Here now. Arrived today around 2:30. I had requested lake view, 4th floor. I got the lake view, but they had me in the 50's on the 2nd floor. When I said something about being on the 2nd floor, the CM said, oh...I see you wanted 4th floor. Would you like me to check and see if anything else has come available? Of course I said yes, please. So, we got lucky and we are in the 60's, lake view, 4th floor. Very close to the generation gap bridge, which is great since my sister checks in at AoA tomorrow. On that note, we walked over and checked out AoA. I have to say I love the Cars area. It is done so well. The other areas did not overly impress us. They are cute, but don't have quite the impact that Cars does. I can't wait to check out the inside of my sisters suite when they arrive. I think they are in Cars. So far had a great day...had late lunch at Pop food court. Went to Downtown Disney...my favorite thing to do on arrival day. Did some shopping...got the cute Dooney backpack I had been wanting. Off bright and early to door Segway tour..can't wait!

Thank you! I ran out to target and bought an adapter so it would fit in a regular outlet.

Glad they were able to move you. Sounds like you're in a perfect location.

Are you doing the Epcot Segway tour? We've done it a couple of times and it's very enjoyable. I think they've added a breakfast since we did it in august. Let us know how you like the tour.

So happy for you that you got the location you wanted. I recently stayed at AoA in the Cars section and I agree, it has the best theme of all of them. And isn't the walk to LM a hike? I look forward to hearing about your Segway tour - it's on my Disney Bucket List.

it always pays to nicely ask We were in the 60s in August, 2nd floor. It was perfect for AoA and Classic Hall.

We think the Cars section is the best themed too ....if others feel that way maybe Disney will start putting surchages on sections.... (hopefully not!)

BTW, DTD is only of our favorite things to do on arrival day as well. Congrats on picking up the backpack!! Have fun on the Segway tour tomorrow.

13 days until we arrive at Disney World!! Our first hotel is POP and we're so excited. We plan on getting to POP and enjoying dinner there and checking out the resort. We're only staying one night but the morning we wake up we are thinking we might walk over to AOA for breakfast. Only a short time at POP but still excited
Any must sees at POP or AOA?

When at Pop, the tie dye cheesecake is a must!

Here at Pop now...been here since Wednesday. Got a bit warm and was sunny, so thought i would swim. Hippy Dippy pool is freezing. Guess the heater is still an issue? Moved to bowling pin pool. Much better. Having a great trip. Parks are a bit crowded though. We are just hitting them early.
