As a teacher and a non drinker there are days when I think I ought to take up drinking. Some days need something to make them better. All teachers will agree. Full moon is especially bad.

Yes, teachers are retiring / throwing in the towel at an alarming rate here......I'm thinking they might need to toss back a few more !!!!

Full moon in springtime at a junior high is the ultimate bad. :grin: Add raging hormones to the usual full moon craziness and it makes for some days where even the non-drinkers are longingly eyeing a bottle.

Yup, another teacher lurking here, anxiously awaiting my BC trip - 10/10 to 10/14 - and really enjoying this thread and its predecessor. While everyone here seems really nice, I especially have to send a shoutout to NinjaMom! You are completely hysterical in the most awesome way. I totally admire your child-management techniques, and wish more of my students' parents were like you...it'd make my job a lot more fun some days. :grin:

Thanks for all the info (and laughs) everyone!

My kindergarten team has taken up cookies. You can have those at lunch. We're going from half day to full day next year, so I'm thinking we might need to add candy to our cookies, at least for the first few weeks. I should probably start baking now....

Well it has been a biter sweet first day... My friend who was supposed to come with called yesterday to tell me that her dad had taken a turn and was dying... She didnt come and he passed away this afternoon.

I had a nice walk around world showcase and had Fish and Chips in England for lunch followed by about 4 hour at SAB! Dinner tonight was at Flying Fish and I highly recommend the diver scallops mm mm mmmm! I am now laying in a chair on the beach watching illuminations while the movie is playing! Perfect end to a great first day!

For those who asked about water a few days ago. The market sells 1 gal containers for $2.95 they also have 1.5 liters for $3.95.

If anyone wants to know anything let me know I'll be glad to help if I can.

Movie time!

I'm so sorry for your friend's loss. I hope you're able to enjoy your time at WDW. I spent NYE at Disney three days after we buried my father. A lot of people thought I was crazy but I found it comforting and it's still one of the best memories we have as a family.

Thank you for posting while you are there.

Anyone been when it was sold out before and was is beyond crowded?

Also, We like our chairs for the pool, so I am thinking we are going to be annoyed! DH especially. He might resent me for not going back to POP where the chairs are plentiful.
Disney had been doing a better job of 'packing' resorts. They are doing a better job of offering deals, having races, offering festivals so there isn't as much of an off time anymore.

We've been there several times in June and July when the crowd calendars put WDW at 8-9's and we never had a problem. We always found chairs at the pool. Now granted they weren't in the prime shaded locations but we were always able to find chairs.

Now as far as being "beyond crowded" I can't tell you that. I think that would be subjective and an individual preference. But personally I wouldn't swap a booked deal at the BC to Pop because of crowds. And I've stayed at Pop, All Stars, etc.....
