    Thank you, however, Arline surprised us all, and is still with us. They moved her into rehab and out of hospice, and we're going to see how things go with a temporary feeding tube. If she has the potential for recovery, we're giving her the chance. She has some amount of brain damage and loss of mobility, and we'll have to take it day by day.

    This is great Elin! And she's not too far from you, she can have her independence but still come home.

    This is what I thought as well.

    I'm so sorry for your dad. :hug:

    Alison- sorry for jumping the gun, my reading skills have been a bit off this week. Continued prayers for her.

    Brandi - prayers for your father as well. My dad has battled cancer twice in his life, once 35 years ago (colon) and then more recently prostate cancer. Thankfully he came out if both, and I'm hoping your dad can remain just as strong even when it gets tough. If you need anyting, just let me know.

    we did not and I am kicking myself for not staying, but it was a great win... We watched it from the house at the very end.

    It took us over an hour to get from the park back home.

    Does anyone know when to expect Christmas decorations to go up in November. I've stayed at WL in the past and they would usually go up about 2 weeks into November. I didn't know if this was standard for all resorts or not.

    That looks so good! Wish I had a glass of jungle juice right now!

    My name is Amy, and I'm joining in on the new AKL Number Eight thread. Thanks for putting it together. It looks great!

    I will be at Jambo House from August 15th-20th with my 8 year old daughter, Eve.

    We leave Richmond, VA, for Orlando on August 7th. We will spend a couple of nights at All Star Movies, a few nights at Coronado Springs, and a few nights in a Royal Guest Room at Port Orleans Riverside, before checking in at AKL.

    Right now, at AKL, we have 2 nights in a standard view room and 3 nights at club level, but I am thinking about changing the reservation to all 5 nights at club level. What do you all think?

    Adding club level each night would cost the two of us about the same as adding the Disney Dining Plan per night.

    My first thought was to only do club level for the last three nights, when we will be sticking around the resort a lot more. But it would be nice to have a Savannah View room all five nights. And it's hot in August. It would be nice to stay close to the lounge and the swimming pool.

    I am just afraid my daughter won't be able to coax me into the parks at all those last five nights, if we do club level the whole time. :rotfl:

    What do you all think?

    Hi Amy :) I'd say if you're already thinking about it, go ahead and take the plunge. Firstly, CL is so wonderful, secondly the savannah view is so nice. There is so much to do at the resort, Eve might just be content to stay as well.

    You have quite the resort line up, sounds like a fabulous trip!

    I don't know for sure, but from the Christmas specials I've seen I think all the decorations go up the same time.

    Good afternoon, Js & Ks! :sunny:

    We got two loads of boxes into the apartment yesterday and the girls are headed up with another load this afternoon. I like the area their complex is in and their apartment reminds me of the one Bob and I started out with 39 years ago! :goodvibes:

    Brandi - I know you will be keeping a watchful eye on your Dad to make certain he is fine. You are a good daughter. :hug:

    Alison - Goodness... Arline surprised everyone, didn't she? I hope all goes well for you all.
