    So we have been home for a month and it is time to get this TR started!!!! We had such an amazing trip and we are so thankful for Make a Wish granting our Chelsea Boo a wish come true and our family the trip of a lifetime and to everyone here on the DIS for helping us plan for everything. We have had a few family trips to Disneyland as we live on the West Coast but none of us had ever been to Disneyworld so this was a great new adventure for us.

    If you want to learn more about our family, the plans we had for the trip or the AMAZING BIG GIVE angels here on earth who showered our family with Pixie Dust pixiedust: before and during our trip you can find our PTR here.

    PTR--Bibbiti Bobbiti - Our Boo gets a MAW Trip to meet the Princesses Feb 1-7

    Just a quick intro to our family who LOVES all things Disney.

    Erika ::MinnieMo---Lucky Stay at Home Mama for our two little loves, Disney fanatic since a pretty young age and obsessed with taking pictures of my family.
    Christopher::MickeyMo---Amazing husband and friend, Running and Biking Fanatic, Proud and hard working Papa of our little loves.
    Fuller pirate:---Wonderful 5 year old son with a heart of gold who loves to learn about anything new, loves all things Disney (even the princesses), Star Wars Fanatic and he LOVES his sister.
    Chelsea princess:---Our Miracle 3 almost 4 year old little wish princess, Leukemia Survivor, Loves anything girly and pink, Loves all princesses, embraces all of life's adventures and she LOVES her brother.

    Here we are with our favorite Mice at Give Kids the World During our trip.

    There are a few things that might be helpful to know when reading this TR and here they are. I love to take pictures of my family so there were lots to edit through and I will try to pick out the best ones to tell the story of our trip. We took a longer then normal on a wish trip as we had a great opportunity to extend our trip (at our own expense) by about 8 days to spend time with my parents and family that live in Florida so our trip was February 1-15, 2011 :cool1:. I had a rough plan of the three things that were most important to us to do each day and as the TR unfolds you can see how we did;). Lastly, I am a really emotional person so you will have to ignore the multiple asides where I talk about tearing up. When you are simply thankful for everyday you have your husband and BOTH your kids with you an amazing experience like this can put you over the edge.:lmao:

    So please join me as I hope to be able to express just a fraction of the magic that this trip was for our family. And we're off...

    The night before we departed we had the kids finish off their countdown calendars. With the final stickers on it was off to an early bedtime. The week before we left we had been gradually going to bed earlier and getting up earlier so our jet lag would not be too bad. It worked awesome...no jet lag at all. If you are traveling from the west coast I really recommend doing this.

    Here they are with the last of the countdown calendars completed. Let the MAW adventure begin!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So our day of departure started early. We woke up at 3:30AM and got ready pretty quickly. The kids were pretty groggy but finally woke up. Even the promise of getting on a plane to Disneyworld was not stirring them at first. Finally we were all up and ready to go all dressed in our awesome wish trip shirts from Chiara (Dis:cogero). Final things packed in the suitcase and we were set.

    [​IMG]


    The kids got pretty excited when they saw the limo pull up at 4 AM to take us to the airport. It was a total surprise for them and they really could not understand how a car could be that big. It was a fun but short ride to the airport in the dark.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We took a quick picture at the airport but it was super windy so we just headed right in after that.

    [​IMG]

    We easily got checked in (there seems to be some discussion with MAW families about baggage fees so I thought I would just add that there was money for it in our expense check from MAW and Delta did charge us for each bag:)), then made our way through security and we were off to find some breakfast. The kids were way to excited to eat however so I was glad we had packed lots of snacks and such for the flight.

    Here are Fuller and Chelsea with their new backpacks in line to get on the plane.

    [​IMG]

    We boarded the plane and got settled for our flight to Atlanta. I was feeling really lucky that day because one of our flight options we originally had to choose from was to go through Dallas, well the Dallas airport was closed due to weather that day so yahoo for Atlanta! The kids had flown before so they kind of knew what to expect. We got out a few books for take off, gave them suckers at take off since they donÂ’t chew gum and we were set until we were up in the air. The flight was great. The flight attendants kept on stopping by to talk to the kids and gave the kids anything they wanted which was super sweet of them. The kids kept super busy with all the activities from the amazing Big Gives they had received...after they had opened the boxes we had put most things away until the trip so they were so happy to actually get to use everything:cool1:. Special thanks again to Glenda (Dis: gcast1), Laura, Dave, Carmella, Catherine & John (Dis: wishin' on a star), Dania (Dis:cp2002), Mary and Family (Dis:MaryAz), Ann (Dis:nurseann) and Jen, Claire, Molly & Gavin (Dis: clariemolly) for all the wonderful activities you sent for the kids to keep them busy! Neither of them fell asleep on the flights so it was really helpful having so much for them to do:thumbsup2.

    Here is Fuller very serious about his coloring.

    [​IMG]

    Chelsea doing some coloring too while snuggled up in her Jessie blanket from Dawn (Dis:mickeymaker2003)!

    Chelsea did manage to spill her juice on herself which lead to a mini crisis as she was wet and though I had intended to I totally forgot to pack changes of clothes for the kids:headache:. She quickly got over it as her pants dried out and for future flights she did not keep her own juice cup;).

    We arrived in Atlanta and got a quick bite to eat before getting on the short flight to Orlando. Once again the flight attendants were really nice and they even arranged for the pilot to show the kids the cockpit at the end of the flight. During the flight there was lots of turbulence and many adults looked pretty ill/stressed out. Fuller and Chelsea just loved it so I am sure that people on the flight thought they were crazy as they laughed and were loving the all bumps on the flight.

    The visit to the cockpit was awesome...the captain explained how lots of things worked and Fuller sat in the captainÂ’s seat. He even gave Fuller and Chelsea his copy of the flight plan from Atlanta to Orlando. Fuller thought it was so cool. Both of them told us they had flown a plane after the visit to the cockpit:lmao:.

    The newest Delta Pilot and Co-Pilot.

    Up Next---Arriving in Orlando and will we make it to Give Kids The World in time for orientation?
