I am staying at Pop again this year JUST so that it is easier to get to the tie-dye cheesecake. My recommendation? Get it at breakfast and put it in your resort room fridge and then when you get back at night from the parks you have a delightful evening snack waiting for you. ..... I do that each night I'm there. Don't judge me!

Anyone know how late the pools are open this time of year at Pop? With shorter park hours, I see myself being able to actually have time to relax while I am there heehee.

Jumping aboard. We stayed at POP this past Jan/Feb and have planned our second family trip for this February 2013. Why change a good thing and stay else where right!

Sorry if these questions have been asked and answered but 235+ pages will take me forever to get through.

This time we booked a preferred room. I am wondering how to you go about asking for request?
We want closer to Classic hall and bottom floor and BF wants to be close to a smoking area.

I hope we have nice weather like last year too.

That just stinks! I had no idea this was going on! Does that mean you'll be refunded your money? Have you started looking at alternate flights? How stressful!

No judgement here!! I'm going to try your strategy with the King Cupcake. I keep hearing that they run out of them, so I'll get one in the morning and stash it in the fridge so I can try it later in the evening. Yum!

There's a couple of ways of doing this. You can call the reservation line if you booked directly through Disney and put in your requests with a Cast Member that way. If you went through a Travel Agent then your TA can put the request in for you. You can also do online check-in, but I'm hearing that occasionally there are problems putting in requests that way. I have a friend who's leaving in the next week and she finally gave up trying to do check-in online and finally called Disney directly because she wasn't getting the special requests pop up. I think probably the best way to go is to speak to a live person. Also there are some requests that aren't options when you check in online and I believe being near a smoking area is one of those options not listed. However, there is a DSA right outside the Classic Hall and if you've requested to be close to Classic Hall, you might be fairly close to that DSA. HTH!

Question - if I call and add my requests to my reservation, ie King Bed, higher floor, and then do online check in do my requests still stay attached to my reservation?

As homeschoolmomof4 suggests, call Disney directly and speak with a CM to have your request(s) noted (if you booked directly with Disney).

Preferred area choices are 50s, 60s, 70s ... of those areas ... 50s has a DSA area (near the fork to bdg 1 & 3, by the doghouse) and there is a DSA near the 70s area -- located at the far end of Classic Hall, close to the former Goofy POP jets area.

Please note: The two DSAs indicated on the map outside CLassic Hall and Petals Bar area are no more. Disney has made these areas non-smoking.

If you haven't already, review the 2012 map, you will be able to see the preferred areas (highlighted in yellow).

Really all of the preferred areas are very good, it's more of a preference for theming. You could request bldg 10 or 6 (70s) which is very convenient to Classic Hall and the DSA area and busing. Bldg 5 (60s) is good too). Bldg 1 (50s) you would be close and have the DSA nearby.

We did this in August ... as twice I tried to buy one towards the end of the day, so I went early one AM and saved it to later. As mentioned before, the KING is a snack credit on the DP.

Let's see, and not to leave out the the KING cupcake, and the chocolate cake with chocolate frosting with Mickey heads (my DD loves the cake)

and one of my all time favorites ... the chocolate croissants!!! I had one of these almost every morning .... bad I know but I figure I can just walk it off, there's a little of that in WDW.

I know Sandi answered you, just wanted to add they are situated in the 50s, 60s, 80s/90s areas by the pools ...it's $2.00 a pop ....Bring your own detergent to save a little $$.

Erin, do hope they resolve the issues to prevent a strike .. suggest for you to not even go there ... just keep thinking it WILL work out.

I was actually wondering the same thing. I have never done the online check in before but I was considering trying it for my upcoming trip. However, I have made some requests already. Not sure how that would work out!

Mine did in February. I made similar requests when I did online checkin to the ones I had made on the phone when I booked, but one of them wasn't an option. The CM when I checked in remarked how lucky I was to get all 3 of my requests (only 2 can be done when you checkin online), so they had to still be there. I don't know how easily they are seen or if it changes anything when you do online checkin, but I know my 3 that I made on the phone were all still on there.

Well, I'm one of those people who gets up and does the laundry at 6:00 a.m. There is rarely anyone else doing laundry at that time. I've only done laundry at Pop once -- at 6:00 while I'm out for a run (sure, I have stinky clothes after that, but I don't want to be breaking into theme park time!). I think there is a sign in the laundry facility that says how long the washers take to do a load, so I can time things well. When I put the stuff in the dryer, I go take a quick shower and get my Coke Zero. Then I'm done!

I noticed that people seem to do laundry while families are swimming. The laundry facilities are right near the pools.
