Thank you for posting this! I'm going to be calling to see what sort of discounts my group can get Wednesday, and hadn't read many 'Poppers'' discount results. Thanks for the hope.

Check out building 9 on the map. There are some areas that are super close to the bus stop.




We are here now - saw a baby (tiny, tiny) snake on the way back from the pool to the room yesterday. I'm guessing a black racer. I tend to leave my door open a lot to let the Florida sunshine in, but since we're on the bottom floor, I'm keeping it shut this time. 'Cute' little critters - like lizards and snakes - don't bother me too much, but I would probably be quite startled should one run across my bed in the middle of the night!

Tomorrow at this time, DS and I will be at the airport! Our flight isn't until 3:15, but because of American's issues, they're allowing passengers to try standby for earlier flights, and there's one at 10:25 that we're going to try to get on (there are seats left, so they said there's a good chance).

And when I come back, I'll be starting a new job! And DH will also! I feel SO much better about going on this trip knowing we'll both be employed. Now I won't worry while we're gone, we'll just have a great mother-son trip.

Sure they are quite pricey ... beers are around $5-$7 ... wine is approx $10-14, in my picture of the liquor area, I can't find any prices for you, but will ask MeMom to do so (as she is there now.)

Depends on your booking category ... the playground is over by the 70s (which does not have a pool) but you can use the 60s one, which has the kiddie pool as well. I think the kids would like the 60s or 50s too ... with lady and the tramp. We like the lake view rooms, we feel they are the most quiet (we also request an upper floor), however you may like a ground floor if dealing with strollers.

What category did you book??

Yikes!! Lizards are cute, snakes are not!! This is why we request an upper floor!! Hope you are having a ball!!

Request: If you can, please check out the liquor prices. My pix do not show the prices an we there is a request for info....thanks, no problem if you can't or forget!!

Current Bounceback?

We will be arriving at Pop in 6 days (So Excited!!!) and I was wondering what the current bounceback offer is? DD and I are planning to do the Expedition Everest Challenge in May and I was hoping to book our stay at AS Sports with a BB.

I sure wish I remembered the first room we ever stayed in at POP. It was the loudest room for foot traffic we have ever had. It was a corner room in the 80's with a rubix cube. We were right by the playground, and it was a straight walk down the hall the opposite direction to the key pad of the 90's pool. We were right by the bus stop and the parking lot. Every morning and every evening it seemed EVERYONE walked by our room and our toddler at the time was bothered by all the footsteps and talking.

So I have never requested near transportation again at Pop.

We have really enjoyed the quietness of the standard rooms in the 70's, and building 3 in the 50's. We have stayed in various 1st floor standard rooms in the 70's and never had that kind of foot traffic as we did in the 80's near the transportation. We've enjoyed looking out at the fuseball game view, and also the garden view rooms looking at the bunnies. Didn't put us close to transportation or a pool though.

If it's the size of a worm, it could be a ring neck snake. They are cute, but still make me cringe to see them up close. I'd be more freaked out though if a palmetto bug greated me on the bed. We keep our doors closed too. I was happy to see that room keeping also keeps the doors closed now.

Enjoy your stay!

The Bounceback offers free dining. We were at POP Century from 23-29 Sept. It was great. Excellent Mousekeeping! We stayed in the 70's, Building 6, ground floor. We were close to the food court and the buses. Had a couple of days rain but that was later in the day. Did miss the Fireworks and Electric Parade due to weather. But I hope to see it next year. We most definately booked out trip back for next year. I love POP.

I can't think of any that is a five minute walk from POP. Crossroads has a McDonald's, Red Lobster, Perkins, Pizzaria Uno, Sweet Tomatoes, TGI Friday's etc. but it would take alot more than 5 minutes to get there and a couple very busy roads (walking past DTD to get there) to cross that I would not feel safe on foot crossing. (Though many people do cross those roads by foot daily.)
