Aha! The infamous shirt color question... I KNEW someone would ask! They are light yellow (I think it's called buttercup) with turquoise print. Similar to what we had maybe 5 years ago. I loved those shirts.

Registered User Wendy type 1/pumper, quilt square number 488  (68.38.139.116) Tue Apr 17 09:03:21 PM EDT 2012

For newcomers, Mike S. is in charge of labeling all the foods at the Conferences. He works diligently with the chef(s) to make sure everyone knows those carbs. And, he has a separate, well-policed, area for gluten free foods. He has been called the Food Dude.

I've heard Fantasyland will be fantastic. I'm actually going to Orlando next week and will spend a morning in Magic Kingdom looking at the changes in the park so I can report back. No Mike... I won't go on Space Mountain with you.

Sarah is very excited about returning as a elementary staff person. She loved being with the kids last year. When she took her summer job, she made sure that she could get off for the conference.

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux Friends for Life, Sam's mom, dx'd 8/98  (69.212.228.242) Tue Apr 17 09:10:08 PM EDT 2012
The Marriott World Center has an entirely different 'feel.' We'll have a CWD home base on the left side of the pool by the waterfall (where we were 2 years ago). We'll have glucose and water, and CWD moms and dads volunteering to hang out there and meet people. Ours moms and dads are so good at that! Grin

Went to Disney 3 weeks ago, most of the new area wasn't open yet. They are building Belle's Castle from beauty and the beast and that project was still under construction. The train station, and "goofy roller coaster" were open in that part of the park. Also added a second dumbo ride there that was open.

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux Friends for Life, Sam's mom, dx'd 8/98  (69.212.228.242) Tue Apr 17 09:11:50 PM EDT 2012
Hey Ms Julia! You ready to open the gates at registration this year? I love the registration area at the MWC... with all of the wonderful CWD family posters lining the hallway.

Ah, Dumbo. More my speed.  LOL 

The question about Quilt squares - you can even bring them with you and hang them on Friday. Brenda - what date will Jeff need them if they are to be mailed to you prior to FFL?

We live in Oviedo. You are really close then. It is about 45 min to the World Center for us.

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux Friends for Life, Sam's mom, dx'd 8/98  (69.212.228.242) Tue Apr 17 09:14:44 PM EDT 2012
The MWC will definitely have activities by the pool and it will be packed (lots of children everywhere). Two years ago, they also had kids activities over by the quiet pool area which is near the spa. If you plan to go to any of the theme parks, go EARLY. The parks fill up, and when they reach capacity, they close. So if you try to get in during the afternoon, you may not be able to.

Registered User Brenda mom of Marissa, 24 dx'd 9/89  (70.62.253.42) Tue Apr 17 09:14:51 PM EDT 2012
Also for newcomers, make sure you have a light sweater or sweatshirt to wear in the meeting rooms.
Laura, are there fridges in the rooms?

I also want to remind everyone that - because of the holiday - we have a different Exhibit Hall schedule this year. It will be open on Friday from noon to 6 p.m. and then Saturday from 10-4. Not at all on Weds or Thurs. There's going to be a LOT of fun stuff going on in the Exhibit Hall on Saturday... and also the CWDecathlon in Sports Central (for kids of all ages). Harold is running that... much more to come.

Fridges are not a given in the rooms. If you need to have a fridge, and you didn't request one at the time of your reservation, you should call and request. They have more than the last time we are on site, but they don't have one for every room.

Registered User Brenda mom of Marissa, 24 dx'd 9/89  (70.62.253.42) Tue Apr 17 09:21:11 PM EDT 2012
Jason, on the contrary, they prefer the parents do their own thing. The teens are well chaperoned and even the ones who do not have diabetes will have things to do. If they participate fully on Thurs., I believe they will get a ticket to a theme park for the teen trip on Friday.

Lanitra, the age for the driving class, is that they have to have a drivers permit to be in the class.

Good question, Jason. Kids are in the sessions themselves. Parents are in Parent sessions. So, the teens are on their own. Their staff will let them out at the end of each session - you should determine a place where you'll meet up during each break.

Keith was going to come this year if he didn't get the job he wanted. He did get the job at Lawrence Livermore Lab that is too good to pass up. He is going to find out if he can get a few days off and attach them to a weekend so he can join us for part of the week. I hope it works out!

We are not having Focus Groups this year. They'll be back next year. With Wednesday being the holiday, it was difficult for many of the companies to staff these groups. Next year's conference is the week after July 4!

I think Monday and Tuesday prior to the conference would be ok days - but still very crowded. Go early, and when you feel 'done,' be done. There's no sense in pushing it when you're hot and tired. The parks stay open at night, so you can come back to the hotel for a swim and a rest, and go back to the park in the evening.

Yes, the Family and Friends Banquet on Thursday evening will sell out. Crystal Bowersox is performing (many thanks to OneTouch for sponsoring her participation at Friends for Life!)... she will also be visiting with the kids on Thursday in some of their sessions. We won't have banquet tickets available at the conference - you need to purchase ahead of time.

Laura, Something interesting has been happening at Disneyland and Disney World. Sarah went to DLand and was told that Disney no longer recognized diabetes as something that qualified for a GAP. This also happened to someone at DWorld. I even called DLand to ask about the change. No answer except that it is felt to be self-managed. The person at DWorld had the same experience. Sarah doesn't use the GAP unless the lines are very long and due to great training at FFL and reminders from mom when she was younger, she doesn't abuse the pass.

Yes, everyone has a name badge. Kids just have first names. Adults have first, last, and where they are from. It's a good idea for you to write your (parent) contact info on the back of your child's name badge just in case you lose the badge or each other!

You will get name tags when you get your registration packet. First timers get little ribbons to put on the bottom. When we "old" timers she you looking confused, we can try to help you. Also, all people with diabetes must wear a green wristband during the conference. People with celiac wear yellow. Orange means you do not have diabetes. This is so others can help you out if you wear green and are looking like you might need glucose or some other medical attention.

Brenda -- so if my daughter has both T1 and Celiac, she'll wear 2 bracelets, right? I don't have diabetes, but I do have celiac -- so I'll wear yellow?

It's about time to wrap up the chat for tonight. Does anyone have questions that we didn't get to? The hour goes by fast!

Registered User Brenda mom of Marissa, 24 dx'd 9/89  (70.62.253.42) Tue Apr 17 09:57:00 PM EDT 2012
Correct, Wendy R. The celiac bracelet will let you partake of the special GF foods. They are usually separated from the other foods to avoid contamination.

Also - re: bracelets and name badges - they also help us know who is with our group. We only take up about a third of the space at the MWC. There will be plenty of vacationers there as well. The bracelets and name badges let us see at a quick glance who belongs with our group (for example, at our meals and in our kids sessions) and who doesn't.
