Trip Specifics:
May 31-June 7
Deluxe Dining Plan
May 31-June 1--POP Century
June 1-6--Coronado Springs
June 6-7--Quality Suites Lake Buena Vista

And here we are:

POP! Goes the Day!
 
After traveling 8 hours, we were so happy to get to POP Century that day. We got there to find that the barricades for the bridge from POP to AoA had been dropped!

creativeamanda...as everyone else, I really enjoyed the pictures.

One question: everything looks so deserted! These are from June? Are the crowds way down this year?
