We are flying in so bringing milk, cream cheese, etc is not an option.
They don't sell bags of bagels. We pack a bag of bagels for each trip, actually, for an in-room breakfast as you're planning. We like peanut butter vs. cream cheese so we pack a jar of peanut butter.

We would stay in that section again FOR SURE

Just got home Saturday-was in room 5408. Noticed they had poured the concrete on half of the kiddie pool by the time we had left.

Agree! I was going to take the time to talk to someone about it but we were non-stop going when we were there so I will email them my thoughts on the menu changes. I did do a rather long survey (on a computer not face to face) at the MK about our dining experiences. For the question "What did you think of the healthy menu options" I picked "I wasn't looking for healthy options".

I was sad when they took away the frozen coke machine but I understood that it was because they were breaking down. I do NOT understand why they had to take away all the classic items off the dining menus.

Overall we had a great stay at Pop! Good bus service, great mousekeeping, and not the resort can control it but we had near perfect weather.

On Friday the POPulation of Lovebugs at POP was not so pleasant by the pool. And unfortunately I did have a few that managed to fly into my room at various times during the week when we would open the door to enter/exit. I definitely am NOT used to them! LOL!!

I booked this 260 days ago! So I understand how it feels to wait that long .

And we started a countdown calendar at 100 days to go.

So knowing that in 48 hours we will be walking around Tomorrowland just excites me to know end!!

When you feel like it'll never get here, I promise eventually it arrives

Ok! I'm trying to be prepared!! lol

Last year we were at All Star Sports at this exact week.
And for the life of me I don't recall seeing these bugs at the parks or the hotel. Except one night when I was standing on the balcony I saw a rather large bug shuddered and ran inside. Perhaps I wasn't looking for them cuz I hadn't heard of them before that trip (I booked only 3 weeks before we went, so I was more focused on tourning plan).

Anyway. Here's hoping they all fly away by time I get there on Wednesday!!

Hello everyone!

Just finished online check-in! DS, DH, and myself were at Pop in 2008 and loved the resort, but it rained the entire time we were there so we didn't get to enjoy the pools or even walk the resort grounds. It was in August during a tropical storm that settled over the Orlando area for the entire week. We are used to some rain every day during the summer months, but this was all day every day! I am hoping for better weather this time so I can really enjoy POP to the fullest!

Last year we stayed at the Beach Club which I loved also, but my DS16 said he actually preferred to go back to POP this time! I think he really liked the food court! Since it is just me and DS going this time POP seemed like a great choice.

Question: When I did online check-in, it showed that my DS did not have charging privileges even though I set up a pin number for him. Is this something I have to add at check-in or did I miss a step. I tried to go back and edit the info, but it still showed up as only myself having charging privileges.
