Hi everyone ! Here we go thread # 7! Thank you Janet ! I already have a question too! I was just oogling the Pop menu over at Allears and noticed that the burritos are now listed as being served until 10pm in the Specialty Shop and the Mom's Night Out are also listed below that and until 10pm. Now before the burritos were only served during lunch from what I've heard. Anyone know if they are offered for dinner now as well? Thanks!

13 days 3 hours and 22 minutes until we leave for our first stay at the Pop! We try to go every year (usually in Dec), but we've never stayed at Pop!
Thanks Janet for the great thread! I have gotten so much info from everyone!
We are surprising my daughter at her 13th birthday party and telling her we are leaving after the party! She has no clue! She thinks we are going in Dec again!
We have dinner reservations at the castle for her actual bday! And we are going to MNSSHP for the first time!
Sooooo excited! It's hard to keep everything a secret!!

Can anyone confirm this? Is there shower gel? I'm getting conflicting reports on another website and I would like to know for sure. One less thing to pack cause I can't stand showering with the bar soap! The less weight in my suitcase means more gifts to buy for our 19 month old granddaughter! Just 3 more weeks!!!

You are too kind! I'm helped out by what everyone brings to the thread about POP. It's a shared effort and a fun one.

Looking forward to hearing about upcoming trips and offering help where I can.
Sandi, you are always a great help on this thread with all your POP expertise ....so thank you! And what's up with no trip scheduled??? That you need to recitfy immediately... We all need lots of love, don't we??

Oh, what a great surprise for your DD! I would fail miserably at keeping the secret. You all will have a great time at MNSSHP, it's such a blast. This will be a memorable birthday for your DD ... Enjoy!!

Unless something has changed since August, there is no shower gel that I'm aware of... POP has a combo shampoo/conditioner and bath and hand soap.

for only 3 more weeks!! And buy one of the mickey duffel bags for gifts for your granddaughter.

Wow already on page 3 of the new thread

I didn't think I was that far behind, but apparently I must have stalled along the way. Such a great thread, it's already on Page 3. Happy Planning to all my fellow poppers.

We are heading down for our first stay at POP on October 20th. We have 2 rooms and I am hoping that they give us adjoining rooms - would it be better to do online check in or wait until we are there to make sure they give us adjoining?

Also, my mother has rented a scooter to get around the parks with. It is being delivered to the main lobby. Does anyone know if it can be kept and recharged in the room or is the only option out at the luggage area? I am assuming it could be quite a hike to retrieve it every morning if that is the only option.

Thanks!

Followed over from the previous thread. Thanks to everyone for making this my fav thread. I've only posted a few questions in the past, but read it daily!!! Guess I'm a "stalker"!
We will be staying our first time at PoP, Dec. 10-15. First time for a Christmas trip as well. Want the time before to go fast and then slow down that week
Thanks everyone for the wonderful posts.

Groovy!!!

See my ticker????

12 days until we're en route to Disney- that's when I've got my clock officially set for! And DD STILL doesn't know!!!

ETA- So...you probably don't see my ticker since I don't have one on here. But trust me when I tell you that it's 12 days until I leave and 13 to check into Pop! DH asked yesterday when playing on the Disney Mobile app if he needed to set a reminder about our vacation. We looked at each other and started laughing- no way am I letting him forget!

I am right there with you! I don't post much, but this is my favorite thread on the boards. Everyone is so positive, friendly and helpful.

You picked an excellent week to go to Pop. We've done that same week there for the past 3 years. So much fun!!! The crowds are great and it's really festive in all the parks. You're going to have a blast! Are you going to do MVMCP?

Are you looking for "adjoining" or "connecting"? As you probably know, connecting has a door between the 2 rooms, adjoining is nearby, but doesn't have an inside door to go back and forth between the 2 rooms.

Make sure it is listed on your room reservation, and if it is the most important request, make sure it is listed first. We have never used the on-line feature, depending on what other requests you may have, suggest you might consider using the regular check in line. I'm sure others will chime in to let you know their experiences. This summer we elected not to do online check-in, and we had connecting, 60s, upper floor request. Just remember, that with using either option, you can always speak with a CM to discuss changing your room location if you are not satified with your assigned one.

As far as the scooter, yes you can charge them in your room (which most people do I believe) or as you mentioned you can recharge them at luggage services; available on a first come basis.

Thank you, Janet B, for keeping this going! I'm sitting here, frustrated over a client project that has some issues (any Word experts out here?), but the thought of our trip -- a week from tomorrow! -- is keeping me from grumbling too loudly! And with any luck, I'll be going knowing that I'm starting a new job the next Monday.... keep your fingers crossed for me!
