For all the changes that we’ve had to make in the past week, our travel agent has been wonderful! She has been quick with information, bookings, reservations and insurance stuff and more. The girls are excited and Patrick is waiting for me to make up a countdown calendar to put on his wall.
4 of our sit down meals are reserved, one for each park, including two character lunches! One with Winnie the Pooh Gang (whoever of them can make it) and another with one or more of Mickey’s Gang! The other two reserved meals are suppers, one being a Chinese cuisine and the other Italian. With the Dining Plan we have, (we have the dining plus plan for free), we get one table seated meal, one quick serve meal and one snack each day we are there. Heather, our travel agent, called me today with some great news!! All the restaurants we have our reserved meals with, will accommodate Patrick’s diet as well! How awesome is that!! They will chop/puree up Patrick’s meal for him/us! How great is that?! That will make some of our meal-times easier! We’ve been informed to inquire at any others we attend for meals, as they may accommodate him, but those are not guaranteed! Regardless, those 4 meals still help.
We’ve been given information about accessing many of the attractions at the parks with regards to accessibility and their alternate entrances for persons using mobility devices. These entrances also allow a maximum of 6 people from the party including Patrick to stay together. Since we are now 5 again, we can stay together and enjoy the attractions together!
A couple of the attractions we are looking at, are Kilimanjaro Safaris and the Jungle Cruise, both I know Patrick will love as it will give him opportunities to see many different types of animals. He is also excited about going on any attractions that are train rides.
Today, we went for passport photos. I had already called Passport Canada and inquired about what would happen or need to be done if we couldn’t get a photo of Patrick not smiling and without his teeth showing. They said I would need to get a letter from a Doctor explaining why. So in the meantime, I’ve put a call in to the Ped. Dentist for a letter with an explanation and why I’m requesting one.
Everything about the trip is booked now. Plane tickets, Insurance, Resort, Transportation to and from the airport, Park tickets and some of our meals…everything is booked and paid for. The reality of it is starting to hit me! All the little pieces of information that we’ve been given and all the answers to all the questions we’ve asked have been answered and answered quickly as well.
I’m a little extra tired tonight, so I’m going to end here for now. I will post more updates soon.
Thanks for stopping by and keeping up to date with us. We love to hear from you too!
Have a wonderful evening!
