    Aw, man... so you really think it will be awful in January? We're going down for the marathon and really wanted to stay at the Poly for the same reasons as ninafeliz (2 infants in strollers). I've been following the construction thread (long time lurker, first time poster) and we're super hesitant now about it. It would be our first time in a deluxe... and first time spending mega $$$.

    Can I ask what you're planning on doing with the little ones during the marathon? We are going in Feb for the princess half and we will have my 3 yr old with us with no nonrunners

    Oh, sorry, we have non-runners with us. It'll be me and DH, SIL & BIL, DS (14mo) and nephew (6mo). Only BIL and I are actually running. I know they accept 3yo in places like Neverland and Simba's club (?) but I don't know if they'd be open during the race hours... maybe though?

    There is also an in house baby sitting service. I wish I could remember the name of it. They will come to your room and watch the kids and they always have fun stuff planned for them to do. I think it's Fairy God something or other. I will try looking it up.

    Good morning all! Dd is still sleeping, so I figured I'd take this time to ask a quick technical question. I have the photo bucket app on my phone, and I can't seem to remember how to get the image from photo bucket to my post. Which option do I select when to copy the image? I know it's not the email one. TIA!!!

    On my phone, on the photo bucket app, when you click in the photo, it gives you four options to copy the image:

    Direct, HTML or IMG. Or email, but I know it's not that one. Any ideas which one it is? Thanks so much for the replies!!
