I was thinking that the brown rusty metal looked like it was in the canal. We have used that canal many times while driving the water mouse. This trip our DS16 will be able to drive one himself. Don't know how that will go over as he's had his permit since January and still doesn't want to drive. Oh well when he's ready he will drive.

Don't tell your DS, but you only have to be 12 and 5' tall to drive one all by yourself. When DD was under 12 (I believe 10 and 11?), she was permitted to drive, but only with an adult present.

It's one of DD13's favorite activities now that she can drive one alone. I think your DS will love it!

He has driven one with my DH but never by himself. I don't think he is as confident with driving them as he is in the rest of his life. I told him that it's easy. If not than I will let him drive me around for a change.

Ok this cracked me up. Your DS sounds like such a character. Good for him. You should get him a tee shirt with SV on it.

He is a character. I always joke that he is "my special little boy". He is wonderful and fun, but a little querky! For those who watch Big Bang Theory, Sheldon is my son. I have recieved several random comments from people saying they were watching the show and Sheldon reminded them of my Jackson. , he's perfect to me!

Club Level Cast Member Greeting

Our last club level stay at the Poly we were met at the entrance by the Castmenbers and taken directly to the Club Level for check-in.

Is it the same at CR? Do I pull my car up to the main entrance?
Thanks.

I don't watch the Big Bang Theory but I do think Jim Parsons is funny as he// and yes he is quirky too. Quirky is a good thing. Our friends DS is named Jackson as well.

I sometimes call Sheldon my pet. A little nutty, but that is endearing to me!
Check out my ticker!!!

After you go past the guard, pull-up to the entrance and tell them you're staying CL. Hopefully, the guard will have let them know you have arrived and they will send a CL runner to escort you up, but this doesn't always happen at the CR. If it doesn't, just tell them you want to check-in on the 12th floor (or 14th if you're staying in the Tower Club level).

I've got a couple of questions.

1. On other resort threads (can't remember which since I change so frequently ) people have made note of the selections for room requests while doing online check in. I may have missed it in the first few posts but has anyone seen a Contemporary room request list? I heard it was like a check box system, rather than a comments section. Thanks!!

2. Has anyone ordered the chocolate monorail? I was thinking about getting on arrival night for the kids but we ended up getting a ressie for the Dessert party. So it may not be worth it.

Thanks!!!
