Love the pictures for Art of Disney. So many interesting things to look at in there.

We never made it over to PORS but I would love to catch that show. It sounds like a blast.

Looking forward to BLT!

I swear I haven't fallen off the planet, just working a bunch this weekend (hopefully to finance a future WDW trip )

Bob was a lot of fun. Neither one of us had a real camera with us. I took a couple pics with my phone and I'll post them after I E-mail them to myself. People were going crazy for Bob! Such a great entertainer! Our server came over nd took out drink order and we waited. Then he came back, liked at us and realized we had no drinks, so he took our order again; and we waited - again. I was contemplating an appetizer but figured I wouldn't get it before it was time to go.

On the way back to POFQ we walked over the bridge and strolled past the mansions. I remember seeing that resort in the Disney trip planning brochure many years ago; back when it was Dixie Landings. Have I mentioned that already? I can't remember.

Anywho - when I get home tonight I might fix up a few pics to post. Or I might crash in bed. It's a toss up right now. to all those that just arrived!

I think you would love him and I think Henry would be entertained at least for a set or two. It's so much group singing and clamping and dancing. How could he NOT like that?

It is a great resort. I read Bob's bio and I noticed he's been there forever. I actually emailed him to tell him how much I liked his show and he emailed me back. I think its so cool that he responds to every email. Cool guy!

I know I couldn't drink three and still walk well. I got buzzed from even one.....3 would be pushing in. I like your plan - you drink one and DH drinks one. Make sure you give me a good toast.

Thanks Tracy. I checked it out a couple days ago and think this TR is so creative. I love it!!!!!! Plus the pictures are so creative that I am thinking of copying the idea.

Since my bags were checked and I my hands were free I decided that was a good time to get it. Because I was always lugging around so much stuff I didn't want one more thing to carry to the airport. It worked out perfectly.

We saw Piano Bob a couple of years ago for a little bit...you are right, he does put on a good show.
I love the picture of Mickey and the fireman, especially since I am supposed to be a "volunteer firefighter", only by proxy for being in a fire company band. I love the chairs at the beach. How I would love that one.

Bob was a hoot. I can't wait to see him again - such fun!

OOOH can't wait for the Contemporary!!!
No worries ....you are here now so Sometimes I miss TRs for days. I can skim right by them and then go, "doh".

I love that Art of Disney store. If only I had the money to indulge all my art desires. How great would that be?

BLT is right around the bend.

That seems to be the #1 picture from all us crazy Dis'ers. It's just so perfect. It combines all the right components of what I consider relaxation.

Bob was a hoot! If you get a chance to see him on your upcoming trip, go for it! I'm not a big audience participation person either, but there was a great group there and it was fun....heck its Disney so who cares if you act like a fool.

BLT coming soon.

That's right. I remember now that you were thinking about getting food but it took 10 or more minutes just to get our drinks. They were good though. Yum! I think we both ate rice cakes when we got back to the room. Booorrrrrinnnnggggg! But that's all we had.

Just post when you can. I have been a little slow with the TR this weekend because I have been editing soccer pictures. I really want to keep posting them to my photobucket account so I can share them with the rest of the team.

There were a couple times I thought he was going to tip the whole thing over. It was pretty funny to watch the big ol' upright piano swinging back and forth. My mom used to have an old upright and that bad boy was heavy. Maybe Bob's is the striped down version.

Great update, Mary Ellen! The Art of Disney always has such cool stuff in there. That picture of Mickey and Minnie looking at the castle would look great in the kids' bathroom.

Bob Jackson sounds fabulous! I bet it was a wonderful way to end the night listening to him perform!

I love the Art of Disney - so totally cool. We also visited the one in Epcot at the end of the trip. I plan to stop there and REALLY look around next trip. So many awesome things!

Bob was great. I highly recommend his show for a fun time!

Bebopping over to BLT.......part 1

I am sure this will part 1 of Bebopping over to BLT. When I looked through all my photos I can already tell I am going to need several posts for this update.

So with day 1 safely tucked under our belts, it is now time for Day ......



