If you have multiple Photopass cards, you can go to the photo shop at one of the parks before you leave and they will merge them all into one account.

For stickers ahead of time, check out the card area, party supplies area or the toy area of a local store. They may have better selection of Disney stickers than a scrap booking store will have. The selection there is most likely to be princesses and most recent movie, so not the Disney classic characters.

Once you get to the parks, many CMs carry around rolls of Mickey stickers. These are round and about 2 inches or so in diameter. If you bring something to carry them in so they don't get bent, you will have some nice Mickey stickers for your scrapbook.

Thank you so much I never thought of the party supplies its cause its so difficult here in quebec cause mostly everything is french so colouring books , shirts,plate are usually written in french even our dolls talk in french some stores carry english only but it is very minimal.
my children are bilingual but at home they talk english and watch tv in english so when my younger son hears a buzz lightyear in french he looks at it strange

At the orientation for GKTW, they will give you a letter which will give you instructions on how to redeem the card. Disney pays for it for Wish Families. You don't even have to pay shipping! It is a good deal - worth over $150 to the families.

It works at the character lines where there is a photographer - you give them your card (**MAKE SURE YOU TELL THEM YOU ARE A WISH FAMILY**) and then they take pictures. They may take dozens of pictures at each character spot - so you may have hundreds on there when you get home.

Then when you get home you can go on the website and put in the numbers from the back of your photopass card (or cards if you have more than one) and it will "load" your pictures for you. Then you can add borders and size them the way you want them (you can make some big so that they will print in 8x10 and stuff like that...)...

It really helps the families because you don't have to get your camera and juggle that and your autograph books for the characters.

You can also load your own pictures that you take (although I usually don't do this)...

You will still need your own camera - because the photopass photographers are not everywhere - so you will still want to take pictures of stuff that goes on besides just character stuff. And it doesn't work at Universal or Sea World either...

I came home today and Amanda came up to me and said mom i made a jounal.
i asked what kind and she replied my life when we found out about my wegeners.
she started to read it to me and all i could think about is how strong she is.
she is only 13 and i never saw her cry once about her disease.

it is truly remarkable how she deals with everything i am so blessed to have her in my life she is my rock.

good news!!!

ok i live in montreal canada so this is good news for all canadians
but i still want my new american friends to read this also.

awhile back i used to work for a big global retail company `
when i found out last year that my daughter was diagnosed with wegeners they helped me with time off i took my sick hours accumilated plus my vacation time , so they never gave me more hours just helped me out by putting them together. by the way i worked with them for 6 years.
i did every challenge they brought to me my boss was really happy with me
before my daughter became ill they put me on a promotion plan so i had to work morning evening and nights, i did it.
finally i stayed working at nights from 9pm-7am because they found i was taking too many days off because of doc appointments which when i took the days off i would replace them with weekend shifts (a family with an ill child always needs money) so one day i asked about my promotion and they flat out told me i could not get it because i am not a garauntee because of my daughter!!!!!
do you believe it a multi billion dollar company is saying to a mother of 4 which one has a life threating illness plus who worked nights 6 days a week you can not go higher in the company because of your daughter.

so i did what i had to and quit
i found a new job which knows about my daughter and knows she comes first.

so on to the good news
our prime minister announced today that in 2013 they are implamenting a new unemployment benefit for parents with children with life threatening diseases.we will be allowed 35weeks to take care of our kids

i really do hope it happens because if i had that i would have told my job to go bleep itself

What a horrible way to treat you!!! I'm so sorry about that. I am glad you got a new job that seems to be more understanding.
