It is getting so close! You guys must be so excited! The itenary sounds good to me, but then again we haven't even started planning!

Just a note on the Nemo Ride, the queue is pretty dark and I found that the voices on the ride are quite loud. I'm just back and there was a little boy in the queue before me with big headphones and a torch on and he was not happy walking through the queue, he also didn't like the travelator that you use to get into the clammobile. Just a heads up.

Hope you all have the time of your lives!

Good to know! Our 3.5 yr old DS isn't fond of loud noises. We have some headphones that we will need to remember to include with our WDW supplies! We got them for him when our hospital treated us to Monster Jam. SOOO loud! Once he got over the initial shock, he proudly wore his headphones and had a great time!

Thank you, again, for the heads up!

Thank you so much for this info. Gavin does not like things on his head but he will let me but my hands over them with washcloths so may try something like that. Thanks again

I've read about those on the carseat.org forums. Great reviews there!

Oh my gosh I completely forgot to call back. When I called the airline it was labor day and they were closed. I will have to talk to our wish chapter as well or try the airline again

How is Gavin doing? Has his spitting calmed down? I hope your dr appt went well the other day. I hope you find peace in your planning today!

Thinking of you all!

He is actually doing really really well. Knock on wood! They upped his Tenex in the afternoon which seems to have helped some of that impulse control. He was having some trouble at first adjusting but seems to be doing better. I have been sick and I think he has picked up that I'm not feeling well because he has been really lovey. He has not been spitting and has only been using "nice touches."
He seems to be understanding the trip is fastly approaching. The other day we all had to watch Cars 2 in the living room. He insisted. Normally he likes to watch his movies on his own on his Ipad.
I continue to be nervous about everything of course because I see my happy little boy again and hope we just hold on to that for awhile. Atleast long enough for him to enjoy all of the magic. He is such a special kid. So when he can't handle something (for some sensory or autism related symptom) that I know he would normally like it is tough. You just want it for them so bad sometimes. I keep praying and knowing that everything has fallen into place so far so this will as well.

How is everything going with your family? Is everyone getting excited as it gets closer?

Reading through your trip report. You're definately not the only crier, I've got tears reading your whole post. I actually get alot of tears reading any PTRs. Much more than when I watch a sappy commercial at the wrong time. I'm so, so happy for you and your family, to enjoy this trip. I hope it goes wonderfully!!

I also made a paper chain to help ODD count down the days. I also added a special link for every 10th link (our countdown was 100days) and on each 10th link, I give a small present related to the trip to each of the kids (only given one so far)

One thing I picked up while reading about the wish rooms at Disney is that they're only open during the week, not the weekends, if I understood correctly. However, looking at your schedule, looks like this won't be a problem. On a personal note, wondering if you could confirm while you're there using them, that they're actually closed on the weekends. We arrive on Friday, so I was thinking that Chatterbox would want to go straight to Disney on Saturday, but then the wish/resting room wouldn' tbe open.

Excited for you....it's getting so close

<---- Fellow crier here, too. Y'all read Karen Kingsbury books? There's rarely one I won't cry while reading. I cry when happy! I cry at kids' talent shows! Not MY kids- just kids in general! I might just pass out crying at GKTW .

Maybe thinking of this guy will help stave off too many tears!
