Thanks to all of you who answered my question about medically needed fridges. I called special needs and they did note that I needed one on my reservation.

We were in just in room 4340. It was not preferred, it was nice and quiet, it faced the lake and was just a very walk to the classic hall. Basically, we walked out of the classic hall, past the 60's pool into the elevator, hung a left out of the elevator and was there. I think it was a shorter walk from the room to the classic hall than it was from the any of the pop buss stops at the park to the main gates.

Waaay far is relative. Pop is quite compact in comparison to some resorts that are very spread out such as Saratoga, Old Key West and Caribbean Beach. Even the Waaay far out rooms at Pop are relatively a short distance from the main building and pool.

Annmarieda also has a point. You're gonna walk further from the bus stops to the bag check at the parks than you will walking around Pop. Think of the distance from the bus stop at EPCOT through the front gate to the first main courtyard at EPCOT by the ball and Kodak shop. That's waaay further. DHS is probably the only park that doesn't have a really long walk to get to something from the buses.

So true! I remember when I took my SIL for her first trip to Disney. On the first night as we were headed out of Epcot, she asked how far to the bus. I told her about a mile. She didn't believe me. Maybe not a mile but it IS pretty far.

We many times stay at Shade of Green and use the transportation at the Poly. The Poly even has a special path marked for Shades people. But it's still a 30 minute walk by the time you get to the monorail or bus. Pop is a walk in the park.

Does anyone know if Disney charges you to change your reservation if you are downgrading? Right now we're currently booked at the POP staying preferred but from what ya'll are saying it sounds like that may be a waste of money. I thought I rememberd somewhere that they charge a fee to take something off of your reservation but not to upgrade?

It looks like you are inside of 45 days. If you booked a package then yes, there is a charge to make that change. Sometimes they'll waive the charge. It's worth a try.


I thought this thread was supposed to be locked by now. Oh well.

It looks like you are maybe 50 days away from your trip..so if that is right, do it right away, after the 45 day mark it will cost you.

You're right. I read her ticker as 1 month 3 days not 1 month 3 weeks +. So yeah, you still have time. Call ASAP to make any changes.
