I have a question about king beds too. I'm going back and forth about asking for one myself.

Would it be better to have the two beds (and therefore be able to pick the more comfortable one) or just the one king bed and have a little more room in the room? What's your opinion?

I'm glad I'm not the only one I go back and forth between wanting some extra space on vaca but saving money by staying at a value. I do adore and love my DH, but after walking all day I love a sprawl.

Ha. Even if it were just DH and I on this trip, I'd still opt for 2 double beds. Sleeping with him is like sleeping with DS4- only worse because he's, well, adult-sized!

Anyway, there are 3 of us, so 2 beds it is. I'm hoping DS will opt to bunk with DH; however, sometimes I think DH's moving around bugs DS. With 8 days, I will put someone in the bathtub if I don't get my sleep!

DH and I are here right now and have two beds. We each get our own and are enjoying the chance to sprawl.

I think the King rooms are also handicapped accessible so guests that require a handicapped room would be assigned to those rooms first.

If we have a second bed in our room that is not being used I always end up using it as extra storage area.


So what's up with all the Love Bugs? We have been in October a few times and we've never had to deal with love bugs. They were plentiful on a visit to Orlando we took in April one year and they drove my DS crazy. Are they normally out this time of year? Hope they are gone in 8 days.

I've seen a couple love bugs and that was it. Been here since Tuesday the 1st and will be here until the 9th.

They are normally a May/September issue and only last a few weeks, so I would expect they should be gone soon. Like after we are there and head back home 10/25.

Those small cooler/fridges don't feel cold inside unless they have food or drinks in them. The start-up instructions (which aren't left in the rooms) usually say to put a few bottles of room temperature water or other liquids in them for a few hours before making adjustments to the temperature because even though you don't feel cold/cool air in the fridge itself, it's still working properly and cooling at an appropriate level.

Information I could have used a couple days ago. My husband said it wasn't even turned on but since I didn't see the button I can't say if he was mistaken. A good heads up to anyone who sees this.

Since you're talking fridges, I wanted to pass along a tip that has helped us a bunch. It's a good idea to leave the door open on the cabinet that houses the fridge. By doing that, you are improving air flow which really helps the fridges get ice cold. We have never stayed at Pop so I'm not sure if the fridges are in a cabinet like they are at the other resorts we have stayed. Our last 2 trips I started doing that and the water bottles in the back actually started to freeze. When we would leave for the parks I would leave it wide open (after day 2 of coming back to the door being closed we started leaving a note for mousekeeping to leave it open and they would). When we were in the room, I would wedge a wash cloth in to prop it open. I used to think the fridges were just not that good. But not anymore.

He sees his cardiologist 1x a year and this past May, the pressures on the right side (where the pulmonary valve originates) were twice as high as last year but we were assured that there's nothing to worry about at this time- it could be a growth spurt or the fact that he was less than calm (ha!) during his echocardiogram.

Believe it or not, one of my sisters is still smoking. It's such an addictive thing. She quit for a little bit after Mom died and then tried again after my DS was born (we live 12 hrs away but when she was here after his birth and diagnosis, she realized she needed to be smoke free for his best interests). Unfortunately, that didn't last and she's still smoking.

Oh yes! The absence of motorcycle helmets gets me too!!

Thank you! Our world has been opened wide to so many kiddos who have gone through so incredibly much in such a short time. Some have sadly lost their battle. I'm amazed, daily, by the strength of these children and their parents.
My husband was in a motorcycle accident about 6 yrs ago and the only thing that saved him was his helmet. So she's pretty vocal about it. Lol
My niece was diagnosed with leukemia when she was 18 months old, she's 9 now. When I visited her at CHOP it was heart breaking. The parents of these kids along with the kids are my heroes. They, including you and your family, go through more than they deserve to.

WOW! I'm glad he's all right. Thank goodness he had a helmet on!! So scary. DH's uncle was in a slow-speed car vs motorcycle accident (he was on the motorcycle) w/o a helmet. He nearly died and has a TBI as a result. He is now estranged from his sons b/c of it. He literally lost his right mind.

I've heard of CHOP. It has a great heart hospital for kids. I'm sorry your niece had to battle that disease. So scary. I'm so glad she's all right!

Sorry, I know this is off topic, but I just had to share.

My daughter fell off her 3 year old mustang when she was 10 years old and he accidentally kicked her in the head as he was trying not to crush her. He punctured the helmet but thankfully it protected her head and she was uninjured.

There's no doubt in my mind that helmet saved her life, or at the very least from severe head trauma. We became a VERY pro helmet family after that!
