    Hi neighbor! (I'm in SE Louisiana...but own a business in MS):goodvibes. I am loving your report.

    We have stayed at POFQ and POR and loved them both! My mouth started watering at your pic of the pasta station! We loved getting pasta there.

    We have also stayed at the same hotel as you offsite. That is a great location. The rooms are nice and big...room for everyone to spread out.

    I feel for your daughter with the bump on her head! Poor baby! Our youngest son got his leg caught in some railing at AK once and it left a nasty bruise for days.

    Our kids always liked nighttime at DTD, too. We are planning a trip to WDW at Christmas. Only our youngest is still at home (he's 17) and wants to bring a friend. I asked him where he wanted to stay and he said POR so they could ride the boat to DTD in the evenings!

    Another good place to buy Disney stuff off site is the Winn Dixie out by Palm Pkwy. (is it still there?) We bought loads of stuff there. They had a HUGE selection of beachtowels one year.

    No we didn't do any charactar dining this time. Last year, we were at Disney for 8 long days, and got every charactar's sig that there is, minus a few we got the year before, so we just skipped it this year.

    It is a big decision! Do what's best for your family. My kids missed Pop, so I kinda felt sad for them, but they got over it quick with the pool slide, and Piano Bob, and the boatride!:)

    Did you end up with left over QSDP credits?

    My older dd loves cheeseburger while my 2 year old is a mac and cheese hot dog lover. For the most part my 2 year old will share with someone. But I figure I can get her a meal every now and then to use up the credits.

    Yes, we always have leftover credits!! We stay off property the last day after we check out of our Disney resort, so we use them that day!!! We had 4 counterservice left, and 19 snacks left!!! :cool1: Goofy's was really fun for my kids spending those!~!! I am not sure if its possible to use all ur credits!! We only shared a few times! Disney portions are really huge though, that u could save some credits! www.allears.net has menus!!

    Candy from Goofy's.. Sugar Rush!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Here is some pictures of the kiddos getting their hair cut at the Barber shop at Magic Kingdom. We had to wait about 30 min. b/c the family in front had 4 kids getting cuts, and 2 that weren't happy about it. But.. it was worth the wait. Cuts are $15.00 each...

    I am actually surprised that no one has moved it yet. I don't know, maybe you can send Knox (Canadianguy) a message. He is one of the moderators. Keep the pics coming. I can't wait for our trip in September.:banana:

    I keep hearing good things about Piano Bob. I hope we get to see him while we're there. Do you know what nights he is there?

    I'm so glad you accidentally posted it into the Resorts thread. I think I would have missed it otherwise. Only so much time to be reading threads. :goodvibes

    I'm so glad you're saying so many good things about POR. I probably would have missed Piano Bob and never thought of doing DTD at night. :goodvibes

    popcorn:: I"m a late joiner to your TR!

    I love your pictures! POR is one of my favorite resorts of all time! It was our favorite place to stay before we joined DVC. When I saw your pics of the piano lounge it reminded me of when my daughter was 6 and as we came out of the gift shop she heard him playing a song from Grease and she got soooo excited! She wasn't watching where she was walking and she fell down the little steps! Poor baby..she went from a big happy smile to tears.

    We were at WDW the week before you and I thought it seemed crowded for May too. :confused3

    I can't wait to read more!
