Yes, you can make the request when you book or during online check in. If you do online check in, it lists the five decades (1950s - 1990s) as choices. Should you want to be more particular, like request a certain building in a particular decade, you should make that request by phone -- either at booking or later.

Great thanks!! It's already booked. I booked by phone. Is there a better choice over another?

It's really a matter of opinion. Here is a link to the resort map that also shows the different rate classifications. http://i962.photobucket.com/albums/a...oriesFINAL.jpg

I always reserve a standard room at Pop; paying for a preferred, pool, or preferred pool view is not anything I would pay for, but plenty of people do and have very valid reasons for doing so. I prefer a "lakeview" room and like to have a first floor room. The decade section is less important to me. I have had rooms in all three buildings of the 1950s section and in Building 6 of the 1970s. They were all fine.

Take a look at the resort map and see what appeals to you. When my DD was little, she loved to be by Lady, so the 1950s section was great. Now, she likes lakeview and doesn't care about the decade.

You can call anytime before arrival to make a room request. The one thing I'd caution against is getting your hopes/expectations so attached to a particular section/building that, if your request is not met, you're totally bummed. It's vacation and chances are that you'll not spend all that much time in your resort room to make its location all that important.

I tried to send you a PM abit ago, but your box was full!
I was going to give you a heads up about the menu change!
I figured I'd wait to see if anyone there noticed. Otherwise, once I got there and saw all of the actual changes I'd start posting them. I'll actually have my laptop this trip, so I can take and upload pics for the thread if you'd like!
jcarwash and stitchlovestink... thank you, you are both very sweet .... and thanks to Sandi as well -- who sent her good wishes to me via text.. . Very busy with life, my son was home for a visit, etc. I did miss the POP but knew it was in good hands with you all.

and yes stitchlovestink, would absolutely love to have you post pictures!!

So this got me thinking, we all love POP, but what are your reasons that you love POP so much more than the other values, and maybe even all of the other resorts as well!?
Theming;
The Vibe, energy and fun atmosphere
The friendliest CM's
Having the lake (and AOA over the bridge!)
Great transpo

They took away the yummy chicken alfredo, chili dog, among other things. The burger was still very good and fresh though!
Hopefully new favorites will be made....change can be good!

Both pools are fine, and are themed to the decade(s). It somewhat depends if you have a preference for the 50s or 80s/90s theming. We stayed in both areas and like both pools. We probably prefer the 50s theming a bit more.

The kiddie pool was scheduled to be closed through April 26, but I have not seen a report that it is open.

Pop Century rooms were last refurbished in 2010.
