wow a week went so fast:confused3 Very quickly dropping by to say that me and colin had the most fantastic week in the "world", pop century was wonderful and I can totally see why so many people love it, full of character and fun. So much to tell you all and will get started on the trip report as soon as poss. Crowd levels were sort of in the middle really, some days headliners had an hour wait, some days 15 minutes. All the ADRs were a hit, we never waited longer than 5 minutes for a table and both me and colin have aquired extra pounds for sure:cool1: Free dining saved us a fortune and we only left 2 counter service credits and 1 snack credit. We rode everything we wanted to, some twice, and had a great day at Downtown Disney too. We fitted in a round of crazy-golf which I had never done out there before, so much fun:goodvibes and we got pole position for the shuttle launch from the top floor of Pop which i can honestly say is the most amazing thing I have ever seen. We had never spent 7 days and nights straight together before but we didnt stop laughing, had a blast and he said it has been an incredible experience although he did nickname it the Claire boot camp:lmao:I totally got the trip I wanted to have with the man of my dreams and while we are both exhausted I am so so happy and still on my disney high:cloud9: Between us we have 700 photos but i will try and keep these to within ..maybe 300:rotfl:
Only downers were not getting to see fantasmic as the weather just wouldnt allow it and the horrendous bus lines at park closing for Pop. For example, coming out of Magic Kingdom there was so many people that they opened up 2 bus stops just for Pop and we still waited an hour!!!!! Anyway, the washing is done, my children are home and love their pressies and I managed to stay awake all day so hopefully jet lag wont kill me this time.
will sign off for now but as you can tell my trip report may be a long one, I just am bursting with so much to say. :goodvibes
hope all of you had a good week x

We are at the Pop from August 16th to 28th....we were in the 90's building which is the furthest in all the times....the good thing was that it wasn't too far from the car park....

When was the shuttle launch??

Can't wait to hear all the details :cool1:

When was the shuttle launch??

It was 11:59pm on the 28th so you just missed it:headache: I think the advantage of the 90s was it was a bit closer to the bus stops maybe? loved Pop though:)

thanks to all of you for your comments, I am going to get to the trippie at the weekend I promise;)
