    Alright....so here goes

    I got to Dawn's house about 4p we went to a cute little Mexican restaurant close to her house and then hit the road. :drive: We decided to eat first b/c then we would miss most of Atlanta's rush hour traffic and it worked it was great. We zoomed through town and were on our way.....

    We got to our ok but definitely not Disney hotel room about 12:30am

    But we didn't care we were TIRED!!! [​IMG] It was cheap and a good place just to rest our heads before a fun time in the World!!

    Here's a pic we snapped on our way out the parking lot
    [​IMG]
    Wet and Wild is in their backdoor.

    We saw a Disney cruise line bus and took a pics for those of us that want to go on the cruise
    [​IMG]
    maybe I will be on this bus one day!

    And after our long 4-5 mile ride.....
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    WE'RE HERE!!!! :yay: :jumping1: :yay:

    Now one of my main complaints about Disney property. The signs! :mad: I do not think they do a very good job getting you to where you need to be. Maybe it's just Pop but it is NOT listed until the very last minute! If you don't really know what end it's on your going to be looking for awhile

    But we (really Dawn) did a good job.....
    [​IMG]

    Good Mojo (I'm ripping this from Jordan) in the check out line
    [​IMG]

    We had a few people in front of us but we did the hustle while we were waiting
    [​IMG]

    I think we checked in around 10:30a and our room was READY!!! :thumbsup2

    We were both hungry so we headed to the food court to eat an early lunch.

    Thanks to Dawn we have food porn pics. I told her I would never remember to do it if it were up to me!
    She had a hamburger and fries and I had a cheese steak wrap with (my fave::yes:: ) FRIES!!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    We both got fruit for a snack/dessert put them in the fridge to eat later in the week and never did :rolleyes: Oh also the fruit juices are for breakfast later in the week. We both got mugs so we had coke to drink :upsidedow

    Here's some pics of our READY room!! We were in the 90's section. Not where we had requested and I don't even think they had our request actually but it was good. We are both 90's girls. I have never been to Pop. I LOVE IT!! It's a great value resort and might just be the next place I stay again!

    I agree with you, POP was not well marked at all on the road signs. I just always followed the signs for Hollywood Studios or Downtown Disney depending on what direction I was coming from.

    Picked up fast passes and headed in the line to wait. I think it was only about a 30min wait. Not bad for a brand new and AWESOME ride!!!

    One of my fave games as a child...Chutes and Ladders
    [​IMG]

    Not only is the ride fun the line is too. I love the HUGE crayons
    [​IMG]

    and Mr Potato head
    [​IMG]

    How fun does this look :3dglasses
    [​IMG]

    I was so sad....our computers didn't work to compute our scores
    [​IMG]

    But I took this picture while waiting and I know one of these scores are mine! :rotfl:
    [​IMG]

    So that means I beat Dawn :laughing:

    Next we went to One Man's Dream. If I've done this before it's been a LOOOOONG time ago!

    All the models were so cool!

    Hurrah, you've started!

    Great photo of the streetmosphere at DHS! I'm so disappointed I wasn't able to ride the Toy Story ride while I was there. I guess I need to plan another trip back.

    A tree of my very own? Aw, shucks! Thanks, man!
    This was my last check-in of the evening, and I get a tree all of my own. Maybe now I will go to sleep and dream of sitting under a palm tree at Pop.... nightie-night!

    P.S. I'm glad you liked Pop Century. That Nineties picture shows all those movies my kids watched a million times over.

    We're off to a good start! I guess Dawn's still sleeping, which is good, since we don't want her falling asleep in the middle of a deposition!

    Agree I figured this out pretty quickly. I'm just glad I'm not the only one....makes me feel like I'm not quite as crazy :laughing:

    MOST DEFINITELY!!! :3dglasses I would be worth it!!

    Thanks! :cheer2:

    Sweet dreams I'm not far behind :goodvibes

    I did really enjoy it!! I think Matt and I might stay there when we go back unless I can swing a Wilderness Lodge (b/c it will be at christmas) stay :love: or DVC points!

    Definitely not! I slept 11-12 hours last night :rotfl:

    Thanks and keep watching b/c 'packed' is a light word we ran like CRAZY girls!! pirate: pirate:

    Great start. I agree with the signs too. When we drove down there a couple of years ago we had a hard time leaving :lmao: which could of have been a good thing. We actually were going to DTD and then home but had a found it difficult for directions to DTD from POR but we did and did some nice shopping. Can't wait for more.

    WooHoo - you started!:banana:

    First of all - Wet n' Wild? That bought back memories! We went there back in the 70s when I travelled to Orlando with my basketball team for tournaments. Of course, these days, I don't ever set foot off of Disney property!:laughing:

    Room ready early; short wait for TSM - you guys are DEFINITELY starting off with some good mojo!
