thanks Goofy! Not too bad of a markup... 1/2 gallon for the same cost as a gallon would be here! LOL! I was expecting to hear it was around $5 or $6!

I thought it was ridiculous as well, but that is what I was told. It was turned to max & we changed plugs to see if that would make a difference. It didn't, but they did bring us one of the "older" models that we used to rent that did function as a refrigerator.

We are having the best time. This being a combo Anniversary/Valentines Day gift is the best. LOVE IT!

We returned from our trip Sunday. It was such a bitter sweet time. I was sad to leave. As much as I looked forward to seeing my yorkie again, I wanted to enjoy the time some more. The weather was a bit cooler towards to end but it's Florida. It was better then Jersey. So now I have my pics to remember the trip. Now looking forward to September's trip.

Hey everyone!

Barring any flight delays I should be at POP by 11am tomorrow (Weds) !

So excited for my trip!
I'm going to be decorating my door and window.
If anyone is there and finds my room please say Hi!

Going to request a 1st floor in Building 1 or 10.
I know it's not guaranteed by going to ask anyway.

I packed last night after work.
I have alot of running around to do today.
Can't wait to get there

See you tomorrow POP!

Well we are talking about POP here...

Love the 60s as well. Yes it is possible for a quiet room! The preferred areas in the 60s do not face the main pool which will help with not having the pool noise. Request an upper floor as those are generally quieter. We like the 4th floor for that.. also, we have had the end rooms, and they are very quiet.

The other preferred areas include the 50s and 70s which also offer nice room locations.

Welcome back! Yes, we know the same Disney blues when the trip is at the end. Go thru your pix (hey you can share some here..) and get into planning mode for Sept..

Thanks for "popping" back here with news of a trip back to the world! Sure that your DL trip was amazing, one day hope to experience it myself. And know all about the changes that go along with planning a trip to Disney ... there is a thread here on the DIS for this.

Nice to "see" you back here! As it seems you are going back in the second full week of December, historically it is usually available around that time... Guess we will see all have to wait to see what happens with summer discounts and if FD is included (and if FD is offered at the values). It might be indicative of what we will may expect for the fall.

But we were so tired from an early flight. I asked if our room was ready, and she felt so sorry for us that she found us a different room (but in the same requested section) that was ready. It was such a great start to a wonderful stay!

I also noticed that the cm's in the food court were friendly and patient despite some rude guests. Some of the cms were a little slow and sort of unconcerned at the food stations, but I they were nice .

I also thought the cms in the gift shop and at bell services were particularly Disney-like. I love the moderates, but I can tell you, these cms were amazing and overall very wonderful.
Welcome back! And thanks for the great review. Last summer our rooms were not ready and the CM worked to find us the 2 rooms we needed (and connecting) as we were so tired from traveling on a train for 20+ hour... In the same bldg too.. We also think the CMs at POP are terrific as well.

JanetB, you will be interested to know that we are staying at Pop for one night next month. Mark has a business trip and we get to play in Disney for a day. I didn't want to spend a lot of money since his company is paying for it and Pop was our cheapest option.

Hello everyone as you can see I am going back to the Pop again this December. I am so excited since the last time I was there was the summer on 2010.
I understand about some of the new stuff...Can anyone tell me about anything else is new. Like the buses do they share with AOA? Is the new TV and stand smaller then the big intertaiment center (misspelled) I will be in a wheel chair and when I was there last time the table and chairs was a problem for me every night to plug up the scooter. Do you think I should put in a request to remove the table and 2 chairs.
