Way to go on the double update, I am loving it.

OK, so you made it all the way to the resort and still have Waldo, thought he might be a goner at the airport.

You are scaring me about POFQ. I am an admitted resort snob and only did a moderate once (CBR) and did not like it. Since I had carryover points on the DVC contract I bought and couldn't get a DVC room for all my nights I went with FQ (heard about the beignets) to use those carryover points up.

Love that TE wanted her dessert, I would have been mad too if my dessert was left behind, way to go on the staff sending it over.

Glad Maddie is feeling better.

Can't wait to hear about your first park day!

OMG....the WANDERING has started........

No sign of Waldo anywhere........Waldo finally shows up after wandering the mall area for a bit.
Tracy, you MUST think about tethering him.......it's for his OWN good.....

Again with the waiting.......is this a "theme" going on here......THESE PEOPLE MUST HAVE MISSED THE DIS MEMO !!!!!!

Being the good DISer that I am, I zigzag my stroller through the queue, but Rick being the cheater that he is, walks up to the 1st empty window and plops his AAA notebook down and ID down! D’OH! Sucka!
I hope you got him BACK for that one........

Our row of rooms:
Yeah......comparing it to a Deluxe (like the Poly), it IS a bit of a letdown. But as far as the value/moderates......it is my FAV !!!!

I looked around and first thing I did was pull out the Clorox wipes and wiped all the hard surfaces. I think they owe me for that. By the look of the wipes that I used, I wonder when’s the last time they cleaned the phone or TV remote.
Note to self......remember the CLOROX wipes in December, <CHECK>

They still couldn’t find the reservation, so they told me not to worry, they’d get us in as soon as possible. Would 20 minutes be ok? Heck yeah! What’s 20 minutes when you’ve been waitin’ 10 hours?

We took a seat in the waiting area and watched a mother wail on her kid. Apparently this kid hocked a loogey on some people and the people told the mother. I would say this kid was about 8 or 9 and knew better, I’m sure. The mother was wailing on this kid making a HUGE scene in the middle of the Mill area. He kept saying those people were liars and she kept shaking him about. Me and my family just sat there in shock at the whole scene. I can’t imagine what goes on in the privacy of their home with public behavior like this. Let me just say we saw a lot of this type of public spectacle.
I guess that family FORGOT their DISNEY MAGIC.......so sad

Awe, poor Maddie.....sick on the FIRST day at Disney...... I'm glad she ended up ok......

When I hung up, I told TE what had happened and she was mad at Waldo and wanted me to call Andy and tell Waldo to go back and get hers. I did just that and Waldo said no way, he’s not going back. Uh oh… another battle has begun!
Wow, sounds like "Battle of the Boatwright Dessert-Stars".......

I loved the mommy-pile pic! So cute!

Waldo and his wanderings just make me laugh. I can't wait to hear what he does next.

Poor Maddie----I am so glad that she felt better. No sick kiddos at Disney....that would be just too sad.

I am wondering if you upgraded.

Looking forward to more.

Can't wait for more chica!

I have a story about this! When the boys were about 14 months, we flew out to northern CA to meet a bunch of DH's family. On the way home, my BIL - a very nice looking young man who ALWAYS gets the "random" search - was carrying Buzz through the security - he was just starting to walk, so he couldn't go through on his own. Yup, sure enough, BIL gets asked to step aside. He tried to hand Buzz over to me, and they wouldn't let him. The 14 month old had to be searched, too. No joke. Sigh. Then, we tried to take a picture of the 14 month old getting wanded (because, honestly, it was so funny/ridiculous) and they got REALLY upset. Oops.

Pshew, I thought we were going to have a repeat of Jo's incident!

Well, it sounds like a fairly good travel day. No one got permanently lost, your flight was good, even if it was late, you still got to eat, and at least you got towel animals!

Thanks for all the updates! Wow! Love the pictures, too!

It is always a downer when you find that your hotel is not everything you were expecting.

That was great that Boatwright's was able to seat you even though they claimed the ADR was missing and how nice of them to send your desserts to your room.

So glad that Maddie didn't get sick and I know exactly how they felt about wanting everything in the gift store, I am the same way!

