Pop Century Expedition II

Don't miss the post on the previous page!


Continued-

We stayed in the room for a few minutes to decide what our plan was while waiting for my camera battery to charge because it was running low! Our feet were already starting to hurt, so we decided to go to the Hippy Dippy pool to put our feet in the water and decide what to do with our afternoon/evening. We decided to explore Pop, have an early dinner at Everything Pop, then go to some resorts that I have never been to before!

I didn’t bring my camera, but I had my phone on me, so we could take some pictures!





We saw it getting darker and darker, and all of a sudden, DOWNPOUR! People were running all around trying to get inside! It was hilarious! The people in the pool didn’t budge- I mean, hey, if you’re wet already, who cares about a little rain, right?? Well, we booked it over to Everything Pop to look around in the shop.





I tried on Duffy Mickey ears! <3



We were in there for a good 15-20 minutes before the rain decided to lighten up. We raced back to the room before it could pour again to get my camera and my rain jacket!

Pretty flowers!



After we (and the camera battery) were recharged and safely covered in plastic, we headed out on our mission.

First up: the 70s!











View of the Cars section from across the river.



The name of this TR should have been- I LOVE MY ZOOM!!!!!!!!







Ok, back to the 70s!





Continued in next post.....

Pop Century Expedition IV

Continued-

Childhood time!! The radical 90s!!

Break dancing time!!









Typing…

















Oh, floppies! Seems like such a long time ago!







I just LOVE this computer!!









I wanted to look like I was typing… it’s harder than it looks!



Haha, oh awkward passerbys! LOL!



I give up!!



It started to sprinkle again, so we decided to walk under the awnings of the buildings back to the room.

Love the pictures! Keep'em coming!

Boy, looking at the oversized Walkman brought back memories, and made me feel old considering how much of ancient relic it has become. I still remember my first Walkman.

I can't wait until Art of Animation is completely open! LITTLE MERMAID.

You know, I don't think that I've EVER seen any photos of that big computer before. How awesome is that! Love the news story the giant person was reading.

I'm not sure if you've mentioned this already or not Emma, but I was just wandering what kind of camera you use. Your pictures are GORGEOUS! and I definitely agree that your zoom is amazing

I love how you guys took the time to really explore the resorts, That's always one of my favorite parts of being at WDW.

Lol at the floppies comment...how they seem so ancient now.

I love the grounds of Pop and seeing your pictures has me extra excited to be there again in a month.

I'm loving your TR so far and can't wait to read more

Love the updates! Your pictures are all fantastic!

I can't get over the horrible looking sky though. But, at least y'all didn't let it stop y'all from getting out there & having fun! I love all the fun pictures of you & your mom.

Thank you! Oh, trust me- they're coming!!!

I know right?! I only had one Walkman since I was on the later end of the 90s, but my goodness it brings back memories!

I can't either!!!! I saw a walk through video of the Lion King section...OMG it's so cool!!!! I need to go back just to check it out!

Me neither! Most Pop photos are of the 60s, so that's why I really wanted to get over there! I also wanted to see the 50s, but sadly we didn't get over there!

I got a Canon SX40 HS 12.1MP for a Christmas present this past year, and I absolutely LOVE it!!! Thank you so much! I am no photographer, but this camera makes it so easy to pretend!

I really wanted to see all the details in the resorts because once our vacation gets going, it's always rush rush and hardly ever have time to just explore!

Thanks! Wow, I totally remember using them in elementary and middle school, but I've completely forgot about them until I saw the gigantic stack! They do seem ancient, huh??

Good! I'm glad! That's so exciting! A month will be here before you know it!!

My zoom is incredible! It's so cool to see the details up close!

Thank you!

I know! It was such a bummer! There was no way we were going to let a little rain interfere! (This will be a common theme throughout the entire trip!!! ) LOL! Thank you! We tend to get silly together!

Debby tried to get under our skin, but we wouldn't let her!

Jumping on board! Your pictures have me dying for a night at AoA, so absolutely adorable and I am drooling over your mom's burger. I love all the shots of you poising at POP, that would make a pretty fun montage! I agree, really great pictures, your excitement seems to come right through that camera lens, I love it!

Yeah, you all think disquettes are old, when I first started working in an office I had to use a computer that used PUNCH CARDS to read information - no joke! And I'm not that old; this was in 1986!

Yay! Welcome!

Oh, I would love to stay at AoA one day! But definitely take a trip to the food court if you have an open mealtime- it's worth it!!

Thank you! We get silly together! It was our first day in WDW, and I think it was starting to sink in that we were actually THERE!!

Joining in! Yay, I love mother/daughter trips! I'm going with one of my best friends in October, and I'm definitely gonna miss having my mom there!

I love Pop Century so much! I can't really choose a favorite section, but I do love the 60's - right in the middle of the action. I LOVE all your pics!! Ahh, now I miss it there so much. It was the first Disney Resort I ever stayed at, so it'll always be #1 in my heart.

AOA looks so amazing! I can't wait to go there. I've heard such rave reviews so far. How long did it take you to walk over from Pop?
