Talking Way to GO!

You will see from the ticker though that I have now saved nearly enough to pay for our tandem parasailing on Bay Lake Running and the stepping machine have become my new addiction. Your encouragement means a lot. You must have known. it's been a rough day

Apologies to all for using this as a therapy board lol
No apologies needed, at least from me! I, too, noticed your ticker and wanted to say, great work! Keep it up! I have never smoked myself, probably because my grandparents did a lot and I just remember the awful smell their clothes and house had. So it turned me off. But I can still recognize how hard it must be each and every day to continue to make the effort to be smoke free. So, I just wanted to say, I think the ticker is a wonderful tool to use. When you get the urge, try coming to the DIS and racking up some posts here and there to just see that ticker increase!

I think you have inspired me to work harder on my exercise plan.

And now back the regular scheduled program or being excited about PORFQ and all our plans for a great time at WDW.

In that frame of mind, how long or far would I have to run do you think to burn off the calories of a beignet (did I spell that right?)

We didn't find the sheets scratchy or beds uncomfortable. I think bed comfort is very subjective. Some like an extra firm mattress, some like soft, and any level in between.

Wow Andre, I had no idea wdw hosts dragon boat festivals!! Is this a first, or a yearly event? That would be so much fun! I used to paddle on a team. Still do, but it's an outrigger team now!

Not sure if it's Annual at Downtown Disney, but it's certainly quite regular. Just got an update that the ferries for Port Orleans will be less impacted than the other resorts - normal POR/POFQ/DTD ferry service will be running every day except the main day of the races (19 Oct) which will have no service until 5:30pm.

Usually by Thanksgiving the resort decorations seem to be up, not sure if there's a specific timescale though.

We were told by a resort manager that holiday decorations go up (at all resorts) by the end of the week prior to Thanksgiving...sometimes it could be the beginning of the week of Thanksgiving if it includes an elaborate gingerbread/chocolate display like BC or BWIand of course, GF..but they have their own timetable for that one..

Can anyone tell me where the Movies on the lawn and the marshmallow roast are located? I'm thinking about my room requests... and am thinking I'd like to be away from the movies.

Thanks!

Going back Feb 16 - 21! Can not wait!

I find the Queen beds at POFQ hard, and the King bed just fine.

This year if the beds seem hard I think I'll call and investigate an egg crate topper. We travel with our own pillows and cases, and I highly recommend that! It's worth the space in my suitcase IMO. I can handle a lot of sleeping surfaces, but a pad pillow... can't do it.

Thank you so much! I suddenly thought about a DIS ticker because I am on here pretty much every day lol

Beignets, I don't really like them (I know!) but I figure anything I eat is more than gone with 2 laps round the world showcase
