    Deluxe Dining Plan
    May 31-June 1--POP Century
    June 1-6--Coronado Springs

    After traveling 8 hours, we were so happy to get to POP Century that day. We got there to find that the barricades for the bridge from POP to AoA had been dropped!

    I think AoA looks so cute. It makes the Poly girl want to try something new!

    creativeamanda...as everyone else, I really enjoyed the pictures.

    One question: everything looks so deserted! These are from June? Are the crowds way down this year?

    Joining in! popcorn::

    Loving all the pictures! AoA looks so cute. I would like to try it out but can't really justify the cost of a suite for our family of 3. And my son has already told me he won't stay in a Little Mermaid room. :sad2:

    Can't wait to see more! :goodvibes

    The week following Memorial Day is historically lower in crowds than the next week. As the month goes along, it picks up more. Remember, many of the Southern schools get out sooner than other schools because they start in August.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I see the issue there. My son would want to do the Little Mermaid, either.

    :welcome: Thanks for joining in!

    Thanks, Hallie!

    Thanks! Hope you enjoy!