Loving your report so far. I'm glad Maddie bounced back quickly! I've really enjoyed your previous TR and pre-trippie - can't wait for Waldo's antics!
With your report thus far, I am glad that I switched us from POFQ to CSR...now I just hope that we like CSR. I definitely felt that Magic at Poly but didn't at YC, so we'll see....
Looking forward to more

WOW, you are quick. Im away for 2 days and you already have this party started!!!
Ok Im a little late but.....IM HERE.
So glad you are back and cant wait to hear of your adventures. Dont have time to multiquote everything as you are already on page 5 with like 3 or so updates, you are the bomb T.
1st and foremost, I cant believe you had the same experience with the wipes at POR. We stayed there for 2 nts in Jul and had to switch. It was so dirty. I am a big germ-o-phobe as DS5 has lots of contact allergy issues. No matter how much I used those clorox wipes, it NEVER got clean
Ok now that I got that out of the way....
Glad all worked well with Andys ticket and that the kids were good on the plane. I cant believe Even didnt sleep a wink on the plane.Glad to know these things jusst dont happen to us.
Happy to hear Waldo hasnt gotten lost as of yet, is that a record??
Glad Maddie got over being ill so quick not fun to be sick at all but especially on 1st day wth all the extra excitement.
TE cracks me up wanting her dessert and Waldo is even funnier for not going to get itThey sound like my parents
Ok cant wait to hear more, you arent even there for 24hrs yet and I LOVE this so much.
Again glad your back

Ah yes, the delay was due to a delay from Hawaii to LAX, thus making the continueing flight to Orlando delayed as well. The pilot didn't know exactly what the delay in Hawaii was, but assured us it wasn't a mechanical reason. Whatver, just get me to my happy place, pronto dude!

I think Waldo was on his best behavior due to fear of being left behind. See this time my brother was with me and he really has no patience for Waldo waiting. Which was great for me.

I seriously think that Disney Moderate "resorts" are a sham. What's really the difference between a value and a moderate? A stupid pool slide and possibly 5 cubic feet of more room space? Give me a break. I would have rather stayed in a value, because at least it stands for what it is. Values are no frills and that's fine. But these Moderate resorts are BS. They should be changed to Values and leave it at that. Ok, sorry Janet, rant over.

I'm not going to start ranting again, Mo but..... if your an admitted resort snob you're not going to be happy. I know I went from the Poly to the FQ and that's a HUGE step, but still if it was a least clean, it'd be ok. It was nasty. More on this later... oh and I do a "test" for the mousekeepers too! Stay tuned!

Thanks, Dori. You know the funny thing is some people just love POFQ, infact my brother thought it was great and he's stayed at 5 Diamond resorts with me as well. He thought the themeing was fantastic. To each his own. Maybe I would have liked POR better? I dunno.

Ooooh... funny you should say that. When we went to the Boardwalk for dinner, I didn't feel the magic there at ALL! Strange how we all have our little quirks, no?

OMG, T. You're going to love the installment where I give mousekeeping a "test" to see if they really do clean the room or just fix the bed and throw new towels on the toilet. Which, BTW grosses me out. Why would you put fresh towels on the poop shoot?

Nice update. I really like the pic of your kids dog piling you on the plane! I am scared to have the same reaction to the POR. I have read so much positive but is there anyway for it to live up to the hype? I am sure hoping so!

Looking forward to reading more.

I really hate flying AA because of all their flight delays. Unfortunately they're one of the cheapest carriers for flying to Puerto Rico and we have no other choice. I feel your pain though and was panicking for your ADR as I read the installment. So glad you were able to make it on time. Score on them sending your dessert to the resort .

Thank goodness Maddie didn't get sicky on you what a bummer that would've been for both of you.

Sucks about POFQ, everyone on the DIS always has such high remarks about POR, I wonder how much different it is from POFQ. I feel your pain on the resorts though. After having stayed in 2 fairly large rooms the last 2 trips where there were 2 bathrooms I was definately suffering in a regular room. I was quite disappointed in it though because it was a Deluxe Resort studio and it wasn't that much bigger than a regular hotel room. So glad I didn't shell out big bucks for that sucker.

Wow Waldo has fairly behaved himself so far.
