Hi Mackenzie - This chat is for anyone who is planning to come to the CWD Friends for Life conference this summer in Orlando. If you're looking for other kids to chat with, you should try the other rooms. This is going to be mostly parents.

You are welcome to stay and chat, as long as the conversation is about the main topic (the summer conference). That's what the parents will be coming online to talk about in a few minutes. Ok?  Smile 

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (68.255.244.206) Mon Mar 12 08:56:56 PM EST 2007

Mackenzie - You were brave and spoke up first. If your family comes to the conference, make sure you come over and say hi to me and remind me you were on this chat, ok? I'd like that.

I am Laura.  Smile  I run the conferences.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom  (68.255.244.206) Mon Mar 12 09:07:28 PM EST 2007
The plans are crazy. We have so much going on this year - very exciting. I'm so happy that Kevin Covais was able to confirm being with us for the conference - and singing at the banquet. I got an earful from some folks last year who were a bit upset that Kevin was a surprise - so this year, we're letting everyone know nice and early!

You'll have to let us know if Coronado requires sweaters/long sleeves inside like Sea World.  Smile

Yes, the Coronado can get a little chilly despite the VERY warm temps outside!

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom  (68.255.244.206) Mon Mar 12 09:09:43 PM EST 2007
The convention center is always on the cool side. A sweater or sweatshirt that you can just throw over your shoulders is a good idea.

Laura, are any other VIPs in the making that you can't tell us about yet?

Registered User R Mama to Diamond, 12, dx'd @ 9  (24.88.238.80) Mon Mar 12 09:09:58 PM EST 2007
Yes, I love tanks, & found out the hard way I should've at least had short sleeves or a sweater.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom  (68.255.244.206) Mon Mar 12 09:10:45 PM EST 2007
I remember the first year we held a conference at Disney, I walked outside from the cold air conditioning, and it was literally a steambath outside - it had just stormed. My glasses got so foggy I couldn't see anything. I hope it's not that hot this year - but I'm not counting on miracles!

Registered User R Mama to Diamond, 12, dx'd @ 9  (24.88.238.80) Mon Mar 12 09:10:47 PM EST 2007
Kevin was an awesome surprise & I'm very glad he's coming back. Diamond & Kara have been raving about it too.

Registered User Emerie Emerie's Dad  (64.136.27.229) Mon Mar 12 09:10:49 PM EST 2007
We don't know about Orlando.

Well, Jose, if you can't make it this year, maybe next year or a regional cnference. They are wonderful learning experiences and the kids have a blast meeting others with diabetes.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom  (68.255.244.206) Mon Mar 12 09:13:31 PM EST 2007

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom  (68.255.244.206) Mon Mar 12 09:14:34 PM EST 2007
The best deal on park tickets is the link that is on the conference webpage. I even called Disney to verify the prices they offered us. There is only $1 difference between a 3-day, 4-day, and 5-day park hopper pass with water park. It's an amazing savings over buying tickets individually day by day. You have to buy them ahead of time online, though, and use the link.

Registered User Joann(MI) Mom of Victoria 6 dx at 2 pumping  (68.61.146.31) Mon Mar 12 09:14:36 PM EST 2007
There is a website www.wdwinfo.com that can give you info on park ticket deals.

Thank you, Brenda. I'll look into it. The reason we're in here is because my daughter feels rather alone in her struggle. I was hoping she could find a chat partner more or less her age. Thank you for responding.

Hey Teani - How are you?  Smile 
Yes, I understand how expensive this can be. Disney is not cheap - but I have to say that it is the absolute best place to hold a conference like this.

Connie (BC) at least you don't have to worry about food during the conference - there is a ton of it!

Registered User R Mama to Diamond, 12, dx'd @ 9  (24.88.238.80) Mon Mar 12 09:19:32 PM EST 2007
I don't think Bob will be able to get a longer leave time for it, so we'll probably only be doing Disney on Saturday, so we'll just need 1 day tickets. I'll go to the site later & check it out. I haven't been to travel yet on base.

