So my sister decided that she and her family will not be coming in March.

But I'm still going! It will be sad to not have them, as I was looking forward to seeing my nieces' faces light up when they see the castle etc, but oh well.

I will stick with my plan of AoA for one night and Pop Century for the rest of the trip. I might stick around AoA that first morning so I can check out the pool and then take a shower before my lunch ADR at Les Chefs de France. I thought the other day that it will be my only chance to see the pool, as it will be locked up to me when I'm at Pop.

I will arrive on a Saturday, take the DME bus to AoA and check in. I will try to pack light and just have my camera bag, so I won't have anything to bring to my room. I'll probably want something to eat, since I'll have left home at about 8:20 that morning (going to 8:30 am mass before leaving for Halifax right after) and it will be about 12 hours later by then. Something to eat at AoA and then walk around taking pictures on my way to my room. Wander the resort, take many resort area pictures, take many, MANY, pictures of the room too!!!

The next morning, breakfast at the resort, and hopefully pool time if it's nice enough. Then more daytime pictures after my shower and a walk over to Pop. I don't mind lugging my suitcase with me.



It's been a while since I've stayed there, but I spent both my March Break trips at Pop, so it's kind of fitting to be there again!





I can't wait to get many more pictures, and get a nice blue sky in them too!

I am looking forward to seeing all the palm trees too.



I got a Standard Room this time, having gotten preferred both other times, and every other time I've stayed at a value. I don't think I need it now. I wanted it the other times but now I know what walking at Disney is like, and I don't mind it at all. I didn't even put in a room request. I might later ask for 50s section, upper floor. I'm not sure though.



This is the entrance to AoA. I walked the bridge once on a trip to Pop for lunch.

Part 12: Walking right down the middle of Main Street, USA.

I took the monorail to MK. You know the feeling when you walk in knowing that when you leave, you wonít be back for a long time? That was my feeling!

The salad was decent.

Too bad about your sister and fam But it's Disney, you'll still have a great time!
AoA for a night and then Pop, sounds a little like what I might do next trip. I do love Pop!

Love your MK pictures, really makes me wish I was there! I also love the sidewalk artists, so amazing what they can do with a little water.
Sunshine tree! I have a picture of myself and my dad from 22 years ago sitting there. I meant to get some more pictures of the place last year and forgot. Next time!

I agree about me still having a great time... only now I probably won't be going. I had to get some work done on my car and I need to make a choice. Icky. But I will go in the summer, for longer and then it's okay! I'm on hold for Westjet right now. Depends on them I guess...

You should really take a picture of you and your dad in the same place. I love those types of pictures.

Don't be too anxious! I am trying to cancel. But I will reschedule and go in the summer. My dream is some time at DL and then over to WDW. Wouldn't that be lovely?

That would be a great trip! We are going to DL again this June (went last Aug after going to WDW the past two summers.) I really like how everything is so compact and close at DL....leave the hotel, walk a few minutes and you're there. Plus not nearly as much walking as at WDW...great with little kiddos!

I know! I loved that too! I had a Disneyview room, so that was nice too. Blanched watched fireworks from her BED! I loved DL, and I love WDW. That's why I want to do both! I don't know if I can, really, but I want to try. And I'm sure I can get a cheap flight between LAX and MCO in comparison to what we pay in Canada. It's very pricey to fly down, so I'd basically be saving two one way flights.

Part 13: More MK

I wanted to get back and try a citrus swirl, so I took a picture to remind me! I did eventually get back, but I forgot to take a picture. Oops.


MK 299 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


MK 300 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Where would I go next?


MK 301 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


MK 302 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

The boat was really crowded, so I didnít take many picturesÖ but I had to get a few of Captain Jack at the end!


MK 303 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


MK 305 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


MK 306 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I decided to ride the Liberty Belle Riverboat. I had never done it before, so I figured now would be the time!


MK 307 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I donít know how long we had to wait, but I must have just missed the boat. I was the 2nd person up in the waiting area.


MK 308 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


MK 309 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


MK 310 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


MK 311 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


MK 312 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I havenít been across on Tom Sawyer Island since my trip in 2009, I think. I guess itís time to go over again on my next trip.


MK 313 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


MK 314 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


MK 315 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I was loving the look of the colors with the setting sun.


MK 316 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I had never seen any little flag ceremonies before.


MK 317 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


MK 318 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I didnít want him to think I was stalking him so I looked away to get more setting sun picturesÖ


MK 320 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


MK 321 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

And then turned back to get the other captain folding the flag.


MK 322 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

Part 14: Liberty Belle Riverboat


MK 326 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


MK 328 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr


MK 329 by disneyfreak0306, on Flickr

I remember standing next to a really sweet family and chatting with them while we waited for the boat, then I stood next to them on the boat. It was cute because one of the two girls kept trying to scare the other one. They were totally making me laugh. I had such a great time chatting with them. They had driven from Louisiana I think it was, and it was their first visit. The adults were asking me questions about various rides and things. I hope they had a great trip!
