PDA

View Full Version : Had to tell someone



Hayden's Dad

I have to tell someone about this. We will be going down to WDW in Nov the 26-Dec 1. This will probably be the last trip my 20 month old son will be able to make as he is very sick and the prognosis is terminal. I wrote in depth about his condition a while back before our trip in May with my family. This time it is just Mommy, Daddy, and Hayden thanks to all the thoughts, prayers, pixie dust, and donations we are able to go down again in only 11 more Sundays:D
So we are making this extra special. So far we have 10 character meals :D:D
B, L, and D at Cinderellas Castle
B, and D at 1900
D at Liberty Tree
L at Garden Grill
L at Crystal Palace
B at Akershush
B at Chef Mickey's
and still trying for the Donalds Safari breakfast at AK (I love the Premium Plan, no credits just B L & D anywhere we want)
We are going to MVMCP
Both Hayden and I are having lightsabers made, and Mommy is getting made up at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at the castle.
We are so excited that I just had to write and tell someone thanks for listening :mickey:

If anyone else has some suggestions for extra special things to do please feel free to let me know.

Have you considered doing a family photo session (http://www.flmemories.com/) while you're there? It seems like it would be a priceless treasure in years to come.

So glad that Hayden has hung in there for another magical vacation. You've put together such a fantastic trip, I can't really offer any ideas for making it more special. I hope that you are able to enjoy every minute with your family. Prayers to all of you.
I wonder if you will be able to beat your last trip as far as character visits (especially with Mickey!)

Just booked the new Donald's Safari Breakfast at Animal Kingdom so that now brings up our total character meals to 11 :blush: Think we have gone overboard? Me neither. Well that is at least 44 characters granted some may repeat but Hayden sure won't mind. :D We are hoping to break the 100 mark on characters this time. :mickey:

Hi, I will be there from Oct 10th through the 15th. If you would like me to send him a postcard from Disney when I am there with his favorite character I would be more then happy to do so. PM me with the information if you are interested. My prayers are with you and your family and I wish this coming vacation is a magical time for all. Cherish every moment! :grouphug: and :pixie: for all of you.
