    We saw the new Genie cards on lanyards during our last trip October 25 thru Nov 9, 2013.
    They were very clearly marked with the name and dates. We were able to read dates on Genie cards as we passes people in the park.
    I am not sure what these are, so I am guessing other posters would also need to know more information to answer your question.

    There was a Wish Trip family a few years ago from BC. Their pre-trip report is here:

    They also have a trip report link that you can find on their pre-trip report that might help you out a bit.

    Are you going to start a pre-trip report?

    Diego had his meeting on Sat with his wish grantors. Ever since we talked about him getting a wish it was Disney and Universal...

    Then he says he wants to go to the batcave...because it is cool...

    He has been playing lego batman wii game for the past week or two (he got it for christmas) so I know that has been on his mind. And the hour before the ladies got to our house I let him play.

    I know this is his wish and I am fine with not going to Disney but I just think he said it cause it was what was on his mind. Other things is I cant seem to find a batcave anywhere. I know that lego land had batman and robin (although not sure if they always have same things) so he but legoland as his backup wish and we did fill out all the paperwork for Give Kids the World.

    I want Diego to have an amazing wish and the ladies said you would be amazed what Make a Wish can do but Diego is 6, almost 7 so it would have to be the "real" batcave...

    I guess we will wait and see...they said I should hear back in a bout a week...they were talking together and said something about batman to the wish reveal so maybe they will do that...

    I asked Diego yesterday about universal and disney and he said yeah I want to go there. I asked if that was the wish he wanted and he said yes. So I asked about batcave and he said oh I would rather go to the batcave cause it seems cooler...not really sure what he expects lol...

    When my DDs wish granters came, we were worried she'd ask for a horse or something. At least he didn't ask for a real bat as a pet. :rotfl:

    I'm sure everything will work out great. Did your wish granters give you their phone numbers? Maybe you can call them and discuss his wish?

    We are going to Orlando next week through a different organization. 1 day at disney, 2 at universal and 1 at sea world. Hopefully the plane trip goes without a hitch and the airline doesn't destroy my son's electric wheelchair... He has never flown before so this should be pretty interesting.

    I noticed today that the shamu show at sea world is closed today through April. That's some terrible timing. We have nothing planned for any of the parks as I think we're just going to wing it.

    not quite what he had in mind lol...

    They said they would be in touch in a week or so...I think they will be doing some reasearch but from what I can come up with there is nothing out there that looks like what Diego is talking about...but we will see...

    I've done Batman/cave wishes (not the San Fran one, but two others - one was my kid and one I was helping out as a volunteer on the day of), and trust me. They exist. :)

    One of those Batman wishes, the kid was among the happiest I've ever seen a kid about his wish. Just a total superhero that day. Most of my Disney wishes have been great, and if that's what the kid wants, I'm always glad because I know it's got a great infrastructure in place. But there is just as much joy, and sometimes more, to be had from other wishes as well.

    If your son has specifics in mind, he does need to make sure his wish granters know them so they can make all the arrangements to make sure his vision is met.

    That was us :goodvibes we'd be happy to help with any questions you have. We went when our son was still quite sick (on his oncologists advice and we weren't brave enough to ask why we should "hurry up and go"), we enjoyed it so much we are heading back this summer to do some of the many things we missed. We are evening planning to spend a few hours at GKTW - it's such a magical place!

    Hi,

    Our daughter will be going on her MAW trip to GKTW in late March. I tried going to the link to make my initial first 10 posts but it says that thread has been closed. Is there somewhere else I'm supposed to go to take care of those first posts?
