Sunscreen on a May trip?

intercot.com - Fri, 2018-04-06 16:25
What's the Orlando sun like in May? I need to be prepared for what kind of sunscreen and how much - I HATE the stuff, but I'm Scots-Irish so my family says I'm so white I glow in the dark. I freckle like crazy and have never had a tan in my life. We went to Mexico in March of last year and I found I had to slather it on and repeat frequently. Similar for Florida, I'm guessing? (I've been in September - is it like that? Mostly we've gone in December and only ever hit a day or two that needed it).

What are you watching?

intercot.com - Fri, 2018-04-06 13:31
Just checking in here with a few viewing suggestions...

We recently finally watched "The Guest Book" which we had all 10 episodes on our DVR, really cute by the creator of Raising Hope and My Name is Earl. I don't know if I would recommend it to my mom ha ha but we loved it. Cute, short, it's been renewed for Season 2. Can binge watch on TBS.com or the TBS app I think.

We are in the middle of Season 2 of Santa Clarita Diet. Silly gore but after watching all of Justified between Seasons 1 and 2 of this show it's hilarious to see "Deputy Raylan Givens" in this totally different role. Netflix. (Justified is good if you haven't seen it.)

Just started "The Trust" on FX, a slightly modified take on the Getty saga which just had a movie made about it. Donald Sutherland is a VERY creepy grandpa and the "Fixer" role is great. Two episodes have aired and they are available on demand to catch up on.

We also just started "Billions" on Showtime Anytime, only a couple episodes in and might be too slow for hubby but I'm enjoying it. Pretty twisted.

I'm still laid up a bit from ankle surgery so welcome any suggestions :) Can also recommend I, Tonya, and Three Billboards for Redbox rentals.

Intercot withdrawals

intercot.com - Thu, 2018-04-05 23:59
For the first time ever, intercot is blocked on the computers at work for my new contract. I was going through severe Intercot withdrawals. I wanted to look over everyone's dining choices while I pined away about not being able to make my dining reservations. (my cellphone had died a horrible painful death). I toyed with the idea of changing my reservations to AKL, since I don't have to worry about all the people coming for the wedding any more. I had a burning desire to read trip reports. My new phone came in and I downloaded the My Disney Experience App. I thought about Texas211 as I paid cash for my doctor's appointment today. :P

Ahhh, so glad to be back at my house for a few days and catch up on the boards while I wait on hold with Disney dining listening to the music. I'm not even upset that I have to call and sit on hold since our party is too large to book online. (Talks a long drink of the Kool-Aid) :D

footwear on wet rides?

intercot.com - Thu, 2018-04-05 22:33
I'm considering taking some sort of water proof shoe just to slip on before wet rides. I'll be in runners most of the time because I really need a good solid shoe. Wondering if I should get a pair of crocs/dawgs. And if so - the regular "clog" style or a slip on sandal (don't know if Disney lets you ride in a slip on sandal). Any thoughts?
