So, Monday night, no more double dare and Kids Night Out. But the Halloween party.
That is AWESOME news!!!! It was so much fun, just like the Christmas party! I was hoping they would continue that change! We had a BLAST!

I will be continuing praying for Lisa and family. I know she will be in good hands in Philly. Love and hugs
Kris (mom2mitokids) has two daughters who are prior Wish Children. She posted this on our TR and I wanted to post it here where more people would see it. They need continued prayers and so do we please. Thank you!

We have a couple that wanted to join us for a couple of days on our wish trip. Do you know if they would be able to stay in our villa with us at GKTW? They would pay for their own food and it would only be for 2 nights. Just wondering if anyone knows if this is a possibility.

Not sure if that is a possibility or not. If I remember I will ask the front desk about it tomorrow when I'm in the Village. But I do know that their 1st meal is free then it is $5 per meal per person.

Ok, I asked the Village about this tonight and they said that the only way they would be allowed to stay in the villa is if they get added to the wish. So you would have to call and ask your wish-granting organization. If they are added to the wish, then their food would be paid for. However, if they stay off-site, then they can still visit, but they would be expected to leave by 11:30 and their food costs would be $5 per meal per person.

Any previous wish trippers have any opinions about visiting US/IOA and SW? DS seems much more excited about SW and IOA than US. We thought about combining US/IOA in one day, do you think that's doable? Or would another strategy work better.

Our tentative schedule so far is:
Arrive Monday evening
Tuesday: Disney Park
Wed: Disney Park
Thursday: Sea World, then back for Winter Wonderland at GKTW
Friday: US/IOA
Sat: Disney Park
Sun: Check out/spend day at GKTW/return/get new rental car and check-in to resort

Also, any thoughts on which Disney parks to do on which day? I think we want to go to AK and DHS for sure the first week and are debating between MK and Epcot to save for the second week. We're super familiar with DL and MK is so similar-we're leaning towards Epcot but maybe that's a mistake because the kids will probably love it.

We're also going to be getting a rental car for the second week. Does anyone know if there's a way to just extend the rental instead of returning to the airport?

Thank you so much for finding this out for me! It will help us to better plan now. I still think it's cool that visitors can get one meal free and honestly, $5 for a meal isn't bad considering the cost everywhere else!

Semidates!
We know we are going sometime in the first half of February. Our grantor called us after my email to her and told us that Devon has been officially approved and if there were specific dates in February that we would like as it was our first choice. So I just need to verify with my dh if he has a preference and then we can get our official dates.

Your itinerary looks good. Our kids are not at all interested in Sea World, so we planned two days at Universal/IOA. I think DHS and AK can both be done in one day by reading other TR's. We are doing a 1/2 day at AK and doing the Christmas Party at the village that evening. Hollywood Studios, we are doing during our extended stay, but we are going early afternoon for a big lunch and staying late for the Osbourne Light show and Fantasmic.

Have you thought about MVMCP?? We are skipping this only because we had to buy an extra 2 day park tickets for our extended stay to get the Free Dining package. We have Magic Mickey hours one night until 11pm. Otherwise.. we would totally do the Christmas Party! That will give you entrance at 4pm until late and you can use the other ticket for Epcot.

Just some ideas.

I talked to our MAW Manager today about the rental car.. we have the same issue. He said our car is through National and so I booked our extended stay through them. I'm hoping they will just take our credit card and extend the car for the five days without us having to return it for a new car.

Things are coming together!! FOUR weeks!! Eeek.. Can't wait to see you guys at GKTW!

So it looks like instead of the first half of February it will be the second half. Daniel has a work thing we can't get around. So I called our grantor Alison back and gave her the news as well as let her know that our second choice of January was out the window. She is going to let us know soon if our dates in Feb have been approved.

Thanks for all the ideas. My kids are animal/ocean nuts so I think we have to do SW for sure. I think there's only a couple things Evan wants to do at US and a few things at IOA. Keira is just happy is she has a Caurosel to go on.

We have thought about MVMCP and it looks like it will be in the cards. We really want to see the Osbourne light show so we'll have to plan a late night for that.

Our car is through Avis so I'll do some rates research but it looks likely at least DH will have to do an airport switchout. Oh well, it shouldn't be too bad. One day closer!

I hope they get approved and you hear back soon. We went the end of January/early Feb. and it was awesome and not too crowded. That should be a great time!
