    Does anyone know of a good website to check for reasonably priced Disney Park tickets? We're looking to purchase my parents' tickets in advance. :thanks:

    The consensus in the TPA&S Forum is to get a free subscription to www.mousesavers.com and go through the link in their monthly newsletter to Undercover Tourist. These seem to be the best prices.

    Note that UCT includes the 6.5% sales tax, as well as shipping, in their prices. Prices quoted by Disney, or in Post 18-A of the Everything About WDW Tickets locked sticky in TPA&S, do not include the tax. You can get directly to that sticky by the link in my signature.

    Make them a disc of the pictures you took. Our chapter says that no one ever sends them pictures if the trip. As soon as we get the photopass cd I am going to compile it all and send it to them

    So I just realized that where I thought I had posted a link to Sarah's PTR in my signature, was a broken link! I have updated it, and I think it works now! We are still waiting on dates, so probably won't travel until fall, but I am still enjoying hanging out here and reading about everyone else's fun!!!

    Kylee- We are not going till January and have been on here for a while now. LOL. I love reading about everyone's trips. It is super helpful in planning since I am a little obsessive about planning. I will try to let pixie dust happen and have fun without getting too stressed about plans. I will, I will, I will....:rotfl2:

    Thanks for the compliment! I do what I can! I love to help make the Wish trips the best that they can be. The smiles that I see on the faces of the Wish child and their family is the reason I do what I do!

    I know Daniel, that is why you are such a great help to many! That is what has been great about this thread (and the ones before it) for so long. Our wish granters didn't know any of the things I learned here and I LOVE how people here have helped each other.

    I have been looking at all of the character meal options! It just occurred to me that Maddox will not be 3 yet when we go, bonus. :) Does anyone know for sure about the ages for meals? I have seen "under 3 eat free" in some areas, but want to be sure. The meals on our 'possible' list are Lunches at: Crystal Palace, Hollywood and Vine, CRT and Tusker. Also I was thinking the Fireworks Dessert party at Tomorrowland Terrace sounded awesome. Anyone tried that? TIA

    I know we won't be able to do all of these, but they are our 'narrowed down' choices.;)

    Wonderful idea. Part of me thinks nobody but us would really want to see these pictures (sorry Facebook friends ;), but I have just started putting some photos together to send to our chapter. Thanks!

    Under three is almost always free.

    If you are at a buffet or other all you can eat the child can get its own plate and beverage at no charge.

    At regular table (menu) service it is normally expected that the child will share from another persons plate but they will provide empty plates. Officially anything ordered specifically for the child, such as a beverage, will have to be paid for, but as a general rule there will be no charge.

    At any counter (quick) service location anything ordered has to be paid for,.

    I took my niece when she was 2 and she ate at Crystal Palace for free or maybe just the cost of her milk. At CRT she was given a plate of buttered Mickey Pasta and a dish of ice cream or sherbet for no charge. She had some meat 7 veggies off my plate.

    Hello everyone. I am sorry i haven't been on in a while. I have been very busy with home repairs. I just started on a diet and exercise routine. :yay: And on top of all that Matthew is having a weight gaining issue. He just saw his pcp doctor and he has us shipped up to GI. They are trying a new nutrition diet. I am hoping it works. He is 4 yr old and only weighs 32 lb. He is feed by gastro tube and doesn't take a lot of food by mouth. I can only pump so much food into him with out getting sick. They add dula cal to his formula. I really hope this works i dont know what else they are going to do. He should be at least 4 lb heavier. I know it doesnt sound alot but it is. I still have to shop for 3t pants for him. I also was hoping he was going to sprout 2 inches before trip but he didn't so he is going to miss out on some rides that i know he is going to want to ride. In all honesty i don't want him on anything to rough. I am fearful he will get hurt.

    Thanks for the info! That helps a ton. :)

    So after reading some ideas on here, I want to make some business card sized thank you notes to give to the CM's and anyone else who helps make our trip magical. I just got an email from shutterfly with a $10 off order of $10 or more coupon and thought I'd check out what they had. They have these cute 'gift tags' that I think would be perfect, and it's only $12 for 25 of them, so with the coupon it would be just $2. (I haven't looked at shipping prices yet.) Offer is good until the 19th so I have a couple of days to think about it. :) I was trying to decide what to write on it? "Thanks for making our trip a Magical experience. Love The Bulkley's" and maybe putting our blog address on it? Or I have thought about putting together a blog just for Maddox's wish trip... So maybe I would put that blog address. I think if I were a CM it would be fun to see some of the pics of me with the kids, and I wonder if they get that very often? Just a thought.

    :banana::banana::banana:So excited!! Got an email confirming our volunteer shifts at GKTW!!! Allison, my mom, Skye and myself will work at the pool. The boys will enjoy the village while we are there. Then Brian and Jake will do pizza deliveries. They figured it's the least they could do as busy as we kept the pizza kitchen while we were there!!:banana::banana::banana:

    We also will likely go back another day while in Florida. Is anyone going to be there June 21st????? COLOR]

    For the Disney meal plan, you have to stay at a Disney hotel.
