I'M BACK!

Ladies and Gents, after some hints and begging by a few DIS'ers (you know who you are), I've decided to start my PTR early. Now, it's up to you guys to help me keep it going! This trip is a special one because it's my Graduation from college with my Bachelor's Degree present from my parents. They are paying for our room and B/F(now Fiance!) and I are paying for the Dining Plan. We're already Annual Passholders, so we don't need to worry about that!

Since I've done several TR's now, I won't bore you with all the little details about me. Let's get on to the info about the trip!

Who?: This will be my first ever trip to WDW out of the 20 something times I've been there that I'm going without my Mom, Dad, and Sis. It's just the Fiance and me! He's been 4 times now and he's starting to like it more and more.

http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u278/dislover/disney091076.jpg

When?: We are both in college, so the best time for us to go is over our Spring Break, so we'll be there March 14-19. We're leaving home the 13th, staying the night in Chatanooga, then getting to WDW the 14th. We're leaving WDW the 19th, staying the night in Chatanooga again, then getting home the 20th.

Where?: This is actually our first time staying at POP. I've stayed at the All Star Sports once a long time ago when I was competing in Nationals for tumbling. As most of you who know me, I have stayed at the Contemporary, GF, Poly, WL Villas, and OKW lots of times. While we understand that POP is not like any of those, we're just happy to be going and having somewhere to sleep!

As a lot of DIS'ers may know, the 180 day mark for making ADR's is beginning on October 27th. I'm sure both the online and phone reservation systems will be a ZOO. But, I have to hope for the best and keep my fingers crossed! Oh, I should also mention that we're doing the Dining Plan.

Here's where we want to eat though:
Breakfast: Kona Cafe

Everything else, we are going to do for lunch instead of dinner. Since March park hours are not being posted until the 27th also, we figured we can just plan our CS meals for dinner once the hours are up.

Lunch: The Wave, Hollywood Brown Derby, Le Cellier or Big River Grille, and Yak & Yeti.

B/F and I ate at Yak & Yeti back in June and LOVED it. I've been to Le Cellier before and LOVED it, so I know B/F will to. The others are all new.

Well, welcome aboard this PTR everyone and I hope you enjoy the ride....

Here's some things that have been keeping my interest the past few weeks:

~~As most of you girl DIS'er's may have already seen, Disney has come together with Dooney and Bourke! When I saw this pic, I had to comment: "I.must.have.this." :rotfl::

~~Also, some of you may also have seen this video. It shows a day at the MK from a very different viewpoint. I get goosebumps everytime I watch it!:

OMG, I saw that D&B bag and it is ADORABLE! I am not a Dooney and Bourke girl at all but I love that bag. Unfortunately I still don't think I'm willing to pay that kind of $$. I hear there is a wristlet though...haven't found pics yet!

I agree with all the people that say being at WDW without family for the first time is a little strange, but so much fun! With two people, it is much easier to make decisions and get from point A to point B. :rotfl2:

I am excited to hear about your opinion of the POP because we are thinking next time we go we will probably stay at a value to save some money.

Can't wait for all your plans!! :goodvibes:goodvibes:goodvibes

Tink.... you said something about park hours in your first post.

In March the past two years, MK has closed at 8pm with Wishes... unless in had EMHs. Spectro only ran 4 times a week at 7pm. AK 5, DHS 7 with only 2 days of Fantasmic!, Epcot Future world 7 World showcase 9. It has been the same the last two years. I will be hunting to find those hours before October 27th. The EMHs won't apply to us this time staying offsite. As you get later in March, the hours are usually extended an hour.. which might be true in you case since you will be there the 3rd week in March. If I find any info on the hours, i'll let you know! :goodvibes

YAYY!!! I'm here! I'm glad you got started again. And its not to far away! I think thats great that your parents booked the rooms for you for graduation! Thats heck of a present! :thumbsup2 Also, the rooms and stuff are smaller at POP, but everything is fairly new, the food court has yummy food, and with just you two- the room size will be perfect. I think you will like the resort. Just being in Disney is great enough! hehe

We were debating Spring Break- but my parents really want to have a family one- so were doing Jan. 2011.. which is soo far away. But its also to celebrate me graduation! hehe

Hey girl! It is awesome that they did that for us!

I know the POP is definately not the Villas we're used to, but it will get the job done for the quick trip we're taking the two of us.

Well..let me know if you do go for Spring Break! That'd be cool to run into each other!

We've stayed there twice including our honeymoon. It's just us, no kids, but we are just big kids :laughing:The rooms are small but that's ok since we don't really spend time in the room except for sleeping and showering. We really liked the computer pool in the 80s section because it was less noisy and less crowded. We've stayed in the 70s both times and it was a good location for us, not too far from the food court and bus stops and also not a long walk to the computer pool. We had a lot of fun walking around the resort and taking pictures with all the giant icons. It's a very colorful and playful resort and I love that about it.

We stayed there a few years ago (before dd came along) so it's kind of hard for me to remember a lot of the details. I do remember that we took some fun pictures with all of those big props/icons! It was fun pretending to be part of a big foozball table. :laughing: It can get pretty crowded at the main pool if you are going during a crowded time of year. I think we went in may a bit before Memorial Day and you could definitely tell when the families came in for their holiday vacations. We spent a lot of time at the parks that year so we basically went back to the hotel just to sleep (and swim towards the end of the vacation). The buses can get pretty crowded during EMH nights, but then again, I figure it's like that all over. You'll have fun on your vacation anyways!

We stayed at POP Century our first trip--we had 8 people spread over 2 rooms. It was "comfy cozy" :rotfl2:.

Really, I loved POP Century. I can't tell you about transportation there, as we never used DIsney transport (except one monorail ride). It was a comfortable quiet room and the mousekeeping staff was wonderful!

that's nice

I know you are used to staying at.. ummmm.. 'other' resorts:rolleyes: but I think you will like POP. If you have an ADR somewhere or want to be at RD you need to get to that bus stop early....Or get a cab (I don't think you are going to have a car right?)

