Hi,
I posted a few questions on my PTR, should I post them here too? I would like some feedback from some GKTW Alumni, wondering whether some tentative plans are worth it and if we'll still have time for GKTW evenings without being utterly exhausted!

Absolutely, you can post those questions here as well!

Copy and Pasted from my PTR:

So I have a few questions;

Aquatica: should we be planning on that or wait and see. I read a post saying they were freezing the whole time and I think it was a Nov/Dec time that they were there. We'll be there the first week of Dec.

Also, Gaylord Palms ICE: Has anyone been there and do you think it is worth it. We live in MT so we are used to 9 degrees so that shouldn't be a problem.

What 2 could we do in the same day:
Sea World (wish)
LegoLand
Busch Gardens
Aquatica (if we decide to do this)

Or are all of those all-day parks? We aren't needing to consolidate but we also don't want to be disappointed that we planned for a whole day but didn't need to.

We are planning to spend most evenings at GKTW to get as much as we can out of it.
THANKS!

New here :)

Hello all! I am new to these boards and have got to say the amount of resources you have available is above and beyond amazing. Being someone who is OBSESSED with planning ahead I appreciate all of the hard work you all have put into this. <3
My daughter, Aly, is 3 years old and has a severe congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Our sweet girl has had 4 open heart surgeries but is doing great! We just recently got the letter that her wish to go to Disney World has been granted by Make A Wish! (I was really sweatin' her back up wish- a toy shopping spree at the dollar store- lol). We are still waiting on a date but I am so excited and wanted to get a jumpstart on planning. I will probably be spending every spare moment this weekend reading about all these others trips! Thank you all so much for sharing your stories!
Anyways, I don't have any questions yet but I just wanted to introduce myself. I look forward to getting to know you all!

Jenny

We've gone a few times later in Dec., and the weather can be just about anything - one week we had an overnight low of 35 one day (it was warmer back home in IL), and then a high of 80 just a few days later.

Jenny I'm also one who likes to plan ahead, and these boards have been invaluable in our trip planning. So sorry Aly, and your family, has been through so much. So happy that her wish is being granted. Her back up wish made me smile.

I am so glad sweet Aly gets her wish!! I am a heart momma too to a 7 year old. I can't wait to hear all about the planning! We are going sometime in May/June during Star Wars Weekend.

Our trip is so close!! Woohoo!!!

I was wondering if anyone had any advise, I realize the new fantasyland isn't open yet but I see so much of people going in. Do you think they will let MAW families in to see it? Just wondering????

I would like to know as well. We will be there in a few weeks. Where is Fantasyland at? I'm guessing inside DisneyWorld?