I hope Jen doesn't hate me for posting this picture. She hadn't been up very long when I took it so she was being a good sport by letting me take her Day 2 picture. I took quite a few pictures of the room. I actually forgot how many I took, but it was a decent amount.

So I was smart, for once, and I decided to prepare the coffee the night before. I was up around 6:30am and I really didn't want to wake Jen. Because I normally get up at 5am, it can be difficult for me to sleep past 6:30am when I am on vacation. It takes me several days to "learn" to sleep later. By the end of my week at the OBX I was actually sleeping to almost 8am. That is REALLY late for me.

I tried not to make any noise when I got up. I really didn't want to wake Jen, so I silently sipped my coffee. In fact, I don't really remember drinking my coffee so I must have guzzled it. No matter - it was yummy and it helped get the cobwebs out of my brain.

I dressed in my running clothes and silently slipped out the front door, just as the sun was coming up. I had just run out to the main path when I got a text message that read, "Are you up yet?". I texted back, "Yes. Out running". It was one of my friends and within seconds my phone was ringing. I slowed to a walk and answered the phone. My friend was having trouble making a difficult decision and she called me for some support. She knew I was in Disney, so we chatted a bit about that. We actually chatted for awhile since I ended up walking all the way down to the bayou section of POR where I found myself at one of the quiet pools. I stopped there to sit for awhile. When we finished our conversation, I hightailed it back to POFQ. I was thinking about running further, but I was a sweaty mess by the time I got back to FQ, so I decided a short run would do just fine.

When I got back to the room Jen was still sleeping. I showered and changed and when I emerged from the BR Jen was just starting to stir. We packed up the room and headed over to luggage services to check our bags.

It was a little bitter sweet leaving the FQ. I really, really love that place. There aren't any resorts I don't like, but PO will always hold a special place in my heart. In some ways I think it will always be my #1! Now that I belong to DVC, I know my time there is limited, but I am definitely going to consider it for future trips. Say September 11', when I may go back with the soccer moms. We are thinking a combo DVC/resort stay. I think I am going to pick POR or FQ as our resort. It's the perfect little fantasy land for me.

I didn't take pictures of the actual room because I had my long lens on, but I did take pictures of some of the detailing in the room like this picture.......



The detailing where the curtain pull is located....



The lamps......



The bed spread.....







The shower curtain.....



The bathroom floor.....



Even that chair seat cushions........



Oh.....and in case you were wondering exactly what the weather was like that day......





I feel fairly certain that 95 degree temps where I live would not produce ozone in the 'good' range.

On our way over to transfer luggage I got a few more scenery pictures.....















Once our luggage (or should I say Sherpa bags) was safely checked for transfer we headed over to get some delicious bites of yumminess......

Oh Yeah....what is POFQ best known for.......



Why, of course, beignets. Having never tried a beignet before I was surprised at the enormous amount of powdered sugar that covered that fried dough ball. They were pretty yummy, although not exactly the healthiest of fares. Jen laughed at the mess I made. I had powdered sugar everywhere. It was probably straight down to my underwear. Cleaning up after myself proved to be a chore. We couldn't take too many pictures of the powdered sugar + dough event or we probably would have coated our cameras with it.

Once we properly disposed of our powdered sugar mountain i took a few final pictures of the interior of POFQ......









Continued in Next post.......

Bebopping over to BLT.......part 1

Here's a few more photos from our seating area......

Pretty pictures.....





A Very cool old piano.......



You know me. I love anything with a music theme......



But alas, as much as I wanted to stay and continue my visit at the FQ, I knew it was time to go. We had a schedule to keep and we were already behind. It was close to 9am when we hit the bus for MK so we had no hope of seeing the opening show. But that was OK. We were staying at BLT and we were optimistic that an opening show would be in our future.

Now the decision was whether to check-in at BLT and get our dining plan or just go into the MK. MK won out. It was already hot and the thought of the extra trip back and forth to BLT was not very appealing. We decided to stay at the MK until lunch time and then head on over to BLT to check in.

