Thanks for the transportation info, I was hoping someone would know. I'm sure everyone heading there in the near future want to know.

ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish I could picture the new décor...I am joining the GF crew awaiting disneydreamininMI pics But if you like..I bet I'll like. I miss the prettiness of the décor already though Hope there's a Mickey Lamp
Thank you so much for the hug and the offer. Will do.

I don't think you missed the sends offs, people snuck away in the dark of night!

We'll miss the old decor, too - seeing as how we haven't gotten over the loss of the old, old decor!

I have a stupid question...Are the doors to the rooms metal? Meaning would a magnet stick to them? I am thinking about decorating our door during our stay.

I don't think a magnet will stick, but not positive. If I recall, people have discussed this for Christmas and have not had any success. I'll post a photo.

Couldn't find the one I wanted (close up), but here is one:


Ooh, found it!

Sending big hugs and healthy thoughts Cancer is such a horrible word that infiltrates so many lives. I am so happy to hear that he is getting expert care and has a positive long term prognosis. It will make him an even stronger person and be an inspiration to many.

Gah!
Pictures! Please!
I have no idea why you're touring the parks and spending time with your family when we need to see pictures of the newly renovated rooms. Sheesh. Some people.

Kidding. enjoy, but when you get a sec....get us pictures!

Evening!

We are going to Disney THIS week!!!!

We had a bit of a scare.. Mom was admitted to the hospital on Friday. She passed out and hit her head, arm and shoulder. She is fine and was released today. Dr.s don't know why.. So I am planning on getting her a EVC in case.

I wanted to say about the door decorations.. You can make a cloth banner that you can hang over the door.. Then pin or sew your decorations on. Disney floral uses this to decorate doors.

Oh, my - so glad your DM is OK, sorry for her pain and your worry. Getting an ECV is the best thing, absolutely. We used Walker Medical when I needed one for a knee injury, they were great - there are several companies, one right on property at BWI, I think.

i am just seeing this, omg. how heavily this had to have been weighing on your mind. i completely understand why you waited to talk about this but i am just so sorry that you have had all this going on and we weren't able to support you. i have had three friends with i believe the same type of cancer, and they said the same, that it is so curable. but as his mom... the nightmare you must have been enduring all this time. i am so sorry but so glad for you that he is doing well.

COMPLETELY off topic but I just had to say.....I love Bruno Mars! He is such a class act. That halftime show was such a display of talent. He and his band are just incredible live. ...and he is so adorable

Now....back to regular programming. Keeping my fingers crossed to see some new room photos when I sign on to the DIS tomorrow morning before work.... No pressure or anything

I enjoyed him too. :-)

Lots of work to do for school/work, but maybe when I take a break later I will have pics to look at!

Just checking in now that we are back in our room! I won't be able to share the photos from my camera until I get home because I use the software on my desktop computer for downloading and editing. But I also got some cell phone pics, I'm just not sure how to upload them? Can I upload to Shutterfly or Snapfish and then post them here? Thanks!

Thanks, Beth. I really appreciate it. Yes, it has been with me every day since we heard. Even though I know it's going to be OK, that word is sooo scary, especially when it's connected to your child.

He really is doing well, he's working full time and has had no ill effects from the Synthroid.

LOL about off topic - what?! Where?! Glad the half time show was good, we didn't watch. With 2 AFC West rivals (I know Seattle has moved, but I still haven't gotten over it, lol) in the game, I didn't watch.

Yes, you can use any photo hosting site you like. As Scott MC said, many people use Photobucket (I do), but there are plenty of others out there. I think there's even one here on the DIS, but I haven't checked it out.
