[b] in that case, do you have insight as to what Disney might be like at Fort Wilderness in October? I'm kinda hoping the weather will be dry enough to enjoy the outdoors, and warm enough for swimming. And no crowds.[/b]
I've been to WDW in October three times: once with my family and twice with the aforementioned Disney group. :-D
It can be very hot during the day. It can be crowded, depending on the conventions and whether Food & Wine Festival has started.
We're moving to Tampa this spring (mixed emotions on that one) so I'll experience all that central Florida weather first hand.

We live a few hours from Disney and find Oct to be a great month to visit if you are NOT going during Halloween. The weather is cooler, hardly rains and it is easy to get a sit down reservation to Tony's Italian restaurant. Safest for those with food allergies that we have been to by far at Disney. There are aslo a about 10 days during the month that you can buy a ticket for the night time and they only allow about 5,000 (maybe less) people in the park and it is great. My friends went this year and there was no waiting in lines. There was some candy past out but mostly toys and no nut candy that they could see. It has something to do with Halloween month. Hope this helps.

absolutely it does. Thank you jean, as well.
If I'm not mistaken, there were several "family night" guest only night time "open late" park dates we attended during the "50 year" celebration this last april/may. [i]Awesome[/i]. It was truly: a "Carry them home asleep from too much fun" time. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] Gotta admit, I loved it too. At one point, we were running through the line markers to the front (no line, actually) to watch the "3-D" shows over and over and over.......

Barb,
Of course it's a given.
If you look, you'll see that most people don't bother with the redundancy.
One high volume poster has adopted this as her style. Nothing wrong with it; it's just her style.
Don't feel compelled at all to post in that manner.

(edited to indicate that people are entitled to their style - but just answering the poster's question)

[b]Hi Everyone,
I haven't posted in a couple of years but it seems that each post I have read over the last couple of days has included some sort of disclaimer to the effect of "I'm not a physician, this is not medical advice, etc."
I thought that was a given on this website. I thought everyone knew this and I don't know, kind of trusted each other and each other's judgement (i.e. nobody's going to come sue you because you suggested something that didn't work).
It's kind of a drag to have to work this into each message and it changes the tone of the whole place.
What does everyone else think? [/b]
speaking of which, *tone*, I mean, have you checked out the "Limerick" section in the "Rudeness and Venting #3" thread in "Off Topic"?
The first two were pretty interesting as well. Rudeness Threads, I mean.

Just another type of thread:
[url="http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/Forum22/HTML/002061.html"]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/Forum22/HTML/002061.html[/url]
Am I wrong, or were there some threads on "stalkers" too?
Acutally, what *I've* always felt influenced "tone" was people adopting aliases in which to post their messages.
But [b]that's[/b] never been [i]my[/i] style.

My post was not meant to offend anyone. I have read a couple of posts on the venting board but to be honest, it all sounded very hostile and I stopped.
As I said, I haven't posted in a couple of years but I thought this was a SUPPORT board....

Barb,
Sometimes people post here and it seems as if they are using this board for medical advice.
Once in awhile you'll see a post that asks for some immediate answer about Benadryl or going to the ER. That is pretty scary to think someone would ask "us" rather than go off to the ER.
Sometimes I feel it necessary to post that what I am saying IS NOT advice but what has worked for my family.
I think that is what you are seeing. It does not mean to take away from the friendly nature of this board.
Peg
