In response to fans in the room, I got the idea to bring small fans to put on our nightstands and they worked out great! We drove so they did not take up much room in our trunk. I used an extension cord to plug one of them in as there was no outlet directly behind one stand (we had a king room). They came in handy when we were hot and tired from the parks! Husband needed his to sleep at night, but I did fine with his second hand wind and AC! Hope this helps someone else!

In the final planning/shopping/packing stages of our trip There have been several mentions about the lack of storage in the room, specifically in the bathroom. Some suggest bringing over the door shoe holders or those collapsible hanging shelf units. It's just myself & DD9 so won't need a ton of storage, but prefer to not live out of my toiletry bags. I've looked at pictures on the POP picture thread and on the POP fan website. There are pictures of the closet area having one long shelf only and some pictures showinig the long shelf and then a lower half shelf. Could that possible be in an accessible room only and not in a standard room? There also looks to be a small shelf at the bottom of the mirror. Just trying to be organized (don't like coming back to a messy room!) and comfortable. Bringing a small hamper to put in the closet area to contain dirty clothes. Mainly wondering about the sink area and having room on the counter to get ready. Thanks!

There is the long shelf at the top of the closet and the ledge below the mirror on the sink. I've never seen a lower half shelf so I'm assuming that is for accessible rooms only.

There is an ironing board in the room. Unfold it and put it next to the sink under the coat rack. Now you have a huge shelf to use!

The sink area has enough counter top space for toiletries. I keep 3 toiletry bags on the counter with plenty of room to spare.

For the closet area, I'm bringing a 6-drawer hanging organizer for my two boys to use. I'm packing wire dry cleaning hangers for DH & I to hang our clothes. There are only three drawers in the dresser which is suitable for underware, PJs and bathing suits. I put misc. stuff on the wire shelf above the closet rod.

There's plenty of room if you're organized and prepared.

Regarding the hamper, I just pack a large reusable bag (similar to the Ikea bags) to use as a hamper. Makes it easier to carry to the laundry room.

This is a great tip! Don't know why I never thought of it.

thanks

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO. what a ride!

If you have kids put there clothes in zip lock bags. We go for a extended period and those 3 draws just aren't enough. But if you can store some clothes in bags in the suitcase the come out wrinkle free.

Has anyone requested a king bed and had that request granted?

Yes! I requested it for my stay two weeks ago and got the coveted king bed! I had to double check at check in and they had not granted the request, but after the CM calling "the back office" and the staying on hold for what seemed liked forever, the king room was ours! Best of luck to you!

My daughter and DH are there now (checked in Monday) to celebrate their 1st anniversary. They requested a King bed, Tramp Building, lake view, high floor and they were granted all of their request! Now for the bad news. lol The room is a handicap room with a roll in shower. My daughter turned on the shower and let it run to warm the water, she left the bathroom for a couple of minutes to go and get her pjs and when she came back into the bathroom, it was flooded! The water had run out all over the floor. It was after midnight (they had just come in from magic hours). There was no mousekeeping available so the front desk ask if they would be willing to move.
With that being said they are now in the 90's disk building in room 9303 right across from the computer pool. They do still have a king bed and she said that they really like the new area. She said that it is a little secluded but really alot closer to the bus stop and the food court. She said that the room seems newer than the room they started with in the Tramp building. She doesn't know if it is because it was remodled later than some of the others or if it is because that section is not requested/utilized as much as some of the others. Anyway, both of their rooms have had a king bed and she has really liked both rooms they have had. She said they have both been extremely clean and mousekeeping and all the CM's have been GREAT!
We have also requested a King bed at POP the past 2 trips we have taken and stayed there and got it both times, once in August and once in December.

I had read here earlier about fans being available so when we got to our room I called but was told there were no fans. I don't know if she meant there were none available or if they don't have fans. Anyway, maintenance came and lowered our thermostat since we couldn't get it below the preset 68.

We had a preferred pool view but don't know if we'll do that again. Loved walking out of my room to the pool but, as had been mentioned here, there was a lot of noise. Due to thunderstorms/rain almost every night, the pool ended up closing early most nights so thankfully it wasn't an issue for us.

No problem with buses. With one exception, I don't think we ever waited more than 15 minutes. Mears buses picked us up 3 times. The resort didn't seem crowded by any means but the parks were packed!
They do have box fans. They may have all been requested already, though I tend to doubt it because few people know about them. They brought ours in May 10 minutes after we called to request one. But sometimes you have to go directly to the front desk at Pop to ask for things. In May I had whoever answered the phone lie to me twice about getting extra hangars and the next day the assistant manager retrieved them for me personally (and he was very annoyed it happened, too.) He told me sometimes when things you request (like hangars--or I would imagine, fans) aren't where they're supposed to be, some staff doesn't bother to look for them, though they are supposed to. So it helps to be very direct about what you want there.
