I've also stayed at Pop five times as well because I love that one too. It can get a bit noisy though.
Thanks
I love the thought of CBR, pirate pool, splash area and Nemo feel to the rooms all make me happy!! But there are a lot of negative reviews....a lot Have you ever stayed there??

Just goes to show what happens when you get a bunch of Disney addicts in a room together.
Ohhhh let's shut this bad boy down. We can start a part two, how cool will that be!!!

Stayed there once but that was 18 years ago so I wouldn't want to rate it based on that. I may stay there next year though.

What were the negative reviews about?

My daughter & son-in-law stayed there on their honeymoon & loved it. That was 10 years ago, though. CBR also has pirate rooms. POR has royal rooms, but the boys probably wouldn't be all that impressed staying in a princess room.

Our family's first WDW trip was Feb. '04.

That May, a live tree limb broke off of a big tree in our yard and hit my then 2.5 yo ds, causing a traumatic brain injury.
I lived with ds in the hospital for 9 weeks as he relearned how to move, talk, walk...everything...while dh and my parents cared for the other kids.
Besides our faith, the thing that got DH and I through is we'd look at each other and say "when this is over...we'll go back to WDW."
Over and over we'd promise each other that.
We tried to book a trip in Feb. '05 but dh's job was shaky and we couldn't.
Months roll by, and something comes out that will make it possible for us to go back...yep, the first time they offered free dining!
We went Aug. '05, and stayed at Pop Century, and when I walked into that lobby, I started crying, because it was SO DISNEY.
And I knew at that moment that everything would be ok, and we'd survived, and we were AT WDW!
DS still had issues, and still does to this day, but on that trip, a year after he was released from the hospital, a year after re-learning to walk, he RAN to hug Woody at a meet and greet.

WDW is our happy place, and I'm not ashamed to say it.
And now I'm crying again.

You are all good people...you know that?
Wow! That is truly amazing! God bless you and your family!

I would like that.
I totally agree! my dh and i talk about bringing our grandkids to wdw someday too! our kids are only 7, 4, & 4 months lol! but that is my dream too!!

Ok you all left me with a permanent lump in my throat while I was at work today - so many amazing stories of triumph & love!!! It was hard to satisfy my DISboard addiction while not smearing my mascara for sure!

And then I saw an ad on my Facebook page that made me perk up & start asking questions to myself. Being the experts that so many of you are, I wanted to ask here as well - the sponsored page was from "VIP Disney" - a UK travel agency. They're advertising "2014 holiday trip with free dining & $200 gift card" and they claim they can get this deal for US residents also. Is this true or a scam?? I can't believe it'd be that easy to get international offers, but I can kinda see how they'd be able to possibly, being that they're the reservation holder, so the address they give to Disney would be in UK?? Im just wondering what the possible risks would be if it turns out to be a legit business.

UK offers are for UK residents. If a TA is trying to game the system, I'm not sure it would be a good thing if Disney figured it out.

What a great thread!!! I literally got tears in my eyes over and over!!

OK now that we have either gotten our FD or are waiting until tomorrow to call...we have some time to spare.

Sooooo, with that, what is the one Table Service you are hoping to score. I so wanted "Be Our Guest" but can not get it for the first week of Sept. no matter how many times a day I look.

What is your one "must do" TS for your free dining pleasure??

Thanks again Black...you done a good thing here

We just made our reservations for WDW Sept 18 - 24. Southwest had very cheap fares on tues and wed so that's why we are leaving midweek. 4 nights at Pop with the free dining and then 2 nights at the Poly TPV with the room only discount. My DH really wanted to stay at one of the monorail resorts, so we are going to splurge a bit this time. For us its a splurge anyway!

Thanks to everyone here for all of the good information that helped us make a decision. Now I hope to see some other Dis members when we are there

My in-laws stayed there on our family trip Feb 2012 and loved it. They got the pirate themed room for my nephew. We went to visit there one night and the room was really nice, my boys loved the pirate beds. We ate in the food court for dinner and it was delicious. We did get lost trying to find the food court-parked at one building and turned out to be the lobby