There are so many picture opps here. We never even made it over to the 50's section for pictures. The resort is a lot busier than what you are used to. There is no slide at the pool. The food court is busy, but they have a huge selection. There is Petals pool bar where you can stop for a drink. Even at 10 at night the pool was busy. Check out that POP thread, there is a lot of great info on there! If you have any specific questions, I'll try to answer them for you!!!:idea:pirate:

We are definately going to walk around and look at everything. Thanks so much for helping me out Tim!

Hi Tinkgurl! I am de-lurking as I lurked my way through your last TR and enjoyed every minute of it! :thumbsup2 so, naturally I had to find my way here :) You have such a nice family and DBF and you make such a sweet couple. :goodvibes

Looking forward to more!

by the way, I know what you mean about crying everytime you leave - I always get teary-eyed too! and we have some pictures from our last couple of trips on our way out of the park on our last day of our DD's (5 and 22mos.) sitting side-by-side in the double stroller crying! :laughing:

Hi,

Followed over to your PTR from Memom's TR. We have stayed at POP twice, once in Feb 2006 and Dec 2008 and love it. There are a lot of families there due to pricing. We have stayed preferred area near Hippy Dippy Pool (flower) and regular near bowling pin pool. Both areas were very quite. I would suggest requesting a 4th floor room which are the quietest. If you can get preferred, I would also suggest that especially after a long day at the park. All rooms have 2 full size beds or 1 king bed and are plenty big for 2 people. We never had any issues with the buses, it is nice that POP has it's own and doesn't share with any other resort but they are usually the furtherest stop from the park gates. Refrigerators are not included in the rooms but if you would like one, there are several free swaps out there (see link in my signature ;)). The food court is great for breakfast :love: their mickey waffles which come with the kids meal. We never really used it for lunch or dinner. Their shopping area is nice too. There is a bar in the pool area near Hippy Dippy pool and laundry areas near all the pools. I have a lot of pics of Pop, here are a few:

Hey - You started while I was in Disney World! That will be memorable to me as we go through the waiting, the arrival, and the retelling of this trip. :)

You know I might have a picture or two of Pop somewhere. I'll look and see. ;)
We're staying there again in December, so if you want to see specific things, just ask, although I have probably already taken at least one picture of every inch of that property at one time or another! :laughing:

All the planning and looking forward to this trip should help you get through the long cold winter ahead a little bit easier. :thumbsup2

Hey! Glad you made it over. I have to tell you...your picture clue has got me stumped! :laughing:

Life update

Hey everyone! Hope the week is going well for you guys. I know I'm excited that tomorrow is Friday! Finally! Just thought I'd give everyone an update of what's going on in my life. I'd love to hear what's going in everyone else's lives as well.

This weekend: Saturday, I'm carving pumpkins with the little guy. He'll be doing more of pulling all the "guts" out. :laughing: I also always give him a pumpkin or two to paint on. Sunday, we're driving about an hour away from home to my Dad's cousin's house. My Dad's aunt and uncle from Oregon are in town, so we're going to see them. We haven't seen that side of the family since 2005 when my Great-Grandma passed away.

This upcoming week: Tuesday, it's our 180 day mark to make ADR's! I know I'll be up bright and early. I hope we're able to get everything we want! Wednesday, I'm doing a Ride Along with a cop for my Crime & Delinquency class. It goes from 9 p.m. until 3 a.m.! :eek: But, there's a chance I might not go the whole time. Just depends on how the night goes. Saturday, it's Halloween so B/F, Uncle, and I are taking the little guy trick or treating. He's going to be a Bears football player. His outfit is so cute! It comes with pads, helmet, and everything! Later that night, B/F and I are going to a Halloween/birthday party at B/F's cousin and her b/f's house.

I have many more from many different trips. These are just the first ones I came across as I was glancing through. I'll spread them out here and there along your wait, so just let me know when you are ready for more.

As for our weekend plans - today is the last day of fall break. I have to do some school work I was ignoring (since I was in Disney World!!!), and do some errands. Tomorrow, we will be doing Trunk or Treat at church. Today is Drew's birthday, so we'll take him out to lunch sometime this weekend, too. Jill and the girls will be here, so it will be a fun weekend.

Sounds like a fun week ahead for you. Post a picture of your little guy in the Bears outfit. That sounds so cute! My DD will be a little ladybug, so no where near as creative. But she's only 2, so she doesn't really care what she is right now. Good luck with the ADRs! I'm getting hungry just thinking about some of the Disney restaurants.

Aww--Have so much fun with your little guy this weekend and next week! :thumbsup2 I'm sure he'll be SO cute in his Bears outfit! And that's so good that you're getting to see that part of your family after you haven't in so long. What a fun week!! We're taking our youth kids to a camp in Tyler, TX to do a workcrew weekend. I worked there for 3 summers, and so it's like going back home. I'm really excited! :goodvibes


Now...about POP. We stayed there in 2006 and loved it! Even though the rooms are nothing fancy, they're nice. The food court is a lot bigger than the ones in Deluxe resorts since it doesn't have a TS restaurant. Everything we tried was good. Even though there were a lot of families with young kids, it wasn't loud at all. I don't know if you're planning on swimming, but the pool isn't really shaded at all--so take sunscreen! The gift shop is really cute, and I just loved all of the over-sized decorations all over! We'd definitely stay there again :thumbsup2

I will definately post a picture of him! I'm also planning on posting pics from our St.Louis trip back in July/August...and then when it gets closer to the end of the year, I'm going to post a "Look Back at 2009" and post pics from throughout the year! Hope that sounds like fun for you readers.

