Great wrap-up!

What an amazing trip you had. The magic was sure there through it all. I can't wait to see the pictures of your upcoming day at Epcot.

Aw Kathy, fabulous wrap up! What a fun group you all looked like, your photopass pics are awesome! I agree with your trip highlights too...that video of Mark at the resort when he sees Nicki is just the sweetest thing! Almost brought a tear to my eye. As I said before, I'm highly impressed that you were able to keep it a surprise! I am so bad at that, I always give it away and yes, I'm the kid who always peeked at their Christmas presents too.

I'm looking forward to your Epcot Flower & Garden pics coming up too. And of course your PTR as well. Girl, you are going to be busy busy busy soon! And oh ya, your Mark is getting married too!

Thanks for taking the time to write up this special TR too, I know I was horrible about keeping up with it but I so enjoyed reading it.

Kathy great wrap up! I know of no other TR where I get to see so many cool Disney hat - and even modeled on such adorable people! Your photopass photos were so cleverly posed and you have such awesome memories. Thank you so much for sharing it with all of us. You ROCK!

I'm looking forward to your PTR.

Coincidently, I have our girl trip in early December (5th-12th) booked before our August trip.

Pre Trip Report Started

I will post responses tomorrow (had a long day today writing out, stamping, labeling, stamping, stuffing 200 wedding invitations today).

But I did start my PTR and wanted to post it here:

Great wrap-up, I really enjoyed reading your TR.

Forgot to mention before that I bought those same PJs except in the Mickey version!

Off to check out your new PTR....

It is always sad when a trip comes to an end, but those have to be some of the saddest pics I think I have ever seen from your "leaving" day!!! (oh wait, that probably didn't sound quite right.........)

Six days without Starbucks??? You???

The PTR title is being worked on and I hope to start that on Sunday or Monday...Mary and I are in touch.

And I'll let you all in on a little secret. I cancelled our reservation at POP. I just couldn't bring myself to stay at a value because I just don't care for them (sorry to those who love them....they just aren't me). I booked us a room at the Dolphin. It was only $90 more and it just makes more sense since we are dining at Yachstman on Sunday night...we can walk there and enjoy the Boardwalk a little and then we will drive to Boma in the morning for our 7:30 ADR and then drive back to the Dolphin and use the back door for Epcot.

But I'm not telling Mark until we get there.

Goodnight all.
Sorry to hear about Cookie!

Nice upgrade to the Dolphin, and don't forget it is also a "short" walk to DHS and your beloved ToT!

Loved the wrap up! Hard to capture all of the highs and lows of a trip so succinctly, but you did a pretty good job! I saw quite a few favorite pics from your trip too! Wish one or two of my other favorites had been in your wrap up, but I'm sure others who read along could say the same thing!

I enjoyed getting to tag along on this TR with you also!

Great pictures, and I'm glad the surprise was such a huge success. I'm sorry we didn't get to meet up, but at least we all had a great time!

What a wonderful wrap up…. Love seeing all your favorite pictures – they are all great…there’s something about the Epcot photo …taking looking at camera and then the next with your backs to the camera that I really like

Sorry about your sweet Cookie, hopefully she is feeling better after the weekend.

Congrats on your latest change to the Dolphin ...… you are right, Mark may never quite know 100% what's up after this past trip! And it does make perfect sense to switch to the Dolphin…. Lots of pluses…proximity to the Yachtsmen dinner and of course F&G…

Check out the Grooviest FAQ thread here: POP Century FAQ Thread

TY Kook!
