What an awesome trip ! The smiles on Keira's face shows what a wonderful time she had.

The heat worries me .. I was hoping it wouldn't be that warm this time of year .. but it seems to be hotter than usual. How was the humidity ? Jayden has a hard time breathing when it's hot AND humid. If it IS that hot for us .. we'll be spending our days at the pool. Funny how it cooled down just as you were leaving !

The boys arn't big into character meetings, but it's good to know we won't have to wait long when we come across the ones they DO want to meet.
Where there any Dr Suess characters at IOA ? Jayden loves the Dr Suess books (especially Thing 1 and Thing 2 !) and it would be fun to meet them.

How far was the Walmart from GKTW ? I'm pretty sure we'll end up there on our first day to pick up the things I swear I'm not going to forget (but will).

Loved reading your TR and seeing the pics !!

I also loved all the cute Big Give outfits ! We have a few ourselves and I just love them !! Can't wait to be able to have the boys wear them.

It was hotter than normal the week were there, but its not usually that bad that time of year, even in April. The humidity was rough.

They had in a The lorax, Cat in a Hat, The Grinch, Thing 1 & 2 I think in a restaurant there. We didn't see any of them out and about. It was Dr. Seuss' birthday the day we were there. We didn't really pursue it either since she'd seen so many Disney Characters.

Walmart is less than a mile from GKTW. You pass it when you go back to GKTW, no getting around it.

Thank you! I'm so glad I managed to get all the outfits in there.

I just assume they don't get it and tried to be as quick as possible.

Fantastic trip report!! Sounds like you all had just the right amount of time at the parks and relaxing at the Village. Keira is the best looking Rapunzel I have ever seen. All of her dresses were amazing.

Toy Story was probably my favorite ride of our trip! Loved it - and beat DH!!! Epcot's gardens and displays were amazing. I would love to be there this week to see all those they had "covered" up.

You know - for those that gave you all "dirty looks" well.....they just need to get a life and get over themselves. I mean, really, you are there with a child that has had a tough go over for a period of time and needs some celebration and excitement in their lives. These kids deserve to have all the amenites and more! Okay sorry for my rant but that just gets under my skin!!! I'm glad most were very understanding.

Have to say - you ROCK at the outfit changes!! Glad you had a great trip!!

You know, I didn't let the people bother me, I just kind of laughed.

That Rapunzel dress was amazing! Just beautiful!

I totally remember seeing your daughter the same week! Keira's short crop of hair made me think of my daughter. I don't remember seeing any other little girls with short hair (?). My girl is six months off chemo so she just hit the point where people probably would look at her and not think something was up. Anyway, my point is your daughter seemed to be closest in appearance to mine.
I was glad to read about the progress Keira has made. Nice to see you all had as much fun as we did!

Thank you! I remember seeing your family too. I think we sat beside each other on the carriage ride.

It was an amazing week!
