    Hi Shandy,


    What a wonderful idea to celebrate by going to Walt Disney World!  I am so happy that your Mom is cancer free and now your son is in remission.  You family certainly needs to have time to just have fun together.  If your son has any restrictions such as unable to wait in long lines or cannot stay in the sun for a long time, go to Guest Relations at any of the theme parks to see if he will qualify for a Guest Assistance Card.  This will allow you to bypass the regular lines if it is medically indicated.   A week before checking in, you can call your resort and let them know you are celebrating and ask if they could put some balloons and a card of your son's favorite character in the room.  You could also do this on check-in.  I also want you to pick up your I'm Celebrating buttons at Guest Relations as well.  I know you will have such a magical vacation at the end of this month!  Please let me know if I can help you further with your vacation plans.
