This is the cooler in the snack section in the food court.

These are from the cabinet by the counter in the gift shop. They did not show prices.

Hope this helps!

P.S. I think it's a good thing I don't drink. I couldn't afford it!
Thanks so much hope your having a wonderful vacation!!!

I check in on Thursday. I used the pass holder discount and was thinking of adding a night now. There is no way I can get the discount price is there? It has now expired. I planned on asking when I got there. Wanted to know what you guys thought.

Adjusting to the room size, as we usually stay at the Poly - but knew exactly what to expect following this thread and we are all settled in. The room is very clean, and we have our Mickey Mouse streamers in the window. Off to MK, but wanted to drop in real quick. To the other Poppers who are here now...have a magical day!
Happy you got your requests!! Have a fun stay!

Thank you MeMom for the pictures!
Men ....geesh ...

Advise you to call now to see if you can add on to your room reservation. I know from our experience that I've added on to my package reservation even after the code is expired ... Disney has allowed me to if rooms are still available under the promotion.

It would think it should work the same way with a passholder rate ... if rooms are still available ... try and let us know!!

Thanks again, Janet, for all of the information on this thread. I find myself going back again and again when I have a question. DH has been browsing with me (occasionally) and sends his thanks as well.
Agree with looking forward to MeMom's report.

And thanks for your "thanks" .... this thread has such nice support from DISers ... from providing info to sharing in each other's excitement. It's such a plus and makes it fun to keep up the thread.

I'm due to arrive on the 31st so I had inquired about this and since we won't get there until later... I figured I wouldn't want to go to a park that late and DTD might be a zoo with the locals... so here is what I was able to find out...
This is last year's schedule. I would think this year's would be similar but at least this could be a starting point??

POP Century Halloween Activities
Candy Apples
Trinkets
Trick or Treat bag decorating
Popcorn Hands
Coloring
Temporary Tattoos
Cookie Decorating
Lollipop Ghosts
Face painting (extra cost)
DJ 4:30-8:30pm
Haunted Maze dusk-9pm
Halloween Goofy 5:30-8pm
Costume Parade 7:45pm (kids walk around the pool area)
Trick or Treating 8-9pm
Ghost Stories 9-10pm

Just back from our adults only trip to CSR and one night at AKL. They were both beautiful resorts but my partner and i agree that we prefer Pop for many reasons, cost not being the only one.

That said, we booked a bounceback offer for next August 19-29 to take the kids back to Pop!

If only we could do something about the temperature and humidity that time of year it would be perfect.

Looking forward to heading back but not the long countdown. We are debating when to tell the kids. We may just tell them we are going somewhere next summer but not exactly when or where. Not sure yet but will for sure wait until May or June at the earliest to tell them we are going anywhere and only then so they have a chance to save some spending $

I'm not sure why everything is still so available for when we go, I'm looking right now and there are even 4 Le Cellier times available on the Thursday night! (good times, 5:30/6:30) We didn't go for any of the very popular character dinings or anything, but there still seems to be lots available for then.

Does anyone know (silly question-I know someone does) if there is a grace period when you can book a bounce back offer after you check out? I was unfaithful to POP for my honeymoon and went to CSR... Never again... I was definitely disappointed by CSR and missed my beloved POP!

Just a suggestion, but when you go online like you are going to make dinin reservations, don't put the name of a specific restaurant in. Instead, just put the date you want and then click dinner or lunch. The entire list of restaurants that are available for that meal, that day will pop up with the times available. My husband and I decided to add the DDP to our reservation a couple of weeks ago and to move over to Universal for a couple of days, so had to cancel some ADRs and rebook others. We'll be down there Oct 27th-Nov 4th and I was able to get everything I wanted switched around, by just plugging in the dates and meal (and not requesting a specific restaurant for a specific day). I saw several Chef Mickey ADRs, one for Ohana, several for Boma, Cape May, and Jiko, as well as some later ones or fairly early ones for California Grill. There was also several other fairly hard to get ADRs listed there.

Close of business on your check out day I believe. I know people have posted they tried the next day after they got home and was unable to do so. I do know they check during the phone call to make sure you are currently staying at a WDW resort, but as long as the computer shows you were checked in that same morning you should be fine.

Good Morning Everyone!!!!
Only two more days and I will be at POP...YEAH!!!!

I have a question for everyone...Do you know if I can get a AAA discount at the food court at POP? We have been able to save quite a bit for are trip even though we booked last minute and I am just trying to find small ways to continue to save. Thanks in advance.

i am checking in online in 2 days and have a question. i have heard varying reports about requests via online check in. some people say do NOT put anything in the request lines when checking in online because it will override whatever you originally requested. others have said to put your requests in again when you check in online. if i leave them blank, will that override the requests i already put in (meaning i will have no requests at all)? i made specific requests (3 or 4) when we booked over the phone in july, but i know online only gives you 2 choices. king bed is our biggest priority, then near transportation, then upper floor. we asked for the 80s as well. i know the more specific you are, the harder it is to accommodate, but i really want a king bed in the 80s section near the 90s parking lot.

so should i repeat my top requests when checking in online or leave them blank? thanks everyone!
