I may get scolded on here, but there are some great pin lots you can buy on ebay for fairly cheap with lanyards included. (some say they are fakes, but the ones I have purchased were real - you can PM me for the ebay sellers id if you would like).

The best advice I have on going with little ones is don't try to ride every single ride. Have them pick out their two favorites and go for those. Anything else will be extra fun!

Enjoy the magic your kids are the perfect age for this trip!
We are loving our golf cart! It's great when you live in a subdivision and have lots of places to ride.

I'm hoping the family gets into the pin trading. DS is very shy but I think he would enjoy trading pins with the CMs.

all of your plans look great! looks like you have a good itinerary planned to include some downtime...hoping the weather will be great and not to hot at that point!

love the birthday photos, so adorable! and how sweet of your family to give back to the hospital where Alyssa gets her treatment!
Thank you! I'm so proud of the kids for donating their gifts. They have a whole room upstairs full of toys so they don't really need tons of new toys on their birthday. We, along with the grandparents, give them a gift to open but the others are all donated!

This weekend we received our packet from MAW. It contained a letter for Princess Alyssa saying her wish to see the princesses in Disney World would soon come true. Our flight leaves on Saturday 11/10 at 4:00pm and arrives at MCO at 5:45pm. Our flight home leaves on Sunday 11/18 at 4:45pm and arrives at RDU at 6:20pm. I like the return flight but was hoping to get to GKTW a little earlier on our arrival day. But leaving later in the day will mean more time for last minute packing and not having to wake up sooooo early! We also received a Birnbaum's Guide to Disney in our packet, which is a great book for anyone who is taking their 1st trip to Disney. Lots of great information!

Big Announcement! Alyssa was chosen to be a part of the BIG GIVE! We are very excited and thankful! Through our journey with Alyssa we have met so many wonderful people! Very Blessed!

Soooooo cute!!

Congrats on the Big Give! You all definitely deserve it!!!!!!!

Are y'all still going to the MVMCP? We are thinking of going on the 16th to give E time to adjust to the characters, but some ppl said Friday parties are the worst as far as crowds go . We may still go that night anyway. It kind of works with our schedule.

I already keep my postman very busy. At least now I can tell my husband that I didn't order any of the stuff in those boxes on the front porch.

Yes we are doing MVMCP on Monday afternoon. I checked the crowd calendar for Friday and it's showing a 1.1 out of 10 so I don't think you should worry at all. The crowd level is around a 2 the whole time we are there, but goes up to 8 on Sunday and 10 the whole week of Thanksgiving. Let me know if you want me to look up any other days for you.

Oh yay! Thank you!! Yeah...the week of Thanksgiving part is going to be tough b/c we fly back on the 20th and hope to hit Sea World, Hollywood Studios and the Magic Kingdom before we head back (Sat-Mon). I just want to make sure E gets his fill of GKTW, you know? Plus, rest days! I'm gonna go see if I have posted an itinerary lately on E's thread...If I have and you see it, feel free to comment .

I'll check it out! I've never planned so much for 1 week in my life. Well, maybe my wedding required a little more planning.
