I remember seeing the PnP request when I was doing my online checkin in May!
Mine is all grown up, at least he thinks he is, he will still always be my baby!

And in college! That's why we really need to stay in moderates now! LOL!

Ain't that the truth! And I have TWO of them in college! And, therefore not only a moderate for us (although I love CSR so that is no hardship on our part), but we had to cancel our trip this year because of increasing tuition costs!

Conventions- buffets and other questions - if you are one of the conventioners - call your organizations rep and get more info about your convention at CSR.

I know during convention breaks - from this thread and others - the CS area's can get busy. At night, depending on the convention, the Bar area where drinks are available could also get busy.

On the positive side - when conventions take over the Casita area - the buses are not very crowded during the day - the conventioners are in meetings (why they are there ).

That's the muffins, rolls and assorted blah things ! No cinnamon rolls, etc. They are still avail. at Main Street bakery and are far better anyways!
I was so hoping they'd change it!!! I really wanted one of the new ones. I liked them better (sorry for anyone who liked the resort specific ones, but I like my MICKEY!) Oh man, I hope this sticks, this makes my day!!!

By the way, I just read the "Has Disney lost it's magic" thread and DO NOT recommend it for anyone with upcoming trips. It has put me into a serious funk...at one point I was even re-considering my decision to travel to the World.

Hope everyone has a wonderful time, I'd love to hear some happy stories!
I refuse to read threads like that. IMO, the magic is alive in everyone. So if Disney's lost it's magic, it's dead inside you. If you want to believe, you can believe. To me, all it takes is seeing the train station and the castle. Hearing the music as you walk into Epcot to feel the magic. If one snarky CM who's having a bad day and probably just needs a smile takes that away, well then...that's your problem. Go away and leave Disney all to me (I mean c'mon...I've been in the past year in August, October, a day in December, twice in February, and I have 2 trips planned before the year's up...I think I'm a reliable source that Disney has in fact NOT lost it's magic! )

You know, I am so grateful we've got it paid off.

You can add Jostens Adviser University to the list - July 11-14

I was just curious about the food situation, but I'll just wait til we get there to find out. I don't imagine any of the Jostens people will want to take time out of their day two days before things get started to answer my question about food!

I don't think of the Magic thread as complaints...at least that is not how it began...it began for those of us who miss the old days of WDW. My post was not a complaint - more of walk down memory lane..that's how posts were at first, but have not read the thread lately, so pehaps it's becone a complaint thread.

Aw, I'm sorry the mugs are no long CSR specific - I miss all the resort specific mugs. We would purchase just one to save as a memory of that resort and trip.

Oh, well...we'll just have to purchase one of the new ones too!

Next time, it might be easier for you to just post this link: http://www.disboards.com/showthread....vention+update

I understand from several people that Buzz's website has not been updated in awhile. I do note his convention list is the same as the one I have here, but other parts of his site I'm told have not been updated.

Also, to the person who asked about conventions and food. I've never been to a "convention" so not sure if they always cater or if everyone goes to Pepper Market. I know some people have indicated that Pepper Market can be really crowded right at the noon time if a convention is on lunch break so some of them obviously use the Pepper Market. We've never had an issue with crowds, but then we don't eat right at lunch time.

According to Theresa, they are now using the WDW mugs. I am trying to find out from JamesLynn and will confirm.[/QUOTE]

I have 4 RED WDW mugs from Pepper Market. Was told NO MORE PEPPER MARKET MUGS ! Was quite surprised as well. Our server David from Queens,NY (GREAT GUY!!) said they just changed over to new mugs ! There were major conventions going on while we were there but little to no impact on us in the resort EXCEPT parking was a nightmare (because we were in Casitas 3 right by Casitas 2 bldg. so they used our parking lot too. Again...so what !! We were at WDW!!!

Quite the storms here at Cocoa Beach yesterday. Very cloudy but warm today. More storms expected.......who cares...it beats Long Island and their 62 degrees!! We'd rather be here !

You are a doll to report in. PLEASE be safe in the storms. We await your return to yucky weather like the rest of us (okay...it's July and I'm wearing a sweatshirt last night in Chicago!) for a full report.

I was going to PM you, but am sure that many others would like to add to my message to you.....

I just want to thank you for always reponding to my posts. Some other threads I post and it just goes by unanswered (I am sure through no ill will). You have always reponded and I SO appreciate it ! Also, you are always so positive and I really like that about your posts ! You always take the time to acknowledge everyone and that makes this a great thread ! THANK YOU !!

He popped up on another forum, so he's still around. I know the "news" section has been updated with what sections have gone down and the new Rix Lounge hours. Maybe just the convention list isn't updated?

Sorry, I didn't actually read the magic thread. I just assumed it was complaints and would make me woe.

I want a mug for my car The old mugs don't really fit well, so I'd like one that does! Plus I love the design. I didn't really like the Year of a Million Dreams design though, so to be honest, last year I wouldn't have really cared. My parents have a Wilderness Lodge mug from 10+ years ago still in their cupboard!!

Theresa, thank you so much for the kind words. After the week I've had, you brought tears to my eyes with your kindess.

Yes, I know. Once I post the info here (or JamesLynn does), I noticed that Buzz then posts it on several other forums where he is a member.

Thank you for the link, KatMark.

I recently visited Buzz's site recently and noticed the same - seemed the updates here are more current.

Thanks so much KatMark and JamesLynn!!

Kathy,
Are you saying that you are now officially the new Buzz?

Keep up the great work!!! You are very knowledgeable and have a passion for CSR. I can't even try to answer a question as fast as you... you always have it covered! (I've tried in the past but my DIS time has been cut very short!)

Hopefully, some day in the near future, we will be back at CSR again!

Tim



P.S. I am very jealous of all the recent posters on this thread that are going to CSR. I want to be there too!!!!!!
