A Mostly Captioned Picture Report updated 2/10x4 The End!

My daughter and I traveled to Disney last week for a belated birthday trip for her. She turned 13, and I wanted to travel with her before she decided she was too big for her mom.

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:



There's me, Amanda, a 30 ish special education administrator, and Sweetie, a 13 year old rising 8th grader.

Our trip report will be mostly in pictures, captioned, of course, and you can ask questions along the way.

Here we go!

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!


Breakfast of Mice!


Best. Sign. Ever.


My, that's a big marquee you have!


We're there!


70's Building. Top floor. Corner. Real close to the main building


Obligatory room picture. Same old, same old


From the room. Very close to the main building


Anyone for yo-yo?


Crossing the bridge. Will they still call it Generation Gap?


We're on the EAC!


Dude!


Living in the anemone!


Back over to POP Century

We had a fun foray into Art of Animation, and we were looking forward to later in the night!

I think AoA looks so cute. It makes the Poly girl want to try something new!

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?
