Sorry to brag with excitement but my wife and I are just 2 days away from checking in (less than that now if you count hours!) We're so excited! I just called the resort to request a king-bed room, so we'll see if we luck out with that request.

POP does have a nice play and splash area. How special it will be to show your little guy it.

And you may be pleasantly surprised to on your room location... and sometimes we end up finding a new favorite area. Enjoy!

At Disney we can ALWAYS be kids!!!

Having the lake was excellent and a nice place to go walking. We crossed over to AoA to check it out.Proximity to Epcot, DTD and TL was excellent! I think I may be abandoning the All Stars for POP more often.

I got lucky and for the cost of a Standard got a Preferred. Never had to wait long for the bus. All in all, awesome pre-b-day trip!
So happy you had a great stay! And congrats on the upgrade. A nice birthday present for you!

Hi and welcome to the POP Century FAQ thread!!

Le'ts see... take a walk on the path bordering the lake (appropriately named Memory Lane) and besides enjoying the view of the lake and AoA, along the path are signs depicting facts/trivia about the different decades. A fun and entertaining read.

Check out the lobby area and the wall timeline for all the memorabilia displayed in shadow boxes …toys, fads, and info from the 1950s thru the 1990’s. Stroll around the resort and get up close to the giant icons…lots of photo ops!!... Check out the juke box song titles, ditto for the 8 track tapes ... fun reading …

Hustle over to the lobby area for the Hustle …. Performed daily at 6pm by CMs (everyone can join in!) Outdoor twister game is located in the 70s area. Many fun games and activities at the Hippy Dippy pool for the kids.

Hope you end up liking POP as much as we all do! Stick around ... lots of good info shared here.

Does any one know if they try & place you in the same sections from your past History stays? I'm asking because the few times I've stayed at Pop they have placed us in the same section. (70's Building) We really like that section. I'm not sure if I should just request the same section or be surprised when I get there?? I really don't want lake view cause quite honestly. We like being close enough to the pool & main lobby/food court areas.

I don't know. But we have always been placed in the 60s facing the lake. Once building 5 and the past 3 years building 4. To me it don't matter which building. But we really like the 60's section. WE have always done a request.

We have always requested 50s Bldg C Lake View. In 3 trips we have been in the same room twice and the one next to it once. I will let you know in a couple of weeks if it happens again.

Not sure ... it's possible .... but if an area/section is important to you, suggest adding it to your reservation....it can't hurt.

For us, the first 2 times we requested 50s we never got it ... go figure the time we were placed there we didn't request it!

But the last 2 times we requested 60s and received it.

We requested the 60's before, and loved it. We requested it again for our October trip so here's to hoping! We love facing the lake, so quiet but still not a far walk. 103 days to go!!!

It certainly has not been the case for us. I have stayed in every section except for Lady/Building 1. We've been in some sections multiple times, probably Tramp the most. Only once in the Computer building. We have wanted to try out different sections, so we haven't cared about requests other than connecting rooms. Thankfully, we have always gotten those. We all make a guessing game as to which building we'll get on a new trip. Nobody can pick the same section, and we really like it when one of the little girls 'wins'! Now that we're down to just Lady left, though, I might make that request in the near future.
