Yes. They are mini-fridges that do not have a freezer compartment. Check the first page of this thread as I believe Janet B posted photos of the fridge. It is adequate for basic refrigerated items.

Sandi ... what a great idea using the app on the phone (although we never seen to need any sleep aid, we fall asleep as soon as we hit the bed!! ... must be those long hot & humid august days! )

I ordered one of the photo blankets from wal-mart. I put pictures of our big family trip to disney this past summer on it. I also have several Eeyore, Grumpy, and Jack Sparrow items for her. When she returns to our room tomorrow night she will have all these laid out on her bed. Can't wait to see the look on her face
The photo blanket is such a wonderful and thoughtful present for your Mom! And with all the rest of your gifts, she will be overjoyed! Have a fantastic time and as Sandi posted, PLEASE share of picture or two of your Mom's exciitement.

Just got back from another quick trip to Pop Century. For the third time in a row we got placed in building 3. This time the room was facing the 60's. It was a quick walk to the Hippy Dippy pool, though the outside temps were too cool for us to swim. Wasn't too cool for many other guests. DS had a great time at the 3pm Dance party.

We were in room 3139. I was disappointed in this room. Not the location, but the physical appearance inside this room. There were several places where the wall paper and the drywall buckled pretty badly. Housekeeping was good. The beds were comfy. The same cm who checked me in last time, also did our check in this time. It's always nice to see a familiar face!

We only got to two parks, Epcot and MK. The Christmas decorations are awesome!

Also, the food court at AOA has more veggie and fish options. It is worth a walk over there to dine at the food court (IMHO).
The AOA is on our list for breakfast the next day since we get in so late tomorrow. Looking forward to checking that one out as well!

Wow, checking in before noon and getting all your requests. That's awesome. I love the lakeview. Enjoy your trip and report in so the rest of us can live vicariously through you!

Do the rooms have am/fm alarm clocks? If so, a trick I use for white noise it to set it in between stations for static and turn the volume up. Hoping this is an option for our January trip!

I asked a few months ago and was told that all the rooms at Pop now have sound machine alarm clocks. Is this not true?

My recollection from our April and August trips is that the alarm clock is a basic AM-FM radio. When we stayed at BWV, the clocks were also Ipod docking stations; not so at Pop.

Maybe someone who is there now can confirm. Phoenix?

I will check on this tonight when I go back to room, after MVMCP. I didn't even look at the clock earlier, just put my stuff in and left!

Hello- my "10 day out" date for online check in if I choose to is coming right up. I made my preferences known when I made my reservations through my TA, which have been noted on my reservation. My question is, if I take advantage of online check in, will those requests remain known or will no one ever see them? Our reservations include 3 linked ressies. Two rooms requested as connected with the third as adjoining. We will be arriving at approx. 10 am. I didn't want our original requests to be ignored in favor of being assigned room(s) that may be available at our check-in just because they are available. I've read some other posts stating that some resorts top priority is to fill the 1st available rooms and possibly not honor your original requests. I'm willing to wait until arrival if it will prevent a problem. I'm assuming that maybe 10am on a Monday morning might not be quite as hectic for regular check-in and more of a chance of getting our requests. Anyone have thoughts on this?
