Hi Lyndon

Welcome to the boards, very nice to have you here.

I stayed at the Pop in August of this year and it was wonderful, if you like the All Stars you will love the Pop as they are quite similar. Very large Icons, similar layout and the rooms are almost the same with the exception of the televisons and room safes being larger. Im sure there are other differences but off the top of my head I cant think of them, lol.

The Rooms have hairdryers, Iron and Iron Boards. The food hall and shop are all in one.

I could talk about the Pop all night, so if there is anything in particular you would like to know, please feel free to ask me.

PS. Im also from South Wales.

If you have any more questions please ask, someone normally knows the answer :)

:wave2: Welcome to the Disboards Lyndon, we're stopping at the Pop at Christmas and can't wait, we've stayed at the All Star resorts a few times so I can imagine it will be pretty similar (but I'll let you know in the New Year)

Hi Lyndon

Yes the bus service in general is very good, do take into consideration that this is a very large hotel and like the All Stars at busy times they can get very crowded and the queues quite long, esp if you stay in the parks until closing, that said when we were there in August they did lay on extra buses when there were very large crowds.

I think September is one of the quietest times though, getting busier as you approch Halloween in October. So hopefully you should be fine. It was never a real problem for us.

Anything else you need to know, please ask. :wizard:
