HI there New reader here and I am really enjoying the report so far. Your girls are adorable. I can't wait until I have kids so I can take them to Disney World. Looking forward to pictures of AOA -Amanda

Woot woot! Shopping pictures already!
Oh dear I am gonna be in shopping trouble in October!

I'm sorry you had so much trouble with your room! What a nightmare! I'm glad they were able to fix everything. Nice of the manager to apologize personally as well. I'm glad you liked your new location!

That's cute how you got your title. Can't wait to see the pictures. Ds#2 wants to go for his birthday in March and stay at the new hotel. Have to see with dh new job within the Coast Guard. He travels a lot more.

I'm here! Actually, I've been following since Day One, but I think my smartphone ate my first post!

50s & connecting! Nice! What a good manager to personally apologize, too. Glad to see that the girls got to swim before the days of drenching.

Good timing with those shopping pics. I just ordered some Disney gifts for two sweet nieces (same ages as your two sweeties) and only threw in one little thing for me. Phew! If I'd seen your pics first, I'd have put a much bigger dent in the wallet. Virtual shopping, fortunately, is great fun and so much cheaper.

Ok, ready for that stroll to AoA.

Ugh to the smoke smell in the room -- glad they were able to switch you!

The 50s section is a much better section than the 80s, especially over-looking the lake. Looking forward to seeing your next pictures; A of A looks amazing.

Yay for arrival day and double yay for swimming on arrival day!!!!! POP question--I have 3 adults. I was booked at POP for just DH and I, but my brother is coming so I switched to CSR for the queen beds. I reallllllly want to stay at POP. Would an air mattress or rollaway bed just be awful in the room? Not sure DH and I can share a double bed, but we might be so Disney tired, that it would be okay. It's almost the same price to get 2 rooms at POP as 1 room at CSR, so I might end up doing that. Sorry, my DH is tired of hearing this debate so I thought I would ask the POP experts.

Hi, I'm finally here....what a great title! Still laughing.... Brooklynn is a hoot!

I don't know what it is but I love arrival pics!
The girls are so cute with their suitcases all ready to go. I like the new zebra print bags!

So much fun to see all of your pics from Magical Express to the POP pool.
Glad to see the girls got a swim in before the rain.

Oh my, I have a shopping bag/list that is full of new Disney bags after joining along for our first look at the merchandise!
I luv the Minnie & pink roses bag. I almost bought that white bag with the red & black hearts on the last trip.
I spotted a matching wallet to the handbag I picked up in May.
Lexi will definitely want the Perry ears. Can't wait t show her when she gets back.
Hmmm...there are other things too, I'll have to go back and write them down.

Thank you so much for including a pic of the fridge in the room. I was wondering where it would be.

I'm happy that Disney worked their magic and got you a better room and it was in the very fun 50's section!!!

Will we get classroom pics again this year? I can't believe it's already time for you to get back.
Where did the summer go?

I have some news....I booked a September trip!!!
My boss was the one who actually convinced me to go.
Although I didn't need that much of a push.
We will be at ASMu. Five park days and we will go to MNSSHP on one of the nights.
I was unsuccessful getting any of our favorite ADR's this time.
Everything was booked. I did get Tony's for lunch and a Boma bkfst.

I wish I could have been able to go in October when you are there.
(October to December is our busiest time of the year.)

I'm so glad to be here for your newest TR! You bring so much joy into my life, I can't thank you enough!

I have put a twin air mattress in the room when my son came on our trips.

We put it by the door. Just leaned it up against the wall during the day.

Of course, you have got to stay at POP!!! It's AWESOME!!!

It is our favorite.

Thanks!! I have heard it can be done, but you are the first that I have heard from that has actually done it. Congrats on your September trip! So jealous of all your tickers.

Shopping pictures right away! Love that. lol.
I bought the bag that matched that mickey head/butterflies/flowers wristlet in the bags photo. It was great for rainy days as it is coated in plastic. Pretty colors too. Might have to get the wristlet to match in 2 weeks! I can hardly wait to post this so I can see our countdown! Its only 5 nights but its 5 Disney nights!

Love the shopping pictures. Creighton is sitting here next to me listing off everything in your pictures. He is telling me that he wants to go to Disney World and ride the bus.

And now he wants to make you a picture with the smilies.
