    HEY POP PEOPLE

    Since there will be so many of us staying at POP during this time, I thought we should try to plan a meet.

    I have no idea where or when. In a park, at the resort, both.:confused3

    Feel free to discuss your trip plans. Share ideas.

    I really want to decorate my room window, but don't have a clue how to start.:sad2:

    So when will you be there? Are you attending the Princess and Pirate Party? if so when?

    Sign up with your dates and I will keep a running list.

    Hi everyone.

    It will be me, and my two boys 13 & 5. Plus my mom & dad.

    Here is our itinerary:

    Arrive early Aug 27th - MK early. Mgm @ night. Ohana's dinner
    August 28th - Epcot - Lecieller'
    August 29th - Animal Kingdom - Boma'
    August 30th - Magic Kingdom - Eating at Kona' for breakfast. Dinner Crystal Palace.
    August 31st - Epcot - Raglan Rd
    Sept 1st - Dont really know. But, having Wolfgang pucks for dinner. We have a 10 day park hopper ticket, so whatever the boys want to do. I may let them sleep a little later, too this day. :lmao:
    Sept 2nd - Magic Kingdom - Ohana'
    Sept 3rd - Ak day, Mgm @ night - Lecieller'
    Sept 4th - Epcot - Spoodles
    Sept 5th- I dont even want to think about this day. We go home.

    I have my lunches pretty much planned out. But, I have to step out to get my mother one last mothers day gift. So, no time to type them out. Disneyjunkie, guess since we are commando type Disers we will see each other pretty often at the bus stops early. Do tell about the cruise. When is it?? How much per person so far?? I never took one. So give me details. TIA.

    HAPPY MOTHER"S DAY EVERYONE!!

    I was able to book an Illuminations cruise during our 2004 trip, which we shared with a few other DISers.

    Things have changed a bit since then. The price has increased while the number of people a boat will hold has decreased.:confused3

    In 2004 we spilt the cost per family and each person added a tip while there. I think now most DISers split the cost per person and include the tip.

    We were picked up at the Beach Club at 8:00pm. We sailed around the area for about 45 minutes before heading over to Epcot. After Illuminations, we were dropped off at Beach Club.

    Very Similar to our, except the dinners.... and we have to split the 29th between AK and MGM to be able to see all the parks.... Will probably see you several times... Just look for a mother-daughter set probably both riding ECV's (she definately will have one, I will have one only if money allows, as she has mobility issues and won't get far without one and I have bad feet, but deal with the pain on a daily basis)

    As for lunches, we haven't the foggiest ideas where to eat.... may just stop and eat at the nearest ddp counter service place when we get hungry.... Not sure whether to eat while still at MGM or wait till we get to AK on the 29th or a good place to eat on the 30th at MK... was thinking about Sunshine Seasons for the 31st but unsure. Any suggestions as to a good place?

    Thank you for the Mother's day wishes!!

    Shhhq. I get so excited about going. That I try to plan out everything, in the days leading up to my vacay. I also love to eat. So, I pretty much scour all the menu's on allearnet, website. To see, what I can get for snacks, lunch, and dinner. Sometimes, it doesnt pan out, Down to the letter. But, I know pretty much what I would like to try before I leave.

    When I am in Mk. I have to have Cosmic Rays. At least once.
    Epcot, Tangeriene Cafe, it is delish
    Animal Kingdom. I have never had lunch here. But, I guess. I will have to settle for flame tree bbq. Since, I believe the Tusker house will be closed.
    Mgm, I skip cs here, always. I am thinking. I may head to downtown disney, for a cs, at wolfgang puck' express. I never had it. But, I hear it is really good.

    So, everything else. I pretty much play it by ear.

    My mother also uses an ECV. Her knees are so bad. Hurt her constantly. I feel so bad for her pain. But, she is a Disney or bust trooper. :)

    Anyhow, I can't wait to meet you all!! :)

    My mom(51), sister(32) and I(35) will be staying at POP August 26th to August 31st. Here are our plans:

    Sunday, 8/26: Arrive in Orlando (still need to make flight arrangements), get checked in and head to MK or DTD (maybe both!)

    Monday, 8/27: MGM - Brown Derby at 4:40 PM

    Tuesday, 8/28: Epcot - Coral Reef at 4:40 PM

    Wednesday, 8/29: AK - Wolfgang Puck's at 6:30 PM

    Thursday, 8/30: MK - Liberty Tree Tavern at 5:40 PM

    Friday, 8/31: Either do DTD or another park in the morning/early afternoon, then head home. :sad1:

    I am sooooo looking forward to this trip. I have never been to all 4 parks (only MK and Epcot [but not WS]) and have never stayed on Disney property. My mom and sister have never been. DM and DS came to visit us over Easter weekend. It was DM's first trip to Chicago. I left a welcome basket at their hotel. I included 2 copies of the Disney planning DVD for them. DM has watched hers a few times and keeps getting more excited each time. We have never taken a family vacation - ever. So we are really looking forward to this time for just the three of us.

    I hate to wish away the summer, but come on August!!! :banana: :woohoo: :yay: :cheer2:

    Hey! Welcome to our little group of late August POPpers! It looks like everyone will be there at some point on the 28-29 (unless I misread)... since you have been to epcot, you are a step ahead of me. I also agree with you.... August can't come soon enough!!!! :yay: :cool1: :banana:

    I'll be there, August 26 - September 4. Actually, I think I may be flying in on the 25th and getting a room before my actual "package" begins. My flight would be way cheaper if I did it that way.

    So here are my plans:

    8/26 Magic Kingdom w/afternoon tea at the Grand Floridian @ 2pm

    8/27 MGM w/lunch at 50's PTC @ 1pm

    8/28 Epcot in the morning and heading to PPP that night -- no ADR's as of yet

    8/29 Animal Kingdom and probably Jellyrolls in the PM -- no ADR's as of yet

    8/30 Magic Kingdom -- have an Ohana ADR at 9:30am, but may change that

    8/31 Epcot w/lunch at Coral Reef at noon

    9/1 Animal Kingdom or MGM in the morning/afternoon and dinner at Narcoossee's at 9:30p,

    9/2 Magic Kingdom w/lunch at LTT @ 1pm

    9/3 relax in the morning, will try to get an ADR for Boma for breakfast
    going to the PPP tonight

    9/4 not really sure what I'll be doing today, but my flight leaves MCO @ 8:45pm -- no ADR's as of yet

    I'd really like to meet up with other people for maybe a drink or a couple of rides. I've never done a solo trip for this long before and would like to be able to look forward to some company once in awhile. If you'd like to meet up, send me a message and we can arrange something.
