There is a website for WWS that posts the big sport events but that just means they could be put in any or all of the values and possibly some moderates. Here is the link http://espnwwos.disney.go.com/events/find/

I am back!

Hi everyone!

I am back. Have second thoughts about the January trip as there was just too much profanity this trip. By me. I would rather take an unpotty trained child with me than a grown man who keeps trying to run over people or run out into traffic. One would think that forty years of practice would be enough but I am no longer able to run fast enough to catch him.

Had several special moments and I will write about them when I feel a bit better. I think the darned tumble monkey done gave me a bug.

The cups at the resort were turquoise and pink topped and if anyone saw the lime green Christmas decorated room that was ME!

Devolving life

Hi there Luster

It was not so bad but as my husband gets more and more difficult and I was not feeling so well it just was not as much fun as I had hoped. It takes a lot of effort to get him to the things he says he wants and then he does not really look at them etc. and it is a constant strain to try to keep him calm and not going off the rails. We were going into the American show when a young man ran out screaming and Tom was shocked at his behavior but it is just what his is without constant control. Getting on and off the buses was difficult even with help from other passengers. A lot of work and not much fun, for me.

I did have some special moments here and there though and will write more later. I have lost 10 pounds since I left though. I am feeling a bit better today.

I am sorry you have to change your dates but might there not be more to see in February than January?

SG

Work

Luster, I have a single sister who has always said that she only works to afford her trips.

Make sure to save some money from all that working so that when you retire and have more time you will have the money too.

Goals

I like your goal Luster. Mine would be to be a Fairy Godmother but I am afraid that I would get rich spoiled kids and I rather enjoy the ones who cannot afford me more.

Welcome back SG. I am sorry Tom gave you such a hard time but always remember it reflects bad on him not you. I wish you felt better while you were there. Being sick at Disney is not fun. Remember the year I got the swine flu and then DS got it and we spent a week in our room at ASports? It's just not fun when you can't enjoy it to it's fullest. Then again there is no better place to be under the weather all at the same time.

I can't wait to hear the Tom stories when you feel up to it. Oh and you would make a wonderful Fairy Godmother if you just remember even the rich spoiled kids are just kids who are misguided and need a Fairy Godmother too, right?

Lucky

Ang, I got lucky and did not come down sick until the first night home. One of those darned tumble monkeys got me I fear. Not kidding either.

It might reflect on Tom but I do not want other people hurt. One episode was quite good though and I made sure to praise him highly. At the EPCOT ticket place three young boys behind him were rousting about and he handled it far better than I had feared. He has been known to threaten bodily harm to children who are playing around. He seemed pleased at my praise.

It is not the rich spoiled children that I do not want to deal with but their parents. I love all children, including the ones who have it 'all'.

I am going back to lay down now. I may eat something, later.

Well I am glad it didn't happen till you got home. Now to ask what is a tumble monkey?

I am sure the day will come where a parent will tell Tom where to go and threaten him back. I wonder if that would stop him? Problably not.

I understand about the parents and have a Disney spoiled parent story for you when we talk next.

I hope you feel better soon.

Ang

Hi all! I just booked 2 nights at ASSp for just over a week from today! This would probably be my last choice of the values, but with the passholder discount it is the cheapest available and my parents are paying (late bday present) so I'll take it I have a couple of questions and if they've been answered on previous pages I apologize; this is a bit of a long thread.

1) Which buildings are the preferred rooms?

2) I would like to request a section that is fairly quiet and close to parking. Any recommendations?

3) Has the entire resort been refurbed recently, or just certain rooms? Which rooms were refurbed most recently?
