No fees. We have done the dining plan many times and the only thing we spend money on are tips, alcohol (if you drink), souvenirs, and any extra food, snacks our drinks you may want beyond what's included in the dining plan (which shouldn't bee much if any....it's a lot of food!). I love being on the dining plan because it lets me have a very small spending budget once we arrive at Disney!

Currently staying at POP in 50's building 2. Sadly no fridge though. For anyone interested current BB offer is free dining next 8/20 - 9/29. We are already returning next Thanksgiving so won't be using that one.

Smile Pop is our favorite resort!

In answer to a couple of questions I just saw on this forum:
.We just came back from 2 weeks at POP and if you are on the dining plan, have park tickets and POP lodging, there are no other costs from WDW. However, the stores have a lot of STUFF to buy!!! You will have fun in the Everything POP store - we think it is a very good one.
.The POP buses were very good - we were there in a low crowd timeframe but the buses were there within 5-10 minutes of walking over to the line.
.Bring RAIN ponchos - it can rain at any afternoon down there. One day it opened up while we were in the bowling ball pool and it was fun!
.Love bugs were just started coming out when we left at the end of Sept. so I imagine they are out now.
.Expect a lot of people at Epcot due to F&W Festival - the crowds were just starting when we left but there was a noticeable difference at Epcot.
.Parking is a pain in DTD. Construction has left them short of spaces so go early.
Have fun!

Cheers!

Hummmm, we arrive on the 19th and have requested 50's bldg but I don't think anyone has posted about having a new fridge in 50's yet, not to say they won't be installed over the next two weeks. I may change us to 60's because a new fridge and new bedding would be fantastic :-)
I have a small order being delvrd from Garden Grocer for DD (picky eater) and a working fridge would make food storage much easier than a softsided cooler. We have never stayed at Pop before so I don't have my heart set on any particular bldg. There are ALOT of us on here staying at Pop and arriving on or around the 19th, anyone else thinking of changing up their bldg request in order to possible get a working fridge and cozy new bedding? LOL

There is no construction going on. Only thing happening is replacing fridges and bedding. Which can occur while you are at the parks.

If you're talking about what I highlighted in red, that's at Downton Disney.

I'll be there a week from today! I haven't even started packing yet, which is odd for me, but I have a business trip to take from Thursday through Sunday... Next Monday I'll have to go to the laundromat and THEN pack for WDW. I've NEVER packed the day before a trip before. The idea terrifies me.

I'm hoping to have the new bedding, I really despise hotel bedspreads. I didn't request a specific building or section, just lake view and ground floor.

35 days for me. Still trying to decide if I want to request a building, floor, or king bed. I was thinking 50s, but my last stay in the 50s I couldn't have been further from EVERYTHING, so I don't know if I want to request that. Maybe 60s lakeview high floor?

Luckily the Pop had my online checkin info afterall and they had me all setup when I arrived.
So even though my cc did not go through and I had to end up calling to finish paying for my reservation, I can get in the online check-in line? I have a fear of getting in that line and then the cast member telling me that I have to get in the long, regular check-in line. Before we called we gave it a few days to see if the payment would go through and it never did. The online check-in button was gone though.

Thank you all!! I must have gotten confused with all the posts about the refrigerators. That's neat, will they complete the update to rooms by February you think?
