When I last left off (at the beginning of August ), I had eaten my Pop waffle for breakfast and then we had pulled out of the resort at 7:30am. We had an ambitious goal of packing up, leaving one resort, driving to another, checking in, and taking Disney transit to make rope drop at the Magic Kingdom. I have to hear the song. You know the one. Good morning, good MORning! It's great to stay up late! Good morning, good MORning to YOU! and you and you and you.... So anyways, I am SO EXCITED and I just want to get to the parks! We made sure to use Google maps on my iPhone this time so we could go the shortest route and not take the Grand Tour of WDW roads at 35 miles per hour. We hit every red light possible, but then we saw the sign for Riverside and we thought we were home clear! NOT! Leave it to me to get stuck behind the street sweeper! Since we didn't yet have our room keys, we had to speak to the guard and we couldn't use the automated gate in the other lane. We made it into the parking lot, found a nice spot, and went inside. The whole atmosphere of this resort is so much more relaxing than Pop. I like Pop for what it is, but I FAR prefer the moderates, and I do believe I have found a new favorite resort! The theme throughout all of Walt Disney World has been "Let the Memories Begin!" I really liked this theme, and I definitely needed a photo of the sign as we entered the resort! The lobby was under renovation while we were there, and you can see they are in various stages of painting. I never actually saw them doing any work, but I did see progress throughout the week, so the workers must be nocturnal. I had requested a mansion room, and I was hoping for a room in Magnolia Terrace because I think the location is a little closer to the pool and food court. At check in, the room was not ready but we were told that we would have a room on the 2nd floor in Magnolia Terrace. Here is a link to a map of the resort. This website is run by the same DIS member who does the POR info/FAQ thread on the resort board. The thread and his website provided me with a LOT of information, and the photos helped to get me so excited to stay at Riverside! (Thank you!) Since our room wasn't ready, we left the stuff in the car and went to the bus stop. We caught the bus at about 8:15. We actually made it to the morning show!! Just thinking about it now has the song stuck in my head....Casey Junior's comin' round the track...time for lemonade and Cracker Jack, Casey Junior's back, Casey Junior's back!.... I am trying to upload a video of the morning show. I don't know why (well I do know...I'm bad at filming), but the video makes it look like Florida had an earthquake during the morning show. I'll post the link if/when the thing ever finishes uploading.