Aw, a ladybug will be cute! My little guy will be 3 in November. I can't believe it. He's so excited to be a football player like my B/F (he was really good in high school). He looks up to B/F so much.

If you get hungry just thinking about WDW restaurants...do NOT go look at some Dining TR's. Yeah..I've drooled over some! LOL

That's so cute that he looks up to your bf! Speaking of football, my DH is bringing my DD to a football party/dinner at his friend' house tomorrow (I have to work all weekend :sad1:) and I told him that she needs to wear her Pats jersey. We are both big football fans and i am not from the MA area, so we alternate her between the Pats jersey and her Redskins cheerleading dress. At least one of the teams is doing well.

omg - I always drool over the dining TRs! Especially when they post a ton of pictures. It always gets me excited though. We don't know when our next trip will be, DH is thinking next Sept, but I feel like that is sooooo far away! Have a good weekend at home!

Question...

Who here has stayed at POP before? Please give me any info.,tips, stories etc. that you might have. I'm clueless about the place! :flower3:

Some how I missed this question. But we just stayed at Pop in May. So I have a lot of things I can share. Since your are following my TR= you have seen some of my picks and things. My biggest tip would to be "To figure out what building or area you want to be in and request it" because we didn't request and we got a building the farthest from the main building- food court and stuff- and that was really annoying. I think this park is more spread out that ASMovies. We also like the Computer pool the best. The fruit bowls, chili cheese friends, and hot fudge brownie sundaes are awesome at the food court. But be aware- the brownie sundaes aren't on the dining plan- just the regular sundaes- we didn't know that and thankfully, the CM gave it to us anyways. Maybe you can ask ahead of time if you can just pay for a brownie on the side. idk. Hmm.. If I think of anything else, or if you have any questions- feel free to ask!!

that's nice

WHAT?! OK I am a terrible DIS friend for getting here so late!! I'm glad I didn't miss too much yet :)

Your week/weekend sounds pretty fun!! I cannot find any of my Pop pictures but it was a ton of fun. Food court was pretty good, gift shop was SO fun, and the music they play will have you singing along all day! The rooms aren't the best, epecially if you've stayed at a deluxe, but it is a fine place to sleep when you are tired from spending all day at the parks! I think you will really like it. If I couldn't stay at a deluxe again I would stay at Pop. I've only been to one mod (CSR) but I liked Pop better!

There are just so many cute little things!!! I feel like so many other gift shops have the same kind of stuff you see in the parks or else a few things that are unique to that resort. The Pop store just has so much unique little knick-knacky type stuff and the way everything is displayed just makes it fun to look around!

Can't believe we are both graduating soon and getting trips to WDW as gifts!! Congrats to us for having something AMAZING to celebrate while there!! (My dad said I can't celebrate though until I find a job, lol.)

Woo! So glad you've started a new PTR!!!! I'm definitely in. :yay: Any luck with your ADRs today?

I've stayed at Pop a few times. Most recently, Aaron and I stayed at Pop for a night in August. We requested a king room and got it. It was nice b/c it included a mini fridge. The only down side, it was also an accessible room and the bathroom creeped Aaron out. Here are some pics of he room:

We were in the 70's building, somewhere in the 300s. The location was GREAT, especially for being a standard view. We were really close to Classic Hall and we only had to pay $45 for the room! I think Pop is definitely the best of the value resorts. I've had a lot of fun there.

ADRS MADE!!

Alright, as everyone knows, today was the day that the ADR window went back to 180 days. It was the biggest fiasco ever. All the phone lines and on-line systems were jammed and down. I figured something like that would happen, so Dad offered to call/go on-line to make the reservations for me since I had class this morning. Yes, he was at work, but he is his own boss, so he just did paperwork while calling/trying on-line. He finally got through the phone around 12:30 p.m.

Since park hours for March were not posted until today, I went and looked at what the park hours were the same week in March last year. I based our ADR's on that. I told Dad if it can't be exactly the days I want, I'd be fine with it. But...we were lucky enough to get everything we wanted!

You guys might think I'm weird, but we decided to make our ADR's for lunch every day and then just eat CS dinners at the park we're at that night. That plan worked well since park hours weren't posted!

Now, I should let you know..we are doing the dining plan, which we love. I do have one question though. For my entree, could I order an appetizer/salad and have that count as my entree or no?

Here they are..If you have any recommendations on things to order, please let me know!:

Monday, 3/15: Hollywood Brown Derby at 11:30 a.m...This one uses 2 TS credits.

Tuesday, 3/16: Breakfast at Kona Cafe at 8:30 a.m....This one we're paying OOP since HBD took 2 credits. Then, Le Cellier at 2:05 p.m.

Wednesday, 3/17: Yak & Yeti at 1:00 p.m.

Thursday, 3/18: The Wave at 1:00 p.m.

that's nice

Since park hours for March were not posted until today, I went and looked at what the park hours were the same week in March last year. I based our ADR's on that. I told Dad if it can't be exactly the days I want, I'd be fine with it. But...we were lucky enough to get everything we wanted!

You guys might think I'm weird, but we decided to make our ADR's for lunch every day and then just eat CS dinners at the park we're at that night. That plan worked well since park hours weren't posted!

Now, I should let you know..we are doing the dining plan, which we love. I do have one question though. For my entree, could I order an appetizer/salad and have that count as my entree or no?

Here they are..If you have any recommendations on things to order, please let me know!:

Monday, 3/15: Hollywood Brown Derby at 11:30 a.m...This one uses 2 TS credits.

Tuesday, 3/16: Breakfast at Kona Cafe at 8:30 a.m....This one we're paying OOP since HBD took 2 credits. Then, Le Cellier at 2:05 p.m.

Wednesday, 3/17: Yak & Yeti at 1:00 p.m.

Thursday, 3/18: The Wave at 1:00 p.m.

