Hey Stacey - Jesse's comments were funny today. He still wants to be a teen!

he just wants to go to the teen dance.... the problem is that 1/2 of his friends are in college, the other 1/2 are seniors... I just told him he'll have plenty of time to spend with them...

I know. It's a little bit of an awkward year, that first year of college. Jesse has a lot of friends - very cool that they are spread out over a few years worth of ages.

Speaking of food... we have Mike Schurig on the chat tonight. Mike is our wonderful dietitian - aka The Food Dude - and if you have any menu questions, now is the time to ask!

Rhon, are you asking about the Club lounge? We do have that, but I was not able to get all 100+ of our staff into club rooms; there aren't that many. Some people have club access, but not everyone.

Registered User Brenda mom of Marissa, 22, dx'd 9/89  (70.62.253.42) Tue Apr 26 09:10:50 PM EDT 2011
Hi all.
Laura, for the "Photos of your first Conf" collage, do you have anything specific in mind--groups, our family, etc.? Of course, the photo guru has many photos on his puter.

Hey Brenda! How is Tim feeling? Headache better? That sounded scary.
For the collage... whatever photo you'd like to bring that is representative of your first FFL experience. All fair game.

I will look for photos.

Not sure - will have to ask Michelle. I am going to see her this weekend. That's really fun for the kids. Rhon, you are staffing the 10,000 Steps Club table, too, right?

Registered User Brenda mom of Marissa, 23, dx'd 9/89  (70.62.253.42) Tue Apr 26 09:15:03 PM EDT 2011

Dinner was yummy... left early, though. They were all still eating. I had a 40 minute drive back and some iffy weather. We HAD to celebrate the end of the semester, though. It's a tradition!

Registered User R WV, Diamond's Mama, 16, dx'd 2003  (71.61.217.148) Tue Apr 26 09:15:47 PM EDT 2011
Yep. I'll be at my table all week. :) And I'll have the 1st FFL pic board. And I should have Pam's sig quilt when she's not there.

Registered User BettyS...CA Mom to Shelby 14 dx'd @ 6  (67.180.170.51) Tue Apr 26 09:15:53 PM EDT 2011
Rhonda has to staff the (what) 10,000 steps? I thought it was 5,000 steps. Did we change that?

Just took my machine in for servicing to make the quilt panel. When that is done and it is folded onto the top of my suitcase, then FFL is real for me!

Yes. The Coronado venue is worthy of 10,000 Steps. Put on those sneakers and get to it! I bet you walk 10,000 in less than one day.

Very cool, Pam. Thank you so much for doing this. I find it really interesting what each person's 'moment of significance' is that makes the conference 'real and present.' For me, it's finishing the slide show for the banquet. That puts finality on the previous year of conferences and opens the door for this year.

Usually for us, it's the drive down, but I guess this year it'll probably be the packing & heading to the airport.

Hanging the quilt is very meaningful for me as well. Then walking through to make sure that they all are up properly. The teamwork involved. All part of the experience!

The color officially is cardinal red. It's pretty bright, but has a tinge of 'darker' to it. We did the Seattle shirts in this color last year, and everyone liked the color a lot. It's not like a lollipop cherry red.

Registered User BettyS...CA Mom to Shelby 14 dx'd @ 6  (67.180.170.51) Tue Apr 26 09:20:11 PM EDT 2011
Most definitely sunscreen and bug repellant. I am getting the Avon Skin So Soft Brand. It works the best, I think.

Re: packing... the good news is that you can buy most things right at Coronado. The bad thing is that the prices are exorbitant. But, you can always grab a ride from someone to a nearby (off Disney property) store and pick up whatever you need. We do that with snacks and beverages. Gets very very expensive if you rely on Pepper Market for your entire week.

Not sure, Rhon. There is a Disney link on the FFL home page about 2/3 of the way down. Click on it, and then look at the ticket options. There are some different ones depending whether you're buying after 6, one day, multiple days, park hoppers, etc.

OK, thanks. I checked the Disney page, but it didn't have after 6 listed. Might not be done with the hunt by then. I dunno.  LOL

I'm thankful for everyone's feedback 2 years ago... "Can we please have an option OTHER THAN a park day?" Got us thinking in this new direction, which I think is healthier and easier on everyone. We will have a DJ at the pool all afternoon, too. And Sports Central will be open for those who want to play v-ball or b-ball indoors, air conditioned.
