Great pics MEK! I love to enter WS as soon as they open because no one is there. You can take all the pics you want without "Bubba", "Gertrude" & that fat guy scratching his backside getting in the pic (hope no DISers ever caught THIS fat guy in their pics! )! It seems strange at first with so few people there but you get over it quickly!

Where did you go next? Hmmmmm......

I am impressed that you are that caught up while still on vacation. Hope you are having a great time.

I actually watched all the movies during our last trip so hopefully I have a few pics from Canada to share.

I actually didn't think I was going to like it, but I got brave and it actually turned out to be one of the better QS meals we had. So yeah! Tell Mark he can be my date there any time.

I think I found a new strategy. Go to the World showcase at 11am and work my way to the front of the park.

Speaking of Bubba and Gertrude - I almost named this TR "I ain't going to no Gaitlinsburg". You'll have to stay tuned for that one.........

Great recap of your visit to World Showcase. The food looked good, but for some reason I can never get past the name "slider". It just doesn't sound appetizing to me. They could call it just about anything else and I'd be fine with it.

For some reason I found it really annoying that that girl jumped right in there like that. I know it shouldn't have bothered me, but I was still like....What?????? Just let me get my picture of the CMs.

Now that you mention, slider is a pretty strange name for any small wrap or small sandwich. Who the heck ever thought of that?

I think the name slider started with White Castle hamburgers. A lot of grease & onions on tiny square burgers, tasty, but no longer on my plate!

I've never seen the movie in France, too busy doing other things.

Never eaten in Morocco, but drank there last year, horrible drink!

By day two we decided to split the QSMs, ordered one meal for breakfast & one for lunch. Just too much food for us to eat.

Interesting. I never knew where that term came frame since I have really only heard it used for the last 5 or 6 years. I figured it meant it was supposed to "slide" down your mouth.

You should stop and see it one of these trips. Its really got some wonderful pictures of the scenery.

Alcoholic or non-alcoholic? I had the Moroccan rita once, but I had so many adult beverages prior to that I can't even tell you whether it was good or bad.

I think that's a smart way to use the plan. I actually didn't feel stuffed on the QSDP like I do with some of the table service meals. I thought the portion size was pretty reasonable. Especially at WPE - definately portioned to prevent over eating ( at least my meal was).

After all these resort and DVC stays it will actually be interesting to see how an off site trip stacks up. For DIS Research and all that!
Purely for research purposes! but seriously, that's wonderful. I can't wait to hear all about it. I hope you'll do a TR.

You know we DISers will do anything for research purposes, even if it means making the sacrifice of going on an extra trip

I'm sure I will do some type of TR pertaining to it. As long as people read them, then I will write them.

AOA Pit Stop

Before I get on with my next update, I do have a some new vacation news. As you know, my brother and his family really want to go to Disney next summer. The pixie dust really worked its magic. They are serious enough about this trip that they are putting a deposit down on a condo. I actually found it through VRBO. Here's the link.

My brother invited Denny and I to stay with them. With the new premium AP deal and the offer for a free stay, you how can I say no? So, it looks like it won't be a year between my Disney trips after all. Looks like I will be going again in June. I am sure you are all shocked beyond belief!

My real motivation for this trip remains the kids. I think it helps to have other adults around to help at the parks and LJ needs a ride buddy. Denny and I are good at that!

Because this really is an unplanned trip, I am not even going to price out airfare. We are just going to make it a road trip. This will be a totally different type of trip for us, but it should be interesting. As I told Pam, I am doing this for Research Purposes....road trip, off site stay. I'm curious to see how it all stacks up.

So....On with the update.......

In my last update we had just left the World Showcase and had plugged our friend's address into the GPS. But I wasn't quite ready to leave the bubble. I needed a little bit more time. There was a new resort I wanted to visit. When I asked Denny if he would mind a quick stop at AoA, he said "OK".


Here we are pulling up to the guard gate. No need to use the Beaches N Cream excuse here.



Oh My. there's a dark cloud overhead



Talk about a sudden rain shower



My picture of the main entrance is blurry (probably because it was still drizzling), so I'm not going to post it. But this was on the outside of the building



This is the wall right behind the registration desk



Even their vest looks pretty cool



This overhead lighting is certainly a focal point in the lobby



The wall across from the registration desk is filled with many unique drawings and pictures













There is another wall covered with unique paintings with characters from a myriad of animation classics.











Next we ducked into the gift shop





From the gift shop we walked into the QS restaurant. I think this picture is of one of the lights on the ceiling. Teeka (Wendy) can correct me if I'm wrong, since she just got back from AoA.



Was this the floor? Help. So confused?



I know this was a cool picture on the way





Continued in Next Post.........

Continued from previous post.......

Stacy was on



Funny story - my brother confided that he really developed a crush on Stacy while he was staying back at the treehouse villa in the evenings watching Stacy TV. He is more than a little bummed that he won't be able to see her next summer.

I took a few pictures of the amazing menu








I wonder if the veggie burger is any good?



There were many more choices, but you get the idea.

More cool lights





Another picture?



Denny was very impressed with AoA. On several occasions he said, "they really did a great job with this".

I mention Denny's comments because he is not one to gush over anything Disney.

Now for a tour of the main pool area





































Continued in the Next Post.....

A Map of the resort we found down near the bridge over to POP.



Good Old Pop right across the bridge



Remember how many times you looked across the lake from Pop and saw those drab, empty buildings? This resort is such a welcomed change.





I would have liked to walk over to some of the other areas, but I was starting to feel the time crunch, so we headed back to the lobby.







Hmmm....An entrance.....



You know we had to go in and look around



I have to be honest, just from this quick view, the inside corridors just didn't do it for me. It looked kind of, hmmmmm, not sure what the word is that I am looking for....blah, maybe?

Picture on the inside wall



Back outside







Pool bar menu, anyone?










Back inside we noted the arcade





Ladies Room





Park hours sign



Public Internet



You can print your own boarding passes



And even check your flight status....Nice......

But I had to go back to the wall with all the cool paintings because I wasn't done taking pictures of them yet





You're not getting tired of them yet, are you?

















It was hard to tear myself away from AoA. But after a quick pit stop and a mug refill, we left the bubble.

Bye AoA



Hello downtown Orlando



Oh crap. Too much time in the bubble made me completely forget that it was Friday afternoon and approaching rush hour.



But I had this little beauty from Karamel Kuche to ease the pain of sitting in traffic



And this little baby (yeah, yeah, I know....I took a bite)



Another traffic shot (probably for FB)


Untitled by dvcmek1, on Flickr

The traffic was finally moving by the time we reached Sanford



I texted Nick to ask him if they had left yet. Nope. Still waiting for the train to depart.

I asked him to text my some pictures, but this is all I got. This is where you sleep if you have a coach seat on the auto train


Untitled by dvcmek1, on Flickr

Getting closer (33 miles)



Even closer



Woo Hoo!



We stopped at a liquor store so we could pick up some adult beverages to bring our friends.

I couldn't help it. I had to take this picture......


Untitled by dvcmek1, on Flickr

Although she doesn't look all that mad, does she?????

Entering our friend's development (after we drove past it once...oops)



And here we are.......



Up Next.....24 hours in Daytona and a wicked hangover.......

We saw the front entrance because ME stopped here first to drop people off. AoA looked pretty nice, but we didn't get to see the pool, wow that is very cool!

The drink I had in Morocco was some sort of Pina Colada, had alcohol, but was a very bad drink.

A pina colada in Morocco just SOUNDS like a bad idea all together, so I give you props for trying it. You are braver than me.
