I agree with other posters. Lakeview in 50's, 60's or 70's are all great locations.

Just got home from week at Pop. Stayed 60 by Lake 5131. Not too far. Room getting a little worn but had great time. Never been there end of June July 4 th time. Expected more crowds maybe rain helped but hardly waited for anything too long. Discovered something new. mugs bought in parks for 5 dollars are refillable at resorts. Great deal

So I am ended up at POP for a few days...I am shocked at how Dead it is considering it is Fourth of July week!!!
I was able to book a room last minute (like as in to check in the next day!!) with a great discount (60% off)!!! The food court has been empty when I've gone there to refill my mug. The one section that makes the nachos wasn't even operational two days (don't know about today?) And when I called and requested to extend my stay by a day it wasn't a problem at all!!! Didn't have to change rooms or anythig!! They even gave me my same great discounted room rate! Waahoo!
Saw something interesting tonite though. I'm in bldg 1. when we got back to the hotel around midnight, there were two Orange co sheriff cars & 4 officers in front of our bldg with a gentleman. Shortly thereafter, a third showed up. After that they started taking pics of a guy...his face from the front and profile pics. They were here for probably at least an hour and a half. But anyway...it was very interesting to wonder was going on!!!

As in that's what they're for, or you were just able to get away with it?

My daughter just got back Saturday after a week at POP and she said the same thing. She said the hotel seemed about 1/2 full, she visited AoA and said it seemed the same. She said her and DH would go to the parks at rope drop, leave about 2 and come back to a different park around 5 or 6pm. She said on even the big ticket items, they were able ride them 3-4 times each with little (15 min max) or no wait at every park (eventhough touring plans showed 9's every day or their trip)
They were there for 6 days/5 nights and on the last day they didn't even go to a park, just hung out at DTD since they had been to every park 3 times each. She said they have never had so much relaxation/hotel time on any of their past Disney World trips but they LOVED it!

Thinking they had so many rooms available that it's best to deeply discount vs stay empty.

I was told by Disney cashier when I bought the mug "it is only refillable at your resort"- end quote. If I wanted to get away with it I would have brought one of the ten that I have at home with me. Lol. Maybe she told me bad info but I refilled right in front of dp at Pop snd was not told any different. Can anyone confirm?

DD is a CM and that is a deal they are offering to CMs right now. There is limited availability but POP is so dead, we were able to book a room with that discount on one day's notice! How crazy is that??!! CMs can pretty much get 50% off any time...but they increased it to 60% with limited availability. If you can make it work with where you want to stay, it is a great deal!!

This is accurate!! Whoever told them that the mug they bought in the park for $5 is refillable at the resort is definitely mistaken!! Those are not refillable at all and are strickly a one time use sovenier mug. I have purchased a few of them in the past simply because we liked the pattern on the mug. If guests are refiilling them at their resort then 'Yes, they are getting away with it' so to speak because that was not the intent of those mugs. HTH!!

I have a question.....

Do they play movies outside in the evening? If so, what location?
I have a preferred room booked, but I would like to avoid being right by the movie.
