I found Disney bottle caps at Joanns for 40% going to glue a magnet on, for the key ring I'm going to sew it and put a ring on. The Mickey charms for necklaces I found on Ebay 12 for $5.00 then I plan to find some type of black string to put it on. Oriental Trading Company has a lot of neat pirate toys for cheap as well.
I did see some of the ideas on the thread and some are way to much $ plus we won't have a lot of extra room in suitcases. I thought all of these would be small.

We did our first Walk for Wishes event yesterday and while some folks raised thousands of dollars, we managed to raise $835.00. I was quite happy!! I figure every little bit helps! For those who don't know, the average cost of a wish in our city is $6,000! There are MANY truly ill children waiting on their wishes in our area, so I am happy to do my part to give back. Lisa's wish trip was a magical time and I want other families to experience that.

Hi Melissa. What is this for, and what is the homemade site for? Is it for some purpose, or just personal family ideas to do with their/for kids? Sorry for being nosy.

yesterday must have been a day for wishes! I particapted in the hair challenge event for our local Make-A-Wish yesterday and I chopped off my ponytail after collecting pledges. I wish we could have raised more but we deff fought for every cent we got, $371! I am mst proud of the fact that Kyra worked thru the pain and went door to door with me and wouldnt stop until she filled a pledge sheet each time!. Congrats on an awesome amount for your local organization!

On the Disney Cruises you can make a fish extender to hang outside your stateroom door. Then there are boards to sign up for gift exchanges. You make or buy fun things to exchange with other people that participate. Not nosy at all!

My son is the same way. I've been using the internet a ton to share photos and videos of experiences we will have. He doesn't do well in unfamiliar situations or in loud crowded places. Although he is getting better with that the pictures and videos I have found on youtube have really seemed to help.

Thanks! Those are great ideas. I was getting a little worried when I saw some of the expensive gifts people were putting together. It sounds like a lot of fun to participate but money and suitcase space is something we need to keep in mind too.

We have been doing ALOT of youtube videos and the gktw website is almost always open on the comptuer so if she wants to look around she can.

Love all the giving back things to MAW! You are brave on the hair! We are actually coming back from our Thanksgiving camping trip a day early to make sure we have dinner at a local pizza place that is donating it proceeds to MAW from that day. (Don't tell the hubby but this isn't much of a sacrafice for me. I hate leftovers, cold weather camping and missing black friday!)

So I have a MAW question, We have been to Disney before with the GAC and found we still needed to wait in the regular line for a lot of the attractions and use fastpass. Does doing it as a wish trip change any of this? Also, if anyone knows, do we get to use the extra magic hours if we are staying at GKTW?
