I have a little time till I have to get ready for work and I have decided to start our TR.
I will have to get my pics loaded later. My camera broke on the night of MNSSHP. For some reason it deleted 3 days worth of pics but Im going to try and see if I can upload from my cell.

Ok… Here are some highlights of the trip. We LOVED MNSSHP and her Birthday was so special.
I liked Pop BUT I couldnt stand hearing the toilets flushing every 30 seconds and the showers thru the walls. We were in building 7 the 80’s section with the rubix cube. We had a end room over looking the LOUD pool.
Saturday Sept 12th
I woke up real early to check SWA online to make sure the flight wasnt delayed. On Friday the 11th they were canceled or delayed to MCO so I could barely sleep thinking that I would be stuck here in rainy NJ.
We get up have DH and DD11 take us to the airport and say our goodbyes and hit the SWA counter. All was good and we were sched to take off on time.
Picked up some nasty breakfast at the airport and we were off. Made it to MCO 5 minutes late no biggie.
Found the ME counter and waited in line to catch a bus for 15 minutes.
A Disney crusie bus pulled up and as soon as DD seen the bus she thought we were going on the cruise. So we had a great ME driver EXCEPT he was telling all the guest to buy the resort mug because you will get free refills EVERY TIME YOU VISIT. :eek: I wanted to correct him but I felt it wasnt my place so I zipped it and sat back and watched the movie.
We arrive at POP and we are amazed at all the things to look at in the lobby. Madison wanted to look around but I wanted to get checked in. I did the online check in which I will NEVER EVER do again. The reg line was moving quicker that the online check in. So we FINALLY get to the desk and had the most UN magical CM ever who took my info and gave me my papers. She informed us that we were in the 80s facing a pool. I requested 50s but no such luck. I asked her if I could get a non pool view and nothing was avail. So we started our forever walk to the building we were in and finally arrived to a HOT HOT HOT room. I dont know if it was so hot because it felt like we were walking for days or what but it was HOT. I tried to lower the AC but it wasnt going past 71 so I called maintance.
Oh… When we checked in the CM advised me we had a Disney florist package and gave it to Madison.
Her sister ordered her the Royal Welcome for her bday. It was cute but not worth the $40 I spent on it. It came with a princess pen, light up tiera, box of cookies and autograph book. It was a once you do it dont feel the need to do it again type of thing.
After checking out the room we decided to head to MK.
First we went to everything POP for some dinner. We decided that we were going to share the chicken dinner. It was really good and the corn bread was better that moms :laugh: So after dinner we got our first bus of the week to MK.
We did our tradition of rides first. Buzz, people mover, the raceway, tea cups,toon town fair and then pooh. Madison decided she wanted to stop and get a milkshake. I hate when my kids or DH for that matter drinks milk in the heat. I think it will make them feel sick but she HAD to have a milkshake and played the “well its my bday card” so I gave it and went to get her one.
The CMs at the window seen her bday button and told her she could order what she wanted and it was on Mickey:heart:
So she got the milkshake and we were on our way to catch the spectro magic parade.
I like to get a spot AT LEAST 1 hour in advance to make sure we have one and we are not taking up any one else spot. so we stake out our spot and here comes the rain so we were sitting right across from Caseys. I gave madison a $20 and told her to run over and get rain ponchos while I held down the spots.
after spectro we decided to call it a night and hike back to our room and go to bed.
I will get pics uploaded soon. I have to go to work today…
