Love the nighttime pic of the entrance sign; I don't think I've seen one before. Jealous of your Jungle Book room; I got stuck in Roger Rabbit when we stayed there. Coke + Castle =

We did get a fantastic room location at Pop Century. It was nice....I'm usually tucked away in some far corner of whatever resort I'm staying in.

We've never stayed at any of the value resorts and I'm surprised how drab they are. Are they all like that!?

I'm in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I loved the photo of the Blue Angel! My DH would have excused the drive if he got to see her.

Your mug made me chuckle, I have that one too! Marisa and I use our mugs whenever we are missing Disney and that is a lot lately.

When I stayed at Pop in 2010 it was not that drab. They must have made over the rooms between then and now.

I imagined them to be just the opposite with the fun themes they have!

I prefered the room I had at All Star Sports in 2010. It had a little more color, but it wasn't overwhelming.









The photos I've seen of the recently updated rooms at All Star Movies show a really cute walpaper border looking like a film strip of the movies the resort showcases. We actually were originally booked at All Star Movies for the first two nights of this trip, but a discount code came out and Pop ended up being cheaper, so we switched.

There was at least one other rest stop along the interstate in Florida that had a Blue Angel on display. I think their home is in Pensacola.

I love my Disney mugs! I use one every morning for my coffee!

I was just in Philadelphia at the end of March for a work trip. I didn't get to see much of the city aside from the inside of the sprawling convention center. I ate Dunkin Donuts every day.

Isn't it crazy? They are adequate, but not much more than that. They are great for people who spend the majority of their days in the parks and just use the resort as a place to sleep but still want to take advantage of the on-site Disney perks.

A friend and I laugh about the themes of the Values and how they present them compared to the immersive theming of the moderate and deluxe level resorts. For example....if the Polynesian was a Value resort, it would be the standard T-buildings with giant metal hibiscus flowers welded to the sides. A 40 foot tiki torch would be the icon of one building and a giant surf board would identify another. A giant flowery lei would be hanging from the ceiling in the food court....



WP2...Anybody want to guess where we went our first morning? (I'm working on the update now!)

Loving the report!!! I've only stayed at POP once for one night before we checked into AKL. I do remember the food court/gift shop to be very overwhelming! Nice that they have the refrigerators though! Can't wait to hear more!!!!

As for where Piglet is, see below....

A couple times throughout the trip, I got into random conversations with people. Anytime Pop came up, that seemed to be the consensus! Crazy food court!

We went to Fantasia Gardens Mini-Golf!



We slept in a bit this day, which was nice. I dont remember what time we got up, but it was late enough that housekeeping was knocking at our door before we had left for the morning.

We went to Everything Pop and I had a bagel with chocolate milk. My DH didnt eat anything because it was already 10:30 by this point, so it wouldnt be too long before we ate lunch.

Wheres Piglet? 3&.Where did we eat lunch this day?
