(Wow…long time, no blog. It’s been a rough few months but I’m back, and hope to begin to blogging on a more regular basis.)
Looks like we’ll be spending Christmas at Disney again this year. We’ve done it almost every year since we’ve moved to Florida, and normally the decision would have been made well before now, but with the layoff and everything, our plans have been up in the air for quite some time. We’ve decided to go though. Christmas isn’t a favorite holiday of mine, and it takes a lot to get me in the spirit, especially here in sunny Florida. So going generally insures I don’t spend those few days feeling homesick and blue. Money well spent.
Some people say it’s crazy to go at Christmas. We do our best to avoid the crazy though by leaving the day after Christmas, and fortunately we have never had a problem with the insane crowds that descend shortly thereafter. (Honestly, it would appear that most people take their Disney Christmas trips AFTER Christmas. So maybe what they really want is to be there for New Year’s Eve. We get out before that because I’m not a big fan of wall to wall people. Nor long drink lines.)
We’ll have to economize, so we’ll be staying at Pop Century this time around. (It’s going to be hard to resist the urge to move up to a moderate. Especially when Port Orleans French Quarter was quite lovely last year, and I already have the themed tree for it!) Before our trip to hell in that handbasket, our plan was to look into renting DVC points for Animal Kingdom Lodge which would have been wonderful. But at this late stage, that resort, as well as every other DVC resort, is missing one of our days. Oh well. At least we’re still going.
So now it’s time to start working on the tree theme. Pop Century related of course. Should be an easy one. Perhaps if I have the time, I’ll do some tree themes for some of the other hotels as well just for fun. Or for future reference.
Walking right outside of your room to enjoy the fireworks lighting the night sky.
Here are a few shots from a recent visit to Pop Century. These were taken from the back side of building four, facing building three I believe. (Forgive the quality…cell phone pics.)
If yesterday’s post didn’t give it away, I’m a Star Wars fan. One that is excited to see posters have been released for this year’s Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Visually, Luke and his X-wing fighter probably win, but I love the R2-D2 one most.
I think you are super cute BUT…
$375.00 a night???? I know it’s a “suite” and all, but how exactly is that a value?!!! All-Star Music’s suites are a full $100.00 cheaper a night.
I really hope that this price is not reflective of how much the Little Mermaid rooms will be…
