Hi there! Not too positive on that one. I pass hippie dippy everyday on the way back and have swam in it once but I don't recall seeing the kiddie pool.

We prefer a higher view, but it's preference. We also like top floor because no one is above us pounding on the floor at 3am. Some people like bottom to avoid stairs/elevator. We think it looks nicer from the top. Just about a week for us... So readyyyyyy!

Of the 2,880 rooms at Pop only 30 are standard king rooms. There are 120 king accessible rooms.

9 more days! *Single digit dance *

First time making a location request. We requested 50's top floor. Last time we stayed at Pop we didn't make any room requests and ended up the first "non-preferred" room in the building. We actually had a shorter walk to the elevator than the pref rooms on the end

It's our 6th stay at Pop, and so far we've always been in the 50's. I figure at this point, why mess with what we've loved in the past!

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

King beds are not an extra cost. It's not a bookable category, just a request that you can make. (It is bookable for disabled guests.)

The non-king rooms have two full size beds. They are not queen sized.

There are always a few people out for walks, runs, or smokes, so you won't be totally alone. It's nice and quiet though. Very peaceful. Enjoy!

Now that AoA is complete is it possible to walk all the way around the lake?
Thanks!

Anyone go to the Chip & Dale Campfire at Ft Wilderness while staying at Pop?

We have it planned for our arrival day. We'll have a car and were planning on just driving over (since the buses are not really an option).

How long does it take to get there? Is it feasible? I really think it is something my kids would love!

Since you have a car the trip will be easy -- I'd expect about a 15 minute drive from Pop to Fort Wilderness.

This is moot since you have a car, but it is possible to use WDW transportation between Pop and Fort Wilderness, for example, you can take the MK bus and then take the boat to Fort Wilderness.

New coffee?

I read on the AKL thread that Pop had switched from Nescafe.
What is the new coffee? Do you like it?
Is it much better than Nescafe?
Does anyone know what other resorts have switched?
