We stayed on the 4th floor of the 60's Lakeside and it was super quiet !!The 50's I have also stayed lkesideand it been quiet !!This time I think I will request Poolside inthe 50's standard room asJudy wants poolside !!

    Grace I may need to take you up on the poncho offer if I can't find them ! It is weird cuz they always have them!!! I didn't ask so it's possiblethey moved them and I missed them !!

    I will have little surprises for you on the12th and I got an extra "sword " glo stick for Landen as Kyle has one and the girls have wands !! These are getting harder to find too!!
    Yes Grace I do bring extra batteries I just forgot to list them !! We bring all chargers too ! In 2007 one got left and Pop called and maild it to us which was awesome !! I think you will LOVE Pop!! To me it is Sooooo Disney !! I don't like the mods and the DLX cuz they are sooo spread out and it is such a hike from room to foodcourt, pool etc !!

    Hi Rosie
    no we don't have preferred room , trying to save some money:thumbsup2
    We are hoping for a lakeside room, Corri does not want a poolside room,
    Was thinking 1st floor because of the stroller, but Pops has elevators Right?
    I am light sleeper, so I would like a quiter area too
    No problem getting ponchos for you, How many do you need?
    Thank you for think of us, looking forward to the suprises:yay:
    I KNOW I'M GOING TO LOVE POP"S:dance3:
    Going camping this weekend with the kids and grandson.

    Happy 4th of July
    Hope you have a great weekend:goodvibes

    Hi Rose,
    It took me awhile to find you again, I haven't seen you at the Sept code watch for some time. I see that you are staying at POP this Sept. Did you stay at All-star sports in May. I hope your trip earlier was good ?? I hope to get a chance to meet you at Disney this year. I see that you are meeting with Grace on the 12th, we fly in that day but we don't get in until around 2:30ish pm so maybe if we hustle we can get to the meet point.

    I've read thru your pre-trip report and things look and sound good. We have the hardest time getting the dinners all sorted out still changing some of ours. Glad too see that your doing good and know that I'll check back often too how your plans are going.

    Our plans are basically the same everytime we go. Get up late do breakfast at resort back to room change get ready to go to a park. Go to bus stop see which line is shortest and that is where we're going that morning. Back to resort for a afternoon rest and pool break then its shower and to the park that dinner is at. Well I've talked long enough hope too see you there.

    Chuck

    Yes Grace Pop has elevators !! Believe me if they didn't I'd be on the 1st floor!!:lmao:I would try for 50's or 60's lakeside !! Have you checked out the Pop Century Thread the 1st post has all the info you need !! Maps etc !!The 60's has a couple of sides in each bldg that are lakeside and not preferred , 50's has even more but is a little further from the foodcourt and buses !! I think I am gonna request 50's poolside with connecting rooms !! Asfor the ponchos can I let you know next week??

    Yes sorry I sorta dropped outta that Sept code after getting Fre dining !! What could be better than that??:confused3:lmao:

    I haven't yet firmed up the Spectro Meet but I know it is 9pm and the one in May we had a great spot across from the shooting arcade in Frontierland !! Atually I haven't even told Judy as she thinks I'm NUTS !! o she will be surprised when Dissers show up :laughing: I ma get a few dirty looks or a swift kick in the shin !!!:lmao: How many are in your group !!??

    Wow Rosie, you are on it!!!! You just reminded me that I need to get to our local $$ Tree. I want to get some of those glow bracelets and necklaces for MNSSHP.

    I got my ponchos at Walmart in the sporting section. They were less than a $1.

    Your stash looks good. I've got my favorite snacks and water saved in my favorites at Garden Groc. Rockie and I won't need much.

    I'm starting to get excited!!!!

    Hi Rose,
    I'm not sure about what time to show for the Fantasmic show ?? Its going to be crowded because of the lack of shows for it. I don't mind standing in lines the older I get. I do know that you should go to the show as early as possible in case it rains and gets cancelled, you may be able to catch it later in the week. On our last trip to Disney we waited till the last day to see the finding Nemo show at AK and it was cancelled for that day :scared1::scared1: so we ended up missing it.

    We're down to 69 days left to wait. Got the photo pass prepaid and now we just need to pack. We have all the sample sizes ready to go. We are taking light water proof jackets for the rain.

    If we meet you it will only be my wife and me, we really enjoy going by ourselves not having to be anywhere at anytime just doing what we want. Good luck packing and hope too see you at the park.

    Chuck

    Hi Rosie

    You can let me know about the ponchos when ever you need to. We sell them at work 2 in a pack for $1.49 they come in yellow, blue and clear and we have lots , So I can pick them up even at the last minute.

    Our trips are getting soo close only 65 days for me:cool1:
    and I still have a lot of things to finish.:lmao:



    I think the only day that Fantasmic is planned during our stay is 9/13 is that what you see too. This planning which parks which days and trying to do the specials is harding than making ADR's for me. We have an ADR at Teppan Edo at 4:30 p.m. so I think we can make To over to MGM by 7:00 to get in line but don't know how Landen might act having to wait that long. I keep telling myself we will have to go slow and see how he does and how thingsfit into schedule like naps and stuff sometimes he will nap in the stroller. I know it will all work out and it will be the most amazing and magicial trip of all:goodvibes
    Have a good nite
    Talk soon

    Hi Rosie,
    Just doing my part to help remind you to take dryer sheets. I can't believe we're down to 67 days. It seems that not all that long ago we had just started on the Sept. 09 code watch. We booked exactly 1yr out. on Sept 12 of 08.

    What day are you going to Fantasmic. We're ( wife & I ) are planning on the 13th. We are having dinner at Moma Melrose at 6:40 then off to wait in line. The older I get the easier it gets to wait. Chat with you later !!!

    We are going on the 13th too !! We have ressies at Sci Fi!! I tried for the Fantasmic package but none were available that night !! Our ressie is for 4:40pm !! We plan on getting in line at 7pm but with 6 of us it is harder to find seats together if you go any later !!When I went solo I could always squeeze in !! Maybe we will see you there!!!

    Keep reminding me Dryer Sheets !!:lmao: I am gonna start my touring plan this week !! I mean posting it !:rotfl2: I have been fine tuning it for weeks and have a couple of Plan A & Plan B days :lmao: So stay tuned !!!!!!!!!:rolleyes1
