I had been telling my kids it was 12, and then a coworker said they were going to take their 10 year old and I looked and low and behold it is 8. Did it used to be a higher age or has it always been 8 and my memory is poor???Glad you had a good experience once again. For some reason I had it in my head that children had to be older than 12 or 14...my youngest just turned 8 so I guess we should consider doing it. That is nice the guides do the pictures like that.
It was a lot of fun! It looks more thrilling than it is in reality. They have your safety vest harness hooked into a track above (it's interesting that it doesn't really show up in the picture that well) and although the bridge sways and there are artful gaps between the boards there is a net in the space under the boards.That looks like a really cool experience. I’d be a little nervous on that bridge though!
I would definitely make it a priority the next time you get back to WDW!Oh man, I started reading this awhile back, got interuppted, and then forgot to come back!
Finally getting back to this.... and what a great start! Awesome deal at the GF, wow. Travelling sans kids is amazing, isn't it?
Isn't having the rental car a game changer? Time is money, and I just wouldn't do it any other way. Especially if it's a race weekend! I love how you could make that Princess breakfast so easily. Sweet!
Great info on the AK trek. I've been eyeing this one up for a long time. I hope they keep doing it for awhile because I have no idea when I'm making it back there again.
Reading about the GKTW project and missing the cut was seriously an emotional roller coaster for me So I believe you that you were disappointed. And I’m glad the alternative was an epic solo day at WDW.I know, it was rough! I was going to write that I was disappointed about missing out, which I genuinely was, but was afraid it would sound disingenuous. It was a pretty good "problem" to have
What is the process for volunteering if you aren't part of a group? I would really like our family to do this once the kids are old enough.Reading about the GKTW project and missing the cut was seriously an emotional roller coaster for me So I believe you that you were disappointed.

I have no connection to GKTW other than participating in community Make a Wish events, but the place holds a very special place in our hearts. We have been volunteering there on our trips to Orlando since my oldest turned 12 (that’s the minimum volunteer age unless you are an alumni family). Next year we are doing 2 shifts at the request of my boys. I HIGHLY recommend taking time to volunteer if you can swing it.
There were a couple people our tour who had issues with heights but did ok with the bridge. If you have serious issues and aren't sure the bridge is for you I was told they can accomodate and go a different route and still enjoy the rest of the tour.We did this years ago, with my (at the time) teenage son who "has a thing about heights".... he was nervous, but got through it just fine and we all really enjoyed the tour
