    POR murphy bed is only 53 inches long...I had hoped in the Royal rooms they would put a full size but do not think so, :(

    No!! :-) I *think* the CR daybeds are pull outs instead of old school daybeds that would be more like sleeping on a couch. Correct me if I'm wrong somebody more CR knowledgeable!

    Good luck! How many kids do you have total? When are you going again? Any discounts?

    The royal rooms only have 2 queen beds. No daybed or Murphy bed or anything.

    We stayed at CR 8 years ago, huge daybed, the new ones fold down to be the size of a twin bed, the ones at BC look much smaller...we are going second week in Sept...hoping FD will come out...we have three teenagers, girls will share queen and dh and I share queen, leaves daybed only option for ds...he is so easy to please, but do not want him unable to stretch out after long day of walking...

    Going to catch up now but wanted to comment on the daybeds.

    CR Daybeds are fold downs. They look like a couch (see below) and then fold down into a twin bed. DD slept on it in Dec and Feb and was very comfy and she is used to a double at home. I even cuddled with her and it could have easily slept there. Much more comfortable then the daybed we had at YC.

    Lol! That won't work for a 6'3 teen then! I had heard they were bigger, but that isn't very big!!!
    Yeah...he needs to be able to sleep! Hopefully the CR ones will work.

    Hello! Finally some quiet time and a chance to catch up with my RC family :flower3:

    Shelia - great price on the flight down, I guess you will just have to stay longer so you can save money on the return flight :lmao: Oh brrrr, it is cold there. I will send some FL sunshine and warmth your way :sunny:

    lmhall2000 - I honestly don't remember how long the CR daybeds were. I am almost positive the same size a twin bed, so however long those usually are. I will say they were definitely longer and more comfortable than the YC daybed. And NO, it never gets easier :rolleyes: We were lucky enough to try out the resorts we were interested in for our quick 2 night stays before deciding on our 4 night mini vaca. When are you going again? In Feb we paid about $325/nt for CR TPV.

    Jen - I honestly don't remember if JetBlue credits, but my gut feeling is that they do not. We usually fly on JetBlue and I have never gotten a credit. I don't know what it is with girls at this age, they are just so mean :mad: I hope DD isn't taking it to heart and can brush them off. Sarah has a couple girls in her class that are just downright MEAN and I don't get it.

    Jeanette - OH NO, poor Bree :sad1: and poor you!!!! My brother was the ER frequent in our house, the nurses could literally fill out all the paperwork when they saw my mom walk in. She always jokes that she is amazed social services never showed up at our house. I cant even count the number of ambulance rides he has taken. I am so excited to hear about your trip (and any changes that may pop up)! Enjoy your time away and just ENJOY yourself :hug: P.S. My outside lights are all blue for Autism Awareness month :goodvibes

    Wookie - LOVED all your pics!!! Looks like you had a great time! I am sure it was great to get away and out of the house :rolleyes1 That is too funny that the boys didn't even notice you weren't driving home :lmao: Oh and yes, those margaritas looked soooo good!!! I think after seeing all your pics I am going to try to do a Sea World trip this fall, we haven't been in so long.

    TARGET LAW - :lmao: everyone seemed to get very upset that I broke the Target law yesterday. No need to punish me, I just had to get Sarah and take her back since I could not decide on a lunch box for her. I vow to never leave Target empty handed again :rotfl:

    MAGIC - did you ever find the code? I didn't get a chance to look yesterday.

    I better post this as I start to get distracted with other things, LOL!

    I'll be back in a bit.

    I am anxiously awaiting Southwest and Airtran fares too. I miss the days of low airfare. With all these airlines consolidating, there isn't enough competition anymore.

    Booking Alert!!!

    So I've spent the morning playing on the internet. Here's what I have booked:

    POP: Oct 20th - Oct 27th - will be changing these dates depending on airfare - BB from when I was there in Jan

    OKW: Oct 25-Oct 27th - yes I know I'm double booked

    AKV Jambo: Oct 27th - Nov 3rd - this won't change

    OKW: Nov 3rd - Nov 7th - decided to leave before the busy weekend

    Of course I may need to add on at the end depending on airfare.


    And I just checked my ADR date is 200 days .... sounds lucky to me!!! :rotfl2:
