I'm adjusting my reservation accordingly and coming in on that Friday and staying later in the week. We are staying at CBR, pirate rooms.

It would be neat to have a list of people/hotels after sign-up!
Doesn't Pop Warner mostly affect the Resorts, and not the Parks? I thought I read that...

Yes, which is why I think the warning was for if you wanted to switch resorts.

Cool. Thanks. Just wanted to be sure that I didn't need to switch my dates...

I've done some research on the boards and the parks see little effect from Pop Warner. I gather that the parks do see increased traffic as teams are eliminated. The "Super Bowl" game is on the 10th. I bet most teams will leave after this, or stay through the weekend.

I just wanted to give a heads-up to anyone planning to stay at the Pop Warner reserved resorts. Some folks have complained in the past about the crowds and noise level.

I was in WDW in 2008 during POP warner and on a few days we felt it was crazy busy for so early in the month (it was towards the end of Pop Warner that I noticed the increase), so I do not agree with everyone analysis. Which is why I choose not to go during that week this year.

I have never seen a major effect on the parks from Pop Warner. OK that's a lie, the one effect I saw was a bunch of cheerleaders in the line for POTC. They were doing cheers in the line. It was a bit annoying, but as far as effecting the number of people in the parks, not really. I have found the effect to be on the previously stated resorts. I will still stay at POFQ. It is my favorite moderate. The boat to DTD is a major draw for me. And I love the size of the resort. I might go for the upgrade to a king room. I love the corner rooms.

We go every year (except 2006 and 2008 we took a cruise instead) during this week and only one year did we notice anything in the park. It was similiar to Kim's experience but but on Maelstorm. At the time Will Farrel was doing a skit on SNL about cheerleaders and that is exactly what it sounded like to us. They only talked in a cheer.

However, over on the resort board there is definately some chatter on how it affects the resorts.

This is one of the slowest weeks of the year so to us, the ability to walk on just about anything is priceless. However as the girls get older missing school is becoming an issue.

Sorry Kim you were not the first - but one of the first

Just an FYI - agents are going to be contacting their clients this week to sign-up for the event. Once we are comfortable that all clients are signed up we will open up whatever space we have left for everyone else.

Will try to keep you informed of our progress.

Did I miss a post with the details?

I am not seeing any new info about the party, including the price. Is that going out only to DU clients now?

Yes, for DU clients the fee is $50.00. There was no indication about the price for Swan/Dolphin lovers.
