Bags of bagels
Cream Cheese
Cartons of OJ
Boxes of donuts

As you can see, I am looking to purchase some breakfast items for the room. I've done a "mock" Garden Grocer order and still haven't reached the $40 minimum (plus the $12 delivery fee). Anyway, what breakfast items are available to purchase without buying at the food court.

Thanks!!!

There are tons of POPers who probably have a concrete answer for you, they may chime in..

You did not list water, fyi have heard they sell a case at AoA food court.

Sandi!!
I don't know if they sell bags of bagels, but they have them in the bakery case that you could buy several of. I saw everything you asked for in some form while there last week

They don't sell bags of bagels, at least not since my last visit. Bagged bagels (usually mini ones) are actually something we pack ourselves in our checked luggage, along with a jar of peanut butter.

I would just check in when you get there. When you call, you aren't really getting the resort you are getting a call center. So IMO I really don't see the point. I have found in MY experience if you explain nicely, they will do their best to get you a room early if one is available.
I have a medical condition and we were checking in one trip and arrived early (several hrs prior to check in) and I was in agony! to the point of wishing I hadn't come and they found a room for me. I didn't want to go to a park. I desperately needed a bed! I guess that's why I love POP. I find them to be as accommodating as they can possibly be! Good Luck!

Did you book a std room? you have a better chance of getting a king bed in the std category. If king is the most important thing I would make it my ONLY request.
Good Luck to your DD!! And maybe we'll cross paths while we are there!

HI There.. thanks for such a fast response.. Im a bit slow on the return .... Just got DD from UNIV .. finished Christmas shopping .. now to tackle DCP shopping.. Bet your DD is ecstatic.. mine is. what is your DD role? Custodial is my DDs role.
Not really going to be thinking I will find any real deals.. just kinda want to check out the hotels.. so my wee way of checking them will be to make a game out of .. kinda kill two birds with one stone. I will be most likely only renting a car for the day of checkin. We were hoping her friend who is Seasonal could get us in on a day pass but of course the dates fall on Blackout dates..
Have a wonderful time with your family..and thanks for the comment

We walked out the bus area and took the first bus to AK where we caught a bus to POFQ/POR. After there we took a bus to MK and did the monorail resorts. Took about 5 hours, then we had to head back to Pop for ME.

Thanks Bear_mom.. this is just like what I wanted to do. I will be trying to get in as many of the resorts as possible. Hopefully I can find one that I REALLY want to come back to and stay while DD is doing her program. How many resorts are found on the Monorail system? How many are accessed via boat? I understand many of them I will have to either reach via the MK area. I think it may be more feasible for me to limit my hunt and find to the resorts accessed via the mainstream transportation based from MK or DTD. I think it will be fun just to try anyway it works out..

From the monorail at MK you can hit 3: Contemporary, Poly, and the Grand Floridian.

By boat from either the International Gateway in Epcot or Hollywood Studios you can hit: Boardwalk, Swan/Dolphin (not technically Disney resorts, but still pretty), Yahct/Beach Club.

DTD really only has easy access to either Saratoga Spring (DVC) by walking or POR/POFQ via boat.

4 + Infant

Are you able to have 4 people (2 adults and 2 ten year olds) plus an infant in a pack n play in one room at Pop. We really want to stay at Pop with our family for our upcoming trip but the website says max 4 to a room and my SIL's family would need 4 + pack n play. Is that a problem?

You can have 4 plus an child under 3 in a pack n play. I think it will be a tight squeeze tho.

I know when we stayed at POP in 2010 it had their own transportation. I'm going again in Feb. and just wanted to know if its still like that or are the buses shared with AOA.

Still has it's own bus. AOA has separate bus and bus stops from Pop.
