We aren't doing a lot of pre-planning, we just want to get there and go with the flow...
Em has an MRI in 3 weeks and my mind is on that, once i know it is stable we will focus on the trip....I know it is coming fast....

Ya know, I just wanted to let you know....originally I planned on going with the flow. I was told to do otherwise, have a plan, write down what you want to make sure you don't miss. Well, I have to say, I wish that I had gone with the flow. I think we missed out on alot because we were so focused on the itinierary, and missed out on everything in-between. So I agree......GO WITH THE FLOW!

Can't wait to hear more!

I think we will be ok just going to the flow too....maybe it is hard for me, I am a bit of a control freak and need to know exactly what is going on...I am avoiding the Wish Trip reports (post trip) because I don't want to know what is happening, I want to be surprised....
Like I said the only 2 things we will for sure plan are her princess meal that they are taking care of making reservations...and hopefully Margaritaville on Wed because that will be my 39th birthday and if it is like 29 I will need a distraction..LOL.....

Wish Trips are the best for go with the flow mentality because things just happen on Wish Trips...characters can come up that you were not expecting. I am glad you are going to go with the flow. I am also glad that you are avoiding those post wish trip reports! Every trip is completely different anyway!

I also think going into it with the expectation that it is NOT going to be the perfect vacation. Kids still cry. It still rains, sometimes a lot. Unfortunately, sometimes kids get sick. But it rained, we cried, and Lauren ended up in the hospital and we STILL had the best vacation of all of our lives! So it must be good, right!

I would have to turn off the DIS, though. Gosh...you have some serious will power to stay away from those post wish trip reports!!! Wow.

we went on our trip in Feb
we decided to go with the flow
we didn't tell the kids what tickets we had so they only knew we were going to meet Mickey mouse that was it
so there was no disappointment, when we didn't go to universal at all

We loved hanging at GKTW and hope to go back for my dd trips one day

I saw that we will be missing each other by a day...that is too bad. We can just do our countdown together at least!
I can't believe you haven't been reading post reports...I am addicted to them!!!
Take care,
Mary Anne

Oh I am getting excited, we saw our wish granter at a track meet yesterday and she will be calling in the next few days to set up our party....we are under 40 days...
Em has an MRI on Monday, DH and I think her shunt may be over draining so we need to get that taken care of...then we can relax and get ready for out trip...Oh she will be in a wedding the Saturday before we leave so we have to worry about that too..
