That's what ME looked like for me too! I've never seen it like that! What time did you get there? I think we got to the ME area around noon. Maybe that's a popular arrival time?

Jill took off in the direction Brooklynn was looking, leaping the line poles and catching up with Bella when the rows ran out and they both found themselves at the wall. The whole time Jill was leaping, I wasn't worried about her catching Bella, because I knew she was right there and someone would catch her, but I was worried about a plethora of security guards tackling the leaping woman who was suddenly doing the jackrabbit hop up and down in the crowd.
That mental image just cracked me up! So much so that Clay asked me what was so funny so I had to explain it to him.

Looks like ya'll had a great location!

Jill does the flight paperwork, and I do the rooms, so I didn't know that there was no 6 anything flight that morning. Ours was an 8 something, which means we were arriving later than normal. I don't know if it is always like that in the midday or not.

Must be. I really like the 6 a.m. flights. You have the entire day ahead of you, and we've never had a line.

We were on the third floor on the lake side. It was nice to be able to take pictures of the construction from right there. The best thing was that we could sit inside the room on the bed (or stand outside on the balcony) and watch Illuminations.

Judging by your name, you would not appreciate the plastic bugs I found in the dollar bins at Target yesterday.

Where in Tennessee are you?

I never found out what building you all were in. We were in the 80's section. I didn't remember from the first time we stayed at Pop, but Everything Pop truly has a unique smell. I'm glad you had all your family together for a little while this weekend. When is spring break?

Looks like they have got a lot of work done over the last couple of months. There wasn't that much completed at Christmas.

Hmm...Bella must be related to my nephew Kai! He's always taking off on us! Well, you know what they say - getting there is half the fun! Certainly sounds like an exciting beginning to your newest Disney adventure! I'm glad there were no big security issues! I've never seen lines like that for ME! That is crazy!!

I got quite a laugh out of the Bella security line fiasco. I spent many years in daycare she's what we called an "ESCAPEE".

Brooklyn didn't look too trilled to be hugging that tree, hopefully it will grown on her.

I have never seen such a crowd at ME, I hope it cleared out fast.

So glad you're at your happy place.

Boy am I late to this party.

As for Bella... that will probably be Luke this June, running like a nut in the airport. I think I will be in charge of him, and my husband and daughters will probably chose to ignore and act as if they don't know either of us

I can't wait to smell those chocolate chip cookies and check out your Pop!

Just found this. What a cute kitty.

Love the tree pic.

Looks like they r coning along with the construction.

Looks like I won't be seeing u in July as I have canceled my trip then. I just don't have enough vacation days with my trips and other things coming up. Another time I will see you there.

Looking forward to more.

I'm here finally as well - thanks for the updates on facebook Jill - it was great to keep up while you were actually there.

haven't been on the boards much - life is rather busy at the moment. We are heading into our winter and daylight saving ends in the next couple of weeks - its the countdown to cold, rain and wind - but no snow like you guys thank goodness. We have had a lovely summer so wont complain.

Just caught up on the last few pages of the last report and now going back to read the 7 pages I am behind on this one already.

Hope you are all well.

Oh my goodness! That is a very large group of people waiting for ME! I don't think I have ever seen anything like it in other pictures (we have never flown into Orlando).
