I was talking to my dad today about all the inspirational celebrities that speak at FFL. Jay makes us all feel like we could run an Ironman with him. Joe S makes us all feel normal & have fun. Nicole shows us that we can do anything & overcome everything. etc etc etc He was really impressed.  Grin 

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (76.232.154.110) Wed Jun 22 09:00:22 PM EDT 2011
Mike S - what was the temperature today? I'm a little concerned about the heat. We'll need to remind the kids (and parents!) to stay hydrated.

Registered User Brenda mom of Marissa, 23, dx'd 9/89  (70.62.253.42) Wed Jun 22 09:00:25 PM EDT 2011

I remember the year that there was a hurricane that skirted the west coast of FL at the same time we held FFL - we had delightful weather... in the low 80's breezy, and a bit overcast.

Registered User Desiree Parent of Teen  (71.1.228.39) Wed Jun 22 09:03:04 PM EDT 2011
Same here my daighter is very carb controled at 60 carbs.

It is brutal here, I have suffered heat stroke twice and I have worked at Disney for 9 years, weather is different this year.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (76.232.154.110) Wed Jun 22 09:03:42 PM EDT 2011
Barbie - We don't use 'Disney menus' - we have CWD menus. They have portion sizes and carb counts for every morsel of food that is out on a buffet table. Carb counting is very easy.

Registered User R WV, Diamond's Mama, 16, dx'd 2003  (71.61.217.148) Wed Jun 22 09:03:57 PM EDT 2011

Pam - I'm glad that you can get away to your CWD Family for a week. You've had a very emotional and challenging year.

Registered User barbie Noah's mom  (76.4.118.253) Wed Jun 22 09:04:53 PM EDT 2011

Registered User barbie Noah's mom  (76.4.118.253) Wed Jun 22 09:06:16 PM EDT 2011
Will the buffets have a list of carbs for each dish, Noah is still only allowed 70 carbs for dinner?

Registered User Pam L. mom to Sarah, 18, dx 6/19/02  (50.131.147.8) Wed Jun 22 09:06:25 PM EDT 2011

Why the increase in the Step Club?

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (76.232.154.110) Wed Jun 22 09:07:24 PM EDT 2011
I'd really like to know how many gm CHO in just one ear of a Mickey Bar... oh, nevermind.
Yes, Barbie - every single item will have a tent card right by it listing the portion size and # of carbs.

We had new shirts made this year (reflecting the 10,000 steps). I think they are white with cardinal lettering... but I could entirely be making that up. I ordered them a long time ago! Rolling Eyes

Registered User barbie Noah's mom  (76.4.118.253) Wed Jun 22 09:09:11 PM EDT 2011
I know, Noah is kinda nervous about a pump, just got used to the shots so it will be good for him to see others using it and to see one in person.

Registered User Mike dad of Matt dx'd @6 yrs old  (71.126.225.185) Wed Jun 22 09:09:14 PM EDT 2011
especially when people "shake" the pedometers

Barbie - there will be SO many parents there to help you if you have a question - and Mike is there at every single meal and snack break and you can ask him anything. I know it's scary, but take a deep breath and just jump into it! Smile

This is the craziest weather that we are having across the nation. We were just ahead of the tornadoes when we were driving to Boston. Had NO idea. Just thought it was windy and only a little rain. HUGE storm right after we made it to Boston. I guess ignorance is bliss.

Ooooh, sky to the west is eerie shades of gray and rose. It stays light here until 9:30 so it's not normal. I'll hear sirens should they go off. No other noise here tonight.

He will see many teens on the pump. One of Sarah's friends decided to go on the pump after watching Sarah and other kids pumping for a few days at FFL.

Registered User Brenda mom of Marissa, 23, dx'd 9/89  (70.62.253.42) Wed Jun 22 09:14:16 PM EDT 2011
Dawn, it's better to purchase tix in advance if you get the right price. Those lines at the Coronado can get very long.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (76.232.154.110) Wed Jun 22 09:14:52 PM EDT 2011
Everyone please address your conference questions to me (email is fine). Conference arrangements are different than usual Disney protocol.

