All caught up again!

We love POR...I've never stayed at POFQ, but we did walk there one morning for breakfast. Our experience in the food court was a good one, but I'm sorry to hear that yours was not.

The boat ride to DTD is one of my very favorite things about POR! What a beautiful and relaxing ride! Glad you were able to experience it.

I just got back from our summer vacation to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg and just got caught up on your TR. We drove through Cades Cove one evening and I shared with those in my car the story of when your guys were told to put their hands in the air to avoid the mosquitos or something. Anyway, that's too bad about the Food Court experience. We stayed at POR on our first trip to WDW and I loved it. We didn't take the time to walk around POFQ, but I have read too about the small size of the resort. I just don't like the faces in the food court...way too creepy for me and my crew. On a side note, I love the photo of your mom and Hunter in the food court. I just love the dynamic between her and your kids.

Sorry about your food court experience. I was looking at POFQ or Riverside and opted with going to my fav CBR! So glad I did! Those big masks freak me out! I would have taken one look at them and would of run the other way!
Love the pic of you and Hunter! Can't wait for more!

Too bad the food court's food wasn't up to par.

Fun picture of Hunter jamming with the gators. How cool to get a birthday message when you got to your room.

Glad Mama's pot roast was good.

You even got a good night kiss of fireworks on your way back to the resort. Very cool!
The boat ride to DTD was so nice and relaxing. We didn not get a chance to walk over to POR.

The food court was nasty!

I will probably do the latter because a) I'm too excited to sleep/wait to read what you post and b) it will help me get that much closer to our trip in October!

At least with your boss calling you while on vacation, you know your job is secure! I work for a lawyer too and while he is super smart, he can't figure out how to work the copier most of the time.

Can't wait to read the rest!!!
Welcome aboard! I know all about the anxiousness of waiting on the next trip to Disney. I'm already counting down the days to our 2014 trip.

My former boss couldn't even turn on the copy machine much less take an actual copy. My current boss does a lot of his own work but he's used to me keeping clients happy.

I hadn't looked at it that way.

The royal rooms at POR look so pretty and I'm betting that your two girls would love them.

Thanks for clarifying the mind boggling room changes with photos - what fun! Will try to catch up more this weekend.
Welcome! Good to see you! I did post a disclaimer....remember that when you see upcoming goofy pics.

Unfortunately, we did not go over to POR but I sure wish that we had. It's not that we didn't like FQ. We just didn't love it.

I like that 'little village/town' feel you get with the breezeway type courtyards. That was one of my favorite things about CSR.

Your check in experience was almost just like our experience when we stayed at CSR. I don't know if you remember me talking about it or not.
Not a bad Diser at all. I sometimes skip chit chat if I'm trying to catch up.

We toured the CSR and it was very pretty!

Sorry you had such lousy food there. I think the POR food court is better and has lots of good options.

LOL at your boss's call! What did he think you were going to do?
The food was just ! I have no idea what the boss thought that I would do. I guess he just wanted somebody to fuss to.

Oh yeah cute photo with your head in the alligator's mouth
The prop/theming didn't creep us out and it was a pretty resort but it just wasn't for us.

I wasn't too impressed with the food court at FQ either. I did love the Mardi Gras warehouse feel though. I thought it was fun!

Having said all that, I'm a lot like you. I want to be whisked away to something different from what I see every day.
I couldn't believe how small FQ is. I know that appeals to a lot of folks but it was much too small.

I definitely want to be whisked away......as a matter of fact, I could stand to be whisked away right now.

Lisa I loved all the pictures of POFQ. As you know we are booked there for our Xmas trip but if FD comes out and POFQ is not included I am thinking of changing to CBR. Sorry the food court was bad that sure doesn't make me happy. Did you like the size of the resort or did it seem too small and/or conjested? Also what did Hunter think of the pool? I am concerned my "Mr. Cool 13 yr old Grandson" will think it is lame. BTW...Hunter looks all grown up...what happened????? And what a handsome dude he is! waiting to see your next installment.

