Seeing as how I have no idea how I even got that ticker on there, I don't know how to answer you question! Did I do it wrong? Can I change it?

3. We were traveling with six people.

By the time our Garden Grill ADR rolled around that night, tempers were flaring, emotions were high and everyone was just DONE. Next time we'll take it easy on arrival day and hit the parks the next morning.
Ah yes, the magical character meal on arrival day.
After travelling all day (and we're only a 3 hour plane ride away) it is a bad idea. We were exhausted and miserable and I believe that was the meal we finally determined dd was lactose intolerant. So the next few hours were spent in a bathroom. Never again.
Lactaid and no reservations for arrival night are now standard.

Hmmmm.... now I'm stumped. Maybe it's just some sort of technical glitch. You should have some idea how it got there. If it's part of your signature (accessible through the User CP link near the top of the page) it shouldn't show up when I quote you.

I looked at the User CP, checked my signature, and it doesn't even show that I have a signature. I did see a link where you can add a countdown to your signature, and that is how I did it the first time, I'm pretty sure.

My biggest regret from this recent trip? Staying at an
Epcot resort. We loved strolling to Epcot and going in the International Gateway. We loved having the option to walk or take a relaxing boat ride to Hollywood Studios. We loved our resort. Now the problem? I have spoiled us! I don't think I can go back to a value or moderate. Silly me....

This really depends on body type; it would not be necessary for everyone. You will only need it if parts of your body rub against other parts of your body when you walk. Chafing is not a pervasive problem otherwise.

That's what my husband said after I told him I ordered two! You guys scared me about this, though! Better to be prepared, I guess. We can throw one in the backpack.

Asking folks back home if there was anything they wanted whilst we were there. Had this list like War and Peace. Three days into the vacation we are like 'what are we the Disney Store' lol. With free delivery ... Spend most of the vacation racing around trying to get things on the list! Then try and get it in luggage...then trying to get the cash from people don't ask! Seems like we had to pay for the privilege as well. Never again!

Now we sneak off in middle of night ...

This is so me right now. We just got back on the 19th after staying at BC and LOVED every minute of it.

Very misinformed statement. I'm a petite woman who's weight flux between 126 - 135 pounds. It does happen when body parts rub but you don't have to be a certain body type. Unless you "body type" is bow legged" it can happen. The Body Glide product I recommended above is primarily sold in running shops. Ever see a overweight runner?

I don't think the poster meant to be derogatory. And, yes, there are plenty of overweight runners...I used to be one and ran with others who were overweight. Even now at 100lbs, my body is more pear shaped and my thighs get irritated in warm, humid weather where my shorts rub, especially cotton shorts. Body Glide is for all body types. It's fantastic on feet, thighs, arms and anywhere else that there is friction.

I ran a half marathon in January and am most definitely overweight, so... yes. I was also not the largest one on the course.

Fwiw, I primarily use my body glide on my feet, when I feel a blister forming, although I also use it on days when I wear a skirt to the park. I get mine at Sports Authority or Dick's; Amazon has it, too.

yes - there are lots of them. Go to a marathon sometime and watch. Lots of overweight people are runners.
