I've already taken both coures back in August 2007. They are worth it. You get to learn some pretty cool things.

Unfortunately I won't be arriving at WES in time to take a Monday course, but will be taking a course on Friday.
If you could only take one course....would you recommend taking Admin 1, or skipping to Admin 2?

The Admin 2 course builds on what was covered in Admin 1. While Admin 1 might seem like a basic, introductory course it does provide a foundation for Admin 2. Besides the certificates for both look really good on my wall.

Top 40 ain't exactly what I call quality entertainment, but hey... it's free.
Maybe I'll skip it again and stay in my comfortable chair.

remember, Darth, the closed circuit tvs are there to keep up with what happens on stage, but also the deserts are outside the concert room.

If memory serves... outdoor seating, near the food buffet, near the bar, near the bathroom, near the cigar rolling dude, near the CC TVs, with a view of Universal Studios. Yeah, life was good!

Just got approval and registered! I did this yesterday and the exchange certification exam was there.

Anyone got any hints or feedback from previous WES goings? It will be my first time.

Default Orlando WorldCenter update

I just called Marriott, I was able to change from the Renaissance Orlando Resort to the Orlando World Center. All though I did not get the "WES" discount. I will not be renting a car so I will be breaking even or a little less considering parking fees and gas with the standard rate.

Our agent here called every single place and nothing was available last Friday .. at the moment I'm at the Renaissance Orlando Resort so I hope rooms come up .. I'm calling today to see if they will provide a shuttle as it is only noted for the Doubletree, Hilton, Beuna Vista. I do not want to rent a car.
