My goodness! Where have I been? I didn't know you started! How embarrassing especially after that nice shout-out in your opening. I have to go off to stupid work now but am looking forward to coming home tonight and catching up!!

It was so great to meet you and Denny! I'm so glad we were able to make it work! Already looking forward to next time... let's start planning F&W 2010!

Double booking???????????

My feet felt fine again in the morning, but things quickly went downhill from there!

Yes....I will tell you the double booking story tonight! It's coming.

Pop really is so fun looking! I remember the first time I saw it. I was staying at CBR and I kept seeing this strange lights off in the distance. I finally realized that they were the blowling pins of the 50's building. So I took a run over there and was pleasantly surprised by what I saw. I thought it was so animated.

I really wanted to take pictures of all the shadow boxes in the main lobby, but I never got back there to do it. I spent so much time photographing other resorts and I neglected Pop a bit!

Thanks! I will say that one area I really like at POP is the gift shop. I think the resort has one of the best gift shops and I love how it flows right into the food court. Smart.....very smart!

Double booking.....coming up tonight!

Hey C - So glad you made it! It really was fun meeting you, too! I knew exactly who you were as soon as you walked in, which was so cool! Plus...I want everyone to know that as cute as you are in your pictures, you are even prettier in real life!!!!!

I am certain I would like to do a food and wine trip next year. I know I can't leave the home front for a long trip, but I KNOW I can manage a 4 or 5 night trip! Hopefully there will be free dining again, because I'd rather do that then stay on points. I'm saving my points for a 2011 soccer mom's trip.

I always think POP looks so cool and well themed. Our DME pulled in there last November on the way to AKV, and my DH was like "DUH...what's this???"
Good thing he didn't see it BEFORE we bought those DVC points!!

Yikes! Now that's a scary thought! But seriously, that's what I really like about Disney. I love, love, love all the DVC digs (and one of these days I WILL stay at all of them), but I can quickly adapt to a value stay during the low season, especially if that's what my pocket book is calling for!

AAWWW!! I miss POP. We really liked it there. Loved seeing your pics.

I have never heard of the word "Double Booking" before. I'm scared.

Thanks! I am so behind right now. I am going to do another short post until my son gets home, then I am going to sleep. Things got a little crazy tonight. I was really hoping to get to the double booking part, but that will probably have to wait until tomorrow.

Pop is a pretty cool place. I regret not taking more pictures, but I did save a few more for later.

Ahhhhhh...not to worry......the double booking will make sense very soon.

You got me wondering about the double booking too.

But when Disney makes a mistake they try to make up for it big time so I'm hoping it all turns out to be in your best interest.

Let's try this again......Epcot and Double Booking

I think I might change this installment to, "Delusions of Grandeur". What made me think I was going to get a post in tonight? I forgot I needed to review all my music for the confirmation at our church tomorrow. That took way too long. I got started late because I spent the dinner hour in the medical aide unit because of Brian's "turf toe". Oh I just cracked myself up when I thought about all the possible pictures Shocker could post to illustrate that.

Anyway - turf toe is exactly what it says - the great toe gets inflamed and irritated for stubbing into a turf field repeatedly. This doesn't happen as much on grass fields. Brian showed his toe to the athletic trainer who told him to get it checked pronto before the toe nail needed to be removed. So I took him to the medical aide unit. No need for toe nail removal now, but he did get started on antibiotics which required another 30 minutes waiting at the pharmacy.

The worst part .....there was this poor little girl (I'm guessing 6 or 7 yrs old) with the most horrendous cough sitting right near me. Not only did she sound like she was really sick, but that horrible cough got to be extremely annoying. Just when I thought we would never have to hear her again, guess who shows up in the same pharmacy with her presription. Yup. Little miss whooping cough.

So instead of sitting at the computer with a glass of wine, I sat in the doctor's office and the pharmacy. It was not exactly the way I envisioned my evening.

So back to the story........DH and I decided to drive to Epcot. Why? Because we could. Epcot is so close to Pop...love it. We parked in the AAA lot near the kennel club. We arrived at Epcot shortly after park opening and breezed through the bag check and the turnstiles. My plan was pretty loose today. I wanted to ride Soarin, see stormchasers, have late breakfast (1055ADR at Cape May Cafe) and chill in the world showcase. I felt like we spent a good amount of time in Epcot during our June trip and I think we got to do all of future world. I felt like I could easily skip TT and MS plus all the other attractions like Nemo,ect. The only thing I had an interest in doing was Ellen's energy adventure. But even that was a "take it or leave it" visit.

As we were walking over to Soarin it was easy to see how empty the park was. Sorry - no pics to prove it - you'll just have to trust me on this. We reached Soarin around 9:15 and it was pretty empty outside Sunshine Seasons. Normally this area would be busting with people, but not today. We got Soarin FP's and then checked out the standby line which said 10 mins. We, well really I, decided....what the heck?????? Let's go Standby. Can I just tell you that this was my first time riding soarin in the non -fp line. I have never ridden on this side. It was fun just going back through the queue. There were a lot of newbies on the ride, so it was fun listening to their conversations.

After Soarin I felt a little sad because there was no "Living with the Land" to ride. Remember, my batteries went dead on this ride in June. I was hoping for some pics. Instead, I needed to settle for a few balloon pictures....





Our FP return time was after 1030. We left to go find this little attraction:



On the way we took a few pics....





Storm Struck was cute and informative. It was very interactive like the fire safety game. You sit in a very small theatre and on the walls surrounding you is a house, garage, and trees. You watch a simulated storm wipe out a house and many of the items surrounding it. Then the show asked the audience how they would construct certain portions of the property to keep it from getting destroyed. Our audience did well. We answered 9 of 10 questions completely. Once our changes were implemented we saw how our new house and garage would hold up in a storm.

I liked this attraction. I think I really learned some good stuff here. I'm glad I made time for it.

By now its probably 10:30. Time to start making our way over the CMC for some yummy food.

Up next......Over booking explained.

Turf Toe is a new one to me. But then my kids are dancers and hockey players. No turf for them. I'm very familiar with coldbutitis. I get it often myself from sitting at the ice rinks.

Never heard of storm chasers. It sounds cute.
