Wow, your first day sounds super fun and super exhausting!

I really appreciated your texts throughout your trip! I felt so special!

I was so excited about your DIS meet! When I got simultaneous texts from you and Heather I almost died of jealousy! I wanted to be there with all of you so badly! Jen and I were texting about our desperation to be there too the entire time!

Aww, we could have stopped if you'd told me you wanted one! I don't like pineapple, so it never crossed my mind

I've never gotten good pics on that ride before

It was pretty good! The portion was HUGE, but it was tasty!

I can't believe your camera is 4 years old! Mine is one year old and I feel like it takes crappy pictures! I've been reading that Panasonics are the best brand to get for point and shoot, which is weird, because I would assume it would be Canon or Sony. My camera is a Canon and it's ok, but it could be better!
I dunno about the others, but I was having a great time My camera's good for daylight shots, but the nighttime ones just suck so bad. The flash looks awful and without, you can't see what it is.

It was! I'm really glad you enjoyed the texts I liked texting you, but I kept thinking you and Jen were going to kill me

We really need to try and set up a Dis trip or something with everyone. That would be a blast

I figured, I just felt kinda bad teasing you with Disney

We should start a post about it once you guys get back It'll be easier that way

Love the pics! I haven't seen the MSEP in years. Brings back so many memories of when I was little.

I never got to go to WDW when I was a kid, so Spectro was the first evening parade I saw at MK. I still love it The music from MSEP was fun, but I just didn't like the parade.

It was awesome! It brought back memories of dancing (literally) down Main Street with a couple of my old coworkers at 4am After we were done cleaning in Liberty Square or Fantasyland, we'd get sent up to Main St to help up there.

The dismeet was a lot of fun They continued throughout the week My LGMH was in the holder on my lanyard, so I'm not sure how many people actually saw it. I did run into a few Disers, though

Sunday, October 24, 2010 - Pop Century, MNSSHP

While I may not have slept in as late as I'd have liked to, I still woke up around 11:30am or so. I decided to go swim for a bit and get lunch to give the housekeeper a chance to do the room. I went to Everything Pop and got beef and broccoli, a fruit cup, and a red Powerade.





The beef and broccoli wasn't bad, but it tasted like the frozen kind you can buy in the grocery store and make at home. I make beef and broccoli at home from scratch (as well as chicken and broccoli), and I thought it was very substandard. The fruit cup was good, but the grapes were soft, and the Powerade was fine.

I met up with hannahoh from here on the Dis, as we'd gotten in touch here because I offered up my arcade voucher on the Pop FAQ, since I had no interest in using it. We chatted for a little bit and then went our separate ways.

I went to the computer pool for a swim and took pictures of things along the way.











































This is Pooh. He became my little trip mascot. He spent most of the trip just hanging out on my lanyard with Eeyore, who arrived the next day!



What the housekeeper did with the Piglet and my towel.

I was born this year!















My family's planning a reunion in 2012 and I think we'll be staying at Pop, so I really want to get a picture of my brother pretending to be squished by the turpentine can. We LOVED Roger Rabbit growing up.













When my brother was born. I thought I'd taken a picture of 1986, but I apparently didn't. That's when my sister was born.

After swimming, I took a shower and got dressed in my costume for the evening. I'd made a black and white polka dot skirt and wore it with a white polo that I wear for work, and I also wore black gym shorts underneath. Once I was ready to go, I headed for the buses.



I got to MK just before 4 and entered with my MNSSHP ticket.







I wandered a bit before I stopped at Casey's for some french fries and cheese sauce (of which, I have no pic for some reason). After that, I wandered into Adventureland and went into the Tiki Room.



While I was there, Sharon called me and left me a voice mail, but I couldn't hear a thing she said, so I called her from Frontierland. Still couldn't hear her, so we resorted to texting. She and her DH were on Main Street, so I headed up that way to meet with them and took a picture of the pianist at Casey's.



We wandered into Liberty Square and rode HM twice. I rode once with each of them, for trivia purposes. We also did the magic shots.



That's just the Ichabod display at Sleepy Hollow.

We went to Crystal Palace to wait for LuvChefMic (Ruthie), who never showed. Neither of us had heard from her in weeks, so we were hoping she'd still show up, but she didn't, so we checked in as three instead of four.

And then Pooh discovered mini!Pooh!













There were veggies there, but I forgot to take the picture until I'd eaten them



Like me, Pooh loves dessert!

Okay, we all ordered lemonade and Sharon's DH and I were apparently drinking it faster than she was. So every time the server brought us another lemonade, she brought one for Sharon, too. At the end of the meal, these were Sharon's glasses:







During dinner, Sharon's DH had to leave due to a conference engagement, so we finished dinner as just the two of us. Once we were done, we went to Thunder Mountain and apparently at some point stopped for candy.



Random family of pirates.

I love the way the HM CM's get done up for MNSSHP!

We walked through Fantasyland and found that the line for the carriage was almost non-existent, so we jumped into that. After that, we stopped at the bathroom so I could take my skirt off and stick it in my bag, as I was just way too hot. Thank god for those shorts.

We went to go ride Pooh, but stopped along the way to see the Hag and take pictures of random costumes. I don't have a picture of the Hag on my camera, so I think it's on Sharon's.



I LOVE V for Vendetta! It's my favorite graphic novel.



After we rode Pooh (Sharon's first time), I got a text from Heather, asking where we were. We walked through Tomorrowland to the Hub to sit with them for Hallowishes, the Villains show, and Boo to You.

I hate that chicken!











After the parade, the four of us went back to Fantasyland to check out the line for the Dwarfs, but it was still too long. Instead, we did a bit of trick or treating through Toontown and met Alice and the Hatter on the path to Tomorrowland. We went on Space Mountain, then ran to Peter Pan because Brad wanted to go on it.



I saw these two at some point.

After that, I think it was midnight by the time we got out, so we went up to the buses, took our separate buses (Heather and Brad were at AKV, Sharon at CSR, and I was at Pop), and went back to our hotels to pass out. I got back to Pop around 12:40am, got cleaned up and changed, and went to sleep.

Great pics from the party!! I love seeing the costumes people come up with. How did the party crowd feel to you that night ?- it didn't look very crowded.

Thanks! I loved seeing them as well I know we're not really supposed to take pictures of others in costume, but I don't see the problem

The crowd felt all right. The only time I really felt the lines were too long were when we were considering getting in line for the Dwarfs. We skipped that, and I actually didn't get the picture until the 28th. But no, it didn't feel very crowded. I had a really good time, but I also love Halloween and the MNSSHPs
