Happy that you had weathered the dance troupes and had a great time! Seems like Disney handled the additional crowds well in regards to the busing.

Even in the midst of computer issues, you still kept your sense of humor about it! Pretty cool ...


disney was great about it! at first we figured there was something going on and a bus driver did tell us on night two there was and that disney put them on for this event. but you know what they say about bus drivers! one night one was telling me we could resort hop and pool hop....hes like go over to aoa and use the pool. we had just been there the day before and i believe you needed your room key for it.

i figure theres no point in getting upset....i worked retail for ten yrs and getting angry never solves the issue at all.

Also, can someone tell me what will fit in the refrigerators? Will a half gallon of milk work? Thanks!
we had tons in our fridges....mind you two rooms we had two. we prob fit about 20 plus bottles of 500 mls water in there(lying down), and 2 four packs of yogurt and a huge milk( i call it 4 litres, you guys call it a gallon- or very close measurement wise). hubby had 12 cans of pepsi in with the milk and yogurt in one fridge alone. they really do hold a lot.



we journeyed over for family pics at aoa and i have to say(if i didnt already) they did an amazing job with that place! were dvc but the kids are desperate to stay there for a few nights now

Ok POP friends. I am beginning to plan my February 2014 trip. We love the POP. My dilemma is should we try the LM rooms at AOA? We walked over last year, LM wasn't open yet. It looks so far from the main bldg though. We have a 5 year old who would love those rooms. I'm so torn . Any thoughts?

My DH is more of a nigh owl than I am and was walking to the Food Court around 10pm on Weds night. As he was walking by the Bowling Pin pool he noticed a guy - hiding behind the bushes - with a camera taking pics of the teenagers in the pool!!!!! The guy didn't hear him walk up and stand beside him (DH wanted to get close enough to get a good description given the dark area he was in). He took off FAST as soon as he noticed DH!

He went straight to security and made a report. I can't get it out of my head. I guess it's the same as anywhere - be aware of you surroundings!
That's bad very scary, it's not easy to say what I would have done,; but he should have been tackled and held for security and banned from the resort for life. Those people don't belong around families who are just there to have a safe family vacation.

The rooms do seem a bit of a hike (especially bldg 8!), that said, if your princess really wants to stay in them, I say go for it! They are only young once. Ask for the bldg 7 lake view on the side closest to the lion king suites... the resort is so colorful and the attention to detail is all there. We explored the resort on our visit last August.

And since you love POP, it is an easy walk over the bridge to visit. Hopefully by Feb '14 the LM rooms will be included in discounts (under the current bounceback they are not).

The hair wrapping cart is open from 4pm until 10 pm.

The pool hours may vary depending on the time of your visit. There's also a difference between when the pool is officially open for use and when it is staffed by lifeguards. I think there are summer periods where it's allowed to use the pool at all hours; other times of year there will be an official opening and closing time.

...and then there are the unexpected pool closings for, uh, accidents.

Officially 7am-11pm (august) but we have been there when people are in at 6 am and long past 11pm (no lifeguards after hours) but POP is lenient about the use of the pools.

As jcarwash reminded me... I forgot to add that the hours do vary according to season, the 7am-11pm was in August.

I'm not sure on the exact time but it seems they get there early evening maybe 4pm. Seems they are there when we come back to the resort and sometimes we are back for the night around 4 or so. Where other times we are night owls.

Looks like I'm joining the POP thread I was originally booked at ASMu for May but after seeing the AP rates that came out, I'm saving by switching to Pop - and I'm so excited about it too!! Now I need to re-do all my resort research, and I hear there's tie-dye cheesecake to be had??
