I replied in your other post too, it's been 6 years since our Wish Trip, https://www.disboards.com/threads/keiras-make-a-wish-trip-february-27-march-4-2012.2889066/#post-44230847 but I doubt that much has changed. You can read through our completed trip report, I tried to be pretty detailed. Characters, she will want to meet some at the parks if she's into princesses. Mickey, Pluto, Goofy and Belle where the only ones we met at GKTW. But, we managed to meet over 40 characters during our trip. We did 4 character meals, and they pretty much ushered us to the front of the line or to a Fast Pass entrance for rides/characters.I’m glad I found this thread. My coworker’s daughter was granted a Wish trip and they’ve never been to Disney and I’ve been asked for any tips or advice I can offer since I’ve been to WDW several times with my family (not on any Wish trips though). I know they will have a three day park hopper and will be staying at GKTW. I think MAW is handling her daughter’s specific request to meet and dine with Cinderella and they will have character meet and greets at GKTW and don’t have to worry about scheduling fastpasses or lines. I helped her order some matching family shirts and a Cinderella outfit for her daughter. The mom has no interest in the Disboards as she said she felt it was overwhelming. I think she more so wants advice on how to go about touring and what to do or skip since they will have a three day park hopper ticket. Her daughter is an only child so they are able to completely focus on this trip being about what she is primarily interested in. She did ask me about the magic band and I told her it isn’t really necessary since they aren’t staying at a Disney resort and won’t have scheduled fast passes. Are there any specific tips I should give her? I am so excited for this family. This little girl is so awesome and deserving of this.
