C (at 5 1/2) is going to love it, I think, but she is quite bookish and loves things like science and world cultures.
I think the fact that they're looking forward to Epcot will make a big difference. The biggest thing I've seen posted is that kids go to MK where there is so much geared for the younger kids, then expect Epcot to be the same way. Angel had her own wdw guide book for kids, and knew exactly what to expect. She really enjoyed the kidcot spots, and it sounds like C would too. Here's a link to a list of greetings for the different countries that C may enjoy learning http://www.disboards.com/showthread....+the+countries . You may need to limit the time at the Seas, Angel would happily have spent more time there.

That's awesome. We kept the trip a secret from our kids until the reveal 3 days before we left. It was awesome as it's the state highway patrolmen who run the wish project. So 4 troopers met us at pizza hut for lunch, the kids were absolutely shocked. It was great.

We could have had family come but it was during the week and people were working. It was nice to NOT have lots of people. I don't think the kids would have felt as connected to the patrolmanif there were family around. Plus they all got to sit in the patrol cars :-)

How exciting!! What a great way to find out he is going to Disney World! And you don't have to listen to him asking you everyday how much longer he has to wait

That is crazy that you have to go up to Baltimore before going down to Orlando Glad you have a direct flight on the way back though! I hear you about flying... I am trying not to think of that part. I flew cross country to NY a few years ago and I had to take something to calm down... Not sure if that would work this time with the kiddos.

Yay for having the flight info. It's crazy how connections can be so far off. Our first time flying we had no idea what we were doing, and had a connection in Minneapolis from Central IL. After that I made sure any connections took place south of us. Sounds like you have quite a distance to Baltimore from AL. Sorry you couldn't get a direct flight there. Praying about your flight anxiety.





Praying about your flight anxiety too Jackie.

Sorry to hear you won't have a direct flight on the way to Orlando. Hopefully you will all be so excited about the trip you won't worry about flying And Baltimore from AL? That's just plain silly!

I discovered that I have flying anxiety as well when my husband and I went on a trip in November - it's ridiculous, as I've probably flown on over 200 flights prior. I think the stress and worrying of the past year probably just caught up with me. I'm hoping that seeing Ja on her very first flight will distract me.

Aw, thank you! C will love that! She's gone through so much with her sister sick, that I'm really trying to think of special things for her. She's a great big sis!
What guide book did Angel have? The girls would LOVE their own book!