Nice getting your Dad to do it!!! WTG!!!:thumbsup2:thumbsup2

Your ADRs look great!!! Nice idea doing TS for lunch. Then at night you could just eat on the go!!

It will be great being able to eat a CS whenever for dinner.

Haha, I know I know..I just think it'd be weird eating there without Mom, Dad, and Sis. I also think it would make me even more homesick for them. :laughing: I'm such a sap.

Yummy ADR's! I am a vegetarian and have definitely ordered things that were appetizers or things on the kid's menu as my entree as part of the DDP. You should be fine!

I love the coconut tofu dish at HBD!! And of course the Tonga Toast at Kona!

Yak&Yeti have really good lo mein type noodles and this awesome appetizer that is like fried green beans!!

That's GREAT! You got everything you wanted!! AWESOME!! I too, like your idea of doing lunches- gives you more flexibility in the evenings. But I think a few of the menus are little more limited. I know at Bomas they don't have the ribs for example. but I think you'll like it this way regardless :yay:

That was so nice of your dad!! What a great guy!! :goodvibes

I feel SO SO SO bad that I didn't even realize you had a ptr! I bet its been in your siggy this WHOLE time. How could I not notice? I hope you can forgive me! I'm here now!! :goodvibes

I read through the whole thing and am all caught up now!!

First of all, that's so cute that you're little guy is going to be a Bears football player!! I didn't realize you guys were Bears fans!! I went to the Broncos/Bears pre-season game and it was a good time, even though you beat us! :laughing: That's cute that you're a ref and your other guy is a football player too!! I briefly considered making Landon a football player, but realized his balance is not exactly great, so I don't think a helmet and pads would help! :rotfl: Maybe next year!

Also, its SO CUTE that your dad made your adr's for you. That just made me smile so much! How sweet of him! I am eager to hear your reviews of everything, since I have never tried any of those places!!

As for Pop...I absolutely LOVED it there!! Did you guys request a room with a queen bed? I think that would be better for you guys than 2 doubles! Vallie ended up getting one of the queen rooms there. I think I remember you over on her thread!

Are you guys booked for preferred or just normal? I actually didn't explore too much of the resort, since we had our car and didn't walk. I hear that no building is really a bad walk though and there is TONS of fun stuff to keep you occupied if you do have to take paths. We didn't have preferred, but if you remember, when we walked outside our door, we had a perfect view of the WDW sign. I thought that was pretty magical for a value resort view!

Plus, the lobby just sparkles and so does the Everything Pop! sign. I thought it was amazing!

Make sure you get the cheesefries for me! I am obsessed with them! They may even be the food I crave most out of all WDW!! They were SO good! I could go for some right now!!

Also, I second what someone else said about mousekeeping. They really are great! Every room by ours always had at least 3 towel animals inside. Ours even made a towel toothbrush holder! They were just so fabulous!!

:rotfl2: I've been waiting for you to make it over here. I wasn't going to say anything though because I know how busy people get.

That's cool you went to the Bears/Broncos game! Haha, yeah maybe next year Landon can be one!

Yep, Dad is so nice! Well I can't wait to tell you about them! I've been to Le Cellier and Yak & Yeti before, and Kona for dinner.

I can't wait to check out POP. We didn't request a building or anything, but we did ask for a room with a queen so hopefully that works out!

I will try the cheesefries just for you girl!

I hope we get some good mousekeepers. What did you do with your personal important stuff? Did you just leave it sitting out or put it away?

We're just going around our neighborhood then over to my house so my parents can see him. My house is always the last stop because we give him special goodies and he plays around the house for awhile. Plus, it will be nice to get warm!

Hmm..I guess if you could only do breakfast or dinner at Kona..I'd look at the menus and see what appealed to you more.

I can't believe your dad was able to get all of your ADR's that you wanted. Yay! It all sounds great. I will interested to hear about them, since I haven't been to a few of them.

It's exciting that you and your B/F are doing a trip together. You will be able to create some new traditions while doing some old ones as well.

I have been trying to watch the video that you posted earlier, but it keeps freezing up after 30 seconds or so. It was enough to get me hooked though and it was so cool! Do you mind if I post the link in my TR as well? I want quick access to it whenever I need a WDW pick me up. :goodvibes

ADRS MADE!!

You guys might think I'm weird, but we decided to make our ADR's for lunch every day and then just eat CS dinners at the park we're at that night. That plan worked well since park hours weren't posted!


Here they are..If you have any recommendations on things to order, please let me know!:

Monday, 3/15: Hollywood Brown Derby at 11:30 a.m...This one uses 2 TS credits.

Wednesday, 3/17: Yak & Yeti at 1:00 p.m.

Thursday, 3/18: The Wave at 1:00 p.m.

Define weird. :laughing:

I think lunch is a good idea, since you don't know the park hours. Hopefully they will be long, since it'll be spring break for many.

I don't have recommendations for what to eat, but it sure is fun planning along with you.

You may think I'm weird, but even though there is a 'slim to none' chance of a spring trip for me, I did get on SW yesterday and check flight prices. Annual passes are paid for you know, so there is just the little matter of:
flights,
rooms,
and food.
:upsidedow

March Park Hours

Finally, March park hours were posted the other day! So, I wrote them down and now have an idea for a plan for our days. Now, this is definately something new for me to do because we're used to being there for a longer time and just winging our days. This is what I have so far:

Sunday, 3/14:
MK is open 9 a.m. - 11 p.m., then evening EMH 11 p.m. - 2 a.m.
*We are arriving this day, so it works our perfect that the MK is open until 11 p.m. with evening EMH since this is the park we always go to first.

Monday, 3/15:
DHS is open 9 a.m. - 8 p.m., then evening EMH 8 p.m. - 11 p.m.
*We are eating at Hollywood Brown Derby at 11:30, so we'll probably sleep in a bit since we'll be tired from driving still.