Registered User Teani Mom to Craig 17  (70.146.250.248) Mon Mar 12 09:20:05 PM EST 2007
We are hoping to make it again this year. Maybe I can volunteer to help with the teen dance or something.

You're right about the ton of food! Each person during the conference consumes about $500 worth of food between Tuesday and Sunday. It's amazing... but it keeps people happy and bgs in range!

Rhon, my understanding is that the tickets you can get on base are comparable, and don't have tax added. So you may want to go that route.

I can't imagine anyone eating $500. worth of food, unless it's overpriced to begin with! But not all meals are supplied if I read it correctly

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom  (68.255.244.206) Mon Mar 12 09:23:57 PM EST 2007
If you need a room, book it asap. I initially started out with a room block of 2,500 'room nights' (that's the total number of nights we expect people will stay). We have already surpassed that. I've added another several hundred on - but those will get reserved quickly. When the hotel is sold out, it's sold out. We'll identify overflow housing, but it'll be a drive. S, best to reserve now!

That is the correct price on food - at ANY convention held in a large hotel, the meals are quite expensive. And we provide a lot of meals and snacks between Tuesday and Sunday. Our very generous sponsors pay for most of them. Most people have no idea of the finances behind a conference this big. It really surprised me when I was first learning about it.

Nice to meet you, Jonathon. Chime in if you have questions or comments.  Smile 
Liz - I just about fell over the first time I looked at conference menu prices. But, you know what? It costs what it costs, and our sponsors are happy to support the biggest chunk of it because they love to see our kids having such a great time and the parents connecting. So, I'm happy with that arrangement.

Hey Debbie - Have you dug out from all that Tahoe snow?
Rhon - Let's see - the teen trip - we put Diamond on a bus to MGM, give her a ticket, tell her to have a great time on the rides, and pick her up at 6.
Not!
Just kidding...
Actually, all the kids will get on the chartered buses around 9 a.m. (with the 12 chaperones) and head to MGM. We have a private 'home base' area that is air conditioned and is where they can keep extra supplies, and where they will come to check in several times. We provide lunch and snack $$ (disney dollars). Bus will come back around 6. Details to come a bit closer to the event...

In reality - the conference is priceless. The cost of the conference is minimal considering the meals (for all, or near all, of the family), the educational sessions, the goodies that the vendors give you, and then the friends that you meet for life

Renee - The Saturday Benefit this year is the Magical Memories Breakfast, which is held right at the hotel. Disney princes and princesses will be in our ballroom 'holding court.' The kids can meet them, get autographs, have photos taken, etc. The characters are OURS - no one else in the hotel can come in. Afterwards, we have chartered buses to take us to Magic Kingdom. The tickets for breakfast are $25 and the proceeds go to the Education for CWD Foundation. And you need to provide your own park ticket.

Harold is some exercise guy Laura encountered. He gets everyone warmed up for the Thurs. a.m. Fun Run.

Harold Sanco is - hmmm. How do you describe Harold? I think he calls himself Human Caffeine. He does the warmup with us before the Fun Run - and then he is also going to be leading some easy exercise sessions for those interested. I haven't worked those in the schedule yet.

Well, I can't say it's a 'party' atmosphere, but it's definitely fun. During the day, the focus is on learning (and with the kids, the group leaders like Lauren incorporate the learning activities into the fun). For those who are really looking to relax and have a vacation, you should seriously consider adding days onto the conference (before is better than after). You will be busier than busy from Tuesday to Sunday.

Renee - There is still plenty of time to register. No worries. Don't wait until June, though. We may well be sold out by then. When the space is 'fire marshall full' - that's it. A couple of events - in particular the banquet and the Magical Memories Breakfast - have limited seating. So that's what I'm referring to in my other posts.
