Tommy loves the Cars movie and Mickey Mouse. Our daughter K made a paper chain to count down the days until we go. Our older children are researching water parks.

Our kids are also excited about the cookie cart. I did just read though that someone never saw it. I am wondering if GKTW serves enough food to keep my 6'2" 17yo son full.

Tommy's wish party is Dec 10.

So after 2 weeks of fun and excitement today will be our final park day. We have decided to go to Hollywood Studios again as this was our favourite disney park. We also havent been on toy story mania, rock n rollercoaster or seen fantasmic so it was kind of a must do!

Hollywood studios will be the only disney park we have been to twice on this holiday as we thought Universal was out of this world and ended up at the studios twice and the islands 3 times. I think the fact that we are all potty about potter kinda made the decision to go back there even easier!
It sounds like you had a fantastic time!! We are planning a couple days at Universal because it looks so great!! We too are Harry Potter fanatics!

I am pretty sure it is the same whether you stay on site or not. You get the same packet and park tickets and have orientation at GKTW!

I have no idea where to even begin.

My son Jayden was born at 34 weeks gestation on July 26, 2004 with a CHD called Tetralogy of Fallot. He has undergone open heart surgery and countless other procedures in the past 7 years. He still faces the challenge of having just 1 pulmonary valve and will have to have a replacement at some point.
Jayden has an ID brother named Jesse who was born healthy and with a unlimited amount of patience and love for his brother.

I have so many questions running around my head and each time I think about it I get teary eyed and overwhelmed ! I can't believe this is happening to us.
I'll be hanging around here a lot trying to gather as much info as I can to make the most out of this extraordinary opportunity.

Welcome fellow heart mom!! My son was born with HLHS and we leave for his trip in 12 days. Feel free to ask any questions you have!

Hi! I just wanted to know if you have to be someone who sews to be a part of The Big Give stuff? I love reading about the Make A Wish kids, and would love to be able to grant them some pixie dust and Disney magic, but I'm not that great at sewing (yet!) Is there somewhere that I need to look to find out about it? I've seen other Big Give stuff that isn't necessarily sewn, so that gives me hope!

Dev is still in the dark about when we are going. He still thinks September of 2013! It will be great when they come over to finalize everything and tell him the real date.

That's great that you want to join in the Big Gives! I only do pixie dust since I don't sew. Once you sign up through the link below, you can post to introduce yourself and there's a forum that gives suggestions to the type of pixie dust you can send to the MAW families.

need 4day Dis tickets?....

As we have posted we are headed on Lindsay's MAW trip leaving Dec 23rd driving but I don't have details from MAW yet. From what I have read, even though Lindsay wished to stay on property we still will need to go to orientation at GKTW (yah! That means we get to see how cool it is ...anyway, my question is, from what I have read on this thread, tickets consist of 3 day Disney park hoppers+Univ & SW. If we want to do an additional day at Disney and need a 4 day park hopper, can we also pay to do that at GKTW or can we do that at Disney or will I have to purchase a new ticket for each of us? From what I have researched it would be cheaper to upgrade a 3day to a 4day than to purchase a 1 day ticket for each of us. Just asking so I know how much $$$ to plan on Thanks in advance to whoever might know!!! Happy Thanksgiving!

Thats a good question. Jayden doesn't really have any interest in Sea World. We went there a few years ago and he didn't really care for it.
I'd rather spend 4 days in WDW and 2 days in Universal .. if I can upgrade the 3 day that would be perfect.

It is my understanding that you cannot upgrade the 3 day ticket to a 4 day as they are comp tickets. Go to GKTW and click on families and there is a guide that discusses options.

I asked about upgrading from a 3 day to a 4day ticket and the answer was nada. You have to purchase a new 1 day ticket. Another option is to buy tickets to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. They are less expensive than a 1 day park ticket and you can enjoy Magic Kingdom from 4pm- midnight (or 1am) depending on the day. Just an idea.
