Talking TV connections

In 9 days we will be there. Tired of the winter here in Jersey. Anyway, my question I have is this, can I connect my laptop to the tv? I know this is silly but just in case I want to watch a movie, I want to be able to see it on the tv.

I almost did yesterday when I talked to them on the phone. It would only be like 36 or something like that to upgrade to a preferred room view. Does anyone have any experience with the standard pool view category? What building were you given?
When I had a std pool view, it was bldg 1. I really liked it for that stay. I had 3 teens girls w/ me and it worked well for a June trip! As of late, I have been booking a 'plain' std room as that has been working just fine for me but the pool view room is nice....

Depends on what connections you need, but generally yes, the current televisions have input jacks.

When you say building one was that 50's or 60's?

Building 1 (my favorite) is in the 50's section. It has the Lady icon.

It was the 50's section....view of the bowling pin pool (which is a QUIET pool).

Bldgs 4 & 5 are the PREFERRED pool view of the Hippy Dippy pool. You couldn't PAY me to stay in a preferred pool view room!!! That pool is WAY too noisy for my liking!!! LOL!!! BTW, The preferred pool view rooms are the most expensive rooms at POP (just in case you didn't know).

The main pool isn't closed right? We're heading down on the 23rd and it sounds like one of the quiet pools is closed.

Have a a great time! It's nice you are staying over 2 weeks, so hopefully lower crowds after the holiday. Enjoy!

Should not be a factor The movies show in the area between the 60s (main pool) and 70s on the grassy area closer to Classic Hall.. the kiddie pool is located on the other side of the main pool, towards the lake.

Hello Poppers!! I'll be hanging around here for a bit. DH and I have decided that we're going to try Pop out for our December trip. It's a way we can afford our 10 day WDW trip even if we don't get a discount.

DH is super excited about trying the resort out and would like to try for a lakeview room. I'm just afraid will have a lot of requests. In a perfect world we would like - non-accessible king bed lakeview top floor 50's section (not sure what the building # of Tramp is).

Now obviously we're fine if we don't get all that. but is there a better way to word the request?

TIA
