    I can't recommend that book enough. Really great read, great history of the Apollo program. Even if that is Buzz on the cover (you can see Neil in the reflection of his visor). Buzz barely took any photos of Neil.

    Default This is Awesome!

    I was hoping desperately that a new podcast would come out this week. DW and I are leaving from Detroit on Saturday to fly to Vegas. I will certainly be listening to this episode en route.
    I will also be re-listening to episode 36 to hear Michael's info on DLR and Cars Land. We are taking 2 days out from our Vagas trip to head to DL. Staying for 2 nights and going to spend a day at each park. First time at DL for both both of us. Can't wait! Now to just resist the urge to listen to the podcast before we are on the plane.

    Loved Mel's slip about the newest addition to the Icot15 attendee list. You could totally tell that it was a slip up. Made me laugh!!!

    It SO was! We (or rather Gary) were going to announce it, but I didn't mean to do it at all.

    Buzz barely took any photos of Neil.
    Not surprised.

    I think the funniest part was everyone's reactions to the slip. Great news, no matter how it came out.

    And I am so excited the podcast came out an a day I could listen!

    You could totally tell by how you reacted! I snorted at my desk. Today the person over the cube wall asked me if i was listening to another podcast....like I have said before, they all think I'm nuts.

    So happy Gary gets to join us all!

    Favorite pool...I'm thinking after October it will be Stormalong Bay, but for now, it's any of the quiet pools in the POR. On more than one visit, I have been the only one in any one of those pools!

    My favorite pool is the Courtyard Pool at the Grand Floridian. It's basic, no bells and whistles, but it's so relaxing and friendly and you can see the fireworks from it at night-- plus the hot tub is right there for easy bouncing between pool and tub. It's certainly not going to be called "the best" by most people, but it's my favorite.

    My first stay at WDW, Epcot was just being built, so it was MK and Lake Buena Vista (which later became Downtown Disney, and was quiet then but beautiful with fairy lights in all the trees). And River Country. Melanie, driving in back then, you would pass the Lake Buena Vista area first and I got so happy when I could spy the top of the Empress Lilly riverboat (now Fulton's) through the trees. I knew we were close. We drove by the Epcot construction on the way to the MK and loved all the billboards.

    We stayed at the Contemporary because the Polynesian was booked, and after park hours the main entertainment was dinner shows (Top of the World, now California Grill, and the Poly luau) and Lake Buena Vista shopping and dining (the Empress Room). It was a different world, but just as impressive for my 12 year old eyes.

    I'd still find it impressive now. Contemporary, Poly and the Castle make a really cool triangle.

    Those are nice pools! I think John mentioned the ones in the Bayou section, but I love the ones in the Mansions.

    Oh, of course. The excitement never fades. I miss the old pre Downtown DIsney at that area, but everything else has only gotten better. The Seven Seas Lagoon area is still my favorite place to stay, probably due to my early fondness.

    My daughter has not thrown up at a mansions pool. Now that she's older I guess that won't be a concern for us. But, still, I thought we could go for a record.

    Early on in the podcast you were talking about the Fantasyland Theater in DL. When I was a youth I used to dance there a bit. I believe it was originally Videopolis, a dance club to compete with other youth dance clubs including Studio K at Knott's Berry Farm.

    I saw Samantha Fox perform there on Grad Night 1989. Now there's a Disney moment!

    The last time I was there it was a big princessy show.meet 'n greet thingey.

    Favorite pool is a hard one for me.

    My first instinct is to say Stormalong Bay. There is just so much to do there for the kids. When my son wasn't very brave with water slides, the kiddie pool with it's mini slides was very reassuring to him.

    I also really love the water play area at AKL- Kidani. It is fantastic and the pool is very good too. Great theming. At the moderate level, I think I give a slight edge to POR.

    My first trip to Disney was when I was 6. We drove from MA to FL in a big old panel side station wagon and stayed at a Ramada Inn with a huge pool. Only MK was there at the time. We had the old ticket books for the rides. I don't remember a lot of details but I vague remember riding the monorail in from the parking lot. I also remember the 20,000 Leagues under the Sea ride and the Haunted Mansion stuck with me for years.

    We didn't come back until I was 16. I never stayed on site until I moved to FL and since them we almost never stay offsite.

    Oh and for any of you who are missing having kids with you at MNSSFP, mine are available to rent.

    As usual - fantastic podcast! Probably one of my favorites - lots of WDW topics plus bantering.

    Favorite Pool: I am one of the people that likes the Creepy Clown Pool at BW. That slide is so much fun! We also like the quiet pool in the DVC area. Nice and big and right next to the community center. Carol has me nervous because we are staying at BCV next trip and my kids love the pool slides. I didn't realize they would have to go all the way out of the pool area to get to it. We like to always have them in our line of sight...

    The Belle meet and greet looks so cool! My daughter is at the perfect age for this. I am really really hoping that maybe we will get a soft opening preview of it.

    Hooray for Gary going to the Meet! Now if only you guys would change the dates to a bit earlier in Oct....
