    Wow what a wonderful plan for your parents!! Do you know for sure their passports are up to date? I worry about all sorts of odd stuff and that is the first thing that popped into my head. Awww your brother is wonderful. Please thank him for his service to our country.

    Oh, come on Jordo!!!! Take one for the team!!!

    Thank you! He can be a pain in the rear sometimes and certainly a smart mouth... But when it comes to doing what is right, he really makes me proud...

    LOL!! I think you and I would get alone great! I too worry about every little detail, and stressed about the passports... But they do have current passports... They got them when my brother was stationed in Japan... If you think of any other details for me to worry about, PLEASE let me know... I have never been out of the country, well besides Tijuana when I was 3 but Mom got scared and we turned right back around!.... Thank you for your kind words about my brother and I will let him know... :flower3:

    Hey Toni!

    So do you like WiiActive, we have WiiFit and I find it kind of boring. I have been doing Turbo Jam for 45 minutes a day in the evening...I am going to start do either the 20 minute or the ab routine in the mornings in addition to my evening workout.

    OMG ~ you brother is sooooo thoughtful!! Please tell him that I wish him the best and will be praying for him (even though he doesn't know me!! :rotfl:)

    I LOVE Wii Active... So far anyways... I also have Wii Fit and also find it boring... I bought Gold's Gym Cardio and it is fun, but it is only shape boxing.... It worked my arms out great but nothing for the rest of your body... Wii Active is actually fun for me... Lots of variety with the workout.... It uses the Wii Fit balance board if you want it to... I even got Terry doing it and he is really enjoying it... I also like that is has you keep a journal on it of your meals and water intake as well as other activities... It gives you credit for doing yard work or if you do your turbo jam you can record it in there as well... Today was suppose to be my off day but I think it is fun so I just did a 30 minute workout... I can already see myself eating better cause I don't want to have to record bad food... lol... Also I cut out all sugary drinks only water and milk... I see a difference in my energy level already too... I have 4 more days until I will allow myself to weigh myself... That will be the test right there... :rolleyes1

    Thank you for the well wishes for my brother... I will pass them along... The way he sees it, where he is going he can use all the well wishes he can get!!

    Hi neighbors (sort of)!

    Alas, I have found another group of Oregonians going around the same time... we're going September 18-October 2 and we're staying at Pop also, so I just might see you around!


    I just looked through your plans and it looks like we're only meshing on the 23rd and 24th, those being MK and Epcot days, respectfully, for us as well!

    I'll keep an eye out for you and your family and say hi... nothing creepy though, lol. I'm only a 22 year old girl going on 12 :laughing:

    It also looks like you guys some good ADRs in there :banana:

    I'm just joining in... I know... very late in the game but when I read these, I always want to write my own but it never works out, but I am trying to get myself into writing a PTR, something I have been trying to do for a while :)

    Hello there! You are not very far away at all... My FIL works in Hillsboro, make the commute everyday...

    If you see us running around you should say HI! We are not staying at Pop anymore, long story short we are at All Star Sports...

    you should totally write a PTR, it is making the time go faster for us, and it is fun to see others opinions on your plans... People have great ideas that sometimes you don't think about...

    Oh, Jordo.... I am thinking it may be a good thing that you are in Cali now... Having Winkers, you, and me so close together would have made the world implode... :eek:

    I have been checking every morning to see if any other value resorts opened up... When we switched to All Star Sports, it was the only one available, so that is what we took...

    Well, now every value resort is open!!! The kids want to change to Pop Century...

    What do you guys think???

    Wow! What your brother is doing is amazing! That made me cry.

    That is a great anniversary present you're giving your parents.

    I will be here with the prozac whenever you need!;)

    Oh no! If you change to Pop, then no meet up for us :sad2: Actually, now that I think about it, if every value resort is open, why not try ASMu? Fun resort - and it's the only one with pool activities! We're really looking forward to having a great time there :goodvibes

    So - my vote is for ASMu! For two reasons: (1) I think you'd enjoy yourself there; and (2) I want us all to have a pool bar meet-up! :woohoo:

    The only value I have stayed at was Pop and Bill and I have stayed there 4 times and will be there in November. Can you tell we like it there? :rotfl:

    Actually, I've tried to convince the hubby we should move to the portland area. I love it there. I'd settle for anywhere in western oregon.

    Okay... We called our travel agent, and we are officially changed to Pop Century :yay:... After a family meeting, we decided to go where the kids wanted to go... The kids do not remember this resort from 2004, and we like the fact that we don't have to share buses with all the All Star Resorts...


    We can still meet up... Are you planning on doing any water parks? We can meet there or meet up in a park somewhere... What do you mean exactly by pool activities?

    We enjoyed it as well... It was a very nice resort... We are looking forward to going back... Ironically, this is where we originally booked before we started making changes... We should have stayed with our first instinct :)...

    I love Pop and it being the newest resort, it would be hard for me to think about staying at one of the other value resorts. I agree Terry about the busses and only having 1 stop.

    Congrats!

    We bought it last year also, but when we got to the parks we just threw the plans out the window... We didn't have long waits, but we did miss A LOT of stuff... So we are going to give it a whirl this time... Especially with Fantasmic! only showing a few times during our stay...

    We will be sure to give a full report... :thumbsup2
