Nope, Seth has a kiniption (sp?) fit when Bruce comes on. Like real, scared-out-of-my-mind tears. So we haven't watched Nemo much lately. We watched Brave for the first time tonight and I was worried the bears would scare him. He kinda blinked a lot during one of the scenes but never cried or anything. Go figure.

We are - we'll arrive late Thursday night and leave Sunday morning. What's your schedule like?

Loved the pictures! We are staying at a moderate this time and I'm afraid I am going to miss the POP/All Star's big, colorful, fun vibe. We leave in less than a month! I can't wait to do some Disney shopping.

I enjoyed the pics of Fantasmic.

Thanks for the tour around POP. It is a fun resort.

Awesome pictures MeMom! I think I want to go back to Pop next time. I haven't even logged onto the Dis for awhile. Have the Disney blues. Going back to read now and get all caught up!

I caught up right after I texted you a few days ago (or was it last week...?), and then promptly got sidetracked. I am now officially caught up! And finally made a ticker for the trip. My director told me today that she approved the time off, but the paper was somewhere in my assistant director's desk. I already decided that once I get my copy of that time off approval, it's going on my fridge!

You aren't alone with not liking the flying monkeys from the Wizard of Oz...my dad HATES them. I think they were part of the very first bad dream he remembers? Whatever it is, he just really doesn't like them.

I love the Pop pictures, as always. The AoA ones are getting me excited, too!

Oh, guess where I'm going tomorrow? Earl of Sandwich!!! One opened up in the Boston Commons, so once I get out of work, Charles and I are going there. It's going to be a new experience because it's a freestanding one, so we'll have to eat outside. It's also not really in a location you can just drive to, so we have to take the subway, but I am SO excited to have my fix and to introduce Charles to our good friend Earl

I really will be better about keeping up. I feel like everything is going by wayyyy too fast!

Glad your observation went well, MeMom. We all knew it would, but I'm sure it's a relief to have that done.

Back-tracking: A little while back, someone posted about not taking a toddler to the movies yet. If there's a participating theater nearby, she could try one of their lights-up and sound-down showings. Ours offer something family-friendly about once a month. Great for wee ones and anyone with heightened sensitivities.
It's a big relief to have the major part over by holiday time. Now I can relax and enjoy and not have that burden hanging over me through Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I think a 'training' theater is a great idea.

Valgoof - sorry about losing your job! I'm glad you have a Disney trip to look forward to!
Disney certainly has plenty of bags of all shapes, sizes, and prices from which to choose.

And what a bargain for those who are into those!

Coincidentally, today was college shirt day. I don't have a college shirt, but in March, I may get a Gators one just to wear for this day next year.

I will probably buy Brave this weekend.

Jill and her bunch will be coming from Kentucky on Sunday afternoon, so you'll probably already be headed home. I should be flexible. I am cooking Sunday so that all the 'kids' can be off with their people doing dinners and such on Thursday. Just give me some warning when you are going to be going past my exit and we can hook up. Or if you are meeting Erica at Rivergate or Opry Mills for lunch sometime, I can meet you guys there.

Jealous!!! The resorts will be so pretty dressed up all Christmasy!

Even if we don't stay at Pop, we don't leave without a short visit. It just wouldn't feel right.

Aww, don't get the blues! Have some Disney parties at home to help until next time. Besides that, when you don't come around, it gives us the blues...and that's not very nice!

I made it to the food court in time to see some dancing.



And then it was back to the room.
(Jill will usually call me when she wakes up, knowing that I am roaming around. She usually says Bella is up and asking for her MeMom, and I go back to the room to hang out with Bella so she can get a shower.



If there is time, I stay with the girls in the room while Jill and John (if he is up) do a breakfast run.





Today's plans.



Breakfast finished and on to the bus stop - Brooklynn wanted to pose.



Sweet big girl! On this day, she and I went on ahead, and the others came just a little while later.



Jambo! Welcome to Animal Kingdom!



























This is what she'll look like as an AK cast member someday, but she'll have teeth where that big gap is.

Gotta love a day at Animal Kingdom!

Brooklynn's little toothless grin is so cute! Have her permanent teeth started coming in? I'm guessing so!

I'm actually not meeting up with Erica this trip. They are leaving on Friday for Disney and we just won't be able to do anything on Thanksgiving day. But I will call/text you when I'm around your way. My best guess will be sometime Friday.

A lovely early morning walk as always. I only had 1 day there in Oct and I really missed POP.


How nice that you and Brooklynn got some together time.

Oh, how I wish I were headed for the Animal Kingdom in the morning... or anytime in the foreseeable future.

I always say it, but I just have to spend more time there... so much to see!

I loved this update!
You take pictures of things I would never think to capture on film. They just put me right back in the park.
Just where I would like to be right now.
For a short week, it's been exhausting!

Where is that AK Tip board? I don't think I've ever seen it!

I love your pictures -so many cool things that you notice (that apparently I never do!)

Do you have the whole week off for Thanksgiving? I wondered because of your comment of "only two more days". Or maybe you were referring to this week.

I agree with Anita - short holiday weeks still seem longer and more tiring to me.
