This thread has tons of great info on the first few pages.

I'm going to do my best to do a great TR after we get back from our trip. We leave in 21 days! It's going by so quick. When we got Keira's dates we started at 47.

I don't have our days planned to the minute, but I've got a pretty good plan of what we'll be doing each day. I do have my meals planned though. Hopefully your Wish Coordinator can tell you how much to expect per meal, per person. Made it really easy for me. We're doing 6 ADR's on our trip, 4 character meals and 2 grown-up meals. LOL! Some quick service and we plan on eating dinner at the village 4 of the 6 nights we're there.

Anyone know if you can get tickets to Atlanta Braves spring training games from GKTW?

Spring training starts the last full day we're there. I love the Braves & DH loves the Tigers and they happen to be playing each other that day.

I'm not sure if GKTW will get any or not. I will ask the manager on duty tomorrow night while I'm there. I doubt it though.

I figured it was a long shot, but if you find out that'd be great. We'll have to squeeze it in if we can get them.

Thank you! I appreciate it!

Just wanted to post here without going into too much detail. For those of you who remember MitoDadMO, please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow (Feb. 7th), it is Kade's birthday. I will be getting a rose and leaving it on his paver tomorrow. It's going to be rough.....

Their family will be in my thoughts and prayers. I could not imagine having to go through the things they have experienced. Hugs to them.


We are waiting for Austin's dates ( super excited!). We asked for some combination of the last 2 weeks of January 2013. They just need the form from the Dr to approve traveling then they will try and coordinate the dates. I will post them as soon as we get them!

We get our luggage tomorrow! Now I can actually pack now and figure out what we are still short on. I can't handle little piles of this and that everywhere, because despite my best intentions they don't stay little piles of this and that and become scattered. I am not the most organized person so pray for me.

I usually set the luggage out and opened a few days before and start tossing things in as I remember. I usually buy new packages of socks for the boys, I just love new socks ! Plus I start planning their outfits a few months before and like to match their outfits with the parks (and each other ).
Then I start going down the list .. toothpaste, ponchos, deodorant, sunblock, water wings .. etc
I also go through each day, morning you need soap, shampoo, conditioner, socks, underwear, pants, shirt .. etc .. until nighttime .. pj's, lotion .. you get the idea. I know it sounds weird .. but it really helps me to organize !
I think getting everything ready causes the most stress .. I start having weird dreams, like forgetting to pack, or forgetting my luggage .. weeks before we leave.

LOL! I'm going to start packing this weekend I think. At least I'll be packed and I can get some things ready for the kids with the exception of the Big Give stuff they keep getting.

We'll be 2 weeks out on Monday, my son's birthday party is the Saturday before we leave, so I don't want to leave anything last minute.

Those of you have been on a trip lately, did you get charged for your luggage by the Airline?

MAW provided us with $25 per bag, but I was wondering too, does that cover our bags for both ways if we have to pay? Should I set aside another $100 to cover our bags for the return trip?

I haven't flown in 3 years and i was in the Air Force the last time I did, so our bags were all covered.

What airline are you taking?
When in doubt, contact your chapter. If anything, your bags will be heavier on the way back with all the souvenirs you'll be bringing back.