Tuesday, 3/16:
Epcot's morning EMH 8 a.m. - 9 a.m., then FW is open 9 a.m. - 7 p.m. and WS is open 11 a.m. - 9 p.m..
*We are eating breakfast at Kona at 8:30 a.m., then we'll head to the TTC and ride the monorail over to Epcot. We're fine missing morning EMH's. Then, we're eating lunch at Le Cellier at 2:05.

Wednesday, 3/17:
AK is open 9 a.m. - 6 p.m., then evening EMH 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.
*We are eating at Yak and Yeti at 1:00.

Thursday, 3/18:
MK's morning EMH 8 a.m. - 9 a.m., then open 9 a.m. - 11 p.m.
*We are eating at The Wave at 1:00.

So, as you can see, the park hours/EMH days are pretty much the same as March from last year. Thank goodness, because our ADR's work perfect for each day!

Hmm..I guess if you could only do breakfast or dinner at Kona..I'd look at the menus and see what appealed to you more.

I will probably go back and forth every day until I have to make my adr's! Even then, I may switch it around after! :rotfl: Oh well...

It'll probably be just me, B/F, and the little guy. While my Sis loves him to death and loves being around him, she has a different love/relationship with him than me. With her, she's the one who will go see him and play with him. With me, I love him more than life itself, he's the apple of my eye, he is my own. My whole family sees that. He's like my son. He even looks a lot like me. For instance, me and him are the only ones (besides my grandpa who now has gray hair) that have blonde hair. I think he understands our relationship. He listens to me. He lets me do things to him that he won't let anyone else (like clean his ears, change his diaper, clip his nails, dress him, give him a bath)..stuff like that. Okay, I'm sorry I'm blabbing!

Haha, it's so hard to make a decision! I'm sure both breakfast/dinner are both great.

Aw..I'm sorry I made you get emotional. But that's so sweet of you to care that much. :)

It'll probably be just me, B/F, and the little guy. While my Sis loves him to death and loves being around him, she has a different love/relationship with him than me. With her, she's the one who will go see him and play with him. With me, I love him more than life itself, he's the apple of my eye, he is my own. My whole family sees that. He's like my son. He even looks a lot like me. For instance, me and him are the only ones (besides my grandpa who now has gray hair) that have blonde hair. I think he understands our relationship. He listens to me. He lets me do things to him that he won't let anyone else (like clean his ears, change his diaper, clip his nails, dress him, give him a bath)..stuff like that. Okay, I'm sorry I'm blabbing!

That's so sweet that you have such a special bond with him. He's really lucky to have you. I'm really glad that you have each other actually! :hug: I don't mind you blabbing about him. I know how easy it is to just go on and on and on about little guys. :lovestruc

Don't be sorry you made me emotional! I'm just a sap! I just think you guys are so cute!! Can't wait to follow on all those future trip reports with your own family! :goodvibes

And we know how much you missed your dessert last time, right??!! Go for it!!

LOL I might have to... Although I've never been to Ghirardelli either. I have to get something from here too!

So, as you can see, the park hours/EMH days are pretty much the same as March from last year. Thank goodness, because our ADR's work perfect for each day!

You had your ADRs planned perfectly!!!! WTG!!!!:cool1:

Haha, it's alright! You're here now! How's the little guy doin'? What is he going to be for Halloween?

I can't believe he was able to get them all too! I for sure thought at least Le Cellier would be a no-go.

It is definately exciting going just the two of us!

Aw, I'm sorry that the video keeps freezing! Gosh darn it! Of course you can post it in your TR!




We are still working on the Halloween costume. Todd wants him to be a rocker (like Billy Idol in the 80's rocker), but it is hard to find "leather pants" for a little kid. I really hope we can pull it off because I think it would be so funny. If not, we bought a Buzz Lightyear costume as a back up. :thumbsup2

Your scheduling looks great. It seems like they have good EMH when you are there. If you are skipping the EMH at Epcot, that is a good park to do it at since it is so much bigger than the other parks.

March Park Hours

Finally, March park hours were posted the other day! So, I wrote them down and now have an idea for a plan for our days. Now, this is definately something new for me to do because we're used to being there for a longer time and just winging our days. This is what I have so far:

Sunday, 3/14:
MK is open 9 a.m. - 11 p.m., then evening EMH 11 p.m. - 2 a.m.
*We are arriving this day, so it works our perfect that the MK is open until 11 p.m. with evening EMH since this is the park we always go to first.

Monday, 3/15:
DHS is open 9 a.m. - 8 p.m., then evening EMH 8 p.m. - 11 p.m.
*We are eating at Hollywood Brown Derby at 11:30, so we'll probably sleep in a bit since we'll be tired from driving still.

Tuesday, 3/16:
Epcot's morning EMH 8 a.m. - 9 a.m., then FW is open 9 a.m. - 7 p.m. and WS is open 11 a.m. - 9 p.m..
*We are eating breakfast at Kona at 8:30 a.m., then we'll head to the TTC and ride the monorail over to Epcot. We're fine missing morning EMH's. Then, we're eating lunch at Le Cellier at 2:05.

Wednesday, 3/17:
AK is open 9 a.m. - 6 p.m., then evening EMH 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.
*We are eating at Yak and Yeti at 1:00.

Thursday, 3/18:
MK's morning EMH 8 a.m. - 9 a.m., then open 9 a.m. - 11 p.m.
*We are eating at The Wave at 1:00.

So, as you can see, the park hours/EMH days are pretty much the same as March from last year. Thank goodness, because our ADR's work perfect for each day!

WOW.. you couldn't have asked for a better match up! Good going!

And I'm sure you are what has gotten him through too. You are both so blessed to have each other. My heart goes out to your whole family for his mother's death, but the bond you two have create a beautiful aspect to the story. :hug: It really brings a tear to my every time. (I'm a sap!)

