To lakinbum93, I won't be in Disney when you are and don't have a "wish kid" but would love to send a card and pin from Michigan if you need it. Just p.m. Me and I will get it sent.
I hope everyone planning trips has a wonderful time and I can't wait to hear about your adventures!

So glad you had a magical time!! Welcome back!

Every year our the Make A Wish Foundation of Iowa, along with other local sponsors, has an event called Jolly Holiday Lights. They have been doing it for as long as I can remember. It is a giant holiday light show set up through one of our big public parks. It is open from the week of Thanksgiving until Dec 31. People volunteer to take the admission, $10 per car, and all proceeds go to the Make A Wish foundation of Iowa. It is a great holiday tradition in town and every year the lights are set up like different characters, themes etc. It takes about 10 to 15 min to drive through the entire park. Last year they raised enough money for 30 wish trips! This year we were invited along with some other make a wish families to "light" the jolly holiday lights. The kids were given magic wands to wave around and "turn on" the holiday lights. This is a photo of my boys that our wish representative shared with me. After the reception/party we were able to drive through the park and enjoy the lights before it opened to the public.

What a wonderful event to be a part of and a great way to celebrate the season.


I wanted to say to all of my Wishtrip friends:

I would do the Wish star as early in the week as possible. That way, you can come back to the Castle and see it without having to rush on the last day to see it.
