Thank you forthe reminders about slowing down and enjoying the trip. I am a mega planner and we leave a month from tomorrow.....so excited! But I kept thinking what do we do each day, how do we fit it in. Perfect timing for the posts to just enjoy the trip and the simple things. We have never had a amiky vacation and I am so excited to be together!

Maroo, thanks for the reminder! I

Cheshire, thanks so much for chiming in!

I'm hanging in there. The stone fragments are passing with little to no pain, but I over did it this morning and feel exhausted.

It was worth it though. We had our first spring like day today and I took the kids to the neighborhood park for a picnic. WildMan slept, so Jenna and I got some great one-to-one time and she loved being outside so much.

I'm not a wish tripper or anything, but I just have questions. I'm writing a story based on an autistic girl who gets a trip to Disney world through a wish foundation. It's a made up on yet it's based of the sunshine foundation. My first question is on letters and how they are sent. By that I mean, how they are written. I want to have a good example for my character so that it is understandable and what not. Does anyone have any advice on this? An example would actually be helpful. I won't ask anyone o give me what thy sent for their child's letter unless they want to. I respect your privacy and personal matters.

You are free to read my story here. It's called Wish Upon a Star and it's about an autistic girl's first WDW adventure. ^_^

Hello!

I think I would make up a totally new name for a foundation rather than using either "Make a Wish" or "Sunshine Foundation" or anything else that has a copyright - since it is a fictional story.

Somewhere I have a post that I did with pictures about a teenage boy with autism that went to Disney for the first time. He has severe autism and loved Disney World. A foundation didn't send them - it was just a group of nice people that donated some money so that they could go.

He spoke in full sentences for the first time at Disney World and has been doing more and more things ever since he got back.

If you are interested, I can go try to find the post and put a link to it - it was pretty amazing thing to watch! He really connected with the Disney characters in a special way!

Okay. That might really help. I was thinking my character did that with Tiana, who happens to her favorite person ever.

Here is thread - it is full of great stories about how both children and adults with disabilities (including autism) have been affected by Disney.

Everyone on the Wish Trippers Thread would enjoy this thread! (But make sure you have a tissue handy!)



uh...I forgot to paste it!!

Here it is: Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust..."
