Yes, I figured they were washing something upstairs. On the way to the elevators, there was no way around it, we had to go through the puddles. My BF uses crutches, so we had quite a time of getting through without slipping! It was fine though, we were on our way to the parks!

macraven, we probably totally passed each other! Goodness!

i did see someone on crutches a few times.

i bet we did miss each other in passing.

i was using a cane while down there.
i was the blonde with long hair.
does that ring a bell?

well, that is a stupid question of me, there were lots of peeps at the hotel when i was there...

i had another surgerical procedure on my knee 20 days prior to the trip.


you know, come to think of it, i did see the power washing of the buildings for TD 10 either the day i checked in or that next day.

i love to put 3 tomato slices on my burgers.
macraven great tip on the extra's for the burger.
I will have to request that next time.

I just realized that I have been running these crazy swaps (2 at the same time at one point!) for over 3 years now!! I really don't have a life .

I'm often asked why I do it and the answer is: it makes me feel connected to Disney World when I can't be there and I like helping folks have a more affordable stay. Maybe some day Disney will figure out that ALL resorts should have fridges in them but until that happens, I will keep on swapping!

JOIN TODAY FOR 2010!!!

I'm so glad i've found this forum. I have just booked our first visit to WDW staying in AS Sports next May. I was beginning to think i'd have been better booking POP after reading some reviews but after finding and reading through this thread i think we are going to love it, especially my 9 year old son

I think you will enjoy it. We stayed at POP last fall and I really didnt enjoy it (again just my opinion). The foodcourt was way to crowded all day long and too many people. Our first trip was to AS Sports and it will always have a special place in my heart.
