It's funny though, sometimes we sleep too well, aka too long without waking and we will wake up a little stiff from that just because we slept too long! If you go there then can do a pillow analysis and help you get the right one for you, it gave me tremendous relief.


this is really good information. I said something to Denny about it last night and he said, "who is Cynthia?" Doh! Never mind! I'll explain it to him today when I'm more awake. He just couldn't connect the name with my East Meets west roomie!

Heat is good in the morning but ice is better at night as the muscles are inflamed and need to be calmed down. I thought the idea of ice on my neck sounded like torture and was amazed iwht how good it felt and how much it can help!

I really hope its not chronic, I will try the ice even though it seems weird to me. My neck felt great when I went to bed so I did nothing, but it did feel a little wierd on the treadmill.

Well then, we will definitely need to put it on the list for October. It might be a good option after lunch at HBD! We will need something relaxing after that meal.

I don't think I've really ever cooked in one of the full kitchens, but I certainly have used the washer/dryer.

When Brian and Nick were about your boys ages we did a studio at SSR and it worked. But I knew it was going to be the last time we could do that because they reach an age/size where they need their own bed. Looking back, we would have had more space at OKW but we loved the location we had at SSR so it worked fine. It was one of those trips where we had lots of extras planned - like Daytona and KSC, so we really weren't in the room much. Let me just say that the OKW room felt a lot bigger than our BCV studio. I say save the points while you can because you will reach a point where you can't.

Part of my problem was that I was holding my neck wrong while I did pretty much everything and things like cardio (bike was awful) made it quite a bit work. They could tell just from an initial exam at both the Chrio and the Osteopath that it was a huge issue (like my neck was curving the wrong way lol!).

That is hugely helpful. It's looking more and more like the big family trip will be in July of 2013 which is kind of brutal point wise, or will be if I add the 2 nights this summers cruise that we are considering doing! With the July heat I'm concerned about location but I'll just have to see what is available at 7m. We can certainly stretch things a LOT farther with a studio, it's just the laundry I worry about but maybe a split stay within the same resort part 1b and part studio would be the easiest option. After the moving 3x of the last trip I'm not sure I want a split stay again. Then again, if I add the 2 nights to this trip, we will be moving 3x!

I must tell you that you can have more time in the costume area you see on the Studio Backlot Tour. There is a tour called 'Backstage Magic' which is a full day tour of all four parks. You get to go behind the scenes of different attractions and departments, and one of them is the customing area. It was amazing!

Thanks and I did not know that about the buildings being torn down for Lights, Motor, Action. Interesting.

I'm glad that your neck is doing better.
Wow - You really have been through every treatment. My girlfriend just had the cervical fusion. I am very afraid of that. I guess I just need to find out if its simply muscle spasm from bad posture or if I have arthritis/spinal stenosis, or a herniated disc. Ugh! I can't imagine being that uncomfortable AND not being able to take NSAIDs. That is a total bummer.

Thanks! I'm so glad you are enjoying the pictures. And if you are a big fan of Osbourne lights than hold tight because I think I took about 130 Osbourne light photos. That's not too many, do you think?

I hope that's simply what my problem is. Denny says I am always leaning over my computer and that is probably contributing to it. I usually sit on a stool at the kitchen counter so I am using bad body mechanics. I am not sitting on the couch with a back rest.

If you do a split stay definitely do the larger unit second. When we moved from the 2BR villa at Kidani to 2 rooms at CSR it was quite a shocker. Come to think of it - we are doing the same thing this summer but it will only be Denny & I (and Possibly Nick) remaining at the world and we'll be at BWV so I think we can survive.

The laundry thing doesn't bother me that much, but I can see where its a concern with a longer stay and when trying to pack light to avoid excess baggage fees.

That tour does sound pretty cool. I think its fairly expensive but doesn't require a park ticket. I know I would really enjoy it. I have been wanting to take another backstage tour for awhile. I am definitely going to save that until Denny and I have another solo trip. Thanks for the suggestion!

It was on the pricey side but worth every penny. Now you just have to plan a you and Denny trip!

I am totally doing that. It will probably be right after Nick leaves for school - Sept or October of 2013. Originally I thought I want to take Denny to HHI then, but now I think I want to go to HHI next spring and disney world in 2013. I also wouldn't mind taking a Disney cruise right around then.

Stool is ok, if your posture is good while you are doing it. Couch can be very bad if you sit wrong so it all just depends. Going in and getting educated on how to sit and stand can really help a lot. At my last orthopedic massage he actually taped my back as a bio feedback reminder. It was wierd but it did help!

I would definitely do larger the 2nd part, don't need laundry at the start! On a longer trip it is really nice to be able to do it in the middle. So what is the scoop on the summer trip anyway? How many nights in a treehouse and then what?

Glad it went well, and sorry we missed it! I hope you're feeling better.

I think we're going there in July. I'll let you know how the burger was.

I've looked at so many trip reports that at this point I'm not sure if I've ever actually done the Backlot Tour or just read about it a bunch of times. If I ever did it, it was a loong time ago.

Interesting. Well, I made the appointment with my PCP today and I'm thinking she may want to do a cervical spine film. I have Denny's insurance so I can't even get my stinking X-ray where I work. Then I am asking for PT and a chiro. I am so out of alignment today it is not even funny. I actually can't stand it.

June 10 - 15 is in the treehouse. That was 211 points and I figured that was enough for my bro and sil. The next three nights are in a studio at BWV and that is for me and Denny and Nick if he decides to stay. If he wants to go home on the 15th that is fine with me. If we fly we will arive on the 9th and I will either using up the points Denny has for the country inn and suites or stay value for a night. I would love to try the new animation place. If we decide to go to KSC I may just book a couple nights over in Cocoa beach and stay a couple extra nights. It all depends on how much time Denny can get off from work. I really want him to nail this down so I can plan the details on both ends of the trip.

I am thinking the 4 day Dream cruise on October 20th (our anniversary is the 21st) and then 4 nights at AKL and then I was thinking 4 nights at HHI .....OR.......a longer stay at AKL and skip HHI to visit it next spring. I don't think I can go a full year from October 2012 to 2013 without some kind of Disney fix. There's also a little part of me that would also like to get one more trip in during December 2012 before my AP expires. What chance do you think I have of talking Denny into that? I would love to go right after Thanksgiving.

Thanks! My neck is a lot better, but its still not right. Honestly, that show was so loud you should be very glad you missed it. Plus the tickets were $10 so it would have been a little cost prohibitive and your kids would have been bored out of their mind. I had the only quiet song out of a set of 21 and I'm sure the grannies in the group were relieved that their ears got a break!

You Do that! I'm sure the burgers are great and I know the onion rings are awesome, but I think I made the right choice given the way the rest of the day went.

You know it, although you did not need to be a DIS veteran when I was there. Common sense was all it took to negotiate the parks since there were a lot of first timers there.

See what happens when you spend too much time on the DIS. You don't know what's fact and what's fiction. Perhaps you need to ride it this summer AND volunteer to be in the show!
