    I understand those moments, I have had them & still have them. I think you are going at a great time of year. We went in May 2011, we were able to visit again this year in Febuary. This is a great thread, everyone is so nice & willing to help in anyway they can. When we went on our MAW Trip, I was not able to have internet service at that time, I wished I had, because I have learned alot here, it made our second trip a little easier.

    Praying for Jerzey, love the name!! Your family will have a wonderful time, just remember to enjoy GKTW Village, it is an awesome place full of Wonderful people!

    Go to You-tube & check out some Disney World Video's, this might help some. My DD is 5yrs old & she liked all of the parks, of course some had more things to do for the younger children, IMOP, I think Magic Kingdom has more for the younger kids 6 & under. It is also the busiest park.
    The night before, I would look at the parks & make a plan of what we wanted to do that day, sometimes we got it all done & sometimes we did not. Remember that you will not be able to see & do everything, just relax & enjoy. The itenerary just basically tells you the day you leave, what time to expect to arrive at GKTW & when you will be Leaving, the day to day is all up to you, if you want to go here or there or if you just want to stay at the village & not go anywhere for the day, it is all up to you.

    I hope this helps some, Safe Travels!!pixiedust:pixiedust:

    First off....:wave2: WELCOME! and congrats on your up coming wedding and Jerzey's wish trip! We just got back last week from my daughter's MAW trip to Disney and GKTW. If you have any questions feel free to fire away. My Emma, 10, is a CHD WARRIOR too. She was born with TGA, PS, and a VSD.

    We got our packet today. I was so shocked at all make a wish does for the families. I just set there and cried while looking at everything. My baby was born to a birth mother that was addicted to drugs. She was a twin but baby a did not make it. The doctors told us that there was enough drugs in her system to kill an baby elephant and did not know how she had survived and did not expect her to make it. Her life expectancy is 3-5 and she is almost 4. The last year and a half has been a huge roller coaster for us. We thought dec. 2011 we were going to lose her due to stoke. But my baby girl is a fighter. I have come to the point that I dont trust doctors anymore. I had one doctor to ask us to pull food and let my baby pass. In other words kill my baby. They made us feel like my baby was worthless and was taking up space. Most reactions we get from people are she suffers and why does God allow poor children to suffer. My reaction is that they dont see the smiles and laughs and love in her eyes. Yes she has medical issues but she is still human. God put her in my life to show me how to live. She is a blessing not a burden. As long as I am able I will be her legs, her eyes, her dance partner, her mother. After hearing what everyone around me says all the time it hurts and receiving this package today lifted my spirits. Finally someone besides my husband and myself think my baby is worth the fight. Make a wish cared enough to bring joy to my baby and family.
    sorry for the rant lol.. my heart is heavy with joy

    momma31 - Lots of hugs :grouphug: Your post was so touching, and your children are beautiful. :lovestruc So sorry Madison has been through so much, and that you have Drs. & people that react so poorly. :hug: Most definitely she is worth it. :lovestruc So happy that your family is able to take this trip.

    You can't schedule a meeting with Mickey, but he's available for meet & greets at all 4 parks, and you can get a FastPass for it at MK. I hope they get to see lots of Princesses. :) Did MAW schedule a Princess meal for you?

    Be on the look out for the Character meet and greets in the mornings at GKTW! We got to meet Mickey, Pluto, Goofy, Dora, and Mary Poppins. The meet and greets are usually from 8:30 to 9 or 9:30am. It was great and they take everyones pic and then give you all the pictures on a cd at the end of your stay :)

    Thank you all. No maw didnt schedule a meeting with the princess but I am most deff. going to try to get my kids in there. I read the GKTW page. That place seems so awesome. My kids are going to have a blast there. I ordered Madison a special outfit to wear for a meet and greet with Mickey and Mini.:banana: Starting monday morning I will be leaving little gifts in my kids beds to lead upto our trip to give them clues. They still do not know that we are leaving next sunday. I wanted it to be a surprise for them. This really will take all of our minds off the daily medical and stress. My oldest daughter has seen her sister go through a lot. This will be a good thing for her as well.

    Momma31, When you get to GKTW, they will give a schedule of everything they have going on in the village. They have met & greets on certain days for the characters from Disney & certain days for the characters from Universal Studios. We always went to this M&G, because the lines at the village are not as long as the ones at the parks, although some CMs(Disney Employees) will take you to the head of the line when you let them know you are with MAW, but this does not happen all of the time. At the village, they will leave you little surprises everyday, so if you are flying, you might want to take an extra bag to bring back all of the goodies that you will get.
    You will also get a photopass from Disney for free, take advantage of them, get as many photos you can get. They will give you all of the info for this at the village.
    Have Mayor Clayton & Mrs Clayton tuck your children in bed one night, we did not do this, & I regret not doing it.
    It will be a busy & awesome week.
    You have a beautiful family!
    Prayers!!pixiedust:
