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?

Thanks jcarwash you explained the difference well.

HappyGal .. Pref pool view is a way to guarantee yourself right where you want to be ...FYI, in August we were in Bldg 4 (playdoh), 2nd floor and right around the corner from the elevator ...as close to Pref Pool view as we can be staying standard. The 60s location is great.

Can the beds be pushed together? The kids like to pile in bed with us on vacation and double beds by themselves are so small.
Thanks!!

We stayed there a couple of years ago and I do not think you can move the beds.

That's correct ... unfortunately the beds are on permanent pedestals and are not moveable (handicap accessible rooms are the exception).

We ended up booking 2 rooms so we can spread out and have 2 bathrooms!! It ended up being $600 less than AoA suites.
We're super excited!!!

This is exactly why we were at POP in August and not tempted to try the suites .. it was about $150 more to stay at AoA. We just liked the idea of 4 regular beds... plus we love POP! We requested and received connecting rooms so it was nice to be able to spread out between the 2 rooms (which was good, as we had 5 females!

When we stayed there a couple of weeks ago, we were able to move one of the beds to the wall.

I can't wait to get back to POP! We stayed there in May 2011, this year we stayed at OKW, and in 2013 we are booked 5/9-5/19 at POP again. OKW was a beautiful resort and the room amenities were luxurious, of course, but we actually left saying that we couldn't wait to stay at POP again. I need those Mickey waffles at the crack of dawn to get me going!

Magic Express question

We are arriving at POP on October 31; my last trip to Disney was 1981. So looking forward to experiencing Disney with my niece, nephew and sister-in-law. My question is about The Disney transportation. We are booked for a character breakfast at Akershas at 8 am on Saturday. The first page of this board gives you information of getting to other Character breakfasts but not Epcots. Will we be able to use ME to get here? If so what time should we be in line to get the bus? How long will it take us to walk to Akershas?
Thanks.

When we were there in August believe the BB dates for FD next year are Aug 18th to sept 26th. You do not have to upgrade to the regular DP. Do not know if the BB will still be FD when you are there in November but fingers crossed.

Pop is so much fun! We love the food court and Mickey waffles and the chocolate croissants, etc.! Plus we love to people watch We missed the food court when we stayed at OKW. You have a nice long vacation planned! Happy planning!!

Thanks.
Take the Epcot bus and allow at least an hour before your ADR. Suggest getting to the bus stop by 6:45 am. From the front of Epcot it will be approx a15 minute walk to get to akerhaus.
