Even if he won't put it on, it will probably be way more fun to watch the kids swim and enjoy themselves, than the baseball game would be!

They have 2 TVs . The bartenders are very friendly so ask them to put it on. Unless they have people already there watching 2 different college football games I am sure they will put the Red Sox / Tigers game on one of the TVs.

I could have sworn I saw a picture of the fridges with a gallon of milk in it. Another resort thread says a gallon won't fit. I ordered 2 gallons from Garden Grocer for Saturday, any one know if a gallon will fit?
Thanks

**never mind found the old closed thread with the picture and there is a gallon of milk in the fridge**

I'm here now - and I'll admit, I'm a little disappointed. When we checked into our room, I called housekeeping immediately. The beds were made, but had no purple and gold comforter on them!
When the person came up, they explained that they are no longer using the comforters and just the white sheeting. The room just looks so.... bland.
I hope that they eventually replace them, the room definitely needs the pop of color!

From what I understand, all of the resorts are changing out their bedding. The bedspreads/comforters are being replaced with a fitted sheet on the bed, a flat sheet, a light blanket and then another sheet on top. I know that they are already doing this at Pop and CBR and possibly others.

Can we say food issues?

I'd actually be very happy with this as I hate heavy comforters and bedspreads.

But I do understand wanting a bit of color.

I also hate when hotels don't use fitted sheets as I am a leg mover in my sleep and just tucking in a regular sheet on bottom means that I will have clumped up sheets under my legs.

It sure can! I was absolutely freezing in my room every night earlier this month.

We actually had the bedspreads, but I always take them off. And it was cold in there!

Bottom sheet, then sheet/blanket and another sheet on top, kinda like a blanket sandwich. It's actually quite popular at many chains. I've loved it as I sleep warm and often only want a sheet, but when cooler I like the blanket inbetween the sheets as I find the sheet texture to be more comfortable than a blanket.
