Any info on POP?
 
We haven't been to Disney World since 2008. Staying at POP. Me, hubby 2 daughters and each bringing a friend. 2 17 year olds & 2 15 year olds. Yes we have booked adjoining rooms. Leaving next week. Anything we need to know? Can't wait!!:cool1::cool1:

Stop by Petas
 
Petals is the Pool bar right near the main pool. Say hi to Jonny, Gordo, Dee, and Bobby. Have a great time, walk over the bridge and take a walk around Disney's newest resort, Art of Animation. Pop is a great resort and we stay there every year for 12 days on average.

Have a great time!!!

Depending on when next week you leave, we may be there at the same time. We leave next Saturday for 12 days. I will be there with 17 y.o. DD as well! We are celebrating her H.S. graduation!!

We Love POP!! This will be my 4th stay there just this year. Looking forward to having younger DD with me this time. Last 3 times have been more or less solo trips to bring older DD down to work for Disney and then to visit her while she has been working. This will be a nice change! :)

the Pop Century is my Favorite Value Resort especially now since it has the perk of you being able to walk over the Bridge and check out the Newest Resort Art Of Animation every time i stay there i make sure to have one full day just for the resort and just walk around both Resorts and jump into the pool at Pop

Well, first of all, adjoining rooms means no door inside the two rooms. You might want connecting rooms. Adjoining means rooms sides by side with outside doors.

Second, you didn't "book" adjoining rooms. You requested them. They are not guaranteed so prepare yourself for that. With the ages you supplied, I think the teenagers will be able to handle a separation should that happen. I would hold out for room as near to each other as possible - you might have to wait for rooms to be available.

Other than that, Pop Century is our favorite resort - you will have a great time and even though you can't use the Art of Animation pools, you get two resorts in one.

Thanks for info. We called and added dining tonight and asked for connecting rooms. Of course we thought it was adjoining. I think we will do online check in and verify rooms. I hope out vacation goes by slow. I really want to enjoy this! I hope the weather is good. Just had severe storms here tonight, several tornadoes also. Everyone have a wonderful evening!

Another warning - you don't "verify" rooms by doing online check in and I would advise you NOT to do this. Online check in just means once you get there, you should be handed your packet, get your room assignment (if ready) and leave. Your contact with the front desk Cast Member should be limited.

Since you really want/need connecting rooms, check in the regular way. If you don't have connecting rooms, the Cast Member can spend time with you to find the requested rooms. And it's easier if you don't have any other requests (like specific floor or building) to get connecting rooms.

I usually will do online check in because I have no requests. But the one time I did - four rooms with one of the being handicapped accessible and on the first floor - I did the regular check in just in case something went wrong.

Thank you for the tip. I think I will just check in when I get there. I want them to pamper me! Lol!

We are leaving this week too! This is our 7th time at Pop and we always enjoy it. Have a great time!:cool1:

Marytinkerbell 06-05-2013 01:15 PM

Leaving tonight! 16 hr drive. Ugh, but worth it!! Can't wait!

Windsor Princesses 06-05-2013 01:44 PM

We learnt the hard way that adjoining rooms and connecting rooms are different things. We requested adjoin rooms and were given them at check in; but that just meant that we shared the back wall of our two room and they were on opposite sides of the building. So when you get to check in make sure you tell them connecting rooms.
Good luck!

Safe Travels!!
God Bless You!! LOL!
16 hours in a vehicle w/ 4 teenage girls!! WOW!! I could NEVER do that! I'd be pulling my hair out on an airplane with 4 teens those ages. (Not really, but I could never handle the car ride, that I do know!) ;)

Might see you around the resort this weekend! We check in on Saturday for 12 days to celebrate DD's graduation from High School!! Woo Hoo!!
