I don't know for sure but I'd say there's a good chance Disney will be allowing Pop guests to use the splash pad area at AoA instead, as they tend to make those kinds of arrangements when amenities aren't available like this. If it's not obviously available, it can't hurt to ask. All the pools and the splash pad at AoA are inside gated areas so they would need to have some kind of special access allowed / an open gate or something.
Thanks. Hopefully they make arrangements to let us in at A of A, our toddler is fiercely independent and would much rather run around in a splash pad then be held in a pool!

Thanks to all the PP! You've made our decision a little easier. We have chosen Pop for our very first trip. We can't wait for June!

Kids breakfast at Pop

Sorry to bombard you! Thanks in advance!

When I got the waffles they came plain, but I observed them putting strawberry sauce on someone else's so I asked for it. I think the waffle also came with two strawberries.

The waffles and eggs were at separate stations.

Makes me smile just thinking about those great breakfasts.

I think each station has different kids meals available. Check the menus on allears.net.

Actually I checked the menus here and at allears first. The one here doesn't list breakfast at all, and the one at allears just said, "breakfast platter".

We don't have kids, so I didn't pay attention to the kid's meals that were available when we were at POP in 2011. That's why I came to this thread to ask.

Will be going back to ole homestead once again come May. I've wanted to stay at AOA since prior to opening but my car has had other ideas for me. I love POP but really want to Stay with Ariel just once, my cheapness keeps dragging me back

Anyone there recently or there now? How much of a headache is the refurb situation?

Can you request a different room?

DS13 loves the arcade and was thrilled with ping pong table by pool.

We haven't had a meal at food court but have refilled our mugs.... Always busy in there.

Also we have had great bus luck so far...... Longest wait about 8 mins.

I'll post more when I get home but just wanted to say how much we are enjoying Pop.
Happy to read that you are liking POP! And congrats on the upgrade. Bus service is usually very good at POP so it's gratifying to read its that way for you.

Enjoy! Look forward to your additional thoughts on POP.

It shouldn't affect the Hippy Dippy Pool at all in ... Disney will most likely put up some fencing around the kiddie pool. Now there may be a few more children in the pools, but can't believe it would be anything significant, especially given the fact that is is mid-Feb. The movies are shown between the 60s and 70s, and not near the kiddie pool area, so no, it shouldn't be a factor.

Well, we're still happy you are staying at POP, no matter what the reason! (btw, Ithe BB included AOA in the discounts, soooo maybe a return trip is in order to get that Ariel room??)

Believe that utkscvol1 was only there for the long weekend....but actually Marla still has a point.... if you are leaving today, than it's moot, but it seems like this has really effected your stay....in hindsight checking to see if another room in another area would of been worth it if even for one or two nights. Hopefully you will never have to encounter a siituation like this one again.

to the DIS boards and the POP Century FAQ thread!

Hopefully you will fall in love with POP like the rest of us! Stick around, there are plenty of posters that are very knowledgable about POP that would be more than willing to answer any questions you may have.
