I can't imagine a stain won't crop up that I'm compelled to get out.... or we'll run out of the "comfortable" underwear!! Are the washers and dryers at the Pop the new fangled front loading HE kind? The old front loaders? How much $$ is needed? I'm wondering what kind of Tide to bring, HE or the old kind.
Go to the first page of this thread and click on the "old" pop picture thread. Tehre were some pics of the washer and dryer in that. I think I have a index on that first page telling which pages had some of the pictures.

Wow thanks. I did get to see pics of the washer/dryers. $2.00 for 25 minutes of drying someone mentioned Mine is never done in that time! Nothing in the pictures was close enough to see if the machines are HE or not. I assume they're not otherwise they'd have to have warning signs up telling people what kind of detergent to use. I might just call the front desk and ask.

Although I did not get the information I was looking for, I happened past a discussion about a privacy curtain and learned that a standard shower tension rod and shower curtain work across the sink/mirror area as a privacy screen. Yeah! That's always been an issue especially now that DD8 is getting older and DS18 often (still) stays with us.

thanks again

The washers and dryers were not HE in the 50s laundry room last August. Dryer #11 was possessed or something because it never stopped. It just kept drying and drying...

Fyi, if you get a newly refurbished room, a privacy curtain between the sink area and the rest of the room will be included. There's a thread on the main Resorts forum that talks about where the rehab has been completed, so you'll know where to ask for if you want a new room.

Do you have a link to that main resorts forum? I had trouble finding it.

Here you are, Mindy. A link to the main Resorts forum:

http://www.disboards.com/forumdispla...aysprune=&f=12

And here is a link to the thread I mentioned about the refurbished rooms:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2397068

I don't think the update on page 13 is accurate because it's being reported that Building 5 (one of the 60s buildings) is being rehabbed right now (see the end of the thread).

Has anyone noticed that the new dresser has less storage than the original one. The new one has only 3 drawers and 2 shelf and 2 cubby space. The old dresser had 6 drawers and 3 shelf/cubby area. I had thought I had a rehabbed 70's room in April, but I know we had the original style dresser and TV. However, I also know the rehabbed bathroom is what OUR bathroom looked like. Could it have been partially rehabbed? We also didn't have a privacy curtain in the bath area, that was mentioned as included in the rehab. I like the new rooms, but I think the old dresser has more space. I need space!!

It's enough time, trust me, it's HOT in those dryers! At the laundry area at the Hippy Dippy pool, there was one front-loading washer - not sure if it was HE because I wasn't looking for that, but it was front-loading with a sheet of instructions on it.


I wanna go back!!!!
