So it is with a happy heart that I can say were coming back to POP April 6-14!!!!

So excited to be planning my next trip with ya'll!

5 months until Tie Dye Cheesecake!!!!!
We stayed for a quick trip at ASMu in July but didn't like it at all. It is amazing how well POP is laid out with its theming, etc. The loyalty of its guests is amazing too! We went back to POP 2 months later and stayed for 2 weeks. Everyday I was at ASMu I said "I miss Pop". But in Sept it was great at Pop! We did MNSSHP as well and had alot of fun.We will be back next year in Sept as well.

Trekker!! POP is amazing ... do you think people overlook it as its in the value class?? As you mentioned it has great theming, compact layout, great CMs, great food court, great value and it gives you a nice warm feeling when you step into the lobby. Perhaps the nostaglia factor is the deciding difference. We also stayed at ASMu on our first visit, it was nice, but once we stayed at POP, it's been no turning back.

for a 2 week vacation! And to be able to go to MNSSHP is fantastic!! My DD may have to be out of school we can go to that party. She's been to the Pirate & Princess party though and it was a blast!

I agree with everything you said about POP! I was really considering staying at a Mod for the first time this upcoming trip, but I decided that I love POP too much to try another resort, at least for now. I probably will someday stay in another resort (I would like to stay at AKL with a savannah view one day), but I don't think of POP as a Value, I think of it as a great place to stay!

Question My FIRST EVER visit to Disney!

And we are super excited. My husband is currently deployed and in his absence, I am bringing my sister to assist me in the care of my daughters, Abby and Emma. Abby is celebrating her 7th birthday. We have three character meals planned, the first beginning at Cape May @ 7:40am Friday morning. Should I drive, take a bus, cab? It looks like its supposed to rain on Friday too which I hope is just typical Florida weather, rain a bit and then stop. Which park should we go right after breakfast that is closer to Cape May? What's rope drop? Bus, car or cab? I'm so overwhelmed but cannot wait! We will arrive tomorrow evening around 6pm. SUPER EXCITED!!!

stephanieaustin77! What fun you will have on your first trip to Disney!

Buses do start running early ... you can take a bus to Hollywood Studios and switch to a bus for the Beach Club, or walk the path over to the resort from the front of Hollywood Studos. I've never done this, and you may not want to with 2 young children. There is a boat from HS to the Epcot resorts but not sure if it runs that early. Other DISers will certainly know.

With a car, you can drive to the Beach Club, but realize you cannot leave the car at the resort and go into a park. Which means driving to Epcot or Hollywood Studios (which are the closest parks) and parking in those lots (it's not a huge issue). If you do intially take a bus to the BC, both parks are accessible by foot or boat from the Beach Club. For Epcot the boat brings you to the back of World Showcase (International Gateway).

Rope drop is getting to a park before it opens, so you can see any pre-opening ceremonies and enter the park when the cast members pull away the rope and the park officially opens for business.

Thank you to your DH (and your family) for his service to our country.

Have a wonderful time ... do ask for your "First Visit" and Happy Birthday buttons if you do not recieve them at check in. Sometimes guests can receive some pixie dust in the parks or at restaurants so do have your celebrations noted in your dining reservations as well as your room reservation -- and wear your buttons!!

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

You don't want to walk with 2 kids from HS, it not a short walk. I have done it alone very late at night like midnight because the boats were having issues.

If there is going to be rain I would just drive then drive to your park choice.

I've always wanted to stay in one of those rooms right next to the Hippy Dippy Pool so I booked a preferred pool view and requested the ground floor. I just think it would be so neat to walk right out your door and be at the main pool.

Has anyone ever stayed in one of those rooms? I'm wondering, too, if preferred pool view might include the rooms that overlook the baby pool and the landscaped area closer to the lake?

I will be there in a PPV room in 7 days. I believe PPV rooms only over look the main pool.

We have stayed at Pop several times but always just take what ever room they give us. We will be there in December and splurged and got a preferred pool room too. I would also love the first floor.

According to the room map in post #1 of the FAQ, the rooms overlooking the kids pool are preferred view vs. preferred pool view. Preferred pool view rooms are the rooms from the icon section toward Classic Hall and look at the Hippy Dippy Pool. There are also different room rates for preferred view and preferred pool view.

So sorry those blues have finally hit you... BUT, the well known cure for the Disney blues is having another trip planned ... so, get crackin'!

I don't believe so, just the regular 20 oz. (of course you have the refillable mug option too).

And for your first ever upcoming POP stay!
