All that takes time away from the parks, etc., but I enjoy it. (I don't like the tie-dyed cheesecake, so ymmv )
JoshP....Sandi mentioned the shadow boxes and memory lane with the Trivia/Fab signs... I also think the pools are kind of neat... for instance, the computer pool also includes the accessories with the restroom/changing area being the "hard drive", plus the giant keyboard, the screen, floppy disks..... check out the song titles of the jukebox at the 50s pools.. ditto for the 8 track titles in the 70s...

if you have kids, the games/activities at the pool are always fun...you can join in doing the hustle in the lobby at 6pm...or play a life size game of twister in the 70s, etc.

So much to see if one walks around the resort... you will have fun! Enjoy!

p.s. we like the tie-dye cheesecake... plus we really like the chocolate crossiants ... and the King cupcake too (although suggest you share, it's rich :

One little spark of inspiration is at the heart of all creation. Right at the start of anything that's new, one little spark lights up for you.

The Shadow boxes are really, you will find something you remember. It's like a mini museum inside the resort lobby.

Hi I'm sorry if this has been posted already but does anyone have a suggestion on room request for a standard room. I want to try to get something close to food court and busses. Thanks so much!

Building 5, lake view is standard and right by Classic Hall. That's where I was in December and it took me maybe 2 minutes top to get from my room to Classic Hall for everything.

P.S. GO GREEN! (Right next to you! Frandor area. Good to see another EL person on here!)
Very cool. So glad to see both our men's and women's BB teams get good seeds in the tourneys.

I will be interested to hear how you like the cheesecake.

They make a great milkshake with cookies and cream ice cream at Pop, too. It is almost as good as the MSU dairy store's. Josh will understand!

Can't wait to try all of this. Love cookies and cream (But at the Dairy Store... Sesquicentennial Swirl all the way!).
Thanks!

Oh my god

I LOVE cookies and cream milkshakes

I should just stop eating now, so I can make room for the insane amount of calories I'm going to be consuming come May

Building 10. I have book preferred rooms and the last two times we have gone, they have given us Building 10. It is both near the food court and the transportation. Plus the Hippy Dippy Pool is close but not too close where it will be disturbing.
