I was going to say to check this DIS Orlando hotel forum http://www.disboards.com/forumdispla...aysprune=&f=15
but I'd follow Sarah's suggestion first

I did a thread search for you, but there's nothing mentioned about FMLA. I hope someone can help with your question, and praying your job doesn't give you a hard time.

Sorry they weren't allowed to extend.

Some chapters allow extensions, but others don't.

Would a villa work for the rest of your family? I have rented one before on Seven Dwarfs lane, which is about 1 mile from GKTW - it had 4 bedrooms & 3 baths. I got it off VRBO and reviewed it on the Orlando board here on the dis.

Do you know what the price range is on them? We have seven kids so we already live on a tight budget. Having to buy park tickets for four of them is already going to be a miraculous feat, so we have to be very cheap on accommodations. Lol

I found this from a google search-
http://www.vrbo.com/238135ha

This one is a little smaller but offers a weekly rate
http://www.vrbo.com/140470ha

I am a little lost-Are you able to have a wish granted and not have the hotel included?

It's kind of confusing. My daughter was granted a wish which includes myself, my husband, and my three bio kids. My four step-children are on a 50/50 schedule. Since they don't live with us 100% MAW won't let them be included in the wish...even at our own expense.

So you are taking all the children and staying somewhere other than GKTW? I know you mentioned you wanted to be close to GKTW-but will the other children be allowed to partake in any of the events at the village? Or is the wish just park tickets for 5?

(not trying to be nosy just trying to figure out if I can help)

Sunday is supposed to be chilly (by Florida standards) about 60. The next 7 days start cool (57) and should reach the low 80's.

No, they won't let us stay anywhere else. So, myself and my three will be at GKTW and my husband and his four will stay somewhere else. They would let my husband stay with us, but somebody has to take care of the kids! So they will provide tickets for 5 of us. It doesn't look like the four will be able to participate in anything at GKTW. If MAW would add them as non compensated participants, then GKTW would let them stay, eat, and do everything. I guess that's what I don't understand. Our MAW wouldn't be out any extra money by just adding them as non compensated. We would still pay for travel and tickets.

ONE WEEK until DISNEY!!!! I posted a long over-due update to Savannah's PTR. It's actually a 3 parter with lots of great pictures including outfits, and package delivery from Kid's Wish Network. We're getting quite excited here. Check it out...

I think I need to rush all 7 of my kids to the ER. They seem to have all caught a serious case of the stupids. It started yesterday morning and still hasn't stopped. Just thought I'd share. If I go missing, check the mental hospitals. :-P

I hope you are able to get everything worked out. Why won't MAW add them so they can stay at GKTW so all you have to do is pay for airfare and park tickets? I know every chapter is different but it seems crazy they wouldn't let the kiddos stay at GKTW.

Yay!! I loved all the outfits and pics.



We are thinking of maybe doing Lego Land or Kennedy Space Center when we are on Trev's wish trip. Has anyone gone to either of these before? Any advice?

Thanks!