The room really was pretty. No, we didn't get over to POR but I wish that we had. We could tell that Mama wasn't up for the walk.

I will be interested to hear your final thoughts on POFQ and if you got over to POR at all.

Your mama looks great, I hope I look half that good at her age!
That's what we missed.....the spread out feel! I'm glad to hear that somebody can relate.

Mama looks really good to be 79! I hope that I look like that when I turn 79.

I know! The update was big compared to some of my others.

My hair is definitely longer than on last trip's. I wanna cut it off again!

I took a picture of snail on our trip in April at POFQ. I am 57 years old and NEVER saw a snail and shell on the move.
Weren't the dresses cute!

I hadn't thought about the weird odd strange photo thread. I need to find it again.

Seriously! You hadn't ever seen a snail moving on like that. We have little bitty ones but not big ones like that sucker was.

I'm glad that we tried it too. If we hadn't, we would always wonder whether or not we should.

We may be headed to the Smokies this Thanksgiving!

Sorry you didn't like your dinner, I remember it being good there but it's been years. Maybe they just had an off night.
The rooms were really pretty! I'm not sure if they were having an off night but it was nasty.

I think the Values have the best ones, but even then not always fabulous, though I have a few favorites at Pop, which the ydid away with.

I think the ribs at Disney for the most part are not that great anywhere, though WCC had some good ones last time I was there.

I can't wait to hear more.
The resort is beautiful but it's something that we see all of the time so I guess that's why we were underwhelmed.

We're pretty easy to please when it comes to food...especially John but this was just gross.

Love the boat ride to and from DTD. How cool that you saw fireworks- a really nice surprise. That is a great pictue looking back at DTD all lit up!

How disappointing about your food! Not a very good average- 2 meals ok, 2 inedible. What I wouldn't pay to see you and Mama storming the kitchen and showing them what's what!!

Very cool snail!
It was neat to watch the fireworks while our boat sailed back to the resort. Very cool.

It takes a lot for John to throw away food but even he couldn't stomach it.

My Mama could have taught those chefs a thing or two about Louisiana cookin' that's for sure.

I would have chalked up the bad food experience to us Louisiana folks judging Louisiana food in Florida but the greasy nastiness had nothing to do with it.

The boat ride was so nice!

Oooooh you are just the person that I need to talk to. Not about Disney but about Gatlinburg. We are going to see Lacey & Jesse over Thanksgiving. Short but sweet trip. We usually stay in Pigeon Forge but are thinking Gatlinburg. Pass on any tips that you have pleeeease!

I hadn't thought about the hands in the air trick in a while. I need to try it here and see if it works. We have mosquitos everywhere!

Mama and my kids are super super close and I wouldn't trade it for anything. She loves them with all her heart and it's mutual.

I don't know why the food was so bad that night but it definitely was. Yuck!

Thanks, I liked that pic too.

I guess that we are used to the spread out feel of the CBR so the FQ seems way too small for our liking. I can see how that would be a perk/like to other guests though.

Hunter didn't swim that night but he did comment on it looking a little kiddish. It was a nice size though.

I have no idea how Hunter grew up so fast. It seems like yesterday that he was a little tike.

Mamaw puckers up for Mr. BlueButt!

Mamaw puckers up for Mr. BlueButt!

The sun rose over Port Orleans French Quarter way too early for us weary travelers. Our original plan was to walk over and try out the beignets for breakfast but, after our not-so-good encounter at the food court, combined with the fact that we arenít big breakfast eaters, it was decided that weíd eat from the snacks that we brought along with us. Hunterís pizza came with a carton of milk since it was a kidsí meal and we had it in the fridge along with a few screw top Cokes. John was making fun of Hunter and his 6 foot tall self sipping from a little bitty milk carton like a little baby. Hunter, ever the jokester starting making crazy faces and generally acting silly.



