Flower and Garden will be beautiful! Good luck on your recovery! You will enjoy it so much more by waiting I think.

I check in 2 weeks from tomorrow! I am so excited to see the look on my son's face when we get there. I requested the Homerun section because he lives for baseball. Fingers are crossed!

I've read all 170 pages but I didn't really see any information on this. Is there a pool bar? For anyone that has stayed at pop can you compare the 70's section to the baseball section at sports distance wise to the main building? Just one more How easy is it to get a king bed? Thanks for the help.

Yes there is a pool bar. We have stayed in the baseball section of Sports and the 70s section (just across from the Mickey phone) at Pop. Our walk at the baseball section was shorter. Sports overall is much smaller than Pop. We like both resorts but Sports is our favorite of the two.

Checking in on Feb 3. I love A/S Sports and have always had a great stay there! What's making me a bit nervous this time is that - although I booked with a great AP in November - for over a month now there is no availability, even at rack rate!

I am hoping maybe it has something to do with the refurbishment.

The pool bar at Sports is connected to the food area but the pool is closer to the main buidling too. I agree with the previous poster that the baseball section is about as far as the 70's building at pop. You do have the football building length and then the baseball buildings are on angles to the end of the football building. The buildings at sports are set closer to each other and have 2 less rooms on each end of the buildings making them shorter than at Pop if that helps. I would think there are as many King rooms at Sports as at Pop. As for how likely it is to get one I have no clue but you can ask for one at check in. In my experience Sports is more accomodating than Pop when it comes to room requests.

Thanks. There are five of us so we will have two rooms. I was just wondering about our chances of getting a king room connected to a regular double room. The pool bar is a must for the hubby. That would be a deal breaker. With three boys a resort themed around sports is ideal. I also like the idea of a smaller resort. Thanks for all the info.

There are dance and cheer competitions. I am staying at Sports on the 2nd for 1 night before our cruise. I was considering booking a night or 2 on the 7th and 8th, in case we can't fly home due to weather, but there was NOTHING at any of the Values or Mods. Then I found out there is a dance competion at WWOS on the 1&2 and a cheer competition on the 8-10.

Thanks! I couldn't find any information, but figured it had to be some type of organized activity or the refurbishment! It will all be good, I'm sure!
