Have a GREAT time! I love May in WDW - the flowers, the "not surface of the sun" heat, lower-ish crowds. Enjoy enjoy enjoy!

As for me - 86 days and (not so patiently!!) counting!

We started this countdown at 302 days out so....we are getting there, at least!

Quick question as I don't have time to read back....How does one get a coffee maker at the Pop these days. I can't find any swaps. Thanks!

I have always found it helps to word your request to make it easy to figure out why you are making that request. Close to bus stop, close to parking, close to lake, etc.

Yes, a preferred pool view is an upgrade from a preferred room. I believe it's about a $5 per night upgrade.
Okay, we upgraded to preferred pool view, but I can't read your map. When I open it on my computer it's too small to tell what is preferred, etc. Anyone else have a larger image of that map???

So preferred pool view, is that at the Hippy Dippy Pool or are there other preferred pool view areas? We've always just done a standard room, but we got a pin for free dining for our dates this week and it made us change from AoA which is now my favorite resort, lol, so we decided to do the preferred room. Just wondering what to expect.

Preferred Pool View rooms face the Hippy Dippy Pool -- basically the front half of buildings 4 & 5 in the 60's section. Standard Pool View are the rooms facing the computer pool (in the 90's buildings) and the bowling pin pool (in the 50's section).

Arrow Cashless laundry

I saw something in a previous post about cashless laundry and am wondering if Pop has switched over or just AofA. It would be great to just swipe my card and not have to carry around all those quarters! Checking in on June 16. Haven't stayed at Pop for 2 years and I can't wait!

No POP laundry facilities are not cashless like AoA's. Sorry...was just there last week and checked on this for other posters. There is a change machine that takes $1 & 5's. Another poster advised sometimes it is out of change though...but you could always get change at the front desk rather than packing a bunch of heavy change. That's what I would do, but to each his/her own.
