She is really excited. She's old enough to plan & research herself, and did a lot of that all summer - so she actually knows more about DCL than I do at this point.

Jen So happy that Victoria gets her wish. It's a big forum, filled with info, but there are so many wonderful people who can help you navigate through it. Good luck with that goal - I found myself visiting certain sections daily, even when we didn't have trips planned.

Wow - I've missed a lot! But I'm back now. And THRILLED to report that Matthew does NOT have leukemia like his transplant docs had previously thought. We are working with getting him better and his counts up. His energy is returning a little more every day, and I am grateful to have him up and running again.
Just wanted to extend a warm welcome to all the newbies out there! Let's go those PTR reports started up so we can do some reading! Congrats on all those that have met their wish granters recently. It's a great feeling. And I'm so excited to get back on the board and get back in the swing of things again. It will take me a few days to catch up on all the reports, but I will. I promise! I look forward to the evenings of looking at pictures, reading plans and just being excited for all.
tootles for now!

Yay for Victoria! I bet she is excited. Any idea what her wish will be? And this site is really easy to become addicted to. I've been reading posts for about a year but since our wish trip is coming up soon I'm on here almost daily now.

I know, I go way over board with planning for vacations. I even have seperate envelopes for each day with note cards and a schedule! I research everything and find deals and tips. It is sooooo hard not to know! You can always organize and plan your packing! At least you know what you need to take!

there is a new beasts castle which is a restraunt. we saw Gaston by there.
there is the new little mermaid ride which is very good if you are a fan and Ariels grotto where you can chat with ariel in private.

its the belle visit that is unique- and yet not an autograph kind of visit. you see her fathers workshop and go thru a magic mirror. then a cast member picks people to play part of the story of when beast and belle fell in love. the costumes are cardboard or plastic props to hold. they help you act out the story with belle. the take photos during and on exit with each actor with belle and you get a special photo pass card with all the photos. you can add it to your free photo pass at home so no worries. you can also take photos.

more and more of the charachters are inside so you really do need to consult a guide book or times guide to find them.

we barely got home and Molly was in the hospital but she is better now.

Thank you so much for the info. Sounds wonderful!

So sorry Molly was in the hospital, but that is great she is better now. My fear of that happening.

Even though my daughter loves my mom, I decided that it was best for my daughter if it was just her and I. That way I could focus completely on her and not worry about my mom and pleasing her. I wouldn't feel relaxed if she came, especially for a week. I do feel bad about my decision, but I know its the best decision. Plus my mom complained about having to fly to Orlando and lug all of my daughters' stuff when I mentioned Orlando was an option, so that made my decision easier, but still.

I really want to plan everything or at least have a list so my daughter doesn't miss anything at all. I am trying to treat this as a once in a lifetime trip, but am getting no where with the planning. LOL! Not knowing everything makes it really tough to.

Good luck!! Hope you all have a WONDERFUL time!!

Yay for no lukemia! We went through a brain tumor care (one of many medical debacles that I try not to think about!) It was definately one of the lowest points in our journey.

We had the meeting with the wish granters and heard back that she got her wish for Disney World. Waiting to hear on dates but shooting for January because she really can't handle heat. I am kind of kicking myself because my kids both really want to stay at GKTW and we didn't make it part of our wish so I am worried they will put us up somewhere different which will be a letdown for both my kids I think.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone!
