Thanks! Yes he is a sweetie - he turned 6 today! He's been Disney-spoiled...this past trip in December was his 11th! It's so funny to hear him talk about different resorts. Of course he usually refers to them by some feature he remembers - like the shape of a pool, or what they had in the food court! We hadn't stayed at Pop in a while, and he really enjoyed it. We had such a great time with the dry erase boards - loved reading other guests' comments when we came back each night. Another idea I got from the Dis! And yes, totally agree about planning the next trip! Bad part is - our APs run out this week so next trip will cost a lot more! Better start saving.

Anyone have the January outdoor movie schedule yet? Will be getting there on the 25th!

Have all the rooms received fridges now?

Going back to Pop mid-February for 6 days as part of a longer trip (couldn't get into Pop at all 3rd-7th so we're forced to ASMu ) I'm so excited, it genuinely feels like going home!

Just booked an end of Feb. trip with DD and sister . I really thought I wasn't going to get down there this winter. I'm feeling so relieved! I truly love all the Disney resorts and probably love AKL the most. Still, I have to say, there's something about POP that just gets me feeling all excited and in a Disney mood! All those bright colors and tall palm trees alone are enough to put me in a great mood. And the music. And the great CM's. And the store. I am also digging the proximity of AoA. Last year, DS and I were able to spend some time over there - it makes me feel like I have the best of two worlds. So much fun!

Has anyone used a twin sized air mattress at pop? Trying to decide if that will work vs upgrade to POR for our next trip. I'm afraid my kids might be too big to share a double bed.

I would tease him when we first got back by asking him if he could run down to the food court and get me a snack, or ask him if he wanted to go down to the pool - he would laugh and tell me we weren't at the hotel any more! At least I had the holidays to take my mind off of that depressed feeling of our vacation being over. But now, it's setting in - I want to go back! Hope everyone there now is having as magical a time as we did!
My kids talk about it too. My DS6 keeps asking "When can we stay at Pop Century again?" There's been no questions about Disney, just Pop!

Yes I did. The discount saved me about $228.00. Not the free dining that I usually get in Sept but I will take it. It will pay for a few meals.

We're going back to POP for one night before our cruise! I am so excited, it's silly! DH has never stayed on site before, so I'm hoping he'll love it. When we were looking for a hotel to stay in, DD requested we stay at POP. At first the cost difference between that and an airport hotel, but after making some phone calls and crunching the numbers, DH has decided he would rather leave everything up to Disney, and get in the Disney atmosphere from the very first day of our vacation. I logged on here tonight to find out that there is RO discount, so now I feel it's kismet!

Yes, I bought an Aerobed at Target and have used it for at least 3 stays at Pop. I like it b/c it has a built-in pump and deflates easily. A great investment!

Visa offer

Does anyone know if there are only certain room types at the POP available with the Disney Visa offer? If so, was preferred pool view included? Thanks
