If it is a medical need I wonder if they don't have a fridge with freezer that they could put in your room.

Well you could ask, it will not hurt.

Decided not to bother requesting the king bed. I would be a little disappointed if I got an accessible room with no tub. I like baths. Husband's comment was that he didn't care. He would sleep in a storage room as long as it had a roof and was at Disney! We can sleep in our own beds like June and Ward Cleaver....

Down to 7 days and some hours... We go inspect the kennel tomorrow to see if it will suit the dawg. I suspect it will. He is an enthusiastic sort of dawg; he likes everything except cats and thunder, which terrify him.

That's a sweet thought. I did cancel Pop. The price of that villa you gave the link of is about the same price as Pop.

It's my son I have to keep cool, not a medicine. Last year we did some very creative cooling at SWW, but we had a ton of frozen water. This year he will be sporting hand held airconditioners too.

That was suggested to me on my PTR too. It's ok, really. We'll stay at Pop another time.

As I mentioned, we had two portable airconditioners and we'll have a cooler bag filled with frozen waters. Who knows, maybe this year things will change and there will be more SWW in the airconditioning?

Lots more tour groups than the last few years. Haven't seen any on busses. Pop bus service has been really decent. Had a cm say the Brazilian groups are stealing and expect to not have to pay for things others pay for. We haven't encounter any more rudeness from them than anyone else though. Pleasently surprised to see Main Street Electrical Parade is running. Haven't had to wear a coat, nice surprise. Under the sea ride well made, glad they stopped making what I like to refer to as plywood rides. If this is your first stop, take the train to Frontier Land. We thought is was faster than getting off at Barn stormer train stop.

Have you tried frogg toggs? We bought some for our August trip, one dd doesn't tolerate heat well and they worked great!

Wow, you can get a whole home for about the same price as the pop.

When we were there at the beginning of January, there was a BTG that we kept running into a Pop but they really didn't inconvenience us any. They weren't rude or anything at all. One morning they were at the bus stop to go to MK but it seems someone noticed quickly because 2 buses came at once and the tour group and a few others filled the first and the second was enough to fit the rest of us!

Who else is staying at POP on or around May 15-22? There's a couple others over on the SWW thread. Looking to see if anyone wants to do a meetup at all?

Down side? I am having lower and lower expectations for limited time Magic. Now Disney thinks clicking a button on a web page is "magic"??? And you get nothing for it? And it is for a merchandise logo for a different year entirely?????

On the up side, checked out the kennel and I'm sure the dawg will have a blast. They have horses and fainting goats in property, big play yards for the dogs, and very nice folks. And they were having a half off outside special, so it will only be $10 a day! (We provide food.) That will pay for 8 fufu drinks. Dawg is still winter-plump and hairy, so he won't mind.

And it is finally less than a week til I am at Pop!!!

I tried to take the purple out of my hair so it doesn't come off on the sheets, but even the super oops color remover has little effect. You will spot me by my bleach blond hair with a hot pink stripe down middle. At least the color seems to have stopped coming off randomly. I won't remember your usernames but feel free to randomly say hi! I'll say hi back!

Katie (purple person)

Not that brand, but we have tried other cooling towels and pads, and the only cooling vests we could find approved for kids. Spent a crazy amount of money on cooling products.

We got 5 to 10 minutes out of most products. 20 minutes out of the cooling vest. (He can't use the adult cooling vests they have for MS patients because the ice packs would hurt him since he isn't the right proportions.)

They all don't seem to work with humidity. The frozen water bottles kept in a cooler bag til needed seem to last the longest. I also keep a damp cloth in the cooler bag too. We keep him outside as little as possible. He spends alot of time in stores and indoors during the hot months. He's just loving this 70's weather we are having now since he can be outside.

Not sure about other brands but those ones are reallu easy to "recharge" or make cold again, run under water or we'd pour some water on it and they seemed to work for a bit. Good luck!!! I know it can be so hard!

I don't know if this had been posted previously, but I just arrived at Pop for a fun solo weekend and there are RFID card readers on the room doors now!