John and I got ready first so that we could pack the overnight bags back into the luggage carrier while Mama and Hunter went through their morning routine. There was a car parked in front of ourís and it had a car cover like Iíd never seen before. It even covered their antennae:



We did our last walk-through of the room and readied ourselves to bid farewell to French Quarter. It really is a lovely resort and Iím glad that we tried it but it just wasnít for us. Forget about the rude castmember who checked-us in and the bad dinner there. That wasnít what made up our minds. As we feared before we booked the extra night at French Quarter (or even when we booked Riverside but changed our minds), it simply looked too much like home. The size of the resort, which is a big plus to many, was a minus in our book as well. I like to get out, walk around a resort and explore. The walk from end to end of French Quarter took no time at all. There didnít seem to be as many nooks and crannies to check out. Again, Iím glad that we gave it a try. Had we not, weíd have always wondered what it was like.

I snapped a couple of more pictures while standing in the parking lot:





I handed the camera over to Hunter and told him to take another picture of the entrance sign just in case the other hadnít turned out well:



Because we had nixed the idea of breakfast, we had some extra time on our hands. As I said in my pre-trip report, I had a day marked off to visit two resorts and have dinner at another. The more that we thought about it, the more sense it made to check out one before driving over to the Caribbean Beach Resort to check in for our package. So, what resort did we decide to visit this morning?

Was it?



Nope.

Was it?



Yep, it was! We stopped at the Guard Station and told them that we were there to check out the resort and look around a bit. He asked for my I.D. and then gave us a map of the resort. I parked way out in No Manís Land, not only to protect the SCAR from being bumped by other car doors (still do that even after weíve had the car for a year and a half) but also because we pretty much had to. The parking lots seemed to be overflowing with cars with lots of them being park over the parking lines or they turned in funny and were all wonkily parked. I donít like parking to those kinds of vehicles. They either donít know how to drive/park or they donít care. Meaning, they may hit my car because they canít help it or they donít care. Anybody else stay away from parking near those types? No? Maybe itís just me then.

Lots of pictures of the Art of Animation are coming up!





One of the things that turns us off of the value resorts is the fact that there is just one bus stop for each park. One long line thatís unshielded from the weather. To some that may be a minor consideration but, for us, itís semi-major. I had asked many on the AoA thread if the bus stops were covered and nobody could say for sure if they were or if they werenít. As we approached the bus stop, I could see that most portions of the lines were actually covered.



We crossed over the cross walk and entered into Animation Hall:







I believe the store was just to our left and we walked in to have a look-see at the merchandise they had for sale.



They had some really cute things for sale and they did have some resort specific merchandise which gives me some hope that Disney may decide to start more in the other resorts as well.





Looks like Hunter tried on a hat:

Landscapes of Flavorís entrance was right there so we walked on in:



It was very big and it echoed quite loudly with all of the squeals and laughter.....and crying and yelling. Ahh, families traveling to Disney.







Hunter has collected smashed pennies for quite some time and didnít pass up the opportunity to get one from Art of Animation:







After the walk through of the food court, we walked outside into the hot Florida sunshine to see these guys staring down at us:



Not really knowing what we wanted to see first, we went to our left:




And were soon in the Lion King section which is so cool! I loved this section of the resort:



Mamaw puckers up for Mr. BlueButt! Mamawís got a boyfriend! Mamawís got a boyfriend! (Sang in my singsong voice)

The Elephant Graveyard ďplaygroundĒ which is really nothing more than a tunnel or two for the kids to go through since there are signs everywhere saying no climbing. But I thought it was a playground?





My big kid sitting on an elephant tusk:



Mamaw and Hunter checking things out more closely:







By this time, the sun was beatiní down on us and there was no shade to be found. Mamaw was starting to get hot but wasnít complaining. I could just tell that she was. We plodded on and came to the Little Mermaid section of the resort:
