Did Someone Say Adventure?! An Oct '13 TR! (Updated 5/27/14)

Hello all and welcome to my first ever TR! Some of you may have read my PTR, but if not you can find it here.

This trip was absolutely magical with lots of pixie dust! It was also a trip of many firsts, which I can't wait to share!

Who: Myself, Mom & Dad
What: A trip to Disney!
Where: 7 nights at Pop Century
When: October 5th-12th
Why: Who needs a reason to go to Disney?! haha but really we had MANY reasons! 1) I've been dying to attend MNSSHP & F&W. 2) Birthday celebrations for myself and parents, as well as anniversary celebration for them! 3) We were in need of a good family vacation!
How: Flying with JetBlue!

I am an only child and very close with my parents. While I was just at Disney in January, they haven't been in about 20 years! Alot of this was brand new to them and it was very exciting to be their "tour guide". They were very impressed with my touring strategies and even though I may have packed a lot in, they admitted they were glad to see so much and that I did a good job, so yay for me!

So I hope you will join me in recapping an amazing trip

I subscribed to your TR since we were there at the same time and also stayed at POP. Very interested to see if you got any of our crew in your pictures. There were 26 of us total!!!

Do you fly out of Newark Liberty (I'm assuming only because it says you are in New Jersey)? If so you MUST have been in the "A" terminal, and YES it is pretty tiny and really really boring. Terminal "C" has so much more.

Haha, you are certainly not the first to go to the wrong side at MCO.

YAY POP!!

YAY POP!!
Yes I do and yes it was Terminal A! You sure know your stuff! I am so used to Terminal C that it was quite a difference! Glad to hear I'm not the only one who makes that mistake

Yay, you started the trip report! I can't wait to hear all about it. Pop is a family favorite in our house! I also just customized our magicbands for our upcoming trip, and it's good to hear you didn't have many problems with them. We're going to be there for Food and Wine Festival, so I'm excited to hear about your experience with that too! I can't wait to read more!

Just lettin ya know I am reading! I love child free TRs! Nothing against kids, I just don't have any so I have a hard time relating and getting into the reports of those who do.

I stayed in the 80s section of Pop on our last trip but the poster in our room was a little different from the one you posted. I am now wondering if they updated it or if there are actually multiple versions of the posters within each decade. I guess I will see what happens on my next Pop stay in March...requested the 80s section.

Because I am a weirdo with an over active imagination, the picture of the in flight music made me chuckle. I had this mental image in my head of some cool collected radio announcers voice advertising Jet Blue's all day, every day music selection of 80s, 90s, and Demons.
