Lucky you!!

...I LOVE POP Christmas decorations. We were back at the Poly in 2007, after 4 POP Dec stays. We were laughing b/c we love Poly and the decorations were beautifull, but we had to go over POP to see the decorations... I even have a screen-saver with POP Christmas photos.

Happy Planning!!

Yep, traveling solo. Last time I was solo I stayed 4th floor, 50's section, lake view. Many nights didn't get back to room until midnight or 1 am. I stayed even after parks closed and waited for bus back. Anyways, I was fine but think maybe next time it would be prudent to stay where there's a bit more activity. It'd make my DH happier.

Just a reminder as people start getting on this train on how to subscribe without having to post "Subscribing".

SUBSCRIBING: Did you know you do not have to reply to this thread to subscribe to it? On any thread on the DISboards, near the top of the page and just under the advertisement banner and "Page # of #", there's a drop-down option named "Thread Tools". After clicking on this, select "Subscribe to this Thread". Please do this instead of posting a "Subbing" type of post so we can cut down on the number of unnecessary posts that makes it more time consuming to read through.

We just got back yesterday and my boys played in the kiddie pool twice during the week. I noticed it was closed a couple mornings, but was always open when we got back in the afternoon.

thanks for the reassurance on the "safety" of the resort....makes sense if you are by yourself that you would want that. whew.....I still haven't decided where to ask for (besides 4th floor)...I would like it quiet....close to the kids stuff....but not too close where it's noisy....good thing I have time!!

Also, the courtyard side of 50's bldg 1 - if you don't mind trees blocking any view:
http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...postcount=1162

Same for some of the 70's bldg 10:

http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...postcount=1246

Might put the request:
1. quiet location
2. 4th floor
3. bldg #

Have a wonderful trip!
Thanks for the great tips, I guess wherever we end up I will still be happy, it is Disney World after all!!!

I had posted in the last thread about staying at POP or moving to a slighter larger moderate room for my family. After reading through a lot of the POP thread, we decided to pay a little bit more and get 2 rooms at POP! We go in August, can't wait!! Just hope we get the connecting room request

Thanks for the great information!

lovemyboys2009 ~ The courtyard side of bldg 5, 60's, is the oppsite side of the bldg of the pool, but quiet and still very close to everything - Goofy pop jets, kiddie pool, main pool,lobby, food court and bus!
http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...postcount=1219

The yellow hi-lighted areas are preferred. If you booked std, you can see the non-hi-lighted rooms are still close. Non-preferred bldg 4 or 5 would be close to everything.

http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...postcount=1246

The second link above is to the 70's - which is also reasonably close and quiet. Hope this helps!

Mom2Elliot ~ Think I posted on your other thread and suggested a moderate, but was thinking that 2 rooms at POP would do nicely as well. Lots of great info here - enjoy!

taylor5 ~ you're very welcome! Hope the info helps a bit.

I'll also chime in on the safety. I did spend some time alone when I was there in September. I was in the 70's (Building 6) with a lake view, and never felt any need for concern. For some reason, if I'm alone, I always feel better on a floor other than the ground, which I had, so I never had any worries.

Enjoy!
