Thanks Matt! Not too extensive, it just took a couple of hours to get them all. :( But it's funny, most of my photo walks end up at about 200 photos, not planned that way!

I like Pop Century. I stayed there one time. The big displays were awesome. I only wish they'd build up Legendary Years. What happened with that? Did they all of a sudden run out of money to finish it?

I like the Pop also, though I didn't from the roadway at first (before it opened). When 9/11 happened, the Pop Century was delayed. I don't know why they have delayed the other side, I've heard rumors of suites there - but who knows? It'd be nice if they finished it, though I wonder if years that fewer people are still alive and kicking from would be so popular.

Thanks for the great tour!

I am staying there for MouseFest and your photo article is making the wait even more excruciating!

George -

Thanks for posting, I was trying to remember your website address so I could put you in my links (I plan to work on that tomorrow). I like the Pop Century a lot, and December isn't so far away anymore!

Denise,

I have given your web address to some people at work (public library) when thay check out WDW books. I told them that they could get a good feel for a lot of the resorts that way.

Thanks!

That is very kind of you, thank you. :(

I like Pop's theme better than the All Star themes, but tend to stay at All Star simply because of crowds.

Pop can get crowded, no doubt! Though the Pop Warner groups really overrun the ASSports in December.

I try to hit the food court off-peak. :( And now I drive instead of taking the bus, it is just so much quicker. But that isn't a Pop issue, it's a resort issue (though Pop did seem worst this trip, always had long lines for buses).

During MouseFest, my brother and I will be driving, so we will have a car.

Matt, it is a 4-door Lexus thingee, so we could be persuaded to chauffeur you around.

But it would have to be some pretty cool persuadin'!

Along with the theming, I like the food court better at the Pop. The opportunity to fill your refillable mug with frozen coke is oddly compelling.

I have never had frozen Coke at the Pop, but I think the food court is a step above almost any other counter service on property. Love those sloppy joes and the Mom's turkey night!

Are you guys getting transfers over to the port? Or renting a car for the day? The best I can find for the 1-day, 1-way rental is Thrifty for around $21 base. The best I can find for the 1-way week after, is Thrifty again, for around $105/week base.

We're renting a car both ways and I believe Avis is about $40 each way, so split between two people, that's $20 a person (plus gas). Still cheaper than the bus transfers.

And more flexible. :D (you can get over as early as you want).

Another good point Denise. We're going to be going to the port pretty early so we can get checked in and whatnot and hit the buffet :D
