Welcome!! I grew up in Central PA! Back then we had seasonal passes to Hershey Park. This is our first summer not going to Hershey Park on vacation.

He was thrilled! He can't wait to see the finished product! I haven't told him they gave us a tracking number to see it's progress. Otherwise, he'd have me checking every day!

Can't wait to see the results!!!
It's a very cool keepsake...uh I mean work of art. I hope he realizes it's not a toy. This was definately one of the highlights of summer! $49.99 would have been more reasonable.

A shirt, some fishing stuff, and pocketed the rest.


It is overpriced like all thing related to Disney. But in the long run it was a really fun experience for Anakin and there is a physical reminder of that experience for you all.

We live about 10 minutes from Penn State. We usually like to do long weekends at Hershey over Halloween and Springtime in the park. Its much cheaper and we don't really need the stuff that isn't open those times of year since our kiddos are only 4 and 6. We had talked about doing the season passes but then we opted for a vacation to MN. I know next year we won't even think about Hersheypark since we are doing WDW in June.

That's understandable! WDW is much better than Hershey Park anyway. When we go, we stay with family and either buy tickets from Giant grocery store or given to us from famiy or friends who have extra free passes. Anakin can't go on most of the rides, he's limited to the train, monorail, sky ride, Zoo America. He went on Chocolate World's ride quite a bit. Last time we were up, my dad was at the Hershey medical center, so I spent alot of time at the hospital while my family did Hershey Park, Zoo America and Chocoate World.

Either from the motion or something else, he gets seizures from wilder rides. Even at Disney he can't go on TSM, Star Tours, or the Barnstormer anymore. Every time he did this winter, he had cluster seizures.

Disney in June will be a great vacation!

Too expensive. A once in a lifetime thing for him. Though it is pretty cool!

(I have been told I used it wrong) But... sometimes it isn't about a different entrance, but how long the wait is. I know... I know... it isn't meant to shorten your line, but for some... THAT is the issue. For some with chronic conditions having a way to leave the line is important. It was so frustrating to wait in line (a cramped line) only to have to barge our way back through to exit it.
Oh my GOSH, THAT is so true!! That just hit me between the eyes and I had to comment, because we HAVE been there done that!

It is us, they make sure to treat us differently... I have been told I am too nice...

That is my favorite picture of JJ EVER! What happiness and enthusiasm! You are Knocking this TR out of the park...you need to write mine....I am so happy things turned out better and you enjoyed this more than going up North...even if it DID mean we didn't get to see you on your way home!

After last year, we decided the next time we go up north it will be by plane. I'm so glad we got to meet you all last summer on our way home! Hard to believe it's been a year!

I was hoping to crank out a day each day for the TR. But very soon I'll be bouncing between the two TRs. We ate twice at the food court at AoA so I have that food report and pictures. Twice we went to Epcot and did the Highland games. I swear Anakin got sick 4 days after playing each time. He is sick again today, so we are just hanging out at the house this weekend.

I think it took all DH had not to get one done too. I could tell he REALLY wanted to do it. I'm so glad they didn't ask him a second time if he wanted to do it. He probably would have said yes.
