Thanks for reminding me to call to request a king. We asked for top floor lake view as quiet is most important attribute for us, but would rather have king if possible as I still like my 50's hubby.

My favorite section/building to request is 50's building 1, and I always book a standard room.

Building 1 is relatively close to the main building, and has a little short cut around it to get to the bus area. For a quick dip I like the bowling pool.

Can you fit the 1/2 gallon of milk you can buy in the food court in the mini frig in the room, if you can, how much else could you fit and are they in all the rooms?
Thanks.

Yes you can fit a 1/2 gal and they are in all rooms, there is a picture on the first page of this thread that shows the fridge with stuff in it (not sure how to quote that too)

There is a picture in the 2nd post of the first page showing a mini fridge stuffed, gives you a good idea of what all you can fit in there.

Yes, there is a mini fridge in every room.

ETA: MinnieMO posted at the same time as me

And here is the picture from the first page of the mini fridge:

I have been busy, busy planning since I'm within 14 days before we are on the road. As I planned my route I see that we should arrive at POP at approx 2:00am-3:00am. If we arrive during that time should we attempt to check in? Do you think the front desk will let me check in that early and let me access my room if it is ready? Or will they look at me like a compete idiot? I won't mind sleeping in my car for 5 or so hours, I will be in Disney . But my kids on the other hand may be a different story

I think they can check you in at 6:00 a.m. and there is no guarantee that a room would be ready. They always try to accommodate people though. If you wanted in the room earlier, I think you'd have to have a reservation for the prior night and they'd give you a "late" check in.

I just got back from a stay at Pop last weekend. We were in Bldg 3 (50's section - Tramp building) on the first floor (on the side of Tramp farther from Classic Hall). Our door had the new RFID lock, but I noticed that not all rooms in our building had the new locks yet (the same floor rooms closer to Classic Hall had the old style locks).

Thanks I had read somewhere I thought that they would all be done by the 21st which is the day I get there, 1) I'm hoping that my room has it just because its new lol 2) Because I don't wanna have to wait on them if they decide to change it in the middle of a day I decide to go back. Just my luck

Jeff, have a wonderful time! Yes, will a Pref Pool view it definitely limits your chances, but you may get lucky! You got the right attitude about it.

Enjoy! When you return, we would be interested in your impressions of POP, if you would like to share.
