Bed is not comfortable and small but it is only a few nights. Since we arrived so last we are just chillin today here at Pop. Later this evening we may head over to the putt-putt then have dinner at Wolf Gang Express.

I'll POP back later....
Hey there Neighbor!! We're in bldg 5 right now too! We're not pool view though. We're ground floor facing away. So far it has been very quiet andI love the location!!
Not sure what to think though when I walked in tonite and the CM said to me "Well Hello there! Weren't you here not that long ago? Welcome Back!"
Better Yet, DD attempted to go to our 'old' room at one point! I guess this is a sign we spend a little too much time here?? LOL!

Only 7 days until we're 1st time PoPpers!

Thinking through our schedule and need some guidance from the experienced PoPpers out there: We've got a 9:25am ADR @ 1900 Park Fare the day we check-out. Thinking that we'll just pack the car and check-out on our way to breakfast.

Here's the question: What time should we leave PoP to drive to GF, self-park and get to our morning ADR with time to spare? Any other advice always appreciated. TIA!

Too funny!! Although it IS nice to be remembered!! And it's a riot that your DD was heading to the prior room you had!!

And it can never be said that one spends TOO much time at Disney!

It's a good plan to check out and pack up the car before heading over to the GF. Keep in mind that self parking at the GF is further away from the resort (the closer parking is reserved for guests at the resort).

Are you planning to go to MK that day?? If so, I would park at Ticket & Transportation and take the monorail to GF. If not, probably leave POP around 8:30 am .... you will arrive early, but you may be able to be seated in advance of your ADR time, or you can just relax in the lobby area...

Thank you for the advice, Janet! We're not going to MK that day since we plan to pick oranges at Showcase of Citrus before hitting the road home. We'll prepare to leave POP by 8:30am. We're looking forward to spending some time checking out GF... Maybe they'll even have a few early Christmas decorations for us to see. Thanks again!

You're very welcome!! The first time we had an ADR at the GF, we drove over, never knowing that non-guests of the resort had to park in a lot further away .. needless to say that was the time we were running behind on our timeframe ... so dropped off everyone, parked and hoofed it back...whew, everything turned out okay, 1900 Park fare was running behind too!!

So, just like to tell others in case people are not aware of the parking situation. And picking oranges sounds like a great way to end your vacation and bring a little bit of the sunshine home with you!

27 more days!

Heading back to Pop in 27 days. This will be my first adult only trip (Taking my mom for her 68th birthday), and our first Christmas trip. We were there in august and she loved our room location and my mom absolutely fell in love with our mousekeeper Blanca. So do you think there is a way to request being in the section that Blanca would be working during our visit?

One of the many thing I love about PoP is the ability to decorate our room window! Does anyone here do this? The first is a pic of our Halloween window and the scond is our Easter window. I went to the craft store today and found our theme for April; flip-flops and summer fun!

Just thought I would POP in and give a short report....

Day one we relaxed most of the day then headed down to play Putt Putt...this was a 1st. Winter Summerland is very cute. After two rounds we went downtown for dinner at Wolfgang Express....outstanding!!! A must do!!

Day two...we hit AK at opening....park was not crowded at all till the afternoon but we did not wait in any lines all day. After AK we headed to Chef Mickeys, had a 8pm ressie but arrived at 7pm and was seated. DS9 loves Goofy so CM is a must do for interaction....once again very pleased. Since we were close to MK and the MNSSHP fireworks were getting ready to start we took the monorail over and sat out front to watch. Two CM's were very kind and gave DS two handfuls of candy.

POP has been great...not crowded until tonight. Pool is nice but cold at night. Tomorrow we are headed over to speedway the AoA to explore.
