Yes, we walked over to AoA for dinner, and it's still closed. From the look of things, it'll be a couple more weeks

Well gang, I've posted here a few times about my trip to pop (going on right now!). I went to check in Friday afternoon and was approached by a guy on an iPad when we were at the check in counter (About half way done through that). He was talking quietly to the front desk person (All I was thinking is, "Really? a stupid survey already?! I haven't even done anything yet?!") He asked if we are traveling alone (Just the 2 of us), we said yes, he double checked saying, "Just the two of you? Not part of any group? Don't know anyone?". Yep, just us! He then said, "We have a Little Mermaid room open, and as long as it's just the two of you, would you like it?" All I was thinking is, wait, what just happened?! Long story short, we are in building 7 in a Little Mermaid room and loving it. The decorations throughout the resort and theming is great. Very cool. I believe AoA was over 99% capacity (Right place at the right time apparently!) since I only had the choice of 2 or 3 rooms. All in all, very happy with everything!
Been to all the parks and love them all. One complaint is Test Track. First time since they re-did it and turned it into a crappy commercial. It's Disney World. RIDES! If I wanted to watch a commercial, I would turn on TV! They got rid of all the fun stuff (Hot/cold rooms, robots spraying... a lot!). All other stuff is great. Rock, Tower, Space Mt... all the same (And awesome). I've been on the Toy Story Mania before, but every time I go on it, it's still awesome.
Right now, it's not too busy! Never waited in line for more than 20 minutes (That's because we mastered the FP system, but still). All for now! Josh

So you were in line to check in at Pop and they asked if you wanted to move over to AoA? While I love Pop, I'd take that offer if just for the pool area at AoA.

I agree with you about Test Track. When we "rode" it in March, I was disappointed and thought it was ruined. Bring back Bill McKim!!!!!

Nice! We're here at Pop now, just the two of us, but we didn't get offered to switch. I'd have jumped at the chance! We walked over last night though to check it out and it looks fantastic! I'm also envious that their food court has Sprite Zero! Enjoy your trip :-)

Unless something has changed, the food court soda dispensers at Pop alternate -- some have two Sprites and and some have two Sprite Zeros -- walk around and check all the machines...?

Taxi's?

Quick question - we are staying at the Pop for the first time on November 30th - is it fairly easy to catch a cab at the Pop?

We check in TOMORROW!!!

Bring on the Pixie Dust!
It is just DH and I, for our first trip ever without kids. (they are 16 and 20)
I requested 60's, ground floor close to the bridge. Can't wait to see where they put us. Like the other poster said, I will be fine wherever as long as I am at Disney.
Now, I have been to AOA little mermaid before and would take that IF offered.

Keep the weather warm and the rain away! Please and Thank You!!

Yes, most times there is a cab out front (off to the side of the busing area, near the luggage services). If you know for sure you will need a cab on a certain day/time, suggest calling in advance to arrange for one. The Conceirage desk can give you the number for Yellow Cab. We did this last trip and it worked out beautifully.
