Thanks, everyone! Sorry for the delay. Long day at work and then immediately went to a paint party afterwards. If you’ve never done one but have a business in your area, I highly recommend it! Tons of fun!
Thanks for all the kind words! A lot of my pictures were taken with my iPhone. Sadly, it worked better than my camera most of the time. Ha!
Jo-jo, no. The Goofy splash pad wasn’t working. Actually, I was very surprised when I read that it was even supposed to be a splash pad! We saw it on our way in and then I read later that it was a splash pad so I went to explore it and I don’t see how it could be. There weren’t any places for water to come out that I could see. One morning they were sprucing up and one of the maintenance workers was power washing it. The surface was painted so I don’t know what’s up with that. It just looks like a picture spot now. Kind of a bummer for the kids, huh. I have to say, too, that the boys were disappointed with the pools at the Pop. The hippy dippy pool is pretty shallow and the computer pool was boring. We never walked over to the bowling pin pool to explore that area. After all that walking in the parks it was all we could do to crawl back up to our rooms every day. :redface: We really should have started hiking or something to prepare for this trip.
Last time we went I was on a scooter because I had a torn tendon in my foot. Boy, I missed that scooter this time! I know there’s been talk lately about paying handicapped people to help get you to the front of the line and that is definitely wrong… but if you ever get the chance to LEGITIMATELY go around WDW on a scooter do it. It’s like being a princess! No waiting, no lines, no sore feet… :wub:
While I’m on the topic of the hotel I’ll go ahead and give my opinion. I liked it. I wasn’t so keen on the food court, though. Breakfast was awesome but, in comparing the food choices for dinner to the food choices at the All Star Movies from the last time we stayed, the Pop was lacking. It just didn’t seem to have as much variety. But, all in all, I have no problem staying there again. It was nice to have a dedicated bus and not have to share. It was nice walking and sitting by the lake, too. And there were TONS of bunnies there! It was fun to watch all the little kids get so excited over them.
Yummy breakfast! We were on the quick dining service plan so we saved our meals for lunch and dinner. Brody and I usually shared breakfast. It was more than enough for both of us!
Yep. We got the cups. You know what would be great? It would be great if there were some kind of lockers or something to stash your cups in when you go to the park. We don’t carry ours because, frankly, I don’t want to have to carry them around. I also don’t want to have to get a locker or carry unnecessary items into the park. It’d be nice to be able to use the cups for breakfast and save your bottled drinks to take with you. But, who wants to walk all the way back to your room when you’re done with breakfast to put the cups up before you go back to the park?! And, if they had lockers you’d be able to grab them as soon as you get back when you’re feet are just too tired to take you all the way to the room and back. Okay. Done with my useless thoughts for the day.
