Psh. You're coming back to POP, because you want to have a mini-DIS meet, and staying at POP makes it so much easier to come visit me at AoA!

My DH and I have a fascination with taking pics of old motels and signage in general. He actually took the pic of the Sands while I stayed in the car. A lady walked out of a room and came over to him to ask him if he was interested in.... (well you can guess). He came scurrying back to the car pretty quickly after that.

What is CSR?

We did EMH nights back in October 2006. It was the last week and it wasn't too bad. I've done summer 3 times when I was younger and would not do that again. Way too crowded, long wait times and too hot for me.

Oh Tag Fairy

mnmrmustard, you're going the same days we are. Do you know what parks your doing on what days yet?

After the back and forth between the resorts (man, I feel like I'm watching a tennis match ), I'm guessing it's either AKL or WL.

I mean I come home from work, take off my shoes (and anything else constricting me) and I throw on some black, pocketed fleece pants and a tshirt. I'm trying to figure out a way to add some nice-looking, comfortable pants that will be "giving". What do you wear?
I say you should wear whatever makes you more comfortable. I doubt anyone else will care...and if they do, who cares? You'll probably never, ever see them again.

How red was his face when he came back to the car?

Too funny. On our honeymoon (will be 50 years next Feb) we drove from Buffalo to Miami without hotel reservations - kept driving around trying to find a motel. There were none available except a rather seedy looking one but they would only rent for 1-2 hours.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Sounds like a wonderful place for rest and relaxation.... I would hate to know what promos they offer there... I would just stick the room only discount (I bet they are not used to charging the daily rate as it is!)




So I kinda needed a pick me up today. You guys are doing an awesome job! Thanks!

Very red. I saw as she was approaching him. HE was so busy taking a pic, he didn't even notice till she was right in his face. I was chuckling pretty hard cuz I knew what was coming.
