How funny! That's quite a big group! I hope you all had fun

Haha, you are certainly not the first to go to the wrong side at MCO.

YAY POP!!
Yes I do and yes it was Terminal A! You sure know your stuff! I am so used to Terminal C that it was quite a difference! Glad to hear I'm not the only one who makes that mistake

Yay, you started the trip report! I can't wait to hear all about it. Pop is a family favorite in our house! I also just customized our magicbands for our upcoming trip, and it's good to hear you didn't have many problems with them. We're going to be there for Food and Wine Festival, so I'm excited to hear about your experience with that too! I can't wait to read more!

Just lettin ya know I am reading! I love child free TRs! Nothing against kids, I just don't have any so I have a hard time relating and getting into the reports of those who do.

I stayed in the 80s section of Pop on our last trip but the poster in our room was a little different from the one you posted. I am now wondering if they updated it or if there are actually multiple versions of the posters within each decade. I guess I will see what happens on my next Pop stay in March...requested the 80s section.

Because I am a weirdo with an over active imagination, the picture of the in flight music made me chuckle. I had this mental image in my head of some cool collected radio announcers voice advertising Jet Blue's all day, every day music selection of 80s, 90s, and Demons.

A little late but I'm here!

Glad your parents enjoyed and that you love MNSSHP! I really enjoyed seeing your Instagram pictures!

Yay for Jetblue! Out of curiosity, where in NJ do you live?! It's totally closer for us to fly out of Newark and we somehow always end up flying from JFK.

The 80s must have been a fun section to stay in!

Thanks for joining in! I'm glad this is a TR you can relate to! Interesting, now you have me wondering if the posters vary by room!

Hi!! I'm glad you enjoyed my IG pics! I live in Weehawken, just outside the Lincoln Tunnel. Maybe one day you will end up flying out of Newark! It can sometimes be hectic, but I guess what airport isn't right? haha I definitely liked the 80s, the Rubiks Cubes looked so cool at night all lit up!

Day 1 - Downtown Disney

I don't think we waited too long for a bus and made it to DtD pretty quickly! We got off at the Marketplace and our first stop was the Christmas store! We spent a little time looking around and admiring everything. My dad bought something for a co-worker but other than that we didn't buy anything! Next stop was Pin Traders! I purchased a couple of mystery pins and also traded on the huge pin board they have! We walked around and admired the Lego statues outside the Lego store.

We also stopped at Guest Relations so we could redeem our PP+ card, and also exchange our paper park tickets for plastic ones. At this point we were all pretty hungry so we decided it was time to eat. We ended up deciding on Raglan Road! We did not make any reservations because honestly it was a last minute decision where we would be going. When we got to the counter it was about a 45 minute wait. However, outdoor seating was open and available with no wait. It was pretty hot but we decided to go for it since we didn't think we could wait that long. We ended up getting a seat in the shade and it was actually pretty perfect. I ordered a burger, Mom ordered Fish & Chips, and Dad ordered I believe the Banger & Booz. Everything was delicious! I tasted Mom's fish & chips and actually was super dissapointed that I didn't order it for myself. Luckily she is very kind and offered me some of hers in exchange for some of my burger Aren't Moms the best?!

With our bellies satisfied we were ready to take on WORLD OF DISNEY!

Dad decided to sit this one out while Mom & I went in and admired all the wonderful stuff.

We bought a few things for ourselves and I also bought some souveniers for friends back home. We were feeling a little tired and since it was Saturday night, DtD was getting pretty packed. We figured we might as well head back to the hotel and relax while we had the opportunity! Before we left we did make a quick stop at Goofy's Candy Co We didn't buy anything but it sure is nice to look around.

I especially wanted one of these Rice Krispies Treats cakes!


2013-10-05 20.03.42-1 by missangelalexis, on Flickr

We waited a little bit for a bus and once we got back to our hotel our luggage was waiting for us! We showered, organized ourselves, and went to bed as we had a BUSY day ahead of us!

Haha, isn't it completely impossible not to take photos of the legos?

I've never been to Raglan Road, but I seriously love that your fries are wrapped in that paper stuff. And I can only imagine how good the fish must be there.

Yup, you need that extra energy from a meal to tackle World of Disney, let alone on a Saturday night. I just want everything in there! Sadly, my bank account does not.

Sounds like a great afternoon at DTD! I hope those Lego Snow White statues are still there when we go--they are so cute! All the food looks super yummy and how adorable is cinderellas carriage above world of Disney?!?

Sounds like a fun time at DTD. We love Raglan Road - hit it up every trip. Can't not get the bread pudding though.

I agree that everyone is practically required to take pictures of the Lego statues
