The End of an Era - Where Dreams Come True at Pop & Kidani **NEW 5/28 FINALE

Hey there, folks! Thanks for stopping by, why don't you stay a while? Pull up a chair, get yourself nice and cozy..... it's okay, I'll wait......

Are you ready?

Great!

WELCOME TO THE END OF AN ERA - WHERE DREAMS COME TRUE AT POP & KIDANI

Before you lies the beginning of the end. Not the end of my Disney trips - no way! It is the end of my sister, aka Bubba, being a cast member. This was my last trip with her where she held this title.
Here's what you can expect for this trip:

Who:



Me - The biggest Disney fan (aside from yourself) you will ever meet. I can't get enough of anything with the Disney name to it. Walt Disney World has become my second home and yet, I still feel like there's tons of stuff I have yet to explore. I'm the one responsible for all the planning and dining arrangements. If it weren't for me, we'd never see/do anything! I'm definitely the brains of this outfit.







Bubba - Current cast member for the next 5 days She has worked a glorious year at Le Cellier, serving all those tables, all you hungry people! If you have dined at Le Cellier within the last year, you just might have had her as a server. She dearly loves working for Disney and doesn't want to come home. Her and I get along like peanut butter and jelly

When:

February 20th-24th, 2010


Where:

3 nights Pop Century
1 night Kidani Village - 1 bedroom Villa


Why:

To get in one last trip before Bubba ended her contract





I will once again be incorporating our dining experiences in this report as well. We were on the Regular Dining plan. Here's where we ate:

Tokyo Dining
Tony's Town Square
Beaches & Cream
Crystal Palace
Le Cellier x2
Yak & Yeti
Boma
Narcoossee's...... or did we? More on this later....


So did the weather shape up to be nice? Or did the skies open up on us? Was I able to pick that perfect pearl? Did I conquer my fears and ride Expedition Everest?

Stick around and you'll find out!

Woohooty!! Here we go!!

Love the women's underwear. I think this is THE ONLY way you could post that, and get away with it. Jordan posts his men's chonies all the time- so fair is fair.

Hmm...Narcoosees. I'll bet you did- as a celebratory (or not) ending to a sweet era. I'd like to say I recognized the restaurant you posted, but can't.

Rain? It's Orlando. Probably.

Any pearl you pay $17 for oughta be more than perfect.

Sounds like this Jordan character is someone I could get along with. There's a back story to that underwear that I will touch on when the time comes.

Hmm...Narcoosees. I'll bet you did- as a celebratory (or not) ending to a sweet era. I'd like to say I recognized the restaurant you posted, but can't.

You'll just have to wait and see about Narcoossee's.... And the picture of me is in Chef Mickey's during our April trip last year.

Rain? It's Orlando. Probably.

DING DING DING! We have a winner!

Any pearl you pay $17 for oughta be more than perfect.
Ditto! Welcome Back Leisa(sp?)

Hey, I don't think I've seen you around these parts before? It's something special travelling with your sisiter. Mixes things up when you're so used to travelling with your parents.

I'm here too, I can't wait to read about another one of your Disney adventures.

So sad that it's the end of Bubbas Disney CM status, but this won't stop you from visiting Disney will it? Will you still go as often as you did?

I love your Kermit shirt and I would give my eye teeth for those Disney undies. Then I coudl say I was Disney through and through.
