All I could do was stare at him speechless and keep asking him if it was a joke, even today I'm asking that. lol. Nope not a joke and trip has been booked. I am sooooooooooooo happy. So we will be going Sept 28-Oct 4, 2014. We will be celebrating our actual anniversary day there as well. Our anniversary is on Oct 2nd. I have the best husband in the world. So we will be back at POP in 279 days.
Yay!!! That's awesome!!

I can't wait to plan an adult only trip. I want to do a deluxe resort with the QSDP. But I have quite a few more years until I do that. How are your kids taking your trip without them?? We're going again in November of 2015. I can't wait to start planning again.

She's not exactly happy but she's 16 so I'm sure she'll get over it pretty quickly, what with boys & clothes to think about. Lol

You are going to have a fabulous time! My DH and I just went on an adult only trip this past October and enjoyed just having to worry about us. We splurged and had an anniversary dinner at the California Grill, attended MNSSHP and took The Keys to the Kingdom Tour. We had an absolute blast!

I've been back home for 2 weeks now and I am surprised that I really want to go back next Dec!! I was the for 8 days and I was pleasantly surprised about Pop Century resort. Was super quiet. In bldg 3, 4th floor. Did online check in and didnt have to wait long at check in desk. Room was very clean. Had fridge......want very cold at first...put something inside and it starts to cool down. Bus service was great. Only had to wait once due to all,those folks with wheelchairs/scooters to load. But not bad. Only really long walk was at MK to the Pop bus stop. For court naturally a little busy at meal times. Only wish there was more choices in cakes beside Chocolate. Loved the refillable mugs. Pick up a ogle drink with your meals and take back to the room for later, use mugs if you eat at the food court. Great drinks at the pool bar.
I really could go for a big Mickey pretzel right now. LOL.
The line for BOG at lunchtime was totally stupid long!!!!!! Can only imagine how it's gonna be in the summertime!
Fast passes to meet the Princesses was genius. Xmas decorations and seeing the castle lit up was fun.
Didn't really care for Animal kingdom for some reason. Just not feelin it. But I did meet Winnie the Pooh and tigger there.
Can have Photopass folks scan ur magic band for pictures. But if you use the photopass Card...hang on to it. I used the card some along with my own camera and not all showed up on the photopass site. Now I've got to hunt my card p and enter the code.

We were there in early December, and fortunately we've been so busy to miss it much! First time in December and we had a great time.

Well, I could go for one of the POP chocolate crossiants... they are soooo good!

Two weeks until I'm at POP Century for 8 days. This will be the longest trip ever at a value resort, but it is also a solo vacation and I'm doing the marathon.

Haha--I'll be glad when I scratch it off of my bucket list. It's tough training.