Haha yes it is! I called him last night and I said "Guesssss What?!" He goes, "What?!" and I said "I come home tomorrow and the day after that is Trick or Treating!" and he goes, "Yayyyyy! Trick or treat..." then he paused and goes "smell my feet" and I said with him, "give me something good to eat!" We were both laughing.

I got thru around the same time as your dad for ADR's. It was noon and then waited on hold for 20 min. But we got what we wanted. The hours didn't work out as well for us as they did for you! But thats ok. Good for you... that is awesome!

Finally got my pics uploaded! And...I upgraded to pro on my account! :)

This is his 'smile for the camera' face. He's yelling "Cheeeeese!":

http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u278/dislover/fall09152.jpg

Then my Dad stopped by..They are getting ready to tackle each other..and lining up like the football players. The little guy yells out "Red 49...ready..set..hit!":

http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u278/dislover/fall09158.jpg

Getting ready for trick-or-treating last night:

Ready to go!:

http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u278/dislover/fall09166.jpg

I took him out and Mom drove us to our stops so we didn't walk very much. Here we are at our very first stop...his daycare lady's house:

http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u278/dislover/fall09169.jpg

After a few stops, he was ready to come to my house. So, we sat out on the front steps and handed out candy. He had more fun doing this than trick-or-treating himself. Every time kids would come up he'd say, "Hi trick-or-treaters!" Mom took this pic from the front window:

http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u278/dislover/fall09170.jpg

He had a blast..I hope everyone else's trick-or-treating went well too! We had great weather!

He is something else that's for sure. We honestly don't know what we'd do without him. When his mom (my Aunt) passed away last year, we just sort of all became his parents. Yes, he still has his dad (my Uncle) but we've all pitched in to help him.

Yes, I finally upgraded!

The little guy is my cousin. His mom (my Aunt) passed away last year, so we've all come together to help my Uncle. He's more like my son now. :laughing: Even Mom and Grandma joke about it too. Grandma has him during the week on the days he doesn't go to daycare. Then, I come home every weekend and take over. During the summer, he was with me practically every day. He'll be 3 in a few weeks already!

He just called me this morning to tell me he was going potty on his Elmo potty! He knew I'd be excited and made Grandma call me. :laughing:

I'm sorry for the confusion! I do have to admit..I'm bad...:laughing:If I have him somewhere and people ask if he's mine, I say yes. I know I don't look my age, so when some people ask me, they have a look of disgust on their face. So I say yes. :rotfl2: Mom was with me one time and she had to try her hardest not to laugh.

On another note, he has called me 'mommy' before. He still knows his real mommy, we show him pics of her all the time. I've just taken on her role and he sees that. We have a connection that he doesn't have with my sister or anyone else.

It was so cute! I wish I would've taken a picture of them!

Oooh my gosh that is so cute! Aw, you thought of me?! Gotta love John Deere. :) I think Landon would love it.

Of course I thought of you!! I remember our little conversation about that!! :goodvibes My mom gets so excited whenever she hears "Big Green Tractor" :laughing: Its funny. I don't know if she got it for him or not, she thinks I need to be surprised too!

Oh you're right, I CAN'T wait until Christmas Break! When I told him yesterday that I had to go back to school he goes, "You no go to Wisconsin, you stay here all night." Talk about making me cry! :sad1:

Awww...I'm sure that just broke your heart! What a sweet little guy. :goodvibes It's going to be so neat to be a part of him growing up. He obviously loves you very, very much!

Well..you probably going to kinda be the one who really opens Landon's presents on his birthday..at least, I know I've always helped my little guy with his.

Need some ideas/recipies for some new things to eat? I found this neat Disney Family Food website:

http://family.go.com/food/#

Check it out!

And since we're on the topic of food...let's talk about my ADR's! Over the next few days, I'll be posting what I'm thinking about ordering for each day of our trip.

Day 1: For our first day (Sunday), we'll be getting there in the afternoon, so we'll just be eating dinner at a CS place. Since we'll be at the MK, we'll either be at Cosmic Ray's or Pinnochio's.

If Cosmic Ray's: I am thinking about trying the Turkey Bacon Wrap and get strawberry yogurt for dessert

If Pinnochio's: I will get my usual, the Mediterranean Salad and get strawberry shortcake for dessert

Anyone else get anything different at either of these places?

that's nice

I just found out I'm taking him to get the H1N1 mist vaccine on Friday when I get home. I'm nervous for him, haha.

Awww. He'll do fine. The mist vaccine is not as painful as the shots, I feel like. I held my DD in my lap and she barely flinched when they gave it to her.

Are you taking your little man to Disney soon? He will love it! And you will love every single moment of it even more than usual, just watching his reactions.

Great link by the way. I already get emails from that Disney family site, but haven't gotten a chance to actually read through all the recipes. I'm always looking for something new to cook (and easy since I'm cooking-challenged).

Cosmic Rays is one of our favorites. I usually get the chicken, mashed potatoes, and greenbean meal. I want to try a wrap or something else next time. I think Pinnochios is so cute. I have never ate in there, but have walked through it.

Okay thanks! I'm glad to know your DD did alright with it.

We are taking him to WDW soon! In June! It's going to be a big group: Mom, Dad, Sis, Me, B/F, little guy, Uncle (his dad), little guy's step-brother, and Grandma and Grandpa. Grandma and Grandpa are so excited about going back. We went for a Christmas trip all together back in 2001 with my other Grandparents too and we all had a blast. That was obviously before the little guy, so it's been awhile since they've been back.

I love finding new things to cook! And the pictures look so yummy!

My mom is pretty funny!! I know I will probably be opening them...the anticipation is just killing me and I want to know!! :rotfl: Landon doesn't even know what anticipation means yet!! I guess someone's gotta have it!!

Oh and thanks for that website!! It looks great! I'm going to check it out now!!

