could anyone please tell me if the TV's at POP have an AV jack where you can plug in a portable DVD player to watch on the TV. Just have my running theme movies I like to watch before I run. Can definitely watch on the portable, but would be easier on the TV. Thanks in Advance. Cant believe I will be there is 5 days. WOW

I do not remember seeing any large groups of them on the buses we rode.

First Time Popping

Hello fellow POPpers! DH and I just switched our reservation to POP for our anniversary in June! We are staying in a pool preferred room. Is it safe to assume we will be in the 60s? We would be very excited to be so close to Petals

We were just there in December & had booked a preferred pool view room. It was in the 60's but our first room given was absolutely horrible & not what I paid for. No view whatsoever & as far away from pool, food court, etc. as it could get. Getting it switched was a pain, but eventually it got done.

That's no good! Do you remember where in the 60s where they tried to put you at first?

It would be safe to say yes. But when you are assigned your room make sure you are getting what you paid for. Make sure they don't stick you with 50's facing the pool because that would be the wrong room category. But I'm sure it happens and some people don't know the difference.

And a 50's pool view is quite lovely and peaceful and most enjoyable! But there is NO way I would pay the most expensive rates for a horribly noisy 60's preferred pool view!!! I'd ALMOST rather be stuck out in the 80's/90's!!

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

Same here you would need to pay me. I prefer the back side of the resort.

I wish I could find some photo evidence for you, but I want to say that yes, the current flat panel TVs in Disney resorts have standard a/v inputs. I know I've seen close-up photos of the inputs but I cannot locate any those photos today.
