Oh, and they happened to open a whole new resort, Art of Animation, across Hourglass Lake so you can walk across the bridge and visit there too. Just stay out of the pools!
Stay out of the pool? I thought if you were staying at any of the value resorts, you could use any of those pools???

Nooooo...only sisters resorts can share pools, and POP and AoA are not considered sister resorts. They usually have the gates set so you have to swipe your AoA KTTW card just to get into the pools. In any case POP Century guests are not allowed in the AoA pools. The only exception was when the heaters were down in the Hippy Dippy Pool they did allow POPers over in their main pool, but that was it.

I have requested lakeside top floor after reading what you guys ave written lol
You can request a rollaway bed from Housekeeping when you arrive. You can ask about it in advance, but they will not guarantee the availability. It is $15 per night. I've seen several rollaways at Pop and, if you do a search of the boards for "pop" and "rollaway," you'll find where several people have gotten them.

This is not correct. The rollaways are narrow and they fit okay. I'll agree that it will be a tight fit, but many people do it. Also, as I noted earlier, they will not guarantee that a rollaway will be available.

We haven't stayed at pop in 4 years- we have stayed at cbr and pofq. Using our ap room discount for a long weekend to get a discounted room at pop. We haven't been there since the refurb-are the fridges the same size as the ones at the mods or are they smaller?

Just wondering; does Pop have the RFID door locks yet? Any guesses on if they'll be installed by the time I arrive on 1/24 if they aren't already?

Same size, but a little different configuration.

16 days until our first stay at Pop!

H & I are taking an adult only trip to the World for a long weekend (thur-Sun) to celebrate my 30th birthday... turning 30 should be a little bit easier in Disney, right??!

This will be our second trip to Disney together -- our first was less than 8 weeks ago!

We went in November with our 3 girls, stayed at AoA in a Nemo suite (which we LOVED!) and had an amazing trip. I couldn't wait to get back and when H said we could do whatever I wanted for my 30th birthday my mind went straight to Disney World!

We have a jam packed 2 days in the parks with lots of hopping so we can hit all of our favorite rides and shows and try some things that we missed in November.

I am excited to try a new resort. I'm going to try not to compare it to AoA because it's apples to oranges, but I'm hopeful that we'll enjoy our stay just as much!

Thanks for all of the info in this thread

Well they have started "the dreams of forgotten items" and they start out bad lol

First I forgot both cameras which I might add are already in my park bag for that very reason and the craziest part was I dreamed up this entirely different disney resort that doesn't even exist then I couldn't find the check in counter and with every CM I ask for help and would follow it would lead me nowhere outside,end of a hall, bathrooms,but I must say that was a pretty cool resort


Ill be at POP in 13 days to go!!! (hopefully)

Dining plan and POP

I know this is technically a dining plan question, but here it is anyway: We are set to stay at POP in 2 weeks and will have the QSDP.

I know the dining plan includes the refillable mugs that can be filled as much as you want at your resort. My question is: if you are getting a meal on the DDP at the food court, can you fill your mug with soda AND grab a bottle of milk/juice/water and not have to pay OOP for the bottled drink? I was thinking this would be a good way to get some drinks for breakfast/take to the parks....I thought I had read a dining review a while back about doing this, but of course I can't find that thread!

Thanks a bunch!!!
