crossed the IRS will come thru!!

Hope your friend is doing ok!!

It says on the AP site that the Advance Purchase can be done up till the day before as long as there are tickets available

Sorry to hear you will be dealing with all kinds of Allergies! My friend I am taking to DL next month is allergic to Wheat, Dairy, Eggs as the main things and I know Oat is another... She says not to worry about where we eat but I am still concerned she will be able to have enough choices. Especially at the character meals...

You can call ahead & speak with a chef that can go over some things before you arrive. If you call Disney Dining, they'll transfer you to one of the head chefs or they'll give you a phone # to call. Leave a message & it usually takes up to a week for a phone call back.....but they are a wealth of info & made us feel at ease prior to our summer trip.

Also, EVERY place you eat at, ask to speak with the manager due to food allergies, either the manager will come out & they have a book with all the ingredients listed for every item OR the chef will come out. The chef made a special plate for Shyann every meal (at no charge!). We were warned, not to take any of the CM's word on allergy free stuff as they are wanting to help but are not always trained to give that advice. The chef we spoke to said they've had 2 incidents where the CM wanting to be helpful gave advice & it ended up having something in it that cause a bad reaction.

Disney is great with working with special dietary needs & are ready to help, so don't feel you're putting someone out. There are tons of choices as long as you know what's safe!!!

Laurie -

Spoke with my friend today and she is feeling better, Thanks. The additional paper work they have been asking for is the subsidiary paper work (agreement and/or paystub) indicating the children are special needs. If you filed this information with your return they probably won't need anything. They keep getting told it is in processing.

After debating & going over everything.....we've decided to go back to the HoJo for our trip. We were going to book thru Disney Travel & stay at the Residence Inn-Maingate but we were really concerned about the walk. Anthony & Addy will be dragging as it is & then ask them to walk half-mile plus back to the motel might have been an issue. So we're going back to the HoJo's where we know what to expect, what we love & truly feel confident in our decision.

So we are booked for 2 Premium Disney View Rooms. We are in contact with the manager to confirm we get connecting rooms......can't be in side-by-side that will not work for us.

Next post will be some pics from our stay last summer!!
