Taliasmom good luck with everything. I hope all goes great.
You are talking about www.touringplans.com, right?

Let me know if you don't hear anything back and I will forward them the email they sent to me many moons ago! You can post here or PM me...

Yay for the countdown calender. It's never too early to start packing. We have some items that we only use on wdw trips, that just stay in the suitcase, and I've been adding things for this trip as I buy them.

So sorry about the re-interview, and that it's so far off Praying that it goes well, and that you will be going in July as planned.

Thanks, I'm praying too. I wrote that wrong though, lol, July last year was when we had our first interview (after being approved in may). We were supposed to go to gktw this spring (Talia is like most of our kids, heat sensitive), but if they are re-interviewing in late march, I don't see spring happening. I don't know that waiting till fall would be wise as she has a degenerative condition. Just gonna have to pray on it and wish on some stars

AND...it comes with an Application called "Lines" that has a chat feature that is highly addicting, too...I was in Disney with my cousin last year and "Lines" helped us find out that the New Fantasyland was opened - which was priceless info for us - and they could give you guys info like this on your trip, too. Not that a MAW family really needs to worry about Lines at Disney, though!! It does help every family to avoid the CROWDS, though!
Thanks! I will look into it and see if I can get a discount at least. That Lines app sounds fun!

OK ... so I do NOT do well with anticipation! I check my email every hour, just to see if we have dates yet! Logically, I know that we only met with them 7 days ago and that they need to get approval from the doctor before they can schedule anything, but I can't wait!!! I want to know so that I can schedule our character meals and try to get an appointment for BBB. I want to know so that I can try to contact someone at Disney to share Maddie's wish to actually be in the parade. I want to know so that I can find cute things for her to wear and start a Countdown for her. I just want to know!!!! Sorry ... vent over! Maddie, on the other hand, seems to be handling the wait just fine. She looks at youtube videos of GKTW and WDW and talks about eating ice cream for breakfast and "catching a big fish." She's excited, but patient. Me? Not so much!

I think that pretty much sums up how today is going. Ugh.
Could use some anti-sniffle vibes heading in this direction, please. Ja is home with a runny nose and is feeling just good enough to drive me up the wall and just bad enough to make me want to snuggle her nonstop.

Hi everyone. I didn't get a personal response back from touring plans but they sent me a link to my email with a complimentary membership! Wow! I just went to the website, hit contact us and said we were a MAW family going in April and that I was on this forum and wondered if there was still a discount on members for MAW families. So please email them too.
Mom2mo7.... Totally understand!, hope you et your dates soon.
Even having our dates I am so excited. Sometimes I think more excited than my kids because I know Disney IS and the kids don't fully get it. I can't wait to see their faces!

No, you wrote it right, I just misunderstood Did you explain that to them? Maybe they would do the interview sooner? I do know that I've seen some trips happen very quickly, so it could still happen this spring.

Awesome!!! I think I will do the same thing!!

I also feel the same way about going to disney. My kids just dont quite understand how awesome it is going to be. But we do...and its SO EXCITING!!! Plus I am just over the moon that we FINALLY get a vacation!!! After all the hospital stays, and sickness, and doc offices, and everything else...we get to leave that all behind and have a stress free vacation. This is our first vacation ever and its just the best kind of vacation to have!!!!
