Day 9- Let's Get Poppin!

So we left Port Canaveral and headed back to Orlando and Disney. We got to Pop by about 10am and we went to check in. This is where the problems of the trip began. First of all, we coudln't find the reservation-it was in Allans name?? We coudln't figure that one out since most of the cost of it was paid by us and I had made the reservation and planned everything so who thought to look under Allans name?? But we finally found it and tried to check in. The guy who checked us in was really nice and tried to find us rooms that were ready or would be ready soon-or so he said. My requests were for 1) building five (60's building) 2) Lake view and 3) a cot. I accepted building 10-or zero-don't know it is technically but it is the 70's section closest to the main pool and main building. Location was ok and we were assured our rooms would be available "soon". So we headed out to move the vehicles to the parking lot nearest our building. We got slowed down by spotting the Dream in the lobby and looking and then ended up chatting with a man who was going on the Dream in a couple hours-he was waiting for his wife and granddaughter to come down from their room so they could head to port. Yay!! We chatted that poor mans ear off and then it was time to move the vehicles. We walked over to the main building and it was about 11 or 11:30 by then so we all decided to eat lunch-we were hungry-breakfast had been early! LOL

After lunch we still hadn't heard from Pop about our room (it was going to be ready "soon" remember?) so Tara called the number on the card we had been given and they said we had to stop by the front desk for our room number. Oooook. So we headed to the front desk to get our room numbers and I had fogotten to ask about a cot so I did so then and was told that as long as there wasn't a "do not disturb" sign on the door they would come in and set up the bed for us while. Great! So we got our room numbers and we were off to find the rooms.

I think the fact they charge extra for those parties, it is a shame that so many people are there.

I think that was Adams "tough guy" look. ;) It was funny b/c Robbie was jumping up to get pics with the characters and Adam wasn't and we didn't push him. Then Eeyore and Tigger came around and he jumped up and asked us to take his pic with them. :) Warmed my heart. I love that even my grown boys will want to jump up and play with the characters. I am pretty sure that they will all bring their children to WDW when they are grown and that makes me happy too. :)

Awww, Grandma Kim will be right there with her grandbabies!!! Yay on Adam liking the characters:)

I thought the same thing Deb thought- Pop looks very cool. We've never been there so your pics are really awesome to me. I'm sorry you were disappointed in it.

That cheesecake-hmmm, not sure what to think about it. I'd definitely give it a try.

I've never been on the jungle cruise either-it's on my "to do" list this time;)
