I also slept on a sofa bed in a BCV studio and found it surprisingly comfortable. I was only there for 4 nights but I ran the ToT 10 mile race during that time so I'm sure I would have felt everything little lump if the bed weren't comfortable!

Thanks so much for the replies--I will let my friend know. Her kids are on the small side, so they should be good to go!

We are in Orland Park....Downers Grove isn't too far....15-20 miles away. I am sick of the temps being below 40 degrees.....can't wait to break out my flip flops and work on my feet getting tanned since my feet, nose and shoulders are really the only parts of my body that tan. :-)

113 days until BC, and SAB and a Kitchen Sink and a Sunken Treasure and the list goes on........

My BC friends will appreciate this. I'm going to apologize because its off-topic....

I'm talking with a lady at the beauty shop (I'm really dating myself here and sound like my 80 year old mother!) and she mentions they are going to WDW on Thursday. No research and it's their first time going. She is not excited at all. I felt so bad for her because while she has no expectations (in fact, she even said that they are going because it's on her husband's bucket list), I just know they are going to hate it. It is going to be so crowded! They are doing the DDP and she just made her ADR's on Monday. They are eating at some of the least popular restaurants.....LTT, Les Chefs de France, Hollywood and Vine, etc. since that was all that was available. Their tour book is the Birnbaum Guide.

I feel sad for them because what should be a magical trip, the lack of planning and going one of the busiest weeks of the year will most likely turn this family into a bunch of WDW haters.

Back to your regularly scheduled BC conversation.........

Where are they staying?

I was at a restaurant in December and the two couples at the table behind us were talking (loudly) about their recent trip to Disney "We ate at the steak place in France (sic) and we had to make reservations 2 months in advance!" My family gave me the stink-eye that said "Don't you dare get involved"

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

Honestly, with only 2 posts, I would close the account and open a new one. There's probably a way to change it, but my way is fast and easy.

Welcome to both the Disboards and the thread!

Yes, howdy from me, too- I'll come through later today and give you and a few others a formal a bit later today.

As far as your screen name- I'm not sure there is a way to change it. A few of us regret our choices of screen name when we first joined.

You can set up a new account with a new name. I'm not sure if you need to use a different email address to do that or if you can have multiple users (family members) on the same account. (ETA: I agree with AliceIn- close the original account and start fresh)

It's odd I had trouble with the option popping up the other day, but then it did. My Disney Experience, My Reservations, click on your resort reservation and it should show you how much is left next to the little resort icon and then a "Make A Payment" in blue you can click on.

I have added you to the list. Which resort?





Thanks!

Hahahaha. This trip will be at the Yacht. We've been there a few trips ago....I want to say this past July. We loved the location!

We also booked another trip for July(at least airfare is covered), but haven't decided where to saty for that trip just yet.

They are staying at POR. I gave her all of my Disney secrets but I really don't think she is going to heed any of my advice. She asked me if I am one of those crazy people who books their meals 4 months out, to which I said, " I book mine at 180 days out so we can eat where we want". There's only so much Disney hating I can take. She thinks I'm nuts and I think she's nuts, so we are even!

Her and her husband are bringing her three kids....boys ages 14, 11 and 10. I hope at least THEY have a good time. But she said the 14 year-old doesn't even want to go...he wants to stay home with his aunt. They are such Disney Downers......

If you book a package & need to cancel more that 45 days out & you have only put the $200 down do you get it back eventually? Or is it lost all together? Or if you'd paid for package in full & cancel more than 45 days out do you get all of your money back Even without travel ins?
Thanks
