Thank you for sharing the video, it is beautiful. My heart is heavy for all the hurting families right now, hopefully they will be able to find peace soon.

Sunday is our arrival also, we can hardly contain our excitement. Braden is taller than his countdown chain so it's becoming very real for him. I think our plane is suppose to land at 11:15 and we've planned to just hang out at the village and relax the first day. It's weird to think that this time next week we'll be trying to get Braden to nap so he can go to MNSSHP that evening!!

I'm not quite sure, but I think I was reading the PDF brochure on the GKTW website (there's a family section, click on that, takes you to another site, then there's a spot that has their Guide online. In there I think I saw the info about shuttles to the parks.

Which airline is this?

call GKTW and ask if they will do a private orientation or at least a mini one so you can get your button. I bet they will

we leave in ten days 10/19 so if any of you see me while you are there come see if I still have mickey bracelts. My gorgeous Chinese daughters should help you pick us out

I have been giving my kids little packets of treats and stuff for the trip every ten days. we call them bonus days. Today was the last day and they got sunglasses and gift cards to spend at disney. pretty exciting stuff!

what I cant figure out is how I thought I could ever have so many appointments these last two weeks and get another thing done. UGU. at least none of them should be bad news appointments except maybe the orha dontist telling me M needs braces....but that is just normal stuff.

Let GKTW know that you have plans that night and they will work with you. I'm sure that will find someone to give you an orientation and get you everything that you need.

It is a Federal Rule that any piece of luggage that is exclusively medical supplies and equipment is considered outside of all normal limitations for both checked and carry on baggage and is no charge.

When I travel by air I have all my medical supplies and equipment in a backpack which I carry on board, the basket and charging unit of my ECV which I carry in another bag, and then my computer case.

On a trip of only a few days I have those two, gate check my ECV, and have a regular carry-on suitcase for clothes and other stuff.

Thank you, all, for your kind words and prayers for David and his family. He and his big sister got to go trick-or-treating at Abby's school this afternoon and they were dressed as Woody and Jessie! SO CUTE!! I heard David was pretty tired but he still had some smiles and, I saw that he met Cinderella! Christmas is on Saturday. We have lots of gifts (LOTS!), a live tree that will be planted in the yard so the family can decorate it every year, should they choose, to honor (or...remember) David. Praying for clear skies (it's supposed to rain) and a happy and strong David. Snow is in the forecast (it's being driven up by a company in Houston- being met halfway by some wonderful people b/c something fell thru and the co doesn't have the manpower to send someone on a 8 hr round-trip drive)! I won't be there to see it, but I can't wait to see the pictures!!!!

It's simply wonderful how communities of people come together for one child. Kind of takes a bit of the sting (I hit the "k" first to spell "stink" and, well, it STINKS too!) out of things.

I've seen lots of posts from various heart families on Facebook about sweet Mia.

Hugs and blessings to all of you.

For those about to head off on your trips, HAVE A SPECTACULAR TIME!!

I can't believe there is only 1 month and 1 day left til we leave! Goodness...In all the preparation for David's big day, my Disney focus has been off. At least I have been fretting about something big instead of a bunch of nit-picky things that, in the end, won't make or break our trip! Fretting...Ok, I'm trying not to fret. Focusing on the positive and breathing in and soaking every minute of my little boy up b/c he's just too precious not to

I was told that the same rules as regular park hours apply. Obviously they say the button does not help with meet and greets but I have heard other families say that if you get the right CM they will let you skip the line. What night are you guys going? We are going Tuesday! There are going to be quite a few board members there it seems.

I also read a lot of families get to the front of the lines with characters but that's not an issue I was just curious. We are going on Sunday. I can't wait I think I'm more excited then the kids lol. Now I have to get packing.

I know! I am at work today and can barely stand it!!! I have most everyting packed but the hubby and I's clothes. The characters are probably the most important part to my kids. That is all they have talked about lol
