I thought of you this weekend because we went to a fair & saw a sign for an upcoming Irish festival. I saw the word feis and said 'Oh they're going to have Irish dancers!' Kris asked how do you know and I said because my friend Meghan from DIS goes to feis all the time lol.

Oh no Leaving is the worst part of any Disney trip! That is pretty awesome that they took you in a golf cart!

Gorgeous pictures of the resort! Thank you for your report on POFQ. I enjoy when people do that at the end of a TR. It helps me see the positive and negatives that stand out for each resort. I think POFQ is high on our list for moderates to try. I like that everyone says it's smaller than the other moderate resorts!

So cute that Cole was try to go back to your room!

That key situation totally sounds like something I would do.

Thank you so much for sharing your trip! I really enjoyed it! I would love to hear about your conference trip.

I'm so glad you finished your TR! I loved reading about your family's trip-- I'm glad you had such a nice time. POFQ is really nice! I love that whole complex (including POR).

I can't wait to read about your conference!

That is awesome! So glad I can educate everyone on what a feis is...don't forget....it's pronounced FESH! We actually have one this Saturday. It's the one run by our school, so I have to volunteer. I actually like working one of the stages...it's fun to interact with all the kids.

Leaving is always the worst! It is so sad...so much time spent planning out your trip and it's over in a flash. The golf cart ride was fun!

I like reading reviews of the resorts too. I like hearing honest opinions! POFQ is so beautiful and I can't say enough about it.

See, we've brainwashed him already! It was awesome that he didn't want to leave either. I think he thought we lived there now!

UGH! The key mishap was the worst. At that point, I just wanted to be home and get ready for the next day.

You're welcome! Thank you so much for reading!!! I am going to take as many pictures as possible while at my conference. I have never traveled alone like this before, so I'm excited and nervous.

Me too! It feels like our trip is finally complete. Only took me 11 months to finish!

I love, love, love POFQ! I always recommend it to my clients.

I can't wait for the EarMarked Conference...yummy Disney food, great presenters, and some park time. Yay!

I'm sad that the TR is ending, but SO HAPPY our next trip is close!!

I don't know how people survive without Chick-fil-a. I'm glad you got some before the trip home.

I can't believe that story about the key! That sounds like us! And I don't have a key to our garage door but Brandon does, so this could seriously happen. Hmmm...maybe we need to think about this!

We dropped a zillion dollars on dance shoes the other day, and it started back yesterday. The girls didn't want to take off their ghillies in the store! They quit tap this year and are just focusing on ballet and Irish, which I think is a good choice.

NEXT MONTH!!

I kind of sped through my updates, but I just wanted to finish it! It was such a wonderful trip (after the awful afternoon of rain at AK our first day.

I have now had Chik-Fil-A twice...once at MCO and again in NJ in May. I highly doubt they will open one here in Buffalo.

I knew we were going to have issues with the house key, but I didn't feel like having an argument on the way to the airport!

I am in the process of getting Madison new Irish dance shoes. We have a used shoe bin that one of the moms keeps track of. We tried some on yesterday and managed to find used chillies for $30 (she wears split sole black bottoms that are normally $65). No luck on used hard shoes right now and I really don't want to buy new ones (range from $95-150). They are terrible to break in as well. Madison will just have to deal with it for her competition on Saturday!

So sad your trip (report) has come to an end!

That's so awesome you guys were FotD at GG!! How special! I love seeing Cole's face light up with the characters! It's so precious!

POFQ looks amazing! I get so attached to resorts...they just end up feeling so homey!

I'm sad too...it feels like our trip wasn't that long ago, but it was. Cole likes to play with Tony's phone and he always pulls up the videos from the trip.

We never get picked for stuff like that so it was awesome! Cole really did love every character. I wish he could have met some face characters too.

I get very attached to my resorts. We loved Pop but POFQ was so cozy and quiet. Big change from Pop!
