They are fairly firm... What seems crazier is how variable the pillows are. We have one super puffy/firm one and a very soft one.... We DO have bugs in/outside our room. Took out two very big spiders and another beetle looking bug our first night and there was more out the door (including what looked like a cockroach). Shortly after we got back I heard a CM with a radio out there so maybe someone called it in... Lol! So we've been sticking a towel under our door at night and didnt see any yesterday... Hopefully no new visitors today either but we will see. We are on level 1, building 5 facing the lake. There have been an odd number of flies but nothing crazy, just that I've noticed them here and there when I don't at home. Wasn't thinking about it until I noticed them so its not like I was looking for an issue or anything. Food court has been FILTHY, but I think that's more the guests then the CMs. AoA seemed much better & tastier this morning for breakfast but I like different things... Had the veggie naan sandwich with spinach, paneer & cauliflower that was wonderful!

He wasn't going to do anything but my wife insisted he call for medical help. He reluctantly did while rolling his eyes and never getting off his chair. My nephew lost one tooth, another was loose and he needed stitches in his lip.

Don't depend on the lifeguards to watch or help your kids.
Sorry to hear about the poor little guy! But, I second that! Not that that I have had a poor experience with them but it's our responsibility as parents to watch our kids. I like that the life guards are there but I only depend on them for anything I "might miss" with 3 kids & 2 adults, we are out numbered but we watch them like hawks as best we can. Parents watch your kids in the pools, it only takes a second.

I have request a king room. If I am lucky enough to get one, are there electrical outlets for both night stands?

No, I am pretty sure (99.8%) there is only an outlet for the night stand that has the clock radio. But the clock will be plugged into another outlet (like behind the bed, I think...one that is hard to reach. It's behind a piece of furniture).
Thanks for posting this! Since DD is going this trip we will definitely have more stuff to charge so I need to throw a charging strip in the suit case this time! By myself, there are enough outlets, but with her things too, we will definitely run short!

Thanks for the response! I think we will be bringing a strip as well!

How can I find the calendar showing the movies that will be shown at POP? I've tried multiple places and can't find one. And, yes, I've used google.

Hi Cindy I see we will be there the same time! I check in the day before you.
To be a little more specific. There are four double plug outlets in the king rooms...one over the nightstand, one under the table or by the table leg (that's the one I plug my ecv into), one in the lower middle section of the wall (which is wall that divides the room from the bathroom) on the far side of the bed, and the one by the sink (the hairdryer is plugged into this one but you can easily unplug it!) I have to plug in a couple of medical devices to recharge and a cell phone and an extra phone battery, the camera battery, and the ecv, of course. This is travelling solo! And some of those chargers have larger plugs that block the second plug from being able to be used. So I will definitely need a charging strip for DD's stuff! And the one on that one wall is a really 'bad' location because you literally have to lay your item on the floor (unless it's a wall unit) and I always worry about it getting stepped on because there is just no where to put it. Unless you have 6ft or more cord to take it to the other nightstand, that the only thing I could think of. But I'm glad you mentioned this because we will definitely need that Charging strip!!

Well I was very happy. That pop has a long time luggage storage room. I thought I was going to have to get a room for our luggage for the 5 days we go on the dream. There will already be 7 of us in the van. Not sure how much more luggage we can add. But I can tell you my luggage for 4 for 17 days would not be fitting in the van.
