I picked up two postcards that I wanted to go ahead and get in the mail immediately. One was for a friend's little girl who had been to Disney World a few weeks earlier. One was Ty's first official Disney postcard. (For those of you just joining, Ty is the newly adopted son of our cousin, Michelle.)

Not too busy in the food court right now.

Next time, we take a walk across the bridge to check out Art of Animation Resort.

Great arrivals pictures! Sorry about the room snafu. We were given a room that reeked of smoke once at the Hilton. We insisted it be changed too.

Wow the pool looks like the place to be, it looks so empty. And thanks so much for taking us shopping once again. So much to see and want.

My shopping bag is ready, and I see several things I would like to put in it!

The girls look like they are enjoying the pool!

Glad they were able to get you new rooms, the smell of smoke for 13 days would be enough to ruin your stay!

The snafu free departure resulted in a snafu filled checking.

Glad they got it all straightened out and I hope they billed the previous occupant for the smelly room.

Glad the girls got their swim in and I can see the clouds building.... uh oh

Gotta love those heavenly gates to welcome you to Disney! Caribbean Beach does look like a truly beautiful resort, how I wish to stay there someday, Walt's vision fully fulfilled as mentioned in the great video. Pop looks as amazing as ever. Sorry to hear about your little room debacle, at least you can always rely on Disney's efficiency and you got such a great view of AoA! It looks absolutely amazing over there Love those pictures of Brooklynn and Bella swimming in the quiet pool, a shame the clouds had to close in on you guys

Ooooo... time for some shopping! I definitely have my eye on those pins, especially the Brave ones. The Perry and Phineas & Ferb merchandise also looks great! The Perry/Mickey ears are beckoning to me. Seriously, why can't I just be in Disney RIGHT NOW?! Great post cards by the way! :D

Can't wait to read about your little walk over to AoA, so excited to see that resort in all of its new glory, eeeepppp!!!

I'm finally here.

Jill looks absolutely adorable. Sophie makes a cute bump.

Please tell Brooklynn and Bella to stop growing up. They are getting so big.

I am so ready for this trip report. I need my Disney fix.

It's a good thing I am shopping via your photos because I would have some full bags. There are so many things my kids would go nuts for!

Sorry about the double whammy room situation, but glad to hear it was rectified quickly!

Glad they got your rooms fixed up! One thing I can never figure out is how it gets to a point that a guest checks into a room that smells strongly of smoke? I mean can't housekeeping smell it when they clean the room? Maybe we just have super sensitive noses

I love going virtual shopping with you MeMom, thanks!!

That is frustrating, because we ALWAYS request that, and I don't know how that can just vanish in the computer system. It was okay, though, and we made our way up to the new rooms they gave us in the 80's.
I always request a specific section for clients and almost always they don't get the section requested, and are usually told the request isn't indicated. Disney's computer system leaves a lot to be desired. I always tell them if they don't like their room location, to politely ask if there is something else available. 9 times out of 10 there is or at least there will be later that day.

Glad you guys got a non-stinky room!

I love Perry! Actually the entire Phineas & Ferb show has really grown on me. It's very witty, with lots of jokes that only adults would get - not dirty, just kinda quirky adult humor.

Yay, you've arrived! Glad to hear they took care of the room situations right away!
I love your shopping pictures - it always makes me smile, and then wish that I were there to buy some goodies!! It's good I'm not - I'll spend enough in October anyway!

Memom, thanks for the welcome

Always enjoy your pics, originally I started reading because of a title...kept on because of the pics and conversation.

This Thanksgiving trip Brendan (19) will be arriving from school a day ahead of us, we picked POP for him to stay based on your reports. Thanks for giving me such a feel for the place.

Good luck getting that room ready

I'm so excited, as in September we will be staying at POP for the first time!! Your pictures are so much fun, I almost feel like I'm there!!

Can't help it, but when I saw the title of your report, all I could think of was.....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DrOq...:lmao::rotfl2:

Don't mind me please. I worked all night last night and only slept a couple of hours.

Looking forward to more!!!

DH and I are staying at POP with his family in Jan., so I love all the pictures. I saw things at Everything Pop that are tempting me.

We have requested a king room with a tub, because one time that put us in a king with the roll in shower. On my conformation e-mail it just reads a tub requested. I think I need to call them back.

I love the 50's section that faces the lake.

for arrival and check-in. Glad you got the room problems straightened out and you got your connecting-smoke free-rooms!

Enjoyed the virtual shopping. It was much cheaper on my wallet!

I love Pop so much. Sigh.

I don't trade pins, but I buy at least one for myself each trip...and I saw several in your pics that I liked! Might be tough to choose next trip.

Great update!
