We can get excused for five days for educational trip, after that they are unexcused and I think it is three unexcused absences in a quarter results in fines, although the principal does have some discretion with that portion.

Our school is pretty lenient- as long as as it's not during standardized testing week, and you talk with the teachers to get homework before you go, they're pretty cool with you taking your kids out. Although, as they get older, the stress of catching up all the work, starts to put a pall on the vacation- so we haven't done it lately. But DD11 will be missing half days 4/5 of the last days of school to perform in a play (one of those days, her class will be going to the show, so she won't be missing anything!)

So exciting for all of you going so soon! We still have 47 more days to go here. I already have suitcases out and started shopping for toiletries!

I am the director of a food pantry in town. That building is presently under 2-3 feet of water. It breaks my heart to think of all the food we will have to throw away. Many families have lost their homes and they could use the food but we will have to throw it away. I hope to get into the building on Sunday to take a first look at the damage.

Hurry up days and get here. I could use a vacation.
You must be near us! We had a hospital nearby and a town evacuate. A lot of damage to several homes and businesses. Then the crazier weather got crazier with snow yesterday!!! So buying some suntan lotion for our June trip was helpful for my mental status.

Our DD16 on her first "pulling our kid out of school" trip at age 10 had one teacher giving us a little guilt. Well she had a solar power presentation due shortly when she got back so we took some photos of Ellen's Energy (and I think Spaceship Earth) and she included the concept of these rides in her report. We also got some solar power Disney bobble heads that she had as well. She got an A and showed how educational Disney can be!

Now I'm going to re-scroll the picture of the Y&BC because I need positive warm thoughts!!!

Here, it's the parents business if they want to take their children out of school for a family holiday, not the school boards. Not to sound naive, but they'd really arrest you for taking a family holiday?? sorry to sound stupid, but that doesn't happen here.
I, too am amazed a this. I am retired teacher and had may students go to Disney. I just ha them keep some type of journal and bring in pictures.
We treat our children and grandchildren to a trip every year. Two years ago my son' daughter from his first marriage was taken out of school for our trip. We went for at her birthday in November. Her mother got letter from the school 2 weeks later letting her know that any more unexcused absences that year would result in the mother going to court! I was shocked. They live in Newnan, GA. Needless to say, Madyson will only be abe to come on trips during school vacation time now.

Not really a "resort" question, but since you guys know everything......Where in the World can you get frappacino's? My husband likes to get them everyday we are on vacation. I know where you can get them at Disneyland and California Adventure but where can we get them at WDW?

Three people in our family had the ham and gruyere cheese sandwiches. Very large and very yummy! My son had the kids turkey sandwich and really liked it.

For dessert my dh and I had the chocolate cream puffs which were SO GOOD! And the kids both loved the triple chocolate cupcakes.

My biggest recommendation is to walk around the restaurant and check out all the little details. We were really impressed by everything!
Thanks CT Disney! The sandwich you had sounds right up my alley! My plan for my aunt & myself is to do lunch there on our MK Day & Ohana for dinner. Now I need to figure out the best time to get into lunch line! Did you get pictures with the beast too?

Thankful for all the walking we do at Disney, otherwise I think the average weight gain would be 15 lbs! Everyone posts such great food experiences!

Well, she was probably jealous!

At least our trip is toward the end of May so there is not much school year to "slack off" in after that!

Oh, and can you please do a tutorial on multi-quote???

We are excited!!! This is our first trip. Maybe we will see you there. Just look for the young senior couple with big smiles!!!

Haha! Flying in from CA, I'd be looking for a 5:00 a.m. flight... I can never get to WDW soon enough. Have a safe trip.

You know I have one already, right???

Not sure if it works on phone apps, but here are the directions:

How do I...

Multi-quote more than one post?
There are 3 buttons on the bottom right corner of every post. The normal Quote button, the Multi Quote button ("+) and the Quick Reply button (scroll and quill). Click the middle Multi Quote button ("+) on all of the posts you want to quote. The buttons will backlight red when you select it. When you have selected all of the posts, go to the bottom of the page and click on the POST REPLY button. You will be taken to a Dialog box where all of the posts will be quoted, ready for your answers.

No kidding! We actually wore pedometers one trip to see just how much walking we were doing- I think we hit 12,000 steps minimum everyday, and Epcot was 18,000 (but still managed to gain a pound or too from all the noshing! :lol: )
