    Sorry!! I actually had to get some work done this morning. Crazy, right?!

    Well thankfully, none of our choices are "that kind of motel". LOL

    I think all four options were guessed by at least one person. Sorry Tofu, changing the roll call again. But this time I swear I am done. :rotfl2:


    So after discussing this with DH last night.... We decided CSR looked too much like the condo we stayed in last year--very nice, but not Disney at all. We could stay somewhere like that on a different vacation.
    WL was still my first choice, but if I want DH to ever agree to go to Disney again, this vacation cannot be a budget buster. AKL was a little cheaper, but still too much and DH had little interest in that one.

    So POP Century it is!!!!! I am excited to have the food court and to take pictures of all the giant icons. I want to walk across the bridge to see AoA (and Jordan and Abby). We saved $500, so now my souvenir budget has a little more wiggle room. And the people on that POP thread are just so excited about going back to POP. I made my room request for one of the recommended quieter sections so we can get a little peace, maybe. I am going to start saving now, so we can stay deluxe on the next trip, but I am happy with this choice.

    Thank you to everyone for weighing in on my debate and putting up with my indecisiveness. LOL

    You're actually doing WORK on a FRIDAY??? Are you insane??? Fridays are for slacking off and goofing around waiting for the weekend to start :lmao:

    I think you made a great choice! $500 is a LOT of extra spending money AND you'll be right next door when we're at AoA!

    WHAT :eek:?! That was a surprise! I never would have guessed you would go for Pop since you were talking about AKL and WL a lot! Are you sure this time? In any case, I'm glad you are happy with your choice.

    We stayed at Pop back in 2006 and loved it. We had the 50's section and our room faced the parking lot. But it was kind of quiet. We even got to see some fireworks from HS.

    I thought AoA is supposed to be a "value" resort? When I looked at the pricing for 2013, the cost was in the price range of a moderate.

    I know! I looked into booking for our December trip for 6 BUT, it was cheaper to book 2 rooms at a moderate!

    I think you've made a good choice - it was your first choice and its your first on-site stay so you're gonna love it. Save the deluxes for next time :)

    Well this whole week has been spent thinking about Disney, so I figure I can give them an hour of my time.

    Are you there when I am??? I should really pay more attention to that stuff.

    I know!! I talked about upgrading so much. It just didnt make sense for us. I am sure. I dont feel that crazy need to change anymore. The pieces just all fell into place last night. And I was able to keep my FD even though the offer is expired so that sealed the deal. I requested 50's lakeview.

    Well you were in good company. I think everyone said AKL, except Levenhopper and he might have had inside information. :rolleyes1

    Yep it was my first choice, many months ago. Should have just stuck with that first instinct. :thumbsup2

    That's awesome that you were able to keep the FD! I didn't realize that this was your first stay on site. Pop was my first stay on-site as well. I loved seeing all of the nostalgia in the lobby and seeing things that I owned. They even have a pair of the old fashion rollerskates with the wooden wheels. My mom still owns her set.

    The way this thread has been moving I'd believe it! Three pages were added since I went to bed last night. At least it wasn't 8 like the last time!

    Oh Em Gee - haven't read all the way through so don't know if you've revealed your resort but I say you stayed with CSR... only because you wrote BOTH you and hubby are happy... which means no additional stresses like money to upgrade...



    Hilarious!
