So on this night we thought we would get ice cream sandwiches with our meals. So we go to check out and the cashier says they aren't on the dinning plan. We say that they were the other day. Not anymore she says. So we ask what to do with them, and she says "I don't know, take them back?". So we take them back and there is a manger type behind the counter and they explain that Disney's fiscal year changed so it isn't a desert anymore. So off to the garbage the ice cream sandwiches go.
OMG that is crazy. I hadn't hard about the change in the desserts. What a waste to make you throw them out. We are going to POR in Dec, glad we know ahead of time that things have changed.

Favorite

As you can see from my signature Sports is my favorite resort. Since I cannot hear well I have no flushing problems and rather enjoy hearing kids run around and having fun so it fits me perfectly. I am well known there so they take pretty good care of me most of the time. My only major complaint is that there are times when I get so many towel animals that we can barely get in the room. That is what happens when you stay 2 weeks or longer maybe.

monkeyhouse, I am sorry you were disappointed in not getting the ice cream sandwich. That is what comes of being a frequenter of the DIS boards and a frequent guest. Folks on a trip of a lifetime or had not been there in years would not notice the difference. I agree it is such a waste. I will have to look carefully and make sure that the purple and white DP logo is on the items I want and then hope that they are.

We are headed there shortly. Thank you all for the heads up.

We were at POP in January 2007 and at All-Star Sports in September 2009.
We are going back to Sports at the end of November. I wish we could have tried Music or Movies but they were not available.
Anyway, I'm sure we will have a good time.

Scared off

peanuts017, usually Sports is one of the first to sell out, Music is usually the last. Maybe folks were scared off because of Pop Warner but they are not coming in until the second week of our trip and you will probably be long gone by then so all should be great.

I think you will like Sports, we do.

See you there!

Hey Linda, so glad you are relaxing and enjoying. Wish I could be there sharing the ice tea on the beach with you. Anything would be better than sleet and cold, right. lol Be safe. Miss you.

No shadow

Miss Ang, it feels as though you ARE here. Just missing my 'shadow' though.

Tornado watches and floods back home from all reports. Hoping it is all just a false alarm. Our home will be fine but worry about the others.

Happy Turkey day to you all!

We are arriving the afternoon of Sunday the 12th for one night before we switch resorts. (We were just at Sports in late Sept. for MNSSHP and had a great time!)

Since that is the last official day for Pop Warner, will most of that crowd be cleared out by early that afternoon/evening, or are there usually a bunch of folks that stay on?

TIA

You will probably be fine. 2 Years ago we arrived on Sat at the end of PW. Sat was still busy, but Sunday was sooo quiet.

We stayed at the Sports when we went on a quickie 1-night trip last October. It was quiet, and the rooms were clean and of good size. I thought it was fantastic value. Personally I believe you just can't beat the convenience of an on-site resort. We stayed off site once... and that isn't going to happen again. (and it was only because it was another quickie trip and all of the value resorts were booked full)

I would not stay off-site because you would lose that Disney Magic.

I understand why people do stay off-site but it is not for me.

I grew up staying off site. Only once when I was younger did my parents opt to stay on property (25th anniversary) and unfortunately, CBR didn't sway them. FH and I stayed at ASMo for 3 nights last Nov. and loved it. Then in Jan 2010, FFIL asked us to run with him during the marathon weekend of 2011. I'll be running the 5k while FH and FFIL run the goofy challenge. I just found out today that FFIL booked us rooms at ASSp from 1/5 - 1/9/11. I can't wait to try out a new resort.
