For us, we like the 50s (bldg 3) or 60s (either bldg - 4 or 5). We book standard and request lake view.

Lol. I didn't request a building. We can walk, so distance not an issue. Requested lake view top floor cause I am light sleeper. Building?

50's - when hubby was a child and didn't get to go to Disney but watched Mickey Mouse Club to see the cartoons.
60's- I was a kid and had my first trip to DL
70's - I got to go to DL several times and hubby got 8 hrs in Magic Kingdom.
80's- 1988 I finally visit Magic Kingdom and Epcot by myself.
90's- meet my hubby but too poor to vacation.

So, will have fond associations with any building!

Katie. Hope everyone gets their requests

Getting ready to hit the hay on our last night of our first stay at POP! We loved the resort but the CMs were even better. They really make your stay fantastic. My dd7,dh and I alk had food poison and spent all day Thurs in bed and in our room.(not from food at POP!) A dear CM i spoke to when grabbing drinks brought up a stuffed animal and toys for both girls. Very sweet of her to go out of her way to make a yucky situation better. Pop really is fantastic.

Question? If I link my Keys to the World card to my credit /debit card is there any way to look up what we have spent as we go? I did a search on the board, but all I could figure out is they will authorize your card, then let you charge up to $500 to the room, and let you know the itemized list and run the charges when you check out. I don't really want to have to write down every time I charge a fufu drink or pork shank, but want to keep track of how much I am spending, just in case I see some rare poster for hubby or something on sale. I could just use the debit card, and track online, but then I have to pay a buck each transaction as it is prepaid card. Is there some website or info on the receipt of the accumulating charges kind of like the way it shows remaining dining plan credits?

If not, I'll just write down all the charges...

The only way I know of would be to stop at the front desk or concierge every morning to get your current total.

Thanks to Sandi and mhanback for posting the info!
Yuck! The kids splash pad pool was one of the reasons we booked POP. Is there anything else similar anywhere at the resort? Or do any of the pools have an area shallow enough for a two year old to toddle around?

Alternatively, any chance they'd let us use the splash pad at art of animation since pops is closed? Or is it in a fenced in area you need a room key to access?

We checked in last night- staying in the 90s. Needless to say never again-- we haven't stayed at pop in 4 years and have already been reminded why. There is a large group of foreigners- I have no clue what nationality they are- last night after 1030 a huge group came by and decided knocking on our window and screaming at the top of their lungs was appropriate for that time of day. I picked up to call front desk but they left and I have no clue where they went. If we weren't here but just for the weekend I would def be at that front desk

Thanks! Too bad the app doesn't work for that. I'll jot stuff down; if I forget (due to more than one fufu drink), ill drop by the desk and ask.

What do the mugs in the food court look like? Are they the same ones they had last January? Do they have cips in them yet?

There isn't anything else similar at Pop and the main pools don't have any zero entry or shallow areas suitable for a two year old to walk in.

I don't know for sure but I'd say there's a good chance Disney will be allowing Pop guests to use the splash pad area at AoA instead, as they tend to make those kinds of arrangements when amenities aren't available like this. If it's not obviously available, it can't hurt to ask. All the pools and the splash pad at AoA are inside gated areas so they would need to have some kind of special access allowed / an open gate or something.
