Congrats to you and your family. FYI so you and your wife know - there are PLENTY of places she can eat gluten free all over Disney. We ate ONLY Counter service meals on our last trip and I ate like a QUEEN!!!!!! (we had already booked out trip with FREE Dining at POP, before I found out I have gluten intolerance (very sensitive)

Have a Magical trip.

What an amazing way to teach teamwork. You're only as strong as your weakest link. This is so inspirational...congrats on your trip that everyone will remember and treasure forever.

This lesson will probably spill over to your grandchildren at one time or another-awesome real life lesson!

Awesome! Your family all cutting back working for the trip will make the trip more special.

We all know that a Disney trip can be a huge expense for a family. I applaud your family for showing all of us that it is possible to do the trip you want without breaking the bank. A little (or a lot) of pre-trip savings make for a much more memorable trip. You will not have the stress of the "how are we going to pay off these bills?" questions hanging over your every day. And you showed your kids the value of saving money...a lesson too many kids these days never seem to learn.

Have a wonderful vacation!
