    Sorry one more question I need help with. We check out of GTKW on Monday and are staying/extending until Wednesday. Our local chapter said we could use the disney tickets which we can, but his GTKW button expires on Monday. So two questions....do you think we will still enjoy AK without GTKW perks? And two the manager at GTKW said that we might be able to still have the button honored at AK as it will only be off one day. We are planning on going Tuesday. Would really, really appreciate your help/input please.
    Thanks!

    My understanding is that the button, and other MAW perks, can't be used past the dates of your "official wish" (not including extension). You would need to get a GAC pass from Guest Services at AK, which will help you with your needs. You won't have the GKTW/MAW perks, but the GAC should help with whatever special needs you do have. You will most certainly still enjoy AK even without the "magic button"

    If you are talking about all of the pictures taken at Give Kids The World, when you check out they will give you a Photo CD & if it is not ready, it will be mailed to you.

    Great news!!! We have DATES!!! :cheer2: I got an email yesterday from one of Kara's wish grantors that we are set to go October 13 - 19th!! The only problem is that is pretty much all the email said...so Im a little confused.:confused3 I emailed her back to ask if we were staying at the GTKTW and if I should book the castle and BBB or do they do that since that is part of her wish. Hopefully I will hear something today! :goodvibes Another thing is we will not be able to take Kara's brothers since they will both be in school and cannot miss a week of High School. They are very understanding and said its about her and we should focus everything on her. Such good kids!:lovestruc I did book dinner on Arrival day for Paradiso 37 in Downtown Disney! Its really happening!::yes::

    I would go ahead & book the reservations, you will be sure to have them. You can always cancel them if they book them too. It sounds like you have awesome kids.

I would wait to hear back from the coordinator about the reservations but if they dont make them for you i would go ahead and reserve whatever ur wanting to do. We're still waiting for dates ourselves and I'm sooo wanting to book reservations already!!! Haha

    If you wait to long, you will not get any reservations, that is what happened to us. I thought the coordinator was making the reservations & planning everything but they did not & when I found out that I needed to make the reservations everything was booked.
    You can always cancel within 24hrs, of your reservations. I am just glad that I had not mentioned anything to my DD about it at that time. We took a second trip this yr & she got to celebrate her birthday at the Castle.

    I made reservations for our 2 must do breakfasts as soon as we had dates. I apologized to our MAW coordinator that I was a Type A traveller, and they just laughed and said it made their life easier. They simply added the reservations to our itinerary and added the money to our spending cheque (or so they've told me!)
    MAW did make our BBB reservations themselves, but called to check with me what the best date/time would be.

    I really want to make the reservations for storybook dining but were not even approved for the wish yet. We're still waiting for Allies cousin's guardian to send in the paperwork for her to be able to go, then we still have to get dr approval. I'm pretty positive she'll get it but I still want to wait until we at least have dates before I make any reservations.

    Don't worry too much. The storybook dining in Epcot is not hard to get reservations for. You can typically get them even a few weeks before you need them. The castle in MK is a different story :)

    Well after not hearing from the wish grantors and after some great advice - I decided to book our reservations!! You guys are right I can always cancel if I have to. I was able to book breakfast at the Castle on that Monday!!:cool1: They already took the money out of our account LOL. I think ill send the wish grantors another email to let them know. :thumbsup2 Still need to call about BBB which im hoping to do before breakfast since we have a 10:20 reservation. I also booked breakfast at 1900 Park Fare another morning...has anyone eaten there? Also booked were Germany one day for lunch and Teppan Edo for a dinner. :) Has anyone booked any character dining at Universal? Wondering if it was worth it?

    Was wondering in your opinions, what parties are "NOT TO MISS" and what parties are ok to miss.

    Trying to plan our schedule a bit

    Leaving in a week.

    From what I've heard and read, the Thursday party is Christmas themed and very fun for the kiddos!! I've also read that the princesses and pirates party is awesome!!! I haven't read much about the mayors bday night or the Halloween night, but there is also a night when they do a candyland party that's supposed to be very fun as well!! Hope that helps!:yay:

    I am not crafty and do not have time to make my own. Where do I pick one up for Nate?

    You can get some at the Disney store or online on the Disney store if u have time to wait for them to ship it. It usually takes a week or so.
