I don't know for sure about this year, but I have never had issues with them being rude or a problem with POP. If you show up to the food court at the same time as a large group it can make it take a little longer obviously, but they even get separate buses so they don't cause back-ups for the other guests. I wouldn't worry too much.

Thanks for putting my mind at ease!

Odd question: Lets say I wanted to buy a balloon to put in my room because (I want the A/C to stay on) I like balloons and they are fun... Do they sell balloons at everything pop or will I have to import one from one of the parks?

I don't remember ever seeing balloons at Everything POP. Could be wrong, but I think you would have to get it from a park or DTD

Just booked our first stay at POP 10/19 - 10/29 after much research including reading much of this thread. Thanks for all of your help. I'm sure I'll post a few questions in the next 6 months.

You will have to get one in the parks.

Just home from 8 nights at Pop....3rd trip there and less than impressed this time. Seems like it's showing its age? Room smelled musty, bed was lumpy and the room was actually dirty when we checked in! I wasn't going to make a huge deal about it....nothing my Clorox wipes couldn't handle. I was surprised to come back one night and find a bag of trash on the floor! I left mouse keeping a tip each day and sometimes we would come home to a towel animal, but most times not. That was a huge disappointment to my girls. Now to top it off, I left a necklace in the room.....I know exactly where......and I'm so sad about this! I've called and they say they'll look, but the reality is, I'm sure it's long gone.

My mom wants to know if hot water is available.
She is very fussy with her tea and wants to bring her own tea bags.
Also, is honey available in little packages? or should we order some with are wegoshop groceries?

Thanks!

I bring my own tea bags, too. There is hot water at the beverage stations. Someone else asked the question about the honey back on page 148; the question and answer are below.

I need it for my hot tea. I can't stand Disney coffee.

Oh no, that is not good! We have stayed once at POP and had a great experience. I really hope we do come across what you all experienced when we go there in July.

Last time we where at POP we stayed at the 80's building. Even though this building is technically furthest away from the main building, there is a short cut to the buses and dinning which was really fast for us, a three minute walk from the rubric cube! There is also the computer pool in front of the 80's building.

We were in the 60's....4159 (if you stay there, look for my necklace? Lol). The view was beautiful, right at the lake. I just get the impression that things are sliding. Hubby has loved it there, but after this trip, he says never again. He says time for vacation club?!