I got the rotisserie chicken too at Cosmic Ray's!! So did my mom and she loved it. She said she wants to go back just for that!! I really enjoyed it a lot too, though I did think the mashed potatoes were kind of runny! It was all very filling though!

Day 2:

We will wake up and head over to the Everything Pop food court for breakfast. I tried looking up the menu for it, but the only show the lunch/dinner menu. Can anyone clue me in on what's there for breakfast?

Then, we're heading to DHS for the day. Our ADR for the day is the Hollywood Brown Derby at 11:30 a.m.

From looking at the menu, I think I'm going to order the Agnolotti Pasta with Rock Shrimp - Made with artichoke hearts, and fried peppers tossed in extra virgin olive oil and shaved garlic. And for dessert, I'll have the Banana White Chocolate Toffee Tower - Served on a cocoa almond cookie and Bananas "Foster." Yummmmm! :lovestruc

For dinner, our CS will probably be somewhere at DHS. We like either the Backlot Express or Pizza Planet.

If at the BE, I think I'll order either the Grilled Chicken Salad - Mixed greens, carrots, cabbage, tomato, and roasted soy, tossed with Zinfandel's vinaigrette or the Grilled Vegetable Sandwich - Toasted roll, mushrooms, red peppers, zucchini, tomato, watercress, and cheese,which my Sis always gets there.

If at PP, I think I'll order either the Toy Story Salad - Kalamata olives, pepperoncini, feta cheese, onions, and tomatoes topped with Balsamic vinaigrette or the Individual Cheese Pizza or maybe...Buzz's Meal Deal - Individual cheese pizza served with a garden salad and get a little of both! :laughing:

Whatever you want, you can pretty much get at Pop for breakfast - eggs, omelet, pancakes, waffles, croissants, cereal.

You know Jill loves her Pizza Planet!

Brown Derby is one we haven't been to yet, but it is getting higher and higher on our list as we knock them all out one by one. :) I know CP and LL and wigd and many others are big fans. :)

I'm so excited for cake pics too!! I think its going to be huge. Its a small cake meant for serving 2 people but I'm going to let him at the whole thing! I don't think he'll finish of course, but I think it'll be huge!

I just found so many things I want to try on that website!! One of the appetizers I found was fried ravoli that you dip in marinara for an appetizer!! It sounds so good to me! :rotfl:

You HAVE to go to Cosmic Ray's. Then you can see my bff, Sonny Eclipse. He'll perform some music for you!! Okay, so he's not really my bff...I didn't even see him when I was there! But I found out about him after and now I'm his friend on facebook...true story. :laughing:

Day 2:

We will wake up and head over to the Everything Pop food court for breakfast. I tried looking up the menu for it, but the only show the lunch/dinner menu. Can anyone clue me in on what's there for breakfast?


When I went there for breakfast, I didn't see any Mickey waffles. Just to warn you...they had special Pop Century waffles that just had their logo in the center!! But I think they have most normal breakfast food and they can make any omelettes or anything to order and its all pretty good!! When you go, you will see that they have like 2 or 3 different stations and they all have different stuff during the meals. For breakfast, one is the stuff like pancakes and waffles, and then another is eggs and omelettes and stuff. I'm not sure what the 3rd.

Oh and while I'm talking about it...during dinner, one of those areas is American food, such as hamburgers (and cheese fries :love:), another is pasta dishes, and the 3rd is asian dishes.

Of course...if you ask me...I just think you should get the cheese fries for every meal! :love: They don't really serve them at breakfast, but I think they should! (Guess what I'm craving right now? :rotfl:)

I can't wait to hear your review of Hollywood Brown Derby!! As for Pizza Planet, I would definitely go for Buzz's deal so you can get a little of both!! ;)

that's nice
11-04-2009, 02:18 PM
I agree with the PPs that you can get basically get anything you want for breakfast at POP. The earlier you go, the less busy it will be. If your room is close, you can get covers for your breakfast and just eat at the room.

I will second the others- the chicken at Cosmic Rays is really good! I've eaten this the last 2 trips and wasn't disappointed either time. It was very moist and the sides are good too!popcorn::

Do you ever watch Friends? There is an episode for Rachel's daughters birthday and she orders a cake and it ends up being shaped inappropriately and she says "If I wanted this cake to be a disaster, I would've baked it myself!" That's totally me. I can bake an edible, even rather tasty cake but its never that pretty!! I would love to see some cake pics of yours!! :goodvibes

I can't wait to try fried ravoli...yum!! I already love normal ravoli and like 98% of things are better fried, so it sounds promising! :rotfl:

I can't wait to try fried ravoli...yum!! I already love normal ravoli and like 98% of things are better fried, so it sounds promising! :rotfl:

Sonny totally has a facebook! You should find him so you can be cool like me!! :rotfl: We sat in the worst place ever there...it was lame. I'll have to go back and try the spots you recommend!

Of course I watch Friends! OMG that episode makes me laugh!

Of course things are better fried..so great for our health! :thumbsup2 LOL

Haha, I still have to get a facebook first..How the heck does he have one?!

Day 3: We are beginning the day with breakfast at Kona Cafe at 8:30 a.m. Can anyone tell me what time we should be at the bus stop by to have enough time to get to the MK then the monorail to the Poly?

Can you guess what I'll be ordering? Everyone say it with me..TONGA TOAST! TONGA TOAST! TONGA TOAST! Tonga Toast - Banana-stuffed sourdough bread, rolled in cinnamon sugar with your choice of ham, bacon or sausage..I'll be choosing the sausage..YUM!

Then we're heading over to Epcot for the day. We'll be eating at Le Cellier at 2:05 p.m. I'll be ordering the Le Cellier Mushroom Filet Mignon - Served wild mushroom risotto and white truffle-herb butter sauce..I had this last time we ate there and it was GOOD! For dessert, I'll have the Maple Creme Brulee - Maple creme brulee.

