Angel's wish granter just called to say Angel's wish is being granted. She didn't have specifics, but said she knew it was a 5 (we know that isn't the Fantasy). We are very grateful that she is being granted a wish, but it was still very disappointing to find out that she won't be able to have her specific wish. We took it harder than we expected.

So glad that they are granting her wish! That was quick! Sorry that it isn't the cruise that she wanted. Not sure how the chapters decide what ones they send you on.

WE get there at 5 pm. So far Friday is supposed to be 75 high and 48 low. I don't have a set plan at all. I see the park hours are super late and we are thinking of Magic Kingdom on Friday. That is such a huge fluctuation in termperature that I can't figure out how to pack for it. 48 is very cold to us. 75 is jeans and tshirts. We are seriously considering skipping Universal altogether. I just don't think there will be a lot for my DD to do. I really need to put together an autograph book. Although, I don't think it is anything my kids will care about, it sounds like it is a huge part of the Wish experience.

WHen do you get there and what is your plan?

Belated Christmas present for our family! I was literally in the middle of updating Savannah's PTR when Kid's Wish Network called to let us know that they would be granting Savannah's wish. The last time I posted was when we got the news that Make A Wish Foundation was denying Savannah a wish. I had resigned myself to doing our best to making a special trip for her to Disney on our own and so I had put together a Christmas morning surprise reveal of our trip. I was creating a post with photos when Kid's Network called. To see the surprise photos and read the news please visit our PTR here...

Merry Christmas All!!!

Amber, that is awesome that another wish granting organization stepped up to the plate! You must be so relieved! At least that is how I think I would feel! You kiddos are adorable. I had grand plans of making a bunch of customs for my whole family for our trip and so far I have pulled off a (very cute) skirt for my DD and that is it! Oh well. Maybe next week I will be able to get some stuff done. I can definately make DS an matching t-shirt with a tie. Seeing your photos reminded me that I had planned on doing that!

Have a great trip

Wish granter wasn't sure if it was 5 day or 5 night, we assume it's 5 day. It's just discouraging, cause they grant much more extravagant wishes, and even encouraged her to ask for something like Australia. She wasn't trying to get a longer cruise, she picked this one based on what it offered. They say that just knowing they can make a wish brings happiness & hope to the child (and it did - researching the cruise activities made her happy, and helped her get through all of the disappointments all summer). What they don't say is how it feels to find out that you don't get what you wished for (broke my heart when she told me she wishes she had never made a wish, because it hurts so much now).
