An awesome idea! My DD is sure to love this as a twist on the autograph books.

Well, seeing as you booked pref pool view you will be facing the hippy dippy pool ... and if you get the first floor, just know a head of time that this area will be busy with people walking to/from rooms and the pool itself ... translation, more noise and less privacy ... would keep the curtains closed if on the ground floor.

FWIW ... if you want this area, suggest you request an upper floor for less noise and more privacy.

We were so close to the classic hall and equal distance to the 50's pool as the Hippy Dippy Pool!!
Happy that you had another great stay and that you rec'd a nice upgrade as jcarwash stated. We were right around the corner (3160) in our stay in bldg 3 2 years ago. It is a great room location. Our housekeeper in August was terrific as well (Mariela) ... one day my niece received 7 towel animals!! Of course that was the day that she rec'd a lesson in making them ....she was ecstatic!!

my 2 cents

I just wanted to say that last week we were traitors We tried CBR for the first time in 7 trips-all others had been at POP. Within the first day we realized that all future trips we will be back at POP!!! Just in case anyone was trying to decide between hotels reads this I thought I would throw it out there. I instantly missed the simple layout of pop (took us 30 mins to find the room at CBR on foot) missed the food court and missed the overall energy that POP has. Go POP

I agree with you between POP and CBR! When you say on foot, did you walk all the way from check in over to the resort buildings? I know it's a maze to find the room. We've stayed there 3 times. Once preferred, once in Jamaica and once in what's now a pirate room but wasn't back when we stayed.

But CSR is my "home" resort. We book Pop when CSR's rates are outrageous or there's no rooms available. Pop is our 2nd favorite WDW resort. We've stayed at most of the Deluxe or DVC resorts, all the moderates, and all the values. Saratoga Springs comes in at 3rd, with the Beach Club at 4th.

No problem Janet! After this trip, and these two stays at POP (pre and post cruise) I will have well over 90 days under my belt at POP! and now that my older DD had been accepted into the spring 2013 DCP, I know I will be back there again in January!! Hoping for a good AP discount for that stay! But after that, it is going to be so difficult to choose because with her awesome CM discount, we can get a GREAT rate on a POP room but I could also try the deluxe I want to for the best rate I'll ever get. I'm going to have to visit DD ALOT!! Oh the dilemmas of having your kid work for Disney!! LOL!

Congratulations to your daughter for getting into the college program! How awesome for you!! January is typically a great month for getting AP discounts! Unless you will be there over Christmas-New Years if she starts early in the month.

Wow, 90 days at Pop under your belt!

We're going to be checking in to POP tomorrow! We normally camp at Fort Wilderness, but this will be a quick trip so it's not worth the cost of towing our camper down. POP is our favorite Disney hotel. I'll be arriving first with the kids and my husband the next day so we'll have two cars. Does anyone know how that will work? Will we get two parking passes? Will we be able to take both cars to the parks without paying? He'll be leaving before the kids and I so on his last day we both were going to drive to the parks and he'll go home from there.

It's no problem at all. Just ask for 2 parking permits when you check in. We have had to do this when dh has to work and meet us later.

Are there chairs to sit in - like in the pool area, and can still see the screen? I seem to recall someone saying you had to sit in the grass to watch the movies.

Will be checking in on Monday - Can't WAIT!!
