    This is Volume SIX of the Wish Trippers Community Thread!

    First, Welcome to the WISH TRIPPERS thread!! :)

    This thread is devoted to families that are planning and going on Wish Trips! This thread is designed to be a place where you can ask questions about your wish trips, get some information about wish trips and gain general support from some Mom's and Dad's that really understand what life with a special needs child is like.

    If you are new to the DISboards - Welcome!!

    If you are new, scroll down to post #2 on this thread (just below on this page) and you will find lots of information designed just for our new friends!

    Frequently Asked Questions are answered below in POST 2!

    We also welcome anyone else to the thread, too! Even you lurkers out there. ;)

    The original thread can be found here: Wish Trippers...Unite! VOLUME ONE

    And Volume TWO can be found here:
    Wish Trippers ...Unite! VOLUME TWO

    And Volume THREE can be found here:
    Wish Trippers...Unite! Volume THREE

    And Volume FOUR can be found here:
    Wish Trippers...Unite! Volume FOUR

    And Volume FIVE can be found here:
    Wish Trippers...Unite! Volume FIVE

    Wendygrace started this thread concept in 2007 to serve as a place where families planning Make-A-Wish trips could come and share stories, pictures, information, and just life! Thank you so much, Wendygrace, because many of us have become friends through your original thread!

    So...let's keep the thread going...

    Many of these families have chosen to write a trip report and you can find the links to many Wish Trip Reports right here: (This list includes many of the trips linked in Volumes One and beyond!!)

    WE are HOME! Trip Reports!!

    Amazing Grace's Wish Trip (links)-MAW/GKTW-Late June 04

    Wendygrace's Wish Trip - MAW/GKTW - Late June 07 Great pictures, magical moments! The founder of this thread wrote this one!

    **** Update - I have been off the DIS for a while and am now actively looking for someone to pass this thread on to...Maybe a wish parent out there...or a Moderator on this board...or someone else that is interested in Wish Trips and has some time to organize these trips. If you are interested, please PM me! Thanks!! :)

    Hi everyone we're back. So a little update, Kenzie was originally scheduled to go to WDW in late November long story short her doc never signed off on her paperwork, and anyway she ended up the the hospital until like 2 weeks before Christmas. But we got rescheduled for the end of May, so she's turning 4 in WDW. Check out our PTR, I'll try to keep it updated.

    Hi everyone, having a hard time finding Disney clothes for my son Jack, the wish child. :(. I am a bargin shopper and found lots of stuff for my other two kids, especially my daughter. Been to every Goodwill in the at win Cities, well maybe not every but a lot...mitiple times. He just turned eight but is 140 pounds due to the medicatio he has to take for his Cerebal palsy and he can't excercise normal either. Although he loves swimming. Anyhow I checked Walmart, Target and Kmart in the men's section many popular t shirts out with characters, but no Disney or Mickey for men. I did order adorable iron ons from etsy so we will all have matching shirts for one day. But, he is already has so many other things to over come I feel bad. I did look at Disney and found some but or like $30 or $40 bucks. Anyone have any other suggestions of where to look? I have spent hours googling but can't find anything. A few in men's XL but that would be too big. He is only four feet maybe 6 inches? Anyhow any suggestions would be awesome! Thanks so much!
    It is beyond amazing to see his pure excitement about going!
    Since we are home sick with strep right now we have spent lots of time reading Disney books and watching movies! Yea!
    Kenziema glad things are back on trak! Yea!
    Has anyone felt nervous before you go because things are always so chaotic? I am so grateful and happy, but jack's health has been so up and down his like I just can't believe this blessing! So excited. And praying we all get, and stay healthy. Sorry such a long post!

    Try Amazon if they don't have anything for boys maybe means small or medium might work? Good hunting.

    We met with our wish grantor again today :-). She is such a sweet girl. She's going to meet with us at the hospital next week (Ja's in for her MTX lumbar puncture) with a "countdown box" with little activities for the girls to do each day! Considering the fact that she is finishing up her degree these next couple of months, I am amazed that she is putting so much work into our trip.
    We also decided that instead of having a going away party we would do a "Welcome Home Princess Tea Party." That way the girls can tell their friends and family about the trip and give out little souvenirs. Things are going to be so hectic leading up to the trip; this seems like a better idea :-)

    Victoria - I haven't looked recently, but in the past I've found Disney shirts on clearance at JCP. Maybe ebay? I hope you can find some for Jack.

    Jo - So glad you have a wonderful wish granter. The Welcome Home Princess Tea Party is a fantastic idea.

    Here are a few at the Disney Store in sizes small to large...jump on them quickly they are on clearance and the price marked gets an ADDITIONAL 25% deducted using code BONUS.

    For example, the first shirt I posted is $5.99-$1.50= $4.49

    Hope you are able to find something you and Jack like! There are a lot more than I am posting.
