Lalabubbles, I'm so sorry to hear about your family member. You're in my thoughts and prayers.

Nanette, I'm sorry to hear about your friend's dad. You sound like you are having a fun solo trip! Enjoy the movie and your time on the beach. Two quick questions for you....are they saying anything on the news about TS Chantal hitting central FL? Does your room have a fridge? Thanks!

Thoughts and prayers to those of you experiencing the illness or loss of friends and family members.


I must confess...I am a Middle School Principal. Yup, the craziest of all. Full moons and low pressure systems make my job interesting. And, you know what? I love every minute of it! Middle schoolers are so full of life and energy...they keep me young at heart!

And, for those of you wondering, I plan on enjoying both a Sunken Treasure and a Gray Goose slushie while I am at the YC next week!

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.
The resort is sold out off and on all year. Almost once a week we are sold out. I really don't think you will notice a difference at the pool and if it is only towels sitting on chairs, I say move them. Most people actually at the pool have clothes too or shoes there. Towels to me mean they are gone and just were too lazy to put them in the towel bins. SAB is so large that you might not find a chair at the exact location you want, but somewhere there are empty ones. No matter when I walk by, I always can see some empty ones.

Thank you for posting while you are there.
thank you YCFan.

Thank you. Ok question one... nope nothing about TS Chantal yet.. though when I left NYC this morning there were flights delayed because of the TS, but those flights were headed to DR. The news just said more rain is coming, but we'll see if that happens or not. Today it was supposed to rain and it didn't! question twoI'm staying DVC so my room does have a fridge... I haven't heard anything here about fridges.. I did read on one of the DVC boards that I follow that the one and two bedroom DVC fridges were going to be ok, but the studio fridges were going to need to be replaced. I haven't heard anyone saying anything about no fridges in the rooms as of now...

Teena,
It's so good to see Bob up and around and so happy to be with Lily!


I'm sitting here wide awake at 10:57, and my alarm is going off at 3:30 A.M. so I can drive my sister and her bf to the airport for their magical Disney vacation! At this point...I may just push through and stay up....then crash. Hmm.

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!

Nannette and lalabubbles, I'm sorry for the losses you both experienced this week.


Oh. My. Goodness! Lily is adorable! She looks like a cherub. Teena, will you be back in Florida during the week of the 21st? I was hoping to come and say hello during my stay at BC. You know, before I meet up with Johnny Depp in the hot tub. Heh.


I am DISing as I do some more packing for my trip. Four more sleeps! I am a little bummed to hear about the fridge issue at Disney resorts, but what can you do? I read a bit of the thread on the Resorts Board about it. Looks like people are going apoplectic about not having a fridge to keep their leftover desserts in. As much as I love the convenience of having the fridge in my room, I am sure Disney wouldn't remove them all without a pretty good reason. And I'm sure not going to let the lack of a fridge ruin my vacation. C'est la vie, right?

Oh Nanette, I am so sorry about your friends dad.
I am glad you are able to enjoy your time though! Sounds great. I know your friend is too. :-)

We're in the same boat for DL next month - planned to eat breakfast in the room, but that's kind of down the drain with no fridge. The switch from regular room to CL at WDW has averaged us about $100 per night extra. For that price, it's a great deal for our family of five. But DL for our dates, it's $300/night extra for CL - crazy! Anyway, at WDW without a fridge, I would definitely upgrade to CL if the extra cost was $100 night or less.
No such luck with the discounted rate to upgrade to CL tonight! I'm not sure what we're going to do for breakfasts yet as I was counting on a fridge for quick "cereal and fruit then out the door" breakfasts. We're not big dry cereal bar fans. There are standard view CL rooms available, though. Now I just have to figure out how to get us into one less expensively, seeing as the traditional 14th anniversary gift evidently isn't a hotel upgrade.

What you really need to do is climb in your sisters suitcase & go with her!
