Val, behind on posting, but wanted to say have a wonderful time (which I gather you are doing ) Bldg 3 is great, and you accidently got a pool view

And thanks for all the investigative POP updates.

As always, thanks for all your insight on POP and Disney in general.

anyway, food court was great for lunch, and I liked walking over to AOA (WOW!) and looking around.... all in all a very nice place, I wouldn't mind a longer stay here again sometime! it's very upbeat,and being out by the lake makes it wonderful! Room was also ready before noon,which was GREAT.
Happy that you were groovin' on the POP vibe, even if for one night

DH and I will be arriving at POP in 34 days
This will be our first time staying onsite and this thread has helped us out so much!
We are planning on calling in our requests later this week... We would like to have a quiet room with a lake view- We are thinking about requesting building 4 or 5 on the top floor.

I look forward to learning more about the awesome hotel before we get there!

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

We just called to see if we can get another family's room close to ours as they said they would try their best.

Anyone ever has success getting a family member or friend's room close to your own room at the Pop, possibly in the same building?

Yes. The key is that if they aren't close when you check in then ask them if there is any way to get them close. Often things change after room assignments are done, so there may not have been any way to make it work when the rooms were first assigned, but there might have been an opening since then that they can find. Just ask politely and they will check again for you. Hopefully they can make it work to begin with though, so you won't have to have them check!

to the Dis and the POP Century thread!

Bdg 4 or 5, top floor is a good choice. If you booked a standard room, the lakeview rooms will fall under that category. Bldg 3 is also nice for lake views.

Hope you enjoy POP as much as the rest of us! Stick around the thread here for lots of great info from all the POPers who frequent the thread.

No boats or anything like that on the lake, just ducks!

You can absolutely see AoA across the lake, they are directly across from POP and just a walk across the bridge from POP. You can see the top of Illunminations fireworks from the 4th floor of a few of the buildings, 2, 3 and 4.

FYI: All of this info was also available in the first couple of posts on the first page.

One little spark of inspiration is at the heart of all creation. Right at the start of anything that's new, one little spark lights up for you.

Yes, we've had family located nearby. We had our two reservations connected, but didn't want connecting rooms. May I just say, be careful what you wish for . . .
