    Thanks guys for the info. on the 5th floor and the difference between a dedicated and a lock-off. My daughter and her very tall BF will be staying with us so I am definitely rethinking the 5th floor request because of those slanted ceilings! A lock-off might be nice for them, having the separate entrance and kitchenette. Is everything the same in the one-bedroom section in terms of size? If I am staying as a cash guest, will they even honor any requests with regard to dedicated or lock-off? ( I can't believe that earlier today I thought I had no questions!)
    Thanks again for your quick replies.

    I am a believer in Vicks, although I have not done too much this season, but have a little. I am sure a lot of our high winds had a hand in mine. As I have said I know Mountain Cedar is one of my downfalls, just have been lucky the past few years have been light, but this year was major and it hit me with a big punch. I drink a lot of hot tea which helps my throat, but I have to be careful of eucalyptus, that stuff makes me cough worse. My grandmother was a believer in a cup of hot water in the microwave to boiling then when it comes out put a dollup of Vicks in it and breathe the steam.

    Hope all groupies have had a great weekend.[/QUOTE]

    I HAVE to have a teeny bit of Vick's under my nose to sleep. How weird is that? I am used to it and it's just my "sleep smell."

    We had a pediatric nurse tell us this remedy. Before bed, slather the bottoms of your feet with Vick's and put on a pair of heavy socks.

    I have heard that one, but never tried it. But I do the nose one. It is soothing.

    Mr Muush is a Vick's Vapo Rub addict!

    Every night, he climbs into bed. Grabs his Vick's, takes a huge sniff of it.
    Rubs it under his nose and on his chest.
    Sniffs it again and dozes off to sleep in Vick's heaven.

    Shhhhhhh. Our secret.

    PS What does rubbing it on your feet do? (Actually I don't want to give him any more ideas!).

    supposedly it will stop one from coughing.
    Maybe I should have tried it out a couple of weeks ago!!!
    I do love my vicks, I just am so hot natured anymore that I cannot sleep with socks on, so have not tried it myself.

    Happy Belated Birthday Barb! Sorry I missed it, hope you had a wonderful day.

    Love the pics from your trip Di. Looks like paradise. I'm sorry to hear you had somethings stolen. Great positive attitude though.

    About the Vicks....I put it on my son's feet when he has a cough. An old wives tale that says it should stop the coughing. It seems to help.

    Hey folks!!

    twokats and me are in the process of starting the next thread. We will probably just do a continue of what we have going right now and name it as VWL Groupies...yes, we love the Lodge, a lot!!

    Keep your eyes open as this should take place within the next 2 days.

    Happy tuesday groupies.

    The original Joourney Into Imagination attraction opened on this date, March 5th 1983 in the Imagination Pavillion at Epcot Center. The attraction has gone through multiple changes through the years and is now known as Journey Into Imagination with Figment. The little purple dragon has served as the attraction's mascot since its inception.

    I have to admit, after all this time we've never ventured into that attraction. ;) I do try to see every thing at least once.

    Tuesday brain teezer:

    Tom Sawyer Islands has two caves on it. What are their names?

    Hi Groupies! :wave2:

    Yesterday it finally started warming up a bit here as it approached the 70's. But the highlight of the day was getting to meet Horselover (Julie) as we strolled through EPCOT. I do have a picture but haven't uploaded any photos to the computer yet so that will be soon I hope. Thanks, horselover for a nice little meet! :)

    Today I am hoping to track down MiaSRN62 (Maria) for another shake & howdy. Always great to see fellow Groupies in the World. ::yes::


    I think one of the caves is called Injun Joe's Cave...though they may have changed it to become more politically correct. We haven't been on that island for many years now.

    Journey into Your Imagination is a nice air-conditioned break during a hot summer day...at least that's how we used it. And it rarely has any line at all so we have done it many times over the years. Like you said, Eliza, we try to do everything at least once. For instance, when we were walking around with horselover yesterday, we found out that the "Living Seas" area at EPCOT has dolphins and we watched a training session they had scheduled for them. :)

    Oh boy, a new thread! How exciting! Thanks Jimmy and Kathy for continuing on as our head mooses' and keeping all important things in order. DDad and I appreciate very much the work, time, efforts and talent you put into this thread for all of our benefit! :grouphug:

    Nice to hear from you Granny! I was reading about Orlando's l-o-w temperatures - even Ohio had a warmer start to the day yesterday. So nice you were able to connect with Julie. I hope you and Maria are able to meet up too. Wishing you sunny :sunny: days for the rest of your stay!

    Thanks for the warm :) wishes, Di. Today is by far the best day with a high about 77 degrees...still windy but overall quite nice.

    We did a very quick meet with Maria in the WL lobby as they were running a bit late for their ADR at WC. But we at least got to spend a couple of minutes with Maria, her daughter and future son-in-law as her husband ran off to secure the table for them (the things we men will do for our families! ). It was great to meet Maria, and we look forward to a trip where we have more time to spend together.

    It was also nice to spend some time at our beloved Wilderness Lodge, catch a quick bite at Roaring Fork and sit outside by the pool with the birds as we munched our lunch. The little ducklings were running around while Mama Duck sat quietly by the edge of the pool. So all was right with the world as we sat there, enjoying the ambiance and listening to the sounds of excited children splashing in the pool. Good stuff!!
