So very sorry for your loss . It sounds like you could use a group hug, but I don't know how to do that with my iPhone!!!

So glad to hear you had a great stay at the YC

We are doing a similar, but reverse trip in July- HRH then BC

That is heartbreaking about your friend. I have so much respect for our military and their families who all make such huge sacrifices.

I'm glad you have the move and thoughts of your upcoming trip to distract your mindss.

So sorry to hear this... being from a military family and marrying a person who was in the military this is so sad hear. Whenever I hear this kind of news it brings back memories of growing up on base. I will keep his family and yours in my prayers.

Thank you for all the prayers. We are very fortunate that DH's new duty station is a nondeployable unit. Unfortunately he has had to deal with more losses this year than anyone should have to.

(Not really) I've been inundated with "Mom will you sew this button on", "Mom where are my pool shoes?", "Mom I need more underwear".... the list goes on and on! What I want to know is how the underwear got to be 'missing' in the first place! If you see three boys running barefoot and 'nekked' around the parks they belong to me! Sigh......

Dee, we'll call our meet the 2013 Sunken Treasure Meet! We'll be at SAB most mornings and afternoons. If anyone else is around (Buzzy, you're not invited), you'll recognize me with my laminated Sunken Treasure recipe card and my nose might be tinged green....ya know how babies noses turn orange when they eat lots of sweet potatoes and carrots? Yeah, that'll be me, just green from Sunken Treasures. :drink:

How about the 2013 "Drunken Treasures" meet (the treasures referring to US). I am tentatively thinking of trying to arrange something late afternoon/early evening on Thursday July 18. Will keep everyone posted.

What does everyone think of Captain's Grille for dinner?

Sent from my iPad using DISBoards
We enjoyed our meal at the Captain's Grille back in 2010. We are going back again this year, with a special guest, incidentally on Thursday July 18.

Woo Hoo !

Can you all tell me what is a good tip for Mousekeeping? Should I leave an envelope daily with something. Just curious what most people do.

Also for Club Level if I bring a gift from home for the lounge CM's How many should I bring and when do you give them their gifts at the end of the trip or the beginning? Again just curious.

Thank you
We leave $4-5 per day for Mousekeeping (family of 4) and $2 per day for turndown service.

Coming up with gifts for the CL CMs takes some creativity. As others have indicated, gifts with local flavor from your hometown area, especially something to be shared, is a great idea. It is tough to know when- there are probably 6-8 different CMs you will encounter during your stay, and not all of them will be there every day.

More feedback and suggestions welcomed, folks.

We had to move to standard view, so I'm nervous about that, but I'll just cross my fingers that all goes well.
Dee, our new dates are 6/28-7/7.

Can anyone give me some feedback on SVCL rooms? I asked for a full balcony and daybed, not knowing anything about room configurations or views other than parking lot or roof top. After having looked at the photo thread, some of the SVCL room views actually don't look that bad to me.

Teena and Robyn, I'm thinking we won't make the Disers meet, as we'll be on the road before the roosters crow on 7/7, but looking forward to meeting you all at the resort!
New dates duly noted!

Nice clear view of Eiffel Tower, too, so guessing we'll be able to see fireworks from our balcony.

Weather is overcast and humid but actually not very hot. Guess that's the plus side of a rainy forecast.

I didn't post much on this thread, but truly appreciate all the info it contains. I feel like I already know the resort even though I've never stayed here. Thanks!
Glad to hear your trip is off to a great start.
