Yesterday was perfect! A bit cool in the morning(50s), warm but not too hot in the afternoon. Forecast gets warmer as the week goes on.

No individual pizzas. Now they are French bread pizzas. Neither my DD or I cared for them. The tomatoe sauce was too spicey.

I really miss the chicken penne Alfredo!

I had a kids meal cheeseburger that was very good. Also had the design you own tacos that were very good. The adult portion was 4 tacos. Next time I'll get a kids.

My friend had the nachos. They were done with potato chips not corn chips. She seemed to like them but I wouldn't.

I love the excitement and anticipation of a new Disney trip.



Good morning, fellow Disney crazies!
I am taking a group of 140 second graders to Nashville Zoo today.
Don't tell anyone , but I'll be secretly pretending I am at Animal Kingdom.

Has the POP's laundry room gone cashless yet? I heard they were in the process of switching over all the laundry facilities in the Disney Resorts to a "cashless" system and payment would be with your KTTW card.

It would save me from packing a bag of quarters!

Yes, there is sprite zero but it it very limited. I only saw it at one of the four dispensers operating and two of the six are closed and it is daytime. Sometimes at night they only have two dispensers operating so it's a good chance it might not be available depending on which ones are closed.

Talked to my "friend" in mgt here and right now occupancy is in the 70% range... not too high for them.
I didn't ask, but I am wondering if their lower occupancy levels are why they have the cheerleading group here. He admitted that is VERY unusual for them but they didn't have any problems with them. They supposedly were pretty well behaved...a 'few' noisy ones but most were very good. Will be interested to see if that sets a precedent for them to start having groups like that stay here??!! Hope Not! But I guess we will see!

I am super excited that we will be making our first trip to Disney and Pop this September! I have loved going through this thread and reading all the great info everyone has provided. It has made me feel great about my decision to book at Pop. We are getting a preferred room and our only request is a king bed, otherwise I'm just happy to be at Disney. Can't wait!

Hi team Pop! Quick question...I've stayed at Pop numerous times but I've never needed to do laundry. This trip I'm heading somewhere else right from Disney, so I figure ill need to do a load of wash at the end of the trip. Does anyone have any specific laundry info like...

1. How much are the machines?
2. Do the machines accept credit cards or should i plan on bringing change with me?
3. I saw on the main page that you can purchase detergent in the laundry rooms. Anyone know the price of this, and if you can use credit cards, or if again, I should have quarters?

Thanks!

only 3 weeks till I get to go back! not too happy about the change in menu recently... does anyone know how the "build your own salad" currently works? one trip I went to pop they built your salad in a large bowl and tossed all the ingredients together with the dressing to make sure it was well mixed. another trip they just piled it all in a "to go" container. I know the ingredients are all the same but It seems to taste much better when they take the extra mile to toss the salad before plating it!

I just walked over to the laundry room in front of the bowling pin pool since it is fairly close to my room.

Wash is $2 and dry is $2. Machines still take quarters. There is a bill changing machine in the laundry room. The laundry product dispenser had tide, wisk, color safe bleach, and downy fabric softner..ea product is a dollar and it takes quarters. And as of right now there is no way to use a credit card or KTTW card. HTH.

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

The one I saw them make for someone was just ingredients put into a take out container-not mixed. I had one many years at POR and I thought the chicken was grilled chicken. At Pop the chicken is the same spiced chicken they use for the tacos.
