It really depends on your family. Allears has all of the menus & prices. Breakfasts are cheaper. Dinners are approx. $40 adults/$20 kids (castle is about $67/$40) Any table service meal is going to take about 2 hours or so, and if it's a resort restaurant, that's even more time away from the parks. One complaint I've read, is that the kids are so excited about the characters, they barely eat, and then have to be fed again soon after. We've done most of the character meals, and enjoyed them very much, but it was with free dining. For us, it's just too expensive.

Yay for being able to go to school. Hugs about worrying about germs - it's a constant concern for us too.

Emily. Yay for dates We've flown AirTran quite a few times, but it was before the merger, and we were able to select our seats in advance. Like Melissa said, ATL is huge, but we were always fortunate & our gates were literally right next to each other every time.

Any idea of what accomodations Make A Wish provides for a huge family?
Like Holly said, some chapters will only do GKTW, but I've read reports where the child specifically requested a specific wdw resort, and the chapter granted the request.

I haven't been on here in awhile, life is just so busy. We went on my daughter's trip to GKTW in December 2012. I still miss that time. But life goes on, I am due anytime now with our 7th.
First, I want to tell the previous poster that her sister's family will most likely have 2 villas. My husband and I and our 6 kids fit perfectly in one but I think 8 is the max.
The reason for todays post was I wanted to share something with you. The people who granted my daughters wish is a "project" run by our state highway patrol, not MAW. This project holds 2 reunions a year, one the first weekend in June, the other the first weekend in December. We missed out on the December one as we were on our trip. That was a Christmas party held at a hot springs resort. We can't wait to go this year. The summer reunion is held at an old inn near Glacier National Park. We got there friday night and stayed through sunday. Nothing was out of our pocket besides gas to get there. The kids had helicopter, semi truck, motorcycle, horse and buggy, and, the highlight, red jammer buses. Those buses were built in 1936 and have been restored. Google them, they are very cool. We spent the day in Glacier park.
All the people there were either highway patrol family or wish recipients. Some have been coming for 24 years! One wish recipient, who is almost 22, has a degenerative brain disease. He went to GKTW 6 years ago. Here is what I wanted to share. He wanted to go to the swimming party one night. So on the walk to the pool, he asked his mom if he could do a cannonball into the pool. His mom said no, there are sick kids here and it might be dangerous. He looked at her with a shocked look on his face. He said that there were no sick kids there. They got to thd pool and her and her husband got teary eyed. There were kids with all sorts of illnesses, some visible, most not, wheelchairs in the pool, but yet, looking at them, NONE were sick, they were just kids having fun.
I thought that was so sweet and had to share, because it's true. I am so thankful for the wish project and I cannot believe that still, after granting the wish, they are involved in the life of these kids.
This is long, sorry. And it's hard to edit on my tablet so I apologize for any errors.

Wanted to verify, after reading what I wrote, the swimming party at GKTW, not our reunion weekend.

Hey Anyone Know This Answer

I have been trying to get a hold of some people to do some designs for me, I posted in the Creative Disigns forums but it looks like the last time anyone posted anything or even talked about something on that forum was in May. Does anyone know anywhere I can get designs for tshirts, countdown calenders, stroller markers, luggage tags...ANYTHING I am desperatly. I want to be prepared for everything before I have to be. So just let me know.

I went online and typed in Disney countdown calendars. There was a ton of different designs to look at! It was hard to choose which one to make. I ended up using a couple different designs and putting them together. We used our old luggage tags from years ago but I am sure you could do the same with them too. We just bought some fun duct tape and put it on the handles!

Hi everyone!

I'm Holden's mom! My friend Ana~n~Joseph had been posting about my son on this thread and thought I would finally join! I got a phone call from MaW yesterday telling us we were approved for our wish and they had already booked our flight and cruise. I have started a pre-trip report (because Ana told me to hehehe). Please bare with me while I learn my way around here!

I don't have enough posts to put up a link so search for Holden's Make-a-Wish on the Pre-trip Report thread and I just posted it (or at least I think I did )
