Great start. I agree with the signs too. When we drove down there a couple of years ago we had a hard time leaving which could of have been a good thing. We actually were going to DTD and then home but had a found it difficult for directions to DTD from POR but we did and did some nice shopping. Can't wait for more.

WooHoo - you started!

First of all - Wet n' Wild? That bought back memories! We went there back in the 70s when I travelled to Orlando with my basketball team for tournaments. Of course, these days, I don't ever set foot off of Disney property!

Room ready early; short wait for TSM - you guys are DEFINITELY starting off with some good mojo!

Excellent pictures! Pop looks like such a cool place to stay. I love the theming. Glad your room was ready when you got there. Thanks for the TSM pics - we can't wait to ride it next month!

Home Sweet Home - BWV - I'm going back to my happy place!

Great start! Sounds like you are off to a wonderful girls trip!

I love POP also - it is always my first choice (except for the trips I can afford deluxe).

Looking forward to more!

Hi! I'm excited to read more of your report. I found Dawn's last report a few weeks ago and read that but never commented because she was almost done with it!

more details about our arrival and DHS part 1!

hey, guys!!! just chiming in here with some details and pictures i wanted to add.

yes, our first-night, non-disney hotel was just next door to wet n wild, which totally brought back memories of me losing my bathing suit top when i was 15 years old.......not fun!!!!

i have to include this picture of erica speed-walking to check into pop. i was lagging behind for some reason and i just remember laughing at how she was walking as fast as she could in there to get checked in......funny how we never walk that fast to get checked out!!!

TSM was AWESOME!!!!! i can't wait to go back with ray and let him play. i think i maybe can beat him ONCE since i know more about it going in. but i guarantee you once he gets the hang of it i won't be able to beat him.

here we are hanging out with mr. potato head......

erica didn't include some gorgeous pics she took of the fantasia topiaries in front of hollywood brown derby. i love these pictures!

after we found a spot for the block party, erica ran to the ladies room and i proceeded to sweat, oh, about 3 buckets worth while waiting for the parade. i love watching the balloon guys at disney......

this lady came by with her "pet squirrel." it was sooooooo funny - all the kids were fascinated and one little boy kept asking her why her squirrel didn't move. she was a hoot!!!

here her pet squirrel is flying......

and here he is doing "his business" in a tree on the sidewalk......

i wish erica could've seen the entire thing. she walked up just as the woman was walking away, i think.

oh, and you know those streetmosphere people that erica posted a picture of? well, we were sitting there in the beaming sun and i had a wet paper towel draped over my brown mary jane crocs because they were HOT from sitting in the sun. so those people come walking up and say, "um.....excuse us, ma'am, but here at disney's hollywood studios, we allow you to show your feet!!!" it was pretty funny!

I love the street performers. On our last trip we stood and watched 3 guys pretend like they were washing a car. They were hilarious. I've never seen the lady with the squirrel, but she looks like a hoot.
