I never thought to ask, thanks! DH and I always iron and hang a couple at a time so we're not doing it in the morning (yes, I know we look like crap after 10 minutes in the heat but it's habit to press everything. We are nutty.).

I was talking about the Poly here, I wasn't clear, sorry.

It's a very busy time with the F&W festival and many deluxe resorts are booked heavily. Not much availability with the room only discount.

Aw, man... so you really think it will be awful in January? We're going down for the marathon and really wanted to stay at the Poly for the same reasons as ninafeliz (2 infants in strollers). I've been following the construction thread (long time lurker, first time poster) and we're super hesitant now about it. It would be our first time in a deluxe... and first time spending mega $$$.

Can I ask what you're planning on doing with the little ones during the marathon? We are going in Feb for the princess half and we will have my 3 yr old with us with no nonrunners

Oh, sorry, we have non-runners with us. It'll be me and DH, SIL & BIL, DS (14mo) and nephew (6mo). Only BIL and I are actually running. I know they accept 3yo in places like Neverland and Simba's club (?) but I don't know if they'd be open during the race hours... maybe though?

There is also an in house baby sitting service. I wish I could remember the name of it. They will come to your room and watch the kids and they always have fun stuff planned for them to do. I think it's Fairy God something or other. I will try looking it up.
