Just changing from one category room to a different category should not cause you to pay more. It should save you some money since Preferred pool view is the highest room rate and standard is the lowest. They shouldn't have to change anything about your package other than the room category.
Disboard friends please correct me if I am wrong.
If you are within 45 days of check in, there may be a change fee.
When you booked your trip was Preferred Pool View all that was available or did you have a choice?

Just call and ask and let us know what they say

In a similar boat myself. I will be making an upgrade to my reservation so I had called to ask this same question. I was told that anything under 15 days would have a fee (not sure if she said it was 15 dollars or so) and no changes at all made 3 days prior to reservation.

Ft Wilderness and Wilderness Lodge are the stops for that one. There is also one that goes to Grand Floridian and the Polynesian.

Am I allowed to take a small dorm freezer to freeze our water bottles and ice packs?

Stayed at POP for a quick trip last Thurs-Sun... LOVED it!! I found the atmosphere a little more hip than the All Stars. Loved the CMs doing the Hustle at the food court!

Loooooved the turkey sandwhich!! Turkey, mashed potatos, corn bread, stuffing and cranberry. Yummm!!

Having the lake was excellent and a nice place to go walking. We crossed over to AoA to check it out.Proximity to Epcot, DTD and TL was excellent! I think I may be abandoning the All Stars for POP more often.

I got lucky and for the cost of a Standard got a Preferred. Never had to wait long for the bus. All in all, awesome pre-b-day trip!

Motion Sensor A/C

I have read about the A/C units shutting off overnight because they run on motion sensors and don't detect any motion and therefore don't produce any cold air.

SERIOUSLY!?!?!?!!?! Has anyone had this happen recently? This will instantly ruin my entire vacation if this is how it is at Pop.

My DH needs the room to be cool at night in order to sleep and if it isn't cool so he can sleep, I might as well forget about taking him to the parks because he will be crankier than the children.

That was a problem a few years ago, not so much anymore.

Oh thank goodness!!! We stayed at All Star Music a few years ago (three years exactly) and we would have stayed there again except they are closing one of the All Star resorts cafeteria's for refurb and we didn't want to have to deal with ASMu absorbing all the people from that resort... so we are going to try Pop. It would RUIN this resort for my family if we sweat all night long!

I just stayed at POP in December and I was able to keep the fan running all night so I'm sure you can keep the AC on too. I needed the noise to sleep more than the cold, but it worked for me!

The Kiddie Pool is basically a wading pool / splash area with small fountains.
