Wow, that view to the left is mighty fine! I would take it, whether I had to crane my neck to view it or not!

What a great upgrade - unbelievable. It also always surprises me how BIG those deluxe rooms look compared to the values. Last October I stayed at Pop for two nights with my mom and then surprised her with a change to the CR - it was like leaving a closet and moving into a house! I'm totally OK with the values (contemplating one night at AoA before my BC stay in September right now), but the deluxes seem to just have so much more room. Looking at your picture, it looks like you could definitely do more than four people in there for awhile and be ok.

That is so funny that your son had to go to the gym first! That will be me in September! I won't run while I'm on vacation, but I WILL need to lift weights a couple of times so I'm very interested in the gym. I hope you got some pics.
Hi Zehn. Yes that is how we feel about POFQ also. The boys really love it there. We like POR also but it is huge compared to POFQ. I like POR in that it has a sit down restaurant & the food court has more choices. I like them both. Oh I am anxious for AoA reports.

Yes Cody had to take a look at the gym & see what the equipment was like.

And you got a daybed! We didn't, but the boys like getting to take turns sleeping with mom & dad when we stay in a regular sized hotel room. Everyone gets their own bed when we are in the villas, but in a regular room, Tim & I each sleep with one of the boys. They like to switch each night.

I think it's so funny that our room numbers were so similar!
Yes the day bed worked out great!!

I kept getting our room numbers mixed up!! I kept wanting to use your rooom #.

Well I hope all of you had a wonderful Mothers Day. I had a GREAT weekend. We had beautiful weather here in NH & yesterday got all of our patio furniture out, went shopping for hanging plants & I watched a bird make a nest in one of our birdhouses. I am going to try & post a video. Well I did not realize it takes FOREVER to download a 50 second video into Photo bucket. I will post pics instead..







He worked hard all weekend making the nest. We get such a kick out of watching them.

I also bought a cute Disney item for my garden this week



Isn't it cute???

Last night the 4 of us went to the movies & saw the Avengers. It was awesome!!!! Ryan said it was probably the best movie he has ever seen. It did not seem like 2 hrs & 22 min. It went by so fast so I guess it was that good!!

Now to continue on with the TR..

We left off that we were headed to MK but took a short detour first.

We checked out the lounge first of all



Yum for sweedish fish & choc. covered pretzels



DH getting a Mocha



Yummy chips & dip



Then we headed downstairs to ..............



Yes the gym!! I took this one picture & then headed to......





AHHHH beautiful SAB!! I have many more where those came from. Then we went by



Once we checked out that area we headed out the front doors to the bus stop & got to MK around 12:15. The first pick I took there was







Ah we had arrived







We got a photopass card as we were sharing a photopass that Amy (DisMomAmy) organized. The CM was nice enough to take a photo with my camera as well.



DS's



Continued In Next Post

My guys were headed toward one area but I had to stop to take these pics. They would need to get used to this throughout the trip.









We headed to Space Mtn. but it was a 40 min. wait so we got FP's & headed to one of Ryan & Cody's favorite-Mike's Laugh Floor. No wait.









After Mike's we got a snack. DH, Cody & I got a cream cheese pretzel. One of DH's favorites. I took a bite before remembering to take a pic



Ryan got an ice cream. I wanted to go check out my favorite ride Splash. Some pics I took along the walk over.



There was a show going on









Well I am going to end it here for tonight.

Coming up:

Did we ride Splash??

What broke down as we approached the ride???

Where do we eat dinner???

Hi Tina. Isn't BC wonderful?? One of the many things I miss about it is the smell. I forgot what they said it was. It is a combination of 2 things. I need to go back to the boards & find out.

The weather was great this weekend. The next few days are not looking too hot.

Also, that picture of the castle show (right before the pic of the Adventureland sign), with the two women looking very happy while dancing, is cracking me up! WOW, they love their jobs!

Yes the monitoring of the FP times really does put a kink in the plans. We did not ride nearly as much as we usually do.

Yeah one picture & I was outta there! Cody on the other hand spent approx. 2 hrs in there every afternoon.

I didn't even notice the women in the show. I had to go back & look. Yes they do look like they enjoy their jobs. I most certainly do not look like that when I am working.

I noticed this too. And in the parade we saw I kept commenting on how hard it must be to keep a smile that big on your face while you are singing, dancing, and moving along with the parade! All those little things are what makes Disney, Disney. They sure don't smile like that in the parades here at home
