Does anyone know what is going on this weekend that would cause Pop to not have any rooms available? My daughter and family will be there, and when she called last night to verify all the ressies, was told it is at full capacity this weekend. Thanks.

I am interested in this too! I start my vacation Sunday at All Star Sports and it too is totally booked (and has been for months)!

Also this http://espnwwos.disney.go.com/events...championships/

It is the national dance team competition. The good thing is that they are at the all star resorts and one of the moderates (CSR?). But because they have filled that up, the rest of us value folks booked Pop. I think they will be mostly at ESPN and Hollywood Studios, and most will depart Sunda or Monday. I don't think they will affect park crowds too much as they compete all day Sat and Sun.

LOL!! Yeah this time I am only going for 5 nights. I am planning on arriving around noon on Sunday and I am taking the last flight out (10pm) on Friday so that should give us a good bit of time. She'll ask for 2 days off and then we'll plan to spend time together when she's not working. She is REALLY struggling. She's never been away from home like this and it is taking it's toll on her. I don't think she ever thought she was going to miss us like this! Seriously!! She is my tough cookie...NEVER cries about ANYTHING kid! Well actually she's an adult, she's not even a teen anymore...

I must say when I went for 11 nights just a few weeks ago, it was MUCH different than I had ever expected. She was only able to stay with me the first two nights and the second night she was gone by 5:30am to get in line to check in for housing! There were so many things she had to do that I was on my own way more than she and I had ever expected!! I will admit at times it was kinda lonely by about day 10, I was starting to 'feel' it. It was just 'different'. Going into the parks solo can be fun sometimes but time after time...Well...I was missing having someone to ride with...talk to about everyday life, KWIM? I think the 5 days will be better on this 'momma' too, for the times that I am by myself while she is working. I don't mind some 'me' time. But the last trip...WOW!!!! I think I got a little too much 'ME' time!!
So, Janet, you may not want my life after all!!

Thanks for this great information! That explains why all the Values are full this weekend! I enjoy the dance kids!


(but it does make me miss the days when my girls were dancing.)

Don't feel bad at all!! Just happy you got what you paid for! Like many of other POPers, we choose to book standard and request lakeview. I have never been disappointed in all my locations.

Didn't eat at the food court yet, but the options look very good.
I'm really enjoying the Pop, and will be booking again for May.
Well, you have the right attitude! Happy that it wasn't a deterrent for you and you are having a great time.

Perfect! BTW, peeked in on your PTR... your DD sounds amazing for all she has endured (as all of you). Any questions on POP, so many people on the thread have a wealth of info to share.

Hope Angel's trip is truly magical!!

Well, how 'bout a dose of it now and then?? I'm not sure how I would handle the solo time either, as I so enjoy being around and talking with people. One of my favorite things to do in the morning at POP is get my diet coke and my chocolate crossiant and sit either in the food court or outside and people watch ... waiting for my beautiful DD to get up ....

I was in Disney early this month (over marathon weekend) and met up with a few DISers, one of them, Grumpy Grandma, who stays at POP too (when not on her DVC stays ) We had a blast!! Love our Mama Linda! I think you came in after that, didn't you?? Just noticed you live in MD, not too far away from this Phila suburbs girl. Funny, I thought you lived in Florida for all the time you have been to Disney!

IMO, 5 days sound much better. Enough time to get your Disney fix, but not too long to feel the sting of too much ME time I totally get it. If you are around in December when a few of us are going let us know! Would be happy to meet up with you.

I wasn't quite sure where to post this, but maybe one of my fellow Pop fans can help out. DSis and I are staying at Pop for a short trip in April. We've got a 8:05 am ADR for CRT. What would be the best way to get there from Pop? We'll have my car, but I'd rather not drive.

Take a taxi to the Contemporary and walk to MK or take the monorail from there. I looked it up because our steam train tour meets at 7:15 am on a day the park opens at 9:am. The buses start an hour before park open.

I thought the buses started running around 6:30 for early ADRs, but that there aren't as many running as there are at an hour before park opening?

That's what I thought, too, because in December we were able to take a bus to Animal Kingdom for our pre-park ADR at Tusker House. I just wasn't sure if things would be the same for Magic Kingdom since I've mostly seen people post that they took a taxi or drove themselves to the TTC.

That would be nice to have a bus. I think maybe they told me that because the train tour is so very early, and only a few people do it?
