As my siggy says, I am a single mom of 2 terrific kiddos, ages 7 and 5. Whilst still married to their dad, we took them to WDW in 2003 when they were 4 and 2. They STILL talk about that trip and frequently look at pics! I had planned a trip last November but DS was referred to another state for heart surgery so our lives were put on hold. He has been recovering well and we have been looking at a trip this November but recently learned he may need yet another surgery, in yet another state, so I am tentatively planning the trip with a backup date of January. I have been perusing the site for a few hours and am bowled over by the amount of info here! We are on a fairly tight budget, but I want it to be special for the kids. So, I am looking for info on Disney Dining Plan (is it really worth it for kids, especially if we want character meals?), Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique (better to wear her own costume or pay for the full package including costume?), use of hotel refrigerators versus bringing my own (DS and DD are both on many meds and need access to a fridge) and many other things I am sure you all have the answers to!
