Totally agree - when you add sugar to iced tea it just sits at the bottom of the glass. Yuck

Shampoo & Conditioner?

Just curious if there is still only the 2 in 1 shampoo/cond available at pop?

It is great for the boys but not so great for my long curly/frizzy hair LOL

Well, I brew mint in my sweet tea in the summer, I think that's quintessentially southern! I'm with ya', can't stand the fake stuff! But Hardee's and Bojangles make a decent tea!

17 hours, 6 minutes, 42 seconds, until check in at POP, but who's counting?

If I make some "posters" on card stock, what would be the best way to put them up? Thanks! I am so glad the kiddie pool is back in commission!

Gee, wonder who???? Maybe someone will have a good idea, but might want to stay away from tape b/c that was one of the no-no's that caused the no decoration announcement by Disney Resorts. Could make window clings instead? I know it is a different effect. If you're planning on hanging it on the door, how about one of those door hangers for wreaths and such - $1 at the dollar store. Or for a window )although it would block the light) suction cups - you could attach string to the poster board and hang it on the hooks.

Have fun!!!

(I don't why Disney has gotten so fussy, since they do minimal cleaning now anyway....well, maybe that is why!! )

Sticky tack. It's the white stuff that kind of looks like clay (but doesn't stain or leave marks) designed for holding up posters. It would work on the door or window. You can get it at any hardware store or drugstore (CVS) or places like Walmart. Usually about $2 for a pack, which would be more than enough for a trip.

Plus it's great for the kids to use to play with in line and on the plane. We first bought it for a trip when my kids were 1-4 (long drive out to NY). It stretches, so they could use it like clay on the car windows, play tic-tac-toe, mold things out of it and then just crush it all back into a ball which they could keep in their pocket. We've never gone on another trip without it, and even now my 17 year old senior says it's the only way he gets through his most boring classes!

I see others answered, but no tape.
You could attach magnets to the back and hang them on the door though

I have some say that Magnets pull the paint off the doors. I just wanted to let you know by personal experience that I have gone to POP 3 times and have always used a ton of magnets on the door and I have never had a problem. I think that is the safest way to hang stuff on the door.

Another idea is buy the heavy duty clips with magnet backs in the office supply area at Walmart. I think it's a $1.19 per two clips.

That sounds like really cool stuff. Adding to my grocery list.

another question

Hi! I have yet another question.....I see that if you plan on taking the disney transportation from the airport you can have it so that they take your luggage....but it could take 3-4hours to get it? We arrive at 8:40pm and will be putting the boys to bed once we get there.....should we just get our own luggage or does it not really take that long to get it?

Hmmm..never know if your flight will be delayed and the resorts do not deliver after 10 p.m. So to be safe I would take whatever you need for bedtime in a carry on. If you are traveling with DH (or a friend), one of you could go down to luggage storage and retrieve the luggage if you don't get it before 10 - but I'd still pack a carry-on with the bedtime needs.

If not delivered by 10, then it would be delivered the next day. I'd pick up my luggage at the airport so I could unpack and be all settled that night.
If you're going to pick up your luggage from baggage claim, remember not to put on the baggage tags Disney sends!

(p.s. never too many questions!)

: cool1:

So glad to hear that the pool is open again!!! My DDs have been asking weekly. I had to tell them it was closed in case it still was for our trip.

Thanks for the great new chapter!!