The problem with that Brenda is we were planning on going on Saturday after the scavanger hunt and I dont want to purchase them if my little guy is too tired. LOL I just like to cover all the bases...

Registered User barbie Noah's mom  (76.4.118.253) Wed Jun 22 09:15:41 PM EDT 2011
I am not sure if you can still purchase it, I could make a call and find out, but I would think you could. I also wanted to buy one for my father, Noah's grandfather and someone at the childrens with diabetes website told me I had to purchase one once I got there. So I am going with that.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (76.232.154.110) Wed Jun 22 09:15:43 PM EDT 2011
Conference tickets need to be purchased ahead of time.

Registered User Brenda mom of Marissa, 23, dx'd 9/89  (70.62.253.42) Wed Jun 22 09:15:55 PM EDT 2011
Dawn, that makes sense then.

Do you know Laura if we can purchase conference tickets there at the hotel

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (76.232.154.110) Wed Jun 22 09:24:53 PM EDT 2011
Avohra - The sleeping rooms? Not giant, but certainly big enough. With the renovations the Resort completed last year, there's a bit more 'moving around' space as the furniture was downsized just a touch. We've been holding FFL conferences at the Coronado since 2001, and it's always been very comfortable for a family of 4 (especially with 2 small children).

Hello Avohra! Your son Arjun will be with some lovely and loving individuals with his age group. There are age appropriate crafts, games and too many things to list that keep them occupied. Also, those children with diabetes are in the best of hands as there are at least 2 CDE's in the room with the group leaders. A fabulous child adult ratio!

Pepper Market: a place where they seat you and get your drinks. You then take the card they provide and walk into the food area where you ask for food from the various "stations." There is stir fry, Mexican, typical American (burgers, hot dogs, pizza), salads, bakery, etc. They stamp your card and you pay the cashier as you are leaving. Trying to explain this to first timers who may arrive early and not know how it works.

Avohra, we drove. You can walk, just takes a few extra minutes.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (76.232.154.110) Wed Jun 22 09:39:19 PM EDT 2011
The Resort is spread out around the lake. If you are in Casita 1-3, you are right next to the Convention Center. If you are in Cabana 9, you are next to the Convention Center on the other side. If you're in the Ranchos, you are across the lake. So, it depends. But, do not hesitate to use your vehicle to get from one place to the next. Whatever is easiest for you is what you should do.

avohra, it depends on where your room is. If your room is in the Casitas, it might be worth it to drive. It is walkable, but the heat/rain can be an issue, esp. with little ones.

Childcare... for the a.m. and p.m. short breaks, you will come to the childcare area where we will have snack food for you to select and give to your child. For lunch (we have a 90 minute break on Thurs and 2 hours on Fri), you will pick up the kids from childcare and take them to lunch with you. We offer the childcare snack breaks right in the room to cut down on check-in/check-out procedure time.

Registered User Brenda mom of Marissa, 23, dx'd 9/89  (70.62.253.42) Wed Jun 22 09:56:28 PM EDT 2011
For teens, there are some timeframes where they can choose sessions. They are split into age groups because there are so many teens. There are specific sessions for them at certain times, such as Boy Talk with Jim/Korey for ages 15-17, then Boy Talk or ages 13-14. Etc.

That's a bigger question than I can answer on the chat. Some of the focus groups are full; the ones that you are still able to sign up for (i.e., the sign-up allows you to do so) have descriptions online. My inclination is to tell you to see how your family feels on Weds, do the Fun Run at 7:30! - have breakfast, and then walk down to the focus group area and see if any of the walk-in groups look interesting to you. It's hard to predict with young children what the 'mood' of the day is going to be!

There are some focus groups where children are very welcome. Others that are just for parents. Or just for teens. Or just for adults with type 1. The 'intended audience' is specified in the group description.

Julia, Maria wanted to send Ethan some cheetos along with the picture but they just wouldn't fit in the envelope. Hope he is bringing a large supply.
