That's excatly what I got. It's a wash if you are not going to stay at the Renaissance and not renting a car.
But then again I am staying from the 11th-16th.

I couldn't get a room at the Marriot. I'm staying at the Hilton, located in the WALT DISNEY WORLD Resort from May 9th to the 16th. This is my first time going so I hope this is a good place. Anyone else staying here?

I'm awaiting word back from me Blackberry rep if they will extend the shuttle, as I don't want to rent a car. it's a $500 difference so I put the bug in my cost centers ear if it's that big a deal vs. having to rent a car.

I've stayed at that Hilton and it's nice, close to downtown Disney

Does anyone know how the tracks agenda works? Do we have to sign up for a track during registration when we get there?

you are not shoe horned into a track. You just can use the tracks to help you find the sessions you want hear topics on. I spent a good portion of Monday evening going through the session summaries to see wat I wanted to attend. I went through it once marking all that interested me and then a second time to rule out the ones that conflicted with each other. Some of the sessions fill up quickly, so you need to be quick to the room sometimes. Last year they also, re-ran a few of the more popular sessions.

Based on being a WES virgin last year - I'd note to take some timeout to figure out your sessions in advance - sitting round the pool with a cold one worked well for me... I found that there were 3/4 "must attend sessions" and about 10 "interested sessions" some of which overlapped so I had to re-prioritise

Also watch for last minute room switches as they tend to adjust the room sizes based on demand, and yes last year re-runs happened too.

It's gonna be a blast...

Thanks for the tip. I try not to make any important decisions without a cold one... around a pool is even better.

so ... does anyone have a top 10 or top 5 things to do at WES? Seriously.

This is my first WES; my company has been there for several years with a booth / kiosk, whatever you want to call it, as a sponsor ... and lucky me, I don't need to spend all my time manning the kiosk. I get to go to sessions

Get a room at the Nickeloadan Hilton Hotel. Its right across the street and they have a *****en Sponge Bob waterpark. Room rates run from $99 and on up. It's a farily new hotel and not bad for a good laugh

I'm sure I owe you at least one drink, that that should be in the top 10

It looks like my approval came in, the flights are booked and (thanks RIM!) a spot at the marriott has been reserved for me.

For those of you trying to get rooms still at the Mazza, I guess RIM block book big bunches of rooms and then split them out to carriers for them and their guests. It might be worth trying your carrier rep if you are a big account for them. OTOH they might have used up their allocation already...

Bring it on - are we going to do to the monday night get together like we did last year? I only made it for 30 minutes or so as I had a clash but it could be a fun way to get to know people...

as to hdawg - man you just need to make sure you scoop up all the invites to the cariers 'private' parties, I'm sure that can't be too hard for a man of your undoubted Blackberryness. That will cetainly fill up a few slots of the "top 15" list of things...
