Hi Everyone, we stayed at POP for the first time in August and loved it, mainly because there is only one bus stop, unlike the All-Stars that share buses (the All-Stars being our usual value resort).

So this got me thinking, we all love POP, but what are your reasons that you love POP so much more than the other values, and maybe even all of the other resorts as well!?

I don't suppose anyone has any food court menu updates available? Maybe a good photo of the new menu or something?

Stopped by POP today to have lunch and check out the new menus. I felt very lost in the food court! A lot of people were wandering and saying how they missed the old menus. I too miss the old menus and the "American" feel of the food at POP. I asked for a plain cheeseburger as it was not on the menu. They took away the yummy chicken alfredo, chili dog, among other things. The burger was still very good and fresh though!

Pop is my favorite because of the lake!! I love just meandering in the evening next to the lake when we've had a busy day at the park or first thing in the morning when it's quiet. So relaxing.

I'm devastated to hear that the chicken alfredo is gone!!! That was my favorite POP dinner!!

I remember when you could get orange juice and milk! But that was when our cups would never expire.... I think we should have a thread about how many mugs we've bought over the years!
I refuse to count !! Haha!

They should take that into account. At least if you are going multiply times in one year, let people use the same ones for that year. I have 2 sets for this year. I certainly don't need another. That isn't counting for all of the mugs I have from previous trips. How many mugs do we all really need?

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

Going early helps eliminate the crowd issues in the food court. Of course that means you have to get up early, but hey...there's coffee...and POP Waffles!
