We always went to this M&G, because the lines at the village are not as long as the ones at the parks, although some CMs(Disney Employees) will take you to the head of the line when you let them know you are with MAW, but this does not happen all of the time. At the village, they will leave you little surprises everyday, so if you are flying, you might want to take an extra bag to bring back all of the goodies that you will get.
You will also get a photopass from Disney for free, take advantage of them, get as many photos you can get. They will give you all of the info for this at the village.
Have Mayor Clayton & Mrs Clayton tuck your children in bed one night, we did not do this, & I regret not doing it.
It will be a busy & awesome week.
You have a beautiful family!
Prayers!!
Thank you so much. we will deff. do most meet and greets at the village. The photopass sounds great. My children would love to be tucked in by Myor Clayton and Mrs Clayton. Sounds like my children are going to be spoiled beyond amagination lol. Im so excited for them.

I have been checking out the boards and am really excited to begin the pre trip report and everything...I am just overwhelmed with emotions We are a family of 5 (3 girls ages 11, 9, 4....2 older girls are my soon to be step daughters!!!!!!!!). Our little princess (Jerzey) that is 4 was born with multiple heart conditions. She has had 4 open heart surgeries and a diaphram surgery due to complications. Being granted this wish is absolutely amazing! This is something that we could never do with our girls in a million years. But I seem to still get a wave of emotions that come over me when I think of all that we have had to endure these last few years and how it is great to be going and at the same time sad cuz of why we are going....does that make sense? I am sure I am just having a moment! LOL I think having these boards will really help me thru all of it

Anyway our trip has been scheduled for Nov 25- Dec 1, 2013!!!! We leave for Disney 2 days after Allen (girls' dad) and I get married! What an amazing trip it will be I am kinda nervous about it being over Thanksgiving but should be fun. My parents also get to tag a long with us which is just wonderful since they have been our rocks thru our Heart Journey so far!!!

As for Jerzey, the docs hope she won't need another surgery for more than 10 years and hopefully at that point it won't be the invasive open heart surgeries!!!

Have a wonderful day
I have a heart kiddo too. We will be going on his wish trip in June to Star Wars Weekend. I understand the emotions of your child being accepted for a wish. It took me a while to be okay with it. Now I am getting pretty excited for Trev!

Hi everyone! We had Jacks send off arty this afternoon at Noodles and company. It was amazing! He was so surprised! His wish grantors gave all 3 kids gifts and even hubby and me....lots of snacks for the plane. They made jack a Pooh blanket to take with us. He hasn't let go of it yet!
Thank you everyone for the racers for him feeling better. He is doing better. More labs and tests Tuesday, but e is doing much better.
My daughter came down with strep Friday, so praying we all don't get sick!
We leave in a week and 36 hours......not that I am counting! Lol!
Welcome to all the new people.
I am so excited, it is really feeling real now.

We are in Canada so I don't know if that made any difference, but we didn't receive the welcome packet from GKTW until we arrived there. They had it ready for us when we checked in.

Hope you have a fabulous time!!!!

Our MAW chapter has been very guarded with any details about our trip. I emailed them today, since we still don't have our flight information, and was told that we are flying on jetblue, but that they don't release the flight times this far in advance. Um ... we leave in less than 3 weeks! They said that flight times can always change, but i'd rather know and then adjust if something changes. Has anyone else had an experience with their MAW chapter not giving them flight times until the last moment?
