All families get a FREE PHOTOPASS CD! (Maroo is modest about this; however, she planted the idea for this with Disney).

Get as many Photopass pics as you can!!!!

Universal would give a free photo to the Wish Family...are they still doing that?

We got 1 free 8x10 at Universal.

With the magic perks of your Give Kids The World Button, you will:
• Receive free parking at all Walt Disney World Resort and SeaWorld theme parks.
•Show your parking voucher for free parking at Universal Orlando.
• Receive a free single stroller or manual wheelchair rental at all Walt Disney World Resort and SeaWorld Orlando theme parks.

We were able to get a free double stroller no problem at MK and Epcot.


• Pick up a stroller or wheelchair voucher from GKTW Guest Services for a free stroller rental at
Universal Orlando.(Copied from the Bunny Guide).

We used a stroller rented by MAW for us at Universal.

Take advantage of the Wish Lounges at Magic Kingdom and Epcot. Go in to rest, have a bottle of water and experience a place only a Wish Family can relax.

We went to both and were so thankful to use these quiet, uncrowded sanctuaried for a rest, changing area, and to get a drink!

Spend time at GKTW enjoying the fun and amenities!

Warning: somedays, your children will not want to leave GKTW to go to the parks!!

And as Maroo always says...WEAR YOUR GKTW button...you NEVER KNOW where the magic will strike!

Thanks

I 'm so sorry to hear DeAnna's new diagnosis! Does Deanna have an Ipad? or something like that?

No, we do not have one. I really do not know that much about them. I have a net book that I am planning to take to the hospital.

She plays the Disney webpage non stop. I thought someone might have ideas for other sites.

Does she have a webkinz? They are stuffed animals that have these special codes. You go to the webkinz website...put in the code, and then you take care of your pet there. Play games to earn money you can spend at the store to decorate your pets room. They are fun and gobble tons of time!

Webkinz if fun! You can spend a lot of time on that site (um I have heard ). Ok I have a webkinz LOL.

There is also a Disney faries site where you can create your own fairy and play games.

Matthew is getting sick. His bark cough started up and he is all congested. We are waiting for his doctor to send a new prescription in so he can get his nebulizer treatments. His lungs were clear all summer for once and know its starting to sound course. Then the ear infections will start up and so on. The season i dread the most fall and winter.

Jared's Make a Wish trip October 15-22 2011

I wish that I had found this sooner! We will be leaving in 9 days and there is so much that I could be learning!

My little miracle, Jared, is the reason we are going on this trip. He was born with only one, little, sick, kidney and was in kidney failure from birth. He received a kidney transplant just after he turned two. He is now 6 years old! I can't believe it! He is also hearing impaired and struggles a bit with everything, but his amazing little spirit is contagious! He is a blessing in our lives! And he is so excited to go to DisneyWorld!

Help!

I'm not sure what I am doing. I posted a new thread with our pre-trip info, but I don't think it is in the right place. Help!