For dinner, we'll still be at Epcot, but I'm not sure exactly where we'll be eating. I know Sunshine Seasons is one of our choices, but we might look around at the different CS places around WS. Any suggestions? I love sushi so does the CS in Japan serve that?

Yummm. Tonga Toast! We never got a chance to try that on our last trip so we have that on our list for next time. It always looks so yummy!

Sunshine seasons is good, which i know you love. We ate at the Yakitori House in Japan (I think that's the CS there0 and thought it was pretty good. We were craving asian food/noodles/rice a couple of days into our trip so we ate there. I think they do have sushi - very limited though. I think you can get california rolls or spicy tuna rolls. I know we ordered teriyaki chicken (with rice and veggies), some udon noodles (a soup based noodle dish) and those were okay.

For dessert, there are so many options in the WS and the french patisserie is always delicious! Sigh, drooling now......

Hi TG!

Day 3 looks super tasty, too!

Never have Tonga, but it sure looks good! I make it at home occasionally, and it is very good! I'd go with sausage too. I've heard others say that the savory needs to balance out the sweet.

I"m not a big steaky kind of gal, but add me some shrooms- gotta love that!

Can't remember who mentioned tiramisu, but that has GOT to be my hands down fave for dessert. Will be adding that to my snack list right now!! It even beats out brulee.

I think you're right, you probably won't need a lot after 2 meals like that. Go for a snacky type thing for dinner. Crepes in France oughta just about do you right.

that's nice

We're having lunch at The Wave at 1:00 p.m. I'll be having either the Italian Chef Salad - Mixed greens tossed with red wine vinaigrette served with prosciutto, cappicola, provolone, salami, and shaved parmesan or the Mediterranean Tuna Salad - Herb-crusted seared ahi tuna with green beans, potatoes, roasted red peppers, and olive toast. And for dessert I'll be having the Creamy Indulgence - Cheesecake with raspberry coulis, Coconut panna cotta with passion fruit drizzle. YUM!

For dinner, we'll be eating at either Pinnochio's/Cosmic Ray's (depending on where we eat our first night) OR hop on the monorail over to Capt.Cook's at the Poly...I already mentioned what I'd eat at Pinnochio's/Cosmic Ray's, but if we eat at Capt.Cook's, I'll be having the sushi and a dole whip! :)

Hi! That is so cool that we're both going to be at POP at the same time!

The little guy is doing great. Friday night I took him to get his H1N1 mist vaccine and he did great! Didn't even flinch. The only part he hated about being at this building was the elevator. He says to me in the car on the way home, "I no like that elebator. It made me feel scared." And I said to him, "I know buddy, me too!" Haha, he's definately related to me since we both hate them! :laughing:

I was thinking of using a snack credit at Starring rolls. Do they serve semi-good coffee? That is the only thing I'll be missing--I might have to take some Dunkin Donuts coffee with me to the resort. . .

I can't wait to hear about the Wave! I've booked reservations for there so many times and then always cancel because my plans end up changing. I am so excited for you though because all the reviews look delish!

Do you know which nights have Fantasmic? I can't seem to find the answer.

Glad to hear he wasn't afraid to get the H1N1 vaccine.

We havn't gotten ours yet, so far they have only given it to the very young, health care workers, sick people and pregnant ladies.

I heard we have run out here....:eek:....I hope none of us gets sick in the meantime.

I was never a coffee drinker. But sometime in the past couple of years I became one. Now I have to have a cup every day.

Aw, too bad you haven't made it there yet! I'd love to hear anyone's experience with it! But, I will share my review of course!

Sorry, I don't know when Fantasmic is during our trip. But if I ever find out, I will let you know!

Haha, I have a lot of favorite meals at WDW too.

Yep, I've had the Zebra domes before! YUM! If they have those at The Mara, I'll have to have them.


The Mara does have Zebra Domes! They can either be a snack credit or a dessert!! I loved them so much!

Yes. And its all huge. We had cinnamon rolls from there for breakfast. They also have some of the most massive cupcakes known to man, if you were interested in knowing that. I want to try the Butterfinger one.

I loved your Halloween carving pics. I love carving pumpkins. i love the smell and the pumpkin seeds. Thanks for sharing.

Day 1:
At Pinnochio- I do believe that I had the Chicken breast nuggets and fries.. the nuggets were really good. And DH had the chocolate cake- which was good also.

Day 2:
Toy Story Pizza Planet- Have you ate here a lot? I honestly, didn't care for there food at all. I can't remember the name of my salad- but I had the one with melon in it. I just felt there wasn't much of it. but the rice crispy treat is yummy. And DH had the pizza- which we thought was mediocre.

Day 3:
Reading about your Tonga Toast, and Mushroom Filet Mignon is practically making me drool. Those are for suress for next time.

New Game!

-As some of you may remember from my last PTR, I played a "game" called 'Attraction of the Day'. I've decided to try something new for this PTR. I have to admit, I got alot of the idea from All7OfUs and wdwgirl03.

-What I'm going to do is: each day I'll give a clue about one of my Top 10 attractions for each park. But first, I'm going to give clues about my Top 10 highlights/memories of our June trip. If you have to, go ahead and cheat by trying to find it in my '09 TR. :)

-I'll give you guys 12-24 hours to guess and then I'll give the answer.

-I'll keep track of who gets their answers right and at the end of the entire game, the winning person will get to give me a photo assignment of something they want to see when I go in March. Unless you guys can think of a better reward. :laughing:

First clue:

I was an instigator at this rowdy 'Happily Ever After' feast with Big Bertha.

How 'bout a free trip. Just one request- my own room, WITH the DxDP! :lmao:

I'm flattered that you are taking the game idea and running with it. Seriously, how much fun is that?!

OK, need to do some "research", and will make my guess sometime today...

that's nice
