PRICE FIXE - FINE DINING!  Rosen Shingle Creek is offering Smart Marriages attendees $25 per person price fixe, 3-course menus at their two fine-dining restaurants: A Land Remembered (steak house) and Calla Bella (upscale Italian).  This was a huge hit last year and I encourage you to make reservations early. Amazing food and wonderful ambiance.  Call the hotel general number, 407-996-9939 and ask for the restaurant(s) or the concierge to make reservations.  The Bill Doherty *Becoming Better Husbands* banquet is Friday night, hope you're joining us for that.  But the rest of the week is wide open.  On Thurs, Sat & Sun you'll need early reservations so you can make it to the evening keynotes.  Thurs the opening keynote with Gary Chapman begins at 6:30pm!  Sat (John Gray/Mars & Venus) and Sun (Marriage Comedy Club) both begin at 7:30pm.  See attached pdf.  

Cafe Osceola Buffet Discounts - Smart Marriages attendees also receive a 25% discount on Cafe Osceloa's breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffets. So many choices - everything you could imagine and all you can eat. No reservations needed.  Just show your conference badge to get the discount.

(Here's a Golf update from a 2009 attendee:
My husband came with me to the 2009 Orlando Conference and played golf every day. When we arrived, he signed up for tee times every day and ended up connecting with three or four spouses of Smart Marriage attendees and played with them all four days. As you recall, it rained a great deal.  The golf course was really quite good, but play was (on some days) limited because of the water.  However, he wants to come again this year and wants to play again - so, please announce to the list.  Mick is a USGA ca member and keeps his handicap card up for amateur tournaments, so he's pretty critical of courses...and he did like this one. One other thing you might not know...every day, they only charged him like $15 or even let him play free because they felt bad about the rain.  It was a great bonus! -Kelly Roberts)  

Game Arcade -
great games for only 50¢ a game on lower level. 

In spite of this being a fancy resort, there is an onsite guest laundry room next to the game arcade. Laundry: $3.25 a load and $1.75 for a 45 min dryer cycle. Detergent for sale in vending machines.

There's a Publix supermarket/grocery store across the street at end of the resort driveway (a mile long driveway!)
That same shopping area has take-out Chinese (East Palace 407-226-6757) and Pizza/Deli (NYPD 407-992-8990) restaurants that deliver to the hotel.

Taxis: Star taxies are always at the ready just outside the front door - convenient.  Or, call a Yellow cab for a predictibly lower price. Example I was quoted $25 to the Outlet Mall by Star and $15 by Yellow cab. Be sure to ask.
