Love the story and all the photos. I have never been to Pop and would like to check it out someday.

Did you get the meds replaced?

How did Betsy decorate that much that quickly?

Happy New Year, Everyone!!

Ann, your aerial pictures are amazing! So beautiful!

Did I wake you up that first morning?! I know I texted you while the boys were fishing. I think it was around noonish?

I freaked when you texted that you forgot meds on the plane. I told Goofy I might need to run you back to the airport to pick up meds left on the plane. But you texted back you were ok.

Next time I am at POP, I will get a pic of your 1425! I know we are staying there again in February for 2 nights. But if we go to eat to POP to eat in the meantime I'll walk over and take a pic. But you might have to remind me the room #.

That delay in bag delivery was unacceptable!!! I wonder if they have a policy in place not to deliver between x hour and y hours so they don't wake up the guest? Glad it was brought as soon as you mentioned you needed it to sleep!

Betsy, your room window is amazing!! Where did you find the Mickey ear lighted decoration?

Okay all caught up Ann!!! The trip starts out with a nice breakfast together atleast! Everyone looks happy in the photos!
That is a very pretty view of the mountains and that sunset!!!! How amazing! I am really sorry though about Zoe's medicine! Thank goodness though that your a pretty prepared person and had more...
And that was really nice for Betsy and Shelly! I am honestly quit surprised about the way that friends from here are there to listen and talk for good and bad more than people I see every week! Looking forward to more!

Hi Susan, Well Shelly and I each had our tasks we were working on while Ann and Zoe got settled. I had putting the tree together and window clings, while Shelly tackled the lights and stuffed animals. She is a seasoned window decorator at Disney, so it went quickly.

Thanks! We picked that up at Walgreens. Actually Shelly picked it up and showed me and then I had to get them for my house and then I couldn't figure out how to get them to stick to the window. Thank goodness for Shelly! She figured it out in a couple minutes!

I think maybe its the unbiasedness we all have toward each others lives. We don't actually know any of the people being complained about or whatnot, so we can all honestly be unbiased.

PS- Kira come over there too!

PPS - Now back to reading.
I keep trying to get Kira to spend more time on Dis. She has a PTR that she has ever so neglected.

Oh, thank you! BTW, I found out what Steve's cryptic message regarding the sign (can't remember the word, but it made no sense.) What he meant was neon sign....and actually it was the archway. which to my knowledge is not neo. But he swore the entire trip it was.

I wonder if that is the same guy we had behind us on the safari ride. Very loud...commenting the entire time on things.

Okay now back to reading.



Hope you are enjoying the forty posts that goes with me being on your trip with you!
I enjoyed them a lot.

Well, it helped to keep her occupied. I was trying to get things organized and letting her unwrap was a good distraction...so thank you again.

How fun that you and Betsy were able to get rooms close to each other! That definitely is an impressive window display!

That stinks that Steve and Alex's flights didn't go as smoothly as yours! Hopefully you were all rested up enough for your first full day!
It was a perfect start that was for sure! I knew my flight and arrival would be better than Steve's. I feel bad, but I knew it wouldn't go as well.

Good Picture of Zoe in the chair/throne with the Christmas tree. No matter how much begging I did, I could NOT get my kids to sit in that chair!
To be honest, I can't remember exactly where this is. I mean... we came off the plane, rode the monorail and then I was looking for Betsy. It just seemed to be there.

Happy New Year to you as well! I am so glad you are here.

I am so glad you are here.. but please enjoy your vacation. You will be back home soon enough. Believe me... it goes by so fast and even though you have close to a week left... Next week this time you will be wondering where the time went. Catch up on reading later.

Pop is a lot of fun. It isn't uncomfortable and has an awesome food court.

As for the meds...read on....

And as for Besty and her amazing decorations I know... it was quick. Crazy quick

Nope... you didn't. I am not entirely sure what morning you are talking about...but no one ever seems to wake me... so I can be pretty sure you didn't.

that is so sweet of you. It was definitely a bad parent moment. I mean.. I brought an entire medicine cabinet full of items "just in case" but when it counted

That would be cool. I almost had Betsy do it for me since she was there after I left... but I forgot. It isn't the end of the world, but I kinda think it is neat to have a picture of the room number.

They do have a policy.... and somehow front desk doesn't know about it. AND silly me called front desk. Front desk could see they arrived at Pop at 1am..and knew that it should only take about an hour or so to deliver... but luggage services don't go out in the middle of the night. Now I know.

It was a nice moment together in the airport. (other than when Alex took the crayon from Zoe and colored a princesses face green)

As for the meds... I didn't have more. That was the problem.

And...as for friends here on Dis. Yes, I have definitely come to really appreciate everyone here. I have a IRL friend who I mentioned meeting friends in Disney to. She asked if they were real friends or just someone I met online. I had a brief moment of panic and feeling like I needed to justify etc. And then I kinda sorta lied.... but I said friends that I have known for a while. I am sure she knows I lied..after all this is a small town and where would I have come up with these "magical" friends if not but online.

Happy New Year! Not sure how I missed this for so long. But I'm here now!

Isn't it amazing how you always get a little more energy once you're off the plane at MCO?
