Any tips would be wonderful from other wish families! Alyson is excited to see the princesses, of course, but also anxious to feed the dolphins at Sea World. Doc McStuffins is her favorite. Does anyone know if she will be added to the cast of characters by February 2013?

No, I haven't. But I'm already planning in my head. Thinking we are going to skip Universal - as there would only be a couple of things between the two parks they would be interested in doing. This will leave us either a down day, or a day to add on to Disney (on our our dime). I'm still considering ADR's at the moment and which ones we want to try that we have never done and which ones they liked a lot to do again.

So sorry that Alyson, and your family, has been through so much. So happy that Alyson is getting her wish.

Here's a site you could check closer to your dates http://kennythepirate.com/disney-wor...ter-schedules/

Someone specifically asked about Doc McStuffins last month, and the answer was that she won't be added any time soon. But Feb. is a ways a way.

My DD will swim no matter how cold it is. On one trip in Dec., she was the only one in the resort pool, and the lifeguard thought she was crazy. I was drinking hot chocolate while I was watching her - no way was I going in.

I've been reading lots of PTRs, and many have made character dining reservations.

HI, I just found this discussion board. We are so excited that our daughter, Hope, has been granted her wish to WDW. We will be there the same time as both of you, Feb 16th-23rd. I hope we get to meet both of you.
