Julie - As many complications that we had with our coordinator, she booked the flight as soon as we had dates, and gave us the flight info right away. I agree with you that I'd rather know, and then adapt if a change occurs. Any chance that your airport is small enough that there aren't many flights departing & you could get a pretty good idea of your flight times? Sorry they wouldn't tell you - did they say when they would let you know? Did you tell them what you posted here - that you understand it could change but would still like to know?

Our airport is small, but not super small. I looked on the jetblue site and tried to figure out what the times could be. It looks like we could depart around 12:30 (arriving in Orlando around 3:30) or 6:30pm (arriving in Orlando around 9:30pm). I'm hoping that they won't have us arriving at 9:30 at night, wasting our whole first day. On the way back, we could leave Orlando at 9:00am (arriving back home at 12) or 7:30pm (arriving back home at 10:30pm). Again, I'd hate to have to leave GKTW at 6am on our last day in order to make our flight. Whatever it is, we'll make the best of it. I know they want to meet with us to have a "goodbye party" so I'm hoping we'll know in a week or two. Our Wish Granter says that she'll forward us the flight info as soon as she has it. It's MAW that won't release it to her.

Julie - I hope you get the flight times that will give you the most time at GKTW. I just remembered that our coordinator called me & asked me if the flight times would work for us before she booked them, and had me write it all down. When we got official confirmation in the mail 2 days later - it was a different flight. Yay for the upcoming "goodbye party".

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 ....so 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!
Victoria


I have a suggestion since I am in the same boat.. If you can find things that fit him - like a Red T-Shirt - got to michaels or Jo-Ann Fabrics and get some disney iron on patches and make your own. I am also a bargin shopper and you can find really good condition plain shirts - Try a Red T-Shirt from Good Will and iron on a Mickey Mouse... You can also get socks (we just found some Disney socks in Walmart).. I have a 90 pound very short 11 year old due to meds for her epilepsy - but also due to issues from her brain tumor... You could really make some neat shirts with an Iron and some puffy paint -

Wal-Mart tends to carry disney themed items in the adult mens section , but, mostly PJ's - Lastly - on Disneystore online you can usually find mens larger sizes on clearance .. One last idea would be Etsy -or go to a embroidery store and have them bling some plain shirts, PJ's etc .. I have seem many places offereing disney items and thinking of doing this for my DD before we go - Embroid Me (a chain that we have here) charges 12.00 to set up - and a few dollars per item to embriod - I just did some towels for gifts and it was really really reasonable..

I hope that helps!
Nicole
(we are going on our wish trip on the Dream in June.. I've not had a lot of time to write or update my signature etc.. but will soon

We leave this Sunday for my daughters maw trip. We will be flying. I have never flown before, let alone with 4 kids. Maw allowed and paid for 2 of my foster children to go along with us. Any advice on flying with kids would be much appreciated. Madison is 3 (wish child). She is fed by tube and can not take anything by mouth. She wont take a pacifier. I have heard that gum or eating will help the kids ears. How do I help her?

Momma 31 we leave Tuesday so we will be there the same time!
If your kids yawn really big it helps with their ears too. Hope helps?
Nicole, thanks for the suggestion! Actually a ver special person from this board mailed all 3 of my kids a package with patches I sewed on and stickers and a card from MM. Totally surprised my kids and I was so touched by their generosity! .
Soooo excited to go and have started packing. Jack is feeling better, had labs run Tuesday and just waiting for results to come back. My daughter is still tired, but on antibiotics for strep. Thank you to all praying for good health for us, I really appreciate it!
We live in MN and got hit by a snow storm today. Everyone is mad, except me. Lol! Just makes me excited for 80s on Tuesday.
Hi to everyone else!

We have 4 ADRs - 2 character breakfasts that our MAW covers, Via Napoli (Totally for my benefit!) and Rainforest Cafe (my older daughter really wants to eat there). I have stared at the reservation screen lots, but a) I don't want to take away too much park time and b) there's always food at GKTW. I also don't know what Ja's stamina will be like, so I hesitated at dinner reservations.

It will work out to be amazing!

Don't get me started on weather. Another 4 - 6 inches expected this weekend. This is the stupidest spring ever!

Sorry I don't have time to read back. We leave in the morning. We'll be keeping all of you in our prayers, and I'm looking forward to reading about all of the trips that are coming up soon.
