So, my twins' middle school is totally fine with it...the office at the elementary school is fine with it...but daughter's kindergarten teacher started extolling on the virtures of attendance. I'm not an idiot, my 16 year old can't miss and she isn't going...but I feel very cranky about this. I simply replied "I know how importance attendance is, and I also know attendance is tied to funding." This is my second child in this woman's class, and we've also had school since July this year (year round). This teacher knows my daughter is never late, and never sick...but she has missed 5 days so far...and yes, she will miss for vacation. It is part of my job, and agree or not, I'm doing it. When I called the office they mentioned this teacher is apparently training to be an assistant pricinipal, and probably just wanted to make me aware...whatever. Kindergarten isn't even a required year in my state. I'm sure missing four days for this might effect her entrance to Harvard.

End rant.



So, about the party at MK...before they had indicated it would be around 6 PM, and then end at 11 or 12. Now I'm rethinking my Animal Kingdom day plan...maybe not enough MK!
We take our kids out for Disney World or Cruise. Last year we got a letter saying the kids had missed more than 10 days which is the maxed allowed, and that they could be held back in their grade. They count the days that the kids miss only 2 hours for leaving school for doctor appt. My son is out quite frequently for appts. and when I said this to them they said they were excused but still counted, but didn't(?), so I don't worry right now until they get in higher grades. They will be out this May and I have just tried to limit their abscences as much as possible.

OoooooOooooooOOOoooo! Did you get any pictures? Were all the rooms behind the concierge gate or just the lounge part? We are going to try to get the Roy/Walt suite in 2012...if the rest of the dates would ever be released.... just dying to hear more about them!

I love reading your TR! I feel like I am right there with you.... until my phone rings and I realize I am supposed to be working!

All of the rooms are behind the gates, and YES I have a ton of pictures! I would have put them in already but the connection was too slow to upload. I will get them up at some point today.

My kids are on the website for the Orlando Sentinal today...

Here's a thought I had last night, do you think they have no one staying in the 8A's or the 9A Forward rooms at this time as they don't want the info on those rooms to get out before the Maiden Voyage?

I can't believe after 2 weeks of people being on that ship none of this info has leaked out yet.

How fun it is to have your children on the website!!

I have been checking back often for your TR so I am sure I will catch those pictures when you can post them!

Great reporting ~ thanks so much! Our cabin will be right next to the one you had (6670). Hope that's not the one with the alarm problem! (LOL)

Yep, it is! But the alarm, which had that problem twice, was surely user error not the cabin itself!
