Of course you went to the MK first! Can't wait for more

You & Chris are going to love Pop! It's the only Disney hotel we've ever stayed in other then All Star Movies (when we stayed on property the first time).

I loved the pictures of your Dis meet with MeMom , so I decided to come along on the trip report. I am glad I made it in time for the MK. Great on getting a refurbished room.

Wow! You started 3 days ago & you are already on page 9? It reminds me of Jordan's TR that I can never keep up on.

I love how you took a ton of pictures of your first 2 hours there. LOL. I can tell that you were excited. Can't wait to hear about your first MK experience.

You both look so great! Congrats on eating healthier. We got a Wii Fit Plus for Christmas too and we have so much fun with it.

Those "flying cookies" flying through space can be seen
I'm hoping that the little guy likes them!

I love the new bedspreads and the privacy curtain in front of the sink. The new tvs are awesome, but I think I'm going to miss the old tv stand/dresser. There were more shelves and the drawers were bigger. I'm sure it will still be fine though.

I love your "Just Engaged" buttons. So cute! Aren't the bus stops at Pop the greatest? I'm looking forward to reading about your first day at MK!
I'm glad you liked the pics of our room. It was SO nice!

I did like the bus stops. I just hated how long the lines sometimes got!

Yikes 43 miles of construction...I will need to make a note of this since I am sure it will still be going on by the time we leave!

The engagement pins are adorable! I can't wait to hear about the other surprises you got!!

And the rooms at Pop look really nice! I never knew!
It was definately exciting to finally be there!

Yeah, definately be prepared for lots of road construction!

Congrats on the engagement, too, by the way. You guys make a cute couple...
Aw thanks. It was definately exciting to be congratulated all the time for our pins.

We honestly didn't have a problem with the crowds. Maybe it's because we're used to the summer crowds that this was such a difference for us.

We always go to MK first.
That's going to be me when I have kids too!

Oooh we always have to go to MK first!

Hey girl! Glad you were able to see the pics better!

You'll be seeing more Pop pics in future updates.

It was definately different than staying at our usual- OKW. But, we actually loved Pop. The room was nice..clean..the gift shop was good-sized...the food court had lots of choices..the whole resort was overall clean.

Haha, I can't believe how many pages this TR is already on. It makes me feel loved.

LOL I did take lots of pics. I took lots for two reasons: 1) the TR and 2)Mom, Dad, and Sis- since they are usually with, I wanted to show them everything we did.

We love our Wii Fit Plus! Our Mii's look exactly like us..it's hilarious!

You were in the same building as I was at Pop! Even though it was facing the Parking Lot, it was sooo close to the bus stops! It was great wasn't it. Especially after a long day at the park....
