Show Notes

On this week's show we're talking to Katie, a foster mom, an adoptive mom, and a mom to some truly exceptional kids. Katie recently took her kids on their first trip to Walt Disney World, and on their first Disney Cruise aboard the Dream. Come hear how she prepared her kids for these experiences, how they navigated the parks and the cruise, and all of her tips for parents with special needs kids who want to experience WDW or DCL with their families.  Her message: It's not just doable, it's magical.