So where is my first picture of the castle???? The iconic castle that everyone photographs upon entering the MK and walking down mainstreet. Oops - I don't have one. At least its not my first picture. You see Jen was in need of a battery for a pin she had and I was in need of a bio break because you know how I had to drink about 3 more cups of that pomegranate lemonade before we left POFQ.

So while Jen was off searching for her button battery I hung a left for a pit stop. When I came out I couldn't resist a quick visit to the fire station. I never even realized this was here until I took the KTTK tour. In Disneyland Walt had his little apartment above the fire station. The last time I was here I noticed that there were fire company badges from all over the country.......











So, here' s a shout out to all those fire fighters (men and women) who protect our safety and put out fires. Strong work people! One of these days I am going to bring a badge from the citizens hose, the company I belong to. I'm considered a fire fighter, but only by proxy since I belong to the marching band.

Just so you know - if you really like that picture of Mickey and the firefighter, you can purchase a statue right here in the fire station.....



Check out these very appropriately themed pumpkins.....





Jen sent me a text that she was in one of the shops on main street still searching tirelessly for that special button battery. As soon as I entered the shop my fascination with you know what was rekindled.....



If I was a kid I would HAVE to have one of these backpacks. Heck, I am an adult and I wanted to buy one of these backpacks. So cute!

Still no battery Jen and I set off in search of Space Mtn FPs. And you know what? We finally found that amazing castle......




Have you noticed that its getting harder and harder to take a picture of the castle because of all those pesky trees? I actually found the perfect spot to take a picture of the castle, but I can not reveal it to you until much, much later in this TR. Hmmmmmm.....got you thinking now, don't I?

This is one cool topiary.....









Oh the familiar sites and sounds of tomorrow land......










After stopping for many pictures we finally made our way over to Space mtn. We grabbed fast passes and then got in line because the wait was, well, practically walk on. We were directed to the left side and I got the back car. Oh joy! The space mtn renovations did nothing to smooth out the jerkiness of that back car . As jen reminded me later, I am "old" and I did find that the back car on Space mtn has gotten increasingly painful. So I tried to enjoy the ride the best I could despite my fear of whip lash.

Ok - kidding - it wasn't that bad! Close though!

When I return.......will we finally bebop it over to BLT tower? Will our room be ready? What about our view? All that and more coming up in the next update!

OMG your pictures are getting me so excited for my trip! 9 days!! Not that my pics will ever live up to yours but at least I'll be seeing the same things!

Is it wrong that beignets are the primary reason I want to stay at PO?

I am finding myself pulled toward pins and vinylmation... god help me.

When we got to POR we couldn't find a seat at first, but then a couple of people took off and we grabbed their seats. We were close to the bar and a bartender quickly took our order. We both decided to try the teaka tea. Is that right Jen? Was that the name? All I really remember was the CM took our order and then took FOR EVVVVVVVVEEEEERRRRRRR to bring our drinks. When we finally got them, they were really quite good. Thank you Mr bartender.

Bob Jackson.....where can I start????? He was da bomb. He is such a talented piano player and a fabulous entertainer. I had heard he was good. That is not an understatement. He is really a lot of fun. And, of course, the more you drink, the funner Bob Jackson gets.

Here's Bob....


OK - that is one small picture of Bob. Let's see if I can find a youtube video....

Here we go.....

Beeeeutiful pictures! I'm ready to go back too!
Unlike Christine I have a few more days to go....

I'm with you on Space Mtn. way too jerky for an enjoyable ride, not just the back car though.

Can't wait to see your BLT view!

When I go into TrenD I wish I was 20 years younger, 10 lbs lighter, and I wish I had a pocket full of cash. Then I would buy up everything in there DITTO THIS

Love all the detail pics you are taking! Glad the show was great-I have heard he is a hoot. Yay for making it over to the MK. Can't wait to see pics from BLT.

Great job, MaryEllen. I love your pictures of the outside of the POFQ, etc. We visited ScatCats once and really enjoyed it. Your pictures at the MK are great. I haven't got a great castle shot the last two years because that big, stupid crane is always up to put up the Christmas lights.

Your pictures are beautiful (but they always are! )

I love how the pumpkins are themed to fit the building they are in front of

Looking forward to hearing about BLT
