Yeah, I think we are going to have out CS out at the parks for lunch before leaving to head back to POP for our afternoon break and do evening snacks, as we have a few snacks in the room from our "International Drive Convenience Store Run" (We have a car for this trip since we'll be over at the Dark Side for a couple of days too). I'm definitely enjoying lounging by the Hippy Dippy pool (the sun actually stayed out for most of the day - only really started raining in the evening) and already have had a refreshing Banana Cabana over at Petals! :D

We have been here since Tuesday. It was quiet but has definitely gotten busier since lunch time yesterday but as mentioned, most of them are cheerleading people. We were resort hopping today on a Hidden Mickey hunt so it didnt' affect us too much. We didn't even notice the menu change although I did get a peek and saw chicken and dumplings which I hadn't noticed before. Thought it was strange but didn't look at any of the other stations to notice the changes.

I've been rather disappointed with the room service. I think our room was lighly vacuumed and the tub washed but that's it. :-( Still tooth paste by the sink and a couple of other things I noticed weren't touched.

On a positive note, the sun was out for most of the day which was GREAT! The past few days have definitely not been the greatest! Looking at the forcast for the next 3 of our trip has me hopeful that I MIGHT get a bit of colour to go home with.

Sounds like a good plan... so many great CS places to choose in Disney. We did a Disney/Dark side trip a few years back.... loved the WWoHP...in a perfect world we would have Harry in HS.

Enjoy the trip to the Dark side but make sure to come back!!

from some sun and spirts!!

momtob&t, your hidden mickey hunt sounds like fun! Hoping the sun sticks around for you and all the other POPers currently there or soon to be arriving.

Suggest you call housekeeping and explain your concerns (or go to the front desk in AM) so it can be addressed while you are there.

I'm a Disneyland vet headed to WDW for the 1st time. It's always been a financial thing, not a "I don't want to go" thing for me.

Anyways, my standards are pretty low, but i'll be checking-in in about 36 hours and I'll see how the meals taste. I plan to only eat breakfast at POP, but if the crowds get as intense and annoying as it sounds, maybe i'll just head to the parks to eat. I'd rather spend as much time in the parks enjoying the attractions and scenery. Since i'm only planning on eating counter service, the food will be there so that I have the energy to keep moving, lol.

This is my 3rd day and I've been out at the parks so much that I've yet to get to the food court or get a refillable mug - tonight I remembered Pop is famous for the tie-dye cheesecake and I've yet to get any!

There's definitely a big kids group here, in the lobby they have a separate check-in area with signs all over the place saying its for Varsity Competition check-in.

I think you will be happy with the food at Pop. If you eat, or go get, breakfast between 6 and 8, you should find it will be a nicer, quieter experience. Approaching 8am and after is when Everything Pop gets much busier for breakfast.

Does anyone know if the store at POP sells coffee cream? Not creamer, but actual cream? I know they sell milk, so if they also sell cream I'm set and don't have to do a grocery run.

Unless selections have changed, I am pretty sure cream is not sold. This easywdw photo report has details of the fridge cases and at that time I cannot spot any cream.

The food court at POP Is super good!,ok IMO(I admit i see everything through the Mouses sunglasses,sorry) i have not eaten anything there that I would say was,i would not try again. We get off to such a early start we hardly ever notice the crowds In the food court. It seems after 7am the folks start to build up in the food court, we have not eaten there for Breakfast that much but will try it more this trip, any food suggestions?. I am trying to convert my self to a CS person, its not going so well. I am thinking of doing a CS lunch with a TS dinner.

If you are visiting a resort that has a DVC property attached, they will have half n half in their refrigerator section.
