i stick to good old american coca-cola now. it may not be good for you but at least im not tossing it up later.
This happened to us when DD6 was only 8 months old. Her pediatrician said just to use the tap water down there to make her formula. It was a 10 day trip and about 1/2 way through she got vomiting and diarrhea, but no fever. Her dr. told us as long as she didn't have a fever the fresh air would do her good. That was a fun 5 days - it was everywhere when she did.

We were the first in the line for Honey I Shrunk the Audience - packed room when one of the vomit episode happened. I didn't think a baby could throw up that much at once. I was covered!!!! It was like the parting of the Red Sea when I had to get out...."Excuse me baby threw up"....everyone else "Ahhhh.....Ewwww"(once they saw me) and just got out of the way.

Safe journey!
Live feed will start on the second but it will be off the balcony and only if the wifi can handle it. Last year when we were at the cabana wifi could handle HD feed so most likely it will work for that but our room feed was terrible. See you guys when at the poly!

I can't wait for the feeds and everyone's reports! I just love hearing how gorgeous it is

I have 5 months to go and I'm already having stress dreams about vacation. We're in MK but getting NOTHING done. Just wondering around while I try to herd the family toward a ride. Last night we finally got to the castle, but had to stop to eat and nap!!! I'm waking up super stressed!

I have dreams like that all the time, except it's Christmas Eve and I haven't done any shopping or decorating yet.

Honestly, all we really do know is that DVC is probably coming to the Polynesian.
Thanks, Guitarob! I was just hoping for that "magical bump" into a theme park view rooom.

So glad to hear about your upcoming trip! Unfortunately for me, I won't be there to see you this year. Our family trip is at the end of July and we are going to CSR then BWV. But of course, you are probably happy not to see the nutty lady at the pool bugging you

Those of you who will be at the poly between June 1st to June 9th, I would like to meet some of you. We have rented the premium cabana all day and night at the poly on the 7th! We are planning a quiet dinner at the cabana around 6p but the rest of the time is wide open. If the live feed is working we can even set up an event to say hello to those who werent fortunate enough to make it on your trip! So pop in and say hello! Of course my name is Carl and my wife's name is Azure
Bummer - I would so like to meet you and your family! Have so much fun!!!!

I used to bring the drink packets like Crystal lite to put in the water but a few years ago, we noticed that the whole family (me, DH and the 2 kids) were needing to pee every few minutes. My husband claimed it was the water we were drinking and from that moment on, we haven't had another drink of Florida tap water. And once we went to the bottled water down there, our bladders stopped freaking out. But we are spoiled with our crisp Mountain tap water here so there aren't many places I like to drink tap water anyway.
