I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

Hoping our room is ready when we arrive via ME around 1230ish! But more so, anyone have success with late checkout?? When we leave may 22, our flight isn't til 745pm. I'm guessing ME around 430? Hoping we can have our room for a few hours extra!!!
Your chances are better for a late check out if you request it at check in.good luck have a great trip..

I just convinced my wife to take a half day! Yay! The original plan was to take her and pick her up from work, then head to POP on the 24th friday.. She said the earliest she could have got off work would be 3:20ish, then grab our stuff from our house and head 2 hrs to POP, potentially arriving at POP before 7. I factor rush hour traffic when driving after she gets off work. I wonder if I should test my luck and ask her to take it off. She's a teacher so I'm sure she has some personal days since she never uses them!

Our first day/night is never a park day. Since our WDW trips are usually identical, we usually arrive late afternoon and head to DTD to hangout/dinner. It'd be nice to arrive during early afternoon. For others that also don't do a park when arriving, what are your traditions that you do the first day at disney?

I live 3 hours away in georgia and my dad gave me a ticket for one day at disney for my birthday. Best believe im taking advantage of it. A quick 2 night weekend for my birthday. Ill be 27 on the 26th. I wil be at pop with my 3 year old and my best friend. This is the shortest trip I have ever taking the 24th to 26th but i am so happy. we decided to use our one day at the magic kingdom on Saturday. I was going to try the 24 hour event but I will not do that to the DS and hearing about the crowds on leap day, I have a feeling it will be extra crowded being memorial day weekend. I haven't been to pop in a while. I love it but i am wondering, did they really stop having the cheese steak wraps. They are not on allears menu and I loved those things.

We are here now and just realized they don't have the Moms night out anymore! Don't know how I missed that news, but wow! We have sampled a few items and sad to say we are sticking to eating in the parks. It's nice that they want healthy options, but when I'm on vacation, I want to eat whatever I want lol! I can eat healthy at home. Moms night out was a big reason we stayed here, but it looks like we will be looking for something new.

Yes, I agree!!
In some ways that new Mickey Check sucks! It has kept some great options off of the new menus for silly reasons IMHO. I understand about offering healthy options but do that have to get rid of ALL of the old CLASSICS?? It's a real bummer!!

Agree with you both...why not keep some of oldies but goodies, right? Offer healthier options sure, but don't eliminate the classics -- give people the option... these classics are what make POP different from say another food court and IMO Disney should not take all the individuality away from each resort... whether it be the food menu.. or say frozen coke machine, goofy POP jets...
